:news::acclaim:Welcome to the
2019 March Madness Comic Grading Tournament
 :acclaim::news:

 

There are plenty of returning veteran teams so it should be a fun and competitive tournament. I'll have the seeding scans posted within 24 hours. If there are questions, maybe some of the veteran teams can answer them.

To allow more teams to play, this year will have two brackets (East and West) with 64 teams each. The winner of each bracket will compete against each other to determine the overall winner.

All books were pressed. 

This round is to establish a won-loss record for each team so the bracket pairings can be set. Future head to head single elimination rounds will involve grading only four books. The scans will be posted, and the scoring and rules are listed below. :eek:

Good luck to all.... :wishluck:

 

_________________________________________________________________________________

The rules for this round are as follows:

  • 1. Do not talk about the books in this thread or any other thread. Do not talk to your wife about these books. Do not talk to your co-workers about these books. Do not talk to your dog about these books.
  • 2. I will send all contestants a PM.  Use that PM throughout the Tournament.  PM me all grades in the order, which will usually be alphabetically,  they are listed.  Associate the book with the grade. No grade changes are allowed after submitting your grades. Submit all grades at the same time.
  • 3. Grades are due by 10pm (EST) Sunday, March 10th.
  • 4. You may PM me or ask questions in the thread. Answers will be posted in the thread so everyone has the same info.
  • 5. Each player’s won-loss record will be determined as follows:

Spot on= 3 wins
Within .5= 2 wins
Not within .5 = 1 loss
Not within 1= 2 losses

Bonus= The third spot on grade will be granted 1 bonus win, fourth= 2 bonus wins, fifth through tenth= 3 bonus wins.

 

Sckao's explanation:

If you are spot on, you will get THREE WINS
If you are within and including .5, you will get TWO WINS

If you are .6 to 1.0 OFF, you will get ONE LOSS
If you are over 1.0 OFF, you will get TWO LOSSES

People with THREE BULLS EYES get a PLUS ONE WIN
People with FOUR BULLS EYES get a PLUS THREE WINS

So at this point, we're waiting for the PMs, right? (Just want to make sure I haven't missed anything.)

Ok, first question, to which I think I know the answer.  If you post a double cover we are only grading the exterior cover which we can see and not trying to make a guess on the interior cover grade.  Correct?

That is correct.

I am only looking for the grade of the outer cover.  The inner cover and the pages will have nothing to do with the grade of the outside cover.

I will reiterate that in the initial PMs I send out.

Because you will see a lot of multiple cover books.

NOTE: THIS IS IMPORTANT...especially for the seeding round. Most rounds won't have that many books obviously... Good Luck! :wishluck:

Bonus= The third spot on grade will be granted 1 bonus win, fourth= 2 bonus wins, fifth through tenth= 3 bonus wins.

The BEST you can do is 51 - 0 with a WIN PERCENTAGE of 1.000

The WORST you can do is 0 - 20 with a WIN PERCENTAGE of 0.000
