For the observant amongst you;  Pulper finished 6th in the league stage, but was unable to field a team for the knock-out.  He has graciously agreed that Hu Rhu will take his place in the final eight.

Ive got 13 place I wanted to wrestle from Khartoum2 :)

Congratulations to finalist.
Pity that compulsory round eliminated Pulper, but it was harsh one to be honest - to specific IMHO.
Said that good luck Hu Ru.

10th, I'll take that! I think I'm rather (read very!) fortunate to be in 10th and only a few points off the knockout zone though - but a good job I didn't sneak up there as there are plenty better than me who deserved it and I didn't have a team photographed anyway  lol

That middle of the field race though, very close!

I was happy with 9th and not having to field another team.  :D   but I was asked to make up the numbers for the knock out round.  A pity too since Pulpers painting deserved to be in the final 8.  :'(

One thing I noticed about the leader board is that the bonus rounds were the difference for being in the finals and not.  That is something that we might have to review next year.

The bonus rounds have always been one of the essentials of the LPL and are clearly defined within the rules. Yes, they are important if you would like to compete in the upper half. If for example Blashemia Blackwood would have got the 60 bonus points, he/she would now have reached the top three!

And that's my point.  Bonus points greatly alter the final results and some of the better painters lose out. 

As for the 'thats the way we always do things' line, things change. Take for example the elimination rounds this year.  Never been done before.  Also a few years ago the competition changed the way photographs were allowed to be composed. 

I am not saying that we should throw out bonus rounds entirely but the overall method of awarding points should reward better painters not the average painters, like me.  8)

When creating the LPL it has never been the Prof's ambition that the better painters should be rewarded more than the average ones. The opposite is true: everybody should have the chance to participate and everybody should have the chance to reach the top places. There are plenty of painting competitions around the internet where only first class painters would have a chance. So painting along the bonus theme rounds can indeed help the average painter to climb up the Leaderboard. There are other factors as well, of course.

Well I'm rooting for you, your entire output this season was exemplary and in my humble opinion you deserve the crown this year. I don't even have an idea for Round 9, so no hard feelings here if I get knocked out ;)

Well, win or lose we're all of us locked in for one more because there's a third-place play-off. No getting out of it now.  ;)

It's a mouth-watering prospect. Not just four brilliant painters, but four ace visual storytellers too. Good luck chaps :)
