Welcome to the first ever Bastion Blitz Binary Battle Royale. This will be a fast-paced, brawling type of competition.

Rules
I have randomly assigned everyone to a team of 2. Each team will have a player responsible for battles on the Lewy Sinistra pulsar and a player responsible for battles on the Prawy Dextra pulsar.

Each player will face every other player that is assigned to the same pulsar. So all the Lewy Sinistra players will play each other and all the Prawy Dextra players will play each other.

Teams will earn points based on how well they do against other teams. If they win both of their battles against another team, they earn 3 points. If they lose both games, they earn 0 points. And if the games are split, both teams earn 1 point.

After all games are played (or Jan 3rd, whichever occurs first), the team with the most points will be victorious. The victorious team will then break their temporary truce, for only 1 player may be truly victorious in this competition, and face each other in a single, deadly game. The winner will be crowned the Grand Victor and earn the right to be a Challenger in the main King of the Cosmos event.

Here are the teams for this event. The first player listed is responsible for Lewy Sinistra. The second player is responsible for Prawy Dextra.

1

FrUnitSeven
godotishere

2
DarthChronos
GodURmyall

3
ghuqu
CCKinnison

4
jhunsber
Quizmaster

5
ColinMacLeod
CrankyDay

6

Deegan
Vidarrr

7

TAGames
RillsAlThor

8

BCSBuck
Dusto

And just so it's a little easier to tell who you're supposed play against, here are the two pulsars and the players in each. Play everyone who is in the same pulsar list as you:

Lewy Sinistra
FrUnitSeven
DarthChronos
ghuqu
jhunsber
ColinMacLeod
Deegan
TAGames
BCSBuck

Prawy Dextra

godotishere
GodURmyall
CCKinnison
Quizmaster
CrankyDay
Vidarrr
RillsAlThor
Dusto

Report each of your game results here in this thread. You can see your team's progress and current standing on the tracker spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12_FA04VANed3UYCckVPH...

Unlike the normal King of the Cosmos Event, there is no Home or Away team. All expansions are open, and whoever makes the challenge first determines the expansions to be played with.

Good luck to all players!

And if someone doesn't have them all? Or is this addressed in normal KotC rules?

Dusto over Vidarrr. The dreaded 3-3 opening spelled my demise. I got some of the luck back by having the double Space Station sit around for a bonus 8 damage, but Battle Blob and friends was simply too much. Gg Dusto, sorry Deegan...

Accepted challenges from CCKinnison and Vidarrr and have sent challenges to the fleets around Prawy Dextra.

The King of the Cosmos is in the house, let's have some!

TAGames, I've got your back!

(looks quite ripe for stabbing)

GG Vidarrr. I thought I was in trouble when you dropped that early double space station, but that battle blob alone knocks them both out, whew!

So far in KoTC, the rule has been that if you can't accept a challenge because of expansions, you lose. That will extend here. However, if you can work it out with the players you are up against to play at lesser expansions (or just challenge first!) then that is fine too.

jhunsber over DarthChronos. GG! I decided to go pure damage after getting a few early scrappers. Definitely paid off. Those little yellow frigates really add up the damage when they combo and draw out.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion I gain strength. Through strength I gain power. Through power I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken. The force shall free me.

Vidarrr defeats CCKinnisson in a squeaker. War world was huge, but the key was when he bottomdecked Brain world on the last round. Close one, gg.

Vidarrr defeats RillsalThor and GodURmyall in two close games. Both were decided by me having and drawing just enough combat in the right time. Gg guys!
