603Re: Team RoboRally Result of Game 21 of 26 April 2009
- May 3, 2009Sounds like an interesting session - 9 points to StuartF! Wow! And nobody on the losing side getting any points also is a first; I am particularly impressed with StuartF's persistent luck :)
I have updated the league tables and have posted the results on the LBGC site as usual, but think the situation warrants including them in this email too.
First, in the 2009 league BobR has lost the top spot, and StuartF has stormed in with a lead that is hard to beat. Stuart, if you don't play any more TRR this season you'll probably win it - so you will certainly be challenged soon :) Even though BobR's already impressive score actually went up, he still has been relegated to 2nd place and the rest of us are far, far behind... Here are all the results:
In the Eternal League, JosepA has been #1 since late last year, and... now StuartF is back on top here, too! It says something about JosepA's skill that he - in spite of such a big loss - still manages to retain 2nd place though. The other big movement is from HannesS, who moved up no less than 12 places and now sits nicely in the top part of the table, breathing down BobR's neck:
I think it is clear that we need to play more TRR soon, and that we need to think about how to turn Stuart's luck against him :-)

> It was a very unusual game of it! I think it was the very first time that a team won by killing off all of the opponents, rather than planting a flag for victory. Not only that, but StuartF did ALL of the killing-off (or at least, finishing-off). Doubly unique, if you see what I mean.
> Of course, StuartF was only able to do this thanks to the efforts of his teammate BobR being so woefully inept: I got hold of their flag without too much difficulty, but then just couldn't get anywhere near returning home with it. I spent my so-called return journey going round in circles, dodging MichalK just enough to stay alive. "I blame the cards". Eventually, MichalK tired of the dance, saw that I my own ineptitude was delaying my return enough anyway, and went to join the defence against StuartF and HannesS. So StuartF killed HIM off, too.
> Mind you, if Stuart hadn't struck them down, they'd have died of old age (rust?) anyway before I got home with their flag. And HannesS must have done his part in softening up Josep, Dave and Michal for Stuart's glory, since it was Hannes that got the MVP award.

> That will change placings in the Eternal League and the 2009 League quite a bit, I'd think, with StuartF returning to the topspot. Give AllanM time to note this and update the tables, then you can view the tables under "photos" file. If it says 26/04/09, then it's the latest. I gather this photo file is only open to registered members? So, if you're one of those members of the ftf club who isn't also a member on the site, you'll need to sign up to the site to have access.
