LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Post by MinnesotaMyron » Fri Feb 16, 2018 1:49 am

Well, matchups for the new season (starting Tuesday) are out, and I find myself ronin-ing into Sugarloaf. Imagine my surprise, since once I got my own referral chain, I asked to not ronin anymore. I checked the message I sent, and I guess I wasn't exactly clear, saying I wanted to stay put after LL76, so I've got one more tour of duty in a foreign land before heading for my new home. Not gonna lie, I was really looking forward to being in Rubicon.

I do hope my referral this season, a certain WormanR, remembers to not cheat and not forfeit. ;)

Despite placing 5/20 in Rundle C Continental I, I've been promoted to Rundle B Continental. This is going to get ugly.

I'm ready for this!

I play prussc in both AMagnolia and the private Rundle intheJundle on day 1 - as always she's my wife and trivia nemesis (5-2 in public rundles, worse overall). We will be playing on sketchy hotel wifi in the Caribbean as we take a long-awaited winter vacation next week. That will lessen the sting.

Congrats to my referral and boardie MattaR on being promoted to A - looking forward to our first match! AMag looks fun to play, with lots of familiar names.

At long last, my rookie season begins :)
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Back in good ol' C ... Taiga? Yeah, that'll take a bit of getting used to.

But I am a quick study. :)

You're in last place in R Rubicon thanks to your last name: https://www.learnedleague.com/standings ... &R_Rubicon

Enjoy the season and good luck getting a good promotion.

Yup...looks as if this is your first season out of Pacific. Although my home league is now Taiga, my Ronin assignment for LL76 is as a Tochter aus Elysium C.

I think my Rundle in the Jundle second place finish is in serious trouble.

I just missed promotion to Continental A last season, but ultimately didn't make it. Now I find myself bumped up to Taiga A, which is weird

B Horizon again, with two boardies I recognize.
One of the other players is not one of the NBA's all-time leading scorers, it turns out.
RabnerG is a local high school academic team coach, whose team I may have faced years ago.
In for a second lap
