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

    With the division draw complete and the NCT on the horizon, it's time for the 2015 NCT Perj League. This post contains both the results of the ORCS round and rules/instructions for the NCT round.

    ORCS Round Results
    There were nineteen individuals that submitted fantasy teams at the ORCS level. Unfortunately, four of those individuals didn't follow the rules and selected three teams from the same ORCS. Of the fifteen remaining submissions there was a very close competition for second through third place, with two teams having around forty-eight points. However, there was one clear winner, Haley Floyd's Hydrophobic Divers with 53.45 points. To collect your prize, send me the public address of your Bitcoin wallet. Second and third place were Indifference to Pain (48.08 points) and Snow Day Boredom (48.03 points), respectively.

    I tried running a program to determine the best possible team, but after a week it was still less than 1% done. As far as I can tell, though, is the best possible selection for ORCS was:
    Team School Name Cost W L T CS Points
    1061 Vanderbilt B $77.29 8 0 0 13 9.25
    1515 Southern California $70.01 8 0 0 12.5 9.13
    1022 Macalester $62.14 6 2 0 16.5 8.09
    1639 Emory $70.38 6 1 1 18 8.91
    1243 Furman $73.10 6 1 1 15.5 8.40
    1114 Pennsylvania B $70.57 7 1 0 15.5 8.89
    1222 Cornell A $83.60 7 0 1 19.5 10.32
    1172 New Mexico $69.10 6 0 2 13.5 8.45
    Totals $576.19 71.44
    Nationals Round
    For those of you new to Fantasy Mock Trial, it has two stages: team selection and point tabulation. Team selection takes place before the NCT, and then based on those team's performance at the NCT, those teams earn points. The winner will receive 0.001 Bitcoin.

    Team Selection
    Congratulations! As a thank you for your vote for Max Heisman, you've just received $522.00. Truly this a bright day in Truman's history. Wanting to make an investment in the city's future, you promptly head to the Black Bear to wager your newfound riches on intercollegiate mock trial. When you arrive, you see a sign with the following rules:
    1. You must pick six teams. Seven shalt thou not count, neither count thou five, excepting that thou then proceed to six. Eight is right out.
    2. Spend no more than $522.00.
    3. You must pick three teams from each division.
    4. You cannot have an A Team and B Team from the same school.
    5. Submissions are due by noon Central Time, on April 17th.

    Special Rules for People that Competed In ORCS Round of the Perj League:
    While I don't have any way to enforce this requirement, if you participated in the ORCS round, I would encourage you to keep the teams from your ORCS team on your NCT team. As a reward for doing so, if you keep as many of your ORCS teams as you can (E.g. all your teams are in one division so you can only keep three, or you had seven teams qualify out by you can only keep six), they are half-price (E.g. Cornell A would cost only $62.54 if carried over from ORCS). As this can be a bit convoluted, here are some guidelines, and feel free to post or message me any questions:
    1. You must drop as few of your ORCS teams as possible.
    2. If you have more than three teams in one division, you may choose which team(s) to drop to get you down to three.
    3. If you have more than six teams that made it to the NCT, you may choose which teams to drop, so long as you drop as few as possible.

    Team prices may be found here <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1S4PZaj6cX2UtBntiTTPeC0esnRMYr-7XnXwf3FNHSOo/edit?usp=sharing>
    All Fantasy Teams must be submitted to this form to be eligible for the prize. Teams posted only on Perjuries and not submitted to the form are not eligible to win.<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1cWWVMZc5tZnkYTExdqq0lPb3Uz6xE6KS5z8n7lGKouw/viewform>

    Earning Points
    Four factors contribute to winning points: ballots won/tied, CS, placing, and SPAMTA.
    1. Ballots and CS: Points=(Ballots Won+.5*Ballots Tied)*(.75+.5*((CS-.5*AverageCS)/AverageCS))
    2. Placing:
      • 3 Points for 1st Place in Division
      • 2.5 Points for 2nd Place in Division
      • 2 Points for 3rd Place in Division

                      NCT Results
                      There were twelve teams submitted this year. Five of those teams took advantage of the ORCS carryover policy. Team success was more spread out than at the ORCS level, but this year's winner was my own Jade Falcons with 51.24 points. Second place was Scarlet Moon Alliance 2: Tokyo Drift with 47.38 points, and third place was Sydney Shoulda Changed the Channel with 42.71 points.

                      The best possible team with everything at half-price was (not surprisingly) the top three teams in each division. The best possible team at full-price was:
                      Team School Cost W L T CS Place SPAMTA Points
                      1132 Yale A $97.67 12 0 0 26.5 1st NA 15.63
                      1205 Tufts A $94.27 7 5 0 25.0 5th NA 8.15
                      1502 Notre Dame A $49.94 6 6 0 20.0 14th NA 5.50
                      1410 Harvard A $124.39 11 1 0 25.5 1st & Champ NA 16.34
                      1176 NYU A $86.08 9 3 0 29.0 4th NA 11.43
                      1583 Baylor A $63.93 8 4 0 30.0 5th NA 10.00
                      Total $516.28 67.05
                      Thanks to everyone for participating!
