Tournament report

Call of the Duck and website updates

As we announced in our last post we’ve now we’ve now passed 500 members and are quickly moving past that milestone. To celebrate we gave out a uniquely decorated duck call in our last Thursday FFA tournament. With the tournament’s winner, This Guy, having declined the prize, we will be awarding the custom duck call to the runner-up, VirtualFishbowl.

A few features have been added to the website today. Most notably the mobile version is more usable, some share buttons have been made available (more can be added on request) and you can subscribe to receive email notifications at the bottom of every post.

Congrats White Ink and Slinky, winners of the Harmony Cup

Slinky’s hat is already in production.  Ink’s is near completion.  You can see Slinky’s on the right.  I’ll post Ink’s hat once we get the design finalized.  A huge thanks to Becer, AD, and all of our experienced players and newcomers for making this a great event!

Our next tournament will be a standard FFA this Thursday..  Thanks to Truffulaseed, I have a prize for the winner of Thursday’s game.  He is generously giving away the following two games:

  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • WarHammer: End Times – Vermintide

Also, be on the lookout for a few special casual events.  We may make announcements soon just to get people together in a setting outside of a tournament.  Think “1v1 me bruh” or “8 player madness hour”.  Sometimes being spontaneous can be fun :}

The December Donation Drive is still in full effect.  Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to pay for domain hosting and all prizes.  We are still accepting donations and awarding badges to those who do.  Even a little bit helps!

Be on the lookout for an impromptu event outside of our regular tournaments.  We have some plans that should make things super fun for every level of player, from the new guy to the This Guy.

Edit:  Ink’s hat is also on the way!  Check it out on the left!  Classy.

11/5 Update

Congrats to This Guy, winner of the Duck Call tournament last Thursday!

In one week, on Saturday, November 12th, we will have our very first 2v2 tournament at 10:30pm EST. I have had many requests for a Saturday game, as well as ample interest in a 2v2 match. We will need to pick partners and hats in advance for this game. If anyone has a great idea for how to arrange this, please let me know.

After literally weathering the storm, we completed the Feather Cup tournament.

Congrats Feather Cup Winner

Goat-on-a-stick took home the cup (or received it via USPS in this case.)

Xatmamune engineered an entire retroactive stats system. Check it out here.

Several players have stepped up to offer prizes to future winners, including a full version of Fallout 4, and … get this … a duck call custom-painted with the winner’s hat.

As of the time of writing, we have had nine successful tourneys. We host the tenth tonight.

I am looking forward to seeing you there!
