An Update On Playoffs And Team Standings In CCT3
« on: November 02, 2014, 10:18:25 pm »
I spent a little while looking at team standings to find out how things would play out going into next week and found out some interesting information. Based on this information I, as well as the other admins, have come to a decision about a change in the rules. I will get to that at the end of this post. First enjoy some fun info.

Going into the final week of CCT3 there are 13 teams competing for the 8 playoff slots. That leaves 5 teams to be eliminated.
Next week 4 teams are guaranteed to be eliminated by a loss, leaving 9 teams left "in the running".
It is also possible for a 5th team to be eliminated by a loss, leaving only 8.
Revelation, Apollyon, Bed Time, and Salmon Catchers have all clinched a place in the playoffs.
Revelation has already clinched a top 4 seed.
NFG, Lowbobs, FNATIC, Diplomacy, Dangerous, Team Mexico, *, Team Spade, and Velvet Room are all competing for the final 4 playoff slots.

Now to get to the rule change. Because the amount of team drops, and the fact that it will ultimately come down to 2 teams fighting for the last spot based entirely on resistance, we have decided that in the case of a tie for the 8th spot we will be having a head to head tiebreaker between the 8th and 9th seeded teams. No team will be eliminated based on resistance, it will only be used in seeding. After next round any team with a 4-2 record or better (potentially 9 teams) is guaranteed either a spot in playoffs or a chance to play in for the final slot. If the two teams fighting for the last slot have already played each other, we will be using the results of that game to determine who gets the spot.

The reason for this decision is that we feel it would be unfair for one team to potentially miss playoffs entirely because they played against more teams that dropped out of the event. If there were several teams fighting for the last spot it would be more reasonable to use resistance, but it is our belief that this is the better call to ensure everyone gets a fair chance.

I am waiting for the deadline tonight before making next weeks pairings, so they will likely not get posted until tomorrow afternoon. We hope this solution is something everyone is happy with as we believe it is in the best spirit of competition. Good luck to all the teams!

jk good job jacob, although my team has potentially the highest resistance of all so far, i can attest that it would be lame to not make the top 8 with the same record as the team above you with slightly lower resistance.

Good idea, I approve of this, especially since the situation with Bye wins was becoming quite tedious. Props for coming up with a way of sorting that out.

You are actually correct. It had slipped my mind that they hadn't played against you guys yet when I said that. They have top 4 seed clinched, but other than that it is still up for grabs. I updated the original post.
