    @blueleopard there's 3 brackets, so there will be 3 winners. if there's only one winner that's getting a gift instead of one for each of the brackets, i'd suggest the gold bracket (not just because that's where i'm at, but maybe ;)) but because it has by far the largest turnout and most even competition, but your call
    Didn't realize that.  Thanks for letting me know.  I'll talk to the team about it.

    Is there going to be a losers bracket so we can see who the ultimate loser is.

    Lol, I’m sure it would be me in the “diamond” bracket

    Is it too late to get in on this? Im a silver player and would be keen to get involved if possible?

    @numb3r5 given that we have one guy with two teams in the silver bracket, I think it should work out. Do you have line? Add me if you do - mastacriff. Otherwise private message me. @cooldowncanadacubs @BigBibbins333 @fahhq2 assuming you are ok with this. @fahhq2 you got to pick one team if this is the case

    Edit: may be too late. I know one match has already started. Not sure about the other

    Update: the tourney has run surprisingly smoothly thus far. Gold bracket is moving along well ahead of mandated pace. Diamond guys seem to be moving their bracket along too. Silver seems like the laggard but they only have 2 rounds to play and I know one of the matches is in progress.

    Hope everyone who has participated so far is having fun! Good luck all!

    @criffy both matches have completed one game and it is slow going. I’d be up for the winner of the silver tourney playing @Numb3rs for the championship. What say the others? As long as there is a prize for all 3 brackets..

    Well, I expected to get trucked. And. I got trucked. Good times though. Thank you @criffy for putting this together. Awesome idea!

    It means way more when he plays himself! Congrats @fahhq2 on winning the silver bracket!

    edit: here are the results:

    I’m platinum, but I confuse silver and platinum all the time. Potato potato. I will play ya 😜... in a seriousness though, any platinum teams that would like to challenge me I would love to play a platinum team. Or a gold team if your up for it. I will send an in game gift to whoever beats me. If your gold I will send two 😜
  • fahhq2fahhq2 646 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    I must have joined 13 silver clubs before I could finally get into a platinum one. My eyes are not what they used to be!!!

    this is my thread, my tourney, my idea - so this is my business. have at it elsewhere, just please don't bring your keyboard arguments to this particular thread. that is all. thank you.

    on the tourney front, the silver winner is @fahhq2. gold tourney continues to move along. most matchups are in the elite 8 phase of the tourney, some still in the sweet 16 round. the diamond bracket has its first finalist @Horse42 with @Mattattack playing @retirepujols in the other semi... if pujols wins, i reckon there may be some custom stickers in his future... one can only hope

    I heard @retirepujols pulled and capped him, skills included, just for this tournament. He really wants those free stickers.

    Congrats to @awesomepossum9 who won a 5 game nail-biter, 1-0 in Game 5. 

    The fifth game dramatically shined a late on skill-gate, because my skills were inactive the entire game.  Without those skill boosts, I had no chance against Gaylord Perry.  Top of the 9th, my worst hitter comes up, but at least he has double active Late Innings skill...nope, skills not active.  Argh.

    Uhh, those look pretty active to me....what am I missing?

    why are the icons illuminated but the boosts not applied?

    Bgs/seasonals/tourneys/prime games are very inconsistent. Sometimes, the boosts icon will light up and work, sometimes they will light up and not work(like the one pictured in @Metsicans' post. Other times, it will not light up at all. It's been that way ever since skills were introduced and unfortunately, it didn't get addressed in '19. Fwiw, no such issues are known for WoH and CvC.
    Mi casa es su casa...except during cvc.
