How's it going with scheduling 3rd place game? It'd be interesting to see how that match rolls out...

Almost scheduled. It seems that this game will take place on this weekend.

Very good. I'm waiting for the outcome of this game to publish the final Elo ratings.

On Saturday MrsNumbers had the last match against Farin for 3rd place in World Cup 2015. Game ended after first 60 tiles: Farin gave up, motivating it by too many mistakes made by him and too big points difference till that point. So the final score is taken from projected points: 174 vs. 74.

Congratulations MrsNumbers, and commiserations farin. I for one know exactly how it feels to go behind almost straight away and find yourself unable to claw anything back. I like to think I would always see the game through to its natural conclusion regardless of how badly things went, but better luck next time all the same...

Now that the winner of the final game has been announced, here is the final ranking:





Positions 17 - 40 were occupied by those who were eliminated before reaching the knock-out stage. The exact order was determined by group position, group points and then overall PD (points difference).

Positions 9 - 16 were occupied by those who reached the knock-out stage but lost their Round 1 game. The exact order was determined by group position, group points and overall PD as above. The same applies to positions 5 - 8 (losing quarter-finalists) which were determined according to the same criteria.

Positions 3 & 4 were occupied by the losing semi-finalists. There was a separate game played using the same tiles as the final to determine 3rd position. This game was abandoned by farin leaving MrsNumbers to claim 3rd.

Positions 1 & 2 were occupied by the winner and loser of the final. Well done to Merlin_89 who took the top spot! :(y)

Many thanks to everyone who took part; I hope it was fun for you and I look forward to competing against you again soon in our next online competition! This will be announced in the new year...

There will be a small prize/ memento for everyone who took part. There will also be other spot prizes which are yet to be announced (other than the "first group to finish" prize). So, if you've received something from me in the past then you will receive something from me again (unless you've changed your address - please let me know if this is the case!) Otherwise, expect to receive a PM from me sometime soon asking for your address; I promise you'll get something before Christmas (*)... :@

Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2016! :D

Brilliant work. Thanks for your efforts Jéré! :(y)

Nice (and kind of surprising) to finish the year in the top 5! ;D

Yes, this is certainly something to consider.

I already thought of a way to share my Elo spreadsheet via Google Drive or something similar but it is enormous and not easy to read. So a dedicated thread with more frequent updates could be a solution.

Thanks MrNumbers, I've corrected that typo now.

6. 2015 World Cup
This is the single item on my "to do" list that I am most embarrassed about as it's been getting on for a year since this tournament finished and I still have a big box of stuff to send out to people (this doesn't include the trophy which was sent directly from Carcking to Merlin_89 I believe). :-[ Hopefully it will prove to have been worth waiting for when I do eventually send it all out.

I do have some stuff to send out, I just need to sort out who gets what, package it all up and take it to the post office. And find about £80 for the postage.
