The 2021 Deathlist Cup

Recommended Posts

Well, there’s under 72 hours to enter into the cup, and here is all the teams that have entered in so far: 

 

  1. Annami vs dvsp84

  2. Baby Blue vs CalebH

  3. Djemba Djemba vs JoeMoneyPenny

  4. BuffaloPhil vs nantonian2013

  5. The Old Crem vs YorkshireBanker

  6. Markb4 vs Charles De Gaulle

  7. GreatUncleBulgaria vs Gooseberry Crumble

  8. ThereWillBeDeaths7 vs GuyFromFuture

  9. Perhaps vs xXConmanXx

Yes, there will be at least one match that will happen, and a few others with byes currently if their opponents don’t show. But there’s still time yet if you are one of those last minute submitters...

I’m glad I’m not playing I couldn’t find any good names in the hour I gave it.

So now there’s under ten minutes left to go, and I am still waiting on two teams who seem to have gone completely MIA, and frankly I doubt either of them will submit at this point. This is not the first time that someone did not submit their team on time if it still holds up, but it would be the first time it happened in round 1. 
This is really unacceptable from the two non submitters, and I’m not just saying this just because I’m the host. I have now sent four messages to both of the remaining members who have yet to send in a team, and they did not even respond to the messages I sent. So they will get disqualified if they don’t send in a team very quickly. 
Beyond that though, this sort of thing is really much more stressful in round 1. In the past when a team did not submit on time, there is usually a loser of some kind who gets brought into their place to replace the non submitted team, but because this is the first round, I can’t do that. So two teams now get a bye in round 1, and while it may be good for them to relax a bit, they also had to go through the pain of getting together a team, only for nothing to happen with them. Which means they wasted time to get something together. Beyond that, not only is it disrespectful to those two competitors, but had the two members not say they were competing only to go MIA, then two different members could’ve gotten a bye this time. Instead, because of their irresponsibility, the two members who would’ve gotten a bye had they not said their in were forced into this round that could’ve completely not happened. So four different people are affected by this one way or another and this is really disrespectful to all four of them. 
Now sometimes IRL stuff does happen, and it could prevent you from submitting a team. I understand that things do come back, but if this happens in the future you need to be honest with the host that you are unable to submit something on time so that they can prepare for the next round ahead of time without last minute stress. 
Needless to say, neither of these individuals will appear on a bye list for the 2022 cup and will be forced to compete in round 1 if they decide to enter. In fact, I am pretty tempted to bar both of them from competing in the cup again, but since banning hasn’t happened in the past with non submitters I won’t do that. I just want to make it very clear that not communicating with the host may not only affect the stress of their work but it could also affect other competitors as well as this time shows.

It feels a bit like cheating to get into the second round this way, but at least I don't need to feel bad anymore for submitting my team before the latest news on Tom Moore.
Good luck for all the competitors!

I don't have the best Cup track record, but I'm surprised my would-be round 1 joker wasn t picked (though maybe the "byes" did).

 

Edit: Also, both my potential opponents have been going for very international teams - interesting!

Please tell me that Yorkshire hasn't picked his own Mum on a team :o

 

I've just checked the rules, and apparently there is nothing to stop anyone bumping off a relative to get a hit in this game! (providing they get a QO of course)

It would be bad form to do so just to win a first round match though. Now the final on the other hand .......

Oh I thought he’d asked someone for advice on how to pick his team and somebody had told him you need someone who is definitely going to die, you know, A Banker.

Just saved by the bell of February, ThereWillBeDeaths7 will start with the first hit of the month with the sad demise of Dustin Diamond. As such, he takes a 4 point lead against GuyFromFuture, who apparently could not see in the future that he would be on the losing side already.

I would have gotten a strong start if I was participating in this round. Now I'm a bit annoyed. <_<

Well, take it to see your potential going forward in the next round. You are going up against one of the dead pooling GOATs next time, so a strong performance in round one might hint of a strong match next month.

In perhaps one of the biggest irony to dates, Captain Tom Moore, who came to fame for fundraising Covid-19, died of the very same thing that he came to fame for. He had a very eventful last year of life, but even those very eventful moments have to end at some point. His covid diagnosis at the end of the month lead to nantonian2013 to cash in on joker points and Djemba Djemba also scoring as well.

There's a name I cannot believe hasn't been mentioned anywhere on DL and/or wasn't chosen for the Feb Cup.  It was mentioned in early January with a modicum of searching.  Yeah, wait til March 1 all I can say.  I will say she/he is moreso a relative of a famous person, but has limited stand alone ability to claim fame on their own.  Quite limited. But it's the Cup, nearly anything goes.  This person doesn't even APPROACH the lower limits, I promise you.

Spinks has been KO'D, and as such a few cup competitors were able to score with him. Among them, BabyBlue get their joker points for Spinks, and as such take the lead against CalebH, who did also have Spinks. Meanwhile, ThereWillBeDeaths7 extends his lead even further. I'm beginning to think he's actually up against GuyFromSixMonthsAgo.

Dai Davies has Daid at 72, and given he was in hospice with pancreatic cancer it’s no surprise that he was a bit of a popular pick here. Yorkshire Banker cashed in on what turned out to be a banker of a joker and takes a 6 point lead against Old Crem. Meanwhile, GreatUncleBulgaria gets there first points and takes the lead against Gooseberry Crumble. This now leaves markb4 vs Charles de Gaulle as the only non scoring matchup today. Elsewhere, BuffaloPhil claws back a bit of their differentials against nantonian2013, and Djemba extends his lead against Joemoneypenny even more

You didn’t even enter in this cup round despite many messages sent. You can shut the fuck up with any criticism you have on the cup since you couldn’t even be bothered with sending in a team.
