No point complaining about placements. The only way to win the lower divisions is by having a mad skill jump during the event, or just plain being put in a lower div and flying under the radar until later in the tourney...

It's just a game after all guys <3

i'm just wondering if i would be moved to the d6 bracket if i reached d6 within the timeframe of this tourney, because i'm actually on the cusp of doing so

If we move you to D6 it's because of where you were, rather than where you end up. (Even though this format is actually really friendly for this sort of thing.)

You're one of the few people I placed quickly by reading your levelranks, I never used the site's system to place you.

I'll be going to peek at that now, but frankly, it's not exactly fair to move you because of a mid tourney skill boost, because based on your ranks I know you aren't sandbagging. Of that I'm confident.

As a side note, just skimmed it, and if you were in an official tourney you'd be placed D5 right now. Now, the system's not the most reliable IMHO (lol tier points matter in this calc if I recall right) which is why I prefer to skim your levelranks to place.

Edit: if you don't know what I'm referring to: http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...e=suicidaln00b

By the way, Ben and I have rediscussed placements, and we've pretty much settled for how they are now on the spreadsheet.

He would definitely be someone who would be considered on the fence. However, considering that he is currently skillboosting (most of his top 15 were achieved this month), he would probably be placed in D6 if an OT were to start tomorrow. That being said, this tournament started before a bunch of these scores were achieved, so D5 was probably appropriate at the start. Typically, people only get bumped up in OTs if we think they were purposefully trying to "cheat the system" by holding back until the start, and seeing such a large improvement in such a short time would definitely at least raise a flag for his case.

I'm not suggesting anything btw, since it is ultimately up to the tournament hosts and I don't really care one way or the other- just posting my observations from the standpoint of someone who has done OT placements.

EDIT: and tier points have no bearing on pretty much anything, except for your "tier" lol. The only thing that affects your skill rating is your top 15 scores.

You can say whatever you want about his skill boosting. The fact of the matter is that even at round 1 he was tied with 1st place D6.

Um...where did "Deamerai" come from? I could have sworn I didn't see him on the spreadsheet yesterday, and now he's suddenly in D4 with scores that would be challenging for first in D5?

Due to the lack of submissions for this round, I'm gonna extend this round by a few days. I didn't send out PM's at the beginning of the round so there might be some people that are unaware that round 3 has started (and is about to finish).

I'm gonna send out PM's to people who have yet to submit. Round 3 will be extended until Tuesday, 1/9/2018, 10pm server time. Will update the OP and address some of the other concerns in this thread momentarily.
