Re: Triplechain

That's happened before in a couple of Eight or Better tournaments. It definitely produces weird results for the subsequent rounds.

Not sure if Zac can do anything about it, but it's worth reaching out to him to see.

Amazing that the Maxi Max finally started at all. How long has it been waiting in the queue? Half the players are MIA.

Re: Triplechain

I have talked to Zac about this before. As nails noted, it is a glitch.. Probably happens in 1 in 200 tourneys.

Zac said it would be almost impossible to find out what is causing it because it is an intermittent problem. I think he said it might be a "race condition." I know nothing about coding so had to look that up...lol

I will let him know but my guess is that he can't do anything about and it will just play out as it plays out.

Re: Triplechain

World Cup of TripleChain Update!
(also posted to the TC Tourney News page)

We are down to the last two days of round-robin play, and 12 of our 20 competitors are still in the running for one of the 8 playoff berths. Consul, arjun13, and Derwi have already locked up playoff spots, but the remaining 5 slots are wide open.

Important games on Day 18 of round-robin play include:

wafflesobv vs. Bandwagon -- Bandwagon needs to win his last two games to have any chance at making the playoffs, while wafflesobv currently sits on the playoff bubble

dogfloss vs. Donk4 -- both players are just outside of a playoff spot; the winner will have the best chance to stay alive in the playoff hunt

The full standings through Day 17:

Re: Triplechain

I’m actually in right now? Feel like I’ve been having a terrible month. Run good for sure. Was definitely fun to follow at the beginning. Thanks for running nails!

What happens if there’s a tie for 8th? Seems very possible

There are tiebreakers in place -- (1) head-to-head results, (2) total points in the round robin.

Not to give too much away regarding today's DC, but tiebreakers will not be necessary to decide a playoff spot...

Re: Triplechain

I'm kinda annoyed that I screwed up the tourney.

I played almost every day (I think I missed 2?), but some days I forgot to click the daily tourney button and only played the 1 game and left thinking I was done.

Either way, gg to everyone that got a free win on me.

Re: Triplechain

World Cup of TripleChain Update!
(also posted to the TC Tourney News page)

The round robin is over, and the top 8 are headed into the playoffs! The final day of round-robin play changed nothing -- Nimbusfan captured the last playoff spot, and the playoff seeds also remained the same.

Here are the playoff match-ups:

#1 consul vs. #8 Nimbusfan
#2 velourfog vs. #7 wafflesobv
#3 arjun13 vs. #6 Hg80
#4 SubArcticK vs. #5 Derwi

Each playoff series will be best of three games, with the same scoring used in round-robin play. If any match-ups are tied after three games, a fourth game will be played to break the tie.

Daily playoff updates will be posted in the Tourney News section on the TC site.

Good luck to our playoff participants!

Re: Triplechain

2021 Summer Match-Play Championship

It is time for the 2021 Summer Match-Play Championship. Past winners include Paul101 in 2018, SubArcticK in 2019, and arjun13 in 2020. A yellow trophy is up for grabs for the 2021 winner.

Format

-It is a head-to-head (H2H) match play tournament with the winner of each match advancing to the next round. The loser is out.

-Each H2H match will be 50 games played over a period of 20 days (maximum).

-Seeding will be based on the Triplechain tournament ratings on June 8th. Seeding will be done in exactly the same way that the TC site is programmed to seed the first and subsequent rounds of any multi-player tourney. (NOTE - There could be some 1st round byes.)

-If fewer than 8 players register the tourney will not run.

Please DO NOT register if you can't commit to play 50 games in 20 days. (Obviously, if you win your 1st round you will be playing another 50 games in the next 20 days against a different player, and so on).

Because I will be manually creating the 50 game H2H matches, you can't register for the tournament in the normal fashion. Instead you MUST post in chatroll on the Triplechain site or in the Triplechain thread on the 2+2 site (here!!) that you are registering for the tournament. Registration will close at 11:00PM ET on Tuesday June 8th. NO LATE ENTRIES.

On June 9th or 10th you can expect to see the first round start. I will create the H2H tournaments and then announce them on chatroll so that people can join their match and begin.

Monthly Race
  • arjun13 broke the all-time record for consecutive months in the top 10 of a monthly DC race, and he did so by winning his third monthly DC of 2021. 17 of his 19 top-10 scores in May were in the top 5, including 5 wins and 4 second-place scores. It was arjun's 21st monthly win, which is the second-most all-time, and he extended his monthly top-10 streak to 32 straight months, beating the record of 31 set by Paul101.
  • SubArcticK and Nimbusfan were second and third in May. SubArc led the field with 21 top-10 scores, while Nimbusfan tied for the most wins during the month with 6.
  • consul and velourfog rounded out the top 5. consul had his highest monthly DC finish since September 2018, while 13 of velourfog's 16 top-10 scores were in the top 5.
  • Among the remainder of the top 10, sixth-place anton-09 tied with Nimbusfan for the most wins during the month, Dynasty finished seventh despite just 2 DC wins, and Derwi came in ninth thanks to 5 DC wins, tied with arjun for third-most. Bandwagon, SmalltownBoy, Guessinator, and nails finished just outside the top 10.

Milestones
  • With his monthly win in May, arjun13 passed 1000 total yearly race points, the third player to do so (after Dynasty and Paul101).
  • Nimbus ended the month by posting the 27th hat trick (three consecutive wins) in DC history from May 29-31.

Stats of the Month
  • 19: The May 25 DC featured a 19-way tie for first, tying the record for the most winners in a single DC, originally set on January 13, 2016.
  • 70: Thanks in part to the 19-way tie, there were 70 total DC wins in May, which is tied for the fourth-most monthly total in DC history. This comes on the heels of 76 total wins in April, which is the most ever in a single month.
