Because it's adorable Rob thinks he has a chance of actually winning something:

If "P" is for "placements" then Rob can't have only one since he has two wins (you know, the same amount as you have?). Just sayin'.

It's funny, because you two were pretty quiet last year -- Rob was busy with his infuriating Kemco Khallenge, and you were busy not writing reviews -- but this year y'all are taking no prisoners.

Meanwhile, Joe, last year's titan by this chart and by volume, is having a quiet start to 2019.

I watered down my time last year with other stuff. This year, I want to write more because it's what I enjoy doing. This will probably mean less time on stuff like the Steam group and twitter, and I'm not overly certain anyone will even notice.

Nah, no one will notice those things, so keep the reviews coming instead.

Look at Emp, making his move! Can he prevent Joe from leading this thing from wire to wire? And I see Pickhut is having a solid year too.

I got off to a good start! And then I did something like 2 reviews in 4 months and that was kind of the end of that.

OD's jumped up a few places. Which is the one reason I was loathe to update.

Joe and Emp going at it tooth and nail in the main event!

Venter and OD in the co-main!

Big update after I remembered this was a thing due to POPULAR DEMAND!

Big changes:

Highest mover was OD who shot from 5th to 3rd. More remarkable was it looked like Pick was a lock with a big points advantage over chasers, Jason and Rob

Joe's mass output has seen him sore into an huge lead. Second place would have to really up their output to have even a glimmer of a shot, but that's me so that's not going to happen.

A little flurry of activity from Masters but him right in the mix for a while. THEN! A large stretch of inactivity has seen him slide back down again

That pesky Vacant is eating all your easy points. For shame, slackers.

Where the bloody hell did Will come from? And where's he bloody gone?

Looks like I have a decent chance to lead the site in MOST THIRD PLACE FINISHES. Which really puts the lie to me calling first place "Overdrive Place" in my topics.

Welp, the only compelling battle is between OD and Pick for third. That deathmatch could go down to the wire!

Meanwhile, Joe had first place locked up in March or whatever it was, and OctJOEber put to rest any lingering doubts. I suppose Emp could have made it interesting, but as the man says, he's far too lazy for that.

When quality is comparable, volume is king!

Joe wins this year by a HUGE margin. Sorry, Marc; your lazy year has cost you your crown.

NOTES:

  • Joe's win comes off the back of the fact that he has written significantly more reviews than anyone else. Who would have thought this would be such a strong factor aside from everyone?


  • Until the last few months, the top three bundle of Joe, EmP, Pick has been somewhat interchangeable, but no one else got close. Then OD when on a legit run of form, just about bursting into onto the podium more or less last minute


  • Spare a thought for Jason Venter, who looked comfortable in a high finish all year before both Masters and Mariner started winning weeks all over the show, both eventually doing enough to over take. Database work is important work for the site -- but it won't win you Site King


  • Vacant had a breakout year in 2019. But I hope he'll not mind if I hope to not see him so prominent in 2020


  • Congrats to King Joe.

    I'm pleased with how I finished the year. A couple months ago, I was basically the guy who got a lot of 3rds and rarely something else. And then I finished third in 1sts out of everyone. Because I think I got about 5 of my 7 over the final 2-3 months.

    tl;dr version: I STILL GOT IT!!!

    Congrats to Joe on the win. I know some might use the volume argument to explain away your victory (ie: 'look at how many reviews he subbed, of course he won'), but I see the volume as a second victory -- to write that much, and have it all be quality -- that ain't easy. Kudos.

    I'm glad I came back from the dead to sub 14 reviews. Not a ton, but I didn't write one until April, and was more or less burned out from last year and from life in general. So putting up some reviews and some points feels good in any case.

    Happy New Year, all. Let's see how next year goes! I understand that Joe is lightening his workload given his third child arriving shortly, so there will be a RotWer change, and an opportunity for someone else to step in and compete for Site King with him taking a step back. I'm interested to see who that might be!
