Istanbul, not Constantinople.

Once again, I find myself watching a far flung regional seven time zones forward.
Istanbul

They are in the Quarter Finals, and again, it is a rudimentary regional.
It has the drama of any competition.
It also has pretty good production values.

So cool that the students in the stands show the same spirit and enthusiasm that we see at any competition.

Make it Loud around the globe.

Re: Istanbul, not Constantinople.

Does anyone know why 3646 is listed as the second seed, but is not in the eliminations bracket?

I’m curious about that as well. It’s weird that a chairmans finalist who ranked second at the event wasn’t in elims at all and didn’t win an award.

Looking at the stream, they withdrew from the tournament at the end of qualifications, likely due to apparent robot issues during the last 60 seconds of Q74.

Re: Istanbul, not Constantinople.

Why would a rank 2 tell a rank 24 (picked 12th) to throw a match? Wouldn't you be far more concerned about your #1 pick?

If you're #2 you have options for your first pick, when it rubber bands back you start to run out of options for your second pick. Definitely not saying they were in the right because this is why C03 exists.

If you truly believe something like this took place, you should report it to FIRST with as much evidence as you can, but doing it on Chief is not the place to do it, IMO.

Thank you for this post. We all know that nobody would lie on the internet(/s), but misinformation, rumor, bias, personal feelings, and good intentions are capable of landing very far off the mark sometimes. It is important to always remember this.

Now I personally have no idea what happened and while I know where my opinion will lay if this is true, I do not know for certain what did happen and will refrain from the airing of speculation until we get additional information.

Integra never won Chairman's at the Turkish Off-Season. 2905 won it the first and second times, 6429 won it the third time.
