Intuitive Faeries is looking like one of the toughest and most competitive platinum leagues:
There are lots of big names in the group, including 2nd place and 7th place on the all time traders leaderboard (1st and 5th if you don't include bots).
Only five can be promoted to the Diamond League at the end of the month though. Who will it be?
The 24 runners and riders are:
@SimonGrayson @MarcusAbramovitch @firstuserhere @levifinkelstein @PatMyron @Heliscone @vincentpearce @Fedor @BrendanFinan @JosephNoonan @A @eclair4151 @Stralor @toms @Lorenzo @JohnSmithb9be @Tyler31 @GeorgeVii @tornado @Thekla @cloe @Predictor @JulianM @NikitaSkovoroda
The market will be resolved as a 5 way 20% each tie between top five from the league who are promoted to Diamond.
This market is just for fun so market manipulation, insider trading and attempts to mask gains and losses by members of the league are allowed and encouraged!
@SimonGrayson you were so close, a shame really you didnt make top 5
@firstuserhere Such a shame, you put up a good fight
this is what the fina leaderboard looks like to me
I believe that is the true final as that is what I also see (and not changing).
@SirCryptomind yeah but wanted to ss because some people are saying that it's still jumping around for them
looking forward to a quiet(er) season two with the faeries. who knows what all those new plats coming in flush with money from winning gold will do though!
It ended I believe
This is when the countdown timer went away.
@SirCryptomind Yep - these seem to be the final rankigs!
I'll wait until there's some kind of full confirmation before resolving the market.
@SirCryptomind I refreshed the page and levina jumped up again. I think things are a little broken
@bingeworthy Crazy... We're still moving around after the rankings have supposedly closed?
@bingeworthy probably locked in earlier than we thought and the servers went screwy
Ah yea, I see the timestamp, that would mean it was still moving for like 10 minutes, so that would make sense if that is indeed the final.
@SirCryptomind Markets been moving aaaalll day
since this is a pari-mutuel market, it prob should close early 😅 (I say as someone who now can respond to twelve hours of shuffling, cutting out others' profits)
@Stralor Levina really tanked down almost to demotion to Gold, wowzers!
@SirCryptomind aaand Levi is back
@Stralor Absolute scenes...
@levifinkelstein - was that a glitch or is there a market which your promotion hopes are riding on?
🤣 Ahh Market Manipulation
@Stralor Ah... I'm slightly disappointed it's not a more interesting market!
On the point of closing early... Since this is meant to be a bit of a fun/silly market (as mentioned in the original description) my instinct would have been to leave it open. But I'm happy to close it early if people would prefer to treat the profit element of it a bit more seriously! I could put up a poll?
@SimonGrayson buying myself up to 30%. I will lose some but i think it will make the market more interesting xD
If only the random timer had been a bit quicker… I don’t fancy my chances of making it from here!
At least I’ll get a decent prize for sixth place and I’ll get a league full of fellow non-promoted competitors next season…
And now we play the waiting game to see exactly when our scores will be frozen in place...
Will it be a long wait?
The Levina/Nikita battle is very close.
@Fedor Yes - Levi's sitting on some pretty volatile markets so I think the result there might come down to when exactly the league is frozen...
@firstuserhere Levi flipped to the lad again, it keeps coming back and forth
I thought that the “AI letter” market wouldn’t rock our league because it’s delisted…
It turns out a lot of people had shares in the listed mirrors!
This has thrown a huge cat among the pigeons... It sends @MarcusAbramovitch from the relegation zone to an enormous lead in first place and it leaves @levifinkelstein fighting for promotion!
@SimonGrayson Yeah, this will make it tough to hold on to the diamond promotion
@Fedor Well that just happened. I made out okay but Levina jumped like ten spaces.
I'm currently last in the league and first in this market, lol
@firstuserhere we're so back
@firstuserhere and even the bot tag's gone!
I've now got a bot tag on my account, but don't read much into it - it's just temporary because I plan to automate some basic trading while i have less time to do manifold over the next few weeks
@firstuserhere I'll remind you that:

Yeah, will try to generate a bots cohort each season with all the active bots! They would need the bot badge to be considered, so can submit PRs to get bot badges for them
So if you're still a "bot" by the end of May, you might be transferred to the Bot cohort, Catnee is already there btw, So you'll have good company.
But that's a very sneaky way to stay Platinum ngl 😄
