We had a busy week of activity with 32 matches played in the past week with the return to action of some of the big players in the league such as UltimaCloud, Hursh, Ramma, DrPepper, and Skrface. Check out the match results below.
With 740 matches complete this season, 53% of the total matches scheduled this season are complete. That is a great accomplishment in of itself, but we still trail the season completion of 79%. Personally, I only have 5 more members to meet up with in the remaining 5 weeks. Thru 19 weeks, each figher should have 30 matches complete (60 matches per member total). i will try to do some final 'house cleaning' this coming week to determine if that are any other members who are no longer interested in playing.
Despite a lot of movement in the standings, CUBANILE_WL still holds the top spot in both division. He has a 3-win lead in each division. Interestingly, both divisions require a fighter to have at least 15 wins to reach the top Gold rankings. Division B has a total of 5 members with their main fighter in the top 8 spots, while Division A only has 4 members with their main fighters. One of those main fighters is my own Ken. I am the only member in Division A with 15 wins, so I currently hold the #8 spot. I plead with everyone to keep playing their matches if only to knock me out of that spot! I would much rather be in the Silver rankings (#9-16) by the end of the season as the Gold tournaments in SUPER BRAWL IV are going to be where the best fighters are, and honestly, I know that I don't belong there! Whatever happens, I give it my best shot until the very end! Yyyyeeeeaaaaaaoooowwwwww!!!!
FALL BRAWL III is coming up two weeks from this Sunday on October 28, 2012 @ 3 PM Central (4 PM Eastern / 1 PM Pacific). As a preview to SUPER BRAWL IV, this final live event of the season will be played with the Tournament Mode online. All participating members will assemble in one lobby and play the random tournament matches (3 rounds max). The first figther to win 3 tournaments wins the event. There has been several requests by former event winners this season to be allowed to play in this final event. Rules this season prohibited previous winners from playing in future events to allow everyone a chance to win an event. Considering the winners of the past events are some of the more active members in the league, I think it would be a good idea to open up this final event to all members as a preview to SUPER BRAWL IV. Now, I understand that with the return of DrPepper, Skrface, Ramma, Hursh, and Killa, the chances for members like myself to win the event dramatically decrease. Nonetheless, since it is the last event of the season, the event is a lot more interesting when the best of the best square off especially in the shadow of SUPER BRAWL IV. Therefore, all members will be invited to play in FALL BRAWL III. The winner of the evnet will be awarded an additional 'win' for both of his fighters in the standings (even if they have already won an event this season). So get ready for the pre-rumble to SUPER BRAWL IV!
Until next week...good luck!
