    We had quite a few bugs last basho that we reported all over the place for Doitsuyama's (in)convenience so I thought I'd start a dedicated thread here. I'll start by informing Doitsuyama that the Seki-Toto banzuke page is showing the banzuke for TTT.

    It's not fair! We have no chance with @Fujisan in our team... ;)

    GTB Haru 2020- 118 entries !!

    I'm in. This wasn't as tricky as the last few, thank Jaybus. I see Doitsuyama is in there. I'll assume it's just to test the unusual banzuke conditions and not a return to gaming in general...

    Metasumo 2020

    It's time to start collecting entries for Metasumo 2020. In this simple game, you choose the GAMERS you think will score the most in the Superbanzuke Masters series. Go to this link and choose ONE player from each of the categories below: 1-5 6-10 11-20 21-40 41-80 81-120 121-200 201+ for a total of eight players. If you would like to choose one of the many recent promising new players WHO ARE NOT listed in the 2019 final standings, please place them in the 201+ category. Please post your picks in this thread. The deadline is shonichi of the Hatsu Basho 2019. The winner gets to be Fujisan's red hot date at the prom. The person who comes last will be forced to negotiate new pre-basho entry deadlines with Akinomaki to ensure that all players must enter several hours early, potentially missing a catastrophic late withdrawal, in order that they not inconvenience him personally by interrupting his shonichi lower-division sumo viewing for 5 minutes every ten basho or so. Good luck!

    Many thanks, Rando. We all know how busy you are!

    Norizo Cup Banzuke 2020.3

    Of course they don't make logical sense but life would be very dull if everything had to! In the main, the banzukes of these games follow our standard rules. I don't mind one lucky bugger getting catapulted from Makushita to sanyaku for winning yusho. No sleep lost! ;)

    The SB site is back at last. I still have to change the server and other stuff, but this will not affect you (or poor long-suffering Rando) anymore. The site is here: http://99998271.com/sb/ Please bookmark it as it is very useful for the SB. Many apologies for the break in service. FYI: @Randomitsuki

    Update on the Superbanzuke site situation. I had at first thought it was due to my not updating my new address on my credit card so I was waiting to see if the payment came out for this month. It did! So I was mystified. I have tried contacting the company but it is an automated nightmare and I just can't work out how to get through to speak to an actual human. Anyway, today on a hunch I did a search and discovered that the domain that was hosting my site had closed down, but the utter fools had not actually informed me about this. I am going to call them tomorrow at a support number I found on the same page and will give them hell (as they don't seem to mind continuing to take my money). Hopefully I'll get it all sorted out by next week.

    Norizo Cup Banzuke 2020.3

    Yeah I quite like these special rules. Paper Oyakata and Bingo have similar ones.

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    If you get the pre-basho right, and it is unorthodox, you can clean up. I remember you had Myogiryu (who got a lot of bonus points for beating both yokozuna) AND Tokushoryu in your PO line-up along with most of the popular picks, for example. That would guarantee Masters points. And perhaps you avoided some of the popular turkeys. Not actually checked your teams except a glance at PO so I can't be sure though. Good picking!
  12. As some will have noticed, the Sumotalk forum is now an ex-parrot. It was a long time coming as it has only been used in the last few years for the games talk. Most STI lads read this forum too so I am migrating here but will make two major changes as we are now guests rather than hosts. First, in order to avoid spamming this sub-forum, we will keep all future tournaments on this single thread and not create a new one each basho. Second, we are announcing a name change...we are bored of the old name and have decided to return to our centipedal roots. We used to be called the Centipedes back in the day, and the Japanese word for centipede is 'mukade' (muh-ka-day). I will be posting the Sumo Game stats for all Mukade-beya members here from now on. I actually hope some of the other gaming stables (or ichimon) from the Bench Sumo game follow suit and make a similar thread as I have always enjoyed the friendly rivalry. Now I just have to work out how to post my Excel file here. It doesn't work as it did over at STI. Watch this space.

    Thanks as always, Rando. I am still dealing with the domain people, but they are being very difficult, demanding all kinds of detailed information. Hope it will be sorted soon. I hadn't even noticed Jezz in the standings apart from in Oracle! Congrats!

    Congrats to Chisha on the Juryo yusho. And I must say again, hats off to Ronnie for pulling off an amazing feat: 15 AADs out of 15. I don't have the time to check it out, but I think this is pretty rare. I know I did it myself once, but I don't remember ever putting 15 in that column for anyone else in the time I have been doing these stats. He also walked the overall scoring by 3 points. Good lad! A proud Centipede he is! Don't have the energy to say much, but as you can see...we had an excellent basho. Day 15: Rank Record Points AADs Opp AADs 10 8+ 5- TB TB+ Who?

    @Joaoiyama had a great basho all round. A real gamer has joined the fold! :)

    Games Talk - Hatsu 2020

    Just glancing through the standings and it looks like me or Norizo for the Green. It is very close and the Norizo Cup will probably decide it so I expect him to win by a few points. In which case, Toku cost me the Green Mawashi!! Haha. If so, it was worth it. And as I said, I don't deserve it this time. Kotononami did pretty as well. If he hadn't sat out a few games, he could have won it.

    Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Lol! It's a nightmare being Yokozuna in that game. Everyone is biting your arse for kinboshi AND the luck factor is insane so in a bad-luck basho you get totally shafted no matter how well you pick. On the plus side, it is a lot easier to STAY at the rank than it is to stay at Ozeki. That said, no game stresses me out more. It is the only game I actually get upset about losing, even after all this time! ;)

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Hands down the best interview ever. Very funny and genuinely heartfelt and moving. I am no sentimentalist but he had me filling up a bit in the eyeballs section, both in the speech and also on seeing his reaction to beating the strongest ozeki with totally legit and strong sumo. One for the ages. Well done, lad.

    Games Talk - Hatsu 2020

    Well Toku cost me Odd yusho but I don't give a damn about that. Well done lad. I knew I should have put him top of all the games (seriously considered it last night) but I was too soft. No idea why I am always so utterly rubbish in SG on senshuraku. Getting a bit tired of Yamashiro beating me on that day when I am very often a mile ahead on points over the basho, as I was again this time. He picked some right idiots and got away with them too. Regardless, 10-5 is perfectly fine with me after a 4-4 start. Annoyed to just miss the top ten in PO and Bingo. And I managed to sneak into 10th in Oracle, where I was very poor this time. Roto and Quad were the best for Masters points. With Norizo still to come, I have almost 40 points, and I should get more in that game. So maybe 43 or 44. Considering I was not happy at all with my overall performance, that is a nice haul. No idea about green mawashi as I have had no time to check the standings of other players. I don't deserve it, that's for sure. Will do the SG stats later or perhaps tomorrow.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Exactly. Obviously no one is suggesting Tokushoryu is the future of sumo!

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Yeah I don't really mind it chaotic as well. For me what I hate is when there is multiple bullshit going on, like henka every other bout, 80% hiki-waza (pulling techniques), gyoji acting like little tyrants and injuries destroying any chance of good sumo. Kyushu 2019 was the worst I remember. This time I have seen quite a few decent bouts and some great fighting spirit from some rikishi. Only one gyoji has annoyed me so far. And while the injuries are there, they haven't had as much impact as last time on the quality. And, of course, I am rooting for the humble, down-to-earth Tokushoryu every day. I'd rather he win it than Hakuho any day of the week.
