I did a recount of your points (also checking the initial points given) and it is hard to end up with any other result but the 43 points given (including Aria's points doubled).

Goalkeeper = 6 points
Defence = 2+2+2-1 = 5 points
Midfield = 3+0+5 = 8 points
Forwards = 4+4+(2x8) = 8+16 = 24 points

6+5+8+24 = 43


It's nice to see the game becoming tighter along with the matches... some of the last games will be just killers to predict and getting predictions wrong means having redundant players in one's team not picking you points, while correct picks might earn you hugely - so I'd say everything's open...

Oh right. Thanks. As I have said, I suck at maths. Somehow I did not realise that tp did not write the double in the list of numbers, but still counted it that way. Now it adds up. Good.

You can have three players from a team, but once the semifinals arrive you can have four.

You are allowed four trades before the quarters, four trades before the semis, then three trades ahead of the finals.

If your captain is eliminated and you don't assign a new one, the lowest active player on your roster becomes your default captain. If you miss making both trades and predictions in a round you are allowed an extra trade the following round.

This is purely a hypothetical question, and I don't plan on pulling this stunt anytime soon (because, for one thing, I don't think the extra trade can offset the lack of prediction points), but . . . can you miss the trade deadline on purpose and get that extra trade?

I suppose if someone believes one extra trade is worth zero activity the previous round they can try it. But like I said, they're only allowed the extra trade if they make no trades and make no predictions the previous round, so they'd automatically be giving up a chance at 8 points in predictions, so to break even they'd have to be confident they would make those points up with their extra trade (plus any points they might lose not being able to switch their captaincy or swapping out an optimal player etc.).

Changing the recipe a bit. My last batch was....

GK *ShastaWolf (TIG)
DF *Fingolfin (ACBel)
DF Aragorn (Eriador)
DF BoroWolf (TIG)
DF *Morgoth (Angband)
MF NogWight (Eriador)
MF *Glorfindel (Eriador)
MF NerWight (TIG)
FW Finrod (Narg)
FW Aredhel (Tirion)
FW *Curufin (FCVal)

Which changes to....

GK *ShastaWolf (TiG)
DF *Fingolfin (AC Bel)
DF Aragorn (Eriador)
DF BoroWolf (TiG)
DF Balrog #5 (Hithlum)
MF Tar-Míriel (Armenelos)
MF *Glorfindel (Eriador)
MF NerWight (TiG)
FW Finrod (Nargothrond)
FW **Feanor (AC Bel)
FW *Curufin (FC Val) (C)



And now prediction time, with winners in bold. Hedging my bets just a bit....

Arnor vs Valimar
Angband vs AC Beleriand
Tirion vs Real Valinor
Misty Mts vs FC Valinor
Barad-Dur vs Eriador
Hithlum vs Nargothrond
Gondolin vs Tol-In-Gaurhoth

Sorry all, I've had some computer/posting issues and now my desktop has died one me and that held basically all of my Arda Cup stuff. I've got my laptop but it's still going to take me several hours since I also have some unexpected duties...here I thought I could enjoy the first college football Saturday and finish my matches.

Anyway, I'm posting the TIG-Gondolin score to get it up for you and will fill in the story sometime later today. Thanks for waiting patiently.

Wow- everyone was quite tightly bunched that round! And now onto the standings-- Nilp is still in the lead, but his nearest competitors all inched closer that round, including Nog who has hopped Boro for 2nd. Meanwhile in the second wave Galadriel has risen to the front and Shasta finds himself between the two groups. We shall see if anyone can bridge the gap...

We've hit a bit of a delay here as our writers are dealing with a host of complications- surgery, internet outage, moving, new work, etc. We will be moving again as soon as possible.

Several folks pushed their totals north of 200 points, while Nilp managed to edge ahead of a couple of his rivals, and Gwath hopped Boro in his quest to catch the leader. But the big mover was Shasta, who is now tied for second place.

You are allowed eight stars.

You are allowed three trades.

You can feature four players from a team instead of three.

You can gain bonus points (3 per match) for correct predictions in the semifinals, which are as follows...

AC Beleriand vs FC Valinor
Hithlum vs Tol In Gaurhoth

(Note: If Morm or Wilwa show they are allowed an extra trade this round.)

Traditionally, semifinals is where I come a cropper, turning from contender to Arsenal. So if any of you want to win this, all you have to do is make sure you don't do worse than I.

Is it telling that over 50% of my points come from betting on Balrog#4 and Balrog#5? Well, if only I had such good eye for all folks, not just the black horses... I mean... whatever.

Need to do a major overhaul. Guess I need to figure out how to make it as major as possible with only three trades...

--GK Tar-Atanamir
--MF Ingwë
--FW Arien

++GK *Huan (FC Val)
++MF *Beleg (Hithlum)
++FW *InzilWolf (TIG)

Therefore, we have:

SALT AND SMOKE (AND CANINES)
GK *Huan (FC Val)
DF *Tilion (Real Val)
DF Balrog#4 (AC Bel)
DF Balrog#5 (Hithlum)
DF Estë (Valimar)
MF Tar-Míriel (Armenelos)
MF *Beleg (Hithlum)
MF *Glorfindel (Eriador)
FW *Curufin (FC Val)
FW **Fëanor (AC Bel) -> C
FW *InzilWolf (TIG)

Predictions:
Hithlum over TIG
FC Val over AC Bel

Thumbs up

Nice to see the 'Downs working again... and the points, the points... d'uh!

But after Nilp there are four players competing for the second place within 8 points... that's one goal for a captain others don't have or a goal and assist for a midfielder. That's close!

Fun.

Oh, Nog, you're not fooling anyone. You were also sixteen points behind the leader coming into the semifinals last time around. And we all know what happened.

(I won't even have the benefit of 10 extra points this time, cos Boro [169] and Shasta's [161] $100 million lead are too big for me [147] to catch up.)

(Oh, Gwath [148] and Nog [147] are also in the top five. These scores are unofficial, though.)

Off goes:
DF *Tilion (RealV)
FW *Arien (Valimar)
FW *Miriel (RealV)

Bringing in Eönwe, Thuringwethil and Túrin the team will be:


Noggportunistics

GK Huor (Hithlum)

DF BoroWolf (T-i-G)
DF Aragorn (Eriador) - redundant
DF *Fingolfin (AC Beleriand)
DF *Eönwe (FC Valinor)

MF Argon (FC Valinor)
MF Hador (Hithlum)
MF *PhantomWolf (T-i-G)

FW **Feanor (AC Beleriand)
FW Thuringwethil (T-i-G) C
FW **Túrin (Hithlum)


And the predictions are as follows:

AC Beleriand wins FC Valinor.
Hithlum wins Tol In Gaurhoth on penalties.



With Nilp having a secure lead and picking up all the "obvious" players to score points I need to gamble with something - which is trusting on Thuringwethil... all or nothing it is then.
