Title: Round 3 Matchups & Results
Post by: drsteelhammer on October 17, 2016, 04:43:31 am
This is a Bracket (http://challonge.com/fds_Championship16)

Hey,

after an exciting round 2 where we lost eleven high seeds and even one of our top 5 seeds, it's time for the next round! Please finish your match until October, 23rd.

Also we got to witness eight tiebreaker games, even more than in the first round. And neither any forfeits nor no-shows, hopefully we can keep that trend going.

Extra congratulations to Lalight, who managed it as seed 61 into the top 32, probably pulling off the biggest upset in the tournament (so far!).

Anyway, here are our 32 contenders:

77Stefvs.Polk5440
78markusinvs.DG
79gamesouvs.2.71828.....
80Derg17vs.Simon (DK)
81Lalightvs.Aleimon Thimble
82Titandrakevs.schadd
83jsh357vs.Burning Skull
84faustvs.gloures
85Mic Qsenochvs.A Drowned Kernel
86Mikey the great (Miked)vs.vsiewnar
87smcrtorchsvs.michaeljb

Didn't really stand much of a chance. I think this guy was just seeded way too low tbh. :P

Thank you for the games, man! I think we both made some terrible mistakes actually. And all these Cultist boards...

3 of the 6 boards had Cultist on it. We both won one of them due to a 5/2 opening. The third one was the only more interesting one, where I blindly dived into the Cultists and you went with a more moderate approach including a Count/Duke combo and a three-pile I noticed way too late. So the only one where it mattered how good you played it, you were clearly the better player.

The only game where you didn't play so well imo was the first one, where you went for a Feodum strategy on a board with very few enablers, and I could easily catch up with a Pathfinding+Pawn engine.

Still, I like your playing style. It's refreshing and it shows that there are more important things in the world than mindlessly brute-force your way into an engine on a lot of boards, which is what I tend to do. Good luck in the rounds to come!
