    ROUND 2

    The list of matches for round 2 is available here!

    As you can see, there are now only 2 different regions: America & Europe/Asia/Oceania.



    Round 2 will take place on Sunday the 2nd of September (next Sunday), at the following times:
    • America: 4pm Pacific Time.
    • Europe/Asia/Oceania: 11:00 am UTC. In the UK and in Spain, this converts to 12:00 pm (noon), in France, Germany and Western Europe 1:00 pm, and in Australia (UTC+10) 9:00pm, and so on.
    Check the current Pacific Time and UTC Time on WhatTimeIsIt.com.

    IMPORTANT: if you can not attend your match, you MUST let me know (send me a private message) and the runner-ups of round 1 will replace you in your match.



    Good luck!

    (playing devil's advocate here) but will it be any runner up or only the one from the same match as the withdrawing winner? what happens if there's a tie between the runner-up position? Will they have to play another game?

    What makes you say that?
    I think there are 44 people competing in second round.
    I would rather say that all the people who compete in the third round will get a prize [​IMG]

    I will handle these cases personally but I doubt any comes up at all.
    People who are in the second round perfectly know what's at stake and I'm sure no one will miss their game.

    I just don't understand why matches #5 and #6 have six members while #7 and #8 have four.

    Once it's all Europe, Asia and Oceania, wouldn't be better to put five membes in each match?

    Just asking.;-)

    yeah... well the matches were originally made of 6 players, but it turns out the last match only had 2 players left.
    Since there were 8 players in the sorting page, I thought I'd go for 4+4 instead of 6+2...

    Oh, sorry, I misread your post.
    I thought you said that everyone who competes in second round wins a prize [​IMG]

    Oh wow, that's the prize that's given to a random person? I wonder, within that site, what it is...

    Still considering the Mystery Prize, I have a question: are all the people who signed up for the contest in, or just those who played the first match inwards? You know, I find it rather unfair for it to be given for someone who didn't ever showed up... [​IMG]

    Hmmm... I just thought:

    Europe, Asia, Oceania -> 20 members / 4 matches = 5 members per match.
    But whatever, I am from Americas. [​IMG]

    second round should be more challenging, and more people to show up this time I imagine.

    Good luck. [​IMG]
