Now as all puny humans know, Loki is god.
Brendon Watson is the most experienced tournament organiser in Melbourne, and he was the tournament director behind Shadowloo Showdown 2012, a monster of a tournament, and quite frankly, a humongous logistical nightmare!
How was the tournament organised? Brackets? Pool seedings? Staff and game scheduling? How did he get the magic numbers for setups and bracket sizes?
If you wanna get the inside scoop of how the tournament side of Shadowloo Showdown was planned and organised, be sure to check out Loki’s guest article on Ziggy’s Bracketed series:
I’ll be honest. I am a dumb person. I get my tiny brain mixed all up into tangled vermicelli when Loki and Spoony come up to me and say xx number of players with xx number of setups produces xx number of matches which means we need xx number of hours so divide total number of players by xx… So I’m really grateful that Loki wrote down all the math behind everything so a dumb person like me could reread the numbers section four or five times before I finally understood everything.
I have the greatest respect and gratitude for what Loki has done for the Melb FGC, so give his article a read, it will definitely make you smarter.
It worked even on me.
