*UPDATED* BECW Grand Prix Final Recap & CHRISTMAS TREE TABLES

What's up, bitches?!

So, last night was certainly fun. I think I thought so anyway, and there are a handful of caps lock'd comments in the live post bearing my name that suggest that I did indeed enjoy the fights. I wish I could remember one or two of the main card fights but I guess the bright side is that I get to watch Lauzon vs. Varner again.

I won't bore you with excuses for the tardiness of this recap (you probably figured it out yourself) but as you may have noticed, it's becoming a bit of a trend. So, for my own good and for your continued enjoyment of the BECW (mostly the former), I am stepping down from recapping duties. That's right, one or more of you fuckfaces will get to make words about numbers from now on. Sounds riveting, don't it? It's actually a great gig. The recaps are as certain to make the Recommended Fanposts list as an SSReporters satire post (remember that guy? Where's he gone?) and you can do whatever with them.

Before you all go crashing the internet with your "pick me! pick me! pick me!" posts (lol), here is what you need to be able to do: 1. Work OpenOffice relatively well, 2. ?, 3. Profit. I'll still be handling the scorekeeping but once an event is over, you have to be able to get the results off PG and/or the Live Spreadsheet and into a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet will do most of the work from then on but you might have to sort one or two tables. That's it.

All numbers and stats are after the jump. First, here are some things I think I remember from last night:

  • After around 110 or so fights on 10 cards and about 14,000 (!) fight picks, the inaugural BECW Grand Prix was decided in the third round of a FOTY candidate where most people had each fighter winning a round. Take a moment to think about how awesome that right there is. Had Varner gone on to win a decision not only would Wario be champs, Zater would be the top individual scorer for the event. I'm sad Varner didn't pull out the win for Wario but that is clearly the darkest timeline.
  • Not only was the final matchup a fun ending to the season, I thought the whole season was a roaring success. It's easy for me to say so since my team of studs picked their hearts out throughout the season but I'd like to think that we all had a ton of fun. The division and playoff structure worked beautifully and everyone generally seemed to be into it.
  • There have been some grumblings about winning teams getting to keep the team together (as there were after the first two seasons). It's too late to do anything now but it's something we could think about for next season. Perhaps all teams get to keep up to five players if they wish? It would make the draft and captaining a little less work and it would maybe potentially build some rivalries down the road but there's plenty of pitfalls too. Sound out, plz.
  • I'm just gonna toot my own horn for a splitsecond here: how awesome is the live spreadsheet? It can get a whole lot better, too (eg. calculating most favourable outcome in each fight for each team), but again, that's something I wouldn't mind some assistance on. People have been willing to step in to help updating the spreadsheet but it would be awesome if someone wanted to get involved in the scraping and organising of the data.
  • I'm having a hard time figuring out who "won" the race to be the worst team. The Ragequitters lost before the Bland Prix even started, As Real As It Gets actually turned it up a little and picked up two wins in three efforts in the Bland Prix albeit against some very low - and partially inexistent - competition and Jon Jones' PR Agency had one or two decent performances in the regular season.
  • Speaking of the Bland Prix, what's up with all those missed picks? I know you don't care about the season but at least have a little respect for your teammates.
  • Lots of respect to Patak's Chili Pickles who posted two top three scores in the Bland Prix. Outside of the PR Agency's 8th-ranked performance last night, these were the only two occasions a Bland Prix team's score didn't rank among the four worst.
  • Oh yeah, and I should probably mention the Beta Males. Their playoff run? 2nd highest, highest and highest team scores. Overall: 7 top 2 scores in 10 events. One individual overall score below average. Five individual scores in the top 10 overall. Frankly ridiculous. My dickfelt congratulations to PFP and his horde of unwashed cretins.
  • Also, congrats to swiftman who has been consistently incredible this season. Nobody came close to touching his 1st place spot. Fight picking AH LAH crazybones in season 1, as Goldie might put it. 10 out of 10 events were above average and swiftman is living proof that kreally has made a good decision at one point in his life.

12th Place & Subo Bowl Bland Prix Champions: krcampbell's Rampage's School of Cuckoldry

B96n7_medium

A once so promising season went down the drain for kr & co. as a couple of unfortunate defeats saw them miss out on the Grand Prix, leading to a Rampage-esque, energy-drink fueled ragequitting. Every player underformed except Fedorable who turned in a very solid season and Magaca who claimed the no. 2 overall spot and will be a much-sought after draft pick in a few days' time.

11th Place: IRodC's Jon Jones' PR Agency

0vpxw_medium

Damon O. joins Derek Suboticki and Ulf Murphy on the list of turrible early round picks as his consistenly sub-standard and eventually non-existent picks saw him finish dead last. Nonetheless, decent seasons were had by hardy's in your face, 19miles and MaZZacare but it wasn't enough to lift IRodC's sorry bunch into the Grand Prix.

10th Place: Tim Burke's As Real As It Gets

Cfgg2_medium

The fact that ARAIG finished 10th is a huge testament to the fecality (fecetiousness?) of the Bland Prix as only five players on the team cracked the top 100 and every player except the two last rounders were underachievers. Capt. Burke turned in a great season but it clearly didn't rub off on any of his teammates as they were among the four worst teams every week except for week two.

9th Place and Bland Prix Winners: T.C. Engel's Patak's Chili Pickles

Gsvjm_medium

Possibly the most inconsistent team of the season, the Pickles of Gloom turned in four really good performances and three utterly shitty ones en route to crushing everyone in the Bland Prix. Patrick Wyman and sun yue carried the team along with the exceptionally consistent Tim Bernier but it wasn't enough in the end as Mookie Alexander, memitim and Rutager's picks were satirical, trolling and drunk, respectively.

8th Place AKA Worst Grand Prix Team: Violent Newt's Night of the Living Death

E1izp_medium

Look at the first five events, then look at the last five. Total and utter collapse for the previously so brash and confident Living Death who folded under pressure as they not only lost the divisional title to Wario but also lost all three of their Grand Prix matchups. Violent Newt is sure to inspire fear in absolutely no one except those unfortunate enough to end up on his team as his 100th-ranked score and poor leadership will be huge question marks leading into season 4. Props to brutalbobbyt and thuggis for turning in great seasons.

7th Place AKA 2nd Best Scandinavian Team: Horselover Fat's Randy Couture's Dirty Boxers

Cmptx_medium

A remarkably average season for Fats & co. as they never managed to turn in a top 3 performance and as a result finished 7th overall. Note that mountaineers101 was replaced mid-season by Brad Ackerson/grits207 who turned in some solid scores (not pictured here, unfortunately). cmons had a great season as he led the team with 602 points. Horselover's track record as a captain is possibly the worst among the season 4 captains as Spinning Fish only managed a 4th place finish out of 5 teams in the first season.

6th Place: gspmademegay's We Toquinho

Fcgvd_medium

Another team showing promise early but fading late, We Toquinho battled adversity and banhammers all season but ultimately had to settle for a middle-of-the-road finish as their playoff performances let them down. DreamingOfFighting, DirtyML and HurricaneHeron all had remarkable seasons but gspmademegay's early round draft picks failed miserably as JDH, luda and SeaBass all finished in the bottom half.

5th Place AKA Consolation Bracket Winners: kreally's Team Precise Precision

6ntjy_medium

The once so loud kreally cut a forlorn figure most of the season as his TPP were generally outmatched in the top-heavy Kimura Division. A consistent season saw them barely make the Grand Prix which led to an epic beatdown by the eventual champions and the two outstanding performances to close out the season were too little, too late as kreally et al. had to settle for 5th. swiftman was the brightest star on the team by some distance but StevenGiles also turned in a very good season indeed.

4th Place AKA Better than 80%: benten20's The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Cecil Peoples

6cre6_medium

How TIPDOCP even made the playoffs in the first place is anyone's guess although the two strong performances at the end of the regular season surely played a big part. Looking at all the below-average scores, however, it's clear that Ben has a lot of work to do if he wants to be competitive come next season. Maybe not picking a rookie in the first round would be a good start. When Farthammer's the best player on your team, you know something is wrong.

3rd Place: Our Bovine Public's Off Constantly

Phlfa_medium

Pegged as a potential Bland Prix favourite after the first four events, OBP & co. managed a remarkable turnaround as they emerged as a solid team and eventually finished up in third place, losing to the Beta Males in the semi-finals. Only king of the dogs and -Neil- really disappointed as the rest of the team had solid seasons, led by Dave Strummer's top 15 finish.

2nd Place and Grand Prix Runner-Ups: wonderfulspam's Wario Yamasaki's Stand-Up Guys

Eykl6_medium

A consistently good season for my team with no really bad performances and a handful of outstanding ones. Luke Nelson had an off-season but pulled through towards the end while triangled was absolutely incredible all season and Zater - to many people's surprise - put in some solid work to make the top 10. Dangalvan was also terrific and the entire team played a big part in my respectable 600 points as the pick discussions were a joy to behold. It wasn't enough to win it all in the end but 2nd place is nothing to scoff at.

Grand Prix Champions: Paulo Filho's Psychiatrist's Beta Males

Ooivt_medium

Simply sensational. I think the numbers speak for themselves here.
