Round 2 of Eliminations for Season 6

Authored by @MAcFiT


Today's update is about the second round of eliminations for Season 6. Before we go there, I'd like to bring up the matter of W/O.

In Round 1 we had a situation in which both players in a pair - @liftslikealady and @griega didn't post their reports, so I have declared a "two-sided W/O". Since @griega had been slightly better in the first leg, she got the slot in Round 2.

Both have contacted me afterwards, citing life/technical difficulties with posting. @liftslikealady has provided a proof of activity ("Activity History" screenshot from @actifit App). @griega has replied that her score was lower and conceded the win to her oponent. I'd like to single out @griega here and applaud for her Fair Play.

As result, @liftslikealady will replace @griega in Round 2 of Consolation Cup qualifiers.

@aliveprojects Eliminations Award

The best player eliminated in Round 2 of Consolation Cup qualifiers, will receive a special prize sponsored by @aliveprojects - 100 ALIVE. It will be decided by total score across both rounds of qualifiers.

Standings after the fist round:


the two players with "bye's" will have their Round 2 score doubled for the sake of deciding the Award.

Players exempted from Eliminations

The following players got directly into group phase of Season 6 Champions League:

@merthin - Defending Champion (DC)
@grecki-bazar-ewy - Consolation Cup Winner (CC)
@bucipuci - @poliac League One Winner (L1)
@manuvert - top ranked (R1)
@masoom - second highest ranked (R2)
@browery - third highest ranked (R3)

They will be placed in Groups in the following way ("serpentine" scheme works here):

Gr. A: DC, Q2, Q3, LL
Gr. B: CC, Q1, Q4, Q9
Gr. C: L1, R3, Q5, Q8
Gr. D: R1, R2, Q6, Q7


  • Q1..Q9 are 9 winners of Round 2 of Champions League qualifiers, sorted in descending order by their aggregate score in that round (2 matches)

If a player receives W/O in their favor, the score for deciding the seeding will be their actual score as per step count, not "30:0"

  • LL is the Lucky Loser of Round 2 (ie. player who has the highest aggregate score among those who lost their Round 2 duels)

Lucky Loser goes arbitrarily into Gr. A, so that they have a chance to prove their worth against the Defending Champion :-)

Based on the setup, we can already announce hit matches in the group phase:

@grecki-bazar-ewy (group B) and @merthin (group A) have to wait until qualifiers are complete to learn who their rivals are going to be.
