I knew it was a right decision to have staked a claim on that local tree branch and have a rope ready at all times.

And now I can even legitimately blame Chiharu while I go kill myself too. Excellent.

Well as you can see from the results thread, lots of interesting upsets and rage.

I don't like playing the guessing game. Statistics don't mean squat in this contest anymore, and neither does my gutt feeling...because you never know wth is going to happen until after a few matches to see what the RM faction will manipulate this time.

You know if your theory about Shinku for Ruby is correct, "Osaka" is going to have to get some victories during that period...since she faces Shinku in round 1. And frankly, I'd like to see "Osaka" win. No more 0-63 girls.

What are you talking about Demi.? Juice and my predictions are entirely based on statistics, and we're doing quite well. You're just bitter ever since your favorite character wasn't "dominating" anymore.

Doing well based on what? The simulation? Or based on other people participating in Fantasy? Both will tank by the end, so I don't see how that's a legitimate gauge.

Nearly 1/4 of all matches this round alone were upsets.

If anything, how terrible the simulation will do this period is probably the most credible thing to determine just how much of a guessing game this is - After four periods, I'de think it should be fairly accurate if results are even remotely consistent. And It's not like every round looks skewed...infact, if every match did look skewed(Consistently skewed) I might start believing it was a demographic switch...but the inconsistency from one match to the next...leads me to believe there is some one twisting the results to his desire.

It's not that statistics are not reliable, it's just that with the advent of tricky factions, statistics are less reliable. If you can read into the statistics well enough, you're still fairly well off. Rather, what the RM faction is doing is just adding another variable into this Fantasy equation, which is manipulation in the RM's favor. If say for example, ISML Fantasy started out with 90% statistics and 10% voting shifts, then now it's 80% statistics, 10% voting shifts, and 10% mindgames. It's all a matter of perspective. Some people can like this extra dimension, while some can't. I'll be frank; I'm kinda part of the latter group. Instead of quitting altogether though, I've learned to ignore it whenever I don't feel like dealing with it.
