So I played in a tournament at a local gaming event today. The tournament organizer showed up about 15 minutes before the event was supposed to start, which seemed like not enough time to me. 8 people showed up but one of the attendees got torqued off for some reason and left. When I have led tournaments if there is an even number of people I will not play, if there is an odd number I will step in to the the remaining even player. This TO decided to just not play. So with 7 people we played 3 rounds with someone sitting out each round. Very frustrating.
I flew Wedge, Luke, and Dutch Vander. Each with R3, proton toros, and swarm tactics so all three can engage at I6. I lost the first match by just a few point. I had to sit out the second match. I lost the third match by a few points as well. I took 4th place.
Im still pretty mad that the TO didn’t play to make it a proper bracket. He played his own card game, didn’t communicate well with the participants, didn’t tell us when to officially start each round. It was just not a great experience. $15 to play 2 rounds of X-Wibg feels like a ripoff to me.
