Roll call of the consistent Warriors
Every now and then we take a look at individual and team performance based on a longer period then just a single month.
This is one of those times, and here we have run some analysis spread across the four-month period of July running through to the end of October.
The monthly snapshot is a useful measure as it is regular. I know some players like to fix shorter-term targets to help them build an overall score.
However, we will all know from experience that we can have good month in a bounce back from a bad one.
There are also those who appear consistently in the monthly MVP reports but don’t hit the top spot because someone else has secured a higher return. Consistency, however, is the key.
Looking at performance over a slightly longer period can help identify these quiet consistent team performers who help keep us in our proud position as No 1 on Gameknot in overall team score.
This is partly why we run the end of year analysis across the full 12 months.
Work pressure has meant that I haven’t been able to look at the monthly analysis for the past couple of months. So I have used this as a good reason – or excuse - to catch up with a slightly longer-term view of individual performance.
The full list is at the end of this report and I have included those who maintained their overall team score during this period as well as those who just missed that mark with a minus 1 return.
Towards the top with a solid return of +10 across the four months were co-Captain earlkarjohn – Earl from Hook in Hampshire, England – and solidecho – Ben from Philadelphia in the US.
With a very creditable +11 points was meandyou_1, one of our few female team members from the US.
Just ahead of her with an excellent overall gain of +12 was our Greek team member cyrenaics – Takis from Athens – together with one of our team veterans fisherboy2 – Ross from Vancouver in Canada.
However, the top spot for the four months was shared by two Fighting Warriors and with it they share the overall MVP award.
vpartsch – Vincent from Sarasota in Florida, US – and betterthanyou – Mustafa from Virginia in the US – both completed the four months with a +13 return for the team.
This is excellent consistency so congratulations to them, and to all those who managed to forge ahead over this period.
So now trying not to leave anyone out, here is the full list of those who returned net positive scores during the four-month period July-October or who came very close to it:
