The first time I was at a tournament IRL I lost every single match. I got destroyed 6-0 in pools and got eliminated from the tournament, but I didn't get discouraged, I came back and tried to do better. At the end of the day we all have different reasons for playing comptetitively, but if the only thing you like is winning, then you're gonna have a bad time, no one wins everything. Take this as you will.

Overall, while my ending to the tournament was a bit disappointing I've learned a lot from last year and this years competitions. The system used was a lot easier this year then whatever that Buchholz thingy was last year and all.

Good luck to everyone going forward in the playoffs.

I didn't make it as far as last year this time but I can't say I didn't have fun. I had some very fun and close matches this time. Even and the match that eliminated me was close. HUGE thank you to Frosty for hosting another tournament for the community and good luck to everyone still in it.

The tournament is over for me after loosing against Rosie, but I think I had a lot of fun this year playing the tournament : close matches, friendly opponents etc...
Thanks to frosty for the organisation and the time he spent doing everything so that the competition could go one without any problem.
And just a word to Ralph, my first mp tournament was 3 or 4 years ago (in 2014 or 2015 I think) and I got completely destroyed by players like RC, and I also felt frustrated and like a complete noob even though I was playing the game for 3 years already. I just practiced a bit, and even if I today I just play occasionnally the bit of practice paid and I managed to go futher in the competition, just don't give up =)
Good luck to those who are still in the game!

That's me finished for the year. Ggs to all I have played, I enjoyed every match and learnt a lot from the tournament. The system used this year was certainly better than last year's, a much larger proportion of matches were close leading to fun games and plenty of HYPE. Looking forward to next year :)

Thanks to Frosty for organising another tourney and good luck to all those still participating.

GGs, Xedron. 4-1 is telling, not even close in the end. GL those of you who are left, esp hP since I have my bets on you winning the whole thing.

I got my ass kicked. That's not what matters. I met every goal I wanted to meet this year, I can't regret anything this tourney. It's really been a blast. Btw perks, no hard feelings, you didn't mean it. I look forward to seeing the final two matches.

I'm just gonna say what everyone else said, huge thanks to Frostfire for organizing this tournament through lots of frustration following last year, you are one of the reasons this community is still thriving and having a great time playing one of the best games ever.

GL to Perks and Higuy/Rosie in the finals.

I'll repeat what Xedron said. I got my ass kicked.
Fault Line was incredibly stupid and I basically gave up after Perks got three blues in the first 10 seconds, but whatever. It was doomed to fail. :P

I didn't expect to make it as far as the finals, and cheers to Frostfire for rigging the tournament so I'd get the top seed everyone who I battled in the playoffs. There were some really tough games you all played, so very nice job to Lichable, MBC, and HiGuy.
Kudos to Frostfire for setting up and managing another tournament. I had a blast!

And of course, I can't go away without saying congratulations to hPerks for winning the tournament! You played a fantastic match and you deserve the title. I'll get the trophy next year. :)

Narcissism alert. I denied hPerks his clean sweep.

First player ever to get all of the Awesome Times.

Congratulations on winning the 2017 Summer Gem Hunt Tournament, hPerks! Do you have any wise words for the other competitors and audience to hear?

"Yes, I do."

Tell us a few words, then! Tell us something that you want everyone to learn for the next tournament.

Grats to hPerks for sealing up the title as the favorite! Well deserved I bet and sorry I wasn't there to provide my epic presence and commentate (lul) but at least I did last year (hah). I'm sure HP had got some practice on fault line now...and can't wait to see how plat construction turned out -- naturally my main (wo)man Rosie deserves some applause for making it this far. Let's see if she can pull a 2016 frosty and win after losing in the finals (hopefully not cause I'm participating :D)

The HyPp has come to a close but not for long!

Grats to Perks for winning the whole thing, and for Rosie for putting up a great fight to make an entertaining finale match.
Also thanks Frostfire as always for organising the tournament as always, gives me motivation to keep on practicing the game.
Well done everyone who participated and good luck next year

And uh, yeah I reached the Quarterfinals which is about as far as I expected to go, but hey no complaints here overall. Luck plays and will always play a part but a healthy slice of skill is always on show in these games.
And well, come back next year with more experience and knowledge and try to go one better, as always.

Congratulations to all who participated in the tournament!

As with the previous tournament, I have gone ahead and granted special web-achievements and titles depending on how well you finished in the tournament! Keep in mind all rewards are inclusive (e.g., hPerks will have all of the achievements listed below). I added one extra achievement this year due to how the bracket works, as you'll see below:

All Participants: Achievement and the 'Private' Prefix Title.

T9 and Above: Achievement and the 'Corporal' Prefix Title, and all subsequent achievements and titles.

T5 and Above: Achievement and the 'Sergeant' Prefix title, and all subsequent achievements and titles.

T3 and Above: Achievement and the 'Officer' Prefix title, and all subsequent achievements and titles.

Winner: Achievement, 'Commander' Prefix title, and the blue trophy flair icon, as well as all subsequent achievements and titles.

Enjoy!
