Excellent. I'll try to do my picks tomorrow evening, but if I forget, phantom, you have my permission to phone me and shout a lot.

I'm actually decently happy with my squad, at least enough to give them another round as they are. Switching captaincy to Curufin is tempting, and not doing so will probably put me down the list a little, but I'd rather stay consistent than chase after previous victories. After all, Smaug is a flipping dragon. Also, this.

You know, I think I'm just going to go ahead and give my team one more shot. Leave it as is for round two.

I came back, but not back enough to figure out what's going on (or I'm just too busy defending one epic hero over at the Books forum ). Can someone tell me where we are right now and what/if I need to do something to my team in the near future?

You have unlimited trades this round, but this is the last time that happens. Next round you're only allowed seven trades, so you'd better not have more than seven of your players get eliminated. (A guide to which teams risk elimination can be found here.)

You are now allowed five stars on your squad. Best of luck.

I'm probably gonna change my mind on a midfield slot and a defender or two, but, then again, I might not.

Well, this was definitely better than first round, but still nothing so great. But I am being conservative. Let's see about these.

--DF Radagast
--MF Saruman
--FW Khamul

++DF Balrog#5
++MF Glorfindel

Okay... going quite fine but Mr. Nilp & co are getting a bit too far ahead. So some drastic measures - and coming back towards my team-roots then.

I'm changing the whole "downstairs" of my team and basically going even more for my first year's "Beauties and the Beasts" -team spirits allowing only females and beasts / creatures of some sort into my team... there will be still two exceptions with that principle but I will - or then not - try to get to deal with them later...


So, the changes:

-- GK *Shastawolf (T-I-G)
++ GK Amroth (Anduin)


-- DF Thorondor (FC Valinor)
-- DF Amras (Tirion)
-- DF Alatar (Barad-Dûr)
-- DF *Tilion (Real Valinor)
++ DF Rochallor (AC Beleriand)
++ DF BoroWolf (T-I-G)
++ DF *Ulmo (The Sea)
++ DF *Morgoth (Angband)


-- MF NerWight (T-I-G)
++ MF NogWight (Eriador)


-- FW Thranduil (Wilderland)
++ *Arien (Valimar)


Which results in the following team for round three.


Noggportunistics


GK - Amroth (Anduin)

DF - Rochallor (AC Beleriand)
DF - BoroWolf (T-I-G)
DF - *Ulmo (The Sea)
DF - *Morgoth (Angband)

MF - NogWight (Eriador)
MF - Hador (Hithlum)
MF - *Yavanna (FC Valinor)

FW - Aredhel (Tirion)
FW - *Arien ( Valimar) C
FW - *Miriel (Real Valinor)




EDIT: A change: I'll put all on Arien this round... thence the captaincy (she made me the champion last season - now it's time to see if she can deliver this time as well) moves from Miriel to her.

Not as drastic as a shake up but I've always wondered how this ever-revolving door of "what no-star FWs could have a great game?" guesses will pan out.

Games will likely start going up the 3rd or the 4th, so get your trades done, or at least let us know you intend to do trades so we know to hold off for you.

Per her PM instructions this is Galadriel's team (unless of course she gets back in time and chooses to adjust it).

After that abysmal round, it's time for some changes.

Hopefully that maths out correctly. I won't be checking the Downs again today, so if anything's wrong, Phantom, call me. I had to do it pretty quickly, and I put a lot of stake in a few teams, so I hope I don't get shafted during this round of play. :/

The first games of Round 3 will be up within 12 hours and the rest will follow. Move fast if you want to get any trades in.

I put quite a stake in TIG, so it better win. I pretty much told TP in the back-up instructions for my absence to pick a player from TIG if anything. But it looks like this team has prospects.

Seems I missed this round– I’ve been without internet for a few days, and before that the site wouldn’t let me post. Ah well.

Ah, yes, tech difficulties. We love those!

You can make a few trades that don't involve players that have played already if you wish, Nerwen.

(Groups A & C have played thus far)

Ah, but don’t forget about those group predictions you all made. Before we award the points, there are a few things worth pointing out in the predictions.
Everyone called Real Valinor and Eriador advancing.
Only one person didn't call TIG advancing.
Only two people didn't call Valimar, Armenelos, AC Beleriand, Barad-Dur, or FC Valinor.
Only Inzil, Boro, and Wilwa had Gondolin advancing.
Only Morm, Boro, and Wilwa had Misty Mts advancing.
Only Boro and Morm got Group E correct.
Only Legate and Nog got Group H correct.
Only Legate got Group F correct.
Legate had the most group-winners correct, with 7 of 8.
Nog got the most total points.

27 pts- Nog
25 pts- Legate & Wilwa
21 pts- Nilp & Shasta
20 pts- Gwath
19 pts- Galadriel
18 pts- Nerwen & Morm & Boro
16 pts- Sally
4 pts- Inzil

Which means the points standings are…

Total Point Standings Before Playoffs
Atashi no Negai- 181
We Didn’t Start the Fire- 164
Noggportunistics- 164
Lynch Mob- 155
Mooncrazed Remixed- 151
Wilwa’s Winners- 138
Cupkicks- 135
Unnamed Horror- 132
The Uncloakables- 127
Elven Pillars of Wisdom- 127
Salt and Smoke- 127
FC Monkey Stink- 126

Our biggest positive movers this round—Wilwa leaped up four spots, and Nog moved up two spots. And if everything was added correctly, it seems there is a huge pile-up at the back. And to see how close it is, if any of them had 12 more points they’d be in the top half of the standings instead of in the rear.

And speaking of being close, it seems Nilp is the only one not interested in it. He has grown his lead to 17 points. But of course that’s not insurmountable by any means…

You are allowed six stars.

You are allowed seven trades. (It doesn't matter how many times you swap out players- what matters is that the team you end up with must have FOUR players that are on your squad currently.)

You can also gain bonus points for correctly predicting the winner in each playoff match (one point per game). The match-ups are...

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

Anduin vs Armenelos

(In case you wondered, winner of the top match (Arnor-Valimar) faces winner of second match (Angband-AC) and so on down the line for the next round.)

Me too!

I thought in the beginning I would not sign him in to my team but then he started performing really well (second best in phantasy-points after Elrond in team Eriador) and suddenly it seemed like an option as a non-starred midfielder... and what did I earn from him? Zero points.


Btw. there will be some crazily hard to predict games on the next round. Fun!

Sorry I missed the last round. Caught me in the middle of moving. Hopefully I didn't do too badly.

In their stead I'll be hiring the following players.

GK - Tar Atanamir (Armenelos)

DF - Vana (Valimar)
DF - Aragorn (Eriador)
DF - * Tilion (Real Valinor)

MF - Argon (FC Valinor)

FW - ** Fëanor (AC Beleriand)



Which will result in the following team:


Noggportunistics

GK – Tar Atanamir (Armenelos)

DF – Vana (Valimar)
DF – Borowolf (TIG)
DF – Aragorn (Eriador)
DF – *Tilion (Real Valinor)

MF – Argon (FC Valinor)
MF – Hador (Hithlum)
MF – *Yavanna (FC Valinor)

FW - ** Fëanor (AC Beleriand)
FW – *Arien (Valimar) C
FW – *Miriel (Real Valinor)




~*~

My bets for the winners of the first play-off round will be (winners bolded):


Valimar beats Arnor.

AC Beleriand has the better off Angband in a real fight.

Real Valinor proves tougher than Tirion in the end.

FC Valinor gives Misty Mountains no chance.

Eriador denies Barad-Dûr and wears them down.

From a real thriller against Nargothrond Hithlum emerges triumphant.

T-I-G has to give their best to beat Gondolin - and they deliver.

Anduin has not what it takes to beat Armenelos and loses.



PS. To ever hope catching Nilp one must play differently - alea iacta est!

TOTAL = 43
Okay, this certainly does not add up, one way or the other. I am really really bad at maths, so I am not even trying to count how many points should I get per each person, but the result does not add up, and also, shouldn't I get double points for Arien? Same goes for Nog, I think, who copied my move and has her as her captain as well (Not that I want to continue feeding him points, but...)

In any case, this round in total looks MUCH better than the previous ones! I'm on the rise, watch out! (Hope it continues that way...)

Quote:
Only Legate and Nog got Group H correct.
Only Legate got Group F correct.
Legate had the most group-winners correct, with 7 of 8.
And, yay! Pity about the one guess, but who would have thought Angband...

Updates to team and predictions coming soon...
