Our whole division could end up in a tie. What then? A five player game?

A 5-player standard game, yes, would be the procedure in this very rare instance.

In this case, comparing head-to-head results would have the same effect, since all five players are tied, and would have 2 wins each.

A good resolution for what, sometimes, appear to be luck-based 1v1 games.

Good question ;)

August 18 Update

Twelve days since an update, yes it has arrived long overdue! August can be a life-changing month for a person of my age, where "real" world, should we choose to call it so, takes precedence over the reputation of daily tourney updates. Hope the stock hasn't taken too much of a hit. ;)

Anyway, it is my pleasure now to commence the first of the Wildcard games, where third-placed players that decided to take part in the conference play format have a final chance to advance with a clutch 1v1 game.

As promised, I'm working on those stats from 1v1 play and have nearly finished. Some interesting findings should follow :o

August 22 Update

I've created the first of the Conference games, where we'll finally progress from the 1v1 stage to the 4-5 Player Standard stage. For some of you, here's a new chance for you to show off your more traditional risk-taking skills. Those that can adapt well from 1v1 play to more involved play will find success.

August 22

Wildcard games for third-placed players of the British Isles Conference have been created.

Conference play has begun for the Australia, Balkan Peninsula, BeNeLux, and Caribbean Islands conferences.

Correct. Players will be ranked according to their performance in the game, so the last two alive will advance. The third place player qualifies for an additional Wildcard game against another third place player from another division, to advance.
