Got a whole bunch of 20+ game qualifiers, so I'm gonna leave it at 20. You have 1 full day left to get your games in if you need more. GL!

Boo to changing the rules mid-tournament.

These rules are probably better ;-) but still...
I went from 2nd to DNQ.

I'm going to go play my tiny violin.

Seriously impressive Spacebat.
I was already super impressed with BRAINDEAD in this tournament, and then you just blasted out the wins.

1 DAY CLASSIC tournament is starting tomorrow Oct 17th .
It will start round about 5pm Greenwich Mean Time ‎(UTC)‎. Room remains open till the the next event "Kill the King Tournament" starts on Oct 18th (8pm GMT),so you can directly move on there ...
We play on the classic map with the "traditional Lux" classic settings (old school but still fun ...).

probably minimum 8 games required to score, with 5+ human games counting.

Depending on how many players will be there, I'll eventually reduce either the number of games required (but at least min 6) and/or reduce the number of humans required (min 4) within the first 4 hours during the tournament, so be aware that 4 human games could also count backwards ...

Tournament Scoreboard will follow soon. It would be great if we could start with a FH at 5pm :-) Good Luck everybody!
(no need to sign in, just come and play)

Congrats Hugo !! Nice run - you "smashed the worms" (insider joke) :-)
Yes - it was great fun again this year with many "dead kings" (yeah - it is really tough to survive as king with competetive players). Maybe we can re-do this also outside Luxtober once in a time again ...

Sorry for you, milltycoon, that you did not get the chance this year to be king. The "king" was choosen randomly each game, but I think we are all winners by having great fun during these 3 hours!

Hugo (1/3 - 1x successfully keeping the thrown with 3 tries )
Landlord (0/2)
GFips (0/1)
dustin (0/1)
Milltycoon (0/0)
PjB (0/1)
Q (0/1)
