The event was a success and it was so much fun for everyone. We organised four teams (Black Boo, Red Shy Guy, Blue Toad and Green Yoshi) where each had 4-5 team members; I was in Team Red Shy Guy. Quite a few people had to drop out last minute which wasn’t nice, others had to leave early as they had other commitments, but we still managed!
Each team had a team captain who chose which player to play each cup so each person had the chance to play 1 game of 4 maps. Then loints were awarded per game, 1st-10pts, 2nd-7, 3rd-3, 4th-1. It was harder that way and meant the leaderboard could change at any moment! So exhilarating!
At the end, there was a tie between two teams, Team Black Boo and Team Red Shy Guy! So we had one last battle where the MC decided the team captain from both teams should battle it out but I thought this was unfair since that had already decided the fate of the winners (my team captain played better), so I suggested that each team member played a map each from the selected cup (4 rounds, perfect) where players of similar calibre could race against each other. It also meant it was a team effort and involved everyone. This was a lot more challenging. I managed to get to first place from being 12th in the matter of seconds. That was a tough match!
Team Red Shy Guys! Woooooo! We hope to organise it again later this year because everyone really enjoyed their time racing with their fellow colleagues :) Which game that has a competition element would you suggest to play for approx 18 players?
