I had a bye for the qualifier round and I had to wait until round 2 started
I'm playing the @lava-heron account myself which is a delegated deck from @herons-unlimited. The first opponent seemed to have a lower level cards than the account I played. Rulesets of battle 1 were keep your distance and back to basics.
Sometimes it happens that someone only has 1 team on gold level, so I assumed facing higher cards in the second battle, which wasn't the case. So the first round for me was not hard to win.
Time for another round: round 3
This was the first battle, where I was facing higher cards than in the previous rounds.. But luckily, I won... Now I was getting all excited, because I was so close to winning a ticket for the finals.. Rulesets were broken arrows and reverse speed:
This time the rules were standard:
Oh my god, I won! Yay .. ticket for the finals secured, now let's see what happens next. Maybe I can even get into the top 4?
Round 4, to get into the top 4
I have made it to top 8 before since automation of @steemmonsters tournaments, but never into the top 4, meaning this was exciting. Before automation I've had a few first and second places, but I played my own account back then, and not a delegated account that has more maxed cards in there. The first battle had the ruleset keep your distance:
I won that one, time for the second battle with rulesets silenced summoners and rise of the common.
I won! So with that last win, I reached the top 4 of the tournament..
I was pretty sure at this point that I wasn't going to survive another round..
Unfortunately, I was right.. Although I won the first battle:
After that I got eaten alive, and ended 3rd place. For the first time since the tournaments were automated, so a double cool achievement. Now it's waiting until August 11th.. when the finals will be played.. Did you enter the Steemfest qualifier tournaments? And how did you do?
See you in the battlefield!
