Loa Tournament 4, Round 1

The Fourth annual pbem tournament is in progress.  The tournament has 26 participants, all human (the Robots are taking the year off). Due to the number of players, there will be two rounds; the first consisting 6 or 7 player round-robins, and the second consisting of the winners and runners-up from the first round. Places in the first round were randomized in groups of four, seeded by current standing in the server ratings.

Here are the results from the first round.

Several players immediiately forfeited all their games. They've been obliterated from the records.
