#3

Full bracket for MI is here:

Can’t promise I’ll keep it 100% updated on the day of if I end up going far.


#4

Here is OR, assuming everyone confirms (thanks for the spreadsheet Adam!)


#5

I like Challonge for this kinda stuff.

You guys are going double rather than single? Best of 7 in the winners best of 3 in the losers?

Here is Ontario.

IFPA specifies that all ties have to be played out this year.


#7

Ah, just read that, whats the reasoning behind that @pinwizj


#8

In the past we made it ‘IFPA Rep choice’ for whether matches got played out or not.

This then of course led to that not being communicated properly, and we ran into MULTIPLE states where we had player complaints where players left after they were eliminated, only to find out that they were playing everything out, but the player says that the IFPA Rep never made everyone aware of it, blah blah, drama, fun stuff.

I figured might as well force the issue and make it part of the program, and now players are welcome to just leave at their leisure if they don’t want to play any of the consolation brackets, but know that there’s no ambiguity as to why they will be put in 16th place if they do that.


#9

Ahhhh, more CYA basically :grinning:
Ok I’ll leave it up to the participants on if they want to bother playing it out or not for Ontario.


#10

Now you’re speakin my language :wink:


#11

@heyrocker when you update the bracket you posted here, does it automatically update on this page too? Because I’ll just link to this page if that’s the case.


#12

It’s not really “double elimination” as there’s no way for a loser in the main bracket to improve their standing. Once you lose in the main bracket, you’re relegated to 3/4, 5-9, 11-16.

I do like the fact that you’re guaranteed to play against 4 different people, even if it is just a BO1. It’s a rare occasion that all the best players go out to the same tournament.

edit: Just noticed the rules state all matches must be BO3, edited original document accordingly.


#13

Yes it will update here.


#14

There’s a whole lot more consolation than this.

#20

Just took from last years and put in new people in brackets, trying to not remind me of the marathon that will be on Saturday the 13 th. Last year we did not have any ties because we did a 8 person bracket with one game top 2 play other to 2 for 9-12 and bottom 2 played for 13-16 . Then people had time to play in charity tournament but looks like this year we are going to have to play match play all the way to 16 th place .
