Also, thank you Dan for organising this challenge. I participated in 2017, and i was really keen on participating again in 2018. I really enjoyed the rush to get in the answers as quickly as possible :)

Well done dronedrone for a thoroughly tough contest.  Based on your response speeds, I'd love to know what your technique was!  I only came close to your fastest response time once and that was because I hit refresh on the 'unread posts' page a moment before going to lunch.  Based on your times at the start of the contest, I feared I was out of the running, simply because I was too slow with other commitments (like having a job!) But it seems you had a couple of days where you had similar and I was on holiday.

@Decar: I think you may be confusing dronedrone with Piet Agoras as it was actually him who posted several of the fastest response times (including more than one sub-minute response! :o). While Piet Agoras faded a bit in the second half of the competition, dronedrone's consistency is what enabled him to generate so many points even if his individual responses weren't always as quick.

Oh dear! Let's hope that isn't a question in next year's quiz, I'll get two members confused :(

So Piet, how were you so blooming fast!?!

By being in the office when Dan posts his questions :)

(Having a seperate Chrome-window with 3 tabs open helps also. One with this thread, one with the search page ready, one with a DM ready with subject and receipient already filled in. As soon as I see the mail coming in, I go to the first tab, hit refresh, read the question, go to the second tab, fill in the keyword, hit search, scan trough results, open third tab, fill in answer, hit send. )

Second half of the quiz, I was working on location and there I couldn't answer immediatly.

Allright! Looking forward to this :)

I'll take the phantom.

I'm in.
But I have a few questions...

Isn't it weird that you can win the game, but lose 1-4 in the league?
Shouldn't it be more logical that a win would award 4 points? That you are at least assured of a 'league-draw' when you win the game?

How are the final standings calculated? The logical thing would be
1. Match Wins
2. Match Points
4. Game PD
Or will it be another way?

Will there be a pyramid? Or will it be more linear? How many people will promote/drop?

The purpose of this tournament is to get as many people as possible playing Carcassonne again. We have put our heads together and come out with the idea that there is more to 'success' than winning matches. The game itself has 'small battles' inherent in it (eg a fight over winning a big city, or a farm battle). All we have done is extended the idea to make it more fun for people to play without worrying too much about always losing. There are other goals namely, changing your game to win league points and not matches. We are currently testing it out and it seems to be quite successful.

The tables will run on 'league points' with the top two out of 6 getting promoted and the bottom 2 getting relegated. The idea is that we end up with several divisions full of people of roughly the same ability who want to play and are not frightened off from playing by the 'experts'.
Thank you TheSteveAllen for this quick answer. Now I understand better where the idea is coming from  :(y)

Winning response time was: 37s :o :o :o (<--- even more ridiculous)

I could have done it quicker, but I needed to check if my mind was right :p
