Congratulations to Tidal Waves!

Post#1 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 8:13 am

Congratulations to Tidal Waves for their victory in the Hero Showdown finals over "Coming Soon" this past Saturday. TDW won the grand finals match three maps to none. They managed to win the entire tournament in dominant fashion, through the winners bracket without ever losing a map. @

played very well throughout the day. They won a prize of two $20 PlayStation Store gift card codes, one each.

The first map of the finals was Naboo. "Coming Soon" took the first round on this map but TDW was able to come back for three rounds in a row, winning 3-1. The second map was Jabba's Palace. TDW were able to win on Villains 3-0. TDW closed out the tournament on Heroes on Bespin, with a score of 3-1.

Naboo - TDW win 3-1
Jabba's Palace - TDW win 3-0
Administrator's Palace - TDW win 3-1

Great effort by both teams to make it to the finals, and again congratulations to Tidal Waves, the Hero Showdown champions!

Lastly, thank you to all the members of all 10 teams that signed up for this tournament. I hope you all enjoyed competing. Most of the team leaders were on top of telling me map scores and we were able to finish the whole tournament in one day. This tournament went much better than I expected for a queue snipe test tournament. I even think we could have been a bit faster if we did some small things differently.

We couldn't stream / commentate any matches because this game doens't have a spectator mode, but some players recorded their own perspectives. The finals can be seen at this link:

I'm not sure about the next one. This one was more of a test to see how well queue sniping would work. It turned out surprisingly well.

No you wouldn't need 16 hours. It took about 5 hours to run the full 10 team double elim bracket. I think we could've finished in 4 hours but one side of the losers bracket was a little behind so it held us up. That, along with a couple other changes, and I think it could even be faster for a tourney with a similar amount of teams. If we got over 16 teams it might take a lot longer though.

Also, most of the tournaments we've hosted over the years are usually not one day things, so it depends. This one happened to work nicely as a one day event.
