    That Frood guy is still around and checking on this thread regularly! I sent a message to spicy crab about the match two days ago but have not yet gotten back a reply.

    So...we have 3 open matches. Can the players involved report on their progress in meeting up? When will these matches happen?

    I should have my internet connection back tonight and will be able to play my match tonight hopefully.

    good to hear, lets try to have this tournie done before the next patch which they say will be done around mid september

    Still no matches played since August. When do we just move everyone who is still interested on and DQ the non-communicators?

    I'm still trying to catch Majin online now that i have an internet connection. I'll send a PM as well to try and get things going.

    Thanks! I share Gabb's sentiment about getting this done before any patching.

    I admit this tourney has not been at the forefront of my mind. Still, I am interested in playing ThatFrood, I was on all night tonight but didn't see him.

    DQ me if necessary, not a big deal :/

    you guys are getting DQ crazy, its not a big deal I think the tournie will end before the patch, I haven't been on much either but I will try too once Beitai responds to my PM. Try to setup a time range with Thatfrood spicy
  13. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    Hmmm well I'm awaiting word for Beitai, but he might have to drop out of the tourney as well due to internet issues ( wow it seems like everyone is having them now adays ), I'll keep you guys posted.

    really? That's bizarre! I popped onto bnet a few times to see if you were on!
    Give me a time, I'll be there.
  17. SpicyCrab

    SpicyCrab Well-Known Member

    I'll probably be on tonight around 8:00-10:00 PM PST.

    My game time is pretty erratic :/

    Gabb New Member

    sorry to hear that spicy, moving on with the tournament then, brackets and matches updated on OP
  22. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    alright guys lets try to get this show on the road, I'm going to have my match tonight, whats the status on the Logo vs McConic and IceHazard vs ThatFrood matches? I see you guys on pretty often so you guys should coordinate and set a time range to get that 1 game in.

    Brackets updated, matches to come:

    Gabb vs Thelo on Blistering Sands

    Logo vs MrConic on Scrap Station

    Ice Hazard vs ThatFrood on Delta Quadrant
  23. Gabb

    wow a very shocking game showing the dominance of terran air power, nicely done mr conic, brackets updated

    note: starting with the N bracket ( which is the grand final ), wins are determined not by single matches but by best 2 out of 3 games. So therefore if someone from the losers bracket were to win the tourney they would have to beat Mr conic in two sets which would require that they beat him in a best out of 3 games, twice. He only needs to win 1 set of best 2 out of 3 to take the trophy I made.

    Grats on semi-finals, MrConic!

    ::taps foot impatiently::

    Although I should probably be grateful for the delay, I was low-mid Platinum when the tourney started and Diamond now. Though I haven't been able to play much recently.
  28. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    yeah we should all really try to get our games in to end this thing before the 1.1 patch, Thatfrood and Icehazard you guys come up with a meet time yet? Majinsweet still needs to get back to me
  29. MrConic

    MrConic Member

    Thanks. Good luck to everyone else as we finish this out!

    Gabb, when the time comes, will you generate a 6-map list for the finals?

    The game was actually over before the first viking came out.
  32. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    what happened?

    and yes mr conic I will generate that list of maps for the finals

    Majinsweet please reply to my PMs when you get a chance

    I haven't studied the timings of 5-rax reaper yet.
    I didn't click on his in-construction factory (though I knew it was a factory when I scouted with lings)
    I didn't expand at 20 (normally 21, but I mis queued an extra overlord).

    The combination of all three pretty much crippled me by 24 food and reduced my chances to having to make a series of guesses vs Mr. Conic who nicely played off the map & probability with a viking play rather than the marauder/hellion push that's expected from 1 rax-tech lab -> factory opening or the effective blue flame hellion drop (though that's a bad move with the scouted roach warren).
  34. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    hmmm your right, most T players who got 1 rax-tech lab to factory would most likely go marauder/hellion but Mr Conic has been talking about pushing Terran air power in that one thread :-P he beat me too on scrap station but it was due to me completely forgetting to build banelings to counter his bio ball and instead being obsessed with muta harassing his vikings which didn't go so well and I ended up losing with like 1000 minerals/gas in the tank...dunno what happened I just zoned out and forgot to macro

    Vikings really are a great deal at 150/75 for all that they can do, I think their most effective use is in shutting down far away expansions with a quick landing harassment

    I've also been talking about going infestor/ling which has issues with a marauder/hellion push (you have to scout and have roaches or mutas) so the meta-game wouldn't really be helpful to me.

    wasnt able to get a hold of majinsweet this weekend :-( I predict the patch will come out this monday, oh well :-P good for Zerg players, bad for protoss and particularly Terran players

    Gabb New Member

    Alhazard, Majin and I are playing our match today, afterwards its one of us against you and then the winner of that go up against the dreaded Zerg master Logo ( now even more deadlier with the 1.1 patch! ) Hope to have this thing done by this weekend. I also hope to observe/spectate the finals match when it happens live :-P
  43. Logo

    Logo Well-Known Member

    What?
    My whole play style is more or less ruined by 1.1. I'm significantly less deadly, not more (well ZvT at least).
  44. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    I think an approx 8% reduction in the Ultralisks damage to armored targets was worth the nerfs to the Reaper + Bunker + Zealot build times, not to mention big tank damage nerfs against non-armored targets. Oh and theres stuff like rocks added to make defending the naturals easier for Zerg on maps like Desert Oasis.
  45. Logo

    Logo Well-Known Member

    Infestors can't burrow cast NP & FG anymore. That's actually more of what I was getting at, though the ultra nerf does also hurt a bit. With an infestor opening the ability to burrow cast is pretty essential in fending off a dedicated Thor push.
  46. Gabb

    Gabb New Member

    yeah I saw a few people do it but never really saw it ever done in any my games since then, isn't it considered a bug since you normally can't do it? To be able to burrow after casting those spells you have to use the shift bug right?
  47. Logo

    Logo Well-Known Member

    Right, it was the bug. I used it reasonably as it's really the only way to make NP an effective spell. Now I feel like opening infestors would be unsafe vs a Thor push.

    Did anyone else get this bug. i cant play on Xelnaga or LT and this affected tournament draws
    EDIT: Apparently this was only a Mac issue and I fixed it now

    Anyways here are the games

    Gabb

    We mutually agreed to play a best of 3 for the Loser's finals

    wow those were some exciting semi finals games, especially for me since I was watching it live :-P

    anyways finally onto the finals tournament, who would have guessed it? Alhazard ( aka. icehazard ) versus MrConic! For a T v T match ( and they say T isn't OP :-P )

    for the first set, the maps will be:
    1st game: Delta Quadrant
    2nd game: Lost Temple
    and if 3rd game is required: Blistering Sands

    note: if MrConic is successful in winning the first set ( best 2 out of 3 games ) he will be crowned champion, if he loses the first set they will play a second set to determine the champion ( for those that don't know this is because MrConic is coming from the winners bracket and therefore has 1 opportunity to lose since its a double elim tournament )

    for the 2nd set, the maps will be:
    1st game: Metalopolis
    2nd game: XelNaga Caverns
    and if 3rd game is required: Blistering Sands

    thanks for all who participated
