All brackets are entered, we're off and running! Big thanks to Ange and his team of bracket-entering-dudes for getting us all up to date.

http://thengamer.com/guru/

- clicking your name on the ranks will display your personal bracket page complete with notifications for all your risky picks and mistakes. feel free to share that link around on the boards or even put it in your sig if you want to look reeeeeeeeally cool this season

- speaking of which, now is the time to check your bracket on the site and make sure it lines up with your official entry. sometimes we make mistakes entering it, sometimes you made a mistake posting it, neither is a problem as long as we take care of it early

- did you post your bracket but we missed you and it's still not on the site? hopefully that didn't happen but if so, sorry, let us know!

Despite 200 contestants this season we're already down to only 9 perfect brackets remaining!

1. PSI_NESS - 12
2. Menji - 12
3. haloiscoolisbak - 12
4. Stripey/INCEPTlON - 12
5. Eddv - 12
6. junglebob - 12
7. ffmasterjose - 12
8. Fenny - 12
9. cyko - 12

And by the end of today that number will be even lower- 7 picked Galaxy 2 while jose and Menji decided to go with the bold Mass Effect 1 upset. The overall numbers for today's matches came out to

Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 157 (79.70%)
Mass Effect - 40 (20.30%)

Halo 1 - 159 (80.71%)
Minecraft - 38 (19.29%)

Our hivemind "cookie cutter bracket" is also not perfect by the way, the one match we've messed up so far is

Persona 3 - 162 (82.23%)
Dragon Quest VIII - 35 (17.77%)

All in all there was plenty we disagreed with this season; the median bracket has 17 match results that don't fall in line with the Guru consensus, making this the most unpredictable 1v1 bracket in Guru history (topping even Game of the Decade). Our least risky bracket maker is pirate who picked only Pokemon > FF7 and San Andreas > Chrono Cross, while our King of Risks is Wizardsfan with this masterpiece:

http://thengamer.com/guru/bracket.php?id=197

The median tiebreaker this year came to 3.8 million votes which will I believe still come up well short of the actual total, but I'm sure Luster will arrive shortly to provide much more detail on that matter.

Good luck to everyone, hopefully we can start figuring out eliminations soon (once everyone confirms their bracket looks good)!

Over the first 12 matches of this contest, we are currently averaging 36296 votes. Maintaining this average for the rest of the contest would lead to a projected total of 4609592 votes during the entire contest. This does not adjust for increased vote totals in the later rounds, especially considering that we will have site alerts for the matches near the end of the contest. The site alerts won't have any significant impact on the overall combined vote totals for this entire contest, so we'll probably end up with maybe 4.7 million votes.

Guess I should go find out who the other lucky chap is. And beat him until he withdraws.

edit: found him. I'll assume whatisurnameplz constitutes my "closest bracket" then, if those quarterfinal matches are worth 16, however he doesn't have too many of the other risks I do, so maybe not.

didn't see my name on the list not that i'm upset (understandable due to how many entered) ..... i'm doing pretty good so far with 10 points, i was surprised with kingdom hearts 2 beating metal gear solid 4, and windwaker beating x/y >.< ......and so far i'm losing the minecraft/halo battle, the final fantasy 7/journey battle, but at least for the moment the super mario galaxy 2/mass effect battle is tied (have mass effect for the win) ..... this is my first time in a contest of this nature, so i hope i do well enough to win something :D .... best of luck to the rest of you as well :D

A bunch of people should be eliminated after CT vs FFX.
How do eliminations work? Never figured that out

But yeah tennisboy/mario brackets have a 5 point difference between 2 picks, Luster/yesmar's are the next and have an 8 point difference between 3 picks.

So if I'm looking at this right, Luster can only beat me now through a tiebreaker (Edit: Which he absolutely will), since two of those 3 matches have already happened in my favor.


Edit: So the first elim match is Half-Life 2/Dark Souls.

Portal 2 - 121 (61.42%)
Sonic 2 - 76 (38.58%)

And another that has at least a FEW picks for the underdog, in

Uncharted 2 - 185 (93.91%)
The Walking Dead - 12 (6.09%)

In what sense, foolmo?

The most simplistic way to do it is to say "let's suppose everything this person can possibly still get right is right. Would they still win?" As soon as that answer becomes no, the person is eliminated.

And the easiest way to derive that is to calculate the number of remaining points of differential between two brackets. If that amount exceeds the gap in current points, there ya go.

Actually computing the differences using spreadsheet logic, though? That can be a pita. I might make an effort at it tomorrow. We'll see.
What does risk mean?

What does risk mean?


It means you picked a winner that isn't what the largest group of people in the guru chose. That could mean you were the only one who took Hearthstone over OOT, or it could mean that you were among literally one less than half that took a really debated match.

Just for practice, I converted my java program from a couple years ago that calculated eliminations on 3-way brackets to calculate eliminations on 1v1 brackets. I can confirm all the stuff that Foolmo has posted so far is correct. If anyone is curious about the closest brackets to theirs, the most current output from my program is here, which includes the closest brackets for every entrant: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/andrew-howes/Guru2k15/master/neighbors.txt

No one has been eliminated so far, though if Tetris had somehow pulled the miracle today and upset Pokemon Red/Blue, MarioSuperstar would have eliminated Team Rocket Elite (RBY advancing is the only way left for TRE to make up points).

Pokemon R/B/Y is not looking that good today, so I think that's a good sign of progress.

Undertale's on track to win pretty comfortably at this stage. Basically the only way it doesn't win now is if Allen removes votes because some of these are actually stuffed or if something happens to change the status quo like a Mass Effect rally or something.

Gentleman, we've been dunked on.

Amazingly there's still one perfect bracket on the site while all Gurus have fallen 2 points off the pace. This cannot stand.

Nothing too heavily debated today, just

Goldeneye - 168 (85.28%)
Diablo II - 29 (14.72%)

Half-Life 2 - 188 (95.43%)
Demons Souls - 9 (4.57%)

Though Lockes did go with D2 and he's one of our 11 current leaders. Tomorrow shouldn't provide much of a shakeup either, though some did try for the RE2 > Tactics upset.

"Life is like a chess game. If you play the opening wrong, you've already lost."
I still can't get over the fact that Undertale beat ME3 and that was my pick!

I figured ME3 is the hated entry in that series (because of the terrible ending) and Undertale was probably going to get a joke run which I wanted to get in on because the joke rally always kills me every contest.

Though it's going to get crushed by Fallout 3 because the nerd is strong in that one especially with Fallout 4 out now.

Not too much going on in the current matches but tomorrow is as big as it gets, with the most debated matchup of the round,

Monster Hunter 4U - 102 (51.78%)
Suikoden II - 95 (48.22%)

the uhhhhh third or so most debated matchup of the round,

Final Fantasy IX - 112 (56.85%)
Kingdom Hearts - 85 (43.15%)

another where quite a few are backing an upset,

Okami - 176 (89.34%)
Warcraft III - 21 (10.66%)

plus the single most important result match of the bracket as our overall favorite goes up against the biggest potential rally fanbase!

Out of our 9 leaders we'll be losing

PSI_NESS
Rahvinn

as they tried for the RE2 upset. That leaves

tkizzle, Menji, voltch, haloiscool backing Suikoden
vs
Kenri, nameplz, jose backing Monster Hunter

Hi Safer, I am here to make you feel better about life:

KH's US percentage since 6:00 AM

6:00 AM - 53.61%
6:30 AM - 53.40%
7:00 AM - 53.40%
7:30 AM - 53.36%
8:00 AM - 53.23%
8:30 AM - 53.21%

It's going to be hard for KH to come back if it's losing percentage in the US. That US percentage really needs to stabilize and not drop any farther, but the ideal situation for KH would be to increase that US percentage again.


KH's current US %: 52.94%

If it wins, it's going to be really close.

I know I'm in the minority who never had a second thought about Suikoden winning, but Okami was a pretty easy pick too.

Ya when I made my bracket I snap picked Suikoden II considering it pretty much lines up with everything this site favors compared to a new unproven game. I only felt super uneasy about the pick after I saw that 52% of gurus went the other way.

Up through today the only matches I really had doubts on were DQ8/P3, Sonic 2/Portal 2, and KH/FF9, so I figure if I missed all 3, I'd still take a -3 into the shitstorm 4-pack tomorrow. It looks like I might end up getting 2 of those 3 right, but still end up with a -3 due to Mass Effect double trolling me.

Correct you are. Two of the seven current leaders at -2 will fall out of the lead as they backed both MH4U and KH, while 11 of the 36 gurus currently tied for 8th at -3 will move into a tie for first place with the remaining five current leaders as they have all four right.

I looked it up because I'm one of those 11. ;) Not confident in my bracket overall, though--one of my picks I regretted as soon as I saw that I'd gone with it in my final bracket, and another is a crazy upset that looks even crazier now--especially since the consensus is that the Undertale rally favored FFVIII. Just have to hope that my late-game picks are all solid.

At least one of my three "upsets" came out correctly today. Dropping from T-8 to who the hell knows tomorrow, but KH losing is gonna get me for 2 more later. At least I have a divergent enough bracket to sustain the loss, I guess.
Hmm, I don't remember making any changes to my bracket after posting in the guru topic, but apparently I have FF9 winning 2 rounds instead of KH. (image for reference, including my dumb RE2 > FFT pick for confirmation: http://i.imgur.com/sZWDIPx.png)

Double checked everything else in my bracket, and it appears to be correct, just those two matches are wrong.

http://www.youtube.com/BeardAwesome
Probably a while still - most of the debated matches so far have only really mattered for one point, since most matches have had a heavy favorite, and most of the heavily debated matches were only forecast to win one round anyway. There also wasn't a ton of similarity in most brackets, most people had at least a couple round 2 matches different, or a round 3, so a couple points here and there aren't going to sink your bracket yet.

If I had to guess, I'd say maybe the GTA V/Mario RPG/Chrono Cross eightpack, since it's just a complete mess and plenty of people are going to lose potential points there.

I made my bracket with zero knowledge then came to B8 and in the 2 weeks between the bracket being opened and the contest starting I learnt enough info to make a reasonably good bracket to the point I'm equal first halfway through round 1 on this board.

Serious bracket makers will be pretty similar on many picks and only vary on a few, especially in later rounds. As such its very possible for eliminations to happen in rd1.

Serious brackets are more likely to suffer earlier eliminations than crazy ones. If you take a flier on something ridiculous winning, you aren't out until that game loses. If your bracket is really good, but you only picked one R1 match differently from someone else, one of you is eliminated when that match happens.

Yay - Raytan is the guru champion of awesomeness.
Yeah, I was amazed to learn I was alone in the lead until I remembered that the point where I got into the tie for the lead was before DKC2-Xenoblade (which, by the way, was a happy accident--I really thought I'd messed up when I looked at my finalized bracket and saw that I'd switched to DKC2).

By the way, the guru has me down for World of Warcraft. That's wrong; I've got Chrono Cross. So even if (when) my Shovel Knight upset pick fails to pan out, I'll still be tied for the lead if I win the day's other big toss-up, SMRPG. (I guess there are some others near the lead who picked WoW so I could fall out of the lead after all if that actually happens, but I'm not going down for a bad pick I didn't make.)

That's the point though. If you don't take any upsets you aren't going to win because if the std result happens, you are in a pool with a ton of people who got it and so chances are you didn't get the most pts out of early round matches.

If you blow an upset, you go out early, but if you get it you give yourself a legit chance. If Oblivion wins tomorrow Ill have a real shot to win this and if not Ill just be where I woulda likely been a month from now.

Easy eliminations for the next four matches (where only one person eliminates another):

MysteriousStan is eliminated by Rahvinn if Shovel Knight wins.
GranzonEx is eliminated by Leon in the case that Shenmue and Shovel Knight both win.

There might be some multi-person eliminations too, but I don't have those automated at the moment, and 16 scenarios is still a fair bit of complexity to go over right now. I can definitely give a better estimate sometime after the freeze though, once there's a better sense of the winners.

If you are trailing another guru in such a way that you have no hope of ever surpassing them -- even if everything comes up perfectly in your bracket from here on out -- then you are eliminated.

I'm still confused on how eliminations work


Basically, you are "eliminated" from winning if there is no way for you to end up with the highest scoring bracket, even if you get the rest of your picks correct because someone ahead of you has enough of the same picks that you can't catch them.

http://i.imgur.com/3DwCNLJ.gif
I always got the elimination thing. But the thing I never understood was how do people know who gets eliminated and by whom, and even early enough to state it when matches come around. I mean, isn't that A LOT of work? I assume there is a database of some sort that people look at from which they can compare and therefore say the outcome; but man, it seems complicated to analyse EVERY possibility. At least that's how I see it.
---
Wild raytan appeared! He chose Samus > Mario. It's... super effective?
In theory, it's a lot of work, but there are definitely some shortcuts you can take.

I call the eliminations I posted 'easy' because you don't need to check future results very much to know that people are eliminated. You just need to be able to check a) the scores people have so far, b) the matches that one person's bracket has different from another person's bracket, and c) how many points they can gain back on the other person in these matches, based on the results so far. If the total in (c) is less than the current difference in scores, they're eliminated.

(Ngamer posted a data dump of all current brackets in post 94, which gives the relevant bracket information, so I built a program to work off of that.)


The tricky eliminations are those where say, person A is one point back of Persons B and C, who each have one possible result of a round two match, with no way to make up points on either of them. In this case, person A is eliminated by both B and C, because at least one of them is guaranteed to finish ahead of person A. You could catch this type of elimination when the match in question happens, but it would look weird because the person is dead for both results, so they were really eliminated after some earlier match.

Okay, I got to a point where I'm pretty sure my spot checker is working. It takes a single person as input, and finds all matches where they're guaranteed not to get points. It then uses their bracket as the results, and tries combinations of the actual winners for the guaranteed losses until it finds a combination where they win.

It doesn't look like there are any complex eliminations right now, though there are some that are close. I tried a spot check of anyone who is within 10 points of elimination by multiple people, since those seem to be the most likely candidates for a complex elim.

It looks like the closest person to elimination might be Master Moltar, who appears to be dead to any scenario where Sonic 2 loses, but will survive if Uncharted 2 wins that match [including the current day's results]. We'll see if anyone comes up before then though, since I'm assuming ideal brackets for the rest of round 1.

Anyway, assuming today's results hold (GTA x2, SMRPG and Chrono Cross), there's one possible elimination for tomorrow.

MysteriousStan is eliminated by Rahvinn if Binding of Isaac pulls the mega-upset over The Witcher 3.

Call me crazy but I actually don't know if Oblivion is out. It's only a 1000 vote deficit and SMRPG's strongest time should be long gone since it's both a Nintendo game and an old JRPG.

"Only" a 1000 vote deficit in less than two hours with the vote totals this low.
---
http://i.imgur.com/3DwCNLJ.gif
A 1000 vote deficit isn't that much to overcome. Even at only cutting 10 votes per update you can make that up in about 8 hours, which is totally doable assuming favor shifts towards Oblivion once the morning vote starts or something (which I did assume in my above post).

Of course, SMRPG has gained another 200-300 votes in the time since I posted the last message, which seems likely to me to continue at that rate for the next few hours, so now this is definitely at a point where I'd call it over regardless. (assuming no rallies of course)

Sounds like about as elegant an algorithm as you're going to be able to find. I imagine it's still a ton of overhead running through that much data with "What If" scenarios.

Do you subsequently save any scenarios where there's a tie-at-best, and look for the first place where those brackets diverge? (Change tie to tie or trailing by one, once round 2 starts, etc., obviously.)

PSI_Ness, theawesomestevr, and I have the 3 OoT > SMW brackets, so we will probably be eliminating each other in round 2 or 3.

Huh... Well, looking at my bracket, Oblivion was just a 1-point match for me. The thing that worries me now is that GTA V vs. GTA:SA isstarting to look a little unlikely, which is something I certainly didn't expect coming from GTA. It's either that or maybe Shenmue and Shovel Knight are actually stronger than we're giving them credit for.

Don't count on it. I may not be solo leader after today but I'm still co-leader and I've got the underdog there.

I figure if SMB3 and FFVI both win their divisions I'm probably golden.

...checking the picks of everyone else who has FFVI winning Division II...looks like Xeybozn and Xuxon both have SMB3 winning Division III as well, but all three of us have different Division I champs. Xey has Melee, I have FFX and Xuxon has CT.

Actually, looking it over...oh, no, wait, that's wrong. When I looked back at post #12 and saw that one other person had my Final Four, then looked it up and realized it was Xeybozn, I thought that one of us would eliminate the other on FFX-Melee. But while we do have the same division champions for Divisions II-VIII and also the same Final Four, there is one very big difference. He has SM64 > FFVI for the first semifinal; I have FFVI > SM64.

But I'm fairly confident that whether it's at the first semifinal going heads up or earlier because of a mutual wrong pick blocking our bizarre upsets from coming to pass, Xeybozn will probably either be the one to eliminate me or will be eliminated by me. Our brackets look fairly similar in the late rounds aside from that divergence on the first semifinal winner.

I'm not really looking for ties or where brackets are likely to be eliminated right now, just the currently alive/dead distinction. I don't think that would be difficult to do though, since my standard checker just checks the divergent matches for alive/dead, so adding a tie component there would probably be easiest if it's worth looking for.

For simple eliminations, the Undertale match really doesn't affect anything here. Fallout 3 had basically a 100% pick rate, aside from 3 Mass Effect pickers, so everyone loses points if Undertale wins, and very few people lose potential points.


As far as complex eliminations, which scenarios would be worth it to check? I'd imagine Uncharted 2 > Sonic 2 would be a large upset at this point, as would FF8 > SMW, so would it be best to just simulate the four Undertale/Fallout 3 and SMB3/RBY scenarios?

Update: no complex eliminations for any of these four scenarios, probably because there are just too many possible results for most of the 8 point matches, and people aren't really losing more than 2 points yet. Losing out on this match won't mathematically eliminate most people, just hurt them a whole lot.

Maybe they'll start showing up later in round 2, but I guess there just isn't the density of brackets that would be needed for them to start showing up now.

I made sure to not have any games from this division going beyond the quarter finals because I knew it'd be the toughest one to predict a winner for. RBY/SMB3/SMW was causing me such headscratching that I couldn't justify any of them to the semi finals on the off chance I was wrong.

Now with Undertale in the mix I'm extra glad I had SM64 > the winner of this division(which I made RBY)

still I'm sure if RBY can't stop Undertale SM64 has no chance either ha... but at least i'll be in the fight!

Having an off the wall bracket means you're more likely to technically "survive" longer because the majority of brackets will be less similar to yours and thus it will be harder to eliminate you.

It means cloelea will be eliminated by you guys. That is, due to bracket similarities, the only way he can get more points than you and win the guru is if Persona 4 somehow beats Super Mario 64.

Don't listen to me because I just stopped by and don't follow this too much, but could it be the case that the difference is they have SM64 going farther and an early elimination of SM64 prevents them from making up the points later?

SM64 is the critical elimination match for me. I just checked some of the top scoring users that had SM64 beating Pokemon. His is basically the same as mine except he took Chrono Trigger.

The irony is if I picked Chrono Trigger I would have eliminated him by 1 point after Super Metroid beats SMG.

Congrats, you guys, for rocking all 4 matches today.

At least you only need one of two results to survive. If you were depending on MGS/DS only, you'd be in trouble.

you're near the top of the rankings even with so many mistakes. Your main competition is ngamer, I think. FF6 v Wind Waker will most likely be your "do or die" match.

Hooray, safe for another day. Just thinking about it though, I don't think I have ever eliminated anybody in a contest since the series contest many years ago. I hope I get the chance here.

Thinking Luigi and WAAAA > Pokemon Trainers was dumb, and Pokemon rocks.
In other news, Valve is a pretty f***ing terrible company, let's be honest.
I have GTA V winning 2 more matches (not counting this one) and I'm still not getting eliminated?

Wow...

Skyrim making the final 4, while looking bad, is worth a lot of points and you are one of the few that has it.

I'm SO glad I took the upset then.

But what about pyresword? His bracket looks better than mine and he has the same four-pack. And Fenny and the other person who also have our same four-pack?

I think the deciding match for our brackets is going to be whether or not RE4 wins its division. Or alternatively Mass Effect 2 v MGS3 if neither of us get points in the first match.

Granted I think both of us will be mutually eliminated at Skyrim v. SM64 before eliminating each other :/

This was my signature, but Raytan, 2013 Guru champion, took it away.

Skyrim vs. Goldeneye revived my hope. But we will get a better measure after seeing how well Skyrim performs against Metroid Prime.

It is.

Hopefully not including me, but it's pretty likely if I was on the line today.

I love how my non-cookie bracket is keeping me from the bloodbath that is round 2.

Except that I'm probably gonna crash and burn when my crazy round 5 upsets don't happen.
39 people up for elimination today, wow.

I imagine I'm safe until whenever Mass Effect 2 goes out....oh wait, that could be tomorrow. Crap.
