The 2021 Deathlist Cup

Recommended Posts

Always keep an eye on your own hits. You certainly don’t want to have no, no, no, no points despite picking someone for this cup round. 
Anyways, Peacock is a unique for the banker, which gets him to lead CalebH for now.

Still multiple ties without points, which is probably due to the continued survival of many popular cup picks, but that’s how it is sometimes:

 

  1. YorkshireBanker vs CalebH 4 - 0

  2. Grobler vs msc 0 - 0

  3. Djemba Djemba vs alt obits guy 0 - 0

  4. Theoldlady vs deadsox 0 - 0

  5. Perhaps vs ThereWillBeDeaths7 3 - 0

  6. Book vs An Fear Beag 0 - 3

  7. Markb4 vs maryportfuncity 0 - 0

  8. Quim Reaper vs Wormfarmer 0 - 0

  9. HDS vs Clorox Bleachman 3 - 0

  10. DeathByArsenic vs Joey Russ 0 - 0

  11. DevonDeathTrip vs Annami 4 - 0

  12. Gcreptile vs Baby Blue 7 - 0

  13. BuffaloPhil vs CaptainChorizo 0 - 0

  14. Banana vs GreatUncleBulgaria 10 - 0

  15. Spade_Cooley vs Grim Up North 6 - 0

  16. Bibliogryphon vs EtushIsPushingUpTheDaisies 0 - 0

I misread that at first.

Don't ask.

Eight games (including markb4 and me) still locked at 0-0 - not the month the massed hordes of eager fans were hoping for. Amazed that my talent, especially Lorimer, have held out so long, frankly. If they persist in such behavior I'm tempted to deny them a midway cuppa and give them a half-time hairdryer of a team talk on the pitch!

Yes, we have most of the sneaky unique hospice picks already behind us (except for my pick Albert Raboteau, :cough:), but all the commonly known names still alive.

Yes they are putting in too much effort and should be like a bunch of zombies out there

While we wait and see if any of the popular will actually score this time, DDT does manage to get another unique hit with the demise of Ken Wilkinson. He now leads his opponent Annami by 8 points, though this is far from a done deal in the cup.

Yep, it does seem like Palau has returned to his god. He’s a bit of a cult pick here, but he might end up being crucial to a few matches. alt obits guy and msc gets their first points in their tie, the latter of which becomes the first team to cash in their joker. Additionally, HDS extends his lead to Clorox to 6 points, which makes it possible that we see our two time semifinalist get knocked out here. Finally, Grim also gets his first points for his tie. Unfortunately for him, Spade also got his first points as well, making his death ultimately moot in the grand schemes of things. It does however mean that this is the first tie where both members has scored points.

He is a hit for msc, as well as DDT. Hopefully grobler and Annami hasn’t lost any good will for this round though, as they are now 9 and 11 points behind in their matches respectively.

My campaign to get a bye into the second round for next year seems to be going well at the moment.

Well look on the bright side. If things hold as they and someone doesn’t submit for round 3, you’re first up for the return of the lucky loser

That's from my original rules and is a clumsy way of saying "we don't have 16/32/64 players for a straight knockout, so there needs to be byes into Round 2"...

On paper I have already handed the win to Quim this round, but here we are entering the final third of the month and still we are locked into a 0-0 battle.  I would like to say that I had every expectation the Prince Philip and Peter Lorimer were going to survive the month, and it is next month that I will put them on my list and score the points.  But it was mere oversight that I missed those two (although I did have Prince P as an alternate).  I still give Quim a big edge, but at this point all I need is a hail mary on one of my solos, and I have a good chance at moving on to the next round.  Anything can happen . . . . .  that's why we play the games!

It’s not over yet though, by any stretch! I’m just happy we won’t be a fucking 0-0 coin toss.

Aye, Lorimer has gone from leading scorer for Leeds to leading scorer in my otherwise breathing DL Cup line up

Lorimer was an extremely popular pick unsurprisingly. Indeed, a whopping 20/32 folk in this round chose Lorimer as their joker. So instead of explaining every single matchup that scores, I’ll just go through the one where there’s actually a bit of a shakeup. 
We begin with Yorkshire vs CalebH, where originally it looked like the banker might scrape on through with a classy Trevor Peacock hit. However, Yorkshire didn’t have Lorimer on him, which allowed CalebH to take the lead in that match. Msc was one of the few that didn’t joker Lorimer, but since grobler didn’t pick him, msc actually expands his lead to 12 points. Then, it looked like with none of the popular picks going, markb4 might have been able to last another round. However, Lorimer dying really dampens his chances as maryport takes a 6 points lead. He’s not the only draw that significantly changed though, as Wormfarmer and myself are also now behind 6 points and are really hoping for a miracle to last another round now. Finally there’s the two matchups of Reptile vs BabyBlue and DDT vs Annami, where in both matches both of them score, but they didn’t both joker him. For the former, Reptile expands his lead even more to a 10 point lead. The latter has Annami claw back a bit of DDT’s 11 points lead, though that lead is still 8 points.

Because of Lorimer’s popularity, only two matches remain scoreless now, that being oldlady vs deadsox and Bibliogryphon vs Etush (although BuffaloPhil vs Chorizo are still in a draw as well)

 

  1. YorkshireBanker vs CalebH 4 - 7

  2. Grobler vs msc 0 - 12

  3. Djemba Djemba vs alt obits guy 6 - 9

  4. Theoldlady vs deadsox 0 - 0

  5. Perhaps vs ThereWillBeDeaths7 9 - 6

  6. Book vs An Fear Beag 6 - 9

  7. Markb4 vs maryportfuncity 0 - 6

  8. Quim Reaper vs Wormfarmer 6- 0

  9. HDS vs Clorox Bleachman 12 - 6

  10. DeathByArsenic vs Joey Russ 6 - 0

  11. DevonDeathTrip vs Annami 14 - 6

  12. Gcreptile vs Baby Blue 13 - 3

  13. BuffaloPhil vs CaptainChorizo 6 - 6

  14. Banana vs GreatUncleBulgaria 16 - 6

  15. Spade_Cooley vs Grim Up North 15 - 9

  16. Bibliogryphon vs EtushIsPushingUpTheDaisies 0 - 0

Hmmm

 

None of my business, obviously, other than I'm matched with you for the month of March, but the default in the Deathrace in the absence of a joker is that I assume the top name on the list is the double pointer. 

 

Who would that be?

Oh, I didn't see the default rule about that. It would be Tom Parker.
