House Cup 2017 MEGA Popularite Round 1 Wrap


Image

Team Spirited Away (320 Points)
In possibly the most dramatic achievement in the history of Popularite here at GTF, Team Spirited Away's '(almost) doghouse to the penthouse' performance this Round was truly remarkable. Any team that can take out the top three placings and practically half of the scoring positions in a round is always going to be hard to beat and that was no less true of Team Spirited Away's performance here. Congratulations to Round Champion Cui for a truly remarkable performance and to Jamie and Kamiel for rounding out Spirited Away's 'triumvirate of triumph'. Early on, it appeared Juraj and Kaspar would be jostling their team mates for a place on the victory dias but they (as did all of their team) still managed to contribute to an amazing result for their team :clap3:

Team How To Train Your Dragon: (240 Points)
Despite having the lowest participation rate of any team (albeit not by a large margin) for the second round consecutively, they were still able to claim a respectable score this round on the strength of solid contributions by Jacob, last round's joint champion, Liam, Henrique (ModernVampire) and Pity. Team HTTYD continues to defy conventional wisdom that insists that high participation equals high scores. I suppose you can do that though when your team continues to perform at the level this team is.

Team Lion King (72 Points)
Equalling their last-place finish last round, Team Lion King will surely despair at this result. Despite having the best participation of any team, they were trampled in the scramble for scoring positions on the ladder. They maintained a presence among the scoring positions courtesy of Miguel (MCarr812), Tyler (BucketTech), Jacob (Peekaboo) and LNB but they struggled a lot to make a real impression. Team Lion King have the ability to make inroads into the upper scoring echelons but time is rapidly running out...

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
