Back in A (In)Continental again, along with the usual cast of characters: bomtr, ElendilPickle, Ryno, Reddpen, slam, ProctorK and current TOC phenom SterlacciJ. One notable addition this season is one of my personal heroines, FuchsJ. Let the games begin, and may the best LLama win!

B Horizon, with a few other boardies. (Not sure if LegerM is also a boardie, but he's a ronin visiting from Continental.)

I'm in Continental D Div 1. Been close to promotion a few times, but was stymied by awful defense. Hoping to get over the hurdle this season.

Bayou D again, this time in Div 2. LL74, started out with 3 wins in a row, but a 6 game non-winning streak puts a quick damper on that.
Won some of Ben Stein's money. None of Alex Trebek's

I'm once again in D Prairie 2.

We have 32 people in our rundle, and I don't play head-to-head against bamaman this season.

What are these "volunteer Ronins" that some LLamas in this thread are speaking of?

You get assigned to Rundles that need extra players rather than always stuck in your specific branch.
I wanted to do this myself but by the time I got home to send a message, they stopped taking requests.

Badlands C

Both of my recruits were put in the same rookie rundle. Is this normal? Is it random, or do they try to split it up between the two rookie rundles in the division?

I think they try to keep them in the same division. At least that's been the case the last 2 seasons for me.

They try to stick the rookies from the same branch in the same rookie rundle, so that's completely normal. I guess I have an unusual goal, in that I'd like to be in 20th and 21st place in my rundle at some point in the season. In a bizarre statistical anomaly, in the 100 A-rundle matches I've played in, I've been in each of the positions of 1st-28th (I was in a 28-person A rundle in LL71) after an MD at least once not counting the alphabetical position before the first day, and have been in all of them at least twice except for 20th, 21st, and 27th.

I'm in B Alpine again. (EllwangerJ)

My refer-ee from last season got a battlefield promotion and is therefore in A Alpine. I am both proud and jealous.

What I love about being in A Pacific is losing to RutterB.

Also in B Horizon, after barely avoiding relegation. Good luck to all!

I kinda wish I hadn't been Ronin-ed out of Pacific, if I'm being honest. Playing in A Pac would have been almost as cool as playing A Fro.

And don't forget that discussion of them is prohibited until the results from the match day are posted.
