Help me CAPS... You're my only hope.



August 14, 2013 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: BOOM , IPGP , WDFC

Ok people... I'm back.  I've was gone for about 4-5 years, but I have returned.  Because of a series of various unmentionable badnesses and one terrible awefulness... I had to leave my favorite website/pastime behind.  I've missed you guys every day since. 

The point, however, is that I left my CAPS portfolio to rot, without even a cursory check of what should and shouldn't stay.  I think if I would have ended just a few of the obviously bad picks I had, my score wouldn't have plummeted so badly. 

But I didn't... so, unfortunately, I went from a high 90s All Star to a lame 59 pointer.  But I intend to rebound and recapture some of my former glory.  Also, according to my charms, I was a "most helful pitcher", a "score leader",. and my favorite... I was "popular" - whatever that means.  Thats all well and good... but I want that All-Star rating back.  That the goal.  So my question to you is... do I just start over with a new name?  or do I try to make it back up with this ruined account... which is currently at about 59.  I don't want a blue hat... or even a green hat... I want a multi-colored hat... or at the very least, a two-toned hat.  

So... my goal is clear... to get back above 95, into the 96-100 territory.  I made it there before and I can do it again. 

The only question I have for you guys is... should I start over completely with a new name, start from 0 and try to build up... or should I hold on to this name and try to make it from 59 to 99?  I'm sure there are some mathmagicians out there who can come up with reasonable answer.  Lets do it.

I think it will be slightly faster if you start from scratch. 57% accuracy on your legacy picks will help you get to allstar rank (80+), but will probably hold you back on getting to high 90s. Good luck!

While you were gone we discovered that scores can be manipulated and ratings are meaningless. Sorry.

If you gave me anticipated scores and accuracy, calculus could solve your dilimma

It'll go faster with a new account. Your score is actually negative right now, and the 58% accuracy will only hold you back. You'll probably need at least 70% accuracy to crack the high 90s.

Oh and you should cheat the system to manipulate your score.
