Still early days. I needed this Friday to get back in the top 10 on points, for now. Kev enjoys life from the top for now, too.

Three weeks in, neither me nor Wayo have cashed  :-o

Being 1st in points with a 50% over rate though, that's certainly something. Congrats to Kev on the mega win.

Shortened week due to extenuating circumstances...

we managed to get a full week in. that probably won't be true next week, but we'll go one day at a time.

First of potentially 4 straight short weeks...

reposting an overall update with the last two weeks' of playings, which conveniently had one each weekday

(should say week 14, or weeks 13-14, whatever)

4 people within a SC of each other at the top of the cash leaderboard.

I propose next season, we handicap players average scores with how many games they choose to play.  Itís no wonder the top couple of players have only played half of the available games (rarely missing a double Friday) Otherwise itís quite easy to game your average by playing only / mostly on Double Fridays- and just barely enough games played to stay in contention. I canít possibly be the only one who notices this. Otherwise, oneís average is truly not indicative of their CSS ability.   Or simply abolish Double Fridayís , which would accomplish the same task.

^My counter to that is that although you might win the regular season, simply keeping a high score by only playing a little over 40% of the games results in you practically forfeiting any cash bonuses. So yes, in the short term, your score does get inflated, but when doubled Fridays are removed for playoffs and one is forced to play 10 games, you get a 9-10 point bonus going into playoffs... but without consistency, you aren't going to win the title.

I do feel that the line should be raised to 50%. Otherwise, nothing should be changed. The game is barely hanging on as it is, and the handicap for playing less is passing up DSWís and/or cashing, as has already been pointed out. Iíve passed up at least five DSWís this season that I can recall when I chose not to play.

This isnít a new phenomenon, either - PriceFan985 would usually barely stay above the line and win the points title by a mile.

I don't play CSS, but I'll still throw an idea out there: if you must have double points, pick a random day of the week after the week is over to double. In other words, after the last playing of the week (usually Friday, but not necessarily), roll a die or go to random.org or whatever and pick a random number from 1-N, where N is how many games you played that week. (For example, if you played all 5 days, N = 5, and you'd pick a random number from 1-5.) That day's playing is then retroactively doubled. That keeps one doubled playing per week as well as encourages people to play more, because they don't know if that day's playing will be doubled or not.

Talk about the fun has been doubled. :)

But it sounds like an interesting idea.

Looking back at CSS history, only once has the regular season champion gone on to win the Playoffs... and that was way back in Season 1. So while playing so few games- mostly on Fridays- can cause artificial inflation of scores, it really doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things.

Should the Line be bumped up? Perhaps. I don't think any other major changes need to be made though. Playoffs are a whole new game, and since bonuses are also awarded based on cash standings, it evens out in terms of Playoff standing.

I have brought up increasing the line to 50% before and it wasn't received well.

I think shaking things up with double values once every few playings is good, even if it puts inappropriate weight on those playings. it's not supposed to be THAT serious a competition.

the old one-day week after all.

Post by: Wayoshi on March 27, 2020, 12:10:31 PM
My cash lead can't really take a whole week of not cashing. Gulp!

I haven't talked about the points leaders in awhile, but the usual suspects are doing a good job protecting their averages in the top 5.

That yellow, red, yellow yellow yellow week line is pretty insane. I didn't think I'd be the first to a million a couple months ago, but here we are.

Almost our 2nd millionaire now. 14 shows remain on the schedule (we'll see about two weeks from now, a Kids Week Friday that never taped) before the playoffs begin.
Title: Re: CSS16 Leaderboards, Updated Weekly
Post by: Wayoshi on April 17, 2020, 12:25:12 PM
9 more until the playoffs begin, confirmed. No playing next Friday, we'll do double values Thursday

These kids week SCs just had really weird stuff and inconsistent 4-person trips. I slipped a bit with one more week to go until playoff bonuses are decided.
Title: Re: CSS16 Leaderboards, Updated Weekly
Post by: Wayoshi on May 01, 2020, 12:11:44 PM
This is the one that determines the playoff bonus points! I'll put those up later today!

Just 11 playings left this season, unless 9091K gets scheduled sometime soon after June 1, which is looking unlikely.
Title: Re: CSS16 Leaderboards, Updated Weekly
Post by: Wayoshi on May 22, 2020, 12:19:02 PM
I've decided I'm going to end the season next Friday. There are two shows afterwards (the following Monday and a leftover with an unknown airdate) that will be scrimmages. I'll do triple values next Friday to send off CSS into a long sunset... but we'll be back!
