Last weekend (Nov 9-10), the KARDS World Championship 2019 Tournament was heading full steam into round two and three with tough matches between the champions.

This first official KARDS Championship Tournament is the culmination of a two month long process to find the best players and to determine the four finalists which will be flown to Iceland for the grand finale.

As a single-elimination tournament, every single match counts! We saw intense matches in round two and three of the tournament, both featuring best-of-five series. The field was close together already with only 59 player remaining at start of round 2.

Results of round 2 + 3
16 champions remain in the World Championship Tournament after this weekend!

Here are the champions that will compete next weekend to reach the finals:
  • Orbital_Armada vs Drogear
  • top lad vs SaunaCat
  • Maestro vs Gearbot
  • tedimi vs OnlyInDeath
  • D13 vs Ahri
  • GKZhukov vs Hisendam
  • Fenrir vs Cybernetic
  • GARRRODRIVE vs JKing 7
Check out the full tournament brackets (courtesy of The Big Bob Adis).

Surprises
Highly anticipated matches were those with the winners of the previous seasons and the highest ranked players such as:
  • Gearbot (Winner Season 7)
  • Cybernetic (Winner Season 6, Top-5 Season 7)
  • Drogear (Top-5 Season 7)
There are, of course, many more strong players - we can mention only a few here. Keep in mind, every participant is one of the top players in KARDS!

Above mentioned champions scored all victories, but not without struggle! Drogear, for example had to go over all five matches in the series.

The biggest upsets so far are kov losing 0-3 against JKing7 and tedimi winning 3-1 against Spooz.

Thrilling matches
The fastest match lasted only 1 minute and 10 seconds. It was fought between Ser Armory and gabo (Gabo won with his tournament deck 1 vs Ser Armory with his tournament deck 2).

The longest match required 17 minutes and 24 seconds. Vimesey and kesvan battled and gave no quarter! In the ned, kesvan won this match with his tournament deck 2 against Vimesey who used his tournament deck 1.

Have a look at the {HIVATKOZÁS TÖRÖLVE}.

The longest series of matches was fought by Xopy and top lad: Their three matches lasted a total of 54 minutes and saw top lad as winner! And even though Xopy was a bit disappointed by the outcome (after all, everything was still open after the 2:2), he was good sports and congratulated top lad.

Of course other matches were also intense! Have a look at tournament footage from Cybernetic vs Mantequilla and Cybernetic vs Saltlesf.

Stats and insights
Same as with round 1 before, we have also general insight from round 2 and 3. The following graphs are a feast for the analysts amongst us.

The first graph shows the popularity of the nations, how often they are selected as main nation during the tournament and how often they appear in any of the decks played.


Japan was the most popular nation in terms of overall use. Soviet Union was the least popular option as main nation.

The second graph shows the deck combinations played and their win-ratio:


Interesting:
  • The most popular deck in the first round was - again - a Britain / Japan deck with an average win-ratio of 55%.
  • The least popular deck played was Soviet / Britain with a win-ratio of 0%. Same as in round 1.
  • The most successful deck, even though unpopular, was a Germany / Soviet combination with 68% success.
  • USA / Germany decks were not played at all.

Next weekend: The final push!
This were the second and third rounds of the KARDS World Championship 2019 Tournament. The following rounds will take part on November 16-17.

Then, we will see the most intense action as everyone will fight to reach the finals and a sponsored flight to Iceland (plus accommodation). Only four will reach the finals!

After an exciting first weekend, the KARDS World Championship continues this weekend with round 2 and 3 when the 59 remaining champions fight for fame and glory (and survival).

This Saturday and Sunday (Nov 9 - 10), the champions will fight in a best-of-five series of matches. If they win, they proceed to the next round. If they lose, they are out.

Pairings for Round 2 and 3
The tournament matches of round 2 and 3 will start at 19:00 UTC on Saturday and Sunday.

Have a look at the upcoming matches and the pairings for round 2:


The pairings for round 3 are dependent on the results of Round 2 and are as following:


Tournament decks and submission deadline
Similar to round 1, the contestants must submit between one and three decks. During the tournament, the contestants can use only those decks. The deadline for deck submission is end of this Thursday (Nov 7) at 23'59'59 UTC.

Decks are submitted by simply naming the deck EXACTLY like the following terms in English:
Tournament deck 1
Tournament deck 2
Tournament deck 3

After the deadline, those decks will be locked (they cannot be changed) for the weekend starting Friday and ending early Monday. Any contestant without a valid tournament deck available during the weekend will be disqualified.

To increase fairness and prevent unfair underhand tactics (like bribing opponents to reveal decks being used), we will publish all tournament decks before the tournament starts.

Last weekend (Nov 2-3), the KARDS World Championship 2019 Tournament kicked off with 128 players competing in the first round.

This first official KARDS Championship Tournament is the culmination of a two month long process to find the best players and to determine the four finalists which will be flown to Iceland for the grand finale.

As a 128-player, single-elimination tournament, every single match counts now. We saw fierce fighting in this first round of the tournament featuring a best of three series of matches. Already, we have several upsets and surprises!

Round one surprises
Highly anticipated matches were those with the winners of the previous seasons and the highest ranked players such as:
  • Gearbot (Winner Season 7)
  • Cybernetic (Winner Season 6, Top-5 Season 7)
  • Darkness (Winner Season 5, Top-10 Season 7)
  • ROY1380 (Winner Season 4, Top-5 Season 7)
  • Drogear (Top-5 Season 7)
  • Nerka99 (Top-5 Season 7)
There are, of course, many more strong players - we can mention only a few here. Keep in mind, every participant is one of the top players in KARDS!

The biggest upsets so far are ROY1380 losing 2:1 against Mortimoose and Darkness not reaching the second round either.

Thrilling matches
Another nerve-wracking series was Spooz vs hannez (check out Spooz’ Twitch channel) where Spooz managed to turn around the initial 0:1 loss into a 2:1 victory. Spooz’ comment on this turnaround: Turned a 0:1 into a 2:1. I am still flashed from that pressure

The longest series was fought by Vimesey and Dawnbreaker (check out Vimesey’s Twitch channel): Their three matches lasted a total of 55 minutes and saw Vimesey as winner! Directly after these matches, Vimesey showed good sportsmanship and commented: it was cool and nervous

Of course other matches were also intense! Have a look at tournament footage from SaunaCat vs Zorglub and The Big Bob Adis vs Cobra Wizard.

Stats and insights
We have also general insight from this first round. The following graphs are a feast for the analysts amongst us.

The first graph shows the popularity of the nations, how often they are selected as main nation during the tournament and how often they appear in any of the decks played.


Japan was the most popular nation in terms of overall use. Germany was the least popular option as main nation. Food for thought!

The second graph shows the deck combinations played and their win-ratio:


Interesting:
  • The most popular deck in the first round was a Britain / Japan deck with an average win-ratio of 47%.
  • The least popular deck played was Soviet / Britain with a win-ratio of 0%.
  • The most successful deck, even though unpopular, was a Japan / USA combination with 100% success.
  • Britain / Germany and Germany / Britain decks were not played at all.

Next weekend: Intensified action
This was the first round of the KARDS World Championship 2019 Tournament. The following rounds will take part on November 9-10 and 16-17.

Then, we will see even fiercer matches with best-of-five series as we the stakes get higher!
