Title: King of the Huntards - Quarter Finals! eTronic vs SiDEWAYSBOX
Post by: NF on October 16, 2014, 10:07:46 am
KING OF THE HUNTARDS QUARTER FINALS

We're now down to our final four: eTronic, SiDEWAYSBOX, Lust, and LuckyLock! Last round, eTronic took a clutch win over dst on Swamp Fever, where the game was exactly tied after all four maps, and a tiebreaker map had to be played! I hope to see more close games like that in the matches ahead. On the other side of the bracket, SiDEWAYSBOX took a ffw over Titan Disco. The winner of this quarter finals match will go on to play Lust in the Semifinals (or losers bracket finals) on Dead Air. Meanwhile, the undefeated LuckyLock is still holding strong waiting for his next challenger in Grand Finals.

The map for this round will be Blood Harvest. I expect the foliage and high damage pounce spots to shake things up a bit and make this an interesting match on this classic L4D1 map.

=========
Don't forget to post your match times AT LEAST TWO HOURS before you play your match! This is a requirement. Not following this rule will give you a -25 point deficit in the next round.

so luckylock should have a 1 win lead over the winner of the losers bracket, right?  Whoever wins losers bracket needs to beat luckylock twice, otherwise the system is flawed.  Double Elim system for l4d2 has been flawed many times before in this very exact way but I never thought of it until I saw csgos double elim system in which the upper bracket winner has a best of 3 advantage over the loser bracket winner.  Otherwise winning every match up until grand finals means nothing.

Isn't that what the last match is for in the bracket?

its called the winners bracket advantage and it's up to the discretion of the tournament host, some hosts think it's enough of an advantage that you have to play fewer games going through the winners bracket others add an actual advantage in terms of points or like what you're saying

I wasn't aware a double elimination bracket could be run any other way! But yeah, whoever wins losers finals will need to beat LuckyLock in two campaigns in a row to become champion.

Yeah, I'll be posting a results thread. I'll also use the results for this tournament to help seed future tournament brackets.

We got to finale but due to network difficulties on swib's end we postponed finale till tonight, but I haven't been able to get up with swib. Swib, if you're there, and it's okay with NF, I'm fine with trying again Tuesday night. I don't care either way.

Guess swib had time to shitpost on l4dnation but not play his match.

Today is the last day you have to play. If it's not played etronic will get the win since he was in the lead before it was postponed.

The tournament is already a day and a half overdue,  I'm not waiting any longer. Etronic will receive the win.

It's not really a technicality this time,  as sideways was losing going into finale.
