At 40 players, our Fall Semester Middle School League was handily the biggest event Romancing The Stones has ever organized. More than anything, we want to express our gratitude to all 40 players who stuck with us and hung out for 6 rounds of Swiss. On our one-match-a-week schedule, that translates to spending a month and a half of your lives with us. That’s no small commitment, and we were thrilled to have all of you.
To the shame (if not surprise) of us all, Lorien Elleman took it down on Goblins! He may not be a Texan, but he’s a hell of a player.
The Fall Semester drove home to us the diversity and potential of the Middle School Format. Both the Top 8 and entire field looked quite different than either of our previous leagues, and the gameplay was great. While we’re taking a break from leagues as we enter the holiday season, Romancing The Stones will continue to support Middle School. This format rocks.
We want to give a special shoutout to community stalwart Nate Golia for his work on running our Twitch stream during the league. Because of the hours he put in, we were able to host matches on Twitch every Thursday, and had great viewership. Thanks, Nate, for going above and beyond the call!
You’ll be seeing more Goblin Lackeys, Pernicious Deeds, and Morphlings from us in 2021. In the meantime, see y’all for some Vintage in 2 weeks!
