    Play a decider out of the leagues remit, 1000 point teams with any side at all, double blind (you both announce your side to a third party before telling each other to stop the "You took amazons? Yeah, well I'm taking dwarfs.").

    Even if you only got a draw, I'm pretty sure duff dropping out and saying "
    feel free to gift 'Hands the win" would put you on 2 points and him on 1 so you'd be in 3rd anyway.

    (Edit for bizarre linebreak insertion by forum software. No, apparently it's staying in. Oh well...)

    Oh yeah, that is also true. Well done chainsawhands for not being as flaked out as me on a friday afternoon. I don't feel so bad now. (Although I do like the idea of the double blind decider, it appears that will not be necessary).

    I was going to say it didn't matter anyway because Kelron was dropping out, by then I realised I wasn't sure if you did that before or after working out promotions and demotions, and then I remembered that the whole process was so madly complex that I had no idea how it worked... so I went for the simple points-based argument. ;-)

    I normally do promotion and demotions first, then promote an extra person up, so the demotion still stands and there's a double promotion from the division below. Its more fun that way (i think!). It slightly undermines things for people not to get demoted when they come bottom in their division, so this ensures they go down unless something exceptional happens (like I run out of good candidates to promote from the division below).

    I'll try to do the promotions tonight/tomorrow morning. I would expect the new season to start about midweek, if everyone is being efficient (you are efficient, right chaps and chapettes?).

    Hmm, so in Div 4...

    Kajo and I are tied for top place again!
    We even tied in our match against each other.
    We both got a default win vs Tom.
    We both defeated iNinja 2-1.
    So it's down to TD+Cas difference again... in other words, Cas difference. Dammit.

    Although I did better than normal on the Casualty front, somehow I doubt it's enough to beat Kajo's bashy necros :P

    I've got a positive difference on cas against you and ninja, though that +6 on your match will change things..

    Btw you know it doesn't matter, we will be in the same division again :p

    Very similar situation in Div7. DarkWeeble and me are tied in points.

    We both lost to PresterJohn,
    we both lost to Nullkigan (DarkWeeble 4-0, me 4-1, although only the loss counts),
    therefore it will be TD/casualty difference, which most likely will be in favour of DarkWeeble.

    Argh, so close.

    Whichever one of you won your game will take it, before it goes to further maths.

    Div 5 is interesting. Janek handily won, but the other three of us have a triangular tie at 3 points each. We all lost to Janek, but all beat one of the remaining and lost to one of the remaining. Head-to-head records don't work for triangular ties, so two scenarios that I see:

    #1: Ritashi's been incommunicado for going on three weeks now; it might make sense to declare him relegated, since that would make setting up next season easier (since he'll probably create a hole, it'd be lower down). But of course, that's not actually provided for in the rules. If we do that, then I beat Kapouille, which puts me 2nd, him 3rd.

    #2: Stick to the letter of the law, and not penalize him (aside from the two forfeits) for his disappearance. I think that goes to TDs + CAS difference. Adding all those up is pretty interesting. Ritashi never got his team hospitalized by Janek, and Kapouille, well, he was playing halflings. And Ritashi's glorious game against me overcame his forfeits :p. I count Ritashi at +1, myself at -2, and Kapouille at -22.

    PS: In-game, Janek & Ritashi's match hasn't yet been defaulted.

    OK guys n gals, spreadsheet has been updated for season 19!

    See where you are and get applying in-game. I had to default a few and settle a few tiebreaks, which, along with a couple of drop-outs from the top has meant a lot of second places got promoted throughout. So check out where you should be, withdraw your team from your current div (if necessary!) and apply for the new division. I'm hoping we can get going by midweek, cos I'm ambitious like that. If anyone else meant to drop out/reboot/return but didn't update the sheet, can you let me know in here ASAP. Likewise, any problems with the sheet/divisions, let me know quickly before too many people apply!

    Hmm from one high scoring division to probably another. Skaven, Skaven, High Elves and Norse.. I'm thinking the norse will be the bash team.

    I was on the very brink of rebooting for this season, but I told my guys they had to perform for the last game and damnit, they did. Just wouldn't be fair to leave them after that. Humans, Undead and Lizardmen - seems like it's going to be a speedy div. Maybe I should just play more aggressively, I swear I've scored more TDs in desperate two turn plays than I have receiving at the start of a half.

    Undead, Necromancy, Elf, Necromancy.
    Prize of 17 Internet points to the first person to identify the odd one out, no cash alternative.

    I am of course monstrously dissatisfied with my recruitment potential. But I'd like to say a few words for The Brain's Elves.

    They will be missed.
