The Question Results, 2013-14 FINAL


Congrats to War Is the H-Word, who took The Question Season 2 Championship by narrowly holding off Season 1 champ Billie_Dawn. And ABC hater held on in a crowded multi-way race for the last spot on the podium. The prize, as always, is... huge bragging rights!!!!!

As for the last few games of the season, all I can say is that if you fared poorly, take some solace that you are very much not alone, and the summer season provides a clean slate for all. (Again, there should be in the general vicinity of a dozen games from yesterday through August.)

A huge thanks to all who participated, from the one-timers to the elite few who played all 62. I hope this is as fun and challenging an experience as it is from my end!

Previously: Pre-Premiere Week | thru 10/17 | thru fall 2013 | thru 1/15 | thru 2/2 | thru 2/28 | thru 3/19 | thru 4/24

Though pessimism reigned in the last three over/unders, there were still 35 Overs vs. 23 Unders for the full season (or 60% Over). This nearly cancelled out the Under bias from season one (39 Over vs. 54 Under), so maybe now we can settle at the roughly 50/50 breakdown that I strive for. The contestants chose Over 58% of the time (644 to 471), nearly matching the actual results.

Very pleased with joint 4th, got to aim for the podium next time.

Thanks for running this Spot, still my very favourite feature of the site (for the way it forces me to engage my brain)!

Spot said...

Yay, 3rd place even after some shitty midseason guesses! :)

Better luck during this Summer, I guess. Let's see. xD

Congrats to everyone involved, and thanks for keep this great game going, Spot! :D

Spot said...

I figure you'll answer this question next week, but are you planning accountability posts for stuff like BC/WC, The Q, and First 2 Weeks?

Spot said...

Those huge bragging rights!!!!! feel good, and I'm going to choose to deploy some of them now. Finally my internet name can be immortalised in The Question Index, alongside Season 1 champion Billie_Dawn and Summer champion Igwell Predicts.

Thanks for running it Spot, and everyone for playing.

Spot said...

Yep.

Spot said...

What a terrible record I finished.


Guess I should be more optmistic, picking lots of unders does not work.

Spot said...

A shame I abandoned my pessimism at precisely the wrong time. But considering I went 60% Under and it finished 60% Over, batting .500 is respectable. :)

Love 'The Question'! Great work, spot!
