Very nice!

WEEK 9 RECAP:

This time last year, SITE KING showed a very different set of standings. Early year blitzes from Pickhut and Jerec in particular had them both grasp high positions (Pickhut would remain in the top two for the majority of the year before slipping out near the end; Jerec was sabotaged with a RotW judge spot that destroyed his output for the rest of the 2017 season). The rest of the chasing pack was comprised of EmP, Overdrive, Jason, Nightfire and Joe. At this point of last season, Masters had yet to review a game in several years, leaving Nightfire as Canada’s only hope.

He’s certainly found his feet again. After a slow January, Masters dominated the February submission queue, often offering multiple reviews for weeks and competing hard for top honours. He’s currently held off the top of the league by a stubborn Joe, who boasts the highest number of RotW placements so far, but has recently found himself on the injured list. Could this be a secret boon while he quietly games away, building up a reserve of things to write about?

Defending champion EmP rides high in the table, but his position is not without some early controversy due to notorious EmP-snubber OD. Forcing a review carry over has had serious impact on two weeks’ worth of standings including, in a bitter twist of irony, potentially knocking his own reviews out of a possible top three finish in the most recent week. These lack of points will especially hurt the veteran campaigner, who is off to an uncharacteristically slow start to the new season. Likewise for fellow vets Pickhut and Jason who would expect their early-season standings to be better.

Many assume this is an early blip that will soon be righted, but the shock re-emergence of several old faces such as Fiddlesticks, DE, Will and ex-judge Jerec may force them into a tougher season than they might have expected. Already, new opponents like Freeman have staked their place in the league; maybe a surprise rookie victory is on the cards? Or, as the never-ending Masters comeback tour has proven, there’s always room for retirements to be broken and old strangleholds re-established.

I've been wrestling with a Mass Effect Andromeda review for a while now. My last great idea was parodying that "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE" youtube video, but I don't think I can make that work.

I'm still playing Breath of the Wild and Ys VIII, but not ready to review either one.

Little over the halfway mark -- Marc's been sitting top pretty much the entire time, taking over from an early Joe lead.

Whoa, not anymore -- looks like Joe's set to run away with this thing.

Feels good to be *on* there, at least. And I read somewhere that some who are last shall be first.

The endgame is in sight. Surely a two-man race between Misters Masters and Joe. And with one of them falling off the pace and the other in the part of the year they usually thrive, the hastily-edited MSPaint crown could go anywhere...

Well, it's nearly a wrap for me. I just wanted to get my last two 'commissioned' projects done (they are now), and then the three letters I have left for the Alphamarathon out of the way -- those three are the only remaining reviews I feel obligated to do. I'm in active recovery before outright vacation.

I peaked too early. Won RotW in the first week of the year, nothing submitted since.

Wherein Jerec subtly gloats about his 100% win record.

Joe takes the lead into the home straight. Will Masters shake off his winter slumber in time to challenge? Or will people continue to forget his reviews until it's too late? Time will tell!
