    So the inactivity last round was horrible. Ideally, it will be better this round because everyone in will have played matches last time. That's the idea anyway. Anyway, I decided that it would be anyone who actually won a match last round because hopefully it will bring some activity and it gives us a nice number, meaning that RNG gives us:

    Quarterfinals:

    Match 1:
    Brummi vs. Athenodoros

    Match 2:
    Eo Ut Mortus vs. Alphajolt

    Match 3:
    ginganinja vs. auramaster

    Match 4:
    Dogfish44 vs. Curtains



    Semifinals:

    Match One:
    Athenodoros vs. Eo Ut Mortus

    Match Two:
    ginganinja vs. Curtains




    Finals:
    Athenodoros vs. Curtains

    I'm sorry for not participating more; correspondence chess takes an extremely long time...

    Why do I get paired with Eo again? Anyway, this shouldn't take too long.

    Sorry for holding up this round. AlphaJolt was on a trip iirc so we couldn't really get this completed earlier. Hopefully we can get this done today; if not, requesting a short extension seeing as we are already in contact.

    Next round is up. You've got two weeks this time because of the extra match that has to be played.

    I beat AlphaJolt, gg. Athenodros, I'm eumortus on redhotpawn (I prefer there) and eoutmortus on chess.com if you want to start our game on either of those sites.
