League Ending the 4th of July!

Postby Seth » Wed May 18, 2011 3:24 pm

This has been an odd league. We are five games in, with the standings currently;

League Standings

Overlord's Team IQ Win-Loss-Tie Points For - Against
Seth's Bork Bork Orcs 23 5-0-0 40 - 11
Jinsaku's Ice Road Truckers 21 4-0-1 81 - 30
chris's chaos theory 19 4-1-0 89 - 34
Java's Java 11 2-2-1 140 - 40
Splattsville's Plunderama 9 2-3-0 100 - 89
Anthony's Night Hawks 4 1-4-0 127 - 41
Decidedly Different 's Pillage People 4 1-4-0 9 - 68
Andrew's MeLoveFluffyBunnies 0 0-5-0 5 - 278

My team has one of the lowest "points for" totals in the league but is still clinging to first place. I just can't seem to find any offensive players that can score, though my defense and goalies have been top notch. We'll see if my tentative lead holds after tonight's game with Jinsaku.

Splattsville and Decidedly Different are friends of mine that I convinced to try the game. They are learning some lessons the hard way. Hope they aren't too discouraged...

So... in your world, undefeated = "barely clinging on"?

The clinging is continuing!

Overlord's Team IQ Win-Loss-Tie Points For - Against
Seth's Bork Bork Orcs 42 9-0-0 348 - 15
Jinsaku's Ice Road Truckers 35 7-1-1 245 - 48
Java's Java 26 5-3-1 207 - 63
chris's chaos theory 23 5-4-0 193 - 115
Anthony's Night Hawks 19 4-5-0 174 - 70
Splattsville's Plunderama 14 3-6-0 130 - 155
Decidedly Different 's Pillage People 9 2-7-0 47 - 132
Andrew's MeLoveFluffyBunnies 0 0-9-0 7 - 753

My numbers are now misleading. While I've scored 348 points, most of those were against Andrew's team, which appears to be undermanned and unmanaged.

Pretty proud of the 15 points against, though. A little less than 2 points allowed per game? Yeah, I can live with that.

Andrew's MeLoveFluffyBunnies 0 0-12-0 7 - 1137

More than halfway through, now!

My goals against per game has risen above 2. I suppose I can still live with it. :) Jinsaku has a much better offensive team than I do. We'll see which strategy works out better in the playoffs.

Yeah, I dunno. We'll see. I've already almost written this season off as a lost cause (meaning I probably won't pursue this team for a second season. Made a lot of mistakes in the opening bids).

I'm still trying to figure out how you killed 4 of my dudes in 1 game.. particularly with our double header coming up next week.

I'm screwed. I've been too aggressive with looting. I have like 8 guys dead including 2 of my front line, and everyone else is dead tired.

I might just sit my main line and let you roll over me twice, just to get my guys some rest.. it appears I'll be going into the playoffs in 2nd anyway.

We'll see. SHOWDOWN!

Sorry!

I mean, I'm sorry. The orcs are out for blood, they probably aren't sorry at all...

See you in the finals! ^_^

Ow, that's gotta hurt. Seth starts 20-0 and, assuming gearing up for the playoffs and resting some of his stars, loses games 21.

Ouch.

Yeah, that did hurt. And I wasn't even resting my guys.

And then they lost their first playoff game!

But they've come back and I'll see you in the championship after all.

It was an odd season. Lost my first playoff game to the Pillage People, and the second game in the finals to Jinsaku, but in the end, the Bork Bork Orcs tasted victory and hoisted the (no doubt rather bloody) gold cup.

Well fought, sir! Hoping not to see you again in Division 4. Your orcs are tenacious!
