Bear Wars 2014 Playoffs

Postby ScaredOfCrows » Thu Nov 13, 2014 5:31 pm

The Battle for Coruscant

Galactic civil war reaches it's climax and the Battle for Coruscant begins!

We are now in the playoff stage of the league.

Playoff fixtures

Bracket 1 The Corellian Run conflict
Vargas--------------vs------Skindog
ScaredOfCrows--- vs-------CaptainJay

Bracket 2 The Metellos Trade Route betrayal
Hymirl-------------vs--------Thunderchild
Dead Metal--------vs--------Maelzch

Bracket 3 The war of the Western Sea
Scott33------------vs-------Cai
Loki----------------vs-------Canadian Import

Bracket 4 The Koros Trunk Line ambush
Nekhromosis------vs-------Hung
Jim_Lumsden-----vs-------Bluffreggie

Spoonoff! Factory District fisticuffs
JasonT------------vs--------Nightwing

The winner of the game will play the other winner from that bracket, and the loser will play the loser. This will determine the final standings of the Bear Wars 2014 season.

It would be great if all players in a bracket could sort out a date and time to meet and resolve the conflict in one evening or afternoon. I expect the civil war to be concluded in the next couple of weeks.

Use this thread to talk smack and organise your playoff games! Go! Do!

Of course it's a fix! You don't really think I've won 5 games with 2 HWKs and an X-Wing do you? This league has cost me £50 in bribes so far (pm sent). If only I could have afforded what Bluffreggie was asking.

I'm good with Wednesday. I had no idea you were keen to be knocked out in the first round OJ ;)

Well first off it's not knock out format, secondly I didn't. I wanted a game against someone who thought that a 6pt initiative bid was a good idea ;)

Haha, it may as well be knock out as who cares about 3rd & 4th? (sarcasm :lol: ) & its a great idea that has proved effective so far, I've had inititive in every game I've played

Nah mate, i well deserve to be in the top bracket. Based on the final standings, if al had bothered to play his last game (and won) id still be in 4th place. It'd require al and thunderchild to both play and win all their remaining games to push me put the top bracket.
You could consider them as you would slow players in a tournament, delibrating forcing a draw (or loss) by stalling.

Also im not sure what you mean by "best pilot", if you mean wedge, then well that sucker needs to die and if you're refering to yourself i guess we will have to see if you keep your title at the coming xwing event...

:lol: Me & James are actually very even against each other, Bracknell was the first time he beat me in competitive play! I also wouldn't be so sure you sure going to beat Iain, in my opinion he's the best X-Wing player in the club. I will probably see you in the 3rd place play off ;)

Ian suffers from not playing very quickly, which is why he hasn't smashed apart the tournaments he's been to...

If we're applying some kinda rating system I'd put James as the best, as he can play games in 75 minutes! :P

I'd rate Ian as the best winger at the club. My aggressive play, in contrast to Ian's cautious approach, is better suited to 60/75 minute games. That's all.

Anyhow, no one player dominates. There are plenty of decent players at the club (& a special mention to ginjasy) all capable of beating everyone else on the day, which is why the x-wing scene feels so good.

We so need to get a group of us to the nationals!

we will James, don't worry!!! we will all get free tickets via regionals XD

I just need to learn how to beat XXBB or BBXZ that's the list type I've had the most trouble with, once I crack that nut I will feel a lot more confident in a tournament setting!

I have enough ships for a BBXX or a BBXZ list, if you want me to fly at you?

Don't you need to win store championships before you get free regionals tickets? xD

You can play in the nationals if you've won a regional event or were a runner up. The nationals are held at the UK gaming expo who do a regional the day before and the top 4 (or 6?) also qualify.

Stand corrected, just checked, last year it was a 16 player tournament, with a regional the day before as you said James, we'd better get winning some regionals then!!! hopefully they open it up to more players this year coming!

I cant do next week I'm afraid and the following 2 weeks are a bit sketchy as well, I'd have to play it by ear I'm afraid.
Of course this wouldn't have been a problem if there hadn't been that extension on final games ;)
