Just a reminder to everyone playing. Q1 starts at 0710 CDT Saturday. You need to get your picks in before then. Good luck to everyone.

Updated after Le Mans. Could've snuck up another couple of places if Vinales hadn't let me down. Then again, I'm betting everyone here had him in the top 3. Very much not liking having to pick before the grid is set.  :csm:

Oh, well.  'Twas a fun time on top.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

So here's a fun fact: I have a slight lead for the EOE cup, but everyone without a DNS -- motodog, melville, kneescrubber, and coqui -- is ahead of me in the overall rankings.

I must be making good money between P11 and P15.

5 in the top 75. Pretty darn good imho; considering there is only 6 out of 8 of us playing seriously.

Speaking of scoring, here's something I think qualifies as irony.

Remember we had the discussion about changing our rules to allow our group to make picks after qualifying without a penalty? I was one who raised the issue that although I'd rather make picks after qualifying, it could create a problem for me because I am in two groups and if they were scored differently because of a rules change after the season started then I'd be penalized. Well, we decided not to change our rules and allow picks after qualifying. So then the other league I'm in, the RevZilla employees group, DID change the rules to allow making picks after qualifying without a penalty.

So now I'm getting killed in that league because everyone else is free to choose riders after qualifying while I'm making picks before qualifying to avoid a penalty in this group.

Of course that's a poor excuse, because I'm not doing all that well in the EOE Cup this year, either. But I've thrown in the towel in the other one.

Guess it's just not my year.

Saw this coming so I bailed early. It just didn't fit my schedule to go over the data on a Friday night or early Saturday morning. Still enjoy going over the data where we total our own points, but no prizes and no super cool trophy.

So far, so good. Like everyone else, though, I'm missing the old game.

Interesting experiment this week. I'll be off the grid from Thursday through the weekend. Put in my picks today. We'll see if knowing FP1 & FP2 makes a difference (FP3 never matters to me on the left coast -- that's sleepy-time).

Seems like the EOE Cup is turning into a battle for second.

Updated August 26. Note that after each race I upload a new image of the standings, so any of the past updates show the current standings, not the standings as they were back then.

Another note: For me, at least, the forum seems to be showing a cached image instead of the current one: http://www.coffeericeandbeans.com/imageserver/2019%20EOE%20Cup%20standings.png. Maybe I need to start doing this differently. If you're seeing Team HMFaceplant with 2400 points, that's the current version.

This Motogoat stuff is complicated.

I'm second in the EOE Cup. A distant fourth in the RevZilla league. And 11th overall. All of the people ahead of me in the RevZilla league are behind me in the overall standings. How is that even possible?

Because I am playing under three sets of rules:

Choose 15 in EOE Cup, penalty for choosing after qualifying.
Choose 10 in RevZilla league, no penalty for choosing after qualifying.
Choose 10 in overall standings, penalty for choosing after qualifying.

I think I'll just stop paying attention and check at the end of the year to see how I did.

Yeah, I've been behind most of the EOE crowd in the overall since the beginning of the season. I'm apparently pretty good at picking spots 11 through 15.

The difference between this game and the others we've done is there is no advantage here for picking well at the top of the grid. Each spot carries exactly the same weight. You get the same points for picking 15th correctly that you get for 1st. It's working to my advantage at the moment, but I don't really like it.

I got the top four in the correct order in Thailand. The MotoGP rider's title may be settled, but the EOE Cup looks set to go down to the very end, like last year.

By the way, shout outs to motociclista and motodog who are 11th and 25th, respectively, in the overall. Making EOE look good. In the overall, I'm in the mid-50s. 56th, I think.

There's another small league of refugees from the motogp game that is also doing the 1st through 15th rule and I joined them for the heck of it when I signed up. I have the lead, so EOE represents there too.  Maybe Team Coqui should sign up to that group real quick and suddenly appear in first place (evil grin).

Another by the way -- I almost forgot there was a race this weekend. Don't ferget yer pix. And also, remember it's Japan. The schedule will be running earlier than normal.


EDIT:  Unless you're motociclista. You should go ahead and forget.    ;)

There's always a decent chance of that, Squeezer. Always.

I still just can't get over the fact that I'm 11th overall and fourth in the RevZilla league. Screwy MotoGoat rules.

I guess Australia was a tough week for everyone.* I had a pretty bad score and still moved back into the lead (narrowly).

* Of course especially for those who had to ride in strong, gusty winds on a cold track at high speeds knowing their tires might not be up to temperature and might hurl them into a gravel trap at extreme velocities. Almost as hard as pursuit of the EOE Cup.

Just making an announcement that this is my DNS week.  I don't have my motogoat login saved on my laptop and was outta town.

That said, I think the default listing they give might be better than my usual VR46 to win choice.

Edit:  If you don't make any pick whatsoever, the race disappears from your results.  Sepang is not an option now.

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

And team HMFaceplant retakes the lead!

For those of you not closely following the stats, let me point out what a wild ride it's been for Team HMFaceplant at the three fly-away rounds. A season-high (and amazing) 182 points in Japan. A season-low 94 points in Australia. And an impressive 168 points in Malaysia, second-best result of the season, to surge back into the lead going into the final round.

Also, although Motodog is third in our league, he's fifth overall at Motogoat, the best ranking of any EOE Cup competitor.

And team HMFaceplant retakes the lead!

Also, although Motodog is third in our league, he's fifth overall at Motogoat, the best ranking of any EOE Cup competitor.

get it Squeeze  :bigok:

We're passing each other on every corner. Motociclista may be positioned for the slipstream on the final straight.

I had both Crutchlow and Zarco in the points, so I managed to survive that. What a kickass ride by Zarco.

Apparently you're a lot better at picking positions 1-10 than 11-15.

Nothing wrong with my 11 - 15 picks. Don't appear to be getting credit for them...

You're getting credit. Remember that the overall rankings are based on picking the top 10. The EOE Cup ranking are based on picking the top 15. So that's why you have 2606 points and rank fifth overall in the global rankings but you have 3621 points in the EOE Cup and are third in our league.

Just as a comparison, you are 26 points ahead of me (2606 to my 2580) overall and 58 points behind me (my 3679 to your 3621) in the EOE Cup. The difference has to be in the 11-15 positions.

Yeah, I'm another 100 points behind Team Coqui in the overall (1 thru 10) and ahead in EOE. It's got to mean that I've done pretty well with places 11 to 15. That kind of bugs me. Not enough to turn the trophy, mind you, as long as I don't run wide in the final corner.

I find it hard to believe that points from 11 - 15 would make that much difference for either of us. Motogoat is a bit screwy IMO. I hope we can find a better alternative for next years EoE...

Remember that picking the 15th-place finisher correctly gets you just as many points in this system as picking the winner correctly. That was not the case in the MotoGP.com system.
