From the last three pages, Im guessing that qwertjx won his series and cprloe won his series. Would you guys like to confirm that? I saw tecwrtr and currymutton's posts but just to double check.

Pjft, thanks for the headsup as always. Could we say, if you guys could try finishin your series by Wednesday? If not, we can give Emos the win but we can still match you up for your next round opponent so you can still keep playing Thanks for the consistent updates!

Certainly, that would work. We're on our second match, I _believe_ I won the first one, a few days ago, though Emos should confirm that just in case I'm mistaken

It's being a very enjoyable set of matches so far. Emos: let me know if you'd like to play another one in tandem, for the 3rd match - tie-breaker - in case there's a need. How does that work?

Cheers guys!

3,477 replies, but the game was to niche to be considered a GOTY contender last year. Just sayin.

Confirmation: I lost 1-2 against qwertjx.

Uncertainty: I am not sure if I am done with my tourney rounds. Thank you.

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Hey Currymutton and qwertjx, if one of you guys coukd go to challonge.com/ascension0213 and pop in the result, that be great!

Currymutton, we all play 4 qualifier rounds in the Swiss format! With your 1-1 record, you will still make the playoffs if you finish 3-1. So you are definitely not finished yet. Thats for everybody, everybody plays 4 qualifier rounds, and anybody who finishes 4-0 or 3-1 makes the playoffs.

CoreyB, I still have you as the first on the list as a possible sub. We have 13 now excluding me. I think qwertjx and Emos are charging hard towards making the team at Qt3. If they both make the team, we'd have 11 here and you can join as the 12th!
