Hey guys,

as you might have seen, we had some problems, but we tried to make the best out of it.

My two games started delayed but were finished as planned.
Intangible's first game had connection problems. This never happened before with this player, so we could not prepare for it. The second game could not start due to one player not showing up. This can always happen. We had no reserve player who could take the place for him. So second game was won by disqualification.

The grid is updated. I hope we will evade these problems tomorrow so everyone can watch three great games :)
Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Keejchen still wanted to play the match out and waited for Sharkbait. Unfortunately I wasn't around at the time but they did play the match out and Keejchen was the victor. So, while a little unconventional, at least the win wasn't by DQ.

Thanks for the good sportsmanship Keejchen!

So, is anyone from Brussels going to represent? That would really make it like Bloodsport.

too bad i didn't see the invite for this tournament earlier..in fact i was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium...not so far from where our friend Jean-Claude came from ! ;)..except i live Antwerp now, and he in Hollywood !

I found it very surprising to see a reference here to my homeland coming from you Laddinfance..so i had to react to that ! Do you have any relationship with Belgium, Laddinfance ?

i hope i will be back to see the live coverage this afternoon..but first a bbq with my in-laws !

i will try to sign up on a next tourney !!!

Cool :)

I am pretty interested in Druid vs. Warlock match. Also, what type of wizards? Earth vs. Earth? :)

Wow! Very intense games on the semifinals.

German ones will be uploaded on my Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8SKmwEEoM9v2M51GnH3urg

In the Final Round, we will see the confrontation between an Air Wizard (Keejchen) and a Druid (Bignic).

The tournament is done and we have a winner.

Keejchen with his Air Wizard could take victory over Bignics Druid in a highly competitive match.

Big thanks to Intangible for his help, to the players for their participation and for to all the fans watching and giving us feedback.


The next tournament is definitely coming. Keep your eye open.

Were these games recorded? Any way we can watch them online if we weren't available over the week-end?

Thanks

Games with german commentary
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8SKmwEEoM9v2M51GnH3urg

Games with english commentary will be posted in the next days. I think Intangible wants to edit them somehow.

Now that's interesting!

 Also, kinda surprised promos were allowed, but it's been a while since I was on Octgn (technical difficulties) so I guess that's standard now?
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

With OCTGN everyone has access to Promos, therefore the playing field is level.

Promos add more diversity and complexity to the game, so it gets more challenging. That's the reason behind allowing promos.
