And with that, the final results are in:
3rd. Orphen Nightford
Winning my own tournament would have been weird, and it would have looked like I rigged the games in my favor
which I did, but didn't work.
Although, part of the reason why I made it this far was because most teams didn't account for Normalize Gengar, so I managed to make my way to the finals with that.
As far as hosting the tournament goes, I'm glad every fight was done. I figured out nagging people through Discord to get to fight, was more effective than posting here, so I did that. Forfeits and free passes were an issue in previous tournaments, and I was afraid this problem would be more notorious in double elimination, but fortunately that was not the case. The double bracket did extend the tournament, but didn't cause any forfeit, so every placement on the final ranking was fair.
And that's it. The tourney's over. Take your trophies and go home.
