Good luck to everyone in the first set!

And I will NOT be volunteering for the second set, but I MIGHT be interested in hosting a discord spec server for that event if such a thing is allowed (if not then lolnevermind :P )

@Valis - when these are all done, will you (or someone) compile stats on the games?

Happy to hand this all off to mhsmith0, and happy to help as well. At the very least I imagine people would be interested in knowing points-in and points-out of each player, and histogram of results for each power.

It'll be fun to see Turkey and France at the bottom of the pack.

Competed games
1,2,6,7,8,9,10,15,16,17,20,21

So far, the most common result has been... a 3 way draw, with such result being six of the 12 completed games.
Also: 3/12 games were 4wd, two solos, and one 5wd

Points by power (these are skewed to some degree by the two solos by AG)
Germany 245
Austria 218
England 113
Turkey 105
Italy 96
France 78
Russia 55

There’s more to yammer on about at some point, but a decent # are still ongoing so pass for now.

Results through 14 games (excluding 4, 5, 11, 12, 14, 18, 19)

Player points
smith 229.8 (WHOOO FIRST PLACE! 😄 just don't ask me whether or not that will last 😛 )
Valis2501 227.5
Chaqa 206.5
RoganJosh 113.2
captainmeme 95.7
Wusti 66.5
brainbomb 40.8

Power points
Germany 262.5
Austria 212.3
France 124.8
England AND Italy 113.2
Turkey 81.7
Russia 72.3

Premature to say too much about player/power combos w 7 games left, but we're PROBABLY looking at
Best England: smith with 60.7 (3 draws)
Best France: smith 70.0 (1 solo)
Best Germany: Valis with 116.7!!!!! (1 solo AND 2 draws)
Best Italy: tbd
Best Austria: Chaqa with 93.3 (1 solo and 1 draw)
Best Russia: tbd
Best Turkey: tbd, but Valis with 40.8 at least has a notable lead

I have some other tracking stats but I sort of want to wait until it’s all over to get into some of the other stuff...

Best Austria?

I don't know man, game 3 was a complete FUBAR for me, apparently. I turned a solid draw into a solo :/

Yeah
But when I first saw it I was like “dammit chaqa is smack talking about his own solo” (before I looked at the actual number you cited)
I’m not still a bit bitter about that one or anything :P
