Isn't Desklamp technically still in the tournament? I know he probably isn't around, but there will be a game between him and headphone. He will only get an autoloss if he doesn't show up then.

No, he's a special case because he specifically PM'd me telling me he was dropping out of the competition. Otherwise, yes he'd still be in the tournament.

That means that (by my interpretation), assuming that prizes are being awarded to the top six finishers [I get this assumption from this phrase in the rules: "
The prize for the tournament winner will be disclosed at a later time (we're thinking something along the lines of a customized feature on the site for the winner, plus cash prizes and other minor goodies for the top 1-6)."]...anyway, assuming the top six get prizes, Hellraider and Headphone have already won prizes due to well-placed drop-outs, as they are guaranteed top six finishes at worst, even though there's still about a dozen of us left.

Of course, this also assumes that everyone who didn't show up for the last round won't show/is out.

Sweet, I always knew I was in the top six in this game.

We're not anywhere near figuring out who the top 6 are, no idea what you guys are talking about.

The way I came by my interpretation was I mentally eliminated all the players who didn't show up for the last round and observed the bracket from there. Perhaps I made an incorrect assumption.

The players who did not join their games are obviously eliminated. There is really no other choice. You can't punish the other absent ones for their opponents showing up and give free rematches to the rest. It would also be unfair to the players eliminated during the earlier rounds. Furthermore, it is nigh impossible to get them to join their games in the first place even if you try again.

As far as I'm concerned, there is little choice apart from removing everyone who did not join from the tournament completely (including the ones from the winner bracket matches who are currently listed as having lost their game 0-1). Everything else is inconsistent and to an extent unfair.

I happen to be gone for an extended period of time and missed my front draw game and I now returned, although I technically may still be in the consolation bracket, if players think it would be a nuisance/unfair for me to still be in I understand and if people want me to still be in I would be happy to play some games against a high level of competition.
The below statement is true.v

So if anyone doesn't join one of their games, they are out? Sounds reasonable to me.

Hell, I'll wait for you to confirm this rule, and then I can go update the bracket accordingly.

Thanks for the update! :)

Looks like I was premature in stating that headphone was guaranteed a top six finish. Sorry about that.

I still stand by my interpretation that Hellraider is guaranteed top six, though.
