I am assuming that he is smart enough to put a "victory" for the Tau in the Tau board, but then again he may be taunting us :P

anyways, i agree, GET THE LIST UP...and maybe some Battle Reports, those are nice!

Ill give it some time for a proper bat rep to be posted here but if not Ill just lock this.

We like to hear of Tau victories but that does not justify spamming. Battle Reports are great and give players something interesting to read and an opportunity to see tactics that work and tactics that dont.

I'm not here to rain on your parade. Well, technically I am, but...

a 6 people elimination tournament, assuming that it's 1v1, would mean that you'd win one game to advance to the next round.

Bracket #2 only has 3 people (3 games, 3 winners). To get third place, you'd have to lose both games that you played.

So you basically just posted to tell us that you won a 40k game.

Im here to be his giant moving tarp marquee to save his parade. It probably wasnt single elimination. It was most likely round-robin with placing based on records, with tie-breakers being amount of points won by. Also, if it was elimination, you are still incorrect. Assuming he didnt get the bye in the first round (if he did it just means he was good enough to deserve it) he won his first round game, and the round eliminated 2 of the 6 making it 4. In his next game he lost, thus putting him in the thired place game, between 4th and third. Finally, he won the third place game, giving him a 2-1 record. Heres a visual...

4 5 3 6

Note, the losing 4 and 3 players play for third

I was actually thinking about this:

6 games for first round, single elimination match.

after first round, eliminate the losers. we're left with 3 people, who each then play two games against the other two.

So 1st place wins both games, 2nd place wins one loses one, 3rd place loses both games.

Tournament done in 2 rounds--a lot tidier than your version.

Either way, congratulations thedragon. I have never won a 40k tournament.

I'm just being a devils advocate Carbines, but your way, while tidier, has the possibility of everyone going one and one. Also, its more like 4 rounds (I think) and he won two games. Sorry!
