New Era Prediction Game 2017-18: Game Over!! See You in a New Thread Next Season

Yay me! :p

Thanks again, Ron, for the incredible amount of effort you put into this for the entire season. I know there are a lot of us here who truly appreciate it and are already looking forward to next year.

Congratulations to New Era, Ron and Capt. Factorial. :)
The to worst predictors got finally the first two spots!! Congratulations VF21!
 
A @New Era it is!



Our final prediction night for 2017-18 saw a handsome
participation of 15 predictors, including 2 new entries!
Welcome, @kingsfan1984 and @Sac.1989!

You helped us reach a total of 28 season participants.
Come join again next season.
Maybe we get to hold a Playoffs Prediction game... :D

As @bubulina rightly commented (and as poetic justice), the Kings of the night
were among the least successful (and most Kings-loyal) throughout the season:

The winner tonight, with 70 points was our esteemed @VF21,
who tied her season best from game #70.
It was great to have you back after a long absence, @VF21!
I had a feeling that great fans (and great heroins) never give up...;)

2nd tonight was the relentless @bubulina, who stuck to the same
prediction (111-99 win) on 35 out of the last 37 predictions made,
and also tied a season best with 60 points,
making a 3rd appearance as runner-up (never winning the night)

Monthly

We have a new King of April!
And like everything else, this one was also decided on the finish line!
@CVKingsfan, who stringed a 3rd consecutive correct prediction,
took advantage of @Ron's mis-prediction to take the April race!

This was also the worst month ever for the fictional "Flat-Liner",
A constant 97-106 loss test prediction suggested by @R2D2.
The bugger came virtually last (except for the 2 new participants).:)

(Sadly, though, he managed to sorta-win-the season...:()

Season Leader-board

As already heralded, @New Era is the new KING OF THE SEASON!
And boy, was it tight!!! :)
He took this title (among others, see below) passing the scoreless @Ron
right on the finish line tonight, to score a GREAT 2,950. Congrats mate!
(Last season winner, @Telemachus, had only 2,397).

@Ron came 2nd for the 2nd time (runner up last year as well) with 2,940

@Capt. Factorial, who never missed out a prediction night, came 3rd
with 2,812, with @LoungeLizard close behind with 2,784

@BeerNerd916 (2,640) and @CVKingsfan (2,609) took 5th and 6th, respectively.

Last year's winner, @Telemachus, was also consistent, with full 82 predictions,
but this year it was only good for 7th place (Though he scored better: 2,583)

Thank you very much for running this show @Ron
Your dedication and hard work is worthy of accreditation. Perhaps the mods will find a way to recognise your commitment?

It was a fun reason to come and check the forum after every game.
Congratulations to all participants and winners!

As for the "flatliner" - he may return next year, who knows?...

It may have already been done. Not everything shows on the board. ;)
