Thanks for taking part folks. Final few hours left to 2200 Game Time tonight when I'll close the participation time as the games would've begun:)

The participation time has been closed now. Thank you to the 13 people that have put their guesses in. Little stats about the guesses:

High Voltage has easily been the team to back thus far, with all but 1 manager backing them to get to the semi-finals. 10 of the 12 managers see them making it to the finals. 6 of these see High Voltage becoming the champions of the whole thing. Implying High Voltage's chances in the tourney ahead have 56 points on the line. High Voltage is also the only side with more than one manager's backing them to win the whole thing as every other side has just one manager betting on it.

Lincolnshire ccc were the second most backed side, with 8 folks backing them into the semis, 6 into the finals, and with Muff backing them to go all the way. Unfortunately for Muff and the other 7 people backing Lincolnshire ccc, word is that they've already been upset out of the competition, implying Muff has lost 7 of his 12 points on the very first day. Tough luck mate:(

The third most backed side into the semis was Stafford rangers reborn, with 5 managers seeing them into the top 4 but none seeing them go further than that. Their bracket coming into the semis is not an easy one as there are 4 sides around the same seeds in those 8, but will they be able to ride themselves into the cup holders seat giving nobody in the tipping comp the final 4 points?

Whilst three managers back defending champions Direwolves to get to the semis, only one sees them getting to the finals, and subsequently winning the whole darn thing and drag0on will hope that Direwolves can win the 4th title and their second in a row.

Two managers in jonooo and heppa have backed themselves in High Voltage and Illawara Dragons CC to go onto win the title, whilst bura has not backed their The Bengals, a strong opponent in the MKMC for the last few seasons to go onto reach the semis, probably owing to their breakneck bracket with Direwolves, Murder Inc and Illawara Dragons CC.

Teams like Quad and COVID19 Warriors have just one manager's backing but they are backing them to go all the way, will either of these two sides shine with this backing and go lucky for the next 5 rounds?

Will fan-favourite High Voltage hold the cup at the end of the Competition giving 6 different managers 7 points each or will somebody stop their train and will it be one of the other 7 teams that has been bet on?

Cheers:)

The next round of the MKMC will be tomorrow so I thought I'd post a list of the maximum points a manager can achieve after Round 7:

drag0on 12
heppa 12
quirkilyalive 11
KG0807 11
sanmath85 11
bura 8
Madcarrot 8
nawrocki 8
jonooo 8
PoweRr 7
Muff 5
LoneWolf 3
Veer 1

drag0on and heppa are the only two people that still have a shot at winning the entire 12 points now as losses to Lincolnshire ccc and Stafford rangers reborn have seen a lot of manager's guesses be heavily impacted. Manager Muff backed Lincolnshire ccc to grab the title but their loss in Round 7 itself means that Muff can only reach 5 points at best if all his other bets go right.

Hoping we have a few good games tomorrow:)

Given the quarters begin tomorrow, here is the maximum points every manager can earn now:

heppa 12
sanmath85 11
KG0807 10
bura 8
jonooo 8
PoweRr 7
Madcarrot 7
nawrocki 7
quirkilyalive 3
Muff 3
LoneWolf 3
drag0on 1
Veer 0

Heppa has a chance at the most points and will need his own troops with Illawara Dragons CC to get him the prize for the tipping comp as well.

I'm happy to drop your name from the list. Not much goes in keeping it as is, who knows the game magically favours you in the comp all of a sudden;)

We have reached the semifinals and fan-favourites High Voltage have been knocked out as a surprise in the Quarter Finals. Lesvosace CC were the 128th seeded side and they've upset quite a few teams to have reached the semi-finals as the heavy rated sides have seemed to fall short in comparison. Three strong outfits in Minor Mashervania, Illawara Dragons CC and Ceylonian Blasters finish the Top 4.

Here is how the participants have fared thus far.

heppa 2
bura 1
KG0807 1
sanmath85 1
jonooo 1
quirkilyalive 0
drag0on 0
PoweRr 0
Madcarrot 0
Veer 0
Muff 0
nawrocki 0
LoneWolf 0

Of the 13 managers, 8 have been knocked out of the the comp, as it is 5 people left, with 3 of the 5 sides having reached their maximum quota possible of 1 point.

This is the maximum points each remaining manager can get to now:

heppa 10
KG0807 3
bura 1
sanmath85 1
jonooo 1

Everybody but heppa has luck riding on just 1 side. heppa will need their own side Illawara Dragons CC to consistently perform to get them the title for this comp as well, a comp that they've sponsored too.

Also, I've realised Round of 32 might have been too early to have to pick sides. 1 of 8 aren't good odds for a tipping comp, especially with how random FTP can be at times. I think 1 of 4 by starting the tipping comp during Round of 16 might've been more ideal...

Final results have been decided after the previous round. Apologies it had been a busy NAT week so I didn't check yet. But here are the results:

heppa 4
KG0807 3
bura 1
sanmath85 1
jonooo 1

Only 5 people got off the board with points. heppa and KG0807 will be awarded as the first and second place for this comp. I am talking to the sponsors regarding the prizes and will post the details and mail the winners soon.

Yet again, I'm truly thankful to you lads for participating, this one did not go the way I'd have expected with just 5 people getting any points on the board and I'm going to try to think of a rather easier and cleaner way for this comp, so to say. Thank you and hope this was decent fun:)
