Title: FPG 6/16/17 - GDC Finals
Post by: whammy007 on June 14, 2017, 09:12:31 PM
And then there were four. Kev347. Wayoshi. TPIRFan2000. Flerbert419. These four players have battled through the long regular season full of sandbags and spoilers, followed by the playoff tournament, just to get to this point.

I am aware that we did lose Wednesday's show due to a CBS News Special Report (TM). However, I am hesitant to cancel this week's game with our only backup date being a fill-in-the-blanks/make-good. Therefore, we're going to at least try to play this week, with the understanding that we'll go to next week if anything further happens to the remaining episodes.

Best of luck to all four of you as you play one last game for the Cup, and also to anyone else who's just playing for fun.


SPOILERS: None I've seen. Let's hope it stays that way.

THIS WEEK'S LINEUPS (highlight to view):
#7981K (Monday): Grand/CoG/Money/Balance/Race/Path

What? You can't seriously have a FPG final on an incomplete week?

7974 / 7983 likely are going to air right after 7763. Make the final one of those. You REALLY can't do this.

We have no idea when either of those episodes might be at this time, and I really don't think we should hold up the finals for something that we might not know is coming until it suddenly just appears from out of the ether. For all we know, they could just as easily hold those make-goods till September, by which point we'll completely forget about finishing FPG.

That leaves us with the unpleasant choice of having the finals now or on 7763 next week. I don't like having to lay this one on you guys any more than you like reading it, but given the choice of four-show week versus fill-in-the-blanks, I've chosen to try and see if we can get a game off now where there's a little bit more skill involved than simply looking at an almost-completed frequency chart.

It's highly unusual, I get that, but these have been highly unusual circumstances. If we get any word on reschedules quickly, I will be happy to revisit my decision. But for now, I stand by my choice to make this Friday the final match.

If we are going to do this, we have an unresolved spoiler issue to deal with for today's show.

A game played on #7983K was posted on Twitter and quickly removed, and has not been posted in the proper thread.

It has now, thanks to 2K, and its presence has been noted in the lineups section above.

Not opening a thread for four people, so here's your "I got your stuff" post...

Wayo, Kev, and 2K are in, Flerbie isn't yet.

It all comes down to this...


AND, I also got this from one Flerbert! Quite the nice surprise so we can along with properly come showtime in real time. :)

1. One Away (L) (4)
2. Squeeze Play (L) (5)
