How about a little bit update?
adam you know you wont lose a game in houston why would you sit
The City Championship Season isnt over yet with 95% reported...Wait till after, the 2nd week in Jan. :thumb:
As of Dec 23, 2007 im 1787.51 (Masters: #2 Texas, #2 North America, #2 Global)
Out of curiosity, how many tournaments have you attended????
I am willing to bet 10+, am I close?
I am not meaning anything by this, I am just trying to add numbers up for something....
do i know u?
2-3 more weeks to go until NA Cities rankings will be added
Battle Roads: 5 Events
City Championships: 8 City Championships
But the number of events doesnt really matter if your not doing well in them. Out of ALL of those Tournements, only 2 I have had not had a 4-1 record or higher in....And in all but 2 of those I have placed T4.:thumb:
*wishes I could go to that many tournaments*
I'd have atleast 1790....nope, only been to 1 measly tournament....went undefeatd 6-0.....lol, and thats my season....hahahahaha
But keep it up dude......
Just getting the Cities template ready...as it is coming to an end for NA in nine days.
you probably should
Yay! There over! Now all i have to do...is wait for the 2 I played in this weekend at Houston...to update!
1 of those (Saturday's) got uploaded Saturday night. I'll do Houston probably tomorrow.
*Goes to check everything over* :tongue:
Houston now uploaded. All mine are in now.
Time to update! things are getting interesting again! NC/SC all results are in from cities!
International CC's are not over yet. They will run untill the end of this month.
I did a quick count of North American Top 100 standings in Masters (that's my group, which is why I did it).
There are more states that had two, and a bunch that had 1, but I did not include those because they didn't have anyone in the Top 50. The states which are tied for number are sorted by the rank of those in their state. For example Florida and Texas both had 6, but Florida had 3 in the Top 10 and TX only had 1. TX is ahead of OH because while they both had 1 in the T10 and 3 in the T25, TX had two more in the T50 while OH had none.
It seems large populous states with multiple borders have an advantage. This lets the good players stay away from eachother while not restricting the amount of tournaments they can go to. Bob in Miami can clean up while Joe up in Talahassee can attack Georgia.
Now, you still have to be good to go and win consistently, so I am not bashing players from those states.
But what I do want to say about this is that I feel that this means that in the bigger tournaments, like Regionals and Nationals, the players from these states might not make as good of a showing. A group of 4 really good players from MA for example, none of whom are in the top 25, but are in the 26-100 ranking, might be better than FL's top players, but because they compete with eachother they keep their ratings down.
Again I'm not bashing anyone I know Bobby is amazing, don't know the other guys but I'm sure they're good too. I just used FL as my example because its got the most.
So in summary, I don't think that these numbers will be an accurate prediction of the results of Nationals.
Let's see what happens.
Texas would have had seven if I had not made a last minute decision to play a fun deck of Walrein/Absol. It sent me out of the top 100. 69th to 165.
Here are the number of players by state in the top 100 for the other age divisions in NA as of 1/8/08. I didn't list states that had only 1 or the 10 entries without a location.
5 ON Canada
3 BC Canada
2 AB Canada
4 ON Canada
2 BC Canada
