Before I reveal the winners, let's see how the fan favorites, The Ape and Mass Opinion, fared. The Mass Opinion managed to secure a solid 9th place spot, a slight improvement from last year's 11th place spot. Good job everyone!

The Ape placed at 15th, which is similarly a 2-spot improvement from its 15th place last year. Since I randomly generated its picks today, I've saved everything in a few pastebins after importing results from You can look at them here:
Matchup Predictions - There were 102 matches across the whole season not counting tiebreakers, so I flipped 102 coins. Heads/Observe was the top option in the forms/the left option in pairings with Tails/Reverse being the other option. Matches were in the order that they were listed on the pairings as well, starting with week 1 and ending with finals.
Team Standings - I used random list generator to pick the winning team, the playoff teams, and the last place team. Interestingly, The Ape got everything completely wrong. Too bad!
Player Standings - I used random list generator on the entire draft list and took the top player for best record. It was a longshot to get right, of course, but I did it anyways for completion's sake.

Next, let's get to the top 3. We had a tie for 3rd place between Akaru Kokuyo and Crunchman at 830 points despite both missing a week or two of predictions. In 2nd with 865 points is MADARAAAA who managed to get a strong position even with less pre-season points than the rest of top 4.

Just to build suspense, here's an honorable mention to Voltix for being the only person to correctly predict Lord Death Man to win the most games this season! Another honorable mention goes to the anonymous person who predicted finals using my own username. :changry:

Finally, txitxas wins the predictions competition with a score of 930! They had a few rough weeks early on, but made a strong push starting week 5 onwards and managed to score big enough from preseason to make a huge push to 1st place. Congrats!

Thanks again everyone for participating and for putting up with me being late a few weeks. See you next DPL!
