Jazz is back, and so is the Jazz Duelist's Challenge!
The multiplayer tournament for Jazz 2 players will return on Saturday, December 9th. Everybody is welcome to join and take a stab at the ladder, by playing duels and team games with players from all around the world!
Even if you're not interested in the tournament ranking, you can still enjoy the special events, featuring lots of players playing obscure game modes in the finest community levels! This is also the perfect opportunity to see what's possible with the JJ2+ mod.
See you at the opening event on Saturday!

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Jety again dominates, taking the big prize (JDC Champion) as well as a number of smaller ones. Impressively, she managed to play 4 duels more than last season, in spite of this season's slightly lower overall activity.
Hyperion also takes home two big awards, being both the most valuable player in team games and the winner of this season's JDCE tournament, which cements his position as perhaps this season's best allround player.
While this season saw less matches played than the previous one, I think we can look back on a series of good games and events nonetheless, and on behalf of the JDC officials I'd like to thank everyone for participating. We hope to see you back next time!
Here are the pairings for JDCE round 4:

Please submit your screenshots to a JDC admin (me, cooba, Ragnarok or Stijn) so we can add your duels for you. You have until Sunday 10th September. If you're not sure how to contact us, you may instead link to the screenshots in the comments section of this post (use an image sharing service like imgur).
NOTE: Please ignore the matchups for round 4 on the challonge page, as they are mostly incorrect.
Due to the end of the summer break rapidly approaching and the general decline in activity in this round, we've retroactively decided that the current round (Round 3) is going to be the last one this season. However, we're going to give people an extra weekend to play in, so therefore closing event will take place on Sunday 3rd September at 19:00 GMT+1. It's going to be a long one, so expect a huge variety of gamemodes and maps!
However, you may still continue to play your round 4 JDCE duels up until Sunday 10th September. Send your screenshots to one of the JDC admins and we'll add them for you.
The race event has been postponed by 24 hours. I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
EDIT: +15 minutes

A few people have contacted me over the past few days because their password reset e-mail did not arrive. I've tweaked a few settings and the e-mails should now arrive more reliably, so try again if you're still waiting for yours.
If things still don't work please don't hesitate to get in touch with me or another official who will be able to manually generate a password reset link for you.

General Stuff: CONGRATULATIONS TO LOONEY FOR WINNING ROUND 1. Round 2 has now begun; the main notable change is that the base points per win has increased from 5 to 10.
Challenge of the Round: The challenge of the round is to win at least five 2v2s with the same partner within this round. Because of the added difficulty, this challenge will be worth 40 points.
JDCE Updates: 6/8 duels have been completed for JDCE round 1, and due to a lack of availability, two of the players from round 1 have been substituted.
These players should aim to complete their duels before: 00:00 Monday 21st August to ensure that round 2 can commence without too much delay;
- Krzysiek (Fukushima, Gauntlet) vs Anubis (Scrapyard, The Astrolabe)
- Lazarro (Fukushima, Robust Ruins) vs master sven (Fukushima, Re-Purposed Offshore Platform)
The rest of the matchups will be announced the moment these duels are completed.
Live standings can be seen HERE.
This newspost is a heads-up that round 2 will start in less than 24 hours.
On a semi-related note, the JDCE deadline for duels is within that time also. For the players who still haven't played their duels yet, please endeavor to do so or you may be added to our hall of shame and receive a substantial point penalty. For those who cannot complete their games; please contact an official or an admin, or comment on this newspost.
Finally, congratulations to Krzysiek for winning the first one day tournament of this season.
