    Just like in years past we will be running a tournament to decide team selection. However, as our league has grown and progressed, so has the tournament.​
    This year we will be doing group play leading into a bracket style tournament. On the surface this looks a bit confusing, but it is the best way to achieve a fair and balance structure, while also giving a slight advantage for past game play and league member longevity.​
    Without further adieu... here's the bracket:​

    Here is the run down:​
    • The seeding for each group was based off of a various number of factors in order to ensure the most fair and competitive seeding scenario possible.
    • Every user has been randomly assigned one of the bottom 13 teams in the game and will use that assigned team throughout the tournament.
    • There are 4 groups of 3 users. Each user plays everyone in their group twice for a total of 4 group play games. The users with the best record will advance to the "Main Bracket". The users with the 2nd best record will advance to the "Middle Bracket". And lastly, the users with the worst record will advance to the "Bottom Bracket". In the case of a tie, in the group stage, the user with the higher seed will advance to the higher bracket.
    • In the bracket stage, each bracket is a 4 team playoff with the losers of the 1st round meeting in a game for 3rd and 4th place respectfully in their bracket.
    • The draft order will be set by each users performance in each bracket. The "Main Bracket" will get picks 1-4, the "Middle Bracket" 5-8, and the "Bottom Bracket" picks 9-12.
    I know its a lot to take in, but once the seeding is unveiled and we get rolling it will become very clear.​
    Last but not least, we will be unveiling the group brackets in a series of videos in the up coming days!​

    Looks like that college degree is playing dividends...

    Winners of the group plays in a knockout tournament for pick 1-4

    2nd place of the group plays in a knockout for pick 5-8

    3rd place of the group plays in a knockout for pick 9-12

    Since everyone seems to be dropping in to say what's up, might as well join the party. Glad to see a great crew of "older guys" still here. This is the first time in years, I haven't bought the game when it first dropped, but that's what studying for part 3 of 4 of the CPA exam will do to you. Hopefully once I get that knocked out I can turn my priorities back where they belong and play a lot more NCAA. I'll hit you guys up once I get the game we can run some scrimmages, man I miss those battles with Sabo, Ford, and UAGRAD.

    Since the seeding wasn't random and holds value, the tie breaker is the higher seed.
