MrNumbers vs. Nicholas Mystikos
3:2
285:243

Taking a look at the game in terms of the five elements:

Cities: MrNumbers completed a couple of decently-sized cities early in the game and it was obvious from then on that he would win cities comfortably, so I didn't try to counter this.

Roads: Similarly, but in reverse, I completed a couple of pretty big roads early and felt that I had this point won for most of the game. The difference was only four points in the end, so it was closer than I thought.

Cloisters: Only one cloister tile came out in the first half of the game, and I drew it, claimed it and completed it. I later claimed one or two more, and used my abbey in an insta-complete situation to prevent MrNumbers from being able to do the same, because that was the only such hole on the board at that time. So I knew I was comfortable on cloisters.

Farms: It's been ages since I'd played with abbey and mayor (MrNumbers' chosen expansion) so I'd forgotten the strategies of farming with barns a bit. I placed several farmers early on different farms that seemed likely to join up and become the main farm (which they did). I tried to set up a barn placement but MrNumbers is too smart/lucky for that and he got the tile that created the field corner and put his own barn in it. I got some points when my original three farmers ended up connecting to the barn farm, and later got my own barn onto the same farm, but MrNumbers did much better later in the game at connecting his farmers to it when it was worth more. This was the main difference in the farm score and the overall game score.

Game: The scores were very close for the whole game (within 10 points either way). My expansion, Mage and Witch, was pretty much a non-factor because six of the eight tiles were drawn within the first 15 tiles of the game. I was feeling good about winning the game overall until the last third, when MrNumbers started to score big from farmers joining the barn farm. I joined a couple and tried to join more but didn't get the tiles I needed.

Congratulations MrNumbers!

Literally nothing to add to what Nicholas Mystikos said :)
The only thing - I shouldn't take these two 6-points farms, I should take some roads instead (and I had such opportunity). But OK, not bad for the first time :D

Just to let you guys know that Jere has contacted me over the weekend and has informed me that, due to his new family circumstances, he will be unable to compete. I will not be replacing him at this stage of proceedings, so the league is now reduced to 5 players for this season only.

Does this means that we will have only 1 player to be relegated to lower league? Or still from 5 players 2 will be relegated?

Only 1 player will become eligible for relegation now. Next season 2 from the Championship will replace Jere and one other (Danisthirty probably).  >:D
