JWS Nagoya 2022

Recommended Posts

Welcome to JWS (Juryo Win Streak) Nagoya 2022! Last basho we had an exciting game that came down to a day 15 comeback, with player Tameiki earning a record tying 4th yusho in the game. Player Benihana also turned out good consistent performances over the last three basho and was rewarded with being the 5th player promoted to our games' ozeki rank! Hoping we can see many players during this summer frenzy.

The goal of the game is to pick one juryo rikishi that you think will win for the day and try to get the longest streak possible.

 

I am actually in the middle of revamping the rules to make it less confusing and to clear the issue regarding default picks. These new rules should be posted within the next day or so. In the meantime, I invite all to take the survey below to let me know your plans for competing in the game for Nagoya 2022. I can't wait to see you all soon for this always exciting game!

New/Revamped Rules:

1. Pick one Juryo rikishi from the 28 ranked on the banzuke that you think will win for the day
2. A win will add to your streak, a loss will stop the streak completely
3. All Juryo rikishi are eligible for daily picks, even those in makuuchi or makushita crossover matches. However, you cannot pick their makuuchi or makushita opponents
4. You can play by submitting picks via the Survey Monkey link, posting here in this thread, by PM, or by email

8. Please designate 1st, 2nd, and 3rd default picks for the basho
   a. Your default pick is used if you do not submit a daily pick, or if your daily pick is involved in a kyujo match
   b. Your 1st default will be substituted with your 2nd default if they go kyujo, and 3rd default if the 1st and 2nd are both involved in kyujo matches
   c. If all four picks (one daily, three defaults) are involved in a kyujo match, you will automatically have a loss for the day
   d. Default picks can be changed at any time
9. Anyone is allowed to play, whether you are a forum member or not. Participation includes any method via rule 4

10. The player with the longest streak in the game for the basho will be declared the yusho winner
11. In the case of a tie for longest streak of the basho, a tiebreaker will will be used to determine the winner

5. Picking rikishi with losing records to win

Kekka scoring:

Your kekka record/scoring is determined on a curve factor. The longest streaks of all players are added at the end of the basho and the total sum of the streaks is then divided by the number of players in the game to get the average streak up to the second decimal. The score is then rounded up to the next whole number to determine the KK line. 

Day 1 link will be posted after the torikumi has been announced.

Looking forward to playing with everyone this basho!

One win short of a perfect day, and the host of the game finally joins the fun after missing the first two days. Everybody on pace to go a long way if the Ryuden train continues without derailment

The Ryuden train derails, as well as some other streaks, meaning we are now entering the first suspenseful stage of the game! Now sole leader Tameiki jumped the train at the right time, what strategic pick will he make next?
