A Statement Regarding Top 8 Placement

Post by imrahil327 »

As many of you have seen, the Strength of Schedule calculations for the players in contention for Top 8 at Worlds 2015 were done in a different manner than the method stated in the Tournament Guide. This was due to the ambiguous wording of the Guide itself, specifically the section regarding how to score a bye. Due to this, Angelo Consoli was ranked 11th, while using the method listed in the guide he should have been ranked 8th and advanced to Day 3. This error is entirely mine, as it is my duty to ensure that tournament procedures are clearly laid out for others to follow. I want to apologize profusely to Angelo for this error, as he should have had the opportunity to compete for his second World Championship. While we cannot turn back the clock to rectify this error, Angelo will be compensated by the PC for this error, and I sincerely hope that it has not soured his experience with the game, and that he will have the opportunity to compete in a future World Championship tournament. The document in question is being clarified, and updated Strength of Schedule instructions will be released as soon as possible.

I would have definitely prefered to play in Top8. Sadly the PC has no time machine. A compensation IMHO was the only fair way to handle the situation and I am glad the PC offered it to me.

It is a bad situation for every one involved. But I have no bad resentiments.

I hope though this will never happen again.

I'm afraid this was not part of the deal.

Alter the deal, and then let them pray that you don't alter it further :-D .

Doesn't a punishment have to be something they aren't used to in order to be effective?

Thanks!
