View Full Version : TWEL Playoffs Scheduled

05-02-2009, 04:13 PM
Trench Wars Extreme League Playoffs will be starting in 2 weeks. That means your cutoff date for dueling is at 11:59PM EST on Friday May 8, 2009

Get your duels in now cause I will be closing down all duels at that time. (Duels in progress will be allowed to carry out till they are finished, seeing as they don't take an extremely long time.)

Also, make sure you're only using one name to duel with. If I find you dueling yourself, using someone to feed you, have 2 names active without telling me. I will remove both names and pick someone else in your place. IE: A player in the top 64 uses two names to get in. Both his names are removed from the playoffs and the players in spot 65 and 66 at the cutoff will be moved up.

will it be double elimination?

05-05-2009, 12:05 PM

05-08-2009, 02:46 AM
I assume it's going to be 1vs64 2vs63 3vs62 etc... not 1vs2 3vs4 4vs5?

05-08-2009, 04:54 AM
Yea, I have a program that will set it up for that style.

05-08-2009, 11:33 PM
I have the rankings saved and will be going through them to look for any multiple names that I have to remove and any previously banned users that need to be taken off.

Give me about 2 days to finish it completely.

Playoffs should be starting next weekend. I will post more on that later.

beeb.....? it's friday already..

Well the set date was going to be a week from the cutoff. But I don't think many people read the forum link that I put up in the arena.

Do your quick checks. The playoffs will begin on Sunday May 17, 11:59PM EST.

The duels will be manual now. So make sure you're going by the rules that you and your partner will agree on. I suggest to 10, winby 2, Warp at least. If nothing else, PLEASE use the warpback so I don't have to hear about spawning.

Also, Once you've dueled your bracketed player, if at all possible do not proceed to play any more duels. It will make it that much easier for me and the other ops to record the games. I have to do it this way due to the bot having problems last time the playoff module was run. Till the bot is redone, this is how it will have to be run. That is also why it took so long to post the brackets as they were all manually added and hand checked.

Each round will last 1 Week. After the week is up I will go through and make the new brackets for the next round.

Can we have more guidance on these rules?

I want more outlines and clearer rules on this entire process if possible. Thanks.

My opponent hasn't been seen in 10 days. what do i do? : X

05-18-2009, 10:05 AM
message him, i messaged mine, i want kills

05-19-2009, 10:05 AM
and what happens if you dont play the duel? who goes through?

05-19-2009, 03:57 PM
my opponent wont show up, I think he knows I would tear him a new one and had no chance considering I lost only twice ever in twel this season and both times I was drunk

05-19-2009, 07:51 PM
If he doesn't log in and duel by the end of the week he will be disqualified and you will move on to the next round by default.

05-19-2009, 08:52 PM

I was gonna move on to the next round by default anyway. Good thing he didn't bother making me waste my time. Skip newbie A on to newbie B

05-20-2009, 05:00 PM
yo Turban is a newb and I always beat him can you just get me through to next round, thx

05-21-2009, 05:21 PM
Ha. How about you log on and lets duel -- I want to lose to you again. :wub:

05-22-2009, 08:36 AM
my opponent is never online either, hes been online maybe once or twice entire week...

05-22-2009, 09:55 PM
my dude still hasn't shown up, I guess I won by default now

I wonder what happens if this situation happened where the afk guy shows up on like the last day and the other person who was on all week isn't online at the time? who gets the forfeit then?

05-23-2009, 01:48 AM
Turban> ?find singer
Not online, last seen 2 days ago

and 4 days ago

Turban> ?find singer
Not online, last seen 28 hours ago

Inactive opponents for the win? :fear:

05-23-2009, 10:03 AM
lionheart hasnt been on at all, can i get the auto-win and move on now?

05-23-2009, 02:15 PM
I bet there is a lot of people who don't know this is even going on so they haven't attempted to play their duels. Should have ?messaged everyone to inform them...

05-23-2009, 02:28 PM
I've messaged about 50 people. Most of them don't care or went afk.

05-25-2009, 10:07 AM
I'm missing my rnd2 oppoments in two leagues. Make a decision either one of those guys who havent played move on. I want to play already.

05-26-2009, 12:38 PM
My two opponents, Roboteddy (D) and Cripple (S), are never on and never seem very interested in dueling me. I'm obviously committed to both those leagues and want to mover onto the next round. I'm seeded 5th in both those leagues so that shows that i really am committed. Please just move me on.

I've also left messages for both of them and neither has responded.

05-26-2009, 12:50 PM
Move Him On So I Can Get An Oppoment.

05-26-2009, 01:08 PM
I've gotten with cripple, he still wants to play. But Roboteddy hasn't message me back. If he doesn't by tonight you'll move on in that league.

05-26-2009, 01:42 PM
Ok cool thanks PO. I will try and duel Cripple tonight if he is on.

05-28-2009, 03:03 PM
UUUUUHHHHHMMMMM, my opponent hasn't been seen in 4 days again...

03-08-2010, 11:03 AM
this turned out great

i suggest next time doing the top 12 in each bracket
