At this point I just have to assume my PM about not ronin-ing anymore must have been misplaced. Given how happy I am that the site is back up, I'll be alright. Rubicon will soldier on without me for another season.

And now to see who I'll be dueling with in A Commonwealth, and to repopulate my player tracker. Next week can't come soon enough.

I'm proud to represent Sugarloaf D Div 2 :D
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I make my 3rd foray from C to B. Let's see if it last more than one season this time.

Down from Prairie B to Prairie C and my second crack at DHK who referred me to LL. 34 in the group with top 4 up to B. Hope the 8 I don't play are good ones to avoid. HittM & WarwickB are J! Board members to help with their defense against me.

Likewise I'm taking my 3rd crack at A Fjord. Had to dip down to C this time to build extra momentum coming back up, we'll see if that strategy paid off.

Glad to have you!

AMag is populated with 5 boardies/former boardies. We lost Colby Burnett to another league so our TOC champ cachet has dropped a bit. Looking forward to LL77!

I just noticed I'll be playing KlothA on MD19 for the title of Sioux Falls Champion, since the other Sioux Fallsian in LL is taking LL77 off.

Also, LL77 has rotational symmetry.

Back to B Midland for me after a short stint in A. Looks like I have a couple recent J! contestants in my Rundle. Can't wait.

I'm back to facing an Egghead and a Chaser as opposed to just a Chaser after the Egghead got relegated a couple of seasons ago but since got re-promoted. She keeps telling me that Pat is going to join, and then he changes his mind.

My Ronin assignment is C Commonwealth. Seven out of 32 will be relegated to D, which seems like a large fraction.

I'm apparently the only Rundle in the Jundle participant not in A or B. I have a feeling that the poker saying which goes something like "if, after ten minutes, you can't tell who the patsy is, it's you" may be applicable.

Got promoted from E back into D (Bayou, Div 1). This SHOULD be where I belong, if I can stop playing James Harden level defense.
Now swimming in the J! pool.

Back for another season in A Midland. Only avoided relegation in LL76 thanks to two wins by forfeit.

Hah...that's the whole reason I got demoted - every metric put me average or better in rundle D except for...D...

Batted .500 for the first time last season...still got demoted to E.
