LL83: Learned League

Post by boson » Wed Nov 06, 2019 1:32 pm

Learned league is an online trivia network that many of us on JBoard participate in. It is accessible by referral only, so if you are a jboardie who has participated in our online community for some time, you may be able to get a referral here.

For existing Llamas, this thread is for discussion of LL83, starting November 13 2019.

JBoard private rundle: If anyone would like to join a private rundle for LL83, I've recently upgraded my membership (mostly to get a LL t-shirt), so I can create a private rundle. Premier members of LL can join one private rundle - this one is open to everyone reading this message, hopefully many boardies will join. This gives a little side competition to go with the main learned league competition.

Private Rundle: Jboardom
Registration Code: llamatastic

I'm really late to the game: registration closes tonight at midnight pacific! Register today if you want to join the league.

With a generous definition of "some time", this is me! I'd be extremely grateful for a referral - I've been lurking LL for the last two years now (i.e. playing the questions once they're publicly listed).

Only premier members (and higher) can join. I got excited thinking things have changed so I could finally get in on the boardie rundle, but it won't let me since I'm just a standard member.
My apologies- I forgot the limitations. I'll edit the post above.

I'm also not allowed in the private rundle, because LL83 is my rookie year. But I hope to see some of you once I get past my cria time. :)

I have the hardest time finding things on the LL site. Can someone send me the link for joining the private Rundle?

The rundles are closed now - both public and private. You can see your schedule now on the main LL page.

The person who has won A Magnolia several times, and beat me like a rented mule for years, isn't playing this sesson. The weird thing is that our head-to-head record has been wiped from the record. To be honest, I'm happy about that.

I recently looked over the past 20 seasons in LL. Fully half of the Rundle winners of my Rundles are no longer active. Make of that what you will.

Finally clawed my way up to Rundle A Taiga. Some big names in there. Hope I can hang on for more than a season.

Same for the person who posted six 9(6)’s to close out LL81 and beat me for first place on MPD. Strange.
Hate bad wagering? Me too. Join me at The Final Wager.

I'm still in A Taiga, where I see that WhitlockS has joined us this season. Looking forward to the inevitable butt-kicking.

In Prairie D2. We have 26 players this time so we have a pure round robin with no rematches. Even better, I don’t start out in last place!!!

So, is this another purge of suspected cheaters? I note that the person Vermonter mentioned didn't make the cut in the most recent championship, despite gaudy LL statistics. The person I described did make the cut, and beat people in the same rundle who are still playing.

The A Magnolia winner of LL 81 and LL 82 did not return. They had 3 forfeits in LL 82, so they should have to sit out a season, regardless. I will not speculate further.

Far more important than who is NOT in A Magnolia, is who has returned! I am excited to see the return of patkav to A Magnolia! Woo hoo!

I get to start off LL 83 with a double bomtr, getting him in both A Cont and the private Rundle. Oh, joy! :mrgreen:

Still a Summit A original here, having gotten moved there when the league got created. I’m super excited that I finally get to play my referrer this season, as she earned promotion on the last day of LL 82. This might be the first time in months we also have a full roster, as LL 81 had a 25-match Pavano and LL 82 had someone zeroed out for the season for not showing up to their championship live session.
