Last night we finished the tournament.
Apart from who played which random team, we thought it would be interesting to tally how each team did in the tournament, too. I kept a small notepad like a bookie and kept the stats. Here's how the teams were doing at the end of the Round Robin:
Team: wins | losses - total fans for the games they were involved in
Humans: 2|2 - 26,5,23,28
Elves: 1|1 - 11,20
Dwarves: 2|1 - 10,25,8
Orcs: 1|2 - 10,28,17
Scaven: 2|2 - 33,9,23,18
Chaos: 3|1 - 26,16,41,26
Two simultaneous 2-player, 4-week (three highlights and a random tournament) games formed the Finals.For these games, the Round Robin determined a pecking order for players to choose their teams instead of drawing at random. Winners proceeded to the Championship Bracket to play in the Blood Bowl for "Champion" and "Runner-Up", while the losers went to the Losers Bracket to compete for the the coveted "Waterboy" prize. Scores for the Finals are as follows:
Dwarves (41) vs Elves (11)
Scaven (34) vs Humans (19)
The Losers Bracket and Championship were very exciting, full (5 week) games, with the Championship coming down to the final fan count and the reveal being only 2 fans apart.
Loser's Bracket: Orcs (41) vs Chaos (32)
Championship: Dwarves (40) vs Scaven (38)
Final Tournament Statistics: (We're thinking of including a non-monetary "betting pool" for the next tournament as sort of a side/mini game for our spectators.)
Humans: 2|3 - 26,5,23,28, 19
Elves: 1|2 - 11,20,11
Dwarves: 4|1 - 10,25,8,41,40
Orcs: 2|2 - 10,28,17,41
Scaven: 3|3 - 33,9,23,18,34,38
Chaos: 3|2 - 26,16,41,26,32
All in all, it's fitting that the Dwarves took home the prize. The reigning Waterboy chose Orcs for the Loser's Bracket after seeing the running stats because he felt it was time for a comeback, and he certainly gave the Orcs their due. The Champion chose Dwarves for both the finals and the Championship, and now he chooses Dwarves for every Fantasy themed game we play because "Dwarves don't lose".
