For the following, please correct me if I make a mistake. I'm only human, after all, and there are bound to be people far better at math than myself.
Let's first gather everybody's point values together:ArtVenn
I have no idea why (but it seems to happen everytime I use my girlfriend's mac to edit previous posts of mine), but better than half of my deck analysese as well as my ranking were deleted from my previous post where I rank the submissions. I'm going to chuck it up to I can't work a mac as well as a Dell. I apologize to those of you who didn't get my full thoughts on your deck; I'll fix that post as soon as I find the time to.
Okay, so here are the base point total for each contestant:Spoiler:
Here is the the average score for each contestant:Spoiler:
Each contestant that submitted a ranking should get their average score added to their base point total 3 times. Each contestant that didn't submit a ranking should have their average score added to their base point total a total of 2 times (since they wouldn't have submitted a ranking that would have included themselves).
Here is the revised point total:Spoiler:
This means that the final rankings (and point totals) are as follows:Final Rankings
1) Capitan_Estaban (48) / Minus_Prime (48)
3) SirCurry (41.34)
4) Helphelpe (40)
5) Cathaldus (35.2)
6) Tich (34.68)
7) CadaverousBl00m (34)
8) Elder_Kraken (26.68)
9) ArtVenn (19.2)
Yes, we have a tie for first place! Congratulations to Capitan_Estaban
, our Beastmaster
I find it incredibly interesting that nobody seemed to agree on much of anything when it came to rankings. A lot of people who were ranked really high found themselves at the bottom of a couple rankings, and vis versa. As a result, the numbers actually averaged together really closely.
Now, nobody can see everything about a format by themselves, and sometimes things slip through the cracks that are so quick, powerful, and difficult to disrupt in a format that, by the deck's very nature, necessitate bannings in order to keep the format healthy. This happened not just once, but twice in this contest. It is for these reasons that I award two instances of Format Breaker
, for his decks Affinity Tax
and You Can't Cast That.
Thank you and congratulations to everybody who participated in this contest!
