As Randomitsuki hinted at in his MCP report yesterday, shimodahito wrote history for being the first player to have the only perfect score on consecutive days. Congrats!

I'm not sure what to say from my makushita rank, but humbled by the finding of our great Randomitsuki....  on the other hand, a very battered bench sumo team and still well below the AXIS OF MEDIOCRITY ...

Hi everyone!
 
I am very proud to announce that we will have a 'new' Ozeki for March 2019.
 
Norizo's recent record has been as follows:-
 
Sep '18 --  M2E (10-5)
Nov '18 -- K1E (9-6)
Jan '19 -- S1E (11-4)
 
This means the bench sumo guidelines of 30+ wins over three bashos, with the last two (ideally) being ranked at sanyaku, and the very last basho ranked at Sekiwake.
 
It will be Norizo's third stint at the Ozeki rank (matching Flohru and Randomitsuki in this feat).
 
He was first an Ozeki for 8 bashos, beginning November 2011.  He was Ozeki again for 4 bashos, beginning May 2013.  However, his record as an Ozeki (on both occasions) was below .500.  We wish him better success with his third go at this rank.
 
We look forward to hearing from Norizo on the occasion of his re-promotion.

It’s bench stats update time!  I’ve updated all my stats pages (60 of them) with the results of the Hatsu basho.  

As is usual, you can find the stats at my site by selecting the “Misc. Bench Stats” in the menu.  

The only stat that I left untouched (I think) was the BSer Rank Stats, as that is really needs the new banzuke to show any change. 

note: as you can guess the ranks listed are the Hatsu ranks.  Once the Bench banzuke is published, I will update. 

Also, I’m tinkering with the BSer Technique stat to do a little swap/hide of the basho detail & to add average daily tech pts (i.e., what you would expect to score each day).  If anyone has a better way to display the data on that page, please let me know

Hi everyone!

Here are the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2019 after the January 2019 basho.  This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from March 2018 to January 2019.

It reads like this.....

Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after November 2019) - Rank on the January 2019 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points gain from after January 2019, basically January 2019 minus January 2018).

Bill is the new leader, as he leaps upwards seven places!  There are plenty of players on his tail, so the top 10 could have a big shake-up after the March basho.  pandaazuma and Terarno are the two new members of the 'sanyaku level'.

Over-and-out!

Hi all,
 
Here is the new Bench banzuke for March 2019.  This one was quite difficult - and there is (alas) some banzuke bad luck - particularly around the divisional breaks.
 
Some players have ended up with good banzuke luck - so that is nice (for them).
 
Without further ado....

I appear to have mislaid my Yahoo Bench mailing list login data (probably when I moved house last summer) so I thought I'd post here instead. Thanks to @Takanorappa for all the fantastic stats work. I noticed that you asked in your ICF thread about Mukade Beya - yes, that is our name now, although you can also call us the Centipedes. ;)

Good also to see said Centipedes kicking arse basho after basho. Hope we can make the all-time best despite being very late to the party. I believe Doitsugo have won it the most times?

One more thing. @Unkonoyama is a Sumo Game Centipede, but if he consents, we would like him to join Mukade Ichimon in Bench too. If he says it's OK, could you please update the ichimon members page? I am assuming here that he is currently unaffiliated, of course. Unko...is that OK?

Thanks again.

Hi all!
 
Here are the possible 'milestones' for Bench Sumo players for the March basho. 
 
A big shout-out to Takanorappa and his Bench Sumo stat page that made this email possible.
 
All the good stuff can be found here -->  <http://www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm>
 
There are now five parts (including a new fifth)....
 
1. The players at a new career high rank.
 
2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in July.
 
3. Players who have a chance (even if very remote) of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in March.  
 
4. The current #20 leaderboard for the *all-time* total number of wins.
 
5. (NEW) The current #20 leaderboard for the highest win percentage for *active* players.
 
Enjoy!

Man, I'm crushing at this game and I've only played one basho. Maybe I should go intai before it all goes in the crapper.  (Laughing...)

I was considering having a minimum number of bashos to qualify for this stat, but then thought that it is more fun without - and it will bring to attention above average (or lucky) new players. :-)

Hi everyone!
 
The entry form is up - so get you r entries in, by going to:-
 
<http://benchsumo.sumogames.de/Menu.aspx>
 
Remember to do so before the deadline of next Friday, 2 pm JAPAN time (much earlier in most time zones).
 
Also, this is the second call for help with the day-to-day gyojiing.  Please let me know if you can help out. What days you are available. How many days that you would like. And whether you have any preference for divisions.

Hi, how do I register to play this?

You've done the most important first step in the process, which is to post on this forum indicating you are a new player that wants to play.  Hopefully @Doitsuyama will take notice and add you in time for you to register.

Good news for @Jaakunakunshu (and other new players wishing to join Bench Sumo) is that @Jakusotsu now has a way to add new players to Bench Sumo.

Remember (once you've been added to the system) that the entry deadline is this Friday 6 pm JAPAN time (which is earlier than most time zones).

We are coming up to our 20th anniversary of Bench Sumo - so it would be nice to have some new faces to help celebrate, now that it is easier to become a new player.

All the rules can be found here, from an archived site (so slightly out of date in a very few places)....

Me :) I don't know if I already got added but everything is still greyed out when I look on the menu

Should work now.

For being able to start playing Bench Sumo, you first need a profile at sumogames.de (which also applies for ChainGang, ISP, Roto Sumo, and Sekitori Toto), and then let us know here.

(Unfortunately, for Bench Sumo there's no automated procedure to link your account with the game - Doitsuyama or me need to do that manually.)

Yay! Let's get Jonidan back. I won a yusho in that fabled division once, I think.

Let's aim even lower - a Jonokuchi yusho would be nice!

I think 700 wins is a realistic goal this time even if it is slightly misleading having been around  since 2003 and only missing one basho(Still hurts and I don't mean the accident that put me in hospital)

Will I be the slowest to reach 700 wins? So far?
