Chris Butler Ouch, lost my head twice there. Now to play the waiting game

Chris Butler

Chris Butler It looks like the next round is going to start without any players, which would be a first. Must be a busy time of year!

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor Yeah, gonna hold off a bit before playing mine. I like to see what I have to achieve to get through as it seems to help me.

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell It's not just this round. This tournament seems to have ground to a halt generally. The unplayed games in the previous rounds have been that way for a long time.

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor I know I had the 2 previous rounds on the back burner for a while, but I have played them both well within the deadline. However it does appear that the rounds seem to be having exponentially less games in them at any time.

Chris Butler

Chris Butler To be honest, tt's not really important, it's the final day deadline that is the important one and that will soon sweep up the deadwood.

I understand that people play it to suit their own needs, ie it's nice to know what is needed before you play but obviously not everyone in a round can have that luxury.

I also realise that Co:Manchester might affect a few players this weekend. Whatever the reason for it slowing down, I like to think it's not for lack of motivation

Ben Andrews

Ben Andrews Honestly I'm just scared to play this, haha

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor Same lol

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell I'm really happy I already have! *smug mode* (No doubt I'll crash out in the next round now.)

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell Looks like you were right Chris. Octorock is up, but with no players!

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor I'm surprised octorock is after stuff like bullet hyper. I would have thought octorock was probably easier.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier By the system I've used they are roughly comparable due to Caeser being the opponent here and Rex in the octorock. If the opponent was the same then bullet hyper would indeed be after octorock.

Chris Butler

Chris Butler Yeah Octo has moved back from R16 last year to 19 and Hyper Bullet moved forward from R21 to 18, both I presume due to a combination of luck of the draw and bot. Biggest mover seems to be Octolock, which was R10 last year and is still yet to feature this year!

Zarte Siempre

Zarte Siempre There, now Gevin can go through and you can all stop commenting about no-one playing.

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell Thanks, Zarte!

Sean Fletcher

Sean Fletcher and Zarte can join you, Gevin.

Ben Andrews

Ben Andrews Phew! I was expecting that to be really tough but it turned out okay.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Please disregard Sean's 160, that game is being replayed.

Zarte Siempre

Zarte Siempre How come? What's wrong with it?

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Due to extreme disconnection issues, Sean offered to replay his game for transparency.

Zarte Siempre

Zarte Siempre I see, OK.

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor I hope 140 might just about see me through.....

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor Just gotta play the waiting game...

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell You've put Chris Butler through on a tie-break.

Chris Butler

Chris Butler Phew, I was beginning to get scared such was the high standard. Good luck to those still in the fight

James Laverty

James Laverty Might as well crash out in style....

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Gev's impressive effort pipped at the last by Rahul's cracking max game for Strongest Link this round.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier With one going out in style and the other extremely unlucky to get the worst of a 4-way tie we lose two players who can be pleased with big improvements on their 2016 positions. James and Phil, you are the Weakest Links, Goodbye!

Chris Butler

Chris Butler You know it's a high standard when the 2nd best game in the round wins Game Of The Week!

Phil Collinge

Phil Collinge Cheers Matthew. Looking forward to the next one (assuming that there is one!)

James Laverty

James Laverty Cheers Matt. Completely underperformed last year so feel I've redeemed myself a bit

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Nice one guys. Next year's is pencilled in the diary!

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell I think Phil was really unlucky there. Especially after getting 12 of the first 13.

Tourney round: Weakest Link Numbers Tournament 2017: Round 18 - Bullet Hyper

<< Round 17 - Nasty | Round 19 - Octorock >>

Notes from the organizer: Unlucky for some, round eighteen sees the final 13 playing a Bullet game in Hyper format against Apterous Caesar. Caesar will choose just 2 large numbers and may well fail to trouble the scorers.
The two lowest scoring players in this round will leave the tournament. If there is a tie for lowest scores then margin of victory/defeat will be taken into account amongst tied players followed, if necessary, by total score in the tournament so far (see notes by matches).
Good luck!

Ran from: 10 – 23 March 2017. Format: Bullet Hyper Numbers Attack. Matches: One-off. Approved.

Organizers: Matthew Tassier.

Fixtures: 14. Completed: 14.
