Apterous World Cup 2014 - Qualifying

Post by Matt Morrison » Tue Apr 08, 2014 2:40 pm

The 16 top-ranked entrants are in the main competition. The rest of us lowly 32 will qualify or return to local competition by way of double elimination action.

The first round of randomly-drawn 16 fixtures is now in the system, so play away!
http://www.apterous.org/to_tourney.php?tourney=1202

Round 1
Michael Wallace - Dave Nicholson
Gevin Chapwell - Kieran Bray
Jason Turner - Kevin Stoba
Phil Makepeace - Rhys Benjamin
Jim Bentley - Jonny Rye
Matt Morrison - Anoush Khachik
Chris Marshall - George Pryn
Tom Barnes - Heather Styles
James Laverty - Peter Fenton
Ben Wilson - John Vivian
Jon Stitcher - James Bradley
Heather Badcock - Shaun Hogg
Amie Bateen - Antoinette Ryan
Tracey Mills - Brett Davids
Ian Volante - Mark James
Jon O'Neill - Thomas Carey

Double elimination details
The 16 winners will play each other with the 8 who win those ties going into the main competition.
The 8 losers will play each other with the 8 who lose going home.

The final round, of 16 one-time-winner-one-time-losers will play each other to get the final 8 entrants.

Each stage of the draw (including this first one) drawn randomly. I'm not yet sure whether I'm supposed to keep the fixtures 'fresh' for the final one-time-winners round, but don't plan to as it stands, pure random.

Organisation/playing
As per the main tournament this is of course AWC format games.
Charlie has kindly activated the email notifications for all fixtures - you'll now find an aptomail already set up to help you organise the fixture with your opponent.
There is no huge rush but I would imagine this first round being completed by Friday 25th April at the latest. Please.

Good luck all.

Stinks like I'm going to have to get an awkward bye for myself - now sent Anoush five messages without reply!

ANoush never replies to aptomails. I'll nudge him for you when he's back from his weekend away.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...
