Quoting the Prizes Thread
1st place (total points): each member of the first place guild gets 5 character points (if one of the top four players is in the winning guild, he will still receive these extra 5 points).

2nd place (total points): each member of the second place guild gets 2 character points (if one of the top four players is in the winning guild, he will still receive these extra 2 points).

I'm guessing CK won that? If so, that means all members from both guilds get 5 points each because of how it worked out - ¡Qué coincidencia!

Quoting FNJ in the R3 thread
Updated version [of guild points] looking only at the rules thread:
Average Gnomes: 11
Crimson Knights: 9
The Council of the Dragon: 2
Roaring Archons: 1
Hand of Defiance: 1

Updated version looking at LOM staff group + rules thread:
Average Gnomes: 46 --> 11 + 3 (gnome vs. gnome) + 32 (16 entries)
Crimson Knights: 45 --> 9 + 4 (knight vs. knight) + 32 (16 entries)
The Council of the Dragon: 13 --> 2 + 1 (dragon vs. dragon) + 10 (5 entries)
Roaring Archons: 5 --> 1 + 4 (2 entries)
Hand of Defiance: 7 --> 1 + 6 (3 entries)

So, based on only the Rules thread:
Average Gnomes: 14
Crimson Knights: 13

So it looks like AG won those points too...? (the results would be the same order by the other method, just we'd win by a bigger margin.)

Also, a HUGE thanks to the judges who hopped on board with Gilbert and me! Thanks Grant Davis, Matthew Oh, Graham Gidman, Fraser Robinson and Mark McPeek!
We also thank Mark of Falworth for stepping in for the last round.

Of course, there would not be a contest without contestants! So thanks to every one of you who participated in the contest! I hope to see you and a bunch more next year for The Tourney 2015!

Also to the judges who came in a bit later, but are still very much appreciated - Mark McPeek for The Tilt, and then Mark of Falworth for the last round.

Er - a little help on the points issue?

Sure thing. I'll be around more tomorrow to to help figure it all out - I have to be off for the day.



To contestants:
Final points will be revealed in a week's time (most likely earlier). In the meantime, what you think it is now may not be the final say. Sorry for the confusion.

Or the opposite - maybe you'll be fighting under me :)

Speaking of next year...perhaps smaller maximum number of members next year - maybe 5 like in the MA? That would make it more based on skill of the team and not on number of members, I think.

Or even require each team to have exactly 5 (or however many) members.

Hold on - based on the rules thread, each bracket victory is worth one point, each victory in the first and second rounds of the Tilt is worth two points and the championship victory is worth ten points. Now that I've gone back to the rules (at first I was thinking of the decimal points we used on the free-for-all rounds), these points count as follows:

Guild Rankings Based on Victory Points:

First Place: The Crimson Knights with 39 points
Second Place: The Average Gnomes with 30 points
Third Place: The Council of the Dragon with 7 points
Fourth Place: The Archons of the Roaring Lion and the Hand of Defiance with 2 points apiece

The Knights have earned a five-point bonus for each player with their leading score, and the Gnomes have earned a two-point bonus with their scores.

That's something to consider. I think (although my recollection of all the planning that went on in November and December is dim) that we debated that and chose a limit of sixteen on a trial basis. You can expect smaller teams next year.

Ah, so I was right the first time about the Knights winning. Just goes to show that maybe I should actually read the rules thread before citing it.

Speaking of the rules thread...

Quoting The Rules
• Tournament entries are worth three LOM points. The Tilt entries are worth 5 LOM points. The extra points determined by winning against your opponent will be distributed at the end of the competition)

I believe what Gilbert said is correct. And yes, the rules state that Tourney entries are worth 5 points instead of 3.
