OSPL Round 4 is now closed. Nolan, your post came 3 hours after Collin sent me a private message claiming the last spot. If someone drops between now and Jan. 4, I'll let you know. Otherwise, Ian is first up on the Round 5 sign up list, to be posted soon.
Btw, this is a phenomenal field, and I'm looking forward to some great matches. I'll set the teams probably by around Dec. 27; Greg will look them over briefly to try and ensure parity as best we can, before I post them. Note that there will be two more iterations of OSPL after this, and then the Champions League in May. OSPL will then take a hiatus until early August. We'll do it again next year for sure.

Just a suggestion, for next year, would it be possible to run one iteration that is specifically designated for novice players? I've had a couple of freshman on my team who are interested in playing OSPL, but who have been scared off by the ridiculously strong field.

This is under discussion. I agree that some sort of differentiation is needed. The biggest issue being that each round of OSPL as is takes about 20 hours to coordinate/read for. so it's already 140 (w/champions league) free hours where we otherwise could be doing NHBB stuff we actually earn a living from. If others were interesting in volunteering as OSPL readers, this would become much more doable.

I'd be willing to read for a novice format. I think I could convince Conor Teevens to do the same.

That, btw, was ACF Regionals 2009 - packet by Brown Univ. Congratulations for surviving it - don't ever forget Gwawl! Next week, I'll tune it down a notch. Nice playing, though. Nikhil and Richard were the evening's top scorers. Ben's going to handle SQBS - I'll send him the sheets, and he'll get them up by this time next week. Til then.

Out of curiosity, how do you handle using such recent packets? 2009 ACF Regionals is a relatively recent high-profile tournament which I would expect a number of high school teams to have read. I'm not saying this to incite OMG CHEATING! accusations, but rather to ask how you handle such situations.

Yeah; this packet in particular may be problematic because a video of it can be found here. I am certain I saw this video some time ages ago (long enough that the memory of the exact questions in it escaped my head). I thought I was getting a little too lucky on this packet, and in retrospect it likely is because many of the clues from it had been drifting around in my head before. I sincerely apologize for not catching this error and will play a rematch/forfeit my score for this game if it is necessary.

Everybody: this is the Online Skype Practice League. With 24 really good players, it's almost impossible to find a good packet that nobody's read through. Unless you read a packet like, within the past month, don't worry about it if you have a vague recollection of it. If people want to pay for OSPL, then I could commission a set, but I don't think that's where we're going anytime soon. Max, I skipped the math because I overlooked it in the first game, and then stayed with that for the final 2 for consistency's sake.
Going forward with OSPL, we're probably going to run 8 rounds of OSPL next year - 4 Varsity and 4 JV. Then the Champions League for each would have 4 teams. That would account for differentiation. Varsity and JV will be based on experience/ability, not year in school. I'll have the final say on who can play where, but again, that's for 2012-13, so that's a ways off.

OSPL Rd 4 is running on Thursday this week, since Greg, Nick, and I are all occupied tomorrow evening.

Sorry we're missing last weeks stats - I'll get them to Ben and post scores from last week on Sunday once I'm back in NJ. It's been a busy week.

Would moving next week's OSPL to Thursday be ok with people? Because Conor and I have conference on that Wednesday and probably wouldn't be able to make our matches.

Thursday won't be a good evening for me to play OSPL, as I have a math team meet that day.

I'll be pinch-hitting for Nolan and the Fights this Wednesday night. Hopefully it won't affect the finals situation.

Stats finally now complete. Note the earlier start times tomorrow. Teams 2-2 or better should plan on potentially playing in the final, since you still all have a shot at making it. There will be only one 4-1 team, since both 3-1 teams (Throats & Igloos) play each other.

Collin Parks has informed me that he has found a teammate from his school to sub for me. Thanks Collin!

Hm, they don't include week 3's matches, since I haven't gotten scoresheets yet.
