October 22, 2009

The Halloween Aliens are in the game, gearing up for the Halloween Party on October Oct 31st 7 PM EST. We might continue the Halloween theme for a three week Halloween League if players are game.

Bill Wins Alphabet Aliens League Finals

July 28, 2009

It took only three games for Bill to win two first as Vulch, facing down the formidible Virus, Void, Vacuum trio and then as Oracle up against Reincarnator, Philanthropist and Pacifist. BigHeadZach, the dark horse contender, took the first win as Healer only to see Bill wrap up the next two contests. zxzxi who was the top seed and thus got to pick the first two combos was shut out as was Sleepy Weasel, winner of the 2005 Autumn Rumble and 2006 WInter Crunch Leagues.

Zxzxi Takes Top League Slot With 3 Wins

July 21, 2009

The last regular Alphabet Aliens League games were played last night with zxzxi having the best night seen in league for a long time. Zxzxi won the first three games, before dropping two. Some say it was letting him take the Blue seat that ended his winning streak, but he still took the top slot with 6 wins.

Bill made a walk-on for one game and won sliding to second place with a total of 5 wins.

Sleepy Weasel gets the third slot with a winning percentage of 31% on his 4 – 9 record. And BigHeadZach snuck  in with the lowest number of possible games (8) and a 2 – 6 record for a 25% winning percentage.

The W – Z alphabet combo was perhaps the weakest of the whole set, but the consensus was that over all the Alphabet produced a stunning set of combos.

FINALS

Finals will be the first player to win two games. FInal game date will be agreed upon by the four finalists with each finalist picking their top three alphabet combos.

Zxzxi will have his top two combos in the finals game. Each other player will get one of their picks. Peter (host) will resolve any duplicate picks.

We will have five Finals Alphabet Combos available (the maximum number of possible games to get a winner of two).

Week Seven as the League comes down the stretch

July 7, 2009

Bill clings to the top spot with Sleepy Weasel breathing down his neck. BigHeadZach tiptoes into a % slot joining Icaruslnx. Next week will be the last of the Alphabet Aliens. I will be away so we need a host. Then we will set up the Finals. A bunch of players can still break in. The required games is now boosted to 7. Virus took two out of three games. The VIR VUL VOI VAC combo (originally created by TheDukester and then hijacked into the ALphabet cal Aliens Category) had players clinging to their powers and staying out of alliances. Scare ships all around.

Cosmic Online Alphabetical Aliens League Week Six

June 30, 2009

Bill clings to the number one slot despite a “three mistake” loss in last night’s league. The week six combo of Sapient, Tripler, Sorcerer and Trader was classic, with the last game running for 46 minutes.

The current top six players shifted around with Subby getting bumped to the lower tier and zxzxi vaulting into second followed by Sleepy Weasel and Icaruslnx. Peter and AP are still qualified, but trailing the top four.

2004 Annual CE Champ and four time monthly winner, Barrok vowed to make his presence felt but showed some rust with a four loss night.

Next up Week 7: V Through V:

Vacuum, Virus, Void, Vulch

Alpha Aliens League Week 5 in The Record Books

June 23, 2009

And the big news is that Peter (your League Host) has broken out of the 0- 8 slump with 2 (count ’em) wins!

Once again the Alphabetical Aliens, O Through R:  Oracle, Pacifist, Philanthropist, Reincarnator did not disappoint! The games were rollicking with eight players duking it out in five games. And speaking of Duke, he showed up late and Peter offered him a his seat in the just started final game of the night. Duke won it as Reincarnator.

If you were betting that Oracle or Philanthropist would be the best alien YOU WON. They tied with two wins each. Reincarnator took home a win with Duke behind the curtain, and Pacifist was shut out for the night! Go figure.

Check out the updated stats below as we kick off the second half of the League, with weeks six, seven and eight to come.

We feature the current top 4 with the top two most wins and the next two best percentage with at least five games.

We are computing the number of games to qualify by taking an average of all the games played by players who have plaed at least two games.

Currently you need to play 5 games to be in contention. We are showing your games played and games needed. The way the standings are bunched up even a player who plays for the first time will have a decent chance of making the top four.

Next up Week 6: S Through T,  featuring  Sapient, Sorcerer, Trader, Tripler

League Note: We will play this League until all Alphabetical Aliens combos have been played.  Then we will chose five of the alphabetical Alien combos to be played in the finals. First player to win two games is the winner. I suggest a poll on Blogmic to chose the combos.
