2020 Fall Invitational Group Stage

2

Welcome to the Group Stage for the 2020 Fall Invitational. This stage will be made up with 4 groups of 4 players each. Games will be played round robin style with each player in a group playing each other player in a BO3. The top 2 players in each group will advance to the finals.

Date: September 19th
Start Time: 14:00 GMT
Chat: /join #fall
Challonge: https://challonge.com/z16htxwt
Tournament Director: Swkoll

Maps:
There is a pool of 10 maps and maps will be selected using a veto and pick system. This means each player has 2 vetos, with the lower seed in the group vetoing first in an alternating pattern.(ie lower seed, upper seed, lower seed, upper seed). Next the higher seed will select the first map, the lower seed the second map, and if necessary the higher seed will select the third map. 5 of the maps are the same for each group and 5 maps are different for each group.

To clarify map picking:

  1. Figure out which maps are in your group, they are the 5 "All" maps and the 5 maps specific to your group.
  2. Lower seed (as shown by the position in the group) vetos first map
  3. Higher seed vetos next map
  4. Lower seed uses last veto
  5. Higher seed uses last veto
  6. Higher seed then picks the first map to play from the list of maps in the pool that have not been vetoed
  7. Lower seed picks the second map following the same rules
  8. In the event of a tie, higher seed picks the tie breaker map following the same rules
  9. The winner reports the results (including losses and tie games) to Swkoll in the #fall channel

GROUP D
Archsimkat, TurinTurambar (Sonozaki), TURBO2, WoundedElkNoob

(Decided to start writing why each game has the rating that it has)

Series D1 - TURBO2 vs Turin Turambar
12680888 on Niflheim - Final II v2 r9
12681125 on Setons Clutch - FAF version r9.5
Only the second game of the day for these players, already a huge test of resilience. What an epic match. Back and forth. Action stalls once or twice but comes back on steroids.

Series D2 - archsimkat vs WoundedElkNoob
12681007 on The Ganges Chasma r8.5
Love when both teams go agressive.

12681119 on The Ganges Chasma r9
Again very nice action-packed game.

12681243 on Cobalt Valley r8.5
Another close, action-packed match.

Series D3 - archsimkat vs Turin Turambar
12681673 on Niflheim - Final II v2 r7
Big build-up frustrated by an early ending.

12681802 on Crossfire Canal - FAF version r9
Havent seen much games on this map yet, but I kinda like this one. It just seems to be missing the end.

12682352 on The Crucible r9
"Grand Pillar Extravaganza!!!" Big brawl fought in 4 fronts (plus some water). Both sides on UEF, both sides with a LOT of T2 Heavy Tank. Another close and action-packed match, fought with the tournament on the line, with a suitable ending.

Series D4 - TURBO2 vs WoundedElkNoob
12681718 on Setons Clutch - FAF version r8.5
Nice start and mid battles until the game slows, then early GG. Not the most even match here.

12682066 on The Ganges Chasma r9
Short action-packed game from start to finish. Great display by the winning player.

Series D5 - Turin Turambar vs WoundedElkNoob
12682789 on Setons Clutch - FAF version r9
One displaying a big fighter who never gives up attitude, while the other one doing the opposite. Nice game until the early gg.

12683011 on Niflheim - Final II v2 r9
One focusing more on land, another splitting up land and air, who will win?

Series D6 - archsimkat vs TURBO2
12682797 on Adaptive Maridia r8.5
Slow game due to map size, a little one-sided and early ending, but it wasn't a GG Ctrl+k. Amazing display by the winning player.

12683021 on Cobalt Valley r8.5
Short, action-packed, close back and forth game.

12683145 on Crossfire Canal - FAF version r7.5
Not the most even game here, but entertaining. Ends in a short, silly way.

Replay review is up, this time I started adding a little description besides the game rating near the end of the reviews. Will keep doing that with the main-event of this amazing tournament.

Also attached all the links to Jagged Appliance's point-of-view that he posted on YT. No game has been actually casted so far, any takes?
