Tournament of Shame III – Duck Game – Heat #1 Results

Before I announce the results, the listings and statistics may seem a bit minimal when compared to the previous ToS when it comes to percentages, but if something changes, I’ll work it in.  Until then, the results will be showing current points, kills, and deaths (suicides included).

That being said, here are the results for Heat #1 of the Duck Game ToS.  Current image is up for discussions, so please feel free to offer any feedback!

So I’d have to say that, even though this is Heat #1, it started off extremely entertaining and strong!  A comment made by Rob (AlpacaPatrol) early was that he felt that these may be short videos, but 17 minutes later, that assumption has basically gone out the window.  In fact, Rob was one of the strongest ones coming out the gate, having kills in the double digits before anyone else.  He slowed down in the later matches, but I still feel that he is one to actually watch out for in this tournament.  Northernlion seems as strong as ever and has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with, with 2 extra points over the minimum needed to win and 2 short of the 20 deaths marker.  Let’s not also forget the fact he was 4 points ahead of second, making it difficult for Rob to sneak in and grab the spot, and with a whopping 29 kills, 7 more than both Rob and BaerTaffy.  Speaking of Baer, his early game was not the greatest, but he made a great comeback in the later half of the game, even though he wasn’t able to rack on the points and holds the highest amount of deaths by 1.  He managed to make up for that by matching the same amount of kills as Rob.  Give him another game and I feel he’ll perform much better.  Mathas struggled, to say the least.  With only 8 kills and 24 deaths, he never fully managed to make anything happen.  I do agree for one of his deaths was a little unbelievable in where he was just in range of the grenade explosion, even though the animation doesn’t show the range in detail.  Maybe it just grazed him, but it was a very silly death.  Mathas just needs to focus and bring his A game in future heats if he is looking to stand against the top performances shown today.

The hype is real, folks!  With only Heat #1 out of the way, it can only get better once it comes close to the Finals where games matter the most.  Can’t wait to see how Dan and Nick (RockLeeSmile) do in the upcoming matches.

    I’m not even joking when I say reading these analysis posts are almost as enjoyable to me as the tournament itself.

    Actually I can object that the grenade did hit Mathas but it was like the shrapnel effect. If u at 2:08 at the second the explosion happens, you see white lines exuding from the exploding grenade representing shrapnel. Moving outward and hitting Mathas.

    By that look at it in more detail by lowering the speed of the video.

    Here’s an image showing the exact moment Mathas getting hit by the thin line of death thats suppose to represent the shrapnel of the grenade hitting Mathas’ body.

    Don’t let Mathas talk you into thinking his loses are unbelievable.

      Oh yeah, Kirbo. I totally got that it was the shrapnel. Mathas just happened to be too close to the actual hit box of the explosion. Thanks for the image, though! Really helps when something may be amiss.
