This power ranking is based only on public information and does not take into account preloads, or any personal biases. There are no fudge factors, even when I know a team is doing better than the data shows. The data I have are imperfect and I do this by hand, so transcription errors can and likely have occurred which could alter the standings, perhaps significantly. A power ranking is not a value judgement. I love you all equally. This is not investment advice and is for entertainment purposes only.
It's all well and good to make predictions--not that I am, exactly. But without accountability, it's just no fun. How do my power rankings from last week look in the light of a new period? Remember when I put out a tentative Individual Power Ranking and the guy I had in first place got eliminated the next week? Yeah... let's not have that happen again.Team Eliminations from last week's PR
One DQ from near the top also made the competition a bit less intense this week. Two more eliminated from near the bottom of the rankings. Team TheAaronLad continues to survive while being at the bottom. Much like was predicted by JimbotUK
a few weeks back.
Bonus accountability (heh), of the 7 teams who won the very top-heavy bonus this week, three were outside of my top-7, and only two were outside of the top-10. Congratulations to Way Too Old For This
and The Cake is a Lie 3.0
for stepping it up and going beyond for this bonus.Individual Eliminations from last week's PRAhayzo
goes out as the top-scoring eliminated and the highest on the board, taking his 16 bonuses with him, unused to the graveyard of GTASC. smittykid
and for the most part the rest of the list is within tolerances.
A feature requested was to try to note the biggest movers, up and down each week. Because so much is baked in each week, there often aren't a lot of big movers. This week exemplifies that. No major shakeups. The biggest mover was Stop, Unlock & Pop It
picking up a few spots, while LillyTruscott
and Kung Pao Chicken
each lost a little. Even a DQ didn't shake things up much, as mostly is just meant most teams moved up one spot--since the DQ'd team was near the top of the leaderboard. Ideally this means my algorithm is robust and handling adversity well. Practically we see that even though my projections are not bad, they're still fairly random. This is better than pulling a name from a hat, but not enough to go to Vegas with.Individual
Our biggest movers were LORDOFDOOKIE69
on the downswing and darkwing1232
on the uptrend.
The past two week's worth of data had some extra errors that made it through my proofing and were caught by readers. I've corrected those and reposted from the original data as appropriate. As I note in the disclaimer, this is done by hand, so the errors aren't unexpected, but they are frustrating. Thank you for helping me to keep the data clean.
