World Cup Nation Standings. GO SWEDEN!

Post by umiz » 28 Apr 2017, 08:22

Not unexpectedly, Finland is leading the nations struggle in World Cup. Their höylä ability seem way better than other nations. Is it because of the sauna, the birch trees or because of Karhu beer?

Russia second with Kazan in front and some other good players like AndrY_, JSmith and Kuchitsu collecting points.

But where is Sweden? Historically Swedes have always been great cup players and good overall. Bjenn doing a good job defending our colors. But who is second and third?? Hosp and umiz. I am the third best in this big Elma-Country? NO WAY. We have to take our shit together! Just for our honor! Mengerle, Luther, John, Ramone, BarTek, Jeppe, Boomer, ofta, b0ne, magicman, Dx, Syntaxx, Liam, Dauz, TuA, igge and every other swede come on!

If we do this together we can kick down Norway, and Poland so we atleast come on third place. Remember that every point counts! There is no need for megahöylä. Especially for skilled kuskis like John and Jeppe. Forget your vanity of getting in top 10. Just play and defend SWEDEN!

I hope to reactions in this post and in results!

I'm following this quite closely too =D Poland used to be comfortably ahead of Sweden and Norway in 3rd, but we got our asses thrashed in the last event (poland's 12,27,48 compared to norway's 7,8,15 and sweden's 10,13,15), so now it's actually quite close between the 3! But worry not, I am here to make sure Poland does stay on the podium, and I hope Mielz and schiz will provide support ^^

Another serious fight is for the team's top4 (or actually top3, since Kazan stopped playing). Again, we (TR this time) got our asses kicked quite badly in 710 (our 20,22,27 to SLAM's 2,5,18), so now SLAM are marginally ahead of us 8O Really stoked to see who ends up in the top3 with dat and MiE =)

Yeah, this going to be tight Pawq :) It's nice to see your thoughts about this.

I guess some players feel prestige if they participate. Thats totally wrong. I guess everyone understand how much dedication it's needed to even come in top 20. BUT! It's top 50 that give points. I wouldnt be disappointed to see John or Luther on place 42 and 38 because it would give Sweden points!! Every point counts!

Some swedish reactions plz?
And remember i wont take "I hef no tim0rz to play" as a reason. Every week have 168 hours! Even I who have a little kid, working like hell, renovating, writing poetry and drink beer like a maniac have time. There is always time for some Elma and especially some World Cup (this fantastic cool competition made by community and the true enthusiast of the game).

And quite a fall from World Cup 6's 5th place. I noticed a while ago because last time I was competing with some of the canucks for top 20, ending with 3 canadians in top 21, and now nothing. Denmark had a bit of a fall from last time as well, with four in top 22 last time we could score a nice amount of nation points, but only two this time, so it's hard for them to keep up. Nice to see a new country in the top like Poland fighting for top 3 while not even in top 10 last time. Finland can't be touched, but 2nd place very much up for grabs.

You know that each country and team only gets points for the 3 best players in each event, right?

Partly my fault for Canada having such poor representation this WCup. I think last one, I messaged everyone (Boneless, Dynamo, Juish) on FB and got everyone excited about it. This time around, I have 2 kids and one on the way so hardly any time to commit to this that I would need, let alone to download the game again and get setup. I did see something about playing elma on the web now though?

One big beef with this WCup is why isn't there easy links anywhere to internet (web based) replays of the winning times anywhere? I'd like to see these amazing recs everyone is driving without installing the game again. Guess you can call me an Elma snob now but just my 2 cents. NEED links to winning event replays here folks!

PS, I think in past cups and even internal standings, usually Canada is competing with Poland for 5th and 6th. Usually from what I remember, it would go 1. Finland 2. Sweden 3. Norway (back in Tor days) 4. Russia 5. Poland 6. Canada 7. Hungary or something. 8. USA

I guess it's an oversight to not provide links here on Lauta, easy to forget when they are provided in irc and Discord. You can find them all here either way http://www.recsource.tv/

Yeah! Thanks to Mielz's continuing asskicking and Stooq's row of amazing results in the last 3 rounds (13th last time!) Poland has left Norway and Sweden far behind, and is now right on Russia's tail. I think we're gonna make a surprising top2 appearance on the very last day of the World Cup ;)

Aaaaaaaaaaand... Time Riders are now on the team podium alongside dat and MiE!!! Gotta maintain those gaps to EF and SPEED for eternal glory =)

Funfact: ICE and IS (:icecream:) are in neighbouring positions, 9th and 10th, with 496.5 and 469.5 points respectively (note the swapped digits!!) :>
