Post [ZB8]ZBVIII Team Champions
Official statement from the Zlurpee Corp.

It has come to our attention that for the first time since, ZBV an award was awarded the wrong person(s).

The Best Painted bonus was not calculated into the final team standings. Had it been the 'Eh' Team would have been the overall team winners. With the runner up in sportsmanship and best painted on their side they were deserving champions and we apologize for this mistake. We will be having certificates made for you and contact you about some prizes we can send your way.

But we have decided that it will go down in the history books as a Co-Championship with Legion of Boom. They had the highest game points, before bonuses and were awarded the crown at the tournament. So rather then strip them of their title they will share it with the Canadians. We hope everyone is satisfied with this judgement.

As the polite neighbours to the north, we are completely happy with this decision from our gracious hosts to the south. :cheers::

Once I heard Alex had won best appearance I knew we had a good chance to take the best team award - but I thought I heard that LoB had 2 players on top tables final round which would've evened out the bonus points and clearly indicated they had higher game points than us so I thought little of it. We have zero issues with being co-champions with the Legion of Boom - I know Hickling was impressed both skill/sportsmanship wise with both LoB opponents he had and none of us want titles (or anything else for that matter!) stripped away.

Is this the first time there has been co-champion teams?
:Champ! + :Champ!

Finally all joking and razzing aside - just wanted to let you know it didn't lessen the awesomeness of the weekend in the slightest!!!

Sorry, I probably should have said something - guess I had a canuck moment. :wink:
In future would that be your preference? (obviously only with a serious "appeal")

Unless the error was so bad that the person awarded the trophy really didn't deserve the Co honor of it.

I thought that was what the Mad Dawgs A team was minus the championship.
