    Wanted: banzuke making volunteers!

    I'd volunteer if I wasn't so rubbish at it in GTB...

    Aim For Yokozuna

    Only 7 entries this time, but I might try to find a way to boost that using some Hoshitori/UDH/Juryo Game dummy entries if I can find them.

    Aim For Yokozuna

    The deadline for this game is 2pm JST on the first day of the basho, the same as most of the other games based on the sekitori. Sansho: These are just an idea for the sansho. If anyone has any other ideas please feel free to post them. I tried to make them in a way that would represent the meaning of the real prizes... To get a prize, you must have a KK, and a quartet that have fought on all 15 days. Outstanding Performance Award (Shukun-sho): Rikishi who gets more separate wins/losses than the rikishi who wins the basho. Technique Award (Gino-sho): Get the best choice in 3 of the 4 groups, or the best sole options for the same division. Fighting Spirit Award (Kanto-sho): Take the numerical rank of the real rikishi on the banzuke, and compare with the numerical rank from their records after the basho. (Banzuke rank

    Aim For Yokozuna

    I've redone the W-L table using the "Max = Maximum Achievable, and Min = Median - (MaxAch - Median) = 2*Median - MaxAch" formula, and it looks a bit better now.

Fighting Spirit Award (Kanto-sho): Take the numerical rank of the real rikishi on the banzuke, and compare with the numerical rank from their records after the basho. (Banzuke rank – Basho rank) for Winners... for example last basho, Goeido (banzuke rank #32 - basho rank #2) = 30 elevator points. (Basho rank – Banzuke rank) for Losers... for example last basho Shunketsu (basho rank joint #15 - banzuke rank #9) = 6 elevator points. Highest total for all 4 rikishi gets the prize. Original Discussion (March 2007) Attempt 1 (May 2007) Attempt 2 (November 2007) I've had this game on my mind for a long while and would like to try and get it running again. But as Asashosakari said back then, more sample basho are needed to handle the number of entries we might have. Rules might just have to be changed completely, maybe even adding a rikishi to the W and L columns for each entry for a wider spread of entries. There's a risk of it becoming too similar to the Hoshitori and UDH games if there we have to select too many rikishi. I guess the question is: Is AFY still a game worth playing? If so, would any changes need to be made from the beta tests we did back then?

    Aim For Yokozuna

    I agree with you there, I tried to use one of the formulae suggested in this thread but on closer inspection I suspect I used the incorrect one in my haste looking at the results. I'll give it another go when I get some free time.

    Aim For Yokozuna

    Prizes would be thus: Shukun-sho: No prize given as no-one could beat Sakaritoba's 22-22 set of results. Gusoyama and Zenjimoto also had 22 wins. Gino-sho: Gusoyama for getting the perfect Makuuchi set of rikishi. Feginowaka 1 also got 2 out of 4 possible maximums (Makuuchi wins and Juryo losses). Kanto-sho: Feginowaka 3

    Aim For Yokozuna

    Here they are! I did them manually on Excel so I hope I didn't miss anything. Sakaritoba 44 (12-3) Gusoyama 42 (12-3) Feginowaka 3 42 (12-3) Feginowaka 1 41 (11-4) Zenjimoto: 40 (11-4) Vikanohara 36 (10-5) Chikenshitenku: 35 (9-6) Vikanosato 32 (8-7) Youchiken: 32 (8-7) Feginowaka 2 29 (7-8) Sakarizakura 28 (7-8) Vikanoyama 26 (6-9) Sakarikaze 25 (6-9) Mean Score: 34.76923077

    All sumo game yusho

    He chose Kotomitsuki (9-6), I chose Kaio (8-7) so I'm simply a jun-yusho. No idea what'll happen when it comes to the W-L records though.

    Le Carnage al Orange de Chaingangage

    As Kinta said though, the idea is just to survive through all 15 days. When Asashoryu was going on his zensho tears the option to choose Yokozuna was taken away to avoid people just choosing the top guys. At the same time, if someone wants to survive, and win Chaingang, they have to take that risk every so often in case a tie-breaker comes up. At least that's how I've always seen the game. That said, if the game was to have a special prize, I'd say it would be a great candidate for one of them.

    I get the feeling that the dismissing rather than retiring is the key factor here.

    Sumo Game Deadlines

    There aren't any on my current game list that aren't on this set of games (the only games besides the forum ones I haven't tried yet are Bookmaker, FAWL and Guess the Result... TipSpiel and Banzai I've left because I'm so bad at them), so I think we have all of them... As for Aim For Yokozuna, I've been considering ways to bring the game back for another tryout as it was a fun one when it was run in Japanese, but with the extra people it might house the format it used might not be as plausible. Plus it's pretty much a condensed version of both Hoshitori games in one, so it's not going to win any originality stakes.

    Maegashira game Aki Basho 2009

    I like that concept, take your time with it. :-(

    Maegashira game Aki Basho 2009

    2 questions: 1. Is this the same e-mail Maegashira game that I was so bad at I ended up retiring from? 2. When it says to create a SumoGames profile, is it just one for this game or are they eventually going to be linked through all the games on the server?

    Hakuhou in Puroresu brawl

    My guess is that they were simply slaps to the chest, a normal thing in puroresu... I'd link to a time where two guys went on slapping each other for minutes on end in a test of strength, but I can't quite remember the match participants...

    Kyushu Daily Games

    Looks like yesterday was a miracle day for me, a kinboshi and highest score in Toto, the only one to get a 4 in Quad, and a perfect 10 in Sumo Game. It's a shame I couldn't get back from work in time to enter Bench Sumo last thursday or it could have been a GBL for like my first time ever.

    Sekitori-Toto discussion for Kyushu 2008

    And with 2-4-1 so far and only 5 KK in 28 basho (only 1 being with more than 8 wins) I don't think that'll be happening too often. That said, is there a list of kinboshi that have been won in this game? I seem to have one in my records, but I can't find whether it's from Toto or Oracle, or the basho I won it... possibly around Kyushu 2007 going by the chronology of the records I have. It's a great feeling knowing I'm on top of a game I suck at though, even if it's for one day.

    Toyonoshima

    That's explained by the fact that Kotooshu won that yusho, and Aminishiki beat him...The time Takatoriki won the yusho from M14 he won the shukun-sho as well as the two people who beat him were yokozuna.

    Trio entry

    I'm using IE7 acd I didn't have this problem last basho.... I'll look for an update as well as search for the solution though. Thanks to both of you (Neener, neener...) I managed to use the Your Account link to get to the login screen, so hopefully I'll be alright for the rest of the basho. Still getting the error messages on just about every other page though...

    Trio entry

    I'm trying to enter my Equipe B (2-1) entry for Trio, but I can't seem to sign in to the forum. I get this message... "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/infosumo/www/info/header.php:20) in /home/infosumo/www/info/modules/Forums/posting.php on line 403". Line 567 appears when I press the Entree link. What can I do?

    2008 Aki Basho Kumi-Yoso-Banzai-Kongo

    Thanks for that. While the last basho was one of my worst ever, knowing that I'll be slipping down the banzuke on these games (even though I generally don't do too well in them) because I didn't know that just adds to it. (Scratching chin...)

    YYSB - Kyushu basho 2008 - New banzuke

    Might just be me, but shouldn't Tamanaogijima be O1e as the only KK Ozeki with the rest moving down a position?
