Alright! I put you into the "experimental bracket", since you did not specify.
If you want to compete for prize money, I can instead put you into the "serious bracket" on request.

Thanks, I'm pretty easy which bracket I go in, although got the impression the first bracket was just for Masters players? Either ways, I'll just go in whichever bracket isn't full.

^That was just some mis-information by me. Rather, Masters' players are banned from the experimental bracket, with the serious bracket being open for all and with the prizepool.

Hi,
about one week ago zxGanon took the tropy of this tournament, and with that a 50$ first prize.
But there were also two other secondary prizes which are now awarded among all games played in the tournament:

The $20 award for 'most creative play' (using UOE rules) goes to the quater final match between Happy and Mustapha, game one, where Mustapha tried to rush his opponent by loading sixteen medics, rocket troopers and rifle infantry into one sea transport and delivered them to the shoreline of his opponent.
While this rush ultimately failed, due to poor buildorder choices and a counter-rush by Happy, this rush played to the map layout of Aquarius and was a very creative way to use the the UOE rules changes which I had not anticipated. Congratulations Mustapha!

The $20 award for 'most abusive play' (using UOE rules) goes to the first quater final game between Blackened and Admiral Mo. This was a close one since Ganon and Happy made the double-rocket ranger shine in other games, especially Ganons micro in the second quater finals game against Eskimo, where his two rangers and crew took down a total of three harvesters of his Ill prepared opponent Eskimo.
However, Blackened, in his game, used so many rules of UOE abusively that he ended the game with a assets killed ratio of about 2:1 and won against mo who held 2/3 of the map for the e n t i r e game!!! He parked his longer-range destroyers on all ore fields, inhibinting mo's harvesting operations. He sent swimming tanya three times across the sea who demolished mo's base. He used the new depth charges on longbows to destroy several helpless submerged submarines from the air. Finally he bombared the shore with extended range cruisers so long that one actually got to g e n e r a l rank! (~34k destroyed by that single cruiser).
On top of that he was not even hesitating to call out "soviets imbalanced!" after winning the game. Well done, Blackened, congratulations on being the most abusive player of UOE! ;)

Cheers,
SirCake

Replays would be nice. At least of most creative and abusive play.
