Mixed Tour 1 - Results and Spirit

Thanks to everyone for making the best of some very difficult weather down in Cardiff, and congratulations to Reading for their first Mixed Tour victory.

 

Full results can be seen on the schedule here (final placings on the 'Brackets' page): http://goo.gl/9300gj

Full spirit results are below - congratulations to York City Ultimate for a very impressive winning total!

 

The Sunday presented a number of problems as you know, and it has been very challenging to decide on results for some of the unplayed games. This is our fault - whilst the decision to communicate with teams about their options was made by the Tournament Rules Group following due process, we unfortunately did not communicate that decision consistently. Some teams (quite understandably) believed games would all be drawn and left the site; others believed that if they were ready to play, and the opponent didn't show, that they would win by default. The messages from the TD and from the UKU representatives walking the fields were sometimes contradictory, and so there really is no solution which is fair - both those who felt they could leave and those who felt they deserved a win by default have every right to their opinion and can point to an 'official' communication that gave that impression.

Many apologies for this. We are working on a robust communication protocol for announcements which will be in place fo Mixed Tour 2 in case any similar issues occur.

We have taken the decision to call all unplayed final games a draw, except where we were explicitly told that the two teams had agreed a forfeit one way or the other. We do not claim this is fair and understand that some teams may feel hard done by, but there really is no 'correct' solution and this is the one we have chosen.

Unplayed quarter- and semi-finals where a team advanced to the next round are generally considered as forfeits, simply because the next match had to exist; however, if there are any parts of the schedule where in fact four teams should have drawn - e.g. no games at all happened from semi-final onwards, and no teams agreed a forfeit - please do let us know and we'll make the adjustment. (Note: Pingu Jam's games on Sunday were all forfeited due to a lack of players, rather than the weather; these forfeits do stand of course.)

For seeding at MT2 we will use all the available information as best we can. So for example, if you tied with a team in the final rankings but beat them on the Saturday, we will certainly look to take that into account (and you should point out errors when the draft seeding/schedule is published if we do miss anything like that).

Again, apologies to those teams who were expecting a different finishing position. As mentioned, there is no solution which makes every team happy, and often both teams have an equally valid argument that they were 'in the right', so we have simply been forced to choose a set of results.
