It appears I will not be able to get my duel in with Tupac/Manplesr.

Not for a lack of effort on my part though....

Good fun AAJagerX!  Was going through films and figured I'd post this one.  Has to be the closest I've ever been (external view) without a collision message!!

No doubt man, I couldn't believe we didn't hit.  I laughed my arse off when I watched it for the first time.  I knew we were close, but that was just ridiculous!

That was close your wing went between his wing and tail.



but...

I saw some HOing in there on the merges :salute

Not quite a ho, but was close.  Any shot I get against JB11, I'm taking it.

The rules do state that anything goes after the first merge. But that don't make it right.....just my 2 cents  :salute

Fight JB11.  Then you shall understand.

On my vid it clearly wasn't a ho...  Just one of those fabled low angle merge deflection shots.   :devil

- All merges will be guns cold (no firing until you have passed your opponent's 3/9 line).
- All merges will be co-alt at 10K until within icon range at which point a merge break can begin.  In addition all players shall observe a 10K ceiling at all times prior to the merge.

The merge dive is a dueling standard used by many if not most duelers.  Now you know.

This week went much smoother than the week prior.  No drama, no hours searching to see who posted what because duels weren't fought, PM's were at a manageable level... whew!  I wish every week of the tournament went that smoothly.

I think the review committee issues are worked out.  I appreciate the offers of assistance and if the situation warrants it I'll keep those offers in mind.

There was some talk this week about segmenting off European and possibly even Asian/Australian players into their own areas of the bracket to accomodate time zone differentials in future tournaments but after a short poll in another thread I'm scrapping that idea and we'll continue with the current format.

There was an issue brought to my attention in the SEraider/Bruv119 duels that I need to address.  In at least one of the duels Bruv was at 9K pre-merge (pre icon range).  I reviewed the films when the review committee didn't respond and advanced Bruv.  At the time I wasn't thinking of being below pre-merge cielings as an advantage although it could be.  In retrospect I made a mistake in letting Bruv through and that/those duels should have been re-fought but I won't force that issue at this point.  Just be aware, in the future you must be at the 10K pre-merge alt (within reason) until icon range.

In this weeks only unfought duel Strip advances with no posts from MANPLESR.

So that's it for news. 

This is the final week of Elimination Rounds and will be a big week as the winners will advance to the Quarterfinal round (you can tell it's big because it's a different color in the bracket  ;) ).  Only one player has made the QF's in each of the last two tournaments (batfinkv).  He has a chance to add a third to that this week while three others (JB11, Sunsfan, TonyJoey) each have a chance to make their second QF.  No matter if they make it or are denied the entire lower half of the bracket will be first time Quarterfinalists.

It's time to seperate the contenders from the pretenders.  Here's the updated bracket:
