Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

And I have a DE of .000, thanks to (make sure you're sitting down) back-to-back 9(5)-9(5) ties. I've had 9(5)'s before, and I've given up 9(5)'s, but I can't remember ever doing both in the same game until now. I'm already halfway to my UfPA total from the entire LL80 season!

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I'm in Horizon for my twentieth (!) straight season and A for my seventh straight. How have I stayed in A for so long? My career QPct is under .600.

Re: Monday, April 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The combined Coryat was the lowest since this game over three years ago: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5488 I got as far as "A Star Is Born" and thought the song had the same name. Nope. 94/141 on FJ's this season. +1 for "idiom" (definitely wrong) and "pugilistic" (definitely accept...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also set personal records with $43,600 and a total of 51 right, including Final. The only other time I hit 50 right in a regular game was cbec's first game in 2016. I think the quarantine is making us smarter!

38% knew how to convert decimal to hexadecimal? Really?
That might've been the longest I've ever spent on a question. I got it right (and guessed the right answer first) but yikes.

Re: Learned League 84

After eight games, I have a winning record in A... but only one 3-pointer. I figure I'll need at least ten in the final seventeen matches, and a ton of luck, to climb up to the top 3.

Re: Friday, February 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was awfully cruel to make the contestants pronounce Paramaribo. Give the city and ask them to name the country instead. I had Pam-a-ri-bo and lost $2000, then lost another $2000 for saying "sleepwalking" instead of "somnambulation." And then my FJ streak snapped at 9. :x

Interesting interview with the new champ:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10A_cWOde_Y
A lot of it was basic stuff about the show we already know, but she was clearly influenced by a great recent champion. Also a sighting of a different contestant (a JZL) about 4 minutes in. Are they related?

Re: Learned League 84

LL84 Rundles are posted. Looks like BlishS has ronan'd his way over to A Horizon. Chalk up another 'L' for me... Yeah, I clicked on the standings and thought the same thing... then clicked on his flag and saw he's facing me on MD1! :shock: I faced the equally formidable DhuwaliaR in the SF&F minile...

48! I'm still in the pool until March so I took it off sherder's video. Were you at the September 2018 audition in Philadelphia? Because March is when my dip in the pool ends too. Also took today's off of the video but only managed 45/50. Totally blanked on a couple I kicked myself for just afterwa...

I think we can all agree that Karen's the best player of the decade. I'd put her at Silver for the next TOC.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My Coryat in Game 2 was twice that of Game 1, plus 200. I was at 0 for a long time in the first round of Game 1. I'm sure many of you had similar experiences. Impressive performances by all three! I'm a fan of all of them but Ken's long overdue for a tournament win... and with the most appearances o...

Congrats to BigDaddyMatty on his third straight A Horizon title. I finished with career highs in TCA, TMP, and CAA. If you'd told me four years ago that I'd crack 100 correct answers in a season and finish on the Maso leaderboard, I'd have :lol: I will be returning to A for a sixth straight season, ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Since the start of last season, I've had as many ties as wins. #ARundleLife
I'm having my best season ever- in terms of qpct- thanks to two 6-packs and six 5's, but everyone brings their A-game when they play me.

Re: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is Jennifer the first contestant with the last initial Q to win 5 games? I hope she won't be the last. She's been doing really well in her Rookie Rundle and I wouldn't be surprised if she makes it to A within two or three seasons. If she continues to hold the other contestants by the nose and kick t...

Re: Thursday, November 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know it was innocent, but why wasn't that first DD wager changed in post-production? Even though only a couple numbers are prohibited, it's still possible to get those numbers during the show, and as a result of that wrong answer, we got two of them.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Achievement Unlocked: 50 Losses in A, B, and C I'm actually at 51 now. 12 more wins in A and I'll have an achievement to be proud of. I imagine fewer than 2% of LLamas have 50+ wins (or losses) at three different levels. I've had a few Buckner ties but those don't count. Personal Records shows 433 m...
