I think I’m in! Just so everyone knows that I’m the slowest son of a bitch in these forums.
@Snotty, plz think twice because we need the creator and title defender in this.
always only one game in each round, with decent breaks in between.
i think we would all be ready to upgrade patience level for you.
it worked for the CoB tourney after all.
Here are the current standings. The match-ups for the next round will just go group of 3 by group of 3 if we follow what we’ve done for other games in this decathlon.
The issue of course is our leader is bowing out. I think it is in our interest to find a replacement player if we can. I have a potential recruit in mind…I’ll see if that may be an option.
@Schlotzky is willing to join as a replacement player for the remainder of the decathlon.
Any suggestions on how we handle points? Options could be to just take over Snotty’s points so far, start with 3 (simulate last place for each round so far), or start with 0.
Honestly, though, I’m fine with any arrangement.
Hello everyone, thanks for having me. I have no opinion on what to do with the points, feel free to start me at zero.
I’m still in, glad to see the tournament of tournaments getting underway again. I may be able to organize one of the games later this year once the dust settles from moving.
I am perfectly ok with @Schlotzky taking over Snotty’s spot and his points. With 7 round left, there is room for everyone to still win the whole thing.
Hooray for everyone being in still!
Boo-hoo for Snotty being out.
Hooray for Schlotzky subbing in!
I’m on the fence about points. There are no substitutes in a real decathlon, but there’s something to be said for the homage to Snotty. @JHTaube what do you think? (You and @kennfusion and I have the most to gain if Snotty is crossed off the list…)
Here are probably the most likely options for Schlotzky, let’s just vote.
- Snotty’s points with 12 pts
- Tied with the Snottyless leaders at 10 pts
- The current average of 7 pts
- Tied with the low score of 3 pts
- Starts from scratch with 0 pts
Thanks for setting up the poll @kennfusion. Good ideas.
My position is that @Schlotzky starts with the average number of points.
Should @Schlotzky become this years champion I’m sure he and all other players would want the asterisk that goes with this substitution to have as little significance as possible. Starting with @Snotty128s points, I believe, would be seen as an artificial bonus.
This may or may not sound like a position that advantages myself. I can only state that this seems the fairest to me, regardless of the current standings.
TLDR: All three prior games have used 3-player tables which is not an option for Patchwork. To keep consistency in our scoring rubric, I believe we need to maintain “Tables” of 3 players who will each play the other two players. Each player will thus play two games of Patchwork. Should the table players finish with records of 2-0, 1-1, 0-2, then ranks within the tables are clear. Should the players all win one game, then score differential will determine places. Tables were assigned via random number in excel.
Let’s get quilting ladies and gentlemen!
Start a game with each player whose name is underneath yours and within the table. Everyone plays two games. Report scores using traditional scoring.
On your mark. Get set. Knit!!
My game name (in Patchwork and everywhere) is Mirefox. Send out friend invites and we can get our games going.
Friend request sent!
FYI there seems to be a bug with the current version where the 7x7 bonus is not always awarded when it should be. So, I guess take a screenshot of the quilt and score if that happens?
Friend invites sent.
Yes. Thanks for letting us know.
