Antty and I played our battle last night, he won, but has not uploaded replay yet. As for my other final battle, I have made multiple attempts to contact ImNotGoingDown and Antty before via pm but neither would respond, although according to the server they have both seen at least a couple of my messages.

So my duty is done and all games played. Sorry for not showing my best performance - still it was fun to play and i think pyramid is quite a great new way of playing Wesnoth. Horus2 thanks for organizing and keeping things running. I will be off in two days for quite a while. So i wish all opponents some more great matches and a lot of fun.

By the way, AlaskanAvenger and I have agreed that in case ImNotGoingDown doesnt show up soon we would like to do a deciding match for second place in Group Cavalier.
If anyone disagrees, please speak.

In order to explain why this choice is useful:

The only chance for Antty to still advance is to win against ImNotGoingDown while ImNotGoingDown wins against AlaskanAvenger and myself. This would result in a 5 way draw and I'm sure this is no useful thing to have at all, not considering that this is unlikely to happen.
The only other way for ImNotGoingDown to advance is to win all 3 remaining games which is also unlikely to happen, not considering that he isn't active right now.
Any other constellation would result in AlaskanAvenger or me advancing, so one deciding match seems to be the best choice here.

I'd like opinions on that, please :)

If there was another active player around who could step in and get his games done in the next couple days it would be sweet, but other then that a game between blop and I would be a quick and easy way to decide the tie.

The unforeseenable happened yesterday, sorry everyone for the delay. Now i am back to more predictable things, like trying to pick up the thread.

First, sit back and enjoy this lengthy replay played by Diasporoz and 2RaggedClaws, in case if lengthy battles are your cup of tea.

There are still no sure second places in any groups! Let us have a closer look what is happening in them:

Assassin
thefish won, and the Danniel_BR vs Enti will decide the second position

Banebow
Mint already won, but other than that this is the most open group despite the least match left to be played (one only), because whoever wins will cause a tie of 3, as those players beat each other. Therefore we will need 3 extra matches to finalise between szdik570, abhijit and the winner of this match. abhijit and szdik570 may already start it.
There are some additional rule applied to these:
1) To avoid a tie again, the player winning his game in the least turns proceeds.
2) To ensure having equal chance to set up this fastest match, all these matches shall be played on the same map, even thought this contradicts the "every map only once" rule. This single map will be the insidious and in the group currently unplayed Silverhead Crossing.
3) If two finished in the same rounds, match against each other is the decisive. If you make that a tie too, then only a modest diceroll can help your hopeless case, and i would really dislike that, so good luck evading it!

Cavalier
The_Black_Sword is in here.

I am not going to discourage you to play it, but you will need it only if ImNotGoingDown return and present us a juicy tie of 5.
If not, since AlaskanAvenger defeated both you and Nordmann, he claims the silver ticket for second act.

Direwolf
Dauntless is in, noob-killer and Lich_Lord have to clash when their tricky timezones allow.

Round 2 has been officially started!

Round has never been so serious.

Congratulations to everyone advancing to this point! You already proved that you are truly a master of the era. But life goes on, and the sky is the limit when we try to decide who are the two of you even better at it. In this round, arcane chaos will be set free. Expect the unthinkable and prevent it by doing the impossible.

Round starts today in this very moment and ends with October 28 GMT+1.

Welcome To Apocalypse!

Image
When one Armageddon at a time is not enough.


So, Round 2 has been started, but there was not any kind of retorsion for those who has unfinished business; you lay there, in the relative safety of your castles, dreaming about something peaceful and cuddlesome, do you? Meanwhile other players wait endlessly for their business partner to engage, getting anxious about your health state as an interpretation of avoiding the coolest Wesnoth 1v1 non-default tournament ever existed. The contradiction is very bad and shall be resolved. Therefore, i decided to make reasons for the wannabe opponents to worry about your health. To be faithful to the spirit of the era, i made contract with four picked fighters, best of their trade, having no equal in equestrian skills, nor in their thirst for destruction.

To make the elimination of the inactive players more melodramatic, the following rule is applied:
Every day i throw up a coin to decide whether or not to post a picture from my finest selection of horsemen in this thread, and with every posted portrait round gets closer to end. Therefore the time to finish is indefinite and ranges between four and a maximum allowed of nine days. When four of the horsemen have been gathered, it is over, and inactives will be disqualified and points of theirs will be nullified, like if they lost all their matches. You have to have a good excuse to be exempt from the rule, most acceptable of those are:
"My opponent have not replied!"
"My opponent is unwilling to play!"
"Our game has no effect on advancing to next round!"
"I have to play my additional matches in Banebow group!"

Now, if you really have debts game-wise, then get back to it and play before it is too late!

Can you outrun your fate?

I'd like to drop in a big thank you to Horus2, Mint and all players from Direwolf group for this great tournament. My plan minimum was at least one win and I won two games so I'm very glad about the outcome (besides, I wouldn't have time for matches in round 2). Cheers to you, guys :)
Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?
