I was wondering, has anyone ever done a study to see where the Most Popular Lineup would finish a season in relation to everyone else, as in would they be top 500, top 1000?

    When I get a chance to get back to my laptop, I can tell you the raw score for each season had you played Most Popular in a few minutes. Figuring out how that would rank will take some crowdsourcing as that data isn't available in the FML API. I'll post the scores later tonight PDT.

    I ran the numbers quick on the Summer season.
    Playing the most popular cineplex would have netted you $1,422,205,103, which would have probably finished somewhere in the mid-600s.

    I finished with just over 1.420 Bil in 672nd place.

    OK, so if you played Most Popular every week, here's what your season score would be for each of the 5 concluded seasons:


    • Summer '15: $1,979,184.272
    • Fall '15: $1,105,260,808
    • Awards '15: $1,180,473,233
    • Spring '16: $1,088,940,048
    • Summer '16: $1,422,205,103

    From my two accounts, I can give you some range but if you can get closer than I can please add data below and I'll write it up for my article next week:


    • Summer '15: Better than 2923rd
    • Fall '15: Worse than 100th
    • Awards '15: Between 143rd and 439th
    • Spring '16: Worse than 366th
    • Summer '16: Better than 1439th

    I think we can get more precise than that, as a group. Thanks in advance!

    Hey, is there any way I can access FML API?

    @Ari - Thanks for those. For API access, gotta ask FMLQA. They offered me it when the UI changed since I was previously doing so much screen scraping. Gotta know JSON to make sense of it though.

    Summer 15- Better than 809th
    Spring 16- Better Than 1081st
    Summer 16- Better than 1161st


    Only 3 that I have that will help you narrow it down more.
