Title: [AU PC] Thursday Night Throwdown: Bi-Weekly Online Tournaments!
Post by: Goodpart on May 11, 2015, 10:44:34 PM

Hey all!

Firstly, huge shoutouts to Kay for starting the event. He has asked me to take the reins so that he can focus on running King of the Iron Scrub. In view of this, Throwdown Thursdays have undergone a change of management, and a slight name change!

Nothing will be changing about the format of the event: it will still be a double elimination, 2/3 event, with grand finals running 3/5.

We will be kicking off at 6:30PM AEST every second Thursday, unless otherwise specified. If you're interested in being part of the action, I'll be posting links to sign-up pages regularly. TNT's Challonge hub can be found here (http://thursdaynightthrowdown.challonge.com/).

If you'd rather watch from the sidelines, or you'd like to keep up with the action in-between matches, the entire event is streamed from my twitch.tv channel here (http://twitch.tv/goodpart).

We're up to 16 now. Thanks to all that have entered :) To all the killers from last week, please get back in this week; Niah is currently looking good to improve on his 5th place performances, and we just can't have that happen. Remember to add me on Steam to make things easier.

cran, wata no enter~

edit: Shang Tsung is in - someone come take him down if you can!

Thanks to everyone who spectated/participated! There were some issues for sure, but it's a learning experience. Til next time, hopefully bigger and better. For now I'm gonna recover from this flu, grow some extra arms to deal with the 4 screens I had in front of me, and blast my throat with cough drops. Your top 8 for the tourney:

1. Shang Tsung (SAK)
2. Somniac (DEC)
3. Naruga (ELE)
4. beef (SAK)
5. Achilles (ROS)
5. bksama (COD)
7. Niah (CLA)
7. fknbun (IBU)

Felt like it ran long but we we only ran 20 mins longer than last time, even with 27 entrants. Crazy. If you'd like to see full results + brackets, you can click this http://thursdaynightthrowdown.challonge.com/tnt_14_5

Hey, congratulations to Shang for another victory this week! Here were the final results:

1. ShangTsung (ABL, ERY, AKU, CLW)
2. Flash___ (YUN)
3. stekoh (ABL)
4. SPAMMERR (KEN)
5. vindk8 (DHA, ELF, GKN)
5. furyblitz (YAN)
7. fknbun (IBU)
7. fkn_Rossco (BXR, ROS)

Grats to Flash in particular for being the giant killer of the night, taking out the likes of genxa, rossco, vindik8, SPAMMERR and stekoh in consecutive matches to make the final.

Big thanks to FithAlucard for stepping in as co-commentator at the last second, and disabling my headset drivers (htf do you even do that) with screaming.

Full bracket/results available here: http://thursdaynightthrowdown.challonge.com/tnt_28_5

Thanks to the 85+ (!!) people that tuned in during the night. We picked up some attention in Cali and France of all places, so hopefully we impressed.

It's every second week now? Bugger. That rules me out, bit like the locals, always seems to be on my working week!

Hopefully I'll catch one in the future.

Hi all,

Thanks to everyone who joined in on last tourney's stream. YSB is over for another month and the stream gear is set back up on my PC for another TNT. It's on the 9th of July which at the time of writing this is two days away.

Here are the results from the last tourney:

1. ShangTsung
2. If I Was Queen
3. Naruga
4. Varaky (CARNAGE)
5. Flash
5. TheThe
7. Niah
7. Team Magma Alice

Again, we start at 6:30 AEST.

Brackets are not finalised until seeds are arranged and other competitors are shuffled, so please don't worry if you've drawn a horrible match in your first round: it will likely change!

Do you keep video archives for belated viewings?
Title: Re: [AU PC] Thursday Night Throwdown: Bi-Weekly Online Tournaments!
Post by: Goodpart on July 08, 2015, 01:10:22 PM
Twitch is weird about archiving these days but I do save notable matches as highlights. The archives are kept for about 1-2 weeks after the fact.

Hi all,

Firstly, an apology about last TNT: Optus was having serious issues and three out of the four exchanges in my immediate area went red. My connection took a pretty massive hit and we had to move the tournament elsewhere. So I'd like to start by giving A HUGE THANKS to Colonov for holding it down. TNT wouldn't have gone ahead without him!

Here were the results from last week:

1. ifiwasking (ELE)
2. No Sagat Shoots Forever (ROL)
3. Niah (CLW)
4. Flash (YUN)
5. SOCHSHORTS (ELE)
5. thethe (RYU)
7. mutcharmer (GUY)
7. Andruthless (SIM)

Congrats to Shang for yet another victory. Carnage came close, but not quite! Also commiserations to Niah for making it past 5th place and now having literally no reason to be mentioned in these posts.

It's that time again, and I'll make sure that this time I stress test my connection well in advance just to make doubly sure. Hopefully EVO got you all keen to play again.

Again, we start at 6:30 AEST on July the 23rd: that's this Thursday coming.

Hi guys,

Just a quick heads up about TNT this week. Unfortunately it won't be running due to it being on at the same time as the INSERT COIN(S)​ event at the Oxford Art Factory. Your regularly scheduled programming will resume two weeks from now, on the 20th of August.

See you then!

Here are the results from the last TNT:

1. ShangTsung
2. Niah
3. fknbun
4. stekoh
5. Hisoka
5. YHC-Mochi
7. SPAMMERRR
7. kogur3

Grats to Shang, once again -- though this time he had to come from losers to get there, with Niah knocking him into the bottom half of the bracket. Vega-Fei too rotten. 8)

This will likely be the last TNT run pre-OHN as I'm packing and preparing ahead of the event. We're doing away with the laptop in favour of the desktop, which should be good fun. Speaking of which, you should totally sign up for OHN! http://ohn.ozhadou.net
