Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

TO MAKE AN ENTRY, PM BROWNSFAN82. Your entry is not official until Brownsfan82 confirms it.

Hey all,

Since the championship has already sold out, I figure we may as well start hashing out who's playing and what their points values should be.

We will have prize support.

To allow for the grade inflation that naturally happens during the pre-pick discussion, I've raised the points allowed from 70 to 80. Other than that, I've kept the rules the same:
Spoiler Alert!


The main point of having his up right now is to try to get the players list right, and to discuss/refine/trashtalk the points values for the players.

Here's what I have right now. I've included everyone in the "who's going" thread, plus anyone else I know for sure is going. Points are carryovers from 2010, or 2009 for those who weren't there in 2010.

Re: Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

I'd agree with the changes to wdgrant and Tiny Timmy. Both have excellent tournament skills and were Day 2 participants, as well as regular powerhouses in the local scene. IMHO tom should not be priced the same as Eternalthanos86. One has a looooong history of success and the other a very short one. To be priced the same means one is overpriced or the other is underpriced. I'd hope for the latter.

Re: Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

I'm a good player, as jschild, Deroche, Brownsfan, and NecroBlade can say.

I think I should be worth 10-15 pts, if I can make the points for myself.

Again, you can ask jschild, Deroche, Brownsfan and NecroBlade to come up for points for me.

Re: Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

That guy who won last year probably raised his stock 5-10 pts.

Drizzt Do'Urden and Guenhwyvar keep on giving.
I recommend everyone try Darth Vader's Massivescape suggestions.

Re: Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

See I'm not sure the point system will work as well this time. There's no way the army I'm bringing is worth 35 points. I'm taking this reverse the whip thing seriously and if I make day 2 with the army I'm bringing I want to own the house, so my day 1 army isn't going to be near as powerful as it could be. The way I'm looking at it is man if I make day 2 the championship is mine, and if I don't that's totally cool with me anyway because there's a dragon dice event I really want to play in Saturday morning.

And I know a few of the Nebraska Scapers have the same mind set.

Also JUSTchris and Raider30 are playing in the main event.

Re: Gencon 2011 Main Event Fantasy Contest

I am planning the same way, Matthias, and I'm sure others are as well. However, the big points are for doing well on day 2, not for going 5-0 and losing in the first round on day 2. So I don't think this really misrepresents things. Some people are going to either go 2-3, or make a deep run on day 2. It's high risk, high reward, and that's fine.

Reverse The Whip normalizes for army strength, but the skills of the players still matter.

At any rate, if nobody thinks anyone is worth 30+ in this format, then we'll find that out and the prices of the most decorated players will go down.

I assume JUSTchris is Chris M, and therefore worth at least 15?
