Week 1: News



Round 1 and Round 2 have been completed.
The Second week of the tournament begins now, this time slightly more accelerated than in the original schedule (where 2 rounds per week was planned). We will play round 3, 4 and 5 in the same week. (April 12 to April 19)
A bunch of players managed to play in advance a dozen of Round 3, 4 and 5 games so we have took this as reference to believe a player can play more than 4 games per week. This is also possible thanks the existence of the backup players.

Week 1: Best player performance

Between the Experts players:

IPB Image
Ecthelion

Bunito sux. Yet he destroyed Luxus's Elves with a 2-0 score, and got tied against the Men team lead by FarmerLau & Daryl. Almost lost 0-2 the 2v2, but Idream managed to kill Daryl before the Farmer slashes Ecthelion.

Against Elves 2-0



Against Men 1-1



IPB Image
FarmerLau

Farmer achieved a 3-1 winrate by playing only 2v2 with his faction mate from the Good Players, Daryl. They hold up the stomp of Ecthelions&Idream rageful Isengard in 2v2, tying with them, and managed to 2-0 against Gannicus&Shinoda's Mordor.

Against Mordor 2-0





IPB Image
Between the Challengers players:
IPB Image
GosPurePwnage

At this point Pure has managed to be Mordor's most valuable player between the 5 skill ranks, trough a tying score of 1-1 against Mustafa's dwarves and a 2-0 stomp against Sweet's men. However, we still remember his unpleasant behavior in the ingame chat during his games against
Word (sweet). This will, for sure, take him off some points in sportsmanship.

Against Men 2-0



Against Dwarves 1-1





IPB Image
Between the Good players:
IPB Image
Vito

Vito is known for spaming 1v1 cw with goblins, and this experience proved useful against Magiccz's elves (aka PoW Morta) with a clear 2-0 score. But this time he also proved to be a strong 2v2 player aswell. Half of his games were 2vs2 with Tyrion, with a score of 2-0 against Dwarves.
This way, Vito has managed to be one of the first players in getting 4-0 in this first week.

Against Elves 2-0



Against Dwarves 2-0





IPB Image
Between the Medium players:
IPB Image
Tiryon

The medium player bracket is sadly uncomplete, 2 of 6 encounters are missing. However, Tiryon completed all his games and holds the majority of wins in this first two rounds thanks his performance in 2v2 with NathanP against Elves (1-1), and with Vito against Dwarves (2-0) .

Against Elves 2-0





IPB Image
Between the Apprentice players:
IPB Image
Sakulnebur

Sakulnebur is suposedly IDreams brother. Right now he's covering Temptest. He managed to get a 4-0 winrate thanks the defeat of Glorfindel's Elves and Punisher''s Men on 1vs1.

Against Elves 2-0



Against Men 2-0



IPB Image
Morris

Morris is a belarus bus driver who intermitently play BFME2. Last time he played here, we were playing the betas of 1.09v1. However, rusty and not really being a 1v1 player, he proved to be one of two bests players of this first half bracket with a 2-0 score against Men's Punisher and Powerkartoffel's Dwarves.

Week 1: Most clear MatchUps



IPB Image
IPB Image Isengard vs Elves IPB Image

Isengard has destroyed Elves with a insane score of 8-2.
Patch developers were rather expecting Elves to show itself abusive against Isengard. Yet it is true, Elves are definetively "weaker" in general than 09v1, due the hero spam nerf. But elves were immediately compensated with a overhaul of all the faction upgrades & powers from the spellbook. But aparently, players either didn't manage to play the new elves properly, or the entire Elven team is over-ranked. We will see where elves end up at the end of the Round Robin.
Besides, it should be said that Isengard also received some big nerfs on its heroes. And not only that, in the spellbook aswell.
So the only thing that comes to mind is to congratulate Isengard Team for beating Elves and also becoming the first best faction during this mid-point.

IPB Image
Expert - Ecthelion (ecthelion)
Challenger - AnDy 3088346 | PoW_Clever 3271311
Good - iDream 8305935 | Break 1225719
Medium - Netput (7201707) | TaR_OrCrisT 1222584 | Gomez 2856438
Apprentice - Tempest 1205121 | Sakulnebur 9023979




IPB Image
IPB Image Goblins vs Dwarves IPB Image
Goblins has defeated the midgets with a pretty clear score of 7-3.
For relief of patch developers, worried about Dwarven buffs (Wagons, Dain, Undermine, Dwarf Richess), Goblins not only proved to remain being a worthy rival for them, but also its slayer.
However, since the start, Goblin team seemed to be the best, with a bunch of known names on each skill rank. An applause for their performance in 1v1 and 2v2.

IPB Image
Expert - [RECON]Halet (6731670)
Challenger - AoW_Nathan 1220375
Good - Vito 8292349
Medium - Tyrion (6768263) | Hhiruma 10590498
Apprentice - Otter 6716088




IPB Image
IPB Image Mordor vs Dwarves IPB Image
Besides being tied with a score of 4-4, this MU is worth mentioning as you can hear all around gameranger that either Dwarves > Mordor or that Mordor > Dwarves. This suposedly balanced score matches with patch developers expectatives.
However, credits will go to the Mordor Team.

Expert - Azog 9013588
Challenger - GosPure(Bilbo) 2834834

Week 1: Uncompleted games



IPB Image
2 games were scored as 0-0.
Pietor vs Scloud
Pietor vs Gomez/Netput

-Players were active but in different times of they day, not managing to syncronize considering the different timezones.
-They can optionally amend this games during this week, as a 0-0 score will have repercussions in the final scoreboard in the event of a possible even score.

IPB Image
2 games were scored as 1-0.
Halet vs Luxus
Halet vs Sauron

-Due a series of dodges, rule breaking & time wasting (both Sauron & Luxus swaped their factions which wasn't allowed) a 1-0 score was set for Halet.
-Players can amend this if they agree. It's up to Halet.

nice synthesis but i dont think that we can take any conclusions on patch balance, there are still big skill differences between players even at the same ranks

I know, indeed, by itself it doesn't say anything. But its a point of reference to combine with other stuff. (stuff that i haven't figured out, yet)

Yea this will always be the case. With 6 factions there will always be people saying x or y is not balanced but player preferences and skill are a big impact.

Don't forget maps either. Maps play a huge role in balance
