Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Post by boson »

A thread for discussion of Learned League season 86, starting August 2020. All board members are welcome to discuss questions. I you would like a referral to play in this invitation-only league, don't hesitate to ask in this thread.

Remember: NO DISCUSSIONS OF ANY LIVE QUESTIONS HERE. Wait until the results of the previous day are released before making even the most innocuous-seeming comment.
-----------------------------------
For those interested in joining a private rundle, you can play against fellow board members for a second match a day. PSA: The deadline is tomorrow night!!!

Bumping this thread as a final call: Registration deadlines are Wednesday 11:59 PM. If you want into either the junior or senior rundles, you have to have the Premier level, and you just barely have time for an upgrade (via electronic payment, if Thorsten is processing them quickly).

Presently the JBoardLite team is at six members, so it will take two (new) people to join. Similarly, we have 6 registrations in the Jboardom3 rundle (KnobelR, WeyhmillerJ, WhelchelC, PrussC, LiptonM, BawdonG) so join today and don't be the odd-one-out.

I just did a roster check and we are still at six on the JBoardLite group. I wish I could help out! I would have no problem receiving beatdowns but I don't think I could have switched anyway as the host.

PSA - any late wannabe entries to the Lite group need to get on JBoardom, it will help you build character :). We'll try to get teams squared up next time.

ETA - I didn't want to make a new post, but I'm the first to post since the release of the new schedules - from the depths of Taiga, I am in E Division 1. The schedules sure came out fast!

LL86 rundles/schedules are up...C Magnolia is a single rundle this season with 38 (!) players. Will be interesting, first time I've been in a rundle where I won't play everyone.

That could be partially my fault. (Don't know whether you'll praise or denounce me for your landing in B.) I'm sitting out this season, so that opened up a spot in B Serengeti, Serengeti being our branch's new league.

Good luck and have fun!

Looks like we have 8 (one-time) boardies in A Magnolia. Some don't frequent here anymore, but it still is fun to play against familiar names.

The Jboardom3 private rundle is set. Sorry to Teapot37 who was the odd one out, and wasn't able to avenge his close loss to bomtr in LL84.

PrussC is back in AMag and in the private rundle. Since she and I have played this private rundle often, and since we have been in AMag over 10 seasons together, the number of matches we've played each other is getting astronomical. My current record against her: 19W-20L-5T. Can't get much closer than that!

No difference to me though thank you for the possible explanation. I'm .409 in B and .578 in C so I expect to experience both levels in Serengeti as well. I started play in LL69 and still have yet to forfeit or get a 0(0) although I've had some 0(1)s & a couple of after 9:00 warning emails to submit.

I fell down to the basement for this season. Maybe the new rundle will boost my performance.

Was there a ronin announcement between 85/86 that I missed or did it not happen?...

I think the roster of ronin is full for the time being. Last season in Piedmont we had BahnamanS; this season it's BrooksS - not much of a change in quality of player there.

To be clear to the newcomers, no discussion means no comments at all. Don’t say how many you got right or if you thought they were easy or hard. After the results are posted, they can be discussed.

What time do the new questions typically get posted?

I opened them last night just after 1am ET so I assumed the new ones for today would be up at the same time. Or maybe it's not an automatic thing and it's just whenever Thorsten releases the new Match Day?

I've seen them as early as shortly after 2 AM (ET) and as late as 3:30, but usually in the 2:30-3:00 range.

It seems to me that while 2 AM Eastern used to be the typical time for the new day's questions, these days it is just about 3 AM. Probably they appear earlier on days where there is no scoring to be done.
I'm smart and I want respect.
