There are two kinds of team. The relevant and the irrelevant. Relevant team = Ammagi Brilliant Park. The irrelevant teams can now go home but not me because I am NoRetreat.

I already hate you, Ookami Shoujo. I knew you would suck and disappoint me but I couldn't say no to those 9k PTW numbers because I'm WEAK :(. And it's not even bad enough that people want to talk about it, just kinda meh :/.

And to make things worse not only do tons of mid-tier shows (mainly the Trigger one being relevant) beat me, but also Garo getting double points as well as Motomete. With NeoAnkara managing to have both of them as well as the top 3 on his team, he's set for a super impressive start. My onle chance at redemption are Shigatsu and nanatsu who hopefully will out-score those other shows (except for Amagi and Parasyte) in the second half of the season. The only thing I'm certain about is that I'd rather have the Trigger anime on my team instead of Ookami Shoujo.

So yeah, while +57 and 11th for the week sounds good, it doesn't actually mean anything since Terra Formars is a dead weight from now on unless the uncensored version soon to come changes everything (which I doubt). So unless some of my other 3 shows can make it into the top 5 (aside from Grisaia/AmaBuri/Parasyte that is) it's going to go downhill from here on. I'm pretty sure Ookami Shoujo is already peaking, but the other two might have more room for growth and the question is just which of them is the better choice for weeks 3,4 & 5. Since Nanatsu has no simulcasts announced the signs point to Shigatsu for now and hoping that Nanatsu gets more hype until week 6 when I will be able to swap out Ookami Shoujo for Nanatsu (unless it's still behind at that point, but I doubt that).

tl;dr everything pretty much as expected, I'm just scared NeoAnkara might get too far ahead with his two doublepointers, which is not something I thought I'd see this season.


Well, Higashi said what I was going to say. I knew Terra Formars would become useless, but I assumed by Week 5, not Week 2. The one saving grace for Ookami might be favourites, but I think Shigestu and Nanatsu will do just as good, probably better in that category. I'll lose some simulcast points in Week 5, but I think I'll just swap Ookami out and hope that Nanatsu can continue to gain watchers/favourites and be the Haikyuu of this season.

Well two mistakes this time :

-Aced Amagi and Grisaia got higher ranked in my team, and by not much. Always end up screwing my aces by not much, just like I did in Spring season (Aced Mahouka and NGNL got it, aced NGNL and mahouka got it...).

-Swapped Sora no Method with Tinity Seven. Should obviously have gone with Kiseijuu but kind of forgot it was there on my bench. I'll do worse than Spring this time, huhue.

I should have been high on some kind of experimental drug when I made my team. I guess I'll just suck it, start to make the swaps and pray for a better spot next week.

It's funny how some people are so bad at this that they can't even get last place when they're aiming for it.


Right now, top place looks easier for someone aiming for it to take than last place does.

oh man. jhoanais got unique team bonus. Does he gain that every week?
And i saw people swapping out Terra Formars this week when they should have thought about it next week when the score is not high enough to best the one ones they have sitting on the bench.

Any one person can only get it once.

As to whether or not someone should have swapped it out this week or last (I assume that's what you mean), that depends - swapping it out in week 2 rather than week 3 means you can get your next swap in week 5 rather than week 6. If the amount lost from this week is less than the expected gain from week 5, it would have been worth swapping out sooner.

I did not know that. Now i see i am the one who made the wrong decision. I swapped Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso out for Kiseijuu thinking that i could get it back in my active team next week.

Rank 161 (+63)! I hope I can continue to rise up in the ranks. Now that I have used my swap, I'll have to wait till week 5. D:

Still feeling like an idiot for not using the ace on World Trigger last week.

Argh.... this is so upsetting. I thought I'd done a decent job of selecting my team (I think my 5 picks are at least top 15 individually), but messed up badly with my bench... Now I literally have nothing else to swap out with since the bench is actually doing worse than my starting 5...

Oh well, I have faith in my 5 selections, though with no ABP, Grisaia or Kiseijuu , I'll probably fall far behind everyone else....

Now we just gotta hope for Terra formars and Grisaia to do worse (which seems likely)

What would make you say that? Nothing is indicating Grisaias downfall at this moment, vierwship is still climbing and forum posts are strong again for Episode 2.

I was forced to switch it out because I had Parasyte on my bench, a lot of others had this problem too I guess, so considering Terra Formars will take a big nosedive next week, its not very smart to switch Parasyste in for something else, even if you lose out on some Points this Week.

Yup thats a given, depending on how everything turns out a placement in the 150-200 Range would be good (at least without those 3)

Whoops almost forgot to thank rodac too!(Totally overlooked your post) Thanks for the elaborate explanation :)
I don't have ABP but I do have Grisaia and Kiseijuu, still the middle of the pack? Or should I hope for something higher? :P

Went up 133 spots to place 55 this is the best i ever performed in FAL so i am pretty happy.
And my bench swap payed out well now i have to keep this spot which will probably be hard.
It's the first time i have a serious change of getting in the top 50

Went from 328 to 133. Not bad I guess. Looks like switching Donten ni Warau out was a good call.

Btw, how do I use my ace??

Send a PM to FALbot that mentions both 'ace' and the anime on your active team that you want to declare as your ace. You may send the PM at any time during the week up until the 19:00 UTC Sunday deadline.
