Well SHIV, I'm pretty sure you are pulling my leg ... I just think it's funny that you mark your turf everywhere.

The meta-gaming in Round 4 could get very interesting.

Game 3 includes 3 of the 7 players currently in position to advance, including the top 2 overall. If quarryman finds himself alive late in the game, how far out of his way does he go to make sure Boldblade is eliminated? Is Shyvve content with points to ensure he moves up to league 1 next year, or does he go for broke and try to win the league? (He's probably safe from relegation, but even that isn't a certainty.) And there are 3 players in this game who are currently in position to be eliminated. With the possibility of there being no league 3 next year, these players will really need to find their way into a draw -- and for some, even that won't be enough.

Game 2 is a battle of the middle. Of the 11 players who have between 10 and 20 points, 6 will be facing off in game 2. With good results, any of these 6 could advance. One of the 6 (IvarGizteb) is immune from relegation and 2 more (AleBelly and Iggy) are high enough in the tables to probably be safe, but 3 (duckling, saturos, and yours truly) could realistically advance or be relegated. Will they play it safe, seeking tiebreaker points to avoid relegation, or will they go for broke? And then there is the desperate, scoreless nanooktheeskimo -- or will it be his immune substitute, hitsukima? Stay tuned. Regardless, there figures to be lots of intrigue in this game.

Game 1 figures to be a shootout. It has 3 scoreless players, but two (MildWombat and Riles) are exempt from relegation so only one (Don Juan of Austria) will be in dire need of points. Two others (lb1785 and JoeHoya06) are in the middle ground were they could realistically advance or be relegated. And there are 2 players currently in the top 7, but mhsmith0's advancement position is safe while Astrup's is not.

Someone said my name? Looking at my history so far in the league... ...yeah, I definitely just play for the fun of it. Maybe hoping for another "World Cup upset"... :shock:

I’m not scoreless—I have 5 points for a 4 way. A good result I’m safe, a really good result I have a shot at promotion, and a bad result I’m relegated.

My bad. I forgot that the entry for Hitsukima doesn't include your results from before he subbed in.

Very interesting stuff. I don't think I have ever played a game with quarryman so idk if he will even be able to identify me. I certainly will have no clue who he is.

I am forecasting 3-way draws all around this round. I will probably get some power I am atrocious with and find early elimination in my game leaving powers desperate for a few points to agree to take them ASAP. Game 2 I suspect everyone will be playing it safe and voting their way into whatever points they can muster to avoid relegation rather tha risk it all for a chance at the promo. Game 1 I am sure mhsmith will find his way into a FIR within he first few hours and the game will wrap up most uneventfully.

So basically you guys are admitting that anonymous_countries does not preserve anonymity?

Well certainly not completely. Has anyone argued that it does?

<Shrug> I'm just not a fan of "anonymous" games, especially in a community where people know each other and anonymity is de facto broken anyway. I guess I don't get why the league has anonymous_countries if everyone assumes people can identify each other anyway.
