Season 9: Results of pre-qualifiers
Interesting situation has happened in the pre-qualifiers. The candidates were supposed to post 4 report cards over the 4 days of qualifications. Some bonuses were applied and then the sum of the best 3 scores made the final ranking. The rule however was that at least two report cards were required over the 4 days of pre-qualifiers.
A player named @ghostlybg topped the ranking table with a score of 123. However, they did all their steps on a single day (!) and didn't care to post reports for the other days. Thus, failing to produce at least two reports, @ghostlybg has been disqualified. So close - if @ghostlybg had just published a dummy report with 1000 steps, they would have advanced to the Champions League Eliminations...
The top 8 advance to Champions League Eliminations, where they will face the seeded players.
Players who finished in positions 9-24 will play in Consolation Cup Eliminations.
The remaining four players (@pinkhub, @notak, @chichi18, @trezzahn) will have to wait for Season 10 for another chance. And I can reveal here a little secret. Season 10 will be a special one - 10th Jubilee and 1 year Anniversary. More players will participate in the main phase (52 instead of 32) and there will be an exciting change to the format. More on this later on.
