    Hey! Sorry for the very late reply. I have been travelling for work the last three months, and am currently in the long, but final stretch of my PhD. Therefore there has been little news on the tournament front. If there is a surge of interest, though, I can probably make something happen a Sunday. If not, there won’t be anything before I submit the PhD.

    Grand Final gametypes (at the bottom) are for sure played. Before that any leftover maps if there is a continuation (if teams have met before in the bracket). If they have not met before, then there is 2xBo5 – if so, I will draw an extra set of maps.

    Good that you sorted this out 🙂 Post the final score, and I will update the bracket + post the next round.

    Also: I just learned that me and Wakka will have to withdraw from the tournament due to family obligations. We will therefore forfeit the next round.

    FFA groups are now ready! FFAs begin at 13:00 CET, when all players are ready. Players that are not in the game by 13:15 CET will be regarded as having forfeited. The top 4 players from each group advance to the FFA final. Host has been, and will be, selected at random for each round.

    Since we are exactly eight teams, I have made sure that all teammates are split into different heats. Which group each player got was decided by (virtual) coinflips. The hosts were then selected using the list randomizer at random.org (the top player in each group has host). The FFA groups are as follows:

    FFA – Group A
    Calif0rnian (host)
    PTNelsonJ
    AimLesZ OG
    JuanMag
    halopolice 002
    Uzny PL
    rG Wakka
    Skv 666 Baghera

    FFA – Group B
    King I3ob (host)
    o eNemY X o
    Jelen Wysyn
    iB L Oby
    Wh1plash96
    eSo Blade
    halopolice 003

    Make sure you also read the tournament day information page, where you will find all the information you need about the tournament.

    We use option 1 in that case. The philosophy behind that choice being that at this point both teams have lost a series, and there is this no need to give one of the teams an advantage.

    Some have done differently. MLG did at times do continuation series even in the LB. But this was slightly controversial, and makes the job of TOs quite difficult, since setting up rounds is made much more complicated.

    Also, LiNGeN, some point of H2 tournaments:
    – I think there might be a community interest in this.
    – The EuroHalo concept is about “classic Halo games”, which in my view refers to H1 and H2.
    – What we need is for interested people and teams to show their interest here, on the forums. Make a thread, get people interested, and voice your wishes.
    – There is also a need for good, preferably experienced (but I am willing to coach if needed) tournament organizers for H2. Interested persons are free to send me a PM,
    – If the interest is big enough, EuroHalo will deliver 🙂

    LiNGeN: Score reporting only works for the person that registered the team. In the future I think we will just use the forum, since the score reporting requires reports from both teams to be visible even to us admins.

    As for the continuation series, it is described (albeit in brief terms) on the rules page. Continuation series only happen in the Grand Final (GF). This is because the team coming from the WB has not lost a series, and thus should have an advantage. There are traditionally two ways of giving the WB team an advantage: two series GF or a GF with continuation series. We chose the latter, since that helps even out the advantage somewhat if the previous series was very close (3-2). (If the teams meeting in the GF have not played eachother earlier in the bracket, there would have been two separate 7 game sets, where the WB team only needs to win one to win the tournament.)

    Anyone that followed MLG tournament finals back in the day should be familiar with how a continuation series works in practice. Moreover, the map list and starting score for the GF was posted here in the forum thread. We could probably have written out the rationale for the continuation series like I did above, but our judgment was that the rules page was long enough, and that examples and further explanations should technically not form part of a rules page.

    PS: We hope to avoid FFA confusion in future tournaments 🙂

    Thanks for your feedback, and please do reply back if there is anything else I can help explain or if you have more issues to bring up!
