As apparently every year, I somehow dropped out of the competition mid-year. At one stage there were simply to many fixtures to keep up.
What about changing the competition to quarterly or something like that. Could be easier to reentry, when you missed some games (read: a lot :D ).
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

I only upload the games so not entirely sure how/if this would work with regards to the prize! I know other users fancied working the competition another way, but this is the most straight forward way to run it I think with the algorithms available to us

I understand this concern, but think the main competition must stay unchanged. For those who cannot také part in the competition during the whole year, they have good chances in parallel competitions we have meantimes created like Bonus Point Plate (5s * 3s) managed by toulousain or Monthly competitions I manage myself. Everyone who enter during the year is welcome in these parallel competions and has the same starting position like the others.

One known game left, if we don't include a potential north African tournament as there has been in previous years. if Loohr gets the point, victory is theirs! Their 3 pointer from Ireland USA could prove decisive!!

1. dwpeate 256
2. Loohr 256

Assuming there are no surprise games this month, we have a draw at the top. iul, any tie break criteria? Most amount of games with the right winner etc?

Or just an out and out draw/prize split?

Looks like the last Monthly Winner of this year - for December 2018 is again m.map!

Congratulations again!


Monthly December 2018 Ranking:

3 m.map
1 dwpeate
1 sjbret
1 vis maior

List of 2018 Montly Winners:
February - sjbret
March - toulousain
April - RugInt
May - dwpeate
June - Loohr
July - sjbret
August - dwpeate
September - dwpeate and Loohr
October - vis maior
November - m.map
December - m.map

Just a message for RugbyLiebe: (and for any simlar proposals for changing the rules of the competition)
If you tip a victory of Baabaas by 3 points in the only match of december, you would be a co-winner of the month with m.map!
If you tip 38:35, you will be an absolute winner of the December Monthly Competition with only one tip!
So easy, is not it?...

Is not this reason enough to start in the competition any time during the year and still have chance to win?....

The tie breakers are on the "rules" page...

The number of 5 pointers (exact scores predicted);
The number of 3 pointers (correct margins predicted);
The number of victories predicted;

dwpeate: 0

The second tie breaker is the number of 3 pointers
Loohr: 11
Spoiler:
Scotland 24 - 18 France on feb 11th
South Africa 19 - 21 Wales on June 02
Tonga 21 - 22 Georgia on June 09
Germany 26 - 23 Portugal on June 18
Samoa 60 - 9 Germany on June 30
Kenya 29 - 20 Zimbabwe on June 30
South Africa 32 - 19 Argentina on Aug 18
Peru 33 - 11 Costa Rica on Oct 3
Malta 44 - 10 Bosnia and Herzegovina on Oct 27
Crawshays RFC 15 - 26 Hong Kong on Nov 02

dwpeate: 6
Spoiler:

Georgia A 16 - 18 Brazil on Aug 03
Crawshays RFC 18 - 29 Hong Kong on Nov 03

...so, unless I massively miscounted it looks like Loohr is the tipping champion. Are we sure there are no more internationals this year though?

I heard that a certain Mr.Dwpeate from Wales is trying to organize one international between San Marino and Man Island, or between Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, or between whoever wants as long as there will be an other damned test match! : )

Haha, if only! I think I have Storm Carrol to blame for this, as he took and missed the conversion for the Netherlands last try against Switzerland which cost me 2 extra points :p

Congratulations Loohr. Well done. I always enjoy the tipping.
Thanks to all who work behind the scenes to work this comp and congratulations to those who tipped through the year. The real stayers. :thumbup:
Looking forwards to 2019 comp.

PS-I was actually in the lead earlier in the year but I guess my new horse is not a stayer :D

Searching for a new horse over xmas. 8-)
