The Deathlist Cup

Recommended Posts

Blimey, with 10 days left of the Cup, Deadsox has so far proved quite good at shutting down opponents.

I think Deadsox is a vastly underrated dead pooler. He made the top 20 every year since 2012, and have top ten performances in 2007, 2009, and 2015. He's not new at this, and he's pretty good.

I have only just now found out that Deadsox is Deceased Hose from the DDP.

Gee whiz, Joey, thanks (blush).

Have to chuckle, my entire team from Round 1 are all still alive.

 

And ready to take the field come January 2018 again.

8 hours left of the Deathlist Cup.

 

Death Impends leaving his traditional last minute comeback to the last, I see.

Unless there happens to be a surprise deluge in the next 12 minutes, I'd like to congratulate deadsox on his win. :)

That's right, Paddington: the Cup has been hammered shut. Lots of people tried, and failed, and we have the winner of our first ever Deathlist Cup!

The crowds are excited!

 

 

Congratulations Deadsox, our 2017 Deathlist Cup winner!

Soup Dragon hands over the Cup.

 

 

Now, everyone congratulate the winner. May he forever go down in Deathlist history as the winner of a Deathlist game.

 

 

Right, done. Thanks! It's been a blast.

Congrats to Deadsox on a spectacular win in the first ever Deathlist Cup. :party::clap:

 

At the end of March, few expected him to make it far after a 0-0 draw with Pedro.

 

But he went on to beat the three best deadpoolers on these forums. Spade, followed by DDT, and now DI. 

 

Condolences to DI on his loss. You played very, very well. I believe you were the only Cup player to ever reach double digits.

 

Good luck to all my fellow competitors next time, see you in February. Hopefully I'll do better than this time around. :P

A hearty congrats to deadsox on his impressive underdog campaign. :clap:And as it turns out, the Diane Torr predicament was irrelevant to the end result - even if she lasted another day, or were her death announced on the 1st, deadsox would still have prevailed.

 

Fun competition, hope to see it return next year. I liked having a pool besides Deathrace/Hare's that allowed you to utilize more eclectic, obscure names.

Congrats deadsox and indeed to all who played.

 

I had a great time sitting back for 6 months, now I'm running two pools! :facepalm:

I'm very excited to have won the first Deathlist Cup.  I just had a shot of scotch out of my skull shot glass (say that 3 times fast).  Thanks to msc for creating a format that gives everyone a chance and lets Lady Luck have a hand.  She certainly helped me (a bye, a coin flip after no hits, and then catching three more great players in lucky spots). 

Thanks to Pedro, Spade, DDT and Death Impends for your sportsmanship.  Thanks to everyone who competed.  Most of all, thanks to Emma Morano, Sasha Lakovic, Michelle Purchase, Paul van Zandvliet and especially Julia Perez for giving their all for the team.

 

I'm hoping that under the circumstances, I'll get a bye next year.

I believe it is a convention for champions to get byes in the first round (see the Champions League, FA Cup, and ignore the flaws). Of course, we don't know the numbers for 2018 yet: might be 32! Might be 0, of course.

 

Beating the big 3 of the forum back to back was an incredible achievement, and one I certainly didn't think was possible. A good way to crown our first champion, I think.

Proud to have gone out to Deadsox, Well done chap.

At least I give you a close run game (very tounge in cheek there)

Thanks Pedro.  You were the only opponent I didn't actually beat.  I'm lucky also that msc decided to do a best of 5 coin flips. If he had done only one (which I would have used) I would have lost.
