https://www.mediafire.com/?r55m7r5t5bjndwn  I wish i saved the 109f fights, those were awesome also. The last 109F fight was a thing of beauty with both of us trading the advantage. Thanks to everyone who showed up Friday night, that was a lot of fun. I agree with Sonic, we should do that after every FSO. The random plane selection forces us to find a new way to win, and learn new techniques. Joach1m forced me to use every ACM I know in these fights, from a torque stall in the final G14 fight, to the old badboy flat turn in the G6 fight. I was lucky to get such good practice. It was a very technical battle the whole way coming down to inches. By far some of the best fights I've ever had. It's easy to see why he won the last 3.  :rock :salute

A drunk driver will run a stop sign. A stoned driver will stop until it turns green.

indeed every bit of fighting style was used there. flat Scissors, rolling scissors, Immelmanns, chandel's, hammer heads, lots of throttle moving flaps out and all that good stuff. Trading advantages back and forth...

Was good fights and will be seeing you all next tourny.  :aok  :salute

Thanks BE for the fun tournament.

Another tournament comes to a close.

A little bit of drama and several decisions that had to be made "on the fly" so to speak but overall a relaively smooth event.  It seems these things occur in every tournament to one degree or another.  I felt bad for DejaVu not filming but that precident had been set several tournaments ago (I'm sure Ace will be along soon to concur).

The competition couldn't have been closer throughout the tournament but particularily once we hit the final rounds.  Not only one but two competitors climbed out of the lower brackets with double series wins against an, at that time, undefeated opponent.

Congratulations to all the quarterfinalists; Bluberry, Dejavu, JB11, JOACH1M, Latrobe, NathBDP, Sonic23 and SunsFan.  You can all count yourselves amongst the best duelers in the game along with prior quarterfinalists and thank you for putting on such a good show from that point forward.

Alas, most of the competitors were like me, out relatively early, but that will always be the case as the field halves in each round.  I felt encouraged that I made it through a few rounds this time, a personal best for me.  I hope others who suffered early losses won't be discouraged and will be back to try to move further along next time.

A big  :salute to all the participants.  Without you this event wouldn't exist.

Here's the final bracket update for this tournament and a final congrats to SunsFan for taking the 11th championship and JOACH1M for taking the 11th runner-up position.




Until next time.
I edit a lot of my posts.  Get used to it.

No films from Jo then?

Better a bloody good fight and a loss than no fight at all.

Yeah BE I'll concur :). You do a fine job for this community. You deserve more praise than what you get.   If I could make a suggestion I'm sure its been made. But with the community being a small one let us give the results via "honor system"  if someone disputes show films..

Congrats SunsFan!!!  BTW was that the new medical grade stuff?

Great job Joach1m.

Also as a side note, I feel that I can also lay claim to second place since I lost to the winner.  :D
