didn’t the goblet of fire cover this
because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch
actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?
Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.
And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.
We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.
With comments too great not to include. You should check the heck out of that webcomic series either way 8D
The comments on this are every bit as fabulous as the actual comic :D
This would be a lot easier than having to figure it out yourself
The Gamecube was a low-point for Nintendo - financially, at least. It was their poorest-selling home console to date (assuming you’re not including the Virtual Boy, because you’re a reasonable human being) and it came out at a time where the Playstation 2 was setting all kinds of records, finally providing itself to be Nintendo’s greatest challenge yet.
Despite this underdog status (or maybe because of it), the Gamecube’s game library ended up being pretty fantastic - Nintendo offered their developers a lot of creative freedom in the hopes of striking a chord with gamers, and it shows. The weirdest main Mario game for a console, a renaissance for Metroid, a game starring Luigi, a new franchise about enslaved bug-creatures, and (arguably) series best entries for Smash Bros. and Mario Kart.
But which one is the best? It’s up to you - get voting!
Vote and we’ll send you Smash Bros. Demo codes!
JK, you guys. Totally JK.
