The top 24 players on the leaderboard have progressed to the semi-finals. Congratulations to you :). Sorry for those that didn't make it.
From now on, each night at 23.59 local time (UTC+2/GMT+2) a round of the semi-finals will be played until the finals start coming Sunday at 20.00. So that's a total of 6 rounds before all finalists are known. The whole tournament scheme with winners and losers can be viewed on the Semi-finals page
Good luck to the semi-finalists!

Lucky #13! Oh yeah, lost my final 3 games just to make the spot. I now get the distinct privilege of playing #1 SupremeDalek first! And AdsRiskbot shares the same bracket as well. So one of us (him) gets to play AdsRiskbot 2nd most likely. My demise will be swift and well delivered!

Why did you set up the bracket that way instead of this way: http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread?ThreadID=34646&Offset=390 I mean I get the first tier, but the second tier is different as explained.

Hmm, you're completely right. The top 6 bots shouldn't face off against each other until the actual finals, this is obviously not what's happening right now. I'll check with Jim whether we can fix this today.

I believe it was intended like this. He mentioned that in this way, you will see interesting matches in the semi finals already!

No it was actually a small bug that mixed up the order a bit. It's corrected now. Sorry for the inconvenience. The way it is set up now should maximize thrills and excitement!

This is slightly better, but now SupremeDalek (1) and Trogabot (5) are in the same poule. Also GreenTea (2) and WisdomsPower (6) are in the same poule. Is that intentional?
Furthermore: can you explain how the 2 best losers are selected to go to the finals? From the diagram I cannot figure out how you select the top 2 losers from the last 3.

The way it is now is how it's supposed to be.
And yes, all 3 bots will play once against each other, so that's three games in total. The bot that loses both games is out of the tournament. It's possible that all bots win once, then the bot that takes the most rounds to win his games is out.

Well that sucks... 1 v 5 first round?

I thought you would use seed distribution http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seed_(sports)
But currently it seems a bit different. Maby not to reinvent the wheel?

^^ that's what I figured as well. This way if 1 and 2 both win all games, they won't meet until the finals anyway

That's true in this distribution as well. Top player's will meet in the finals. But here some of the first games are exiting too, not just a sure win of rank 1 vs rank 20.

Well that changed things up a bit. You've now deprived me of the privilege of playing #1 first! I craftily finished 13th for nothing apparently, damn! Now I'm just going to get blended up and spat out and where's the fun in that!? SupremeDalek was going to channel his hatred to rip me apart and eat the cheese straight out of my stomach, Blender is just going to make me into some silly smoothie or something.

I don' understand matching system. Why there are now same matches in the looser pool as in the first round. (only TheeYo and Webmartino is exception). I think that you can skip todays matches and you can use previous results. (its a bit sarcasm)
I am glad that there was this competition. It was fun to compete but semifinal matching system is not good. Bots from ELO places 5.,6.,7. are out since round 2 and now same bots in matches in round 3 as in round 1.

Yeah, it's not fun having to all fight the same person twice. We can guess with high probability the results of all the matches from the first round as none of them were close matches. Gadzbot even managed a clean sweep. Guess we'll get to see if he can do it twice for a 10-0 against his opponent.
