All teams started with 4 players. Some of the players are eliminated form the singles tournement, but they are still elligible to play in the team.

So very few teams should need to find find new player for the team unless the player on the team has quit the game or will not play.

I don't think it is fair for the "no team" players to pick a team at this point because they will be picking people that are still in the tourney and therefor have a lot more points.

I do think it is fair to ramdomly match up the 18 people who were never put on a team. (but 18 does not go into 4) :?

Hi Bob.
I left this for a while to see if anyone else had a comment, but it seems nobody else will.

There are quite a few teams who have lost members permanently. I'm not sure exactly how many, but quite a few. CC has a fairly high turnover rate, and I'm not just talking about noobs who sign up for a while and go away. I'm talking about long-established players, active, involved in the community, who simply have something come up in their life and vanish. For instance McLor, who was no casual dilettante: he was a Brigadier and very active in the clan scene on CC, suddenly vanished without a trace. And of course DJENRE himself. Those are just a couple examples off the top of my head, by no means an exhaustive list. We've lost a lot of people with no explanation, and several with an explanation, like Marechal Joffre.

I don't know how many teams will be scrambling for a fourth player or possibly even for multiple players. That's why I posted the interim team standings. I wanted those people who have a reasoable probability of being in the final to start thinking about it.

Now, on to the issue of allowing a new team. I understand your point: now that the tourney is almost done, there is some unfairness involved in letting the unteamed players cherry-pick a good team, having seen the standings. I agree, there is some unfairness in it, but I don't think it's totally wrong.

First: The fact that these players have done well in individual games is no guarantee that they will do well in team games.

Second: The number one problem I've had to contend with in this tournament is apathy. The tournament has been long, slow, and boring for most people, it had many design flaws, and just keeping people joining their games has been a challenge. So if someone actually cares enough to form a team and try to get into the finals, I'm not going to discourage this sign of nascent interest.

However, I do agree with you to a limited extent, so I will meet you part way on one point: the new team being formed, assuming it qualifies, will be ranked 8th going in to the final, regardless of the points of the players in it. This will at least make sure they don't get home-ice advantage as a result of having cherry-picked better players.

Thanks - You have done a great job trying to make this tourney work. The team tourney will be no easy task. You are right about players leaving. I just check my team and 1 member has not been on since July, so I am guessing that is pretty standard after almost a year.

Thanks for listening. I think you are making fine decisions :)

Seamus76 is the new leader on the table with his last perfect 20 points on the last Arctic map, but he has no more unfinished games.

general_c is theoretically the winner, being 3rd now with -8 points behind the leader BUT with 2 more games to cash in.

also, there is a theoretical chance for Pack Man and General Redstone but only if they get 16/18/20 points in their last game...

It would be nice if once in a while somebody said, "Thank you Pandemonium for keeping track of all these complicated scores."

Anyway: Thank you Pandemonium for keeping track of all these complicated scores! =D> =D> =D>

Its OK Dukasaur, I don't expect any back tapping from the players,
what I expect from them is to be active and write in game chat AND in this thread loud and clear about the bonuses :) so I can check them out more easily :)

I have to agree with Dukasaur, you volunteered for a hard job, thanks for doing it.

I'm so close just need four more points, aka bump one person from game 9401803 and I can tie for first :). Although Sam02 has a bunch of games still active.

Three games are stalled and seem to be going nowhere.
Game 9401803
Game 9727842
Game 9802695

How about we declare a New Year's Eve moratorium on these?

Any games that don't end by the time the ball drops on New Year's Eve, we will pool the remaining points (the points that could have been won if the games had ended) and divide them between the remaining players?

Then we can start 2012 fresh by getting the Team Finale going.

Comments?
