Survivor Fantasy League Scoreboard- HHH week 8

We have a new queen of Ponderosa. And we have a new king atop the Pick-4 standings.

pr_fantasyleague_bnr2

Desi was on 28% of teams, and about 20% of the top 25 teams. But just as with Jessica last week, being on tribes that were generally successful before the merge helped her earn a decent amount of points before her exit.

As always, you can see the full player popularity rankings here: Purple Rock Pick-4 Fantasy Teams

Individual scoring

At last, some interesting scoring! I’ll go chronologically here:

Chrissy, Cole, Devon, JP, and Ryan get 1 point for the reward challenge win. Joe doesn’t get a point, because he didn’t actually win a challenge.

3 points to Ryan for finding the idol.

4 points to Cole for the immunity win.

2 points each to Ashley, Ben, Chrissy, Cole, Devon, JP, Mike, and Ryan for post-merge VTEP. No points for Lauren, because she didn’t cast a vote. And while you could make an argument that the people who didn’t get it right on the re-vote shouldn’t get 2 points, I think the group as a whole voted out the player they wanted gone. Also, when in doubt, we tend to lean towards awarding more points rather than less.

Pick-4 League

Rogers Communist Manifesto takes over the lead this week, opening up a 5-point advantage on a group of four people that includes our beloved live-blogger Matt and new commenter Star Z. PRP meetup attendee Vaderdawsn moves her team into sixth place, and fellow meetup attendee EmAndScoutInBK moves into the top 25 for the first time this week. Em is joined in a tie for 22nd place by longtime commenter Diego Armando. And my real life human friend Friend Chooser lost her first player and fell to 13th place this week.

Champions and Outcasts Leagues

JaredHolland seals his fate this week, falling out of next season’s Champions League after losing his last player. XL Pelican’s lead is now 10, with only two players (former champion Jersey Luck and Costanza-strategy-deploying DrVanNostrand) having intact teams in the quest to dethrone XL Pelican.

In the Outcasts League, Blurry Denzel loses his first player and falls out of a crowded pack at the top. Matt takes a very slight lead, and absolutely no one is concerned that Saturday Night Palsy has Ryan and Ben- two of the season’s most-featured players.

Other leagues

We allowed people to do their own draft-based leagues again this season, because drafts are fun. You can find the results of those leagues here (click the tabs at the bottom to switch to see the other leagues): PRP fantasy leagues.

  • gouis

    I am currently crushing the FOTM league with a whopping 82 points. However I don’t feel good about my Joe/Mike combo that is left.

    I am also killing Kemp in the “Treats League” 199 to 117, and I feel much better about that as long as the new official PRP favs of Chrissy and Devon don’t completely run shit.

    • Blurry Denzel

      Its ridiculous how much you’re wrecking shit in the FOTM league. No one man should have all that power.

      • gouis

        I just went heavy healers because they seemed like a very well rounded tribe. But post merge that seems to be more of a blessing than a curse. C’mon Mike you likable nerd!

    • Diego Armando

      I thought my team/Pretty Boy Probst’s team was good, but DAYUM GOUIS!

  • Blurry Denzel

    Well I guess I’m now all in on Team Lauren in Outcast. I’m starting to think I keep on getting invited back because I’m such an easy person to beat, which is true.

    • gouis

      No it’s because you’re great and super nice to everyone. On the other hand I only get invited every third season or so….

      • Alkanarra

        If I ever get invited it’s because they decided they wanted an easy win.

        I was so close this year to “bottom five, baby.” Damn Desi couldn’t have gotten voted out last week.

        • Outcasts invitation process is a tangled web of mystery, other than the fact that PRP staff = automatic entry. Unfortunately, a lot of the PRP staff got really bad at fantasy Survivor last season, so we took up a third of the spots this time.

        • gouis

          You’ve been around long enough you deserve a shot!

          • Alkanarra

            I’ve lost to Random Luck every year. By a wide margin. I personally feel like maybe performance should be something of a factor, so I’m cool with it.

            Can’t wait to pick another all-minority team next year. It’s bound to pay off sometime!

          • For the record, Matt let a computer draft his team this season. He is currently in second place out of 216 teams.

          • Mike Hirsch

            I should try that next season. It can’t be much worse than picking for myself.

          • I also let a computer pick my Outcasts team, and I’m one point off the lead.

      • Diego Armando

        I got in twice by asking and have not been back since.

        • Alycia Swift

          Ditto.

  • Can I admit I was so frustrated at Cole for AGAIN missing the chance to get points by finding the idol that I forgot Ryan is also on my team and thus I got the points anyway…

    Then Cole won immunity… Nice to actually gain on the leaders this week a tad bit. Maybe I can at least break the first page by the end of my first ever Pick 4?

    • If Roark weren’t weighing you down, you’d probably be there already.

      • I considered swapping Mike for Roark after ep. 1 but stuck to my guns. That’s what I get for buying the hype…

        • Assistant Dragon Slayer

          That’s exactly what I did after ep. 1. If I had stuck to my guns I’d be sitting pretty in 67th place.

          • Wait you had Mike but swapped him out with Roark? I had Roark from the beginning because there was buzz about her. Stupid buzz…

          • Assistant Dragon Slayer

            Yeah. And to make it worse I made the exact same mistake in MvGX by dropping David after his disastrous ep. 1.

          • Switching and then regretting my switch was my big fear, so I sat on Roark instead.

        • Diego Armando

          My strategy is load up on promising players before episode 1 so I have them as backup, then react accordingly after episode 1. My pre team was Ali, Ben, Devon, Joe. After episode 1, I dropped Ali for Ryan due to Ryan’s prominence, switched Devon for Cole, due to peer pressure (everyone here loved preseason Cole) and swapped Joe for Mike figuring Mike would find the idol. I then swapped Cole back for Devon when I remembered he was close to Ryan and gave synergy.

          Last year I switched up my team about 8 times and placed in the bottom 20.

          • Diego Armando

            I just realized that Roger’s Communist Manifesto had my original Ben, Cole, Mike, Ryan team and is currently winning.

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Wow, that sucks!

  • Beni

    Should Cole and Mike have gotten voting points?

    They did not vote for the boot (They voted for Joe) and as far as we knew, they were not clued in on the split vote plan.

    • The rule that we use is that if you take part in a plan to split the votes, you get points for voting someone out as long as the person that goes home was part of the vote-splitting plan. Vote-splitting is a coordinated strategy, so if you’re taking part in it you’re taking part in the plan to vote someone out.

      • Beni

        Right Right. But I’m saying that Mike and Cole were not part of the vote-splitting plan/ coordinated strategy. The majority alliance did not share their plan to split the vote with them as they obviously did not know Desi was also being voted for. Their vote for Joe was minor scheming from Ben and mainly Mike’s attempt to get into the majority. Bottom line they were not part of the official plan.. and on top of that they didn’t even vote for Desi.
        Just my thought on why they shouldn’t get the points

        • purplerockandy

          But… they did vote for Desi?

          • Mike Hirsch

            Right, they kind of had to be in on the plan to some extent to know that.

          • purplerockandy

            Even if they weren’t… they voted out the person who went home. The discussion ends there.

  • True Alainer

    last week: omg I almost changed Desi for Jessica on my team, I’m so glad I didn’t do it
    this week: Desi is voted out, Jessica scored 1 more point than her

  • Saturday Night Palsy

    Look at me in the Outcasts League herding my little purple goats to the end! I’m probably the best player who once lived in Boston to ever play in this league!

    • Mike Hirsch

      I never lived *in* Boston, so technically this can be true.

  • Hornacek

    Draft Time Bitches League Update

    @Kemper Boyd makes it 2 weeks in a rows at 1st place with 73 points.

    @Alycia Swift climbs from 3rd to 2nd with 68 points, but she loses Desi, meaning that every one in this league has now lost at least 1 player.

    Falling from 2nd to 3rd is @ADS Dragon Slayer, very close behind 2nd at 66 points. Still neck and neck!

    I remain at 4th place with 51 points, the gap between 3rd and 4th growing every week. Come on Joe – find more idols! Come on Chrissy – vote out more women!

    @EmAndScoutInBK remains in fifth with 44, continuing to slowly close the gap on me. Will power-couple JP and Ashley (hey, remember when that was a thing?) help her overtake me?

    @Ms Woozah, whose entire team was already eliminated, is still in last place with 17 points

    • Alycia Swift

      I forgot I even had Desi.

  • Hornacek

    Hey, the Champions and Outcasts tables are separated. Much easier to read now.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      It makes it so much easier for my fans to watch me destroy my “competition”.

      • Taako From Teevhii

        You have fans?

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          Oh yes! And I still have 49 jerseys for sale from when I won Kaoh Rong.

        • Diego Armando

          He has patrons, not fans.

    • Please note that separating those tables is the sum total of the effort I will expend on this season. Any other changes or requests will have to wait for next season, after an extensive period of refilling my laziness reserves.

      • Hornacek

        You’re like a groundhog that came out of his hole in February, did his job looking for his shadow, and now going back into your hole for another 11+ months.

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          #FebruaryOfPurpleRockJohn

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        I’m glad you expended the effort. In addition to making them easier to read (as pointed out by @hornacek:diqus ), it is now easier to tell Matt and Mark apart because there is no way Matt would be in Champions.

      • sharculese

        If you need a quick boost to your laziness reserves you can always eat some Totinos pizza rolls.

      • TheForRealDeal

        Um, yes, I’m here to report that the last column of the pick four results is now hidden under a little button? I’m checked out on pick four, but if you could fix it that would be great…

        • I’ll send that right over to the requests department.

          *Balls up paper, throws it in trash.*

          • DrVanNostrand

            Did you print out that comment just so you could have the satisfaction of balling it up and throwing it in the trash?

          • Maybe…

        • Hornacek

          It was 3 weeks ago when I requested that the Outcasts and Chamions table be separated. So you should expect your issue to be resolved at the finale’s post.

  • Maritimer

    I would really appreciate it if Ryan would stop finding idols

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      When he’s found them all, he will stop. And then he will play them successfully.

      • I hope he keeps picking up idols like he picks up luggage.

        • Hornacek

          Did you see him carry that plate? #BellhopStrong

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Just because room service is beneath us it doesn’t mean we couldn’t move a plate if we wanted to.

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          “Was Ryan pushing a luggage cart full of immunity idols when he walked by?”

      • Maritimer

        If he wanted to not do that, I would also appreciate it

  • Ms. Sweaterfan

    My rank and total points are exactly the same right now, so…that’s something

  • Wow I got bumped up 13 places. Nice.

  • Really thought I was screwed with Cole, but even if he gets voted out next episode, he still got me a decent amount of points.

    • Hornacek

      “Really thought I was screwed with Cole …”

      Jessica, is that you?

  • forever1267

    I have 3 players, Ben, JP, and Ryan who don’t seem to want to work together. But they could yield so much power. And get me on the Front Page. Abs and Chest Heart Powers Activate!!!

  • orangealfy

    When Cole finally drops I’ll sail up on the list, Roark mistake or no. But maybe she’ll come back in a twist…??? :/

    • the sky is falling

      Yes, she may come back in the ‘I don’t remember them being on the show’ challenge.

      • orangealfy

        Wahahahaha!- what a disappointment…

        • the sky is falling

          No kidding, she looked good on paper

      • Ms. Sweaterfan

        In an even more shocking twist, JP wins the challenge without even being voted out first!

  • Side Character

    DAS Bus update

    132 points. That’s how much Alycia Swift has. Diego Armando and I don’t even have 100. That’s all you need to know.
    The next update will be at the finale when we see the total damage that has been caused by Alycia’s slaughter of the competition. Between now and then you can assume she’s crushing it as always.

    • Diego Armando

      I’m not doing well.

    • Alycia Swift

      I’m doing well here but not in the pick 4.

      • Side Character

        Hey, you could be doing worse. You could be me in pick-4. I’d be bragging about being 89th. You don’t even want to know how obnoxious I’d be if I was where Diego is.

  • Woo I climbing up in Champion’s League. I so ready to kick XL Pelican off the top slot; next season when I actually have a chance to do so.

    • ExtraLargePelican

      Watch your back.

    • Diego Armando

      Pierre will eat your soul!

  • the sky is falling

    Looks like I still have a shot to win pick 4, but that would result in a horrible FTC. hope I lose! although Mike wins in a Mike Joe Chrissy Finale for sure

  • BIGBALLERSONLY

    BIG BALLERS BABY

    • gouis

      Naw

  • DrVanNostrand

    My strategy is somewhat less successful this season, but still not too bad. I’m above average in Pick 4, and it looks like Devon and Ashley will be around for a while in Champions League. I’m just going to pretend the Palsy League doesn’t exist.
