Post by DumbJaques »

The OSU academic team is pleased to announce a mirror of Terrapin, to be held Sunday, December 4 at the Ohio State University (apparently you have to say "the" or the ghost of Woody Hayes appears and beats you to death with a a buckeye. Whatever that is).

This will be a regular difficulty tournament with a fantastic editing team helmed by Jordan Brownstein and Billy Busse. No packet is required. We expect to draw a substantial field, including title contenders Michigan and Chicago. For more information on the set, see the announcement at:

Hope to see everyone there!

As stated in the logistics email sent out earlier, the tournament will be held on the second floor of Enarson Classroom Building. For parking, the Tuttle Garage is the most convenient option. Check-in/registration will happen in Room 238 of Enarson and will take place from 8:15 to 8:45. The tournament is planned to start at 9:00.

EDIT: Full Stats have now been posted.

In the first game between Ohio State A and Chicago A, Ohio State is credited with 10.00 PPB and Chicago with 13.50 PPB. Is this an error? It doesn't seem right.

Chicago B is also dubiously credited with 8.93 PPB in our round 2 match against WashU B.

Thanks to OSU for hosting. Congrats to OSU, Chicago, Michigan and the other teams for their strong performances. Also, thanks to all the staff, particularly everyone who traveled to staff this. We had a really good time, and I don't think things would have gone so smoothly without having so many good moderators!

Finally, could Ophir (or whoever is dealing with stats at this point) change the player on our team currently listed as "Theona" to "Fiona." Thanks.

Yeah, there were apparently stats for those being recorded but I don't think they've been released -- is there any plan to do so?

They're in the Terrapin discussion forum.

EDIT: Wait, never mind, I don't think they're there. They'll probably have them out once the set is clear and posted, since it contains answers.

So, the set is clear and posted -- were these stats ever compiled?
