Thanks to Morax's donation 2021 Fall Invitational now has the largest ever prize pool and the largest ever 1st place prize!
$735 2021 Fall Invitational
Any chance we can create a wooden spoon award for last place? I'll donate $0.01 to that and $5 to the main pool
@wolfsaw I wouldn't be opposed xD
I suppose last place would be whomever wins the least games overall, with ties going to Group D, C, B, then A.
@ftxcommando It's about sending a message.
@swkoll noted, 4*0.01 ( incase of tie ) and $5
Thanks Although, because there's 4 $.01 prizes, I'm only going to pay out the $.01 prizes if the player has a US-based or other no fee paypal.
Nice, looks like as a member of group D I am in solid contention for the Wooden Spoon Award.
Welcome to the playoffs for the 2021 Fall Invitational! The top 8 (+/- 1) FAF players have made it to the final stage of the tournament where they will compete for the lion's share of the $735 prize pool, including a $310 1st place prize!
For the first time, spectators can win a fancy avatar by correctly predicting the bracket on challonge!
Just go to https://challonge.com/wyh9oheb and click "create a prediction" and fill out your predictions for the bracket. Be sure to put your FAF name and 3rd place prediction in the Prediction title! See example:
Notes: You don't need to use a real email for challonge, FAF nor myself are going to store/use it for anything. The "TURBO2" field is a stand in for whomever wins the TURBO2 vs archsimkat tiebreaker.
Saturday 13 UTC - TURBO vs archsimkat, sudden death tiebreaker
Saturday 14 UTC - Round of 8 starts, Semi-Finals to follow
Sunday 14 UTC - Bronze match starts, Finals to follow
Semi final players should wait for casters before beginning. All games are BO5 except finals which are BO7 and the sudden death tiebreaker which is BO1. Players have 3 vetoes each and use the same faction and map pick rules from group stage.

@femboy The goal is to get as many correct as you can, not incorrect.
queuing with a newbie to show him the beauty of tmm and meeting tagada be like:
@zlo The real big brain move is to predict your own loss to hedge your bets.
Congratulations to Tagada for winning the 2021 Fall Invitational in a decisive 4-0 series over second place Espiranto-! And congratulations to Nexus for winning the Bronze match 3-0 over Adjux!
