I'll be posting an update in a week or so on where we are in the tournaments, but its safe to say that we're in the home stretch. Fewer than 15 matchups left in both tournaments. We're now just mainly stuck on the straggler groups from earlier that are taking a longer time to work through the bracket.

Hey there everyone! It's been a while, and I think time to update everyone. Both tournaments are now reaching their finals stages, and only have a few games left.

First up we have the GvI Showdown. Those who are still alive right now, I just gave them the worst possible ranking they could have. The standings are as follows:

T3 xorxes
T3 CptMike
T5 MadMarx
T5 cspieker
T7 genghiz
T7 rdrivera2005
T9 Sereginss
T9 breaca
T9 bozotheclown
T9 mhsmith0
T9 Ezio
T9 Javatiger
T13 Roadhog
T13 MakTub
T13 Dipperjay
T13 Hellenic Riot

I've just listed the top 16, as that's the limit for the tournament prize pool.
Currently Ezio and Javatiger are playing a match, as well as bozotheclown vs breaca and xorxes vs CptMike (Semifinal)

And over in the FvA Showdown, we have the following rankings

2 xorxes
3 genghiz
T5 CptMike
T5 cspieker
T7 Ezio
T7 RoganJosh
T9 Dipperjay
T9 CCR
T9 svkrls
T9 MadMarx
T9 bozotheclown
T13 breaca
T13 goldfinger0303 :cry:
T13 swordsman3003
T13 dagabs0
T13 brkyzgn

Ongoing games here are swordsman vs dagabs0 and MadMarx vs bozotheclown. A lot of familiar faces between the two top groups, which means bigger prizes!

Links to the challonge are here and here .

Thanks for the update, Gokdfinger, lots of work no doubt. Just an updat that I think I’m out of both showdowns. My loss to RJ in FvA is logged and breaca just beat me 2-1 in the GvI losers bracket (gm3 tiebreak).

Just to speed things up a bit (since I know my part of the draw is behind) - dagabs0 is about to defeat CCR in FvA set 158 2-1

Another update everyone! We have our first Finals match!

The FvA Showdown Finals feature xorxes vs. cspieker, after cspieker bested genghiz in a tense semifinal match.

Links to the Final matches can be found here and here

The GvI Showdown is taking a little longer, with the top 5 players still battling it out. rdrivera2005 and MadMarx are battling it out here and here for 5th place. The winner has to go through a daunting gauntlet of cspieker and CptMike to have the privilege to challenge xorxes for the #1 spot.

Once both tournaments are done, I'll update everyone with a final rankings and deal out all those prize points you earned!

And we have our first winner! The FvA Showdown is complete! After cspieker took the first round and handed xorxes his first series loss of the tournament, xorxes took his revenge in round two and has claimed victory! Congratulations to him!

Meanwhile over in the GvI Showdown, MadMarx and cspieker are battling it out in a quarterfinal to see who can challenge CptMike to win the losers bracket.

Thank you for everyone who participated in the FvA Showdown. I will be handing out points to everyone at the conclusion of the GvI Showdown.

The longer this goes on the more praise you deserve for handling such a massive endeavor.
