I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Peter Gurneau on his victory in the 2012 WBC Combat Commander Tournament. Peter bested Bob Jamelli in the final to finish the tournament with a perfect 6-0 record.

Overall the tournament had 43 players particpate with 64 total games played. It was an outstanding day of Combat Commandering as most games were tight with many coming right down to the wire with Secret Objectives determining the winner. It was a pleasure to GM this event and I look forward to doing so again next year.

Thank you, again, Bryan, for running a great tournament. My son and I both had a fantastic time.

My only constructive comment would be regarding the tournament format. With the number of participants, the fourth round is pretty much moot. The 3-0's will either be 4-0 or 3-1 with a strong opponents record tie-breaker score. Have you ever considered moving to three preliminary rounds with an eight player SE portion?

I always have a conflict on Wednesday. I just wonder if there's some way to create more flexibility in the scheduling. I guess whatever you choose won't work for some people.

Re: 2012 Combat Commander Tournament
Nick, I'm somewhat disastisfied with the tournament format as well. I like the Swiss Elim format but am troubled with the tie breaking criteria. I plan on deconstructing this and last year's tournament to see if I can determine a better advancement procedure. Whether the pre-lim rounds are 3 or 4 I'm still left with an issue of how to break ties to fill out the SE bracket after all the undefeated players advance. It is something I've pondered all week since the tournament. I have an idea in the hopper but as of yet unwilling to put it out publically.

I agree, the tie breaker is the source of the problem. Glad you have ideas to fix things.

Here's a panoramic photo of the action just as round 2 was about to begin.
