The event turned out a small but perfect number of members. 4 Members, including myself, came from the USA while the other 4 members came from a mix of countries, including Guatemala, Finland, Germany, and the Dominican Republic. Before starting the event, I asked the members if they wanted to mix the teams between Americas and European members, and they agreed. So the following teams were assembled based on the order they entered the 2vs2 Tournament chat room:
SALonghorn (Texas) & Wauhti (Finland)
Fran_Gil (Dominican Republic) & Epedemicc (New Jersey)
DJ__C--4 (Guatemala) & DromeKilla (New Mexico)
Risoh (Germany) & Killawaun (Michigan)
Since the event was a single-elimination tournament, teams would only have to play 2 matches, win or lose. All matches were best 2 out of 3 five-round matches, which provided a good amount of action per match. The winners of the 1st round matches would play in the Finals with the winning team getting 1st Place and the losing team getting 2nd Place. The losing teams in the first round then played in a 3rd Place match.
Congratulations to the teams of Epedemicc & Fran_Gil (1st Place), Risoh & Killawaun (2nd Place), and SALonghorn & Wauhti (3rd Place). Each member of each team has earned a Prize Match for Week 21, which begins a week from today (April 25th). Next week is also the first week of play-in matches.
1st Place: the right to challenge any fighter for their ranking. Winning fighter takes higher rank, and losing fighter falls to the lower ranking. This can also be used as a Rematch Clause for champion fighters.
2nd Place: the right to challenge any fighter for their ranking in the next highest division (or same division). Winning fighter takes higher rank, and losing fighter falls to the lower ranking. This can also be used as a Rematch Clause for champion fighters.
3rd Place: the right to challenge any fighter for their ranking in the same division. Winning fighter takes higher rank, and losing fighter falls to the lower ranking. This can also be used as a Rematch Clause for champion fighters.
For the winning members, please begin thinking about how you want to use your respective Prize Matches next week. Specifically, think about which of your 2 fighters you want to use to challenge with in the Prize Match as only one fighter can use the Prize Match. Also, in terms of picking a ranking to challenge, it is best to pick a specific ranking (like Gold #1 Contender) instead of a specific member/fighter since the rankings change every week due to results and drops.
These Prize Matches must be played prior to your regular weekly match next week. The regular weekly match for most fighters next week will be a play-in match for the SUPER BRAWL II tournament, so these Prize Matches may provide an opportunity to challenge for an automatic qualifier ranking. See the tournament details blog for more info.
