    I'll keep it at 1 lower tier pick for the week ahead but after that I've no problem boosting it to 2 picks.

    What do others think?

    First off the post above shows how much work you put into this so fair play to you and thanks man.

    On the quoted point I'm all good either way. I have thought i'd like more lower tier picks but maybe Joe highlighting that he always has trouble picking his could actually be a positive and makes it more challenging to pick up points. This was highlighted this week as a lot of people dropped people to get Swagger who only did commentary.

    Either way i'd be happy to go with whatever even if it means more points available for people and thus it being easier to catch the leaders. That said even though im currently (only just after SD) 2nd DM has really been flying up top so far

    I dont necessarily disagree with BK but I would be all for leaving it at one selection.

    To me its part of the challenge in finding the right one out of all the options. For example in fantasy football you have two goalkeepers both are potential point scorers but you can only choose one and live with that choice.

    Basically its just fun trying to find the right balance as is.



    Edit: to echo what BH said you are doing trojan work as is (I'm sure its very time consuming?) and dont need more of a workload.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    Wow, Kankan and BH... You have made me doubt my own idea. Im actually all for staying at 1 lower pick now after reading your input.

    Wrestling, its a funny ol game.

    Popular Trends - GW 8



    Most popular Main Event Tier picks


    1. Kevin Owens 10

    2. AJ Styles 7

    3. Nia Jax 6








    Most popular Upper Tier picks


    1. TJ Perkins 9

    2. Cesaro 8

    2. The Miz 4








    Most popular Lower Tier picks


    1. Jack Swagger 5

    2. Bo Dallas /Jimmy Uso / Heath Slater 2





    Kevin Owens shoots to the top of the most popular Main Eventers, with Nia Jax also seeing a big growth in ownership. Interestingly Cesaro is now displaced at the top of the most popular Upper Tier picks by the debuting TJ Perkins. In the Lower Tier section, players have kept faith with Jack Swagger whose ownership number remains the same.

    As regards the Clash bonus, seven players believe there will be 2 title changes, and 3 titles retained; four players believe there will be 1 title change and 4 titles retained; with the remaining prediction being 3 title changes and 2 titles retained.

    It should be a fun few days as we see what happens. Good luck for the week ahead.

    Clash of Champions has concluded and that means we are 1/3 of the way through the gameweek. This is a big week with all 8 places in the quarter-finals of the Cup to be confirmed, plus we discover the latest ups and downs in our league table. Read on for all the latest...


    *Note - Clash of Champions spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of the PPV.*


    PW Fantasy Cup (Latest Scores)



    Group A

    Mr.Nice Guy 21 - 15 Gaw_
    LeeJM 20 - 22 paulie21



    Group B

    Kankan14 23 - 21 A Brad Maddox Guy
    daithi1989 17 - 14 DM_7



    Group C

    Cheese Wagstaff 6 - 14 WinnyThePoo
    Bounty Hunter 25 - 15 beakerjoe




    Fantasy Cup Fallout

    This week we had a Clash of Champions bonus where if you predicted the correct number of titles changed and retained you would pick up an extra 5 points. Four players correctly predicted that there would be 1 title change, and 4 titles retained. These players were: A Brad Maddox Guy, beakerjoe, Bounty Hunter and myself. Those bonus points have been added above.

    Looking at the ties so far, they seem to be very much in the balance. The ties between Kankan14 vs A Brad Maddox Guy, and Cheese Wagstaff vs WinnyThePoo will be fascinating since the player that loses those ties will be eliminated. To see what the latest group tables look like, see here.

    As you can see, Bounty Hunter got the highest score at the PPV; wins for his captain TJ Perkins, Kevin Owens, Nia Jax and getting the Clash bonus right brought home most of his points. Kankan14 got the second highest score; most of his points were thanks to wins from Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho and his captain Nia Jax.

    The average score for Clash of Champions was 18 points.





    Now let's see what it all means for our league table...

    League Fallout

    DM_7 remains on top of the table but the leading margin has been reduced to 8 points. A Brad Maddox Guy has moved up to fourth place while I have also moved up a spot.

    The New Day are on quite the roll yet no player has a member in their side. Is it time to consider a transfer?

    That's it for the Clash of Champions update. On we go to Raw...

    250px-WWE_Raw_%2825-07-2016%29_-_Logo.png



    Raw has wrapped up for the week and that brings us one step closer to finding out the full line-up for the Fantasy Cup quarter-finals. As well as that we have the latest twists and turns in our league table. I'll begin first with the scores from last night's show. Read on for the latest news...


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

    Monday Night Raw scores



    Bounty Hunter.............................19 pts

    beakerjoe.................................10 pts
    Cheese Wagstaff.........................9 pts






    Raw Fallout

    Bounty Hunter, daithi1989, Gaw_ and myself secure the highest score from Monday Night Raw. All of us got our points from the same three guys: Kevin Owens, TJ Perkins and Cesaro, with me sticking the captaincy on Cesaro and the other three players sticking it on Perkins.

    The average score for Raw this week was 15 points.




    Taking the above scores on board, let's now see how those Cup ties look...



    PW Fantasy Cup (Latest Scores)



    Group A

    Mr.Nice Guy 40 - 34 Gaw_
    LeeJM 35 - 37 paulie21



    Group B

    Kankan14 39 - 34 A Brad Maddox Guy
    daithi1989 36 - 25 DM_7



    Group C

    Cheese Wagstaff 15 - 28 WinnyThePoo
    Bounty Hunter 44 - 25 beakerjoe




    Fantasy Cup Fallout

    It's set up very nicely going into the final show tonight, Smackdown. In Group A there's very little in the ties. Only paulie21 is definitely through in this group.

    In Group B the must-win game between Kankan14 and A Brad Maddox Guy looks to be heading Kankan14's way with A Brad Maddox Guy only having AJ Styles left in play and a gap of five points to overturn. If Styles does double duty tonight then there would still be a chance.

    In Group C, the must-win game between Cheese Wagstaff and WinnyThePoo could still turn around with Cheese Wagstaff hoping his captain Jack Swagger picks up a win tonight to give him hope. Bounty Hunter looks to be in good shape for 3 points in his tie, although it would be tough for any player to deal with his form this week.

    The post featuring the latest group standings can be seen here.





    And last but not least, let's see how our league table looks following Raw...




    Gameweek 8 Standings (Post-Raw)


    1. Bounty Hunter...............................................................236 points

    = DM_7...........................................................................236 points

    2. paulie21.......................................................................224 points

    3. A Brad Maddox Guy........................................................212 points

    4. Mr.Nice Guy..................................................................211 points

    5. daithi1989....................................................................204 points

    6. Cheese Wagstaff............................................................198 points

    7. beakerjoe.....................................................................192 points

    8. LeeJM..........................................................................190 points

    9. Kankan14....................................................................188 points

    10. Gaw_.........................................................................168 points

    11. WinnyThePoo...............................................................145 points






    League Fallout

    No doubt the big news from Raw is Bounty Hunter going joint-top of the table alongside DM_7. It's very exciting up there at the minute and the question is, will either man secure top spot for himself after Smackdown?

    In other news, daithi1989 has climbed a spot following his strong score. It's quite exciting at the other end in the Deletion Zone too.


    Raw results


    Roman Reigns vs Rusev ended in a double count-out.

    Big E and Kofi defeated Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

    Bayley defeated Anna Fields.

    Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann defeated Lince Dorado and Drew Gulak.

    Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Nick Cutler and Willis Williams.

    TJ Perkins defeated Tony Nese.

    Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho defeated Enzo and Big Cass.

    220px-Sheamus_March_2015.jpg

    I wonder will this tag team storyline with Cesaro see a boost in Sheamus's ownership? He currently features in just one squad.

    Smackdown is over and so too is gameweek 8. There's a lot of news as we discover the full line-up of those who qualified for the Fantasy Cup quarter-finals, plus we check out the latest in our league table; but that's not all: I will reveal down below details on a brand spanking NEW tournament that is set to kick off next week. So then let's waste no more time and get into this, beginning with the scores from last night...



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

    Smackdown Fallout

    The highest score for Smackdown by some margin goes to DM_7, with his points coming from wins for his captain Jimmy Uso and AJ Styles.

    The second highest score goes to Gaw_ thanks to Jimmy Uso's win and appearances from Nikki Bella and Dean Ambrose.

    There were just three matches on Smackdown so unsurprisingly the average is a low one: 5 points.




    And now it's time to discover the results of the final group matches. Which players made it through?

    What a tight group this turned out to be and in the end it is myself and paulie21 who qualify in the top 2 automatic spots from this group.

    There were only 2 points in both of the final group games and this table could have looked very different had just one Raw or Smackdown result gone differently. It means LeeJM relies on the third-place route to advance (discover if he made it below) and sadly Gaw_ is eliminated.

    This was another group filled with drama. Look at how close those final matches were. It is DM_7 who tops the group with a 100 per cent record after a stunning turnaround. He trailed this tie by 11 points after Raw but managed to edge daithi1989 into second spot, who also qualifies automatically. Some good news for daithi1989 is that he is the best runner-up so will be classed as a top seed in the next round, along with the group winners.

    Kankan14 edges the must-win clash over A Brad Maddox Guy to give himself a chance in the third-place route as A Brad Maddox Guy is eliminated. Find out if he made it below.


    Group C

    Cheese Wagstaff 20 - 31 WinnyThePoo

    Bounty Hunter maintains his 100 per cent record and tops Group C with a strong win over nearest rival beakerjoe, who also qualifies automatically.

    WinnyThePoo won the must-win clash with Cheese Wagstaff, with last year's league champion given an early exit from the Cup, as WinnyThePoo relies on the third-place route to advance. See if he made it below.


    So we have our six group winners and runners-up definitely through to the quarter-finals: myself, paulie21, DM_7, daithi1989, Bounty Hunter and beakerjoe. Congratulations to all players.

    Now we must welcome the top two third-place teams who will take the final spots. And they are...

    Congratulations to LeeJM and Kankan14 who take the final two spots in the last 8. Commiserations to WinnyThePoo who achieved a fantastic result over Cheese Wagstaff but still winds up eliminated. Low scores in his first two group games proved costly for him in the end.

    So to review, here is the line-up:

    Top seeds

    Mr.Nice Guy (Group A winner)
    DM_7 (Group B winner)
    Bounty Hunter (Group C winner)
    daithi1989 (Best runner-up)


    2nd seeds

    paulie21 (Group A runner-up)
    beakerjoe (Group C runner-up)
    LeeJM (via third-place route)
    Kankan14 (via third-place route)


    Eliminated

    Gaw_
    A Brad Maddox Guy
    Cheese Wagstaff
    WinnyThePoo



    The quarter-finals will be over two legs and the first game will be in two week's time on Gameweek 10. I will do the draw for the quarter-finals next week when Gameweek 9 ends. Players who met in the group stage will be kept apart for the quarter-finals.

    League Fallout

    The big news at the end of the week concerns the league leader DM_7 who solidifies his position at the top with a margin of ten points.

    Not much else to report; it's as you were.

    Smackdown results


    The Usos and The Ascension defeated Heath Slater & Rhyno and American Alpha.

    Carmella and Natalya defeated Nikki Bella and Naomi.

    Missing: Have you seen this man?


    What happened to that big Jack Swagger push we were told about?! He remains the most popular Lower Tier pick but have his owners' patience run out?



    On to Gameweek #8 (a new tournament begins)

    PW Fantasy Tag Team Tournament


    260px-WWE_SmackDown_Tag_Titles.jpeg


    We have been battling for supremacy in our league, and we have competed directly against one another in the Fantasy Cup; now it is time for our newest challenge: teaming up to do battle!

    Yes starting this week I am debuting the PW Fantasy Tag Team Tournament which will see players partnered with a buddy in the league as they face off against the other teams.

    Every second week beginning in Gameweek 9 you and your buddy's score will be added together giving your team's total score. (e.g. Player A gets 20 pts, Player B gets 17 points, thus the total team score is 37 points).

    There will be no eliminations in Gameweek 9, but in Gameweek 11 we will have our first elimination as the bottom team on the tag team ladder is eliminated. In Gameweek 13, same thing: the bottom team on the ladder is eliminated. In Gameweek 15 we will have 2 semi-finals (one-off games) and the final will be set for Gameweek 17.

    How will you be assigned a tag team partner? Well I'll leave that to YOU.

    I have randomized all twelve players in our league. I want the first few players who submit their line-ups for the week to pick a number between 1 and 12 and that will be your buddy for the tournament. (If the number you select happens to be your own name then I'll just give the next name down.) By my reckoning after the first 5 submissions we should have the teams sorted, so it's first come, first pick.

    (Note - if anyone not currently playing wants to join in I will find a way to facilitate you for this tournament.)

    I hope that's straightforward. So the first few players who submit a team it should look like this:

    MAIN EVENT TIER - X
    MAIN EVENT TIER - X
    MAIN EVENT TIER - X

    UPPER TIER - X
    UPPER TIER - X
    UPPER TIER - X

    LOWER TIER - X

    Your captain: X

    I pick number __.


    I will then reveal who your tag team buddy will be for the week ahead. Remember there will be no eliminations this week coming but the lowest team in Gameweek 11 will be eliminated, so it's all about getting those points. The league will continue to run as normal.

    I think it will add an interesting new dynamic since now, on tag team weeks, if you have a bad week there will be a bit of guilt over the partner you're letting down. :pac:




    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.

    Once a team has been posted that team will be final and no edits will be allowed (unless there are exceptional circumstance, i.e. a wrestler gets hurt, or they are suspended).

    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 Fantasy Cup are now closed but we will still accept players for the league and for the new tag tournament about to start. To sign up simply select a squad from the roster here and you're in.


    Good luck for the week ahead and those of you who elect to submit teams early don't forget to pick a number between 1 and 12 too. Gameweek #9 is now open for business.

    So Kankan14 and beakerjoe are the first team to be established and will do battle together against everybody else. Perhaps it will be the start of a Jeri-KO like bromance. :cool:
