The NEW Friday Face-Off #298

I realized as I was preparing this post that I have been doing the losers bracket entirely wrong. Instead of adding all of the losers into the losers bracket, I added them for the first batch of runs, but none of the subsequent matches. As a result, I am ending the losers bracket now as the difficulty of redoing the whole thing as I’m preparing to start fresh just isn’t worth the time or effort.

As such, here are the results for the overall competition followed by the results of the losers bracket that had come to pass up to this point.
