FIRMAMENT is GRAND CHAMPION

Postby Logress » Tue Dec 21, 2010 5:22 pm

Firmament defeated FischerChew in a match so exciting, that if I described it to you, you'd be so jealous that you didn't see it with your own eyes that you'd hate me forever. So I'll spare that situation, and post the replay tomorrow instead.

Firmament is now officially the Grand Champion of English Alteil, and in addition to the glory and riches, (and a little Icon that will sit next to his name for a year with a gold crown on it,) he gets to face off against the Japanese Champion to decide the WORLD CHAMPION.

So here's the good news, it looks like the Japanese have agreed to holding the match on our server with our cards! The bad news is that it's going to be in March, and the Japanese champion will be playing on our servers --EVERY DAY-- until then to learn our game. He may have already started. Let the paranoia begin!

As much as I appreciate a free win for the US this seems like an overwhelming advantage. Isn't a better way to have alternating rulesets games with a win by 2 clause. Admittedly I expect such a match to be very long with each player constantly winning on their home turf but that says something about how large I think home ruleset advantage is.

Congratulations! Firmament played very well.

Ron is the Japanese champion. (incidentally, this is the word you call when you win in riichi mahjong xD) He is ridiculously skilled - Alteil II has so many more skills and mechanics in their game, and mastering/knowing them all requires a ton of work.

Perhaps our game may seem too limiting - then again, it may be easier. Who knows. I'm wondering if Ron knows english - reading the game mechanics will take a lot of time if not...

This will be a very interesting final match.

I think there is no way that he would need to spend a dime on this game just to battle firmament, so it should be safe to say that he should have 3x every single card including set8 for free.

He might have even been one of the set8 testers for all we know.


btw where is the finals replay ;loading
