2012 Australian Continentals Dream Team

by Matthyas Kiraly, Dream Team Enthusiast

3rd June 2012

It's that time of the year again. The 2012 AC Dream Team is back!

This is your chance to choose your fantasy team of players and put yourself in the running for not only bragging rights, but a cool stash of mystery prizes to boot.


How to Play
1. You pick a team of up to five players with a total value of 100 or less. You may also select up to one player not listed.
2. Post your team in the official thread.

Playing is really simple, and the game is open to everyone. You don't need to be an expert on Australian players, but a little research does go a long way.

You may make changes to your team (please use the forum's function at the top-right corner of your entry) up until the closing date.

Like last year, a player's Dream Team (DT) points per tournament will be a cumulative total of each player's average performance (victory points divided by the number of rounds) at each tournament he or she participates in over the weekend. That means players participating in more tournaments over the five days will score more DT points overall than those only participating in a few tournaments.

Closing Date
Please have your entries posted by 11:59pm (in your timezone) on Tuesday the 26th of June 2012. No new entries or edits to existing entries will be allowed after 5pm (AEST/Sydney time/GMT+10) on Wednesday the 27th of June 2012, at which time all entries will be considered "locked". Any new entries or edits made after the closing date will not be eligible to participate.

Player Values
The following table represents the values calcultated for the projected top DT players at this year's AC.

Can't be bothered doing any research? Not to worry! I have included each listed player's 2011 score, which formed part of the calculation of each player's values for this year. I also have included info on each player's movement in value over their 2011 value.

Note that unlisted players have a value of 5.

1. "" and GREEN text indicates rise in value, "" and RED text indicates fall in value; "", indicates value remained steady.
2. Values calculated on a rolling 3-event score average, factoring average values in each respective event to smooth value movement from pre-2011 value calculations.
