    Do I get extra points for predicting Bayley on RAW? :P

    Raw has finished for another week and what a dramatic 24 hours it's been since the last update. Now it's time to check how everyone fared for last night's show and see how our league table looks. Read on for more...



    *Note - Raw spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of Raw.*



    Monday Night Raw scores



    beakerjoe..............................20 pts
    Mr.Nice Guy...........................13 pts
    Cheese Wagstaff.....................11 pts
    Kankan14..............................10 pts
    LeeJM...................................10 pts
    paulie21................................10 pts
    daithi1989..............................6 pts
    WinnyThePoo..........................6 pts
    DM_7....................................2 pts
    A Brad Maddox Guy..................1 pt
    Gaw_.....................................1 pt
    Bounty Hunter..........................1 pt




    Raw Fallout


    There is a dramatic change of fortune for beakerjoe who goes from the lowest score for Summerslam, to having the highest score by some margin for Raw. Wins for his captain Braun Strowman, Big Cass and Seth Rollins, plus an appearance point from Rusev, got him his score.

    I managed the second highest score via wins from Strowman, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.

    This was a difficult night with injuries to Finn Balor and Sasha Banks causing problems, plus no-shows from Nia Jax and Cesaro.

    The average score for Raw was 8 points.




    And now to see what these scores mean for our overall league table...




    Gameweek 3 Standings (Post-Raw)


    1. paulie21.......................................................................83 points

    2. DM_7...........................................................................73 points

    3. Bounty Hunter................................................................71 points

    4. Cheese Wagstaff.............................................................70 points

    5. A Brad Maddox Guy.........................................................69 points

    6. LeeJM...........................................................................61 points

    = Mr.Nice Guy....................................................................61 points

    7. daithi1989.....................................................................58 points

    = WinnyThePoo..................................................................58 points

    8. beakerjoe......................................................................54 points

    9. Kankan14......................................................................52 points

    10. Gaw_..........................................................................33 points




    League Fallout

    It is paulie21 that continues to set the pace as he strengthens his lead at the top.

    Other movement sees Cheese Wagstaff edge into the top four, whilst LeeJM and myself leapfrog daithi1989 and WinnyThePoo for a share of sixth place. The highest score for Raw from beakerjoe also sees him move ahead of Kankan14.

    So quite a bit of change, but how will things look after Smackdown?

    Raw results

    Seth Rollins defeated Sami Zayn.

    Kevin Owens defeated Neville.

    Big E defeated Karl Anderson.

    Big Cass defeated Rusev.

    Bayley defeated Dana Brooke.

    Braun Strowman defeated Johnny Knockout.

    Roman Reigns defeated Chris Jericho.

    220px-Bayley_NXT_Takeover_Dallas_2016.jpg


    Yes, it's Bayley - I aim to do a roster update tomorrow and I plan on making Bayley, and also Nikki Bella, available for selection. I will place both women in the Main Event tier.



    Want to join in?


    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome. There is a very popular Cup contest starting next week that runs alongside the league where players will take on one another in matches, so now is a great time to sign up and secure a spot. To sign up simply pick a squad and you're in.


    That wraps up the Raw update. Over to Smackdown now for the final show of this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    if you need another player from next week id be interested - pity i only seen it now :(

    Sure, new players are always welcome.

    Stick up a line-up when you're ready and I'll add you in for Gameweek 4 onwards.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I will have the Smackdown update posted up in a short while but before that, as promised, I want to make some new arrivals available for selection ahead of Gameweek #4. I also want to DELETE those who are on the shelf at the moment.




    IN


    170px-Bayley_WrestleMania_Axxess_2015_%28cropped2%29.jpg

    Bayley


    Raw's newest signing, Bayley, will now be available for selection in the Main Event Tier. Will she charm her way into your line-up?




    220px-Nikki_Bella_live_event_April_2015.jpg

    Nikki Bella


    Smackdown's newest woman will also be available for selection in the Main Event Tier. Are you going to be jumping on the Bella bandwagon?




    220px-Heath_Slater_WrestleMania_32_Axxess.jpg

    Heath Slater

    With Slater pencilled in for a match in Smackdown's tag tournament next week, I am therefore adding him to the game at long last. He will be available for selection in the Lower Tier.

    Will you be signing up the 'hottest free agent'?



    And now to those who will no longer be available for selection...



    OUT


    220px-Shelton_Benjamin_ROH_Cropped.jpg

    Shelton Benjamin


    Having added Shelton to the game when his return seemed imminent, it subsequently emerged that he had a torn rotator cuff which required surgery. It's unknown when he will be back so, for now at least, he is no longer available for selection.



    220px-Finn_Balor_Wm31Axxess.jpg

    Finn Bálor

    With our game ending in early December, and Finn scheduled to be missing for six months, we can say it's pretty much a certainty that Finn will not be wrestling any more matches in 2016. And with that being the case, he will also no longer be available for selection.

    250px-WWE_SmackDown_Live_2016_logo.png


    Smackdown Live has finished for the week and that means we have reached the end of Week 3.

    Below I will post the highest scores for Smackdown and go on to reveal the overall standings. Read on for the latest...



    *Note - Smackdown Live spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of Smackdown.*



    Smackdown Live scores



    Bounty Hunter..........................16 pts
    A Brad Maddox Guy...................10 pts
    DM_7......................................9 pts
    Mr.Nice Guy..............................9 pts
    Cheese Wagstaff........................5 pts
    Gaw_.......................................5 pts
    LeeJM......................................5 pts
    beakerjoe.................................4 pts
    daithi1989.................................0 pts
    Kankan14..................................0 pts
    paulie21....................................0 pts
    WinnyThePoo..............................0 pts




    Smackdown Fallout

    It is Bounty Hunter that gets the best score for Smackdown with a big total of 16 points; wins for his captain Chad Gable, plus his Lower Tier pick Jey Uso, got him the hefty haul.

    A Brad Maddox Guy got the next best score with his captain Chad Gable solely responsible.

    This was a difficult show to score points with a lot of angles and only four matches taking place.

    The average for Smackdown was just 5 points.




    And now let's assess where we stand in the overall league table...



    Gameweek 3 Standings


    1. Bounty Hunter...............................................................87 points

    2. paulie21.......................................................................83 points

    3. DM_7...........................................................................82 points

    4. A Brad Maddox Guy........................................................79 points

    5. Cheese Wagstaff............................................................75 points

    6. Mr.Nice Guy...................................................................70 points

    7. LeeJM...........................................................................66 points

    8. beakerjoe......................................................................58 points

    = daithi1989......................................................................58 points

    = WinnyThePoo..................................................................58 points

    9. Kankan14......................................................................52 points

    10. Gaw_..........................................................................38 points



    League Fallout

    We have a new player at the top as Bounty Hunter moves into first place on the back of his great Smackdown score.

    Other movement sees A Brad Maddox Guy return to fourth place, myself moving into sixth place, and beakerjoe taking a share of eighth spot.

    Our newest member Gaw finishes his first week not far behind those ahead of him.

    (Note - as previously stated, the seeding for the Cup game (more on that below) will be based on current league standings. That means Bounty Hunter, paulie21, and DM_7 will be considered top seeds since they're 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in our league going into Gameweek 4.)

    Smackdown results

    Becky Lynch defeated Alexa Bliss.

    The Usos defeated The Ascension,

    American Alpha defeated Breezango.

    AJ Styles defeated Dolph Ziggler.

    220px-Chad_Gable_NXT_Takeover_Dallas_2016.jpg

    American Alpha have been very good value the past few weeks. Are they entering must-have territory at the minute?




    On to Gameweek #4 (The Cup begins!)


    220px-1928_Sam_Maguire_cup%2C_GAA_museum.jpg
    LeeJM won last year


    Gameweek #4 features the return of the popular Fantasy Cup game which sees players take on one another in direct competition.

    This game will run alongside the regular league game we've been playing up to now. That means the squad you select for next week will therefore cover both the league and your Cup game simultaneously.

    I want to give time to people to join the game so I will hold off on announcing the brackets until Monday. I will reveal the details and format on Monday as well.




    Deadline


    For regular players who are already in the game, the deadline will be before Raw on Monday.

    But for those not playing but interested in joining in - I noticed the poster nasty_crash expressed an interest - I ask you to submit a team no later than Sunday evening.

    The reason being I need to know how many wish to be involved for the Cup which launches on Monday and without a squad submitted, I can't guarantee a place.


    Transfers and Captaincy

    You can make up to 2 transfers to your squad if you wish. These must be from the same tier. For example, a Main Event Tier performer for a Main Event Tier performer; an Upper Tier performer for an Upper Tier performer.

    Please outline who you are transferring out and transferring in when posting your squads to make it easier for me to follow.

    And don't forget to choose a captain who will score you double points.

    As I noted in my previous post, Bayley, Heath Slater and Nikki Bella are now available for selection.



    Want to join in?


    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome.

    As noted above, if you're not involved but would like to be, then submit a team before Sunday evening and you can play in both the league and Cup.

    After Monday, places for the Cup will be closed, though I will still accept people to play in the League.


    Good luck for the week ahead, folks. Gameweek #4 is now open for business.

    That's three transfers.

    Only two are allowed. ;)

    Edit: I just checked your team and I see you transferred in Jericho last week so I take it your two transfers are Dolph for Sasha and Slater for Titus.

    Yep, you can change your captain to whoever you want each week.

    *****PW Boards Fantasy Cup 2016*****



    It is officially Monday and as promised that means it's time to launch the 2016 edition of the PW Fantasy Cup.


    220px-1928_Sam_Maguire_cup%2C_GAA_museum.jpg
    LeeJM won the tournament last year



    Up to now we have been accumulating points each week in order to get as high as possible in the league, but now for the first time we will compete directly against one another, head to head, in this knock-out style tournament. These Cup ties will take place every second week, in addition to the league game we've been playing.

    How it works: the 12 players have been drawn to compete against one another in 3 groups of 4. The top 2 players in each group qualify automatically for the quarter-finals, while the remaining 2 spots shall go to the two best third-placed players.

    Down below you will find what I hope is a useful Q&A about the Cup which I posted for last year's game (the format was the same then).

    Now it's time to see who you have been drawn against...


    Groups and Fixtures


    Group A


    paulie21
    Mr.Nice Guy
    LeeJM
    Gaw_



    Gameweek #4 (This upcoming week)

    Gameweek #6

    Cheese Wagstaff vs Bounty Hunter
    WinnyThePoo vs beakerjoe


    Gameweek #8

    Cheese Wagstaff vs WinnyThePoo
    Bounty Hunter vs beakerjoe






    Draw Fallout

    Last year's Cup winner LeeJM begins his defence in Group A, where he once again features in a group with myself, just like last year, as well as two new participants in the Cup game: paulie21 and Gaw_.

    It's a similar story in Group B which features last year's runner-up DM_7, sharing a group with A Brad Maddox Guy - again like last year - plus two new players: daithi1989 and Kankan14.

    Group C features three returning players from the Cup: Bounty Hunter and Cheese Wagstaff (who also both shared a group last year), as well as beakerjoe. There's a new entrant in the form of WinnyThePoo.

    So a nice mixture of old rivalries and fresh matches.



    Some Q & A on the game...
    Will this Cup game affect the league game that has been running up to now?

    No, the league is separate and will continue to run each week. This Cup game is in addition to that game and it will run every second week.
    Will we have to pick two squads for the Cup and the League?

    No. The seven-person squad you submit each week will be used for both the League AND the Cup on Cup weeks.
    How are the matches decided?

    The player with the most points from his squad wins the tie and gains 3 points. If it's a draw, then both players share one point. There's nothing for a loss.
    How is qualification from the groups determined?

    Qualification shall be determined in the following ways:

    - The player with the most points from the group games advances.

    - In the event that players share the same group points, then the player with the highest overall score from his seven-person squad advances.

    - In the event that both players share the same overall scores from their squads, then the head-to-head record determines who advances.

    - In the event that the head-to-head record fails to settle it, then the player with the best score from his captaincy choices throughout the group shall advance.

    - In the unlikely event that all of the above fails to settle it, then a special one-off tie will determine who advances.
    How will the quarter-finals operate?

    The quarter-finals will be seeded with each group winner and the best runner-up being top seeds. Those who met in the group stages will be kept apart for the Q-F draw.

    Both the quarter-finals and the semi-finals will be two-legged affairs, whereas in the group stages we'll play each other just once.

    I hope that clears up any questions you may have. If not, feel free to ask away.

    Don't forget if you haven't already submitted a squad for this week that you have up until the start of Monday Night Raw to do so.



    Good Luck


    Best of luck to you in your match-ups. It should hopefully make Raw and Smackdown even more interesting. Here is a reminder of the matches ahead this week:

    Monday Night Raw has come and gone and what an eventful show it was. This week also marks the beginning of our Cup game and below you will find the latest scores in the Cup ties, as well as what Raw has meant for our league table. Read on for all the latest...



    *Note - Raw spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of Raw.*


    PW Fantasy Cup (Latest Scores)

    Group A

    paulie21 9 - 13 Mr.Nice Guy
    Gaw_ 7 - 11 LeeJM


    Group B

    A Brad Maddox Guy 12 - 14 daithi1989
    DM_7 9 - 9 Kankan14


    Group C

    WinnyThePoo 3 - 11 Bounty Hunter
    beakerjoe 22 - 11 Cheese Wagstaff




    Cup Fallout

    With Smackdown still to come, it's pretty much half-time in the ties and we can see most ties look in the balance. As for the ones that do not, players who played the Cup last year will recall that these ties can swing dramatically the other way, so I wouldn't bet on anyone having secured the result just yet.

    As you can see, the highest score for Raw went to beakerjoe; the majority of his points came from his captain Braun Strowman, plus wins for Bayley and his Lower Tier pick Darren Young. The second highest score went to daithi1989 who got most of his points via wins from Kevin Owens, Nia Jax and Sami Zayn.

    The average score for Raw was 11 points.



    And now let's see how the Raw scores have left our league table...




    Gameweek 4 Standings (Post-Raw)


    1. Bounty Hunter...............................................................98 points

    2. paulie21.......................................................................92 points

    3. A Brad Maddox Guy........................................................91 points

    4. Cheese Wagstaff............................................................86 points

    5. Mr.Nice Guy...................................................................83 points

    Yes, Kevin Owens is now the man on top of the mountain but is only owned by 3 players. Will we now see a spike in transfers for him?

    The most popular picks for each tier going into this week were Seth Rollins for the Main Event Tier (6), Neville for the Upper Tier (6), and Heath Slater for the Lower Tier (5).

    League Fallout

    There's plenty of noteworthy developments following Smackdown, but in particular DM_7 charging his way to the top following his great Smackdown score. Both he and paulie21 are the first players to break the century mark in the game.

    Other movement sees last year's champ Cheese Wagstaff rise to joint third, whilst LeeJM also climbs after his impressive Smackdown score.

    Meanwhile in the Deletion Zone, WinnyThePoo edges in front of Kankan14.

    Smackdown results

    Hype Bros defeated The Vaudevillains.

    AJ Styles defeated Apollo Crews.

    Natalya and Alexa Bliss defeated Naomi and Becky Lynch.

    Heath Slater and Rhyno defeated The Headbangers.

    Baron Corbin defeated Dean Ambrose via D.Q.*


    *That main event result was initially described on WWE's website as a Dean Ambrose win after Smackdown ended. I found that weird as AJ clearly hit Corbin when he interfered and usually the guy that gets struck is ruled the winner via D.Q. I decided to wait until today to see if the website altered that and, sure enough, they are now recording it as a Corbin win - which I think is the right call. Just thought I'd point that out in case anyone was as confused as I was.

    Speaking of Corbin, no player has him in their line-up. Is it time to consider the big man going forward, I wonder?

    Now, finally, it's time to assess how we all did in the first game of the Cup. Smackdown's scores have now been added to the Raw scores so what follows below are the final scores. How did you get on?

    Bounty Hunter vs beakerjoe




    Cup Fallout


    In Group A, reigning Cup champ LeeJM starts off in impressive fashion and tops his group. Sitting in second is paulie21 who swung our tie around to beat me. (If only Naomi had won then I'd have taken the tie, but that's the way it goes. Congrats.)

    In Group B, last year's Cup runner-up DM_7 starts off in style with a strong win, as does daithi1989.

    In Group C, we have surely the tie of the round as beakerjoe and Cheese Wagstaff both produce great scores, but beakerjoe edges it to take the 3 points. In the other tie, it's a low-scoring affair but what matters is the 3 points and that goes to Bounty Hunter by the tightest of margins.

    A reminder that the spots in the quarter-finals go to the top 2 in each group, plus the 2 best third-placed players.

    There is still a long way to go but those who started with losses will need to get points on the board soon. The next ties will take place in two weeks.




    On to Gameweek #5



    Deadline



    The deadline will be before the start of Monday Night Raw.


    Transfers and Captaincy


    You can make up to 2 transfers to your squad if you wish. These must be from the same tier. For example, a Main Event Tier performer for a Main Event Tier performer; an Upper Tier performer for an Upper Tier performer.

    Please outline who you are transferring out and transferring in when posting your squads to make it easier for me to follow.

    And don't forget to choose a captain who will score you double points.


    Want to join in?


    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome. Places for the Cup are now closed but we will still accept players for the league. To sign up simply select a squad from the roster and you're in.


    Good luck for the week ahead folks as we now turn all our attention back on the league. Gameweek #5 is now open for business.
