also i'd say there are "better" games, and there are certainly games where several people play well and the votes are split among a few good candidates who'd get snubbed by a top-X cutoff

it'd have to align with some restructuring of voting

It could always be weighted

Sure, but there’s always going to be a cutoffline and the person directly below it will be snubbed. 17/18 are probably very close in skill, maybe 18 wins 7/10 games against 17, but since our sample size is one game, flaws are inherent with the system.

That’s why one and dones are exciting. Sometimes a player might have an outstanding game. They should be recognized for that. Sometimes an outstanding player has a bad game, tough luck see ya next year.

Zara and I made the subs list for any wilds who can't play. Still a bit surprising, as I've really POed half the jury.

Guess that means you're out of the TWG here, huh?

Congrats though!

They haven't posted the wildcards schedule yet.
Looks like 16th, 19th, 23rd, 26th, 30th.

And it's official, I'll be joining the fray. All the wolves made it.

I can see this, but again he died before he could make anything happen.

In a one game system this shouldn't be rewarded, especially when you had other games where the humans swept and only 2 made it into wildcards.
