Not a bad idea imo. I forget whether it was me who originally suggested that no shows go first on any given day, and then lowest score goes if there are not any no shows, but the above looks better and cleaner. Warped, It would just be a minor edit on the tourney news tab if you decide to go for it.

I am not really worried about the possible boring part at the beginning as much as something odd happening on the 18th or so where let's say I (SubArcticK) am last but I get saved only because [redacted] missed his/her first game of the month. Being saved by luck on Oct 5th or 6th or 7th not such a big deal, but being saved mid or late in the game by luck might not be so great. Arjun's suggestion would avoid that..

your call, obviously, warped

Also, awesome writeup, waffles/warped. And, that Tourney News tab is a big plus for stuff like this... It is impossible for every player not to be in the loop.

Re: Triplechain

I haven't won a DC in living memory. Maybe not Inn the covid era. Maybe not since trump took office.

Monthly Race
  • In the history of the monthly DC race, there has only been one tie -- in March 2018, SubArcticK and Alex tied at 254, with SubArc winning the tiebreaker via more DC wins. It looked like we were headed for another one in September, with SubArc and Dynasty tied at 218 going into the last day of the month. However, SubArcticK put up a fifth-place score on September 30, while Dynasty finished out of the top 10, giving SubArc his 10th monthly DC win. SubArc posted the most top-5 finishes during the month, and the win marked his 13th consecutive month with a top-10 finish.
  • Dynasty netted the most top-10 finishes in September (18), including 4 second-place scores, but just missed out on the monthly win.
  • The rest of the top 5 were separated by just four points. dogfloss finished third thanks to nine top-3 finishes, velourfog had two wins and three other top-5 finishes in the last nine days of the month to leap into fourth place, and wafflesobv led the table with 4 DC wins, finishing in fifth.
  • The rest of the top 10 were also tightly bunched. Bandwagon had the fewest top-10 finishes among the group with 11, but 10 of them were in the top 5; nails was the only player to finish in every spot in the top 10 during the month; and arjun13 held on to 10th place to extend his top-10 streak to 24 consecutive months.

Milestones
  • velourfog got his 250th DC win on September 24, the sixth player to reach that milestone.
  • Guessinator got his 150th DC win on September 1. He has since added two more wins and sits 15th on the all-time wins list.

Stat of the Month

228: SubArcticK's DC points total in September was the lowest winning score since arjun13 won with 205 in October 2019, reflecting both the parity and few overall DC wins (37) during the month.

I wish there was a 2nd-4th ranking for DC. I've ranked in the 3-4 range and only gotten 1 clear win in DC.

Re: Triplechain

Elimination games for the Guillotine start today! Altogether we ended up with 30 qualifiers into the tourny. I'm anticipating it'll take around 3-3.5 weeks to run. I'll post a couple updates here and there but the most updated information will be found on the Tourney News tab on the site. Good luck everyone!

Edit: Also, if there's anyone who wants to still get in I'll allow entries until the end of the day, you must play today though. It is an elimination round, so you're still in play like everyone else.

Re: Triplechain

I managed to play the DC twice this morning - when I finished the first time, there was a resume button available. I'll send a message on the site's chat, too, but if anyone knows how to alert Zac, lmk.

Re: Triplechain

Just a reminder that the Winter Classic Triple Crown Tourney (white trophy) starts on November 1st. See post 2020-006 in the Tourney News tab on the Triplechain site for more information.

If you plan on competing don't forget to sign up in the Tourney section for the Winter Classic Bonus Point Free for All. Registration for that tourney closes Thursday (around noon, I think). This tourney is 30 games in 30 days, so people should have lots of time to get their games in.

Re: Triplechain

Registration is open for 3 days for the November Championship. Congrats to nails on winning the October tourney. Don't forget that this November tourney can earn you points towards the Winter Classic Triple Crown title (and trophy).

On the TC site see post 2020-006 in the Tourney News section (under Help) for more info. You earn at least 2 points just for playing in this tourney!!!!

Hey Gaby, nails won 4 in a row and I've reached 200 wins in fewer games than you. You may as well come back and set the record straight.

Monthly Race
  • The November DC race played out very similarly to the October race -- nails led the table for most of the month, only to be overtaken by arjun13 in the last week. arjun had the most top-5 finishes (17), including 5 wins, and tied with SubArcticK for the most top-10 finishes (22) during the month. He also added a hat trick (3 consecutive DC wins) on November 19-21. It was arjun's 18th monthly DC win and his 26th straight month with a top-10 score.
  • nails held on to second place despite just one top-10 finish in the last week of the month. nails tied for the most DC wins with wafflesobv and was second behind arjun with 13 top-5 finishes. nails also became the second player ever (and the first since Gaby in May 2014) to win 4 consecutive DCs. Like Gaby, nails had two solo wins and two shared wins during the streak.
  • wafflesobv and SubArcticK finished in third and fourth place, respectively. waffles passed SubArc on the last day of the month by virtue of his 7th DC win. Dynasty rounded out the top 5 thanks to 20 top-10 finishes in November.
  • Among the remainder of the top 10, Bandwagon's sixth-place finish was his 10th consecutive top-10 finish, while consul and Kokirixx tied for the last spot in the top 10, but consul won the tiebreaker with one extra DC win. Along with Kokirixx, dogfloss and Donk4 finished just outside the top 10.

Milestones
  • arjun13 posted his 200th DC win on November 21, completing his hat trick at the same time and becoming the 10th player to reach this milestone.
  • arjun13 also moved past Derwi to take over third place on the all-time DC yearly race points list.

Stat of the Month

67: There were 67 DC wins in November, tied for the fifth-most in DC history (the record is 75 wins in October 2018). November DCs had multiple winners on 10 of the 30 days.


Year-to-Date DC Stats

There is much to play for in the year's final month:
  • The yearly race has come down to arjun and SubArc, who are separated by just 7 points going into December. It's possible that both of them could end the year with a top-5 all-time yearly race score (fifth is currently 186).
  • arjun's 46 DC wins are the fourth-highest ever in a calendar year, and he can move into second place with three DC wins in December. He would need 11 wins to pass the all-time record of 56.
  • arjun's 2,698 DC points so far this year is in sixth place on the all-time list; he can move into second place with 221 DC points in December.

Re: Triplechain

For those who don't play DCs every day, or for those who don't look at chatroll...

Don't miss out on the first Team Tournament in Triplechain.....


Registration is now Open for the 50 Day Holiday FFA Team Tournament, the only Triplechain team tourney. See post 2020-008 in the Tourney News tab (under Help) for more info.

Everyone who plays will be assigned to 1 of 4 teams, so you all have a 25% chance of winning a dark blue trophy!!!

You have 5 more days to register (in the regular "Tourneys" section).

Please don't register if you can't commit to 50 games in 30 days (Dec 13th to Jan 13th). But, that is just shy of 2 games per day, so easy stuff...

This one is going to be really fun people...

What could more fun than a team event!!!!!!

Re: Triplechain

Following are the teams for the 2020 50 Game Holiday FFA Team Tournament. Selection/assignment order was based on DC ratings as of end of day Dec 12th.

Selection OrderCharmersBlack WidowsJackrabbitsMisclicks
1st roundSubArcticK arjun13 Bandwagon dogfloss
2nd roundvelourfog Dynasty wafflesobv nails
3rd roundDerwi Anton-09 Hg80 Kokirixx
4th roundCherrycin Nimbusfan lilrascal shamsnemesis
5th roundmikeb clemmi   
     
TotalTeams Wins/5 = Team ave (?)Teams Wins/5 = Team ave (?)Teams Wins/4 = Team ave (?)Teams Wins/4 = Team ave (?)
    


So, who wins?

1. The player(s) with the most wins get a dark blue trophy (same as before)

2. Also, ALL players on the TEAM with the highest wins per-player average get a dark blue trophy. By using highest wins per-player we don’t have to worry about two teams having 5 players and two teams having 4 ).

Have fun everyone..
