Piaras M Carney Due to a bug on my laptop locking me out of my account for the best part of a week, I finally get to classify the results to all of you.

First of all, congrats to Bradley Horrocks, who put in a stonkingly good performance, taking maximum points and getting a few big wins, as well as the Division 1 title. Congrats also to 27 champion Thomas Carey, getting a very respectable second, and to Zarte (whose decision to found this league some 210.8 million seconds or so ago is the very reason I'm commenting this) who went one better than 27, finishing in 3rd. ul to Spike and Eddy, who were narrowly relegated to Division 2. [1/5]

Piaras M Carney Consequently, kudos to Robin & James Haughton, who were in fact promoted to the top flight, Robin bouncing back at the first attempt. I should think James will do great in D1, given how well he's been doing recently. Bad luck to James Hurrell, who finds himself back in Division 3.
Well done to Tracey Mills, who barely beat Brett to the seventh spot situated in Division 2 in their playoff game. [2/5]

Piaras M Carney Replacing James Hurrell will be Sean Fletcher, who won 7/7, notching up 114.7 points per game, and finishing well clear of the rest of the pack. Brett did well to finish second, especially after finishing in the relegation playoff place in 27, but unfortunately couldn't make it into Division 2. Bad luck to Andy SC, who was beaten in his playoff game, and relegated to Division 4.

Piaras M Carney In Division 4, the champion was none other than Matt Croy, who earns himself a ticket to Division 3 in 29. Joining him will be Edward Ashcroft, who was victorious over the unfortunate Andy in their playoff game (and came out on top in a very tight pack of players.) Sam Reilly withdrew at the end of the season :( so there was no automatic relegation to Division 5. Instead, Derek Matthews took up the playoff place. (Due to his inactivity for over a month, compared to James' 2 minutes, I've decided to promote James and relegate Derek.)

Piaras M Carney Filling the spots in Division 4 will be James Rowan, as mentioned above, and the champion, Luke Johnson-Davies. LJD notched up 6 wins out of 7, which is enough to see him into Division 4.

Thanks to all who participated, and special thanks to everyone who managed to get all their games played. See you all next month, on the 6th of May. Same time, same place, you be sure of it.

Tourney round: The Apto-Tude League: Cycle 28: Playoffs: Part II: Electric Boogaloo

<< Cycle 28: Playoffs | Cycle 29 >>

Notes from the organizer: Play-Offs Episode II: Attack of the Misfortune of Your Tourney Round Going Unnoticed

In case I have the unfortunate misfortune of my tourney round once again going accidentally unnoticed (no offence meant, if any is taken) I have extended the end date to the last day of this decade. Once the round gets approved, you will then, starting from the immediately succeeding Monday, have a week to play your games. gl to Spike, James, Tracey, Brett, Andy, Edward, Derek & other James :)

(Side note: I've been thinking of expanding Divisions 1 and 2 to have 8 players (probably because the rest of the divisions do).
- the process would start next cycle
- there would be 1 up, 0 down, also 1 pro/rel playoff place in each division
- the highest-ranked of the applicants for cycle 30 would be promoted to the new division
- after that the promotion/relegation places would return to what they were beforehand
- so let me know if you think/don't think this is a good idea pls)

gl everyone :)
