Overview

Into Glory Ride was our third foray into running a major tournament for the new Legend of the Five Rings LCG. 48 brave samurai appeared to cross swords and struggle for the sweet loot found in Battle for the Stronghold kits.  Attendance was greater than expected, given the overall doom & gloom associated with the game, but I fervently believe that this is a temporary slump until FFG gets its act together.

Congratulations to the Scorpion King, Akis Chotemis for  claiming the top spot undefeated. Glory!

Top 8 Elimination Bracket

The tournament was run with an experimental format, called the 3-6 special which is actually triple elimination swiss with a twist.  As a result there is no top-X bracket, but a tournament that finished on time and everybody went home without attracting spouse aggro :)
