The Knockout 2022/23: Qualifying - Batman





Batman [lemon] [hol]

Welcome to the qualifying round of this year's Knockout contest.

The Knockout takes place over 5 weeks. Where we play 4 games in a row. A set number of players from this round will qualify for the group stage and some of them go on to one versus one matches. Until one player wins the tournament.

The players that go forward will be seeded into 3 groups using a key letter (the first letter of the 6th placed player's name).

Qualifying thresholds:
10+ players enter = 9 qualify
14+ players enter = 12 qualify
17+ players enter = 15 qualify
etc

If you would like to take part please be sure that you are able to play in all rounds, in case you make it to the final.

Later games are Sensible World of Soccer '96/'97, Slam Tilt, and Buggy Boy.

Good luck everyone.

Round Ends: 23:59 (UK Time) on Saturday 17th December 2022

I'm no expert at this but I got to the end. "Tell all your friends about me."

(6 * 200,000) - 287,400 + 0 = 912,600

Oh, how annoying. In the roof of last level, I started to look for pressing F1-key to pause game and get picture of Joker. Didn't remember there was more enemy coming, and after a few second of shooting died there.

(5x200,00)-182710+(2x10,000) = 837,290

Only 2 days left. If you can make it to level 2 there's a chance of getting to the next round. Level 3 might secure it. And if we can get a few more players we could have more people go through to the next round. Get your scores in before the end of Saturday (UK Time).

Just enough time to get in a quick go.

(5x200,000)-230,640 = 769,360

Everything updated. Thanks for the entries. Sadly we lose 3 of you.

Next we need to seed and randomly allocate the top 9 players into 3 groups. The top 3 players form the head of each group. The next three (4-6) will be split into each group. And so on.

Bubba'n'Stix 2 v ? v ? v ?
LinesMachine v ? v ? v ?
Biscuit v ? v ? v ?

Our key letter is C = 3. Using that number we keep counting round players 4,5,6 until landing on a player. That player is removed and put in Group A and we do it again for the remaining players for Groups B and C. Then repeating it for players 7,8,9.

And the result is

6
4
5

9
7
8

Group A:
Bubba'n'Stix 2
capehorn
Messiah79

Group B:
LinesMachine
el_pasi
lifeschool

Group C:
Biscuit
Stevengton
Parpala

EAB got a favourable split there. New threads in a min.
