    Things seem to have stagnated in the bottom bracket. Unless I'm misinterpreting the deadlines, JMH1/Killer52 should be playing Kavvz/ColumbusStorm for the bottom bracket final now since none of the other matches have been played and it's now Jan 18?

    It certainly looks like this tourney has stalled.  An update would be appreciated Topper.  

    There's a bottom bracket round 6 game yet to be completed...

    Hang on to your butts Yiannis/Keith...gonna be March.  :)

    Good Day, Folk's

    In Round #8, we have 2 Matches to be played by 1/25/2019

    Match #1: winner of Match above VS gibb1971/deepstuff13

    Match #2: WalKofLife/Spazzstick VS TheGuyDownstairs/Jediknight Both of these Matches to be played on Congressional (B9)

    In Round #9, we also have 2 Matches to be played and be completed by 1/30/2019

    Match #1: Kavvz/ColumbusStorm await the Winner of Match #1 from Round #8

    Match #2: JMH1/Killer52 await the Winner of Match #2 from Round #8, Both of these Matches to be played on Merion (F9)

    There will be 1 Match in the Semi-Final Round, It will be the winners in each Match above in Round #9 facing off for the chance to go to the Consolation Championship to be against bluey403/tseeqhim for the opportunity to make it to the Grand Finale against the Upper Bracket Champion's: KeithJ/Yiannis

    In the Semi-Final Match it will be played on Chambers Bay Full 18

    Wolf Creek will be hosting both Championship Matches played on Full 18 setting!

    Best of luck to those remaining Teams left, sorry for the delay, but real life has had some twists and turns, so let's move on!

    Thanks,

    ...

    In Round #9, we also have 2 Matches to be played and be completed by 1/30/2019

    Hey Topper, may I ask why round 9 only gets 5 days to complete while others have had 4/5 weeks

    26/27 is unlikely to work out for 4 players seeing as its the weekend and round 8 will have just been completed. 

    Which leaves round 9'ers Mon, Tues, Wed only.   

    While I'm confident those remaining will get their matches scheduled pretty quickly, I'm not sure it'll happen that quickly.

    Well Brad, it’s mainly because I’m an idiot, it was midnight when I was writing this, so I’m sure a few days won’t hurt of course!

    LOL. This is what's making this work, however slowly it is. Your willingness to be flexible on scheduling. The tournament has lost its head of steam but is still chugging along and will get finished. Remember, this is a learning experience so stick out the growing pains and it'll get right.

    Something to maybe think about next year would be to section off the time zones and have competitions within those time zones to get to the finals. The final matches shouldn't be too hard to coordinate because if you made it that far you're going to make it work.

    Sectioning the time zones would also let you set a stricter schedule for match completion and you could arrange it so the loser's bracket is only a week behind the winner's bracket. That way the winners only wait a week to see who they're playing.  :-)

    Nawww @ midnight understandable it's all good.

    Sure do appreciate the commitment to this tourney Topper; we've learned a lot and will no doubt have it running smoother next time.
