Archer 2v2 - July 15th - Review
Congratulations to AdamChen and samthecat43 of Team PureBow for taking home first place in today's 2v2 archer tournament!

Input:

Today's archer tournament kicked off our summer tournament season! I hope all who participated had as much fun as I did. It's been a while (almost 3 years!) since we've had an archer tournament, and it was an exciting one.

The tournament for the most part ran smoothly. The whole thing ran about two and half hours, which was even quicker than expected. Most issues were handled quickly and the event as a whole was a success. I'd like to give a huge thanks to our tournament staff for dedicating their time to help run tournaments for the community, these events couldn't happen without them.

There were a few issues, some preventable and some not. The no-shows in the first couple of rounds are always a concern as good attendance is crucial to hosting good tournaments. As always, we will continue to discuss how to reduce this issue. The crash that happens when players play 2v2 in 1.8 was a problem, however it was handled quite well - all users got a 5 minute grace period mid tournament to switch versions. Our developers are looking into this. There was also the unfortunate matchmaking bug where you were required to wait 15 minutes to join a new match. We ended up using alt accounts to work around this, but it is a known issue that the developers will be looking into further. As Archy mentioned in his post-tournament stream today, Badlion plans on appointing a team of developers who will be assigned to "Quality of Life" fixes on the server, like the matchmaking bug. The finals situation was unfortunate, but not something we could have prevented. Despite the tournament running fast, Team FrootLoops had to leave during the finals. While this was an unfortunate situation, we handled it the fairest way that we could by treating it as a forfeit and giving PureBow the win.

Without further ado, here is the full list of top 8 finishers and their respective prizes.

Interesting result and it certainly demonstrates that two lower rated players with good teamwork can beat teams in which both players are on the leaderboards.

It also shows that having every single tournament on NA is fair

Not going to argue against that as it's very good point. S15 will bring more tournaments which a larger majority will hopefully be hosted on EU

Sam was probably one of the best Archer plays in the early seasons, he's not a low rated player

the problem isn't getting leaderboards its just that players that normally would have lost to leaderboards players.

IMO getting on the leaderboards doesnt always mean you have a lot of skill
