the first one eh, how about a the article in the official newsletter i hope that counts. It is as followe:

*Qualifications:*

*Match 1* [Elite versus Universal Militia] 20 - 8

The first match played was at 13 September, FOE vs. Universal
Militia. FOE which turned out to be Elite which caused some problems
around the boards. The match was fun and a bit laggy as pings varied
from 30 to 250 in extreme situations. Though people live in other
states or continents it was a good game. However the match ended up
like 20 - 8 for Elite and now they have moved on to half final!

Y2K MASTER - Our match against UM was pretty fun. It was Viper and
Firebird VS. Sapphire Falcon and me. This whole tournament was a
little unorganized but it was the first tournament since the limited
test was released so there isn't anything like OGL set up but it went
very well. The tournaments in the future will be much more organized
and better since this was to test how it goes. All in all, OMF: BG is
shaping up to be a good tournament and laddering game for online play
and I think the full version will be promising because there will be
additional things.

*Match 2* [Fury Talon vs. eXceSs] 2 - 17

FT did their best but unfortunately for them XS was better.

*Match 3* [Antidote to life vs. Hyper-X] 0 - 20

This was the third and the last match to be played in the
qualifications at 21 September. hX beat ATL almost clearly. ATL
fought very well for a newbie clan against Beta clan. Mordax did
pretty well he beat fire up once. Some other members of ATL also
fought well. But it was very clearly that hX was about to win the
match without much resistance that kept them away of a clearly
victory.

SALEM - The participants of the fight were Mordax and me as the ATL
Clan, and Fire and Player from HX. We all used jaguar HARs for the
fighting. At the beginning we knew they were pretty good but we had
some hope of getting some points. As the battle transpired, HX team
were clearly leading the match ( if some one didn't expect it Razz )
they made notice of how good they are, for example I was defeated
with a great concatenation of movements and combos, big combos. But
well, it think we weren't so much bad playing as we are a newbie clan
playing OMF:BG, and for the training we have (nearly none, for not
saying none) I think we weren't so bad; once Mordax killed Fire, this
is a good signal, proving that if we train more perhaps we could
become a serious competitor; and by my side i nearly killed one HX
guy, but he killed me before i could give him the last hit.

FIRE - hX's tactical squad had been training for quite a bit back
then. Player came out with the idea of letter codes for common
in-game situations (s for stunned, etc.). The first match against ATL
demonstrated the efficiency of these codes. I was simply amazed. It
was as though we were in constant voice communication the whole
match. ATL did pretty well, but they were dispirited from the start,
which is not a good attitude. This was our first clan match in a
while, and we needed to build up our confidence a bit. Then came the
hX v XS match. Most of hX expected it to be a close match, but it
turned out to be otherwise. This was partly due to the unavailability
of skilled members from the XS side, which could be a sign of
disorganization. Again, the codes and pre-planned strategy worked out
mostly flawlessly.

Half Finals:

*Match 1* [eXceSs vs. Elite] 14 - 15

[http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-Elite.DEObjects
(url:
[url=http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-Elite.DEObjects)]]http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-Elite.DEObjects)][/url]

XS made a fairly good start but after a few rounds Elite made some
strategies up and began to win a couple of rounds. After a while the
score went up slowly all the time 1 for XS and 1-3 for Elite and so
on. There was a bit lag but in disadvantage of both clans. XS was
short in players so GhostCow had to sit on the bench. The best
players were Y2K Master and CyberFrog. Most rounds they were the last
players alive. It was an exiting match but Elite won and that's what
nobody expected.

AnonT - The match was good fun. XS took an early lead, but once Y2K
and I got used to CyberFrog's and Malfrex's style (and once I stopped
hitting Y2K when it went down to a 2v1), we made an excellent
comeback. They went from winning most of the first 5-6 rounds to
winning about one every three or four rounds towards the end.

Once the game really got underway, most rounds consisted of two 1v1s.
Y2K_Master and Cyberfrog were fairly evenly matched, both using
jaguars. Malfrex and I fought each other in Pyroses, and my wins over
Malfrex turned a number of rounds to our favor. The main problem with
the fight was that both Elite's "star player", Endy, and XS's
favourite happy grass spokesman, Cardy, were unable to make it.
GhostCow sat out because XS was short on players; most of XS' people
showed up for the second fight but skipped the first. Had different
members from each clan fought, things could have been very different
(and I don't necessarily mean in XS' favor). Lag was a bit of a
problem for both teams. I didn't notice it quite as much as Malfrex
and Cyberfrog, but it was an issue.

*Match 2* [Hyper-X vs. eXceSs] 15 - 3

[http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-hX.DEObjects
(url:
[url=http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-hX.DEObjects)]]http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/XS-hX.DEObjects)][/url]

One of the most rumoured matches of the tournament. hX vs. XS,
Hyper-X was in top conditioning and XS couldn't gather the player
they needed to win. So they lost against their biggest rival.

*Match 3* [Hyper-X vs. Elite] 15 - 0 (final deciding match)

[http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/hX-Elite.DEObjects
(url:
[url=http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/hX-Elite.DEObjects)]]http://tournament.omffansites.com/results/recordings/hX-Elite.DEObjects)][/url]

Elite did pretty well all tourney long and didn't expect to come this
far. Especially because they haven't got any Beta testers in their
clan! Elite did some nice damage to the hX members but still not
enough to win any round. One of the nice actions of Elite was that
GhostCow and AnonT did a double super firespin with some hX members
between them. All matches before made Elite way popular amount the
crowds. A pitty it had to end up like this for them hX was in a very
good shape this time and the server was almost lag free thanks to
Killer Roach.

FIRE - And then came the final match vs Elite. After Elite had beaten
XS, it experienced a huge popularity jump, and hX wondered if it
actually had a chance. Thankfully, we had a nearly-lag-free server
(KR's), and Elite experienced our code system at it's finest (ouch Wink
).

*Finals:*

Elite and Hyper-X decided to make match 3 the last match of the half
finals the final match. XS was already out because they already lost
all matches. Now hX is the champion till next tournament! I want to
thank everybody who helped us organizing this and participating the
tournament.

We're getting the next battlecast tournament organised soon. We are waiting for more people getting good at the game so we can get fair matches.

More later...

I think it's important to note that those recordings probably will not work with the current version of OMF.

Especially since they're Limited Test recordings.

Wouldn't have made much of a difference. Smile Do you know what Endy said in round 4 or so? "What's the point?" :thumbsup:

I remember those fights. Especially vs. GhostCow. He didn't know how to counter then. I kept spamming the front and stunning him. Then I did my super combo of the time. So much fun.

I gotta get Mort to host it for me at pker.org, I've just been too lazy to PM him. Good thing he has lots of <3 for the reporters. As for me not knowing how to counter.... I knew how, my timing back then was just horrid. I wish the old replays worked, that double sfs me and Anon did is definetly one of the high points of my gaming career
