    Haru 2020 Superbanzuke Masters Series Results

    This might be true. But tell this to the 300+ players this basho whose gino-sho score was even lousier...
  2. Hiya! All SB game results are now in, so the results for our bimonthly Green Mawashi race are fresh off the press. The basho without audience was hotly contested in the sumo gaming scene with four players scoring north of 40 Masters points. In the end, Norizo (55.19) barely managed to hold the upper hand over closest pursuer Kishikaisei (53.50). That's the eleventh Green Mawashi for the Japanese gaming legend, one short of Pandaazuma's current mark. Norizo won Ozumo Bingo Game and finished among the Top 3 in Hoshitori Game.Kishikaisei receives his first ever Masters sansho, the shukun-sho for finishing second overall and being the strongest player with two yusho under his belt (in both the regular and the upside down Hoshitori Game).Ganzohnesushi gets his second career gino-sho for balanced scoring in daily games (e.g., a jun-yusho in Sumo Game) and pre-basho games (e.g., 7 points in Juryo Game).Finally, Flohru enlarged his increadible collection of kanto-sho for scoring in eight different games. It's already his eleventh(!) Fighting Spirit Prize, a new record for Masters sansho.Congratulations to all the winners! Full results Also updated were the standings for the World Championship. Norizo jumped into the top spot in front of Kishikaisei. Hatsu winner Jejima falls back to third place.

    Name it - The Day After...

    Many of you are probably aware of the concept mono no aware. It could be roughly described as being both sad and fond of how things change over time. As you brought up the notion of sadness yourself, I humbly (and in jest) sujest: Sumono no aware; or Mono-ii no aware

    Name it - The Day After...

    You mean something along those lines of Zetigeist, Weltschmerz, and Schadenfreude which made it into international lingo? How about the nice (and rather unique, I believe) German word "Durststrecke" (the literal tranlsation would be something like a "passage of thirst").
  5. Hiya, please spread the viral and highly infectious Makushita Game by considering your participation in, if not the total domination of this game. The yusho winner will not win a face mask this time. I hope the banzuke will be available soon (unfortunately, I haven't sent it to Doitsuyama before an hour ago due to time constraints). Stuff for registration, rules, etc. can be found at http://makushita.sumogames.de

    Invitation for Makushita Game Haru 2020

    Final standings: The MsGame yusho was almost decided by Day 12 which would have set an all-time record. However, it took Asapedroryu one more day to seal the deal and achieve one of the most decisive yusho wins in the history of this game with a rare 14-1 record. Jun-yusho honors go to Ozeki Asashosakari with an 11-4 record. Speaking of records, with an average of 7.65 win points we were very close to the sweet spot, so no adjustments are necessary - just look at the rightmost column of the results page to see how you fared. The Sekiwake duet of Tenshinhan and Andrasoyamawaka both were up for Ozeki promotion. Tenshinhan cut the requirements with ease, having a triplet of 12-3, 11-4, and 9-6 (all as Sekiwake). Andrasoyamawaka missed out on the 31 win requirement over three basho, but should get the nod if the scores double digits in his next tournament. Yusho winner Asapedroryu also receives the shukun-sho (for picking 7-0 Nishikifuji and 6-1 Asabenkei) and the kanto-sho (71 wins). The gino-sho goes to Shatsume whose 26.02 gino-sho score outdid everybody else with ease (the tricky thing for Shatsume was to straddle the KK line which he did). He was the only player to pick 5-2 Okinofuji, the only player to pick 4-3 Kizenryu, and the only player to pick 4-3 Kotohayato. Omedetou! That's it for Haru Basho - I am happy for having so many players this time around, and of course I hope that you'll consider returning in May! Thanks for reading.

    Invitation for Makushita Game Haru 2020

    Standings after Day 10: Asapedroryu has been in command over the last few days, sporting a noticeable leading margin in front of Yokozuna Andoreasu. Other player near the top will need some extra oomph in their final two rounds of bouts. Standings are incredibly lop-sided with almost all players in the upper half on the banzuke aiming for kachi-koshi, and almost all players in the lower half aiming for make-koshi. (Almost) needless to say, the Yokozuna as well as all three Ozeki flock together near the very top of the standings. To see your current win/loss estimate, add 1.5 points to your win point column and round down half-points. That being said, that dreaded line currently runs between Ariakenoumi and Pepoetse. Sansho standings: Shukun-sho: Asapedroryu (for picking 5-0 Nishikifuji and 4-1 Asabenkei) Kanto-sho: Asapedroryu (49 wins) Gino-sho: Pandaazuma (11.89 points; 4 points coming from being the only player to pick 4-1 Kagamio)

    Invitation for Makushita Game Haru 2020

    Standings after Day 6: First of all, thanks for the great player turnout - it's been a long while since we've had 30 players. A special welcome to our new players as well! After 6 days of Makushita action, average scores are pretty low in terms of points and pretty low in terms of variability. In other words, many things could change in the ensuing days. As of now, freshly minted Ozeki Kobashi leads, followed by returning player Oskanohana and Yokozuna Andoreasu. The top players look very much like having a top basho. Only 13 out of 30 players are in KK territory for now, but seven out of eight participating sanyaku players are above that magic line. Sansho standings: Shukun-sho: Asapedroryu (for picking 3-0 Asabenkei). Kanto-sho: Oskanohana I, Asapedroryu (30 wins) Gino-sho: Pandaazuma (7.65 points; mostly for being the only player to pick 3-0 veteran Kagamio)
  10. Hiya, not much talk today. I have uploaded the new Superbanzuke Ranking at the usual place, i.e. http://99998271.com/sb/current.html The intro page also now has fully functioning links to all relevant SB game data. http://99998271.com/sb/ Enjoy!

    Superbanzuke Site - HELP!!!!

    No need to do that. The data have been migrated by the new company, and I can upload data. So, the Superbanzuke is still in business! As for lessons learnt - if someone tech-savvy could explain the different options of accessing a site with WinSCP (SFTP, FTP, SCP, WebDAV; all this with or without encryption), I would be happy to learn. Preferably via PM, as Panda and me have crammed the Forum already with so much ultimately pointless hubbub...

    Superbanzuke Site - HELP!!!!

    1) The site was only temporarily blocked for me. I could access it again. 2) I tried WinSCP again, and this time I accepted the certificate 3) No access with the old password 4) Access with the new password. 5) In other words, the files have been migrated already by the new company! That's why everybody can still read it. 6) I just wanted to tell you all this, when the Panda wrote that he could login with the new password. If I had known this, we would have known that everything has been migrated already! Haha, the total muppets that we are!

    Superbanzuke Site - HELP!!!!

    Houston, we have a problem. As I've told you, I am nearly as clueless as Pandaazuma about all these things. A few minutes ago, I had an idea how to determine if the data have already been migrated or not - I would simply have to login via FTP. If the old password would still be working, the data should be with the old host. If I needed the new password that Pandaazuma has sent me, the data would have been already migrated. Again, my understanding of most of these things is very limited. For instance, when accessing the sites with WinSCP, I have to choose whether I want to access without encryption, with implicit encryption, or explicit encryption. I have no idea what the difference is. I usually choose FTP and explicit encryption, and sometimes the site opens up a window, asking to accept a certain certificate. I do not remember whether I clicked on "yes", or "no", or "abort" when that window popped up in the past. Today, however, the certificate window appeared, I clicked on "Abort" - and ever since then I could not access the site via FTP. Even worse, the entire Superbanzuke site is not available for me now. It reads Blocked because of IPS attack An attack was detected, originating from your system. Please contact the system administrator. This is utter mayhem now for me... But first things first. Can everybody else still access the Superbanzuke site, or do you get the same error message? Does anybody know whether such a block is temporary? Does anybody have an idea what to do next?

    Superbanzuke Site - HELP!!!!

    I certainly will update on the old page as long as it exists. Maybe I‘ll even try to do the setup myself, but this could be a recipe for total mayhem... Edit: I just realized that even if there were somebody who speaks Japanese and knows how to do the setup, that person probably couldn‘t register the page as long as the old one is still alive...

    Superbanzuke Site - HELP!!!!

    Just to add my own two cents of cluelessness... As far as I understand Pandaazuma has found a new host company and already pays for the new site. He also has login data for a Web admin, but a) I have never set up a Website before, and b) everything on the setup menu is in Japanese. Whatever the solution will be (trying to use the site that Pandaazuma apparently leased; or using an entirely new host) - it would be much appreciated if the site will have the same folder structure as before, i.e. http://99998271.com/sb/ There are literally thousands of files which needs to be transferred and most of them require this path in order to be functional... I guess when this path is built, I can transfer the files from my computer to the new site via FTP. This will also take several hours, but that's nothing in comparison to the nightmare that would materialize if the new page isn't named http://99998271.com/sb/

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    As you've probably read somewhere, the Superbanzuke Web pages are offline for the moment. It might be that everything will be settled within the next week. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to upload my data here (moreover, as I have redesigned the page, I will need some testing of how it looks, but that requires Pandaazuma's domain to be online again). That being said, here are some basic pieces of information for Hatsu Basho: According to my stats, Jejima gets the Green Mawashi with 50.33 points, among them a yusho in Oracle and a jun-yusho tie in Paper Oyakata Game. Next places: 2. Pandaazuma 39.13 (also will get the kanto-sho for finishing among the Top 10 in eight different games). 3. Kotononami 37.83 - he will get both the shukun-sho - double digits in two games - and the gino-sho for going strong in daily games (TTT yusho) and pre-basho games (3rd in UDH). 4. Norizo 37.63 5. Susanoo 35.05 6. Terarno 34.13 7. Kishikaisei 33.50 8. Kyoju 32.60 9. Oshirokita 32.50 10. Taka 32.50

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    In order to keep you no longer waiting, I have uploaded the results of the Hatsu 2020 Masters Series and the standings for the 2020 Sumo Gaming World Championships onto the Superbanzuke Web pages. The design of the page is not in the state that I'd like it to be, but I have pretty little time at the moment. Those who hated the new design can now hate this Frankensteinian look with parts from the old and parts from the new design even more! Congrats again to Jejima!

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    The gino-sho is computed as follows: every player gets a score for the daily games (which is 17.83 points in your case, 15 points coming from the TTT yusho), and also a score for the pre-basho games (which was 20.00 points in your case; among them 10 points for UDH). The lower one of these two scores (in your case, 17.83) represents the gino-sho score of a player. The gino-sho goes to the eligible player with the highest gino-sho score. And as nobody else had more than 17.83 points in his/her inferior category, the Prize is awarded to you.

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    The rule that only Top 10 players on the Superbanzuke are eligible for the Green Mawashi was abandoned in 2004. So yes, you are not only eligible, you also won that thing!

    Invitation Makushita Game Hatsu 2020

    Hiya, please consider playing the wonderful and only Makushita Game. http://makushita.sumogames.de A banzuke was sent to Doitsuyama a while ago, but has not been published yet. You can check for Makushita rikishi absences on Saturday before shonichi at http://www.sumo.or.jp/EnHonbashoMain/absence/ Thanks for reading this.

    Invitation Makushita Game Hatsu 2020

    Final Standings: Andrasoyamawaka had it all wrapped up on Day 13, so there was no suspense with regard to the yusho race. Ozeki Flohru and the Sekiwake due of Kobashi and Tenshinhan share the jun-yusho spoils. Overall scoring was very high this time, so in order to arrive at your final W/L record you have to subtract a full point from your WP column and round down in case of half-points. That spells bad news for Komusubi Itachi and Sekiwake chishafuwaku who will end up with 7-8 records. Unfortunately, our new players also started their career with a make-koshi... Sansho: Shukun-sho: Andrasoyamawaka (for picking Kaito, Wakamotoharu, and Jokoryu) Kanto-sho: Andrasoyamawaka (72 wins) Gino-sho: Pepoetse (10.29 points; e.g. 4 points for Narutaki; 2.5 points for Takakento)

    Wow, that was early. Andrasoyamawaka already sealed the yusho on Day 13! Congratulations!!

    Invitation Makushita Game Hatsu 2020

    After 10 days, it looks very much like a start-to-finish yusho by Andrasoyamawaka who has been leading since shonichi and sport a nice 2.5 WP cusion over his closest pursuers, Kobashi and Tenshinhan. The spread of players by rank and standings looks more nightmarish than usual, with many banzuke top dogs flocked near the top of the leaderboard. Expect some small promotions and harsh demotions up there if things continue like that. Sansho leaders: Shukun-sho: Andrasoyamawaka (for picking Wakamotoharu and Ryuko) Kanto-sho: Andrasoyamawaka (57 wins) Gino-sho: kuroimori (8.38 points; almost exclusively based on being the only player to pick 5-0 Kotodaigo)
