    I will be running another round for Nationals. There will be a discount for keeping teams from your ORCS roster, so choose accordingly.

    I have assigned each school’s A Team the record that resulted in that team having the higher cost (even where it was actually a lower team that had the better record).

    In the next round, how to A vs. B holdovers from this round work? Like suppose that Midlands State B qualifies for nationals and Midlands State A doesn't. There will only be one Midlands State team at Nationals so they will get marked Midlands State A by AMTA, but it might actually be the people from Midlands State B. Will the people who bought Midlands State A in the ORCS round get the discount or the people who bought Midlands State B.

      You would get the discount if you bought Midlands State B.

                  The results are in! There was a tie for first place, both University of Perjuries and B Teams Are Key earned 54.5 points. While there’s no prize for first place, based on University of Perjuries having the cheaper team, I’m giving the unencumbered bragging rights to that team. B Teams Are Key gets encumbered bragging rights.

                  In third place was an unnamed team, submitted by Perjuries user adamsel.

                  In fourth place, earning a $5 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card (because the best theme for this year’s case will always be “Danger was waiting in the wings”), jeopardyjah’s team, These Are the Chimpions. Note that it’s a $5 eBonus card which expires on April 30. Private message me to arrange details.

                  Fifth through seventh places were (5) an unnamed team submitted by Spaghetti Monster, (6) Will Mock 4 Wings, and (7) IsTexasBackYet.com.

                  Finally, there was a three-way tie for eighth place. HappyGoLucky, Danny Did It, and Team A Closer Look all scored 49.5 points. Breaking the tie based on who had the least expensive team, HappyGoLucky takes eighth place and also wins a Buffalo Wild Wings gift card, which expires on April 30.

                  A list of all the teams submitted can be viewed here.

                  I also crunched the numbers (or rather had the server in my closet crunch the numbers), and the best possible team was:
                  1694 Northwestern B Cedar Rapids $16,972.59 8
                  1541* Wesleyan B Central Islip $21,223.96 10
                  1287 Boston University B Chestnut Hill $14,567.30 9.5
                  1570 Georgia Tech B Decatur $16,578.14 9
                  1040 Stanford B Geneva $15,846.74 8
                  1150 Rochester A Hamilton $16,197.48 8.5
                  1008 Texas A&M A Memphis $11,249.44 9
                  1524 North Carolina A Richmond $18,782.64 9
                  1493 UCLA B Santa Monica $17,598.89 9
                  Totals: $149,053.65 80
                  *My spreadsheet and submission form inadvertently listed 1540 Wesleyan A as being assigned to Central Islip. However, because it was actually Wesleyan B, correcting the error only would have resulted in the Wesleyan team that actually competed at Central Islip being even cheaper, so the listed teams would still be the best possible combination.

                  That’s all from me for now. Once the division draw takes place I will post a new thread for nationals. Thanks to everyone who played!

                    I don't know what's worse, being .5 away from winning or 1.5 away from the gift card. But yay 3rd place!

                      So this definitively proves I’m the most knowledgeable at mock in the country, right? Right?

                      EDIT: Not that this matters in the slightest, but I did notice that the full 2 points weren't awarded for teams that got an open bid when trying to figure out who I had picked
