It Returns... The Winter Game rises from the ashes Gasping for Air. Preseason Deadline: October 8th

I see the threads auto lock now and display what day and local time they will do so. That is awesome!   
 

In the era of MTC tracking I wonder if it would be worth bringing the deadline up a day — we’re going to have near-actuals for previews most weeks and it may homogenize the weekly responses a bit. This is my first time playing of course so I’m not sure how much this sort of thing has already been discussed or experimented with.

 

Oh, Yes I have got the time zones very late this week. 

 

From next week, the thread will lock at 4pm Korean time, so 5 hours earlier than this week. That will likely be the permanent lock time going forward.

Okay, 

I have been dead since Friday (couldn't even manage predictions last week. So There will not be questions this week as it is already Wednesday and I cannot quite manage it yet. 

 

What I may try going forward for this game, is that I will set questions biweekly, but a few more of them and they will cover two weeks. 

 

Try something different as this is just a test run for summer in many ways.

 

sorry again all

Like others have said, go at whatever pace you feel is sustainable. Personally I think biweekly is kind of fun since then some are forecasting 8 days ahead, which is a bit of a middle ground between the full season stuff and the 1 day ahead stuff.

Also, since I figure folks getting pinged in this thread are especially inclined toward BO games, going to take this opportunity to plug the Fantasy Movie League, which I have been running on a weekly basis for a while now. If you haven’t played before the tl;dr is:

15 movies (or days, or combinations of movies) available to play

Each has a certain price

You pick up to 8 (including possible duplciates) with total cost less than 1000

your weekly score is the sum of the movies you played, + some bonuses for playing the one with the best price performance ratio and penalty for playing less than 8

There’s a calculator (linked on top row of sheet) to easily investigate the highest scoring lines given a gross for each of the options

locks at noon eastern time (listed on sheet)

 

The official version from noovie that you may have heard of before had a slick UI, but the player run version for covid times just works on sheets. Feel free to claim a column at the end of the sheet — winter season starts with Encanto, so there are two weeks at the end of fall here to dip your toe in if it sounds interesting.

Man, get a load of these preseason NWH predictions :hahaha:


My entire game is moot at this point because I did all of my predictions off of the assumption that everything was going to move because we were going to have a month-long industry strike. C’est la vie.

I know this iteration did not go exactly as planned, but it shall be marked and a leaderboard revealed by the end of the weekend. 

 

(Possibly in a crazy way that does not use the letter 'A' as my desktop keyboard that I usually do reveals and such on is still broken and not replaced.
