Not sure why I would announce next year's 4th place team.

Pretty sure I clearly said winning team. ;)

You should name your team The Toronto Maple Leafs.

Sad to see you go, former Jaghuts. You can always sabotage your new teams #jaghutforever

Let's have a look at the 2018 results:

Jenna -- 425.3 (co-Leader)
Angela -- 247.8 (co-Leader)
Arkadeb -- 1650.3 (Alum)
Bill -- 1057.6 (HoC)
Brian -- 499.4 (Alum)
Diana -- 1111.6 (Raider)
Elinor -- XXX (Free Agent)
Elizabeth -- 266.4 (Raider)
Iniya -- 311.5 (Alum)
Jess -- 378.4 (Eagle)
Manju -- 1011.5 (HoC)
Slytherpuff -- 163.1 (Alum)
Soo -- XXX (Free Agent)
Tammie -- 326.2 (Eagle)

4 Jaghut Guardians Alumni
2 Blood Eagles
2 Tome Raiders
2 House of Chains
2 Wildcards

Total 2018 points of new team: 7449.1

Total points 2018 overall: 35,391.2
25% of 2018 points: 8,847.8

Editorial Comments: A trend seems to be emerging, where teams prefer Alums over new blood...

Again, at first glance, the 2018 points look bad, but as I'm going to keep repeating here, the rules changes are significant in 2019 (33% BR, 10% challenge, and 1.25x pages for non-audio)... pair that with 2 late-starters in 2018, and 2 complete wildcards, and this team could go far...

NOTE: I'm having fun writing these :D

House of Chains: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Tome Raiders: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Blood Eagles: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

EDIT: Forgot the team leaders... even more important with this team... makes my commentary even more accurate, with them added :)

Haha, nice try. But I will sure stop by here from time to time, when I get a little Jaghut-homesick. Especially after I will finally read Malazan next year and find out what Yaghuts are :D

Good luck next year (view spoiler)

Welcome to the team Jess! ^_^ we're so happy with our team!

Slytherpuff | 328 comments I will probably actually have more time to read once I graduate from high school before college.


message 25: by Tammie (new)

Tammie | 4107 comments I forgot this was happening today. I'm looking forward to being on this team, although I may keep looking for my name under Blood Eagles on the scorecard for a while. Old habits are hard to break haha.

I was editting them in... I miss about 20 minutes of time, compiling the stats and commentating :)

I finished yours, went and checked the response to Scott's, saw my mistake, fixed both, and moved on to Niki's/mine... now I'm checking again... then on to Blood Eagles, if they have a thread, yet...

I was thinking that... if you read similar to this year, you're gonna add 1500 points or so... you read as much as I do, but 50/50 audio/reading... and you don't Buddy Read as much, for flexibility...

I clearly didn't appreciate the people that didn't sign up for year 2, in my comments... because if everybody DID sign up, Margret got a very strong lineup... last one left to write up, and everybody has been under their 2018 total, so far...


message 33: by Slytherpuff (new)

Slytherpuff | 328 comments I've never used audio before and have only read one ebook. I'm happy about that change because it will be easier for me to get more points.

Hey Frank! I just ran through the Year 2 Signups again and unless I am blind, you didn't sign up for this year...?

Double check here in case I really am blind -

Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1099 comments Hi everyone!


message 46: by Timelord Iain (new)

Timelord Iain | 16602 comments I think we're down about 20 people from last year, and picked up about 10 new people... last year there were 65 people... this year there are 51 at the moment...

Looking at the old spreadsheet, I think we lost anyone who earned less that 100 points (not because we don't accept low numbers, but because those people don't check into Goodreads much, or disappear / never showed up in the first place)... and the rest bowed out of year 2, to focus on other things...

Hey Frank, we're going to wait a bit and see if anyone else forgot to sign up/wants to sign up at the last minute so while you might not be assigned a team for a while, we didn't forget about you!
