  1. I think Rocks' argument was that everything concerning TUG is connected to Sumoforum. As previously mentioned, however, this holds true for DTS as well. Personally I agree that new Super Banzuke games should "force" their way in, in the sense that they need to attract lots of players (= more than 42) as was the case with TTT back then. Otherwise there could be discussions about a number of games and potentially lots of extra work for Randomitsuki which none of us can really want. As for TUG: I believe that some sort of automation would indeed be necessary to gain more players. That said, I do enjoy playing the game despite it not being a part of the SB. :)

    Metasumo 2018

    Thanks, chishafuwaku! In a way this is the most prestigious sumo gaming yusho of all, so I am more than happy to win it for a second time. I was pretty confident with my team and I am actually surprised that only two of them managed to end up as group leader in the end (though all of them came pretty close). Thank you Pandaazuma, Norizo, ScreechingOwl, chishafuwaku (again), Tenshinhan, Metzinowaka, Kintamayama and McBugger!

    Ichinojo, 2018 edition!

    That seems to be a pretty harsh judgement considering that 2018 was easily Ichinojo's best year with regard to both consistency and rank. Full respect to everyone predicting 4 or 5 KK by a sanyaku-ranked Ichinojo with this 2017 track record Jan: M13W 11-4 Mar: M7e 6-9 May: M9e 8-7 Jul: M6E 7-8 Sep: M6e 8-7 Nov: M4W 10-5

    Bench Sumo news

    You "lost" 4 places (instead of the 2 you should have lost in an ideal world). Hironoumi (ms11E, 8-7) 10 wolfgangho (ms8W, 7-8) Others such as Basoyama had worse banzuke luck: Basoyama (ms1W, 7-8) 4 Kofujinokami (ms6E, 8-7)

    Bench Sumo news

    You may want to look at basically all the players ranked above you to see that they are suffering even worse banzuke luck than you do. Indeed, unfortunately there is lots of bad banzuke in Makushita this time, but the division was quite easy to arrange as there were basically no alternatives regarding the ranking of the players. Jejima already explained the process in making the bench banzuke and I can only confirm (though I doubt that this is really necessary) that none of us favours his "friends" - indeed after many years of bench banzuke making I am not even looking at the names of the players anymore, only at their ranks/records...

    Juryo Game

    Thanks Nantonoyama! I wanted to ask this for quite a while (and possibly it has already been asked, sorry about that): Is there any way to access old banzuke/records in Juryo Game?

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2018

    According to my stats, it is jun-yusho No. 8 for me, but my first since Hatsu 2015, so I will gladly settle with it. Congratulations Tenshinhan and thank you, Itachi, for all your hard work!!

    Pick The Yusho Winners Kyushu 2018

    Thanks Itachi! After Day 12 I was kind of hoping to have picked all 6 yusho winners (did anyone ever manage that?), but Yago being Yago and Tomokaze becoming dominant prevented that even before Takayasu stumbled on the verge of his first yusho.

    Class Dismissed Kyushu 2018

    And again, thank you Wakatake! I really like this game and hope it will attract more players in the future!

    JWS Kyushu 2018

    Thanks, Wakatake, and, of course, thanks Mitoryu: I was pretty sure that sticking with one rikishi is the best (and easiest) way to win this game. :)
  11. Hokutofuji is ranked above Tochiozan and the points are not in accordance with their marginal difference in rank anyway
  12. Maybe he means this one? 20 -- Hokutofuji (vs. Tochiozan)

    Norizo Cup 2018.11

    Actually it took me only about 3-5 minutes longer than usual to make my entry though my Japanese is as non-existent as yours. I was sceptical at first, but thanks to all the hard work of Susanoo and Pandaazuma in this thread and with some common sense (counting the rikishi in the most active, least active section, just as chishafuwaku indicated above) it was pretty easy. The only extra time spent was while double-checking my picks by simply copy&pasting the kanji of those selected into Google. All in all, that was an interesting experience. :)
