The "Remember Some Guys" 1DS seems like a good one for this crowd. Did anyone participate? I didn't submit my answers, but did surprisingly poorly.

I looked at it but sadly remembered way too few guys (and gals).

I didn't do great on the guys one. I wish I could participate in the 60's music one. I've been doing better than average on those.

Having a grand ol' time in that mini-league. Could eke out a title if things go well.

Forgot to sign up for that ML, I am doing the Stuff or Else one which is pretty fun. Annoyed I missed one of the baseball players. ( I know I've seen the picture of Curt Flood before!)

Meant to do the 80s cartoons but weekends had me forgetting.

Since my last name begins with B, I will enjoy being as high in the standings as I will probably ever be.

I think anyone who wasn't so distracted that they forgot to play should get a win today.

It's a hell of a time to start a season, that's for sure.

(I've submitted though.)

I have a quick question. When looking at previous seasons, they always have the category listed before the question. Does this not happen during the season real time?

Categories are not revealed until the next day. And even then, some of them are...blurry.

There's a podcast that goes over the previous day's questions that is worth checking out, Umbrella. It is listed in the member podcast part of Learned League.

Learnedlag. Is the name of it. Husband and wife talk about the questions and their reasoning to get there.

Got my first 3 pointer today, surprisingly on the "panic" question. I assigned that one 0, thinking everyone would get it.

It's looking like this season's rookie class in division 2 is weaker than most seasons. I thought I would come out of in E, maybe barely sneaking into D. Right now I'm sitting low C. But I haven't played any of the top players yet.

I have twelve players in my tracker, including myself. Five of us are 2-4-1. Four more are 3-3-1.

I just showed up on Hinterland's leaderboard for the Dawkins award. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing.

Just dealt top guy in Hinterland C:1 their first loss of the season.

Amazing what avoiding forfeits will do to your record

I'm on the relegation bubble from Hinterland B... some spotty play and some bad luck, it seems. The guy in 2nd place has gotten a pretty uninspiring 40 correct answers but stands at 8-3-2... I have 51 correct and am at 5-7-1.

My record in Rundle B is below .500 so this in keeping... just sort of frustrating. I am not dedicated like Mr cuervo, whom I admire for his dedication.

Thank you. Though especially with both kids in college, it's not like I have a whole lot better to do.

5-5-3 record. 13th place out of 28 players. Point differential of 0.

I am the perfect example of average.

Also on the relegation bubble in Hinterland B--only 42 correct answers and 4-7-2, but my defense has improved, at least.

Some days you have to be perfect. Nicely done. I had zero clue on the Upanishads. The fact that I got a business question AND an art question in the same day, almost makes up for the loss.

Thank you!

The BUS/ECON question wasn't even classified as such - it was AMER HIST! Which kind of rankles me because my BUS/ECON get rate stinks and could use the help!

But yeah, it was a good set for me. 'Upanishads' was part of a NAQT page that I'd turned into flashcards; w/o that I wouldn't have gotten it. Even then I fat-fingered typing in the answer - UPDANISHADS* - but got a favorable commish ruling on it (though I did sweat it).

* I need to be more careful with this Mac keyboard; guess it's pretty sensitive.

Once again fighting relegation from C to D.

Got 5/6 this morning, though, so that's nice.

It'll be a race to the finish.

I've been in D the entire time, I've also never really spent any time studying or trying to improve, and some days have to answer questions quickly/distracted/very tired due to the flow of my day, so my performance has been pretty erratic. I have had a few seasons where I finished top 10 and was reasonably close to promotion. I'm off to my best start ever and in 4th, playing good defense and near the top of my rundle in TCA... fingers crossed to keep it up, since most everyone I know has promoted to C.

I think, barring something unusual, I'm going to end up placed in D. Of the 8 matches remaining, 4 players are better than me, 2 are worse, and 2 are serial forfeiters. I was flirting with C for a while, but if I ended up there, I'd probably get slaughtered.

QS is all but safe in Hinterland B (I helped out by going 6/6 against somebody on his heels).

My last point of interest for the rundle is seeing if ZickC hangs on to promotion in incredibly lucky fashion.

I'm 1 point behind for the last promotion slot to get out of D and into C. I got 4 right today, the #4 guy is playing the #2 guy so maybe he'll lose. Fingers Crossed.

I must be super easy to defend against, as I only have two 3-pointers all season long.

I ended up finishing the rookie season on a 4-0-1 run, which moved me up to C. My lack of geography knowledge paid off as I got assigned a high point value for the Black Sea question I actually knew (thanks Diplomacy!), giving me the win and moving up in the standings.

I'm not feeling great about how next season will go, as I think my high finish was more a product of a weak rookie class filled with a bunch of forfeits. I think my issue is that the categories I do well in, I do real well, and the categories I'm bad at, I'm horrible. I was third lowest in PCAA, so defending me is not a challenge.
