Actually I may vacate a spot for you in C as I may be demoted to D.

i am unconvinced that the good, the bad and the ugly is a prequel

mookieproof, Thursday, 25 June 2020 16:26 (four years ago) link

i would agree with you!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 25 June 2020 16:41 (four years ago) link

second "the good the bad and the ugly" question this season!

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 25 June 2020 17:20 (four years ago) link

Right, was wondering about that.

Barry "Fatha" Hines (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 25 June 2020 17:23 (four years ago) link

*phew*

I also guessed "bullish" and thought it was a decent guess, but Thorsten had other ideas.

A string of losses at the end dropped me into the E range for my rookie rundle. Despite hopes to maintain my position in the D range, I couldn't clinch it.

This was such a nice experience. Every morning, I looked forward to checking yesterday's match results, current standings, and puzzling over questions. Even felt a little disappointed when there weren't questions to answer on weekends. Really looking forward to next season.

i had the feeling that i always end up right near the middle of the pack by the end of each season, so i checked and i have a .501 career winning percentage

can't believe I'm crashing into C on account of my 3 forfeits this season, somewhat grumpy with myself

Samesies! Mine is .497.

jaymc, Friday, 26 June 2020 15:14 (four years ago) link

Based on my performance in the first two-thirds of the season, I thought I was going to have a career-high QPct this season, but I didn't do nearly as well in the final stretch. I gather from the message board that this was not an uncommon experience.

jaymc, Friday, 26 June 2020 15:18 (four years ago) link

I feel like I got more correct as the season went, terrible beginning better muddle/ending.

Getting promoted to C! One point away from first in my rundle.

TRANCED INTO RADIOACTIVE PUREE (Will M.), Friday, 26 June 2020 16:16 (four years ago) link

I'm really pleased with how I did (as I expected, I solidified my standing and will move to C), especially considering that I stumbled out of the gate. I had the hardest schedule among the top 10 for much of the season (except at the end, where the combined winning percentage of my opponents was under 0.400), though I still had a winning record against players above 0.500 (7-5-3).

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Friday, 26 June 2020 17:25 (four years ago) link

absolute belly flop, will pretend this season never happened.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 26 June 2020 17:28 (four years ago) link

beat the top two finishers, lost to the last-place person. so it goes

last four seasons i've finished 10th, 7th, 9th, 8th

mookieproof, Friday, 26 June 2020 18:31 (four years ago) link

I miss it :(

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Monday, 29 June 2020 18:41 (four years ago) link

Same! At least some new ODSes start this weekend.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Monday, 29 June 2020 18:43 (four years ago) link

Anyway, I've submitted my member dues and eagerly await my flag becoming visible.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Monday, 29 June 2020 19:14 (four years ago) link

MUAHAHAHA: https://learnedleague.com/profiles.php?41687

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Tuesday, 30 June 2020 16:52 (four years ago) link

So the 1DS (1DSes?) start up on the 4h?

Two Spocks Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 1 July 2020 17:40 (four years ago) link

Yup. I'm looking forward to the General Knowledge Book Club ML, too. Seems like a neat premise.

jaymc, Wednesday, 1 July 2020 17:58 (four years ago) link

Not going to say anything more for a few hours, but there are still two hours left to do the 1DS Cryptic Clues 2.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 6 July 2020 14:03 (four years ago) link

Going up against A-rundlers is going to be a rude awakening!

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:40 (four years ago) link

Are you in A now?

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:41 (four years ago) link

Haha no way, but my opponent in the book club ML is. His lowest subject CA% is 72%.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:51 (four years ago) link

I actually have come to find that situation somewhat relaxing, there’s nothing to lose.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 9 July 2020 23:29 (four years ago) link

Oh, no doubt. Why bother overthinking your defense when they're probably going to 9(6) the match?

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:13 (four years ago) link

I know everyone has different knowledge but the person I was against for day one of General Knowledge Book Club has a 76% get rate in Theater but didn’t get Six Degrees of Separation.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:32 (four years ago) link

Which seemed easy to me, who has a 54% in Theater and was honestly surprised it was that high.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:34 (four years ago) link

To be fair, movie trivia is my strongest category but I totally flubbed the Movie Pairs One Day.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:36 (four years ago) link

That is weird about Six Degrees of Separation.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 02:48 (four years ago) link

Turns out I am competing with a Type A today as well.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 02:48 (four years ago) link

i am enjoying the GKBook Club stuff so far.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 10 July 2020 04:00 (four years ago) link

I am enjoying as well

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 04:13 (four years ago) link

You'd think an English degree would help in this ML but not really! Moby Dick aside, anyway.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Friday, 10 July 2020 15:38 (four years ago) link

After a total whiff on the first day of the MCU ML, I think I'm going to regret registering for that one.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Sunday, 12 July 2020 22:04 (four years ago) link

Gave that one a wide berth, not in my wheelhouse.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 12 July 2020 22:42 (four years ago) link

How's everybody doing in the Book Club? I am in third, I think.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:09 (three years ago) link

But I have a match coming up on Monday against jaymc's distant relative, so I am a little worried.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:10 (three years ago) link

Four one days coming due tomorrow, I have yet to peep out
Florida Man (Mon)
Salmon (Mon)
The Art World (Mon)
The French Revolution (Mon)
Maybe I will have a look-see now

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:11 (three years ago) link

not-quite-jaymc has a knowledge profile similar to mine and is in A Rundle, so I will proceed with cation.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Caution, even

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Also just registered for School of Rock.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:14 (three years ago) link

not doing well but really enjoying book club! 3-4-1

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 19 July 2020 21:47 (three years ago) link

Synchronicity continues as I too am 3-4-1.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Monday, 20 July 2020 04:27 (three years ago) link

Anyone need a referral? ‘Tis the off-season.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 23:39 (three years ago) link

Instead of Fred Willard I put Bob Odenkirk.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 22 July 2020 11:12 (three years ago) link

I got my first 9(6) AND 12/12 yesterday!
