Re: ILLIAC at Brown

I'd like to second what Emmett said. There probably would have been more interest if an announcement were posted more than 10 days before the tournament. Even with no announcement, it would still be good to let everyone know the date of the tournament well in advance. The main announcement's list of...

Re: ACF Nationals 2019 - 4/13-14/2019 - University of Pennsylvania

The plan is to play the prelim rounds and playoff rounds all on Saturday, but the last playoff tiebreaker may be moved to Sunday morning if Saturday is running late (the current conservative estimate has Saturday ending at 10 PM for teams in tiebreakers). If the move to Sunday does occur, would it ...

Re: ACF Nationals 2019 - 4/13-14/2019 - University of Pennsylvania

At the end of the round robin, only ties that concern title contention (overall, UG, or D2) will will be broken on a tiebreaker packet (Round 9); all other ties will be broken by PPG. Just to clarify, does "title contention" include the top 3 or just the top 1? Also, is there any way to see the fin...

Re: ACF Nationals 2019 - 4/13-14/2019 - University of Pennsylvania

The format for this year's Nationals has changed some from last year, so I wanted to provide a write-up of this year's format to clear up questions teams may have, and please post any outstanding questions in this thread or message me. Prelims Teams will be divided into 6 groups of 8, and play a li...

Re: 2019 NAQT ICT: April 6, Chicago

Note that merely being the site of an SCT (and providing rooms) is not sufficient to earn an autobid: The host program must, in general, provide the tournament director, organize the event, and take responsibility for ensuring the event is fully staffed. According to the hosts list, the TD for the ...

Re: SCT placement policies

2. If the prelims are a split-field round-robin followed by bracketed playoffs that do not repeat any opponents from the preliminary pools (formats marked "SFRR" for 15 through 24 teams on the approved SCT format list ), then teams are ranked within each playoff bracket by overall record. If the pr...

Re: 2019 NAQT SCT New England @Harvard (2/9/2019)

Right now for D2, MIT C and Williams A are listed as tied for fourth because they have the same record. But, they are only tied because MIT C lost a 3rd place game to Yale B and Williams A won a 5th place game against Bowdoin A. It seems like Harvard originally reported the stats correctly and NAQT ...

Re: 2019 NAQT Canada SCT at Queen's (9 Feb 2019)

I think there are some related issues. Miami-Ohio A and Notre Dame A are listed as tied for 5th in the Michigan site despite Miami-Ohio having a better record. It seems like the teams played a double round robin, then the two teams in question played each other twice (going 1-1), so by the policy, t...
