Two scenarios are possible:
1) If team Mishalex/Momo33/QuikSilver win their game, we will have 3 other team tied and going to a "Tie Round Robin" stage per rules (see 1st post for details).
2) If team Mishalex/Momo33/QuikSilver lose their game, we will have 8 finalist with no tie stage required, only http://www.random.org will decide the ranking position for team #6, #7 & #8.
Below is the actual overall ranking showing only the teams are still in the race!!!!!!!! (team Mishalex/Momo33/QuikSilver is showing #6 with 1 point less than the other, its because they are still playing at least in one bracket and the other are out from all brackets)
4.Jimmy V/Faro/Benzorrr 19pts

At this point "amount of points" doesn't count anymore...its a regular 1/4 Final barcket.
Points were given in the bracket rounds only to made the overall ranking having the eights best team to be qualify.
Hope this answer helps...
When all six brackets are completed, Team points are added from each bracket, the overall Top 4 Teams will play a Semi Final using their overall ranking as follow:
--> #1 ranked will play #4 ranked & #2 ranked will play #3 ranked.
--> Winner of each Semi Final will roll to the Big Final
*** PER VOTE RESULTS, BELOW (RED SECTION ONLY) IS THE NEW FORMAT WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER ALL 6 BRACKETS ARE COMPLETED ***
When all six brackets are completed, Team points are added from each bracket, the overall Top 8 Teams will be place in bracket starting with Quarter Final using their overall ranking as follow:
--> #1 ranked will play #8 ranked & #2 ranked will play #7 ranked, and so on.
--> Winner of each round will advance to the next bracket stage until 2 teams are left to play the Big Final.

It is to be regretted that the populist change of rules was undertaken after the tournie had commenced. Although leading throughout the tournament and winning three of the five brackets, the team of gorehound/lokisgal/Redfelt is now out after getting a dice hammering where we couldn't even make odds of 5 to 1 work in our favour, so consistently bad were our dice. Three turns we couldn't even take a territ, and 10v3 would end 3v2, etc etc
I think the organizer of the tournament should decide in advance which is more important to him in deciding a winner for these games, to see consistent play, or throw it all up in a lottery at the end. I am very disappointed by the action of throwing it open to a vote (which, of course, was always going to be carried as the lesser teams saw it as a chance to qualify even without being consistently good at play) AFTER play had begun. That is not the time to do it. If that is what you want, do it before the tournie kicks off, when it is in the rules.
