2014 No Hammer Tournament
« on: February 24, 2014, 10:41:17 am »
2014 No Hammer Tournament

A head to head single elimination bracket  tournament open to all DK players. Seeding format will be determined by No Hammer HSL a poll (HSL, No Hammer HSL, Random draw, NCAA selection committee, seeding play day). If a player does not have a score on the NH HSL list a random draw will be used to fill out the brackets with those players.

If a hammer is touched anytime during the game the game is considered ended at the completion of the previous board (If you grab a hammer on 8-6 you lose to someone who ends on 8-6 but beat someone who ends on 8-5).

It will be one game each with no restarts after the first board. The winner will be the player who gets the farthest into the game. If both players end on the same board,  the player who got there first wins.(include the DKF clock in your stream) Bring on the yolo.

First round will be announced April 16. Each round will have a week to complete the matches . A generic start time will be given for each round (Friday 6pm DKF time). This time is the earliest that a match can start if the competitors of a match cannot agree on a start time. Ideally the competitors will agree on a time to start and play their games at the same time. Both players of a match must post the agreed upon start time to override the generic start time. Crank up the pressure.

All games must be streamed and an announcement of when you plan on streaming be made at least an hour beforehand in this thread.

At this point the prizes are:

Overall winner: 50$ and a sweet badge

Farthest in game: 25$

Fastest to 6-1: 25$

Players eliminated from the tournament get one game per week to compete for the prizes.

This is all for fun and to get people playing DK the right way. Rules subject to change.

Thanks to Jon and Dan for each pledging 25$ towards the cause  ;D

Thanks to Chris for the registration form (closed now)

Thanks to Jeremy for the bracket and updates http://challonge.com/2014nohammer

Thanks to Jeff for the clock, sweet badge, and the place great DK things happen

There will be a clock on the front page of DKF for this event. Everyone will just need to put it into a screen region on their stream. That way everyone is using the same clock.

Sweetness. Man I've gotten to 9-6 before but the game is sooooooooo frustrating. I know I was at 8-6 with NO Deaths and lost em all on that board before. It can be a cruel mistress I tell you. Anyway I'll throw $25 at the prize pool as well for now.

Thanks Jon and Dan  ;D . I wasn't asking, just waiting to see how things shook out but love it. If you have a preference to how it should be allocated let me know.

 I've updated the prizes

Is everyone good for mid April ? or do you want a March start with a 2 week break ?

I have a NH score that was on TGs scoreboard, would that be my score? Or is that database gone?

Edit: Nevermind I just discovered the high score list.

What is the cut-off date for submitting scores to the No-Hammer High Score List?
