The 2021 Deathlist Cup

Recommended Posts

I suggest that for the finals only, the 3rd tiebreaker be sudden death.  The first player from either team to die ends it.  In the case of earlier rounds, you need a winner at the end of the month but not for the finals.  It would be a shame to see a coin flip decide the champion.

Oh don’t worry, if there ever was a situation like that to occur I would allow it to go farther until the next, but as it stands we never had a situation like that before.

Aye, put me in the first round draw. Like the format of this (being a footy fan and all), though to date my shit performance has suggested I haven't a fucking clue. I live in hope of winning rounds by default or a bye, both of which I've managed in the past.

Am going to give it a pass this year. Hate to do so with such a quality pool, but I need the breather. Despite being fully aware the Cup has many casual participants, its head-to-head knockout nature means it's a bit harder for me psyche-wise to throw a bunch of casual names on a team and call it a day.

 

I shall watch from the sidelines with vested interest and will be intrigued to see who gets picked.

 

Does that mean that last years final can be counted as a true squonking - a defeat so bad that the recipient doesn't take part the next year ;).

I suppose a pure squonking (a golden squonking?) means that the person is beaten so badly that they leave the forum, never to be seen again, but this must be the next best thing!

 

I am only jesting of course. I'm sorry to see you wont be participating this year DI. Winning it last year was all the better for having beaten a giant such as yourself in the final. I am sure that even a half arsed effort this year would see you progress very far, but I understand why you would feel the need to give it your all. The cup tends to suck you in - you can start off with a casual team, but after a few rounds, the will to stay going means you end up spending far too much time scouring the depths of social media for any hint that some obscurity is on their way out. 

 

As for this years competition, count me in. And none of this "I'll make up the numbers" bullshit. I'm back, baby, and I'm back to win! If any of you fancy getting your grubby little mitts on the Cup, you will have to go through me first. Bring it on.....

You can.
I personally keep my lists pinned to the tree, making it outside information.

This is the bye list for this upcoming cup. Names with an asterisk by a name are those who have yet to enter the cup (so if you intend to enter in the cup, please state your intention to play, which I assume at least @Sir Creep intends to do). As it stands, the cup will end in June due to only 28 names entered in the cup. However, there is still time to enter in the cup so it's unlikely that it stays 32 or under. 

Oh, and regardless of how many people entered these folk will play in the cup in February regardless of how many enter in this time due to not competing in the 2020 cup:

Perhaps

Objection. If this guy's from the future that's an unfair advantage.

I doubt he would know what to do with his advantageous information.
