At long last Blitz Tournament 0029 is finally ready to kick off! After two weeks of rounding up players, we have finally landed at 22 players. As this number is not a power of 2, some players will not be competing in Round 1.
For any curious newcomers, a blitz tournament is an organized event where players compete 1 vs. 1 using the Blitz game format supported on Planets Nu since February 2011. The players are usually organized in a single-elimination bracket.
Since Blitz Tournament 0029 was originally aiming for 32 players, Round 1 would normally be called the Round of 32 (Ro32), but I believe it is better to consider it to be a qualifying round to workaround the partial compliment. I look forward to the many fireworks that will go off throughout this tournament!
The prizes for this tournament are as follows:
- 1st place: 3 months premium membership
- 2nd place: 2 months premium membership
- 3rd place: 1 month premium membership
And here are the participants as shown from the detailed bracket:
|Emork the Lizard King||Fleet Admiral||2||Rebel||Lizard|
|Lord Helmet||Fleet Admiral||4||Fascist||Fed|
|BlueJay||Fleet Admiral||5||Bird Man||None|
|Big Beefer||Captain||16||Robotic||Bird Man|
Good Luck, Commanders!
Wow, nice line-up !! Good Luck everyone!
I’m a little confused. I signed up for the tournament about 2 months ago. It sounds like you didn’t get enough people for a 32 person bracket. Am I missing something? I thought I’d at least get to play one elimination round.
Earlier this month, I attempted to rally up as many players as I could so that I could get this going. About 10 players didn’t respond even after I posted on the activity feed (a.k.a the Black Hole), although I did manage to get two new signups to offset these losses.
I believe I even attempted to PM everyone that didn’t already catch my public post. The best that can be done is to wait for someone in the bracket to go missing.
Edit: New replacement idea
