About M.E. myself and I

My photo
Eastbourne, East Sussex, United Kingdom
I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group D Match 3

(4) Jackie Brown def. (17) Erbito Salavarria by Unanimous Decision

The fourth seed advanced out of his group without much trouble in either match, but was taken the distance by the man from the Philippines who is now eliminated. Salavarria did not go without a fight however as he busted open Brown on two occasions: forehead in round three, and left eye in the ninth.

It was very nearly two knockouts in two matches for the Lancashireman as he had his man down and very dazed in the fourth round. A brutal flurry of blows ensued , but Salavarria was able to stay upright for the remainder of the match despite a pair of vicious shots in the fifth and seventh rounds.

Brown would would have been forgiven if he was a little off his game after a slip to the mat in the opening round, but he would drop only three rounds (sixth, eighth, tenth) to earn a bye into the quarterfinals.

Punches Landed/Attempted - Brown 65/115 (56.52%), Salavarria 49/96 (51.04)
Total Points (at the end of the last completed round) - Brown 224, Salavarria 164

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group C Match 3

(15) Chartchai Chionoi def. (3) Peter Kane by knockout in the fifth round

After three rounds won on judges decision, Kane hit the deck on two occasions during the fourth round. He was put out of his misery on Chinoi's first punch in the fifth round after the Liverpudlian looked to be in control again. Both men advance to the next stage, with Kane qualifying through the slimmest of margins: his split decision victory over Pascual Perez earlier in the competition.

After the contest an interview with the Thai boxer revealed that he saw that his opponent was leaving himself open so went out in the fourth round looking for a knockout.  Both men will fight in the next round of the tournament, as Chionoi just misses out on getting a bye.

Punches Landed/Attempted - Chionoi 25/34 (73.52%), Kane 23/48 (47.91%)

CW 1904/05 (S13), Game 1: South Australia vs Victoria

South Australia 10/12 vs Victoria 10/11
Adelaide Oval
12th, 14th-16th November 1904

Lineups:
South Australia- DRA Gehra, FT Hack, C Hill, CB Jennings, J Darling, N Claxton, JH Pellew, PM Newland, JPF Travers, PH Coombe, HW Short

Victoria- PA McAlister, GHS Trott, JH Stuckey, WW Armstrong, FJ Laver, CE McLeod, WJ Scott, VS Ranford, FB Collins, HL Wright, JV Saunders

First Innings
South Australia stumbled out of the blocks as they failed to survive the first day's play. No-one was able to get a good tally up on the board against an impressive set of bowlers.

SA 224
DRA Gehrs 38
FJ Laver 4-55; FB Collins 4-61

Victoria also struggled through a sluggish start, but after the fourth wicket came with eighty-three runs scored, business picked up for the visiting side. Partnerships of ninety and 148 helped take them into a very positive position.

SA 224
VIC 413
WJ Scott 115; VS Ranford 63; FJ Laver 60
JPF Travers 4-83; N Claxton 3-99

Second Innings
Things were finally looking up for South Australia as they passed the 200-mark with over half their wickets remaining, but an all too sudden collapse gave Victoria an easy way to finish the match. After the fifth wicket walked, the second half of the order managed another nineteen runs, with four ducks.

SA 224 + 234
VIC 413
DRA Gehrs 88; J Darling 67
JV Saunders 3-77; FB Collins 3-77

The opening partnership crumbled very early on, but it was always going to be plain sailing for Victoria to win the opening game of the season.

SA 224 + 234
VIC 413 + 46-2
WW Armstong 22*; JH Stuckey 17*
N Claxton 1-21

Victoria wins by eight wickets

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group B Match 3

(2) Santos Benigno Laciar def. (14) Miguel Canto by Unanimous Decision

Baring a disqualification, Canto had already booked his place into the next round of the tournament, but did not hold back on his opponent who was trying to guarantee his place as well. A warning in the third round for elbowing woke Canto up a little bit, but Laciar kept the pressure on throughout the match, winning eight of the twelve rounds.

The Mexican had a storming tenth round, coming close on three occasions to putting the Argentine on the matn while Laciar rocked Canto in both the first and final rounds. Both men were cut open in the mouth, and Laciar also picked up a broken nose in the sixth. Overall, a good contest that could have gone either way, and books both men out of the group stage.

Punches Landed/Attempted - Laciar 57/113 (50.44%), Canto 50/101 (49.50%)
Total Points (at the end of the last completed round) - Laciar 198, Canto 175

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group A Match 3

(18) Venice Borkhorsor def. (9) Benny Lynch by knockout in the tenth round

Another surprise result in Group A as the lowest ranked boxer in the tournament lays out his opponent, not once, but twice. The first knockdown came in the seventh, and Lynch looked rather fragile after that. He nearly went down early in the tenth, before finally getting caught again before the bell to end the match.

The higher seeded man from L.A was keeping it even throughout, and employed a lot of counter-punching and stick and move strategies. There was limited movement through much of the fight, but a crucial move by the Thai fighter got Lynch into the corner to take him out and get a bye in the first knockout stage of the competition. Lynch heads home with two defeats.

Punches Landed/Attempted -  Borkhorsor 40/77 (51.94%), Lynch 46/97 (47.42%)
Total Points (at the end of the last completed round) - Borkhorsor 126, Lynch 166

CW A Look Ahead to the 1904/05 (S13) Season

New South Wales 14/14 (last year 18/13)

Favourites yet again, but things could be more difficult this season. With all teams looking well balanced for the coming year, New South Wales have extra quality that could see them as champions for a sixth straight season.

South Australia 10/12 (10/9 last season)

A more dangerous bowling attack gives South Australia a fighting chance for the first time in years. The batting may be what lets them down however.

Victoria 10/11 (10/13 last year)

Right behind the South Australians is another side that cannot seem to improve upon it's batting again.

DICE Golf - Turnberry

For this difficult Scottish course, the eight highest golfers that are included with the demo have a -9 to deal with when rolling for shots to land on the fairway or green. There are three kinds of shots on each player card: A, B, and C.

The A shots are for four and five par holes for the fairway.Most of the time it all starts here
The B shots are for when they aim to land on the green. Par three holes begin here.
The C shots are for  when you miss the green on a B shot, but there are no modifiers on C shots.
After this, of course, comes the putting

DICE Golf Demo

Yes, another game from gen1400, and again it's a fun one.

As with DICE Boxing each individual has their own card. With DICE Golf you get all golfers from the 2008 season, but it is possible to make cards for golfers from other years yourself. Two d10s are rolled for each golfer, on each hole, to see hoe they do on their putting, tee, and fairway shots. They may end up in light or heavy rough, a bunker, or even lose the ball altogether. On a tricky lie the dice roll becomes tougher to make the next shot.

There were two courses with the demo: Kapalua and Turnberry. There are many courses in the full game, and, again, you can use other real world courses and bring them into the game. You can play these courses straight, or you can use the difficulty modifiers for the golfers. On Turnberry for example, each golfer has a -9 on a lot of his/her shots. Not surprisingly, this is fourth toughest course in the game.

I split up the sixteen golfers provided with the demo into two groups: lower and higher ranked. The higher ranked men went to Turnberry, while the rest took on Kapalua. The latter is one I will be sharing here. I played it without modifiers.

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group F Match 2

(11) Hiroyuki Ebihara def (6) Jackie Paterson

The tightest group of the tournament lived up to it's expectation as the lowest seeded fighter in Group F was all over his opponent from the opening round. There were few real power shots that left the crowd wondering if someone would go down, but the Japanese boxer made one count in the tenth and a very dazed Paterson could only hold on for dear life as he was pummeled for the remainder of the round.

There was no need for Ebihara to resort to dirty tricks, especially after cutting Paterson's forehead in the second round, but the referee finally had enough of his antics as early as the fourth round, but that was the only round of the first eight that the judges couldn't give to him. Paterson would take the ninth on his own merit, but the knockdown really put end to any hopes of a sudden comeback. He will have to really step up his game if he is going to go through.

Punches Landed/Attempted - Ebihara 74/154 (48.05%), Paterson 25/54 (46.29%)
Total Points (at the end of the last completed round) - Ebihara 278, Paterson 100

DICE Boxing: ATG Tournament (Flyweight) - Group E Match 2

(8) Jimmy Wilde def. (12) Newsboy Brown

Aside from a blip in the fourth that saw Wilde hit the deck, it was plain sailing for the Welshman, and the win puts him into a great position for qualification to the knockout stages. Both men had the other wobbling in the first two rounds with Wilde in full control of the opening three rounds.

In round four it was Brown looking like he could make a real go of this, but Wilde put his head down took another four straight rounds with ease. A late warning in the final round would not affect the outcome, leaving the man from Los Angeles the unenviable task of needing a win against the highest seed in the group, Betulio Gonzalez.

Punches Landed/Attempted - Wilde 63/135 (46.66%), Brown 36/39 (52:17%)
Total Points (at the end of the last completed round) - Wilde 244, Brown 130
