I'm a certified uscf tournament director (chess). I'm sending out an invitation to the current top 25 rank. Here's the setup. 8 players, round robin, cumulative score. I'm in so looking for 7 other high ranked players to join in, first 7 to join are in. I'm calling it the Mullins Invitational ;) no rewards as I'm not one of the goblins and can't give gold. For honor only!!!
I would be delighted to play in such a tournement, but given my success rate in PVP against highly ranked players, I am willing to ceed my spot to someone who might be more competitive. So count me in, but If spots fill, I can be replaced. I do love both the idea and the format.
First I'd like to thank the all the competitors for joining. Rules are simple. This is a nine round round robin. All 3 games with opponent must be played, it is not a best of 3. This is a cumulative score. Being that it is a round robin if your next opponent is available you can progress to next round. One player will receive a bye every round. The most important rule is to have fun and play honest and respectful.
List of players by rank:
#2 Mark Turner
#6 Roberto Navarette
#10 Bourke Street
#18 cw88---Nathan Shadeck
Round 1 Pairings:
Mark Turner vs. Quintavarium
Orange vs. cw88
Roberto Navarette vs. Fastbridge
Bulldog86 vs. Bourke St.
Valentino with bye
Valentino you will be waiting on Quintavarium to finish with mark. That is your second round opponent. Good luck to everyone.
Update on round 1, Valentino you will be playing confused. He was a late joiner. And also Valentino you are the only player not on glassboard. It would be beneficial to all if you was. Makes setting up your match that much easier.
And please make videos of your matches!
Once you have a video or few I'll add you to a DropBox folder so you can share them - and any that are published on the Three Goblins Youtube account will also gain the creator 500 gold!
Please leave the Effects animations ON, and record video with SOUND too! It's kind of boring watching them otherwise :-)
Note that I do reserve the right to reject any video submitted for any reason whatsoever and no explanation, but I would expect most to be posted :-)
I believe it is safe to say that all players can play any of their opponents at any time. For the purpose of speeding the tournament up. Now that the update is out I hope to start hearing some results. The weekend is coming up and hope that glassboard will be buzzing ;) good luck
