BABBAGES TOURNAMENT CONTESTED – DIFFERENCE ENGINES AT THE READY [Author: Arcadian Del Sol]

As reported by Adrenaline Vault yesterday, the results were protested specifically in a match where ranked incumbent “Blue” was upset by a player over seventy seeds his junior. Those who viewed the captured replay of the contest had varied opinions, but the presiding conclusion was that something was clearly amiss and Blue’s hits were clearly not a miss.

Much cavorting and debating ensued, turning various online communities into a verbal fragfest, until the official ruling was handed down from on high by the Lords of CPL. It was decided that due to some bugs in modifications used in the tournament (I still claim that a Difference Engine was somehow involved. Never buy a computer built in Europe, K.THKS.INSERTPUNCHCARDHERE), that “Blue” would be awarded the victory in that particular duel.

The ruling overturns the result of the match, but not the conclusion of the tournament itself. I blame this man entirely.
