just scroll down a bit
“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

A journey of a thousand leagues starts with a single step
Great competition, well organised and ran. We had no trouble with the car park, probably the only benefit from having a C1 !! it fits in most small spaces.
Will be back next year.
Are the rankings going into the DE posted anywhere?
Or is it possible for someone to post them here?
Particularly interested in MS
Hi thanks for your reply!
I was interested in the full details like the V/M, indicators, HS and HR etc.
Just trying to get my head around how placings are calculated after a fencer is eliminated from the DE
Rather than going throug all the pool results! I know the ranking were posted on the wall in the hall, just wondered if a copy was available anywhere
Fox66 - you move up or down depending on the people around you and how far they get...
For instance if you are seeded 15th in an event with 16 fencers and take out the number 2 seed then you will gain the 2 slot for the rest of the competion. If you lose the next fight then you will be placed 8th overall assuming the number 16 lost their fight. If the number 16 beat hte number 1 seed and then got knocked out your seed would be 7. The person being knocked out by you (number 2 seed) will finish 9th or 10th depending on what happens to the number 1 seed.
Essentially those being knocked out of a round are downwards from the top, and those who manage to make the next round would come in at the bottom of the final results.
Hope that makes sense, brain not fully engaged...
Risk a lot and wear glasses
Thanks for that, I will try and get my head around it!
I was trying to work out what happened on Sunday, as I went into the DE ranked 64=, and got knocked out by the other 64= in the L128, and ended up 71 in the final rankings.
I supposed it all depends on what happened elswhere in the L128?
Everyone with a final rank of 65-70 will have finished better after the poules than you, but still lost in the 128.
Everyone below you did worse than you in the poules and lost in the same or earlier D.E. round.
All starting to make sense now, thanks chaps
If you were 64th after the poules and finished 71st then it means that 6 or 7 fencers ranked below you after the poule beat fencers ranked higher than you. They would then go into the last 64 and the places 65-70 would be taken by the losing fencers originally ranked 1-64
I have quickly worked out the NIF for all the events and they are as follows:
MF - 14*
ME - 44
MS - 73
WF - 59
WE - 70**
WS - 60
* 1/4 entry (56/4), as NIF on ranking is 9
** Based on October rankings as November's still aren't out
Hope these are useful
Sorry I should have been clearer, by 'quickly' I meant roughly as I just ran the post check-in reports through a bit of code. Will update for true NIF when I get a chance (although that might not be soon). I just wanted to give people rough levels. I doubt foil will move from the 1/4 entry though
Well here are the first of the 'correct' NIFs:
WF - 60
MF - 14 (still 1/4 entry)
ME - 40
and the rest
WE - 61
WS - 52
MS - 77
I think these are all correct but as I have just done them from the rankings there is probably a small error either way
