Well it's that time of year again and Grav has spearheaded a new set of rules that bring the fantasy league in line with real sports.

-- New Rules --

PLEASE READ THIS POST AND COMMENT (about playoff multiplier system)
https://forums.the-elite.net/index.php?topic=22476.msg454495#msg454495

1. There is now a regular season and a postseason.

- The regular season will last 17 weeks (119 days) starting after tomorrow's draft
- The postseason (playoffs) will last 4 weeks. Quarterfinals (1 week), Semis (1 week), Finals (2 Weeks).
- Regular season rankings will determine the postseason seeding.

2. No more unlimited replacing of players on your team.

- You may drop 4 players total maximum on your team
- There is a trading/dropping deadline on Sunday, August 19th
- Your roster will be locked in place from August 19th until the END of the playoffs.
- Trading/dropping players is allowed at anytime before trade deadline.

3. Proven times only.

- The end of the season and the end of each playoff round counts only times that have been proven.
- Times modified by a bonus multiplier will only be multiplied if the time is proven BEFORE the bonus period ends.

4. Untieds are no longer their own tier.

- All untieds will be a 2x multiplier on the tier of the time it is as determined by the community.

5. Daily Doubles and Weekly Incentives for the regular season.

- There are 119 days, so all but one level will have a day where you get double points for playing it.
- Every week, there will be a 50% extra bonus for an announced weekly incentive.
- There is no limit on how many people can get a daily double bonus.
- No bonuses for the playoff rounds. No items, Fox only, final destination!!!
- Multipliers can be stacked (untied 2x bonus, daily double 2x bonus, weekly incentive 1.5x bonus).
- Stacking multipliers will NOT be compounded.
- Postseason will have a special multiplier system that will be weighted both by your final rank and your point margin

6. Forum badge.

- The winners of fantasy league will get a forum badge for their victory.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The league will consist of the usual numbers, 8 teams of 5 players (6 including captain).

We understand that these are big changes and we encourage everyone to discuss concerns or provide feedback. We're just trying something new and we'll see how it goes. Just keep an open mind because these new rules look like fun, and the daily and weekly incentives will keep it interesting for the lengthy time period.

Hoarding is discouraged but anyone can decide to do it so it's not really an unfair advantage.

If you'd like to be a team captain, reply to this topic with your team name.

Teams:
WINNER: Buy the Dip (Luke)
2nd) Third Echelon (Sam Fisher)
3rd) The Butler Plugs (Irie)
4th) Golden Strawberries (Green)
5th) The Chicken Coupe (Harry)
6th) The Bobandy Experience (Randy C)
7th) Windows 7 (dsx)
8th) Sweet Baby Ray's (Sammy)

The draft will occur on the night before the league begins, a few hours prior.

Happy signups!

I will play, full disclosure I have limited play time. You can view my available times. I would estimate my value to be a few hundred points, perhaps more.

I’m declaring for the draft  :cool:

(Am willing to play PD as well as GE)

What can I offer the team points wise? I have plenty of easy GE points left to gain as I have played very few levels, Depot, Facility, Archives SA/00, and several common beginner times such as S1 1:04 and Streets 1:14 remain untouched, and since I plan on getting at least one second better on each of those levels, the total point gain is pretty good. I also plan on playin for some easy PD points, with a fully unlocked cart and some basics down, shown in at least my Chicago 16.

Teammate wise, I can offer positive energy and support, giving advice what I can to any newer players like myself or even older players playing levels I have experience on

Personally, I’m a fast learner, excited and driven to improve, and I don’t give up easy

Here's my pitch for picking me up:

- I have large potential for time attainment
- I learn from mistakes and can swiftly correct them when the effort is put in
- Benefits well from coaching/is coachable by anyone
- Still doesn't have S2 A 47, Cradle sweep, Archives 54/55s, S1 A 102, or points at all on Frig SA/00A, Cavs SA/00A, or Aztec

- You know I'm a great choice, especially on night shift rotations when I have no time but to grind GE (or PD  :nesquik: )

It would be fun to be a part of it again! I have most of the standard times left to grind for, so I can probably contribute with a couple of hundreds.

It wasn't stated in the rules so I will let everyone know about this really quick.

- Multipliers can be stacked (untied 2x bonus, daily double 2x bonus, weekly incentive 1.5x bonus)
- Stacking multipliers will NOT be compounded

To get what this means, consider the two scenarios:

Compounding multipliers:
Tier 1 Untied with DD/WI = 200 points x 2 x 2 x 1.5 = 1200 points

Non compounding multipliers:
Tier 1 Untied with DD/WI = 200 points + 200 points + 200 points + 100 points = 700 points

It gets a bit too exploitable when they stack lol. So 700 points will be the most you can possibly get with a single time if the stars align for you :nesquik:

Keep in mind also that points will be in much greater supply with all these multipliers so 700 is worth a lot less than 700 in prior years too.

If you pick me I can guarantee a non-negative net score  :cool:
And precisely 200 points.

Though I have 2 questions:
 - are your points based on the tier of the WR at the time you got it, or can your points degrade?
 - can other people find this thread? I only found it in my browser history..
