We alternated each tournament round between BBG-04 Zero-G Attack Stadiums, BBG-11 Zero-G Defense Stadiums and the BBG-18 Balance Stadiums, and used the Balance Stadium exclusively in the Finals.

Today's Swiss format tournament saw 6 Bladers go to the finals. 4 were MD regulars, 1 was a NC regular, and 1 was brand new to competitive blading! (WTG gullwhiz!!!)

Here are the results!

1st place: geetster99
2nd place: Dark_Mousy
3rd place: Arupaeo
4th place: gullwhiz - who still got a prize because I don't take prizes at my own tournaments Eee

The next tournament is going to be in the 2nd half of January with a specific date that will have to wait depending on what inside venue I can secure and when.

Later this week I will post the thread - but for the New Year I think it's time we took another look at some Old Formats... Wink

See you soon!
