The GameFAQs Tournament III (No sprint, 2v2 edition), has finally come to a close! This tournament was a different format from the other tournaments I've ran before, so it was a learning experience for me. Overall, the tournament ran fairly smooth, but the flaws of the laid back format became more and more apparent as the tournament came closer to a closing date. Some players couldn't make their times, some players got screwed over by circumstance, but most players seemed to have a good time. So the tournament felt more successful than not (especially for being played on a "dead" Halo title!), but I see plenty of room for improvement.
Here are the official standings of the GFT3 tournament:
1st place ($20/ player): GFT3 CHAMPIONS!!!: (Ayy Scooby + Sanzaru) 2nd place ($10/ player): (bale elab bale+ yPPoLs) 3rd place ($5/ player): (B5Dog + Swizzy Dangles) 4th place: (Mario Eats + Yoshi Eats) 5th place: (itz DeADiCaTiON + unreal nv)/ (Vivala Ty 25 + gamecore97) 7th place tie: (Mr Fish 68 + Jesse I3aker)/ (Knole Train + Choobaca) 9th place tie: (vBlite + Darkened Night)/ (Dopp1eg4nger + MasterKos25)/ (Rhino 9O8 + XxKittySenaxX)/ (II Rippon II + IX Sn1perXL) 13th place tie: (Endless Mythic + DC FiskarNN)/ (AJM Ruler + Lawl Sulli)/ (Wolfi Kurisu + CavalGoloso)
Congratulations to Scooby and Sanzaru for making a massive comeback from the loser's bracket! I am in the process of editing together some captured footage, that I will post a later time. The prizes will be given out either tomorrow or the following day. It'll mainly depend on how fast bing rewards gives me some of these amazon points.
So thanks to the players that participated in this tournament, I was pretty surprised with the number of players we managed to get for this. I will host another tournament, but not for a LONG time ::cough cough:: Halo 5 ::cough cough::.
I'm sending out prizes now. Bdog, your $5 canadian amazon card has been PM'd to you, and Scooby, your $40 amazon (US) card has been PM'd to you. Bale, Sloppy, and Swizzy, your gift cards will be from Bing rewards, so it'll be a little longer (you'll have them by tomorrow). I'll post in here again when the remaining prizes have been sent out.
