Spoilers for Monday 7th January 2019 (COC XV, game 4)

Post by Thomas Carey » Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:45 am

It's time for everyone's least favourite socially inept little boffin to return to the screens - and I'm not talking about Stephen Read. Watch me take on the champion, only COC representative and complete dominator of series 76.

Predictions - 53% of you bastards thought Stephen would win, with an average point margin of just 2.76 in his favour. Can we actually make it that close or will I bottle it again? Let's find out together.
cheers maus

I may have thought Stephen would win. But I've had reason to change my mind.

GAIATRIS was an amazing spot.

Fair enough, the lad done good. Better player won.

I chickened SIGNORIA, but that wouldn't have changed anything. The important thing is that we both got all the numbers games, so mathematics as a profession remains alive and well.

Really strong game. Commiserations to Stephen but congratulations to Tom on a stunning show. Best game we have seen so far in the tournament though if tomorrow's game lives up to expectation, then I think this game may be trumped!

Well I hoped this was going to be a fun game and you betcha! Both contestants played well beyond expectations! Excellent spot from both, in particular NOWHAT from Stephen and GAIATRIS from Thomas! Excellent on grabbing all 40 Points in the Numbers as well!

With Stephen taking a tumble with the invalid words it almost looked like Thomas was going to win easily until the former came back with PIPEMAN to force the crucial. However, Thomas was the faster guy and took the day with a favourite Chemistry word of mine.

Commiserations Stephen, you were the only Series 76 contestant here after Moose Rosser (For those that are new or can't remember, he's the Runner-up of that Series) reportedly turned down the offer to be there and with that it's the end of the road. :( Tbf, you did mention in the daily chat at the time of filming Thomas was way better in the Apterous Rankings than you so just by that statement alone we all probably knew what was going to happen. Nevertheless, you did play to your best of your ability and that's what more important. Thank you for hosting the Daily Chat on Apterous and I hope you'll continue doing that for many years to come! :) As for Thomas, congratulations, so now we know half the line-up in the Quarter-Finals already. This also means all Series 73 players here have survived, an incredible feat!

Come tomorrow, it's the much-anticipated, ultimate battle and perhaps, the most controversial draw in this whole Championship. Two Series Champions battle out against each other and they're strong, extremely strong. However, one must go, but which one? You surely cannot miss this match! Majority of you voted in the poll here either of them will be crowned Champion, sadly someone has to be eliminated...

That was a fun game to watch. Bad luck Stephen but well done to tom. After seeing some of your games I actually feared for Stephen.

Fabulous game from both - really countdown at its best. NOWHAT and GAIATRIS were particularly impressive spots (anyone for a "best COC spots" thread?)
Both of you are great sports and create an enjoyable atmosphere - can see this COC really being one to remember!
