3f was already in the playoffs before he quit. This could have been avoided if 3f had let me know that he was quitting, but I had no notice of it before the drawing, so he remained in the 13 seed.

GGs to all, I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in this tournament and feel my skills have massively developed. Some strange matchups, but every game was enjoyed and I feel I luckily ended up in a decent position overall.

Looking forward to next year's tournament, I will hopefully have much more skill and luck by then so will be interesting to see the outcome. :)
Thanks also to Frostfire for hosting.

My prediction for the final - Frostfire 5 - 3 Higuy (Thanks perks, didn't notice that impossibility)

Yeah, you played well, Tue - those tiebreaks were a doozie though. Sucks that quite a few good players had to get eliminated due to inactivity as well.

My prediction for the final - Frostfire 5 - 3 hPerks

Unfortunately Frosty and I won't be meeting in the finals - we're in the same group for the semifinals, so if we do play, it'll be there. But I'd say any of Kalle, HiGuy or MBO, if they reach the finals, could give Frosty a good game as well. Should be exciting!

Unfortunately I can't bet in this tournament but here are my predictions for the outcome

Round of 16

-Frost beats Tue
-This is a very tough one...but I will say that El_Robert will win 4-2 against Regi.
-3f the pleb already forfeit (just kidding keep making great levels :P ) and hPerks wins
-Higuy beats NatureFreak
-Kalle beats Weather
-MBOUltimate beats Lee

Quarterfinals

-Frost beats El_Robert
-hPerks beats Eguy, but Eguy can still manage to get to 4-1 or 4-2 if he plays strong.
-Higuy beats J@ckrb
-Another really tough match...but I would give it to Kalle by one game.

Semifinals

-Frost beats hPerks with a 4-2 win, but hPerks has a small chance.
-Higuy beats Kalle in a very close 4-3 match

Finals

-Frost beats Higuy, but I'm not going to 100% rule Higuy out yet...he's gotten insanely good recently and got a huge upset over Kalle in the swiss rounds, so maybe he can show some impressive showings :)

It was really fun to participate in this tournament and I'm very excited for the next one :) . Thank you Frosty for hosting it and good luck to everyone who's still in.

Little idea I got... What do you guys think about a huge multiplayer party after the tournament is over?

J@ckRB v Xedron



An intense 4-3 match between the 7 and 10 seeds in the first round of the playoffs. Congratulations to Jack for pulling it off, but a very well-fought game from Xedron as well.

Please watch Vortex, it is a crazy intense game.

Quartefinals are over, and here are the semifinal matchups:

(1) Frostfire v (4) hPerks

(7) J@ckRB v (3) Kalle

Well done to all the survivors (especially Jack for ousting the 2 seed!), and we had some very hard-fought matches from the losers, especially Regislian and MBOUltimate who lost 3-4.

Semis can be played ANY TIME from now until the deadline on the 27th. Good luck to all!

Just a little question, about the videos : why is there no sound/music?

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

Some of the videos do have sound, it's just that many of us play without sound or with music, instead of the ingame sounds.

The tournament is officially over.

Frostfire 5 - 3 Kalle in the final.

I'm quite happy about my win but Kalle was an extremely difficult opponent to face, and if the luck had gone his way the result could perhaps have been different. Vortex certainly spawned in my favor and you could make an argument that King of the Ring should have been his as well (though it is quite a small map). Nonetheless luck is part of multiplayer and it was a very well-fought match from both sides.

Matan's video will be up soon.

To conclude, I hope everyone had a good time in the tournament this year. We saw many glorious victories and brutal losses, and players' skills improved loads. No promises but there will most likely be another similar tournament next year from me, and perhaps I will run some one-day tournaments in the upcoming months. We will see.
We had a very successful tournament this year (new record for least DQs!) and some seriously close matches, including a climactic final. Loads of thanks to everyone who participated, everyone was responsible and the result was a clean tourney! :)

P.S. I am planning a tourney-related surprise in the next few weeks; keep your eyes open!
