The 2021 Deathlist Cup

Btw, he wasn’t picked in March or an official but Jorge Oñate has died
The reason I bring him up was that he was on Perhaps’ cup team, who unless I missed somebody looks to have 20 unofficial cup points for this round. So even though he didn’t compete, he would’ve squonked that twat anyways. Btw, Annami would’ve gotten 18 points this time I believe. So unofficially they got the two best cup scores for this round. Kudos to both of them...

 

The missing adventure Squonkings! :D

Team sent.

Hopefully I can keep up with An Fear Beag a little bit :D

With a little over 6 hours to go, I am still waiting for 11 teams to submit something. Most of them are usually last minute submitters but they are a few question marks this time.

OK - I'm in. A good 5 hours ahead of my usual submitting time!

 

Not at all confident on this one. Either my researching skill have declined dramatically, or there was an unusually low number of very ill people out there. Really struggled to cobble together a reasonable team for my first defence of the title. Given Book's obvious pedigree, this should be a good match.

Alright, as it seems like Lorimer has passed, here is the drill. Every one of you who jokered him need to send a backup joker to me before the deadline. If you don’t send a backup joker, then your top name will automatically get joker status. Want to make that very clear in case people complain tomorrow that they don’t have the joker choice they wanted.

So here’s what to do with Lorimer for any future cup submitters. For now, have him on your squad if you plan to choose to. Unless a news organization officially confirms his death I’ll treat him as alive. However, if you do joker him please name a backup joker in case it’s confirmed he’s actually dead. 
Additionally, I am considering to extend the time for those already submitted to an additional 12 hours for those who already sent something in to name a replacement joker. I’ll decide if that’s necessary later before the deadline. However, this extension is only for those already submitted. If you don’t submit something by the usual deadline there’s no getting in for you. 
Hopefully that’s fair enough for folk.

For the record, Lorimers on my team and I'm quite happy for him to remain there unless a proper source reports him dead (and its up in the air in Leeds forum land right now). If he is gone, don't worry, the rules are quite solid about subs and replacement jokers.

If you do pick Lorimer as a joker please send in a backup joker just in case though. And if he’s officially dead in the next few hours then I will add a 12 hour extension but as it stands round 2 will start at the normal time.

I just submitted my team. After my unofficial February team doing so well, it would be just my luck if no-one in my team died this time. Not feeling too confident since many potential team members kept dropping dead too early (and Lorimer possibly dying) and I have a strong opponent.
Good luck for everyone!

A certain former multi time DDP winner/farmer who will remain anonymous once got his Cup team in with 10 seconds to go before the deadline. :D

And everyone is now in.

Unfortunately we have somebody who confirmed to me that due to irl issues they wouldn't be able to send a team in. At times they can be quite a nuisance on the forum but regardless he is still a cherished cup competitor. 

So CalebH will be replacing Sir Creep for round 2 then, and the masterlist will be posted in about 20 minutes.

Grobler and I have a rarity in Cup play by looks of it - 22 seperate picks among the two teams. (He has more outright uniques however.) Good luck to all.

Btw, just for future rounds please check to make sure that all of your names are actually alive. I wouldn’t be saying this if this was a one off instance, but this happened multiple times this round. And not all of the dead names were obscure either!
