Eternal Sonata Skype Mirror (Sunday, 8/28/16)

Post by anderson »

As promised, the Skype mirror is happening and is currently scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, August 28.

Time: We'll start at 7 PM EST, and it should take at most 3 hours to complete. If you really want to play this and can't make this date and time, let us know (we're not imagining a very large audience, so any individual player might be like 20% of the field heh).

Cost: Free.

Format: If we have around 8 people or less, then we'll just run a shootout. If there ends up being more, then we can do a ladder system like in Imaginary Landscape with 2 rooms, or even a round robin with doubles/triples though this would require a third moderator.

Billy can only make it later in the evening, so this is being rescheduled to 7 PM EST, still on Sunday. I am assuming that this is fine for everyone else who already signed up, but let me know if that assumption is wrong.

This tournament ran into all the technical issues one can expect from a Skype mirror, and the resulting problems led to only Rounds 2-5 being counted and played in a shootout format. These were the scores following that:

Jason Thompson 200
Jake Sundberg 110
Billy Busse 80
Victor Prieto 80
Tejas Raje 70
Matthew Soree 60
Alex Shaw 40
Adam Perkins 30
Ophir Lifshitz 30
Taylor Harvey 30
Richard Yu 10

Congrats to Jason, and I hope everyone had fun despite the problems!
