A double elimination dueling tournament was held on Sunday, December 11th at 10:00pm EST. Sign-ups started at 9:00, and by start time we had 16 participants signed up. The competitors were:
Scubasteve (Runner Up)
With four normal sized dueling arenas to speed things along, the winners bracket went smoothly. Everyone showed up for their matches and, after some skilled dueling, ScubaSteve defeated ReDxKiNgZ for the round one title.
Because the tournament was double elimination, you could lose one match and still make it to the final. Some players didn’t understand this and left, so several of the losers bracket matches were decided by default. The losers bracket final pitted ReDxKiNgZ against Orber(Major). ReDxKiNgZ got a well deserved win, advancing him to the final to face ScubaSteve yet again.
A special dueling arena was set up for the final match. It featured a number of walls as obstacles, plus a turret surrounded by walls that the players had the option to unleash. ReDxKiNgZ and ScubaSteve each got a bazooka, a med kit, a lazer (only lazers were allowed for the other matches) and squared off at opposite sides of the arena. When Eventsparrow signaled the beginning of the match, ScubaSteve shot two of the walls blocking the turret fire. Once the walls were gone, the turret killed ScubaSteve very quickly (without ReDxKiNgZ ever shooting him), making ReDxKiNgZ the winner and the champion of the Double Elimination Tournament.
