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!
---

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.

Good luck to everyone!

For instance Wigs has Smash 4 in the finals against Ocarina, so when FF7 eliminates it he loses soooooooo many potential points that everyone and their grandmother and their dog all kill him at once.

For the second post - no single bracket is far enough ahead of those people to eliminate them on their own (with the idea being that Bracket A is eliminated by Bracket B if A has fewer points to be gained in future matches than the current point difference between A and B). However, if at least one of two or more brackets will eventually outscore A (for any combination of results in which A will not gain points), then A is eliminated by the combination of all of those brackets, even if we don't know which one will eliminate them until a future match.

The easiest example is probably SubDeity, in the case that FF6 and FF7 win. What I have noted down is this:
SubDeity by foxhead[CT], LordoftheMorons[Melee]
If FF6/FF7 win, SubDeity will be at 114, foxhead will be at 128, and LordoftheMorons will be at 130, with the only differences between their brackets being the division 1 finalist (worth 8 points), and the semifinalist out of divisions 7/8 (worth 16 points). Even though SubDeity can gain 16 points on both of them if RE4 wins, it doesn't matter, because one of them will gain points from Chrono Trigger/SSBM to push their lead over him over 16 points.

For the people that have FF7 in the finals (and in the event of a FF7 loss), I start with the base scenario that maximizes their potential points, and check all permutations of potential finalists that are possible with their bracket. It turns out that all the possible finalists in those scenarios are accounted for in someone's bracket, which will put the correct person unreachably ahead, even if we don't know which person it will be yet.

My program spits out something like this: http://pastebin.com/usye2wi8 (for FF6+FF7, for example), so I'm just distilling it down a bit.

They need SMW to get to the quarterfinals to beat you as if SMW dies today, they can only gain 8 points on you if ME2 > MGS happens, and they're already 12 points behind.

Wait, who'd I get eliminated by? I just did a CTRL+F on the eliminations up to now and I don't see where I was eliminated. As of this round I was still alive, only getting Chrono Trigger wrong so far (with Undertale probably soon to follow)

Even then, this was the post that would've listed me as eliminated, if that were the case, but I don't see myself listed here as an elimination.

Assuming that the current results hold for ~4 more hours, we have these final eliminations from yesterday:

DomaDragoon by LordoftheMorons, SpikeDragon, therobbieg
Fenny by SpikeDragon
jonthomson by scaryice, Xuxon
Polycosm by Kotetsu
RockMFR by JJH777
SirBinro by OFool
Tjian by OFool
WhiskeyNick/RPGLord by BKSheikah

This brings the elimination leaderboard to here, with Kotetsu, Leon, and OFool leading with three eliminations each:
http://i.imgur.com/2EdqWmo.png

Terastodon

Those Ange posted for division 3 were correct.

SpikeDragon currently should not be eliminated, as far as I can tell.

Checking eliminations for correctness, a couple got missed from Round 3, Division 1 (though they were late additions):

FFDragon
Oxbridge
Ringworm
Terastodon

Those Ange posted for division 3 were correct.

SpikeDragon currently should not be eliminated, as far as I can tell.


So these 4 should be dead and Spike alive right?

You lost the correct finalist, basically. If Metroid is gone, you're relying on TP to win a few rounds, otherwise you're hoping for Undertale to go as far as possible, since no one can gain points on you from those wins.

Yeah. I chose incorrectly in that SMB3-RBYG thing, so Undertale being in that same division is saving my bacon. Especially now that FFX is gone!

Do we have a list of dead brackets assuming Undertale wins the tournament?

For example, WhiteLens eliminates Cookie because Match 122 (the only remaining match where they differ) is irrelevant to the result.

Well, Metroid is winning. But yeah, I was greatly overestimating the loss from RBY's run when Undertale cuts that off at 6 points.

Completely coincidentally, I've made up five of those on most people just by getting DKC2 right so far (But I'm not confident at all it can beat SotN and I have that pick so uh welp LOL)

SM64's weakness today is another future nail in my bracket.

Plus, that Zelda game was available on two consoles (soon to be three), is sitting in the sweet spot of the "Zelda curse" (displaced by Skyward Sword and now remembered fondly), and just had an HD remake announced.

Twilight Princess is vastly underrated in this contest, imo. The game is OoT's spiritual sequel and people forget that Twilight Princess was the highest selling Zelda game until (or unless) you add OoT 3D's numbers to OoT's total.

Sorry, looks like there's a bit of human error there. You should be in the Metroid Prime bucket, not the Mario bucket - I must have classified you wrong or pasted in the wrong place. The image should be 100% correct, since there's no thought required from me when generating it.

Skyrim can still make the finals! Mario's been bombing lately so Mario choking hard isn't completely out of the question, and then the internet will suddenly get sick of Pokemon and Undertale for some mysterious reason and rally behind Skyrim!

It's then likely going to be Kenri, jacko and Haste_2 tied atop the leaderboard.

That pick makes sense! I still believe that MM is higher on the Zelda hierarchy than ALttP. Only problem is that ALttP is higher on the SNES hierarchy than SM and SM users SNESFEAR to beat MM.

If IT'S FREAKING MARIO had done his job last round, Majora's Mask would still be in line for the win!

Yeah, if you've got something weird in the late rounds, you'll probably only come up for elimination on days that it's in a match. I've only been listed as having the potential to be eliminated once so far, when one of my finalists was up.

I suspect I'll be in much more serious trouble next round since it'll actually be the underdog then! (Really, it's only a matter of time before I'm eliminated. FFVI > FFVII was a sexy upset pick because of that series poll, and with the way SNES games have been beasting it still seems like a pick that could work out for me, and actually taking it all the way to the finals, Undertale will keep anyone from getting points there so I just need to get a lead before then...yeah that's not happening. But the really bad part is that QF match. FFVI > FFX or even FFVI > Melee, it's plausible. FFVI > CT? No way. Even though I'm already guaranteed a loss in the Division I final (I had FFX), I'm rooting hard for Melee because I know FFVI can't beat Chrono Trigger.)

some corrections - these brackets should be dead from other matches:
Lockes Ragnarok (RBY/Undertale match)
tennisboy (RBY/Undertale match)
cloelea (Mario 64 match)
Lieutenant Kettch - probably the SMRPG match, judging from missed matches? This bracket was never in my data set, somehow, but it doesn't change any previous eliminations.

Lastly, we have early eliminations for tomorrow, since these matches look to be all wrapped up. 31 brackets are on the line tomorrow, out of 78 brackets remaining.

Your bracket is very cookie in the amount of risks taken, but you have a lot of points in Chrono, Pokemon, and especially as it pertains to this quarter of the bracket, RE4. Shadow winning next round would recoup any losses from losing MGS3 since no one has Shadow winning that match.

RIP Ngamer.

I'll give SotC the overnight to try to redeem itself, but just a reminder of what's to come: We have 15 more matches in 9 days, and we're narrowing the field from ~65 brackets to 1. The first two division finals will take out about a third of the remaining brackets, and we'll probably have a decent idea of the winner by Wednesday or so.

nope, there's an Undertale in the way

i wonder if i'd win this if Undertale wins, and CT/MGS3 make the final 4. nobody has Undertale going this far, and i'm sure not many others picked both of those two, if anyone. though if someone did, i'm probably effectively dead tomorrow when FFVI loses. either way, i think this is the furthest i've gotten while having any hope of winning, even if it's remote.

nevermind, scaryice is already 9 points ahead and picked MGS3 next round, so he'll eliminate me when FFVII wins. that'd become a 17 point gap that i can only make up 16 of. dang.

Gurus aren't doing too bad this year:
-We currently claim 36 of the top 105 brackets in the contest.
-43 guru brackets are in the 99th percentile.
-Only the bottom 20 guru brackets failed to break the 90th percentile.
-Cookie Monster is only one point shy of the leader board

With very few upset picks in today's match, these stats paint a pretty clear picture of guru dominance heading into the division finals.

Go us!

^ I'm not so sure about that. I suspect that perhaps the people who have undertale winning may end up being more than 64 points behind whoever is leading before the final match. If they took such an unlikely game to win, I imagine the rest of their bracket would be full of outside picks that did not pay off too.
Undertale is worth 127 points, not 64 (seeing as a normal "good" bracket would have it going out in round 1). Not all of the people picking Undertale are going to have botched the rest of the bracket THAT badly.
---

For instance, over 50% of the bracket entries currently would not be able to catch first place even if he did not pick the winner because he is too far ahead (assuming the contest end was happening now).

This gap will only get more evident as we continue. The contest still has a long way to go in terms of points.

Ahh right my bad. Well f*** haha

64 points seemed possible to get ahead of. Probably not 127 though :(

Guess the only hope is an undertale loss?
Undertale has not won you know.
---
Why do we exist?What happens when we stop existing?
124 Gurus were better than me in BGE 2015 contest!
Yeah if it's stopped by RBY everything will be fine, and if it's stopped by OoT it's 63 points which may allow a few of the Undertale pickers to rise up, but they probably won't be filling the top 50.
---
I don't know how much you know about women, but Dr. Pizza is an expert. - The Mana Sword
If anything stops it I kind of hope it is Pokemon RBY. I loved that game so much as a kid. Probably my most replayed game of all time.

... Either that or somehow RE4 makes it to the final and beats undertale haha (not going to happen, but damn that would be spectacular).
I need it to be stopped by RBY and then for RBY not to get a hero boost and still lose the next round. To FF7, which needs to not lose to CT.

...and then I'll still get at most second place because my guru is dying when CT beats Melee >_>

Mmm interesting! I didn't realise that we were still doing 2 matches per day for the division finals. Not sure how I feel about that - although, really doesn't matter too much for anything besides undertale match day.

This is the make or break day for most people. Out of 65 remaining brackets, 57 are up for elimination tomorrow. These 8 users are safe in any scenario: Colegreen, jacko_vdz, Kenri, kinsho, Mr3790, scaryice, SSBMGuy, starfox2245. If you predicted division 1 correctly and you're still alive, you're looking good right now, if not, you're probably going to need a lot of things to break right to win.

What a crazy day it will be tomorrow. Good to be safe however.

Projecting my chances to win the Guru... I either need RBY or Undertale to win the contest.

And assuming Undertale gets it done, I need FF7 > Chrono Trigger to beat Haste2. I wasn't feeling good about FF7 but considering the remake trailer this could be an epic match.

Started from the bottom now we here
This is beautiful.

My bracket has Melee > FF7, then SM64 > Melee. If the rally continues next round, Melee can beat FF7, but it won't beat Undertale. Since nobody has Undertale in their brackets, that side of the bracket is a clean advantage for me.

As for the other side, all that needs to happen is for Ocarina to do its fuckig job and for RE4 to get to the semifinals (which isn't that unlikely because MGS1/3 have been taking turns embarassing themselves in this contest). Then, my bracket will be the only one to have both the Melee and RE4 upsets, and I win the guru. The finals won't even matter.

I could be upset about rallies, but it's hard to be when they are working perfectly to my favor.

The later I'm aware of. But the former is weird since I'm the one who would benefit more from Undertale losing (I have SM64 getting to the finals, he has World).

Maybe he just needs Ocarina winning more than I do?

"Mighty boobs." - Vlado
Oh man, I'm officially starting to get excited. Even though I have RE4, SMRPG winning probably helps me more to take away the possibility of RE4 making it to the semis. Of course, I want to get greedy and boost myself on the actual bracket leaderboard. But if these results hold and Melee can beat FF7, assuming Melee then gets stopped by either Undertale or OoT, I think I win Guru. I've been trying not to get too far ahead of myself, and Melee might arguably still be the underdog against FF7, but god damn.

In the spreadsheet, you can filter by the winners of specific matches, or filter by the overall guru winners if you're looking for someone's specific winning scenarios. A couple people only appear to be able to tie at best right now, but they have higher tiebreakers than the person they're tied with, so they aren't really eliminated.

Because he picked RE4 to win it all. That pick alone would be worth 120 more points if it worked out.

So I need MGS3 to beat SMRPG/RE4, and FFVII + OOT to make the Finals to win?

Oh man. Can FFVII beat Undertale!?
---
Formerly known as Dilated Chemist
We don't know if FFVII can even beat Melee!

FFVII's best shot is for a combination of SM64 rallying and Melee/FFVII rallying crossfire to take out Undertale ahead of time (which is pretty damn unlikely itself). I'd say FFVII has essentially zero chance at beating Undertale directly.

Wow, you aren't kidding when you say "all other brackets". If the current MGS3/SMRPG result holds up, wizards drops to the bottom of the list of dead brackets and can only avoid staying there with a combination of Melee > FF7 and ALttP > OoT.

I'd be lying if I said I was confident Melee can stop the Undertale train.

But in this contest, it's RALLY or BE RALLIED.

And Ocarina of Time hasn't looked so hot this contest. If Chrono Trigger really was strong enough to beat Ocarina, and Melee managed to knock it out, then...

Fun Bracket here. I'm from Brazil.
So... it seems the Smash rally is what is making SM64 win. Question: will Undertale overcome this like usual? Or will the Smash rally grow?

I'm willing to bet on Undertale for obvious reasons, but this is a factor that didn't exist in the previous UT matches.
No, Smash is winning too easily. If the UT rally had strongly favored FF7 it might have forced Melee to rally more, causing more spillover to SM64. As is though we basically have last match minus the 7500 vote lead Pokemon was able to build up.

oh, hey Steiner!

I probably would have done Star Fox 64 if it was another games contest. It's the only one of my favorites that won't really make the contest otherwise, but would still have a chance at doing decently if it did. As for characters, I had no idea. All my favorite characters were either going to make the contest anyway or so obscure that even as the guru nom they probably wouldn't make it in (or if they did, they'd wind up a 16 seed and getting blown out by Link). Not that it matters now, though.

Not even the power of rallies could beat DpObliVion, the 2015 BGE Guru Champion.

Another chapter written on my book -- The Guru Scrolls 2015: DpObliVion
Assuming next contest is a character battle, any idea who you'll want us to nominate?

Hmmm, that's a good thought. Shadow could you do a Google spreadsheet that would let people play around to find out who would have won if result X Y or Z had gone differently? That would be pretty fun!


I could probably do it if I tried/wanted to, but it would require building the logic into a new spreadsheet, which I don't think is worth the time at this point. The previous sheet worked well because it was a relatively low number of static rows that were pre-calculated, while this one would either need to pre-calculate (2^127) rows, or basically recreate the scoring portion of my java program in a spreadsheet.
