Secondly, the standings do not include your two missed events. On that subject...
1.) That system did not deter attrition.
2.) My poor updates probably caused dropout.
3.) Fedorlei and I have both missed 1 event; so unless you really close the gap on Fedorlei this Saturday, tabulating those scores doesn't matter a whole lot; you would get 2 events scored, but then fedorlei would get 1 event scored, plus his lowest scoring event would be bumped up. Everyone would have a higher score, but the standings wouldn't change.
4.) So counting those missed picks doesn't truly help you make up ground, because it's offset by scoring other's missed picks, or lowest scoring events. I just wanted people to stick with it, not quit because they felt like they couldn't win if they missed the picks for an event.
The largest potential for change would be between Fe1 and Wandfight, because their scores are so tight.
Kaufmann / Spoon are close, but kaufmann would get an event scored, and spoon would have one of his poor outings bumped up. Probably wouldn't see a change; some of Spoon's scores are like missing a pick anyways
