LL71: For The LLamas

Post by BigDaddyMatty » Wed Nov 09, 2016 12:49 pm

LL71 is nearly upon us. It's time to make LearnedLeague great again! (Too soon?) If you are interested in joining a private rundle in addition to your assigned rundle, you are cordially invited to join mine. Note that you must be at least a Premier member (the $50/year option) to join a private rundle.

Rundle Name: Rundle in the Jundle 2
Registration Code: llamasrulle

Sounds great - but I wasn't able to join with the rundle name and password as listed. Rundle name and password are both case sensitive - is something incorrect there?

I am ready for more private rundle jboardie action! Thanks for setting it up. Remember the deadline is soon!

The LL71 registration deadline is now 9am PT (5:00pm GMT) on Thursday, November 10. Note that this is the deadline for registering for (or withdrawing from) LL71, and also for renewing any expiring memberships, and also for joining a private rundle.

Anyone else really anticipating the new season, and can't wait for the rundle assignments to be populated? Since I have a new referral this season, I'm more anxious than others. Can't wait to see his name among the few, the proud, the LLamas.

Opening Day of LL71 coincides with our public library's trivia competition. Got to keep those brain cells sharp!

The season is all lined up now, and I apparently benefitted from some off-season moves - I finished one spot out of promotion last year but find myself promoted anyway, to B Horizon. I don't expect a long stay but I'm looking forward to the challenge!

We have a ronin with a career.883 qpct in our rundle this season. Easily .100 higher than anyone else in the rundle. Last season's winner was also a ronin.

I hope these ronin don't turn into a class of ringers that move from league to league dominating us mortals. It kinda seems that way right now in A.

I'm in Chorizo N Div 2 with Blue Lion, caknuck, tjconn, and... superchamp thethirdmoose, who I get to face not once, but twice.
I missed the cutoff for B Horizon by one place.

I was surprised to see A Badlands getting 28 people instead of 26, and one of the two people I don't play is BarrientosB (not exactly sure which JBoard username he is), whom I hadn't played before. Hopefully, I get to play against him in LL72. I'm apparently now the great-grandreferrer of one of the newest members of BBC's Eggheads, Beth Webster. I guess this now means I'm the eighth best quizzer in my LLineage.

I'll be spending my sophomore season in Rundle C Horizon, Division 2. Anyone else in that division?

Me too, though fifth consecutive in some flavor of C Pac. This is the first time we've been in the same rundle that we play each other only once.

I will play my referral OSXpert for the first time this season. I also see some of the usual suspects dnbguy and Volante. MRaff is over in C Pac 1.

I'm back for my fifth consecutive season in Horizon B. It's good to see some familiar faces.

I am demoted to E Continental 1 this season. I am happy because towards the end of last season it was really discouraging to have so many losses.

I (FrankJ) got an unexpected promotion to the new A Fjord, despite finishing 11th in my B Rundle last season. It looks like I was the last player selected, as 2 presumptive A Fjord players are sitting out the season, leaving just enough spots. Using last season's stats, I rank 26th of 26th in TCA, and the Rundle averaged .760 question percentage, which would have been around the 10th best A Rundle. This may be a bumpy ride.
