### Re: [PREMIUM Prize] Initech XL: World Extravaganza [4th Rd]

So now it's everyone from line #23 and above who qualify for Round 5.

Ratrin holds the tiebreaker over Enormastitz, having defeated him 1v1 this round on Greater China.

However, with the magic number now being 97 points, wrexham is now mathematically back in the race.

Bottom line... 19 of 20 qualifiers are known. Last spot down to wrexham and Ratrin.

on a terminator maps if somehow the game reaches 30 rounds with a few survivors does the player with the most troops win as in regular play , or does the 5 points not get awarded ? ,

The 5 points get awarded for winning the map, even if via the round limit. You'll see on the scoreboard, for some of the terminator games, there is a "+0" notation. That means the player won the map via the round limit and didn't score any eliminations. In such a case, they get the 5 points only. The maximum score on a terminator map is 13 points, which means a map win and all 4 eliminations (noted as "+8" on the scoreboard).

Make sense? The short answer is that the 5 points for a map win ALWAYS get awarded.

Okay, mathematically, no one can catch Ratrin for what is now 20th place. So he gets the final spot even though the last three games are wrapping up.

All Standard and Terminator invites are out for Round 5. Assassin and 1v1 will come shortly--I hope tomorrow. Then it's a race to the finish!

As we wind down the tournament, a player's name will be highlighted on the left in maroon if they are still active in Round 5 but cannot score enough points to overtake the leader.

Thanks, guys.

Board is updated. Looks to be 8 players mathematically alive for the championship. Realistically, I think it's down to four.

It's now a 3-person race. We have a new leader, t4mcr53s2, for the first time in 3 rounds, but rcrfitz does have games in hand. shoop76 is also alive.

### Re: [PREMIUM Prize] Initech XL: World Extravaganza [5th Rd]

Yeah, I can't record your +2 until that game is over (or you're eliminated, which won't happen now). So it looks like you'll get 7 or 9 points from that game. Will still be behind.

That leaves just the Vancouver game for you. You'll need that win. If you get it, rcfritz could still pass you, but it would be really difficult because he'd need to win both his terminator games.

It really all comes down to Vancouver #1 at this point.

Just two active games left and everything is contingent on Vancouver #1...

Of course the tournament ends while I'm traveling. Give me a few days to update everything officially but, yes, rcfritz has officially won the tournament, so congratulations to him! And thanks to everyone for their participation.

A more formal congratulations to rcfritz who, with 185 points, captures the Initech XL: World Extravaganza title. With the trophy comes one free year of premium, which I presume the tournament directors will help you claim (let me know if there are any issues). rcfritz was consistent throughout the tournament and was the only player to score more than 30 points in four different rounds. He outpaced t4mcr53s2, who finished second with 177 points.

Special congrats go to the five players who scored the most points in each round. They are as follows (and I'll humbly ask the tournament directors for some sort of recognition here, as a victory over 8 games is more than some entire tournaments!):

Round 1 Africa & Oceania - t4mcr53s2
Round 2 Europe - mzomboracz001
Round 3 Latin America - shoop76
Round 4 Asia - Gromph
Round 5 USA & Canada - freyme

Again, congrats to rcfritz. Thanks to all who participated and I look forward to seeing each of you in future Initechs!
