@betterbuckleup: I'm on shift both days. I can do Sunday after 7 if that works for you.
The Inaugural Giant Bomb Hearthstone Scrub League Tournament
OK y'all, this isn't related to the tournament at hand, but I just need to share this pack I just opened:
For what it's worth, I already have 2 Injured Blademasters so that wasn't quite as exciting, and I have regular Flame Imps obviously, but still, goddamn. It was a pack I got from a 5-win Arena run which I guess skews the card quality a bit, but I've never had a pack of that quality before.
Here's the status of each matchup. Again, no hard feelings - I just need to keep this moving.
Devise22/Lilarcor - Scheduling is ongoing.
sir_gunblade/StarvingGamer - SGB has no activity on the site since Jun 10. Will follow up with both parties via PM. Will award win to StarvingGamer if nothing is in the works by the end of Sunday.
Lockes84 / Chim21 - Haven't heard from either. Will follow up with both parties via PM.
BisonHero/littleemille - Bison added LE on Friday. Will follow up with both parties via PM. Will award win to Bison if nothing is in the works by the end of Sunday.
AcuraMax/ tabloidfootprints - Tabloid reached out to Acura 5 days ago, unfortunately Acura hasn't been seen in 6. Giving the win to Tabloidfootprints.
ILikePopCans/ ghostdini85 - No activity from either in a while. ghostdini85 expressed interest in the losers bracket. Will advance ghostdini85 however will PM. Need to hear back by the end of Sunday ensure he's still interested.
nophillip/fredchuckdave - NP sent FCD a friend request on Friday. Will follow up with both parties via PM.
a_randay92/Jswan13 - I'm going to give a_randay the win. He's been active on the site. Will follow up with him via PM to see if he's still interested. If not or I don't hear back by Sunday, will advance Tyashki.
TheFeenMachine/paudle were just scheduled so you've got some time. BetterBuckleUp/HurricaneIvan are way out infront of the pack so also have plenty of time to schedule your game.
If I missed anything or overlooked anything, please let me know. Again, nothing personal and if I made a mistake and overlooked your scheduling efforts, it wasn't intentional and can correct it.
@electric_zen: I've got some strong storms brewing in my neck of the woods which almost always results in me having frequent power outages, so tonight may be a no go. We've got a ton of time to get our stuff knocked out, but am wide open starting Tuesday.
Oh, OK, the Challonge bracket page says this round ends tomorrow, so I didn't know we had so much time.
In a few minutes, I'm going to go through and start moderating wins. To everyone who have responded to PMs and/or gotten your games in, thank you. To people who were already bounced but active - thank you so much for making this easy... you deserve better. The bracket will be updated within the hour. I'll PM anyone any new matchups that happen as a result.
Giant post. Please forgive. Here is an update from my post on Friday night.
Devise22/Lilarcor - Lilarcor won
sir_gunblade/StarvingGamer - sir_gunblade won.
Lockes84 / Chim21 - Both are scheduling, both have just been busy.
BisonHero/littleemille - Never heard from littleemille. Giving BisonHero the win.
AcuraMax/ tabloidfootprints - Tabloid was given the win, ultimately bounced by busted1der.
ILikePopCans/ ghostdini85 - ghostdini85 was advanced. Never heard back.
nophillip/fredchuckdave - fredchuckdavewon
a_randay92/Jswan13 - a_randay92 was given the win.
Thank you everyone for your assistance in getting that round knocked out. Now, here are some decisions I'm unfortunately having to moderate for sake of keeping things moving.
ghostdini85/gkhan - I never heard back from ghostdini85. I'm advancing gkhan.
a_randay92/Tyashki - I didn't hear back from a_randay92, so I've advanced Tyashki. Unfortunately he's playing the loser of Lockes/Chim. Sorry, but I appreciate your patience duder!
As for where that leaves us - here's the update on where we stand with our final 24 in terms of scheduling.
jackhole/lilarcor - PM sent Saturday.
MrMazz/sir_gunblade - PM sent Sunday.
Lockes84/Chim21 - Scheduling (winner vs TheDew)
C0V3RT/Electric_Zen - Scheduling
DarkShaper/BisonHero - Matchup just made, will send PM shortly.
StarvingGamer/busted1der - PM sent Sunday. SG sent a friend request.
Asmo917/Devise22 - PM sent Sunday. Asmo sent a friend request.
Blargonaut/gkhan - Matchup just made, will send PM shortly.
kidzombie/fredchuckdave - PM sent Saturday night.
TheFeenMachine/veovisjohn - PM sent Sunday.
As for the timetable moving forward. I want to allow the winners bracket matchups as much time that would be considered reasonable to get their games in. Since it was originally supposed to be single elimination anyway, look at it as a perk of sorts. Losers bracket - I will post an update on Tuesday with any updates with a hard deadline of Thursday to have the games scheduled. If anyone is MIA come Thursday and the opponent has made an effort to reach out, they'll be eliminated.
(15 posts away Fredchuckdave, your reign of terror at the top is coming to an end!)
