Hi Rigor,
As funny as those subsequent spoilers were the first time, please do not overdo it. :)
Thanks

Just to remind people of a point that I think may have been overlooked(because, as I have been reminded before, no-one actually reads the rules! :roll: ):
1.Format
...
-In addition entrants will be split into 2 or 3 grades(again depending on numbers) depending on their skill level. There will be 1 final for each grade, between the top two players from that grade in each group. If the group winners do not come from the first grade then this may mean more than 3 finals. The grades will be based on ladder rank, but will be ultimately determined by me. The tournament is also open to non-ladder players and I will place you as best I can. The aim here is to keep the tournament interesting for as many players for as long as possible.
The two grades are as follows:
Grade 1: The Black Sword, plk2, Oook,Undertaker, Rene, Mint, Dreadnough, Rigor, Kira1, Castoridae
Grade 2: abhijit, amikrop, Bast, khorne-flakes, maze, NanRage, Danniel_BR, Duthlet, noob-killer, Gnork, GaretJax
Some people(*cough*... abhijit... *cough*) might be trying to sign out a bit prematurely. :wink:

First though, we need to get the groups finished. I have to say this has been a great tournament to run with regard to people getting their games played. I see Dreadnough, the player I'd be most worried about, has sent out a PM to try arrange the rest of his games, so hopefully I won't have to hurry anyone along. I would like all the group games finished by Sunday 7th April at the latest to give people something to aim for. Hopefully most games will be completed before then and we can start with the playoffs before that.

Things I still need: noob-killer vs Duthlet replay, or at very least the result :P .

SNOW WHITE GWYCLA and the seven dwarves...

Dwarven mothers tell this story often to scare their young ones from running into deep mines alone... little Jimmy knows..

GWYCLA, a human, yet a dwarven paragon was the most beautiful of her kind. She was such a fierce warrior, no human dared to come near her. If any stray lizard passed by, this is what happened:

Image

Not able to find a suitable mate in the entire human population, she got comfort in the company of dwarves. For she was a savage, simple-minded, seductive assassin...
Image

But she was greedy, greedy for gold and the evil great drake RIGOR, found this out.

Image

But killing Gwycla didn't satisfy his bloodlust, he ....
Spoiler:
And as if that wasn't enough, he ...
Spoiler:
The dwarves decided enough is enough, and so they got drunk... and they got drunk again... and they got drunk again...

Until...
Spoiler:
The thirst for revenge was so extreme, so powerful that it drove them to...
Spoiler:
No body, in their right mind will....
Spoiler:
And so it ended! What went on those scarred foothills, still remains a mystery only to be found in the dwarven chronicles or Rigor's post in the previous page.

All I can say is that:
1. Before Rigor utilized the brilliant LIZARD tactic, which was really awesome, I accidentally had watched this, unknown to his knowledge ofcourse:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBVvlf_MC6s *CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP * haha! :P

2. The dwarves still live in caves, for they don't have the courage to find out what happened in the battle. NOT anymore, now that Gwycla is gone, there is no reason to be courageous anymore...

3. And when little JIMMY decides to sneak out and have some fun... a voice thunders...
Spoiler:
and little JIMMY runs... ^_^



On a different note, it appears I did confuse the 'grades' with 'groups', thanks TBS for pointing that out :D

@The_Black_Sword: Unfortunately I have neither the replay nor the result of the noob-killer vs Duthlet game. I guess it would help if the game took place first ;)

excessive emotions taking me now and then.

[Eleven emoticons expunged]

for those of u in want of the visualized epic story of Gwycla, or Alcyw G. as she is called in real life, you will have to wait in suspension for a while until easter allows for more detailed insights into the lives of our fav. wes-champions.
