By the way acsc, can we have an update on how many "points" each player has for purchasing immunities, etc.

 

After week 3 I had 65, so after Week 4 I should have 95 since I got all 3 Part 2 questions right.

Yes, I will do that probably tomorrow, but definitely Monday with scores. Also, there may or may not be a huge surprise this week.

I predicted 50k. I was going to go higher but I decided to play it safe. Oh well.

SHIT, I'm such a fucking idiot. For the question about DMD, I managed to mistype my answer and write 7.285 million despite it having grossed 7.24 by this Wednesday..... I meant to write 9.285 million and that would've been spot on. :(:(:(

Actual: 10.18

GOLD: 

Glassfairy- 9.39

5% bonus next week, immune this week

SILVER:

Fakhir- 11.0

BRONZE:

You were asked to predict the following:

 

 

Part 1

 

The Call's Saturday gross minus its Friday gross- .664m

 

Spring Breakers' 3 day PTA- 87,667

 

Oz's Sunday drop FROM LAST SUNDAY- 47.1%

 

Dead Man Down's domestic cume through Sunday- 9.37

 

Part 2- 10 points each

 

1. Will Oz drop O/U 55%? UNDER

 

2. How many films will gross more than 10m this weekend? 3 

 

3. Will The Call open top 3? YES 

 

 

Part 3: Placements- 1% point each added to this week's score

 

1- Oz

3- Burt Wonderstone

5- Identity Thief

7- 21&Over

12- TLE2 

 

Team A

Spaghetti: 82.86

Simionski: 78.71

CEDAR: 59.51

Team Average: 73.69

 

Team B

ChD- 55.92

Punishment- 59.46

Glassfairy- 63.98

Team Average: 59.78 

 

Team C

Alfred: 74.28

Iceroll: 58.95

Michael G Scott: 44.81

Team Average: 59.35

 

Team D

riczhang: 76.19

CJohn: 28.74

DoctorWho: 77.91

Team Average: 60.95

 

Team E

4815162342: 75.79

Goffe: 28.73 (placeholder)

Fakhir: 56.47

Team Average: 53.66

 

Wait, what?! That's right, we are now broken up into 5 teams of 3! With the exception of Team E, all teams have one player from each "game". Also, if you want to be referred to as something other than TEAM 'LETTER', you'll need to let me know. I will be creating a new PM for each Team to correspond with me. Spaghetti, once again, you were the highest score of the week, and therefore get to pick three players for elimination this week. Points will be updated in a few minutes so you know where you guys sit. 

 

Strikes (3 and you're out!)

Fakhir (1)

Iceroll (1)

glassfairy (1)

Simionski (1)

Goffe (1)

Suspicious of the timing of the sudden team change-up. Convenient to happen after final numbers come in. Especially since we have no way of knowing how the teams were chosen or when they were chosen.

 

And yes I am saying this because I wound up with a no-show and ended up with the worst team score as a result.

I meant to clarify in my post. I chose teams without looking at any scores. picked one person from each team until I had you, goffe, and fakhir left. I said there was gonna be a change up Saturday, so it's not like I just made my decision today.

Fair enough, but the method of choosing how to pick a person from each team is opaque and still invites some skepticism. Was it totally random, was it trying to balance teams with prediction skills, etc.

I tried to make is as random as possible. If I noticed a team had three players who consistently do well, I tried to change it up without fully messing with the system. For example, I would not have put you, spaghetti, and say CEDAR on the same team, as you all scored above 90% last week. Also, I think I did pretty well, considering three teams were withing 1 point of each other.

I think the highest scorers of each team should be immune. ;)  I don't fancy facing a possible elimination against Numbers when both of us had decent scores in our team.
