I just hope that the automation can handle such an instance. @Doitsuyama?

I'm going out on a very solid limb and say: no, it can't.

Gulp. This could be a nightmare!

I am quite happy with 9 lads if the automation can't handle it!

It would at least be the same for everyone. Never having read the rules in great detail, I just assumed that no Yokozuna available meant that we had only 9 rikishi.

Me too, especially if the automation is going to be messed up by extra megashira picks.

I assume the automation will handle situations where there are no Yokozuna or Ozeki on the banzuke, but I'm pretty sure there's no way it can know whether they will all be kyujo, especially as the sekitori kyujo announcement is pretty much contemporaneous with the Bench Sumo deadline.

I doubt it. I rather expect the entry page to crash until Doitsuyama wields his magic.

there still is a theoretical chance they are entering later

Also there's the probability that many players won't log in time to pick the extra maegashira.

The automation definitely can't handle 7 maegashira, it would be a big undertaking for that, starting with the database.

I don't really see why. Inattentive players have had full-kyujo rikishi in their squads before, no? It's not like the Hakuho and Kakuryu buttons are getting disabled on the entry pages. (Hmm, or are they...?)

Are we all agreed then that 'nine is fine'?

... I just really wanted to rhyme.

It is my decision to make.

But,

a) I would much prefer it if there is a way to allow for the extra Maegashira pick.

b) I note above that @Doitsuyama says that it would be a big undertaking to sort out the automation to allow for this possibility. Does that mean that it would be impossible to do for this basho? How about for the November 2020 basho (or January 2021 basho)?

I would like to know the answers to these questions, before donning the orange traffic cone hat (I don't even know where I last put it.)

However, there will be a Bench Sumo basho this basho. :-)

As long as we're agreed that my ability to rhyme is spectacular. 

FWIW -- I'm a data/automation guy by day if ever another pair of hands is needed to help things along.

We were talking about a banzuke without yokozuna, which Bench Sumo had never experienced before. Asanoyama should better hurry with his promotion!

My bad, I missed the shift in topic from the original issue for the current basho.

nokozuna and keep 6 maegashira will bring bench to a different level... 

imho... a much more interesting one.

more decisions on the bench very likely

will 90% of players keep asanoyama on the 4-pts slot for at least 13 days ?

i doubt it.

let's gooo bashooooow

For this basho, I guess we are all going to have to battle with 9 rikishi.

But this is not a change in the official rules. When the automation can handle it, the game will use the official rules of allowing an extra Maegashira pick, for future bashos.

Not the actual results of bouts, but I have a feeling that the Fighting Spirit prizes and the Technique Prizes will be harder than usual.

I don't think so. With M1e Terunofuji there is an additional weapon for big scores. And I'm really curious whether we will see an all Ozeki line-up in points... (Asanoyama/Takakeisho + 4 former Ozeki).

I'm looking forward to using this next time, which based on past history will be 2057! (Although it certainly has to be rather freakish this hasn't happened in 37 years, and I can easily imagine having only one yokozuna in the near future and not being as fortunate as the two previous times we've only had one.)

Hi everyone!

Here are the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2020 after the September 2020 basho.  This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from November 2019 to September 2020.

It reads like this.....

Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after July 2020) - Rank on the September 2020 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 5 bashos - (points change from after September 2020 - basically the points gained for September 2020 minus the points gained in September 2019).

Andoreasu and fujiyama have both moved into the top ten. 

The biggest move upwards is the 15 places of chishafuwaku.

Over-and-out-until-November!

Hi all,

Here is the new bench banzuke for November 2020. It was put together by Jejima, Kaiomitsuki and Flohru, with useful input from Asashosakari and Kintamayama. Ekigozan was also included in all correspondence. 

For players on an Ozeki run, a kosho will cut that short in normal circumstances. This means that Andoreasu will need to play in November to have a chance of cashing in on his amazing 12-3 record either then (with a 10-5 or better, as he had an 8-7 prior to the 12-3) or again in January, should he KK in November without double digits. This has been the rule for Bench Sumo since the game began in 1999, when I wrote it based on how the kosho rule (then in existence for Ozumo) would treat an Ozeki run. (Other sumo games treat kosho and ozeki promotion differently.)

If anyone has any query about the rules, (which can be seen here --> <http://takanorappa.com/BenchRules/BasicRules.htm>)please contact me directly. 

As well as welcoming Andoreasu to the Sekiwake ranks, there are a number of very lucky promotions to Makunouchi.

With banzuke-gai rikishi, and 0-0-15 rikishi falling from Juryo, there is more banzuke luck than usual this basho.

With sadness, I need to announce that this will be the last banzuke that Kaiomitsuki will be an active banzuke maker. He had previously hung up his mawashi, and now he is hanging up his calligraphy brush too. Kaiomitsuki has been invited to join Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari as a banzuke-maker emeritus. Someone who we turn to for wisdom and guidance when needed.

 

I will be inviting a Bench Sumo player to take his place before the next basho begins.
