WSOW Season 1 Summery: 12/4/2014 10:48:09

Level 61
The season is in the final stretch and the winner will be decided soon here is a recap of the season

Competition link:

This season featured 9 double elimination tournaments with a variety of templates
in which every player played 6 tournaments max out of the 9
each player received points for his final position in each tournament
the player with the highest total score will be the winner

in season 1 we had 48 original players and 18 substitutes competing

Point System:
1st place:1000 P
2nd place: 750 P
3rd place: 500 P
4th place: 400 P
5-6th place: 250 P
7-8th place 200 P
9-12th place 125 P
13-16th place 100 P
17th-24th place 50 P
25-32th place 25 P

The season was long much longer than I expected, around a year and a half but still was very interesting
the reason for taking so long was to make this a light load competition
where you don't have to play in a rush or too many games at once
big big thanks to all the players that kept playing including a lot of very good players taking part
but in the end it was Ekstone who came out on top after the 9 tournaments
followed by Frankdeslimste and Arlecchino respectfully
the top 8 were invited to a special tournament

Additional Tournament "The Masters"
Tournament #10 "The Masters" was only open to the top 8 players :
2 RR of 4 players template was decided by players ranked 1 and 2
RR A:players ranked 1 3 6 8
RR B:players ranked 2 4 5 7
from each RR 2 qualify to a small 4 players single elimination Strategic ME tournament
point system
100 P for every RR win
200 P for semi final win
500 P for final win

Top 8 players after 9 tournaments
1. Ekstone +
2. Frankdeslimste +
3. Arlecchino
4. Ineffable
5.Hypnotic (dreuj finished 5th but became inactive)
7. Kantos +
8. ChrisCMU +

+players who advanced to the final tournament

I like seeing WG as 3 of top 8 (5 in top 15). It shows our versatility I think.

Well, so far I have 400 points in the Final Rounds with 500 additional if I can knock off Frank in the final game of WSOW (stoked I made it all the way to the last game of this thing). So that puts me in a tie for 4th place overall. If I win and get 500 more, it does not bump me to 3rd though.

But, the game decides the overall winner. Frank needs to win it to be champion. If I win, Elkstone is the overall champion.
