Saimoe Fantasy 2012: Phase III

The final stage is upon us

As mentioned before, Phase III of the fantasy game will be covering the Block Finals all the way to the Finals. The format for this phase will be similar to last year’s system – you’ll be picking the winner of each match, and predict the % of votes they will receive, to one decimal point. This vote % would range from 50.0%~100.0%, though you can browse previous years’ results for a more realistic range.

The scoring system will be as follows:

Correct winner – 5 points

You have to guess the correct winner to qualify for subsequent points –

Predicted vote % fall within 1% of actual vote % – 5 points
Predicted vote % falls within 0.1% of actual vote % – 10 points instead of 5 points

Thus, a max of 15 pts w/o bonus items.

Examples and rounding off rules here.

Bonus items:

Riichi – There will be no limit on the riichi sticks for this round. You will receive the bonus 10 points as long as your prediction is right and your predicted vote % falls within 1% of the actual vote (which means you’ll get either 20 or 25 points). -5 points if either is wrong.

Haitei Raoyue – The obligatory new move for this phase. This is somewhat similar to Toki Shift, but you will be allowed to modify the predicted vote % of your entry at no cost, up to when voting closes (11PM GMT+9). You can only use this move once.

\アッカリ~ン/ – \アッカリ~ン/ will now hide numbers instead of contestants, so you can leave your predicted vote % blank. You will be given two \アッカリ~ン/ for the whole of Phase III. Once declared, you can’t Toki Shift or use Haitei Raoyue.

Toki Shift – Same concept applies as per the previous round, -5 points for shifting. You can modify your entries up to 18 hours after kick-off. You will be give two Toki Shifts for the whole of Phase III. Cannot be used with \アッカリ~ン/. Haitei Raoyue can be used even after a Toki Shift.

No buying/selling of items is allowed for Phase III.

There will be bonus questions as usual – 5 points for each correct answer.

You can submit your entries for the Block Finals here.
Deadline for submission: 16 Oct 1 AM GMT+9
Current time in Japan

***

Submission for Phase III QF, SF, Final is now open. Deadline: 26 Oct 1 AM GMT+9

You can choose to declare riichi for the final bonus question – +5 points if successful, -5 points if not. Once deadline for submission is reached, you will not be allowed to modify your bonus qn answer.

As for the SF and Final, just type in tentative entries, and modify them at a later date if needed.

Good luck!

    10/14: Ako, Shana (no riichi)

    • Negligence October 13, 2012 / 2:15 pm

      Oh crap, posted in the wrong place.

  2. LuniazKun October 14, 2012 / 3:53 pm

    Martinawa:

    17/10 – \アッカリ~ン/ can only be used for vote %, not characters
    21/10 – Ryuuka is already out two rounds ago /heh

    • Martinawa October 15, 2012 / 4:12 pm

      Then:

      17/10: Akari Akaza.
      21/10: Kuro Matsumi (wut)

      No changes in vote %

  3. ppaaccoojrf October 14, 2012 / 11:18 pm

    Akkarin won’t be denied, I have to believe.

    By the way, when you say it’s going to be like last year, you don’t mean we’re locked to the characters we choose in this round for the rest of the tournament right?

    • LuniazKun October 15, 2012 / 7:13 am

      Nah, no locking of characters. Was just referring to the prediction of the vote %.

  4. Negligence October 15, 2012 / 7:34 am

    Umm… can I change my prediction for highest vote % in group finals to Matsumi Yuu? >_<

    • LuniazKun October 15, 2012 / 7:37 am

      Sure, done.

  5. Micchi October 16, 2012 / 4:44 am

    Let’s have some fun.

    Toki Shift. Saki, 66.6%. No riichi.

    それは「勘」です。

    • porsche October 16, 2012 / 8:33 am

      Following suit.
      Toki Shift. Saki, 67%. No riichi.

      • frustra October 16, 2012 / 9:46 am

        Shifting. Saki, 57.5%. No Riichi.

  6. LuniazKun October 16, 2012 / 7:05 am

    To be fair to those who have been reliant on the usual vote tracker…

    1st 157 votes Saki
    2nd 71 votes Koromo

    as of 4pm GMT+9.

    1st 165 votes Saki
    2nd 86 votes Koromo

    as of 6pm GMT+9.

  7. Kaosu October 16, 2012 / 1:54 pm

    Haitei

    Saki – 62%

    • Kaosu October 16, 2012 / 1:58 pm

      Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like you change who wins and your predicted vote percentage, but can’t declare riichi and in return there is no point penalty?

      Or can you not change who wins and only the vote percentage?

      If I can declare riichi, then I want one for this match.

      • LuniazKun October 16, 2012 / 2:03 pm

        If you use Haitei, you can only change the vote %. (You can’t change who wins and you cannot throw in or retract a riichi stick)

        So yeah, your previous request can’t be granted.

      • Kaosu October 16, 2012 / 2:07 pm

        Ah damn ok, saying it was like Toki Shift threw me off.

      • Kaosu October 16, 2012 / 2:08 pm

        Oh right so is there a point penalty for using it then?

      • LuniazKun October 16, 2012 / 2:10 pm

        No point penalty.

  8. frustra October 16, 2012 / 2:34 pm

  23. Kasuga Kyosuke October 25, 2012 / 3:50 pm

    Use \アッカリ~ン/ for today match, still with riichi. Onjouji Toki, off course.

  24. timbits October 25, 2012 / 10:05 pm

    Well it seems I missed the deadline. Using one toki shift to salvage today’s entry.

    Toki 56.4% riichi

  25. Kaosu October 26, 2012 / 6:16 am

    Since I don’t think I will be using it otherwise, Haitei Raoyue: 55.4%

  29. timbits October 28, 2012 / 4:27 am

    Welp. Toki shifting to Yuu 51.6% riichi. Also, replace all of my later entries where I have Kuro with Yuu.

    • timbits October 28, 2012 / 4:57 pm

      uh…ok never mind, back to Kuro for all entries afterwards.

  30. LuniazKun October 28, 2012 / 3:51 pm

    10/29: Up % to 51.5

  31. Team Rocket Elite October 28, 2012 / 6:50 pm

    Is my score for October 28 correct? My entry was Matsumi Kuro with 51.3% but I only got 5 points instead of 10.

    • LuniazKun October 29, 2012 / 2:31 pm

      Opps, fixed.
