Are you bummed about your first-match-exit in the March Madness 2023 (a.k.a the annual Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament)? Me too!
Let’s see who can keep up the losing!
This tournament is for all of the first-match losers. The goal is to keep losing.
The default will be for you to participate with all of your throws made automatically by the moderator’s Excel =RAND() fn.
If you’d like, you may also submit your own throws (for the entire tournament all at once) or specify how rand() should be weighted for you or any other Excel tricks you’ve got up your sleeve. Just send them to me via pm.
Play will start as soon as every MM23 participant has had a chance to join this tournament, so it might be a while yet.
I’m not just the moderator, I’m also a participant. You can rest easy knowing that the moderator won’t pull any sneaky monkey moves, tricky hijinks, or deceitful chicanery when it comes to picking the losers.
All matchups, including the finale, will be sudden death (best of one).
There are going to be two champions:
- The RPS Biggest Loser will be the player that loses all of their matches in the first iteration of the throws.
- The RPS Ultimate Loser will be the player that loses the most tournament brackets in 2^n iterations of throws (where n is the number of participants).
- The seeding will be based on the number games each participant won in their first match in March Madness 2023, and random after that.
As a reminder, the goal is to keep losing.
Welcome to all of our participants, and we wish you the worst of luck.
Here are the players that I’ve identified (If you prefer, you may bow out and not participate at all. Just send me a pm or carrier pigeon with that message.)
