We got so screwed that event.
In our Semi bracket we played agains the Ironmen (we hung their flag 100pts)
Florida Terminators (also hung their flag for 100pts).
And against Constant Pursuit (stalemate with them getting a pull) so we ended up with 240 point for our 3 games. This was almost a full 100 pts higher than the next place team. But get this, PMI, the main sponsers, had started a new point system that was absurd.
Flag hang=2 pts
Stalemate goes to bodycount and winner gets =2pts
Flag pull=1 pt
There was no incentive to go for a pull/hang, all you had to do is survive.
Teams that didnt even hang a flag advanced on to the Finals!
Once, teams figured out the logic, there wasnt even a flag hang in the 4 team final. Sooooo boring.
This Event was the 1st win for Bob's Ironmen when they started their 5+ year reign.
In fact, it was their first tourny using Bud's autococker. He was there personally to tech them (I should know, he kept me awake a few nights fiddling with his first version silenoid).
We still beat em.....
