Spoilers for 27th July 2018.

Post by Tom S » Fri Jul 27, 2018 2:05 pm

Think Bob is the best bet we've seen for octochampdom so far I think. He has a good wordbank for a non-apterite and his numbers are solid enough. Nevertheless, despite the difference in maxes, Alex put up a good fight and left with a decent losing score. Though , Bob's mannerisms make him remind me of Mr Burns from the Simpsons, may be just me, but, as I stated, he has a good chance at making the finals.

Alternative for R6 if you want to use all the Numbers: (25 x 9) + 75 + 50 - (2 x 10)

But what about Lewis?

I can say 100% he won't become an octochamp.

I meant that at the time Lewis had a good chance of becoming an octochamp

Think my point has been slightly misunderstood- was stating that Bob is the best candidate I have seen so far based on ability to become an O-champ this series. Of course, getting to 8 shows put Lewis as having the best statistical chance of winning 8, but ability wise, he was not on a par with some octochamps.

For a non-apterite, his letters are eeeeeexxxxxcellent *taps fingers together*
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

I think Bob had actually improved since his first game, and his numbers are better than I first thought. So yes, he could be an octochamp. I didn't actually think Lewis was really octo potential, but anyone who can win one game could potentially win eight, by just stringing them together and not getting any tough opponents.

Agreed, but his opponent yesterday was still decent.
