Game Stats

Brakgwar's Smashers ( 8 ) AT Sharp's Psychotropic Soiree ( 48 )

That was ermmm... "unexpected". I'll take it though :) I've been pretty unhappy with my team's performance so far this year. It's like all the luck was against em. For instance in that last game against Ice, I had more shots on goal, more offensive zone time, dished out more hits, and blocked more shots but got waxed and got 3 players killed in the process. I did "shake up the lineup" but I definitely didn't expect to win this one. But hey, don't look a gift orc in the mouth!

BTW, somehow my level 3 goalie who was hovering around 30% save ratio so far this year managed to block 8/9 shots once you got through my "starter" (and I say that lightly) goalies and the guy I demoted from the starter position cause he was hovering around 50% blocked 5/5. Go figure lol.

Whoohoo! I won a game without anyone dying! Rough season! ::skull::

Damien and Brett look to be the "contendas" with me and Brak picking up the droppings this year. Calling the final brackets:

Damien (I couldn't even dent his awesome team during the regular season)
Brett (managed to win 1)
Brak (I think he was holding back in our 2 game back to back) :)
Sharp (I hope - hate missing the playoffs)
Tune
Michael
Volt
Gunner

I am feeling pretty good about my spot. Glad to have made the playoffs at least. Really happy about my "D" this year. I had expected to light up the goal during the season with, what I "thought" were very good offensive players, but my defense got more stats than my offense somehow. (Although I do have the number 2 scorer behind Damien's Godly Propargharhix who apparently can't miss). Got the number 1 and 3 bruisers in the league and number 3 happens to also be #1 in blocked shots. Those guys were definitely good investments. One thing I am somewhat apprehensive about is how in the world I am going to pay for rollover.

Total required for keeping all orcs: 125762 additional gold.

Uhhh....

Current Treasury: 16819 gold :cry:

Looks like some hard choices ahead. And I think theres going to be some really good "Ex-Soiree" players out there come draft time next season :)

Well, round one of the playoffs has started and the results are mixed.

Damien's assassins: 43, Sharp's Psychotropic Soiree: 38
Brakgwars Smashers: 23, Brett's Orc Sickles: 16

I wholeheartedly expected to lose to Damien. Sort of didn't expect it to be so close. If it wasn't for my awesome wing Silmaleia going nuts and scoring 5 three pointers in the last 8 minutes of the third period, it wouldn't have been, for sure. I did manage to knock out one starting wing and a backup center from Damien's team, so who knows? There may be a 3rd game? Kinda doubt it though. I got destroyed in every game I faced him in during the regular season. My goalies simply cannot stop his scorers. Went through 6 "subpar to begin with" goalies tonight lol! The only thing that got me this far is that my guys can really wing it. BTW I saw somewhere on the boards recently that centers score more than wings. I beg to differ:

Lidwao 1 1 point shots, 10 3 point shots, 1 1point goal, 6 3 point goals
Silmaleia 8 3 point shots, 5 3 point goals

All 8 centers that played tonight combined for 3 points total. Don't sell your wings short :)

Brak - grats on the win! I really expected Brett to win tonight in your game. In hopes a "rookie" elite team can win it all, I am pulling for you :)

All in all, a good season. I expected to take far more lumps than I did and even if I come in 4th, I am happy with my team's performance.

Wow, grats on advancing to the finals Brak! Well, I managed to eek out a 1 point victory over Damien. (first in 5 tries) I think prob I will be facing Ice in a 3rd place shootout. But, hey. I am glad I won one in the first round. Really helps pad the ol coffers! Lost a 2nd string center tonight bleh. Obviously he wont be back in time for the 2nd round of the playoffs so thats a big loss. Sorry buddy, but I didn't manage to kill any more of Damien's players for your 2nd round :( Maybe next game ::skull::

I am starting to believe in my team. (usually the death knell) There's no way I can afford rollover. not even close. Maybe I just have so much an abundance of talent on my team its like... like... Destiny.... or something? These guys must be playing to get stats for the free agent market next year!

Or Brak will tromp me in the next 2 :)

Has a 4th seed ever gone on to win the championship in the history of Orcsports?

Game Stats

Brakgwar's Smashers (14) AT Sharp's Psychotropic Soiree (28 )

Grats Ice on your 3rd place finish with the Orc Sickles tonight. (Although I know you have more important things to think about. My prayers are with your family) I never would have though it, but I guess Damien's team just ran out of gas at the end of the season.

oh - btw, Mizzumt came up big for me again. I started him. Figured what the hell? He's been lucky for me since novice season! Stayed in the 3 point goal for half the game and only let 1 shot past. (We are already in negotiations for general managership of the team when he is finally retired.) Not really sure why he was in the 3 point goal when there was a gold star goalie in the other starting slot (mizzumt is supposedly silver star), but hey, I will take it :)

Sorry for not giving you a better run for your money. My guys played injured. Some of them were under tolerance before the game started. Ah, well... I'll take a bronze.

Well, I never would have thought this, but The Psychotropic Soiree pulled it off!

And I quote myself from earlier in this season:

Damien and Brett look to be the "contendas" with me and Brak picking up the droppings this year. Calling the final brackets:

Damien (I couldn't even dent his awesome team during the regular season)
Brett (managed to win 1)
Brak (I think he was holding back in our 2 game back to back) :)
Sharp (I hope - hate missing the playoffs)
Tune
Michael
Volt
Gunner

My "expert" analysis :wink:


I didn't manage to accurately predict ANY of the final standings except for TUNE!

Actual final order:

Sharp
Brak
Brett
Damien
Tune
Volt
Gunner
Michael

It's obvious I need to work on my prediction skills!

Well, thanks for a great first elite season guys!

I am still over 60000 gold shy of rollover for the team though :(

Maybe I will just retire the Soiree. Lol they will never be this good again after rollover!
