  1910 killed the NC star Wed, 15 November 2006 12:39
Hi

Reading most of the english threads, the german forum and some french writings, there are 2 main reasons that the NC is almost dead this year.

1. 4 german teams in semi.
2. DOW brought us 1910 and the separated rankings.

For 2: The moment of this release was not really a good one. Everybody is now eager to try the new variants or playing for the new rankings.

For 1: I hope that some of our foreign friends will watch the upcoming german play-off games and did not lose all interest. I think we will have very interesting games with a lot of 1700+ players involved.

Come on, more enthusiasm for the NC. It's not over yet!

bye, erps

Anyway there will be enough watchers for the GERMAN OPEN and I think its good for the T2R community - why? Imagine the french would have been in FINAL!?!?

I'm still hoping to see some exciting NC matches. It's a bit long waiting for the semi-final line-ups though!!
It's already 3 days since last match. That way also people may lose interest.

By the way, I can't help myself mentioning this: 3 of the semi-finalists and very nearly all four (!) came from group A, so we from team Orange feel we are about fifth Laughing

Np personal favourites of mine left so just give us good exciting matches please and NO BOTS.

The reason I think its dead is that we found the best nation, it's Germany.

The rest of the tournament is just a matter of which germans win the DoW prizes.

The 1910 expansion doesn't help either.

Helloooooooooooooo???????? NC-Stars????????

Is there any information when the semis will be played? And who plays whom when?
Is there any information when the final will be?
Is there any comment on the upcoming matches in any forum?

I keep looking for that because I'd like to see the games.
But it seems the GERMAN OPEN should rather be called GERMAN CLOSED (when it comes to information).

So meanwhile I play 1910 Rolling Eyes

new odds based on ELO differential and probability

Rethink over OLE 83%
GTS over Underdogs 65%

New version of the NC Playoff Results file at shamogi's includes opponents records against each other in rated USA-2 games since April 1, '06

Observations:
Did anyone else laugh when they saw the matchup of deep_blue and rudi69?

of opps with uneven recent records the biggest are
mudda over Adriano 16-0-7
sebbo over U 31 9-0-2
womble over shamogi 7-0-2

Two pairs have not played recently, if at all, rated USA-2
WhiteTrain and WW
Train and volleytom

What happened to Star Ticket?

oh, and OLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
