I'd really like to see me vs Leffen and Ice. I played white Peach in both matches, Ice used green Fox and Leffen blue.

Fuzzyness is one my favorite players to watch now

Just fun and confident

Ice and Overtrifoce face off?! OMG *swooons*

my two favorite europeans going at it!

Leffen should use yoshi more and SD less then he would be sooo fearsome

Armada perfect as always, very inspiring :D

Yay :D

I was hoping you'd do that this tournament already, I always love watching you. But watching the vids something seemed off. You didn't have that flow you usually do.

You didn't have to change the bracket in the first place. And it wasn't pool ****, it was because you were too afraid by Armada. They told you "no" a hundred times before cracking up because you were so godamn annoying. A lot of persons had to face the same persons they had in pools. But no one cried like you did. You can't have a perfect bracket just because you want to.
Deal with it now. You failed, even with tears.

I finally updated the first post with quite a few games, including grand finals.
I'll do the rest tomorrow, as there are many matches to add (less than a week after the tournament, 68 sets have been uploaded !).

I didn't have to change the bracket? LMFAO are you serious

whats the point of having pools if 90% of all 1st and 2nd seeded people (who were SEEDED TO WIN too!) face each other 2nd round?
When people said "no" I asked why. I got ZERO answers, and I asked 20+ times. I understand if you don't understand english but SHEEEEEEESH

and lmfao at me being scared of armada. I tried to fix the whole bracket but they would only let me finish my because it was "too late" when it wasn't even close to "too late".

Having a good bracket is as easy as asking me/armada/some other good TO for advice or to just check that everything is okay before you start playing the bracket. This should be STANDARD for any local tournament, let alone a huge international one for gods sake.

**** whats the point


@Battlecow: Either you are very dumb and you somehow don't see that calling them scrubs was 100% a joke, or you're just salty enough that you just keep on badmouthing me out of spite

either way you're hilarious

Yeah the brackets was tbh really bad. I didn't cared so much because my controller stopped working and I wasn't feeling so good about that.

I gave Charlon some advice about seedning so he can use that in other tournaments. I also think we should have a crew with around 3-4 people (different countries and the TO included) that are doing the bracket.

This way I think we can make it close to perfect (cause perfect is not possible)

Yes, I think that's the point. It's this or they all face each other on the 1st round :/

Not sure if serious. If you are I can tell you that it is possible to create brackets that is better then creating any of those problems.

In a really good bracket, the only way to play someone you had in pools really early is if either 1 or 2 players loseing their seed. In this case a lot of players in the same pool were really close to each other (in the combination of beeing seeded to win those sets).

Yeah it was like that. Android vs Over was one example and Baxon Fuzzy was another (maybe something more).

But even with seeds that is 4th and 3rd it can be done much better. In generall I REALLY liked ESA and Im looking forward to the next one. But I do think Charlon learned from this misstake. But like I said I think we should have a few players that helps the TO at tournaments with this kind of stuff.

I warned about this issue in the bracket, at least about Fuzzy and Baxon, then about Android and Over, and I was told it didn't matter that much, because Fuzzyness wanted to meet Baxon in bracket again, and that facing the same player again wasn't that bad.

The whole organisation was a mess.
I also spoke with Leffen about the bracket and eh explained it to me. However, it more likely looked like whole french community was sittin in front of the PC tryin to adjust the bracket (i dont want to misjudge that, since no french player besides Cyr, who earned his place, made it very far, but it just looked strange)

I also wondered why Teams were played after Singles, havent experienced that once before. Sadly we had to pay 10€ BEFORE knowing it was played on sunday, still hope we can manage to get that money back.

There were some other small fails (forget me in pools, , had to be re assigned,50% of the hosts/co host just smokin weed all time and dont care about anything else, poor english skills, no station management and way more TV's than setups, armada and me playin in the first round (since we were the best players and i was so demotivated i just ff'ed afterwards..oh and ye, the weather wasnt that good either, please do smth about that next time, thanks)

voir charlon tourner en rond sans savoir quoi faire ça devrai être epic lol. j'espere que l'orga etait pas aussi cata que sa quoi. Faire les pools en avances sa aurai été pas mal.

Btw VA you look a way stronger than the previous ESA. Leffen vs over is just an awesome set and fuzz your falcon is just ....brb , i don't understand the way you are playing man but it seems effective. And congratz to ice and armada like usual.

Thanks :) I feel like a much more confident player. I think I choked a little at this tournament but expect to be pulling some hefty punches at the next one. Watch out Europe :)
