Games 1 and 2 are out, more to come when I get time. Scoreboard is up. Remember to put your prediction for the Winner and the Victim in the chat during the first round of the game. Yes, I know this means whoever goes last has a slight advantage in the predictions, but "them's the breaks."

I divided the players into 5 groups, 3 of 6 players, 1 of 7 players, 1 of 8 players to set up for 33 players. At the end of round 1 we'll have potentially 30 winners, and 30 victims, and you can be in both groups. Should be fun going forward. The groups were randomized for each game, so you'll play different opponents and be in different groups each game.

Good luck, everyone -- and have fun!

All round 1 games out. I began updating the scoreboard, too. There are too many people missing out on making predictions -- don't forget to make a winner and victim prediction in the chat on your first round!

Scoreboard updated - interesting results, so far. More killers than victims, and several multiple game winners.

That's happened several times in this tournament, and it's why I refer to 'Winner', rather than 'Killer'. I'm considering a way to deal with this in my next assassin tournament, so stay tuned. In any case, it's part of the game -- happens all the time in assassin, either through carelessness or cluelessness. It's not something to get too excited about.

Please note that I posted this as an epic game before the accidental taking out of the wrong player, I wasn't pointing out the mistake, but that (until that point) this was a long epic struggle.

I can't help but notice that cyan, in 'messing up', managed to secure a correct killer prediction. Not that I think that was his reasoning, but it's a consideration....

The only way to get eliminated in this tournament is by mediocrity. Winners advance, as do victims. There's a fair number of players who will advance in both brackets.

Re: Killer:Victim:Detective:Coroner; 2 games left in Rd. 1

Postby danalan on Sun Jun 07, 2009 12:37 pm

Scoreboard updated, including new data from the Tournament Stats tool. Might be helpful for handicapping in round 2. Only 2 games left in round 1, so we'll be starting again soon with 5 new games each.

I also updated the rules regarding reserves -- basically: if you are eliminated, you're a reserve.

Re: Killer:Victim:Detective:Coroner -- Round 2 Starting

Postby danalan on Fri Jun 12, 2009 4:39 pm

Round 2 beginning!

20 players (out of a possible 30) won at least 1 game in Round 1, and advance in the Winner's Bracket: 2 groups of 7, 1 of 6, random assignments for 5 games each.

21 players advance in the Victim's Bracket, 3 groups of 7.

Players who didn't advance will act as reserves, in the following order:

milo67
Pwyll
nashlloyd
MoB Deadly
iblaskov
Zorbas

Be sure and check out the scoreboard, there's good statistical data there which might help predictions.

All round 2 games out, reminders being sent now.

Note that winners bracket group 2, and victims bracket group 3 games will not start earlier than Thursday of this week due to a single player's pre-arranged absence.

Don't forget to make your predictions -- I'm instituting a rule change for them: you have 3 rounds to make your predictions. This will increase the number of correct predictions, and the number of predictions overall.
