    JWS Hatsu 2020

    Wakatake: Thanks for your response and your efforts; However, I am now positive that this was actually completely my mistake (I never even realized there is a registration page where I am suppose to indicate whether I plan to enter my picks daily or not - and, yes, I should have checked the results sooner), so I am 100 % fine with having Hoshoryu counted as my picked from day 2 onwards. Starting next basho I am going to make things easier by simply playing daily - the game deserved it!

    JWS Hatsu 2020

    @ Wakatake: I've selected Hoshoryu as my day 1 pick, but Terunofuji as my 1st default pick, assuming that Terunofuji would kick in from day 2 onwards if I send no further pick. I only now realize that was not the case. The rules indicate that you are keeping the rikishi you pick on any given day unless you send a new pick, so that is fine. However, the Surveymonkey states "Please Select Your JWS Pick for Day X" which suggests that it is only for this day. Maybe it would be better to just write "Please Select Your JWS Pick", not indicating a day, to avoid such misunderstandings? Thanks for providing the game!

    Metasumo 2020

    Or else, they think that you could be encouraged to try a comeback! No? :)
  4. Good idea, there was a similar long-term game with fantasy heyas in the past (forget the name), which unfortunately ceased to exist after a while. K-M2 Mitakeumi M3-M6 Meisei M7-M11 Onosho M12+ Kiribayama J Kotonowaka Ms Roga Sd and below Hokutenkai

    Class Dismissed Kyushu 2019

    Thanks, Wakatake! A difficult basho to predict and a rather lucky yusho. Anyway, the main thing is to get the number of participants up again!!

    Class Dismissed Kyushu 2019

    There is a mistake in the survey monkey: M15e should be Daishomaru, not Chiyotairyu.

    That really would be a shame as FS is one of the few games that enjoyed a continuous high number of players in recent years... Thanks for trying to keep it alive and providing us with updates!

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Well, both of them only needed only 9/10 basho to achieve their juryo promotion, but Hoshoryu sure had bigger trouble in Makushita (30-19 record, only one 6-1 in lower Makushita), compared to Takahanda (17-4, two Makushita yusho). And then the biggest difference is Hoshoryu entering at the rather mature age of 18 (in fact close to 19), while Takahanada was only 15. You could find dozens of comparable fast rises to Juryo (even if you only want to look at very very recent examples), some of them leading to greatness, others to nothing. Too early to tell.
