Congratulations to shanarkoh for winning Division 1 for the second time in a row!! He has played since Season 2 and has been in Division 1 a total of 5 times. He joins Xevoc (9x winner), eunck (3x winner), and mikaeljt (2x winner) as the only players to have won Division 1 more than once (4 single winners). Two other multiple winners were also playing in Division 1 this season. It was a 4vp finish between shanarkoh and newcomer resnick for the title.

Re: TM Tour Season 20 Signup to Begin Soon
Well due to the length between the 1st round and the semifinal 8, I'd venture to guess that not all players on the stated teams are available to continue. So those 32 players would need to be contacted to see if they would be interested in continuing and if not, they would be allowed to fill in the empty spots with others from the same country.

Re: TM Tour Season 20 Signup to Begin Soon
The US didn't make the semifinals. cry I lobbied SW to make the semifinals top 16 and the finals top 4 as is usually done in many tournaments using 4p games.

I added that message to the 1st post in another attempt to get someone to finish the job. Perhaps someone from 1 of the semifinal teams will volunteer.

F&I is more difficult, especially 5p. I think the test league of 5p games with 6p in a league was really solid. Much more solid in terms of who won with skill than 4p. The reason why is due to the extra Final Scoring tile and only having 3 of each vp FAV tile. Whomever doesn't get the vp tiles has to focus more on either faction vp ability or econ FAVs to make sure they hit 1st and 2nd on network and final tiles.

Of course, the last time we tried the extrapolation thing we had 247 after 24 hours and wound up with 1097, so I'm guessing "1000-1100" is a better estimate. We'll see, though.

I pulled a list of this for the top couple of divisions going back to the beginning of the tournament. This is everyone eligible to return in D1 or D2, plus all people staying in or dropping to D3 (but not people who left after winning D4). Columns are name, group id, and division/ranking in that division.

Thrar 605 2-2
jbrier 393 2-2

Thanks Steve! How difficult would it be to pull up a list of D4 winners that never returned? Also, I added the last season played in the last column.

When I was adding the last season played, it is interesting to note that in the 1st Season of TM Tour, players rated about 1135 were placed in Division 2.

Regarding LoloHelico, wow, he took an almost 2 year hiatus from playing on Snellman at all! He's got 18 games running right now and finished another 20-30 since he came back. Some of the players in the list have still played some games here and there, but the majority haven't touched Snellman since they left.

Re: TM Tour Season 20 Signup Open for Games on Aug 1
Yeah, that's how LoloHelico came to my attention - I put this list together a season or two ago (its far easier to update it each season than to build it from scratch) so I knew the name, and then he wound up in one of my games.

In terms of other unusual tournament histories, consider QBert. Seasons played: 1, and 18. That is all.

Re: returning D4 players. I haven't bothered to do so yet because a) I don't expect there to be very many (as, historically, sitting after winning a group meant losing a promotion so most people didn't), and b) due to the exponential nature of the tournament structure it requires manually checking 150ish different divisions - more than was required to assemble the list above in the first place. But I'll see if I can find time sometime this weekend.

LOL! Wow! Such a long hiatus. Then he jumps back in and faces a league filled with 1300+ players (save 1 other), and he doesn't even finish last in the league. I'm guessing the other players in the league didn't focus on him too much and allowed him to do better than expected.
