Top Picks to Win 2019
by: Kalamere - March 15th, 2019 - 10:22am

The pools are in and dueling has begun! Now that the game is afoot, I thought we’d take a look at the people’s choice winners for this madness season. There are some very interesting picks this year and, to some of your dismay (and mine!) a top final four pick has already been eliminated!

Dragoon-Talanador Division:

Final Four:

For the top half of this division, the two most picked to advance are Matt Simon (12) and Rachael Blackthorne (9). Rachael gave us all a bit of a scare last night when it took her 16 rounds and 10 points to fend off Ebon, but in the end managed to pull out the win.

Can you feel that voice gnawing in the back of your head? That second glance down the hall, swear you saw something move? Or maybe it’s just the way you look in the mirror today; something’s just not right. No, you’re not going mad, it’s just Madness. It’s your favorite Rhy’Din sport analyst, Eve, and I’m going to breakdown this year’s Madness stock so you at home have a little guide for your brackets(this is not legal advice, and this is meant for entertainment purposes only). Alright, are we all onboard? Good? Good. Let’s begin!

Madness is Back!
by: Kalamere - March 5th, 2019 - 10:41am

Once again it is that time of the year for duelist to sharper their blades and head to the arena for years most anticipated swords tournament. Back for its 13th year, DoS Madness begins on Thursday March 14th with a 32 person roster filled to the brim with dueling talent. Old names return, like Chris Graziano, to face off against rising stars, such as Mallory Maeda, newcomers like Runt and a slew of other well known names.

This year’s tournament carries the usual top prizes as well as a new hitch. Finish at the top and be immortalized next year as one of the brackets carries your name!

And of course, it wouldn’t be Madnes   . . .
