Here's the event where Denrick won. It was a wave format, where each army had to be from a particular wave.
Dad_Scaper saying wOOt? Standards have been slipping in my absence. I suppose I should be grateful that they're Os and not 0s.



But yes, that looks like a clear-cut decision for Denrick.

Re: Champion for a Day...

I was wondering if that was a "legal" Grok Champions Day myself. I don't mind which way it goes, but Lettucemode still has to win that game to win the Championship, so the Groks are glorified for a little bit. I don't know...

EDIT: It seems like it might be hard going forward with all the newer formats that are coming out to get some less used figures used more if we say that that Grok (or whatever figure)'s Champion Day wasn't legal because the format favored it.

Anyways, either way...we all now know the Groks can win in a Tournament situation.

Yeah, I think this has been discussed a few times and I don't think it's a problem. It's fine to have events that have a winning player but not winning units and a lot of strange new formats seem to be fitting this description.

I think this is importantly different from saying that it was not allowed because the "format favored" something.

Also, the goal is not so much to get units played more, but to point out that they already are being played. The thread was started initially as a counter to those who were talking as if the tournament scene consisted of five or ten units that won everything and that nothing ranked lower than B was ever seen.

I was curious how this thread was intended to handle drafts and take 2 tournaments in regards to figures. Or is 'champion for a day' only taking into account blind tournies?

Someone could win 7 games at a take 2 tournament with only playing a figure they brought once, or even not at all....

Re: Champion for a Day...

This bit from a few posts back captures my thoughts on this:

I think the tournament metagame has changed substantially since the thread was started to include a lot more formats that have "a winning player but not winning units" such as Take Two.

This has gone hand-in-hand with an even more varied selection of units, presumably, but not one that this thread is well-suited to capture.

Re: Champion for a Day...

I'd have to agree with that, considering Online Scape uses a variation of Take 2 for most of its events. 5/7 of the events it puts on are a variation of Take 2. With the Gencon-Prep event(RTW) and the Draft Event being the exceptions.
@ollie when are you going to get your beak wet in Online Scape?

This still isn't updated though. I hate to think of all those people across the country trying to win with White Wyrms and Molty thinking they could be the first to do it only to learn the patent had already been applied for.

Re: Champion for a Day...

We might be able to update this in a few months! 60% of the Online Classic League participants are using a figure who has not been reported as ever winning a tournament* Not sure which figure has the most likely chance though....


*played every round
