Now that regionals are over I thought it would be fun to start this topic up. So pick who you think the top 8 will be and in what order (no voting for yourself). If anyone gets it exactly right you get a Pint of beer on the house from me the night of the champs. So ya, awesome prize.

Here's my guess to get things going.

1. Greentime
2. Billiv15
3. thereisnotry
4. Echo
5. urbanjedi
6. spryguy1981
7. Hinbert
8. Making his first top 8 by tiebreaker......................Timmerb123

so you are saying that no one who makes t8 can win as they can't vote for themselves?

Seriously, I think Weeks' prediction was about right, though I guess I'd have to drop myself for him (since he did go 6-0 in Swiss last year).

2. Billiv15
3. Weeks

Fine, you get a choice of a pint or a custom mini.

Come on now no matt peterson he is like the king of the top 8?
05,06,07,08,11

Missed in 09 i think 14th(Beat me in the last round,5-2 but we didnt have the 3/2 system I know he would of made it that year if we had it)
Missed in 10 I think about the same( lost to Matt H in the final round and if he won pretty sure he would of been in)

Well if this list ends up being right, then I guess that means I won't have made the top 8, but at least a free beer is a good consolation prize.

5. Thereisnotry
6. spryguy1981

Curious that the defending champ hasn't figured into any list. Does this mean Jester007 is not attending this year?

Author:  thereisnotry [ Tue Jul 17, 2012 1:31 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Gencon Top 8 Players Predictions

Nobody has seen him in a long time, from what I've heard.

Author:  DarphNader [ Tue Jul 17, 2012 1:54 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Gencon Top 8 Players Predictions

I wouldn't count Ian out of the mix, should he be attending/defending.

4. Bill Russell
5. Daniel Stephens
6. Josh Hinkle
7. Wes Morgan
8. Matt Peterson
and the winner of the Tim Ballard award for the 9th place finish

I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say that DarphNader's going to be making a very strong run for the top 8. I've seen first hand the nefariousness of DarphNader's squad. And then went back for more 5 times. It's evil. It's absurd. It's madness. It's good, clean Soviet fun.

I will also say, that the theme song for this unnamed monstrosity is "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Jefferson Starship.

I'm just sayin'. :imperial:

6. fingersandteeth

Post subject:  Re: Gencon Top 8 Players Predictions

I like numbers, so I took the 8 suggestions so far and got averages for everyone mentioned. I just skipped you on your own entry (so it would be some number divided by 7 instead of 8), and if someone wasn't mentioned they just got a 9 for that entry.

Graham: 1.75
Weeks: 2.43
Trevor: 5
Jason: 5.375
Myself: 5.71 (tied with Spry)
Spryguy: 5.71 (tied with me)
Bill: 5.75
Tim: 6.875
Hinkbert: 7.75
Deri: 7.75
Ian: 8
Matt Peterson: 8
Wes: 8.71



So BIG expectations for both Graham and David, and then a whole lot of guys in the 5-6 range.

Post subject:  Re: Gencon Top 8 Players Predictions

I should start by asking if I vote for myself to get the Tim Ballard award, then that doesn't count as voting for myself right?

Here goes trying to make this guess wrong but if I Fail at that then here goes trying for a free beer.

Weeks
Billiv
Jason
Tim
Trevor
Danial
Spry
Grahm

And 9th
Jake/Sthlrd2/Me

Tile wars championship
Me vs Tim

Royal Rumble
Team Royal Rumble

Dynamic Duo
It's a crap shoot, who the hell can call that.
(whoever has the best luck with die rolls)

Scum and Villany sealed
Same thing as dynamic duo except whoever has the best booster draws.
