Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Post by MinnesotaMyron » Fri Aug 18, 2017 3:22 am

Well, matchups have been posted, and I can't sleep, so I guess I can start the new thread.

I've been ronin-ed into B-Pac, where I'll be playing a couple of people I've met before, including a ToC champ!

Can't wait for Wednesday! (Darn you, eclipse!)

Is HoranZ in Rundle R Central who I think it is?

It looks like the already difficult A Badlands just got a two-time Integrity Scarf winner as a ronin, and it's not Mysterious Troy. I'm not sure how I'll be able to get more than five wins this season.

If who you speak of moved to Zurich, Switzerland, or claimed to move there, then yes.

The one you speak of would be banned from LearnedLeague, given his past on this board and other Internet activities.

I'm in C Prairie D2 with DHK who referred me. I suspect we will have a good idea how to play defense against each other on day 15.

I went from C Pac 2 to C Pac 1.

I will admit, I have enjoyed this trivia shutdown (no J! and no LL) over the past three weeks, but back to it on Wednesday.

B Summit here, after seven seasons in A Central.

I'm pleased to have stayed in A as long as I did, but I never had a serious chance of winning anything there.

Only the top three in my rundle will be promoted to A, but I'll try to stay in their vicinity. It'll be fun to have something more to fight for than in previous seasons.

Does Thorsten know that though? (I know he's been informed of others, not sure if he's aware of He Who Must Not Be Named)

I'll change my flag to a white one that day. :)

E Piedmont Div 2 for me once again (after taking last season off). Also, my first Private Rundle opponent is BigDaddyMatty ... guess we're starting off with a battle of the Mormons right out of the gate. :P

I finally made it to B Rundle!
...only because Horizon got diluted, due to half of last season's A Horizon moving to Olympic. I will be facing Blue Lion, tjconn, and for the first time, jjwaymee. Don't recognize any big J! champs, but a 6x and a 5x champ (whom I've beaten before) are in C.
