And that my friends is the end of Round 8, and likewise the second season of the Metaverse League.
@KP/Mumble: Yes, that is a correct distinction. However, and it is my fault for not announcing this to the MVL, but Kzinti had notified me about possible need for a back up about three weeks ago. We gave it until the 20th at which point I selected randomly from the known active players on his team, and still ended up with Kzinti, the go ahead to proceed with a backup game per that the other teammates failed to submit. This is per the following rule
In the Single Victory round if a player neglects to submit a game then there is no issue as long as the team still has at least four other players that submitted a game. However, if the team only had four players to begin with then they would be missing one potential contribution to the team’s base score. If this non-submission is pre-announced (this is highly encouraged), then either the Commissioner or Vice Commissioner may randomly select another member of the team to submit another game to count towards the teams base score.
Since KP was able to fulfill the missing victory requirement, the corollary rule:
Finally these same rules apply in the case of an All Victories round but with an extra qualification. This extra requirement is that in an All Victories round each team is required to submit at least one game of each victory type. In this case the team may be required to use an “extra” game as described by the rules above that duplicates the victory type of an already submitted game. In this case for base scoring purposes that game would have to be considered a 1 point victory of the wrong type. Note that such a game could still receive individual and team bonus points based on the correct victory category.
does not apply in this case.
