Diamond Quest 59!

Post by Goldglo » Mon Oct 05, 2009 6:48 pm

It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen!

Last cycle, we were in the midst of an IG War - there's nothing quite as exciting this time around, except that Kheldar's coming dangerously close to matching Matt Simon's record as Diamond holder. Can he win another one this time around and take a step closer to history?

The next DQ will take place on Saturday October 24th, beginning at 7:00pm by the Eastern Clock. Come on out and support your favorite brawler, or throw pretzels and heckle them all!

We're looking forward to seeing a lot of you Emeralds, Opals, and Diamond (and at least a truckload of spectators)! Particpants should pre-register with Matt or Kheldar if at all possible.

We look forward to seeing you there!

It'd be great to have more than 3 duelers in this tournament! If you can be there, be there!

Saturday, October 24, 2009 saw six of the Outback's Emeralds come together for the 59th Diamond Quest. This cycle a new Diamond would be crowned because Kheld could not defend his title. Because of the numbers of entrants, a round robin format was used. Dueling for the title were Matt Simon, Ria Graziano, Pslyder, Sartan, Rakeesh and Jake Thrash.

Round one saw Ria against Matt, Psly versus Sartan and Rak duke it out with Jake. In what would be a really strange event, all duels ran the same amount of rounds(10) and ended with the same score(5-3). Victors in this round were Ria, Sartan and Jake.

Round two(called by Tass) had Matt against Jake, Psly versus Rak, and Ria going against Sar. Winners were Psly, Ria and Jake. After two rounds, Ria and Jake were 2-0, Psly and Sar stood at 1-1 and Matt and Rak at 0-2.


Round three(also called by Tass) saw Matt and Rak face off, Jake and Sar, and Psly against Ria. Victors were Ria, Sar and Rak. After three, Ria reamined the only undefeated dueler at 3-0, Jake and Sar stood at 2-1, Psly and Rak were at 1-2 and Matt ened up at 0-3.

Round four had the quickest and only shutout of the Quest. Jake took five rounds to defeat Psly, Ria was handed her first loss by Rak in eight rounds and Matt came from behind to overtake Sar in ten rounds. Ria and Jake were at 3-1, Sar and Rak at 2-2 and Matt and Psly at 1-3.

The last and final round would decide the final standings and the winner of the Quest as Jake and Ria faced each other. The other rings had Matt going against Psly and Sar versus Rak.

Matt and Psly began slow then it seesawed back and forth until round six. Tied at 3 all, Matt scored two unanswered points to win in eight, 5-3. Sar started off scoring then stalled for the next two round before scoring in the fourth to lead 2-0. Rak scored his only point in the next round before allowing Sar then next three to take this duel 5-1 in eight rounds.

Ria and Jake faced off to see who would become the 59th Diamond. This was also a seesaw battle as Jake scored first before Ria tied it in the next. Jake scored in the next two rounds before Ria put a halt to it, claiming two unanswered points to tie the duel at 3 all in round six. Jake took Ria down next go round, Ria dodged to tie before Jake caught the fancy leaping Ria with a chop to claim the title.

Final standings:Jake, 4-1: Ria and Sar, 3-2: Matt and Rak, 2-3: Psly, 1-4.

Congratulations to Jake, the Outback's 59th Diamond, and to the other five for some great duels.
