Russian MCR Marathon 2015: Last Lap is Decisive
« on: October 08, 2015, 02:35:22 pm »

Marathon-2015The last Stage of Russian MCR Marathon 2015 has started. What are the chances to win in this lengthy online event? Who may be in top-3, top-10?

Russia vs. Rest of World

During eight months more than 200 (!) players have played at least one 4-Round game. Each marathon stage collects 100+ players all over the Europe and Asia. After 4 elapsed stages Russian players take 8 out of the top 10 places.

Winner Scenarios

By Marathon Regulations final player's score is based on 4 best out of 5 Stage results. Let's take all results of players in the top and make some guesses regarding final results (see chart).

We consider 4 scenarios:
* "Min" -- worst scenario where Stage 5 result is worse than result of any other Stage.
* "Max" -- ultimate performance, winning of Stage 5 (1000 points),
* "Good" -- adding average performance of 4 Stages and neglecting the lowest possible result,
* "Best" --  neglecting the lowest possible result and adding the average of 3 left Stages.

We see that the best chances to win Marathon has player "captainflam". Next 2 places can be won by "yenia" and "chicat". Good chances to be the 4th has player "Bronto". Places 5-6 can be won by "ComboRus" and "TAHHA".

Winners and Contenders

TOP-3 places in Stage 1 are won by Russian players: 1st -- yenia, 2nd -- Bronto, 3rd -- TAHHA.
TOP-3 places in Stage 2 are won by non-Russian players: 1st -- captainflam, 2nd -- Ratatadedoras, 3rd -- BIGHmj.
TOP-3 places in Stage 3 are won by players: 
1st -- kenny974, 2nd -- chicat, 3rd -- ComboRus.
TOP-3 places in Stage 4 are won by players: 1st -- Qidui, 2nd -- Bronto, 3rd -- Goldo.

It turned out that many players have no any idea where to look for Marathon results. Here are links:
