Welcome Facta Cuppers!

If you are checking your Facta Cup scores, checking the bracket, or just checking to see if I can add, you are probably in the right place.

  • Please play as promptly as possible. I'm going to send challenges as close to the same time dailies are sent as possible.  Everything will be manual though, so might take a bit to get them all out.
  • After seeding round (sent by JMK), everything will be send as a regular challenge by me. I can't send special brainoffs, so click at your own risk!
  • 32 size draw! No facta plate! Will be a bracket for R32 losers, R16 losers, and placement matches for Quarterfinalists. 
  • If you can't find your brainoff, just click your name in the bracket. Should come up! I know it is a bit confusing with all the random brainoffs from me floating around.

  • We're underway, facters! Good luck everyone. As JMK said in the sign up thread, the qualifying round will end after the 6th brainoff expires. 
  • Remember: if you get a brainoff from me, it is for the Facta Cup! I am unable to rename the brainoffs I send.  
  • Qualifying done. R32, R16, QFs completed.
  • Gold semifinals live.  Silver final live. Bronze draw complete. Placements live.To join me in the bleachers, simply click the match you want to watch in the draw!

Scores are being collected for the Qualifying Round! A couple didn't play so the draw is going to be very interesting. Draw will be made and round of 32 challenges will be sent shortly. The top 8 seeds have earned byes through to the round of 16.

Those who didn't play the qualifying really have a chance to wreak havoc on the draw, so if that is you, you still are in it!

Congrats to Nemesis - in pole position after missing barely a handful of questions in the Qualies.

Qualifying round scores final, Gold draw complete.  Interesting indeed! Sending out the R32 brainoffs now, good luck all. Remember they will come from me as regular challenges! Any challenge from me this week is a Facta Cup challenge :)

Round of 32 matches are live! You have 24 hours to complete. The names in the draw above should be clickable links to all matches. Just click on your name if you can't find your brainoff.

Good luck everybody!  If you lose R32, don't worry - you still have a chance to win the bronze bracket.

2 left to finish their R32 matches. Will send R16 and Bronze Quarterfinal matches when they finish. They have about 12 hours left.

Lots of upsets so far! Kudos to Helen for being the first one to win her R32 match, and to sally for taking out JMK with a great performance. Greens with the highest score in the 1st round so far. 

Also props to rmcmanus: your brain must have Grinchlike qualities, to have shrunk then grown so quickly!

Bronze draw shaping up very nicely, some very strong facters will be going for the (still unrevealed) bronze trophy.

As the site was down for a few hours, will give a few extra hours for this round to be completed. 

I think the brainoff between Seve and Helen may have gotten messed up somehow, looks like someone tried to play right before the site hiccup, but no score was collected. I can send another brainoff to these two.

The other challenges appear to be Ok, besides the one I accidentally sent to Nem and Tally, LOL.

Still quite a few left to finish today's round of brainoffs.  I'd imagine the site hiccup last night has a lot to do with that. I'm going to extend the time for this round until as close to 0800 Facta/London time as possible (when the daily brainoffs are sent). Don't want to extend much further than that in the interest of keeping a gap between the Facta Cup and the Decathlon next week.

With the outage 3 of the challenges were not completed.  Sorry to those that did play, but it is only fair for me to resend the challenges so both people get the chance to play. 

Please play as quickly as possible so we can finish this weekend :)

Thanks a lot facters!

Have sent the matches that I can for this round.  I'm pretty impressed that only one match from the previous round still hasn't been played. Apologies to anyone adversely affected by the outage. 

Sportsmanship Award - Has to go to Lindy this time.  Almost a perfect score on a brainoff that didn't count due to the outage, and still wished their opponent luck on the next one.

LOL @ rmcmanus. I called this a trial on purpose! I recommend to all to keep checking the brackets, as even after losing you may still be alive. For instance, you are STILL not knocked out rmcmanus, you merely have migrated into the silver draw.

Thanks to pretty prompt playing from everyone we are in the quarterfinal stage of the main and silver draws. The first silverbronzeware of the tournament will be awarded soon! Allan R. Matthes and Bowler have made it into the Bronze final.  Fitting for these two veterans to be duking it out!

I would love to keep this round under 24 hours, we can still get done before the decathlon if all goes smoothly from here on out.

Good luck to everybody still alive, and big thanks to everybody joining me in the bleachers (to borrow a term from out resident clucker)!

You guys are awesome. Very prompt playing since the outage! Silver final  live now, click the link to watch the match. Gripweed and shortbreadforme27 fighting it out in that one, should be an epic battle between the two veterans.

And we have a winner! Saguingoira takes the first Factacular Cup in this format. He had an amazing run through the Gold Bracket with an average score over 2000. Ruby came up just short in the final, was faster than Sag but missed 2 questions to his one. Great final played by both!

All the main draws are complete, just a couple placement matches to be finished. Congrats to Gripweed9 for winning the Silver bracket! He and Shortbreadforme27 probably had the toughest draws in the entire tournament. Well done on both for making it to the Silver final, and kudos on a well played match.

Big kudos have to go to JMK for answering my bevy of questions with patience and promptness no matter how inane the query! 

Java also saved me from a couple possible meltdowns.
