Two big relegation battles were fought in the past couple of days.

 

DR_ELL_SuPREME managed to defeat Luckypapa to condemn the Dutchman to relegation from Cleopatra, whilst gpet0's victory over KARAISKAKIS consigned his countryman to the drop from Apex.

 

The final game of the competition - Enigma v gpet0 - is set for tomorrow evening after which the Final Tables will be published.

The Printing Presses at the Pharoah are up and running again as we look forward to the Pyramid League 2018. Rumours abound that the ink used to print the Pharoah contains Cleopatra's saliva, though this has yet to be authenticated. Others say it is made from the sweat of a hundred spies.

With one place remaining in Apex, Great Manos has a chance to take a spot as he battles playa1 in the Champions League semi-final this weekend.

Should Great Manos find only Great disappointment, then the Apex play-off will be contested by texaspete09 and gkaros, after mrbrainiac was unable to accept his position this year.

Gkaros currently has a full inbox, so TC are eager for him to contact them.

If you are thinking of travelling to the Pyramid this year, make sure to register and join the 35 warriors who have signed up so far.

We can also exclusively reveal that the Pyramid Lottery will be returning to offer players the chance to win £100 of cash money.

Pyramid Preview

Spotlight on....

Khufu

Khufu was an ancient Egyptian monarch who ruled during the Fourth Dynasty (26th century BC) and is generally accepted as having commissioned the Great Pyramid of Giza.

This year's 12 members of Khufu have just as good a chance as going down in history. 

This year's crop of Apex hopefuls are made up of only 3 nations. 3 from the US (Wogomite, Fks, constrictor), 1 from Lithuania (LAZZLO) and the remaining 8 from the Stratego stronghold of Greece (macedoniagr, cflag, Major Nelson, IOLAUS1926, Geo_Tsarpista, Great Manos, hellinon and gmits)

Only 5 of these players took part in Core last year, so it is a new experience for the majority.

Local bookmakers have installed Major Nelson as the favourite for the Khufu Title. In fact, he is the players choice as 14/19 Pyramid Lottery punters selected him as their winner. It is easy to see why as Major Nelson has rapidly risen through the ranks in recent times

There are others who will mount a challenge. constrictor is the second favourite - gathering 3 votes in the Pyramid Lottery and who also boasts an account ranked far higher than any other participant in the division not far off 1200 ELO.

Two other players also gained one vote as winners in the Pyramid Lottery. Fks - who has also improved at an impressive pace in the past 6 months, and Kentinator - who isn't even playing. The somewhat unorthodox mind games have begun courtesy of Wogomite - who can also do some damage in the division - a player who finished in the Top 15 of the World Cup last year in his first competitive live tournament.

Khufu welcomes the long awaited return of ex-TC member cflag - An extremely nice guy and one not to be underestimated on the battlefield.

Another player who has seemed to slip through the side door unnoticed is Great Manos. This account actually tops the list for most ELO points gained between Feb 2017 and May 2018, and recent tournament finishes have reciprocated this improvement.

macedoniagr, a product of the SERRES Team, is another player who has kept a low profile and quietly come up with some great results in recent times. IOLAUS1926 and Geo_Tsarpista - their club teammates, have also shown the potential to cause Khufu players some serious issues 

In LAZZLO and gmits we have two players who survived Core unscathed last year and will be hoping to apply that experience. It is after all, a marathon not a sprint, and players who take the later games as seriously as the openers tend to prosper.

hellinon has not been long on the online tournament scene, but has already had impressive performances - including victory over Major Nelson in the Winter Tournament.

Khufu is set to be a tightly contested affair.

People's Choice (Winner): Major Nelson

People's Choice (Challenger): constrictor

Players Choice (Runner-Up):  Fks
Dark Horse: Great Manos
Player to watch: cflag
Wildcard: macedoniagr

Underrated: Wogomite

Pyramid Preview

Spotlight on....

Apex

OVERLORD returns to tournament action to attempt to retain the Pyramid Title following his victory in the inaugural championship last year. According to the players of the lottery, OVERLORD is favourite for the title - with 10 of 19 selecting him as their Apex winner.

The rest of the selections indicate that Apex is set to be a three horse race. Hielco was selected as winner only 4 times - which given his history of tournament victories is perhaps a little surprising - followed by playa1 with 3 selections. I wonder whether the OVERLORD backers would have changed their mind with the benefit of hindsight - after Hielco defeated OVERLORD to take an early advantage in the division.

One thing is for sure - it is going to be close at the top. With a division of 13 players it is likely that the champion may have to win 11 games to claim the title.

The so-called big 3 (with Nortrom sitting out this year), attracted 35 of the 37 votes between them in the Lottery. There were also winning votes (one apiece) for Enigma (playing in his customary annual tournament) and Unladen Swallow (who ran away with Alexandria last year) to take the crown. And if you're wondering how there are 37 votes when it should be an even number - the Pharoah has been informed by lottery statisticians that 'self-votes' were excluded in those numbers.

We're only in the second year of the Pyramid - so I'm not sure whether this next stat is unusual - but 8 of the 13 players in Apex are playing there for the first time. (Aside from the big 3, Enigma and Grizzlybear played and retained their places last year).

The Greek contingent joining OVERLORD is Nikos1972, roeczak and Henry domerkant. Netherlands, not to be outdone, also has 4 representatives - with hello124 and Moghedien joining Hielco and playa1. The third most represented country is USA, where texaspete09 (runner up of Cleopatra last year) joins Enigma.

With one compatriot apiece, Switzerland (Napoleon1er), UK (Unladen Swallow) and Germany (Grizzlybear) are all represented, making Apex the most multinational division this year.

With only the top 7 guaranteed to avoid relegation, this division is set to be tight. Players challenging for 4th could find themselves battling for relegation in the blink of an eye or the loss of a sargeant.

People's Choice (Winner): OVERLORD
People's Choice (Challenger): Hielco
Players Choice (3rd Horse): playa1
Dark Horse: Enigma
Long shot: Unladen Swallow
Wildcard: Henry domerkant
