Lessons learned really. I had no way to know there was an error as they only posted match ups not standings.
So I go into the announcements being like okay I'm 5-1 I'm in for sure.
They didn't use the normal score sheets just little slips with two names and a place for points. So there was no check here you won, modified lost to ensure things. The scores got written down wrong in my third game, and so I was playing lower ranked guys.
Even though I had won 5 games it was against lower ranked players, so what do you do? The TOs had to make a hard decision that would make someone unhappy and it ended up being me. In fairness while I was super pissed about the result I entirely agree with their decision looking back a bit removed now.
Even my third round opponent told the TOs of the error. But what was done was done. They weren't going to make things right by doing something wrong again. They did the right thing.
All of this was compounded by my only having a basic understanding of French. I tried but a combo of being tired and people speaking quickly I never heard them say anything that would have fixed the situation.
Further to the credit of how it was handled, the TOs decided to give me the bonus dice set. They didn't have to do it but they understood I was upset and had a case, they did what I've Always seen and loved about this community, they were dudes about it.
As for what I was flying I was the super Anglo who was flying Dengar Manaroo ( I called it star crossed lovers rather than dengaroo and as soon as I did my wife let me go to the tournament. I told her it was a tribute to our love).
All of my opponents were great and the day was a ton of fun with a lot of variety.
