CB10: Last contest break.

By Brian on July 18th, 2009 under CB10,

Day 28The Quarterfinals have ended, and now our Semifinals are set up. On Sunday, we will have our Virtuous Semifinals--Solid Snake vs. Raiden and The Boss vs. Naked Snake. The points for the Semifinals are as follows: 250 points for a fully correct prediction, 125 for getting just the winner, and 0 if you're wrong. So I wish you all luck there. Most of you have a chance to get some very decent points here--some more than others. As I just scored the battles for the four Outer Haven Quarterfinals--wow, what a difference 2 days makes. Ocelot and Mantis won their battles yesterday, as I said. Vamp and Liquid won tonight's, and still, the fight for 2nd and 3rd continue. However, poor Zack, who'd been fighting so long in 2nd and 3rd for pretty much the whole contest, did not get a single battle correct in the Outer Haven Quarterfinals, and sank to 7th place. I can only hope his champion is somewhere in the Virtuous Division for him to have a shot at climbing back. E and myself took all 4 Outer Haven battles--I zip up to 4th, and E, while still hanging near the bottom, moved up a few spots. Saya and Liam were in 2nd, and remain in second. Nilfalasiel, Saya, Liam, and C&T; all got the same amount of points, so Nil keeps her 150-point lead as we head to the Semifinals. So here's the leaderboard--it's got a little bit of a new look now: you'll notice in the Battles Behind column, you see things like <1, <2, etc. Because the points for the next 4 battles are 250 each, <1 means that you're less than 250 points behind. <2 means less than 500 points behind, etc. So enjoy your weekend--the contest resumes Sunday night.

CB10: Outer Haven Quarterfinals, Battle 4

By Brian on July 17th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 56So everyone got an extra hour and a half of voting time. My power was out and just came back a couple of minutes ago, which was good. Had the power been out for too much longer, I would not have been able to update to the next set of battles--and with a break coming up, it would've meant that when the contest resumes Sunday, you'd be given 4 battles to vote on. But, it's 9 PM, and I'm gonna give you these battles now. Because it's a bit late, there will be no leaderboard update tonight, but you'll get one tomorrow, barring another thunderstorm that knocks out my power. Revolver Ocelot and Psycho Mantis each beat their opponents by the same score: 12-6. So here you go, the last battles of the Quarterfinals. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here.

CB10: Outer Haven Quarterfinals, Battle 2

By Brian on July 16th, 2009 under CB10,

Battle 54So two days of Quarterfinals are gone, and the Virtuous Semifinals are now set: Solid Snake takes on Raiden, while The Boss will take on Naked Snake. They hope to be very interesting battles, considering that one of those pairings actually happen in a game. But for now, we shift onto the Outer Haven Quarterfinals. Tomorrow I post the last of the Quarterfinals, and then the contest takes a break until Sunday, when we have the sprint to the finish with the last 5 days of battling. Coming fast, folks. But for now, we battle on. A leaderboard will come soon, but for now, vote. Remember to vote at my LJ when you've finished placing your votes here. See what I mean? The infighting at 2nd and 3rd continues. Tania maintains her 150 point lead.
