  • Imagine they get to the semi finals. One of them wins. the other wins their first semi final game of three. Pog champs people are freaking out. They call in the big guns. Looks they sub hikaru in for whoever they’re playing. He is a streamer after all. But plot twist, hikaru is sympathetic. He throws for content. Ludwig and Charlie meet in the final game, don’t make any moves, and walk into the sunset holding hands. I think I’ve got the plot of the next Disney movie folks.

  • I think it would be more fair for tiebreakers to be 5 min no increment. In 3min blitz you have to know the line to a t. As much as these players improved they aren't advanced players. Half the time as a normal game is plenty narrow for just enough time to think and avoid errors.
