Week 1 is over! Infallible Team Generator v1.0 is currently in the lead, but only by 78 points! For those of you wondering how the bonus points factor in, well...

The bonus system for this tournament has been scrapped.

After evaluating the standings and consulting with all the captains, I have decided that the bonus system I devised could cause a team to be essentially knocked out of the tournament after the first week. In the interest of fair play, and the Wolf tournament goal of including as many people as possible, I can't let that happen. The tournament therefore will only be scored using the top 6 scores from each team. Thank you to all the players who busted their asses this week to help their teams...please keep those great scores coming!

Cool. Thanks for the update and all the work going on behind the scenes. Glad we're still trying things out and doing our best to make it fun and fair for as many people as possible.

Also agree it was the right decision, and the mere threat of it did prompt a CRAP-TON of playing and high scores the first week, so I'd say mission was accomplished.  I was feeling utterly despondent about ever catching up, but now it's still within reach, and I'm trying.

Don't forget the Wolf tournament goal of changing the rules mid-tourney as often as possible Kappa

(Good call, sir)

Week 2 is in the book! ITG remains in the lead. They have about the same score has last week (just few points shy of 1700), but the intense competition and the rise of Spaceballs means the ITG lead has actually increased to almost 200 points! Can anyone challenge the Infallible Team Generator v1.0, or is this now just a battle for 2nd place? Wait and see! :-)

Week 3 is finished! Again, ITG is on top by nearly 200 points. SB and BEEF are trading blows, trading off between 2nd and 3rd place by the hour. Will one of them break through and make a run at ITG? Verizontal is close on their heels...do they stand a chance?!

I was thinking about the time when games should be played again.  Here's my idea.  Since it's called the Yolympics, maybe do what the Olympics does and have a certain video game available once every four years?  That way it's sort of like an Olympic event when that certain video game shows up again.

Week 4 is complete! We are now in the final stretch of Yolympics 2017. The cutoff for submissions is Sunday, March 5, 2017, 11:59 PM EST. This is a hard cutoff. All submissions must be received by this time.

ITG still holds on to their 200 point lead, while BEEF and Spaceballs battle for 2nd. VZ is not far behind. Will anyone be able to make a push for 1st or will ITG coast to the win?

OK, last day of the tournament.  Here are things to look for.  Will BBH be able to overtake the pro for first place overall in the tourney?  It's a tall order, but I wouldn't count him out.  Who will be second or third?  Team Beef has a 29 point lead, but ExedExes has been eerily quite this tourney.  Does he make a huge run at the last day?  We'll find out.

Yolympics 2017 is over! Congratulations to the winning team, with 1,695 points: Infallible Team Generator v1.0! While Verizontal Mk. II made a valiant run, Team Beef managed to secure 2nd place in the final hours of the tournament with 1,489 points. Verizontal finished with 1,485 points and Spaceballs finished with 1,331.

Congratulations are also in order for the top player of the tournament. With 423 points and averaging a top 4 score in every game: The_Pro!

This tournament saw 74 people register, 62 people people submit scores, and 59 people score points for their teams. For those that are curious, if the bonus system had remained in place the final rankings would have been the same, but with a larger point spread between each team.

Thanks to everyone for the great scores and great competition and I hope to see you all next time!
