Yeah, and it gets even more interesting when you consider that Burundi and Serbia are the only teams still competing in all 5 events!

Well, so much for so little! Ladies and gentlemen, this tourney is about to get even more interesting!

Burundi has just completed a sweep of Serbia in the cross-country relay, and Turkey and Bhutan have combined to eliminate Burundi from the shooting competition.

This means that it is officially impossible for any one team to win all 5 individual events, as all 72 teams have been eliminated from at least 1 of the 5.

Are your knuckles white yet? I know mine are! :D

Day 4 action in the Fencing and Show Jumping competitions has now concluded, and only 1 Shooting game remains undecided.
Nepal still holds the overall lead, but Serbia has trimmed that lead to a measly 2 Standings Points.
At this point, the competition to top the overall standings is a two-horse race, as third-place Pakistan now trails Serbia by 12 Standings Points.

I will do my best to keep you guys updated as more results come in.

Postby nicestash on Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:50 pm

Here is an in-depth analysis between Nepal and Serbia. I tried to get the spoilers to work, but I don't know how to use them :oops:

Team Fencing
NEP:69 
SRB:70
Both teams left in the quarterfinals, with Serbia set to play against #6 ranked Burundi and Nepal ready to take on #1 ranked Guyanas.

Shooting
NEP:44
SRB:54
Both teams are eliminated

Show Jumping
NEP:69
SRB: 49
Serbia has the ability to gain or lose a lot of points here as the standings are super tight right around here, while Nepal will fluctuate very few points as the leaders in this event pull away.

Synchronized Swimming
NEP:63
SRB:65
Anything can happen here

Cross-Country Relay
NEP:66
SRB:71
Serbia got swept in the round of 16 while Nepal sits at a 2-2 tie with Pakistan. If Nepal can win in this round, this has the potential to be a 10 point turnaround in their favor.

Overall
NEP:311
SRB:309
This is going to come down to Serbia’s ability to win in Show Jumping and Nepal’s ability to survive in the cross-country relay. At this point, anything can happen!

Now that I am home and can update this tournament regularly, I should hope it will start moving quickly again.

Round 2 of the Shooting competition is now complete - congratulations to the 8 shooters who will advance to Round 3:
neanderpaul14 - Afghanistan
KraphtOne - Bhutan
TheCrown - Iran
kizkiz - St. Lucia
cwinslow22 - Mexico
General Bax - Puerto Rico
gubarretto - Sierra Leone
Peteee - Turkey

betiko wrote:what about burundi? are we far behind now overall?

Depends what you define as "far behind." I remind you, however, that Day 4 is only the halfway point of the tournament.
At this moment, you are in fourth place:
2 points behind Pakistan,
12 points behind Serbia, and
16 points behind Nepal.
To give you a bit more detail, I will expand nicestash's most excellent analysis to include third-place Pakistan and fourth-place Burundi.

Fencing (for some reason, spoilers wouldn't work - but only for this event)
NEP: 69

SRB: 70
PAK: 57
BDI: 67
Pakistan is the only team of the 4 not to have progressed to the quarterfinals, so they are locked in at 57 points.
The match between #3 Serbia and #6 Burundi will certainly be an interesting one. The two fencers know each other fairly well, having recently faced off in the Round of 16 in the Cross-Country Relay, with smegal69 of Burundi victorious over mviola of Serbia.
#4 Nepal will face #1 Guyana, but that fact should not do much to dampen Leehar's confidence, as he knocked off then-#1 Dutch fencer notyou2 in the Round of 16, while Guyana's fencer richman688 is coming off a relatively easy sweep of #16 Eternal Shadow of Pakistan.
Since only 8 teams remain at this stage of the competition, Nepal, Burundi, and Serbia are each guaranteed between 65 and 72 points. Thus, there is not much difference between 1st and 8th and this event probably will not have as much of an impact on the overall results with the overall gaps as wide as they are.

show: Show Jumping


show: Synchronized Swimming

Of course, anything can still happen, as this is only the halfway point of the tourney!

Thanks very much for that analysis sempai, it's very interesting!
I have a question though: for a bracket round, fencing for example, does a round of 16 appearance guarantee you a top 16 finish? Pakistan got swept in the round of 16th and are in 16th place, but they only have 3 points whereas several people below them have 3.5 or even 4 points.

Whoops! Sorry I haven't answered that question yet, nicestash - it's a good one.
Yes, a Round of 16 appearance in fencing or cross-country relay does guarantee you a top-16 finish, just as a Round 3 appearance in Shooting guarantees you a top-8 finish.
My reasoning for that is that a team should not finish higher in the standings than a team that stayed in the competition longer.

Day 4 action in the Synchronized Swimming event is finally complete!
Nepal and Serbia have held on to first and second place, respectively, and are still separated by 4 points, each having lost 2 in Synchronized Swimming.
Pakistan has suffered a slight setback, losing 3 points to fall 13 points behind Nepal, and, more importantly, allowing Burundi to take third place after gaining 4 points to move within 12 of Nepal.
I, for one, am very excited to see the results of the cross-country relay and how they impact the overall standings at the very end of Day 4.
5 relays are still ongoing, but they look to be just winding down at this point.

That win by swimmerdude (Preston) in the 7th game of the Nepal v Pakistan cross country relay was huge! I'm not sure if you saw the game, but Preston pulled off a win with a lucky 3 card set after being knocked down to a single territory. It was a very good game, and nerve-racking for me to watch!

I decided to update the analysis of the top 4 contenders for the end of day 4. A lot of the rankings were unchanged, so I copied a bunch of sempaispellcheck’s stuff (my additions will be bolded).

The overall rankings have changed a bit with Burundi moving up from 4th to 2nd and Serbia and Pakistan dropping down a spot to 3rd and 4th respectively. Nepal still holds the top spot. The scores are:
NEP: 314

BDI: 306

SRB: 296

PAK: 290



Fencing (I also couldn't get the spoilers to work for this event)
NEP: 69

BDI: 67
SRB: 70
PAK: 57
Pakistan is the only team of the 4 not to have progressed to the quarterfinals, so they are locked in at 57 points.
The match between #3 Serbia and #6 Burundi will certainly be an interesting one. The two fencers know each other fairly well, having recently faced off in the Round of 16 in the Cross-Country Relay, with smegal69 of Burundi victorious over mviola of Serbia.
#4 Nepal will face #1 Guyana, but that fact should not do much to dampen Leehar's confidence, as he knocked off then-#1 Dutch fencer notyou2 in the Round of 16, while Guyana's fencer richman688 is coming off a relatively easy sweep of #16 Eternal Shadow of Pakistan.
Since only 8 teams remain at this stage of the competition, Nepal, Burundi, and Serbia are each guaranteed between 65 and 72 points. Thus, there is not much difference between 1st and 8th and this event probably will not have as much of an impact on the overall results with the overall gaps as wide as they are.
However, after being swept by Burundi in the cross country relay, Serbia will have to get some revenge and knock them out of this event in order to regain the number 2 spot and potentially challenge Nepal for the lead.

As nicestash was so quick to notice, Day 4 officially concluded yesterday afternoon. I have been and will be creating Day 5 games and sending out invites as I find the time, so please be patient.
At least one player needs to be replaced at this point, and more may soon join him, so if you know anyone who would like to get in on the action, please have them post in the thread.

Thank you, and good luck to all of you in Day 5!

Btw, not that it really matters, but I was curious about the scoring for the bottom 3 fencing finishers:

URU 1 3 Earned 4 GS1 losses in total of 36 rounds.
SAM 1 2 Earned 4 GS1 losses in total of 38 rounds.
LCA 1 1 Earned 4 GS1 losses in total of 44 rounds.

Shouldn't LCA and URU be switched? In the past, lasting more rounds before being eliminated was better.
