Season 107 - WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION !!!

The last couple of seasons have been easy. Season 107 was certainly not difficult, but with an average difficulty of 52 I would say that the season as a whole was pretty close to being perfectly balanced. The two most difficult questions came on day 14 (Baseball) and 12 (Internet Services) with difficulties of 9 and 27 respectively. 

When looking at your ratings you were very happy with the questions – 4.1 out of 5 stars. Your least favorite question came on Day 9 (The Michelin Man – rating 3.4) and your favorite question fell on Day 11 (The Yellow Sea – rating 4.8). I would like to thank Dorian Willems for this excellent set of questions and for inviting so many new Belgian players to Quizzypedia. I hope you will all stick around.

An easy season always means there is a high chance that the winner must be found through a tie-break. And with six players on 13 points on day 13, that surely looked to be the case again. That was until the topic was revealed to be Baseball. As the day progressed I saw the top players strike out one by one. But that was until Jens Andersen stepped up to the plate and hammered be ball out of the park. Since no one was able to follow suit, Jens is the only player with a perfect season. Therefore he is our champion for the second time in a row – quite remarkable, really. This is Jens’ fourth championship – please give him a big round of applause!

What name, with some biblical origins, did those translation applications have in common?
