    Updated: To POP attention: Please make Masters have T8, not T16. The First, the Second, the Third and the Fourth seeds dislike the idea of T16 plus it is far too much (as we only have 28 players so with T16, it will cover over 50% of the players) so T8 is enough, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH :(

    Right now is 9.40pm

    Please address this issue within 12 hours ;(


    This is the event coverage thread of the Australian National Championships.
    You will get some updates a couple of time during each day. It will be taken place over 2 days, with Saturday being the Swiss rounds and Sunday being the Top Cut.

    Right now is 7.40am - Saturday 3rd May. Keep it in mind that we are like 14 hours ahead of the East Coast Time Zone, 15 if in the Texas, 16 if in Mountain West and 17 if in Pacific.

    There will be some updates during the day, when any of the Australians able to post any.

    So from like less than 2 hours, my team will be heading out of the house - to the National Championships venue.

    That's all to be said, as I am just letting many of you know that the Australian National Championships is going to be on over the weekend.

    If those numbers are correct, then JRs is only a T2, SRs a T4 and MAs a T8.

    Hey guys.

    I am abusing the crap out of Plox with Blastoise delta. Haha. I went 4-1 and I am the third seed.

    The game I lost was due to time. And I made a few misplays. (I KO'd my own Pokemon? WTF?), but ultimatly, I lost it due to time. Haha.

    My final game was really really crappy. My opponent was a pretty uber cheater and a general **** wit. I got given a game loss because he LIED to the Judge and said I showed him my prizes. Which was BS. Funnily enough, he tried to attach 3 energies in ONE turn, oh yeah, he also tried to deckstack a heap. (He never showed when he mulliganed, he also grabbed 3 cards with Furret.) Anyway, I won the next game then donked him in sudden death. It was lol.

    Tomorow should be interesting. My first round is against last years Nationals 2nd placer. And he is using Mantine d/Raikou/Sableye CG/Latios GE... Should be reaaaaaalllyy crazy.

    Thanks for the praise, Anthoy and Z-man. Haha.

    Crewseefire out. :D.

    GL day 2 bro

    At the beginning of the day, it was announced that Juniors would be top 2, Seniors top 4, Masters top 8, which was reasonable with those numbers (Masters has 28, not 26, I believe). After a couple of rounds it was announced that this had been changed: Juniors top 4, Seniors top 8, Masters top 16. These numbers are farcical, 16 cut from 28 in particular. I asked the TO/HJ why the change had occurred, since POP tournament operation procedures suggest that top 16 should not come into effect until there are at least 46 players. I was told not to question the decision, and that some of the players had asked for a top 16 so it had been changed.

    Is it now acceptable for a TO to change the top cut when a few players whine because they're scared they won't make the top 8?

    (I must admit my interest in this - I'm second after Swiss and will be extremely annoyed should I lose in the first round of top cut.)

    Oh, for the record, I'm playing Magkiss, and my matchups today were: Blastoise 2-1, Magmortar/Blaziken 1-1 sudden death 1-0, Rayquaza ex d/Raichu 2-0, Empalkia 2-0 and Plox 0-2.

    lol the whole tournament was legit except for the fact that we have MD pre-release way before its release, and changing of the top 2, top 4, top 8 ...to Top 4, Top 8, Top 16
