Hi Firecyde,

 

Clans participated in four Absolute Clan Cup tournaments, earning points for how well they did each week. The top 8 clans (well, 9 clans due to a tie for 8th place) were seeded into a single-elimination playoff bracket. These rules were all explained on the tournament pages as the Clan Cup was running.

Thanks for the reply Dance, can I ask how they were seeded leading into this? I find it unproductive promoting the game with arguably 3 of the top 4 clans in the same bracket for the finals.

8 vs 1, 7 vs 2, 6 vs 3, 4 vs 5. How most tournaments of this kind are run. It is meant to keep the best teams at from facing each other until the end, but some teams didn't play the last week to the best of their ability, so it messed it up.

It was populated exactly how an 8 seed bracket should be.  If you want to point fingers, point them directly at Bulba and RushB for no showing the last week of quals and giving us the 3 seed.

with no double-elimination it is going to make it a anticlimactic finals

Are you claiming some sort of conspiracy or something?

7 of the top 8 teams were guaranteed to be in the final 8 from week 1. R-7 stopped playing since they get 2 timezones worth of gold on the map since nobody but them can field a team in the middle of the day during the week. That gave 4k the 8th spot.

The first 4 weeks where everyone was getting those technical defeats against clans that couldn't actually field a team if they wanted to determined who would get enough points to take the 8th spot.

Two of the top 8 didn't show up for the last week since they were guaranteed in, that moved the points around and that made the bracket how it was. That and the first week where you got penalized if you were put in the bracket that had 1 less team than the others.

After reading page 12, I'm thankful that this thread has remained open while the other clan cup threads have been locked...

Thanks Taken this what I have come to expect from the forums, 10 year old maturity levels. Yankee no I am not claiming a conspiracy due to you and I both know that G is well above any form of rigging ;) . Thanks f8 for actually answering the question without riding the high horse or acting like a child.

If you want a serious response, a lot of clans could have made the playoffs or secured better seeding with a good week 4. A lot of clans chose quitting, though, since the meta of this game is to act like you didn't care anyways and/or to exert minimum effort. 

 

The two best and most deserving teams are playing in the final tonight, which means the bracket turned out just fine IMO.

It's finally here: the last match of the Absolute Clan Cup!

 

After four grueling weeks of qualifying rounds and defeating tough opponents in the Quarterfinal and Semifinal battles, we have our final two team! Tonight, MAHOU and -G- will face off in one last round, to decide which is the top Clan!

 

Rockstarx1 will bring you all the action starting around 6 pm PT at https://www.twitch.tv/rockstarx1. Only one Clan can be the Champion...which one are you cheering for?

We managed to play 4 games before -G- started getting DDoS'd off the field.

 

My router is still getting hit.

Tournaments really need to just be completely put on hold until those two are dealt with.
