FANTASY: 2010 Sapphire 1

Post by Chocola » Wed May 12, 2010 6:13 am

Rules:
-Pick 7 characters from 7 tiers in the Spoiler to form a team for that round.
-You will pick exactly 1 character from each tier.
-Each character will score points based on the criteria listed below.
-You also need to predict the Exhibition Match winner.
-In Match 7, you will also need to predict the Necklace winner.
-When posting your team, copy and paste the character names to retain macrons.
-If you fail to submit a team for a match, then your previous team will be used with no penalty.
-If you change your team, then you will have to edit or delete your previous team so there is only one of your entry per thread.

Scoring:
-A character's SDO gain that round will be converted to points.
-If a character wins her match, she will get +3 points.
-If a character has the highest Votes For within her tier, she will get +5 points.
-If a character has the second highest Votes For within her tier, she will get +7 points.
-If a character has the third highest Votes For within her tier, she will get +10 points.
-If a character has the highest Votes Differential within her tier, she will get +2 points.
-If you predicted the Exhibition Match winner correctly, then you will get +10 points.
-If you predicted the Necklace winner correctly, then you will get +10 points.

Hints:
-If you don't know what SDO is, don't bother. Just predict the character with the 2nd most Votes For in her group.
-In the first round, SDO gain for all characters will be 0.
-Likewise, SDO gain will increase every match, which means scoring chance will also increase.
-If you are playing the SDO game, then use the link below to see the Sapphire Schedule.
-Another way of looking SDO is, "which character has a strong/weak schedule this period."
-Predicting the Exhibition Match correctly affects your score more than previous fantasy.
-If you are not TRE and you take more than 10 minutes to predict, then you're doing it wrong.

I'm not the least bit concerned about taking more than 10 minutes. I'm just looking to do better than my previous futile attempts.

I worry this method of Fantasy may be too complicated. I had to do quite a bit of number crunching to decide on a team, and even now I'm not satisfied. It definitely took more than 10 minutes, and I'm considering changing it.

Yeah. Turning predictions for who will win a match into a prediction of who will gain the most SDO is a very time consuming process if you do it by hand.

Wow, new format for Fantasy adds another element of surprise in my Fantasy, but nonetheless I will try hard.
Number crunching isn't my thing, just looking at recent statistics will help me decide. ^.^

Lol, I don't think you guys get it. The whole point is that if you do statistics perfectly you don't have a chance of winning and if you just randomly guess you still have a chance of winning.
