  1. Bench World Cup 2018

    I'm back, and it seems like I missed quite some action. Here we go: Group E - Round 2 - Final results Krisachiyama 2:0 Jejima (Brazil) (Costa Rica) England W 0:0 W England © Brazil ® W 1:0 W Brazil Uruguay W 1:0 D Denmark Denmark D 0:x L Argentina Argentina L x:x W Russia Nigeria W Ø:Ø W Nigeria Sweden L x:x W Colombia Poland L x:x L Sweden Australia D x:x L Saudi Arabia Panama © L x:x L Iran Costa Rica L x:x L Costa Rica ® I can't remember having ever seen something like the first two slots before: identical pairings with one player having a © and then the other having an ®. All teams won, so it's the ®-player player scoring a goal, which is Krisachiyama's Brazil. Then he scores another with Uruguay before first Jejima's and then his own chain is broken by Argentina. Kuroelwin 1:3 Finngall (Serbia) (Switzerland) England W 0:0 W Belgium Germany W 0:0 W Portugal Denmark © D 0:1 W Germany Russia W 0:1 W Switzerland ® Argentina L 0:0 L Poland Colombia W 1:0 D Senegal © Serbia ® L x:1 W Croatia Egypt L x:0 L Peru Costa Rica L x:0 L Tunisia Iran L x:0 L Costa Rica Saudi Arabia L Ø:Ø L Saudi Arabia Nothing happens until slot three when Finngall eeks out (Bench lingo) a last minute Kroos, followed by another goal courtesy of his ®-team Switzerland. After a fumble by both with Argentina and Poland, Kuroelwin closes the gap with a Columbia-goal but then his chain breaks with his ®-team, yielding another goal to Finngall for a 3-1 win with an unbroken chain - what a match!

    By the way, do you know what would happen if all six group matches end up 1:1? (FIFA rules, not BWC)

  4. Forum Update Feedback, version 4.2

    That's strange, because the arrow is still there for me (although nearly invisibly grey when not moused-over). Weird. Now that arrow disappeared for me as well, although I didn't change or upgrade neither browser nor OS.

    Right. I searched the rules for it:

It feels a bit disloyal putting my representative team at the very end of the squad... But if they manage to upset Brazil, with even just a draw, I think I may be favourite in this match!

    That's why I don't count those phantom goals until they really happen. It looks a bit weird to me when a 2:2 turns into a 1:2.

    Group E - Round 1- all settled with still some minutes to play Jejima 1:0 Kuroelwin (Costa Rica) (Serbia) England © W 1:0 D Argentina Russia W 0:0 W Russia Argentina D 0:x L Germany Brazil D 0:x W England Sweden W :x Colombia Colombia 0:x W Serbia ® Denmark W 0:x W Denmark © Iran W 0:x W Iran Nigeria L 0:x L Costa Rica Costa Rica ® L x:x L Egypt Saudi Arabia L x:x L Saudi Arabia England's last-minute-goal didn't really matter - being Jejima's meticulously picked counterbalance team, he would have scored the match-winning goal either way, and might score one more with Sweden. Krisachiyama 0:1 Finngall (Brazil) (Switzerland) Brazil ® D x:1 W Belgium Uruguay W x:x L Germany Argentina D x:x W Croatia England W x:x Poland Poland x:x L Peru Nigeria L x:x D Portugal Denmark W x:x L Costa Rica Sweden W x:x D Switzerland ® Costa Rica L x:x Senegal © Panama © L x:x L Saudi Arabia Australia L x:x L Tunisia Like I said before this matchday, Finngall's fate was tied to Belgium's, and it's a tight 1:0 win with all chain slots broken but one.
  9. Bench World Cup 2018

    Wrong. Krisachiyama's chain won't be broken if Belgium loses. It's like I said: Belgium's match result will reflect Finngall's as well. Please show respect to your Refyoji and double-check before contradicting.

    Group E - Round 1- standings after 62 minutes Jejima 0:0 Kuroelwin (Costa Rica) (Serbia) England © :0 D Argentina Russia W 0:0 W Russia Argentina D 0:x L Germany Brazil D 0:x England Sweden :x Colombia Colombia 0:x W Serbia ® Denmark W 0:x W Denmark © Iran W 0:x W Iran Nigeria L 0:x L Costa Rica Costa Rica ® L x:x L Egypt Saudi Arabia L x:x L Saudi Arabia Due to Germany's failure, Kuroelwin will definitely score no goals. If England lose their key-bout, it will be a 0-0 draw, otherwise Jejima will win. Krisachiyama 0:0 Finngall (Brazil) (Switzerland) Brazil ® D 0: Belgium Uruguay W ?:x L Germany Argentina D 0:x W Croatia England :x Poland Poland :x L Peru Nigeria L x:x D Portugal Denmark W x:x L Costa Rica Sweden x:x D Switzerland ® Costa Rica L x:x Senegal © Panama © x:x L Saudi Arabia Australia L x:x Tunisia It was a nailbiter for Krisachiyama! Had his R-team Brazil won, the match would have been his with a score ranging from 2:0 to 4:0. But even though Finngall fumbled with Germany, he now has a matchball: whatever Belgium will do, it will be Finngall's result in this match as well.

    Nachos are quite polular right now.

    Group E - Round 1- Halftime standings Jejima 0:0 Kuroelwin (Costa Rica) (Serbia) England © :0 D Argentina Russia W 0:0 W Russia Argentina D 0: Germany Brazil : England Sweden : Colombia Colombia : Serbia ® Denmark W 0:0 W Denmark © Iran W 0:0 W Iran Nigeria L 0: Costa Rica Costa Rica ® :0 L Egypt Saudi Arabia L 0:0 L Saudi Arabia They keep each other in check pretty well. All the winners are neutralized, and the losers far down the bench. However, Jejima has a possible advantage with England as his counterbalance team in the first slot - even a draw by the Three Lions will score the first goal for him. Krisachiyama 0:0 Finngall (Brazil) (Switzerland) Brazil ® : Belgium Uruguay W : Germany Argentina D 0:? W Croatia England : Poland Poland :0 L Peru Nigeria L x:0 D Portugal Denmark W x: Costa Rica Sweden x: Switzerland ® Costa Rica x: Senegal © Panama © x:0 L Saudi Arabia Australia L x: Tunisia Krisachiyama's chain is bound to be broken by Nigeria, but the match is still pretty wide open. There's a goal looming for Finngall with Croatia unless his chain gets broken before that, but Krisachiyama might even be leading by three goals after the first two slots.

    On the beach or in the rice fields perhaps, but even Hakuho would never appear at the airport with shorts and tshirt.
