Re: 2008 Standings

Mincheff won his second title in three weeks in the 27th round.
Meanwhile Labamba is close to deciding the championship (he is also doing well in the next round). Although Labamba has been helped by keqtqiadv missing two weeks, there is no doubt he will be a deserved winner.

Re: 2008 Standings, Labamba succesfully defends title :worship:

After 29 rounds, Labamba has decided the championship and defends his title. Congratulations Ville!

What is interesting is that Labamba started slowly and did not achieve better than 5th place in any of the first ten rounds despite consistently scoring some points...but then he stepped up and went on to win five rounds and get 2nd place two times, which no-one has come near to over the whole season.

The last two rounds were particularly good for two relative newcomers from the US, Glab311 and Snoo Foo, well done.

Only one round is left, in which JMG still has a chance to take second place in the overall standings with a good round. Labamba still needs to score points one more time to attain the record of having scored points every round.

Re: 2008 Standings, Labamba succesfully defends title :worship:

The final round saw some shifts in the places 7-10 with seulCONTREtous rising to 7th place. Glab311 completed a very impressive last three rounds.

Labamba has won the season with a 44 point lead from keqtqiadv. So it is very unlikely that keqtqiadv would have been able to come to close to Labamba if he had not missed two rounds. In all respects Labamba is the deserving champion.

Medal Table




Note: There's an obvious error in the table, Labamba has five titles, not four.

Thank you very much Gotta say your work here and in the other games has been nothing short of brilliant this year, respect!

I didn't expect to defend my title and for the large part of the season it looked like one of my two main rivals Murilo or Jan would take it. Then I found my old form, though winning 5 rounds was surprising to me. Not sure if I'll continue next year, but this really is a fun game and a great way to test your knowledge of the challenger circuit.
