The Killer Challenge Cup Play Off

The draw is here...

Uprising v Black Scorpions v Funky Pool Devils v Cues Brothers

Games to be completed by 01st May 2016.

3 players per team and the winner goes through to the final.

I am leaving it up to the captains to agree a suitable date and time, if they can then advise me of this agreed date and time no later than the 20/04/16. If a suitable time cannot be found between the teams, the games will be played at default date and time chosen by me randomly which could be any date or time within the fixture period.

And as per usual the only thing that is pathetic is your posts

ab_rfc picked a random day out of the 7 days of next week and a random time from 7pm, 8pm or 9pm. I asked him for 2 numbers, one from 1 to 7 and then one from 1 to 3, he had no idea what he was picking numbers for thus why it is totally random and no clan can complain............correction one clan will complain as per usual as the whole world is against them, well you will need to add random number picking to your list.

All 3 clans were advised to arrange a time among themselves or it would be chosen by random, so the only other people to blame are yourselves.


Thanks

That's NOT ideal for us^ and probably not for uprising either.. But the 8.30 compromise wasn't good enough and we were forced to go to a random default so I accept that .. I really don't know why everything always has to be "you're screwing phoenix over".

You do it to yourself over and over and over again. You dictate times not best for the other 66% of the teams and then throw a strop because it didnt go your way. And then its everyone elses fault and everyones against you. Cant you get it through your skull........you are your enemy. No one else. Your right though it is pathetic, how you never learn.

http://www.funkypool.com/thread/20382/phoenix-revenge-willing-to-fight-till-the-bitter-end/77#1823121

Always said 9 pm is late and have the sources to back it up Ash, We aren't going to say "Oh Phoenix can't make it, Quick we have to change to 9 pm" Nope. Was willing to compromise to 30 minutes earlier, 30 minutes doesn't seem long in Killer but in terms of playing time, 30 minutes earlier is a huge deal.

Also said if you compromised to 8:30 then i would accept your time even though its late still.

but noooooo, You suggested 8:30 after i suggested 8 pm (as 9 pm is too late and know Uprising played at 8 pm before).

THEN after speaking to your players you went back on your suggestion which means you only want 9 pm to suit your own needs and don't think about the other two teams involved.

THEN after joey posted about Sundays, you changed to Saturday to suit joey, still at 9 pm i may add.

So who was trying to screw who? You were trying to manipulate us to agree to 9 pm so joey, fresh, legend etc could play. I knew what you was trying to do from the word go.

Trats plays from 5-7 and has never played in Killer so while he deserves the opportunity, it will never happen unless its Uprising as they suggested 7 pm. Why didn't i say 5 pm? because its unreasonable to the others involved.

Uprising's Time of 7 pm, may have suited us also but may not but at least the Killer finishes early so would have accepted. 9 pm start, 11 pm finish is simply too late.

and if Keith chose 9 pm, we wouldn't be happy either but would have accepted the decision as the Runners Say is Final and would rumble our troops for 9 pm.

I don't moan about the way it was done or blame the Runner. Runner was in a tight spot and i agree with the way he did the draw, If it was 9 pm then so be it.

In an epic 2 hours 45 minute Killer Final, Uprising had erigert, zantetsukenz and dv8 remaining.

It took 68 minutes for even one player to be eliminated.

1st Uprising (3 Survivors)
2nd Dragons (northman last to be killed)
3rd Phoenix (legend_pot last to be killed)

A very worthy battle indeed, it ended early for Phoenix but Legend held his own well with 3 or 4 Uprising behind him. Next Dvz went to an Uprising onslaught then Harry after. North played a reckless black then Uprising killed it off.

Judging by how long this took even 8 pm was late so 7 pm in future i feel lol. The Default time would have taken it close to Midnight.

Well played Uprising and grats on the win

No offence James, but I would never call it an epic final. It was a team of four uprising in a row setting each other up gobbling up most of the black balls available. Would have been more enjoyable if a fairer split, but that's the beauty of random haha

Was a good laugh in the room, which made the boringness less of an issue at least.

Congratulations to all who played and of course to the winners uprising!

Totally agree there Alex - Congratz to Uprising but surely if a cluster of players from the same side are drawn together then couldn't a shuffle around be done before the start?

I can only imagine how comfortable it must have been not having to play safe for long periods of time with just having to set up the fellow player...how boring. Kinda defeats the object and point of playing killer IMO.

Still ever likely it took what was it 68 mins to kill anyone off.

It's team killer. You get the setup that you get. It's annoying enough to get a game started at all. Now you want to restart games because you're not happy with the setup?
Just play the game guys...

When Cue Brothers where in it and we had too play Phoenix and FPD . I think it was there was four Phoenix players together in that one and nothing was said then? Its just a random set up which it should be, Uprising got the luck of the irish last night with the set up of the players, does that necessary mean they won because of it? I do't think it does but i do think the 5 player games need too be looked at as over two hours for a killer is far too long.

Thank god for the players the default time was not 9PM 8PM was nearly wrong time as well in this case haha

Biggest piece of professional jealously i have ever seen so Phoenix got knocked out first, big deal.

It was an epic final because it took over an hour to kill someone then it took nearly three hours to finish draining every player in the match.

so the order wasn't in your favour, same could be said for the other two teams as erigert and northman had to do the safety while no disrespect to them, i think both teams wanted a robot to do the safety so the order screwed us all.

Order could be anything from all 5 players clustered from all three teams to free for all for every player. Unfortunate for Phoenix that order didn't go their way but if it did where i agree with Jay is that nothing would be said and if Phoenix won, you would be boasting how amazing the victory was.

So circumstances come into it again, first call Keith and Alan biased for randomly choosing 8 pm where if it was 9, you would be praising.

exactly the same scenario here as well, things don't go your way so you moan.

As for setting up, you can't help the card that was dealt. I bet you don't tell Phoenix to kill each other as its "boring" to set up your team which is the aim to start with as well as kill other enemies.

Alex as for Blacks it is the right thing, The aim is to stop other enemies gaining lives while gaining lives yourself. A tip in normal killer is even give the black to someone on 3 lives.

It is about strategy.
