In my haste to post the final update, I definitely left out some thank-yous. :(

Thank you to best set of captains we've had for this tournament: pwnasaurus, dwwnp, ExedExes, and QAOP_Spaceman. You guys did an excellent job in drafting your teams. Now that the tournament is over, I took a quick glance at the TG threads and I can see that you all were actively updating and motivating your teams the whole time.

Although score verifications couldn't keep up with the pace of submissions this time around, I'd like to thank krehztim for his work in verifying RU scores. And of course, thanks to Wes Copeland for his working in running the actual tournament site.

Congrats ITG, way too good in the end. Very competitive tournament for all teams though, best one yet I reckon! I had an absolute blast. Everyone involved should give themselves a pat(33999) on the back for what will be a memorable tournament in my eyes

Thanks Jry for running the event! Very seamless and without fault. Now get to verifying, we want official scores this time tomorrow Kappa

Having said that there are always things that can be improved, but whats important is we are learning from each one of these to try and make the next one better.

<3 it!

Will BBH be able to overtake the pro for first place overall in the tourney?  It's a tall order, but I wouldn't count him out. 

I could not dig deep enough to gain the remaining points. New Rally-X destroyed me, Alpine Ski, Pengo, and Rampage brought me down a bit too. I knew there was no way I'd be catching Martin but I wanted slightly better scores on some stuff just for the sake of my pride. Can't complain too much about my performance when I got five #1's!

Hats off to the Wags wrecking crew, well done fellows. Bravo!

Pats on the back to everyone who got stuck in, whether your score ended up grey or not.

Thx also to Wolf for starting it, and Jry for keeping it going with such aplomb.

I think Spacey played more Rampage and  <pacman> than I played all other games combined.   Kappa

In all seriousness though, thanks to everyone for playing, captaining and organizing.  Was a lot of fun, even Pengo.  I got fortunate with the games list being for the most part full of familiar to me games from the golden era and the other eras had some reboots of popular classic games that didn't take long to figure out.  Most other stuff was either a shmup or platformer which I enjoy playing/learning anyway.

While I enjoyed being a captain, ultimately I enjoy just being a player in this more and not having the responsibility of running things, so it's one and done for me as captain (though since we tied last year I believe ITG is the first sole winning team in Yolympics history)    <Mruczek>   I'm not sure I'll have the time in July to IGBY this year with some work stuff going on but hopefully I will.  If not, see you cats next January, when possibly another captain will pick up the next version of the ITG and carry the torch.   Kreygasm

ExedExes has been eerily quite this tourney.  Does he make a huge run at the last day?  We'll find out.
I may have been quiet, but my team sure wasn't. I got all my good stuff in the first week of the competition, then real life kinda sorta got in the way (as well as the Yie-Ar Kung Fu high score contest @ GameEx) and the time I did have to play, I couldn't improve all that well. My favorite games had to be Gaplus and New Rally-X, games I play on a regular basis. While I can max out the bonus stages in Gaplus (and did three times in my submission, although that is NOT my PB), I was really surprised that I couldn't break 200k in NRX.

The very first pick in the Yolympics made #1 overall. Martin did not disappoint. TRB, Sawys, Blackflag82 and Bestcellar were the grinders that got us out of the proverbial basement that we were stuck in for a while and while I'm happy with third, 2nd would have been nicer, and that's why I had to try in the waning hours of the tournament.

Unlike last year, all the games were not a good fit for me, but I was satisfied at least to do better on Twin Cobra hours before this ended. As great of a month as it has been, I'm ready to move on.

Thank you xelnia and my captain brethren for this year's event. You all did your homework in drafting, that I agree, but I'm still glad I was able to get Giro-X!

See you next year!

Big thanks to Jry for carrying the tourney torch.  I hated this list of games from the outset, but I actually had a lot more fun than I thought I would.  It's nice to know my complete lack of playing Pengo and Wonder Boy didn't really make a difference in the end.  I AM going to No Bomb TC2 one of these days.  I had a fantastic team - thanks Zerst for your hard work and leading the charge.  Barra was once again predictably and consistently awesome.  This was probably my favorite contest, though I do have a soft spot for Crap Tourneys.  Thanks everyone for making me work my ass off, bringing mediocrity to new heights.

Sweet job this year everyone. It was another nail biting fest right until last few submissions on midnight. FYI here is a spreadsheet I did for Yolympics 2017. It takes the standings and adjusts them with a timestamp priority for ties (Basically first person to submit the score gets the points). I also adjust the overall player standings by who has the highest submitted score on any given title. I haven't triple checked this but think its accurate. Lots of cool little info as well regarding timestamps and avg score per submissions/etc. People might enjoy here you go all.

Thank you to Jeremy, Wes, and all my fellow players.  This was a fun one.  The competition for second place kept this thing interesting to the very end.  And second place is the best place anyways... after all, you don't put your hamburger on top of the bun.  ITG and Spaceballs were buns, really only there for their structural support.  Team Beef was the juicy flavor in the middle, and we were delicious.
