THE PLAYERS is highlighted yellow because it's our first Tier 2 event. In addition to your normal 2 matchups, you'll get 2 more against the owners above and below you in your conference standings (4 total). @Berg Ryman and I will work to get these added soon.

Oof, 4 matchups. How am I supposed to keep up with that? ha. 

So will the matchups show up in Fantrax, or will they be tracked manually and all of the stats entered after the weekend is over?

I believe they will be manually adding them to our schedule. So it will show up normally. Just 4 matchups instead of the normal 2.

 

Edit: I don't love that you automatically play the two closest teams to you in your division. That means that the cellar dwellers play each other and the teams at the top square off. Hardly fair IMO for the good teams to have to play each other instead of some form of a round Robin where everyone plays everyone else.

Edit again: I'm not saying this to complain but to see if anyone has any ideas for what we could do instead of playing similar standings teams.

....Patrick Reed has one more week on my team.  He sucks it up again this week and I'll be fielding trade offers.

 

FWIW ... I don't get how my team can outscore 11 teams ahead of me and I'm still ranked below them.  That is....odd.

I got something to say then I'm gonna say it.

Week 5 is in the books and I've got a new way to deliver meaningless stats to you. Most notable for Week 5 is the amazing fact that Kyle Hiester not only won with merely 24.5 points, he won twice. Unbelievable. Set your lineups please. 
Also, congrats to [mention=81594]GB13[/mention] for taking the top spot this week. So far, the best weeks seem to be stabilizing right around that 200 mark so that really seems like the solid benchmark. 
Here you go with the new and improved spreadsheet:

Hope that's legible. If not, I'll redo it. You'll notice some new categories like highest losing score and overall division winners. Truth seems to take a lot of the individual accolades but Digest performs at a more rounded level.
THE PLAYERS is highlighted yellow because it's our first Tier 2 event. In addition to your normal 2 matchups, you'll get 2 more against the owners above and below you in your conference standings (4 total). [mention=55883]Berg Ryman[/mention] and I will work to get these added soon. 
 
Good Luck!
 
So since I am leading the truth conference, who do I play besides 2nd place? There isn't anyone above me in the standings! Perhaps last place since there is nobody below them!

That is right boys, even after trading for Mahan, I am still on top!

That wouldn't be a viable option since the other teams are playing similar opponents. They would have to play the top ranked team cross divisional and same for the bottom ranked team. Otherwise it would totally go against the idea of playing similar teams.

I agree, I am not a huge fan of this system either, but in one of @GolfSpy STUDque's posts he says 1 plays 2 and 16.

THE LEAGUE IS LOCKED
Let's do this

The voting is done, the league is full, the draft, divisions, and schedule are set.  It's go time.  We ended up with 32 players which has doubled the league from last year and, surprisingly, surpassed the fantasy football league size.  This should be great fun and have no issues whatsoever 🙂 

I've got a number of things to cover in this post so please read it all carefully:

_____________________________________________

Vote Results

  • League Makeup
    • 4/6/10 (same as last year) Wins by a vote of 15-2-8-0-1
  • Draft Time (Snake Format)
    • Jan 30, 8pm EST Wins by a vote of 15-7-2
  • Divisions or Not
    • Divisions wins by a vote of 17-9
    • Divisions "TRUTH" and "DIGEST" were split up by draft time vote
      • If you voted for 8PM EST, you're in TRUTH and draft at 8PM EST on Jan 30
      • If you voted for anything else, you're in DIGEST and draft at 9PM EST/6PM PST on Jan 30
    • TOP 8 FROM EACH DIVISION WILL MAKE PLAYOFFS

_____________________________________________

Season Format

We're going with our homespun method since we haven't heard back on the format requiring Fantrax intervention. Here we go:

  1. Standard weeks will have 2 randomly generated match-ups
  2. Tier 2 events will have the standard 2, plus a match-up with the person above and below you in divisions standings (4 total)
    • @Berg Ryman will make a separate post stating which events will be Tier 2 and why
  3. Majors will be the same as Tier 2 events, but you'll also have a match-up against the League Average (5 total)
    • League Average is the average points per team.  You'll face this number just like a normal matchup
  4. 68 total regular season games
  5. Playoffs will be as stated before in the pool brackets

_____________________________________________

Team Names

Here's a quick PSA.  To keep things straight, we really need the team names OR abbreviations to be similar to your MGS forum name.  Would the following managers please change your team name OR abbreviation:

_____________________________________________

Good luck to everyone this year! 

_____________________________________________

Edit: The Prize

As you probably could've figured, the prize to our champion will be:

1) Badge on your profile 

2) A 2020 MGS Testing Golden Ticket*

*rules apply

_____________________________________________

Edit 2

Yes, this means the #1 and #16 teams will match up in Tier 2 and Major events. More incentive to get to #1 or stay out of #16. 

If a standard matchup puts you against someone in standings proximity for Tier 2 and Majors, you could have 2 matchups against the same team..... So be it. 

Here @Undershooter, it's in the final edit.

In defense of this, as Stud said himself, it is a bonus for having earned the top seed going into these big weeks.

Thanks for the heads up. I was out of pocket for most of the preseason.

 

I'm not a fan of this, nor the play similar ranked teams thing. Just my 2 cents.

Does anyone have an idea for another way to set the matchups? One that would be slightly more fair. The only reason I brought it up was not to complain but to create discussion and find a better solution.

3 plays 4 and 14

4 plays 3 and 13

It's an advantage to be higher, but you're still playing a team close to you. 

Feel free to tear apart as needed!

Just saying, the time for this discussion would've been at the beginning of the season. There was ample time given to debate this. It's way too late to do it for THE PLAYERS (and the rest of the Tier 2 events) but we'd be willing to entertain a change to the majors if you guys can pass a vote for an alternative solution. 

Here's the short and sweet motivation for why we did it this way: season-long competition. Bringing everyone to the middle gives more teams a chance to make the playoffs for a larger portion of the schedule. What's the point to set lineups if you're eliminated from the playoffs before The Open? Besides, there will be no doubt that the top playoff seeds earned it. 

 

 

For this week, the Digest matchups are set. You'll see them in your live scoring or matchups page. @Berg Ryman will take care of Truth.

I don't mind the current rules. It's not like anyone has a bad or particularly good team. I'm in first and honestly there are a lot of other teams I'd rather go against than @Shankster whose in last this week and has both Rose and Molinari starting... As long as everyone is setting their lineup I don't think anyone is going to run away with it. Playing someone near you in rank just makes it more exciting if you ask me...Of course if you lose all 4 it sucks, but its still not like you are out of the whole thing, there is a very long season remaining...

I would be more inclined to be ok with it if #1 didn't play number two and then the last place. That means that everyone gets bunched together except for those in dead last and those in first. Who get further separated.

I apologize for not being a able to speak out in the pre-season about it. But it's not as though we haven't made adjustments on the fly all along.



Side note: Weren't waivers supposed to run this morning? Because they weren't processed and now some players are on wiavers and some are FA.

I think the waivers ran this morning, and anyone who wasn't claimed went to FA while anyone who was just dropped went to WW. Right @GolfSpy STUDque?
