  • The Perj League: Mock Trial Fantasy 2015-- Jesse Get Your Gun (ORCS)

    It is with deepest regret that I write to inform you that your Prodigal Drunk Uncle has passed away. His last words were "I’m off to a better place, a world that accepts me for who I want and what I am. I’m off to find the Big Rock Candy Mountains because, as I hear, they’ve got little streams of alcohol that come trickling down the rocks. Also, prostitutes." Words that I'm sure will be a great comfort to you as you mourn his loss.

    After reviewing the drunken tirade that was his will (consisting primarily of a rambling prediction of how Midlands State would sweep the "Champion Double Platinum Spark Plug" Division of NCT in 2018 only to lose it all to Calkins College in the final round) it was discovered that he left you $577.00 to invest into what your uncle described as "The best investment opportunity of our day, Fantasy Mock Trial." Unfortunately, your uncle was never good at investing, math, or predicting the outcome of the NCT. While there is a prize this year, it's .001 Bitcoins for each fantasy level (ORCS and NCT), worth substantially less than the $577.00 your uncle left you. Nevertheless, not wanting to disappoint your admittedly obtuse uncle, here are the rules for your investment:

    Da Ru'Rules
    Go to this spreadsheet and select exactly 8 teams. Nine shalt thou not count, neither count thou seven, excepting that thou then proceed to eight. Ten is right out.
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?pli=1#gid=0
    In selecting your teams, you must observe the following constraints:
    1. Spend no more than $577.00.
    2. Max of 2 teams from the same ORCS.
    3. If you select an A team, you must select a B team. In other words, unless you select all teams that have only 1 bid or all B teams, you must select at least 1 B team.
    4. Only 1 team per school. You can't have Midlands State A and Midlands State B.

    Once you have selected your teams, submit your selection to this form. I also encourage you to post them on Perjuries so others can see your selection, but if you wish have your selection remain secret you may do so. However, you must submit your team selection to the Google form. Selections posted only on Perjuries and not to the form are not eligible for the fantastic prize. Submissions are due by noon on Friday, March 6th, Central Time.
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1OO7...requested=true

    But, Captain Bow Tie, how does my team score points? Well, that's an excellent question. I've actually brought along a demonstrative to help me explain:

    Scoring
    Wins and CS
    1. W=Number of ballots won
    2. T=Number of ballots tied
    3. Points earned=(W+.5*T)*(.75+.5*((CS-8)/16))


    Placing
    1. 2 points for earning a bid to the NCT
    2. 1 point for an honorable mention


    In the event of a tie, the team that was submitted earlier wins.

    Finally, this is the first part of a two part process. There's a prize for winning the ORCS league, but there will also be a prize for the NCT league. As a result, teams you selected for ORCS that qualify to the NCT must also be on your NCT team. I'm still thinking about the exact details of how pricing and team selection will work with this carry-over, but for now know that you should pick teams that you anticipate will do well at both ORCS and the NCT. If you have any questions, post them below or PM me and I'll do my best to answer them.

    EDIT Monday March 2: There should have been a .5 next to the T in the point calculation formula, which was not present in the original post. If this affects your team selections, feel free to make a new submission
