A question has been brought up about the Lock Pick. You CAN pick a team that you picked in the regular season. It's a clean slate.

Fantastic News! Hall of Heroes has now surpassed 600 Hero Ratings! I couldn't have done it without all of you and I will strive to maintain and improve my high standards. Which brings me to my next announcement - starting now, all shipments will come with tracking at no extra charge to you! I'm a little late to the party but as they say - better late than never. You spoke and I heard you loud and clear. Excelsior!

That's good seeing as I used all 8 teams involved this weekend as my lock pick.

Is it just me or has it gotten to the point where every pick of mine is a guaranteed loss? At Wits' End I was doing so well during the first several weeks of the season. Oh well, I still had fun. Congratulations to all the winners so far!

Wild Card Weekend. Favorites in BOLD.

Kansas City @ Indianapolis
New Orleans @ Philadelphia
San Diego @ Cincinnati
San Francisco @ Green Bay

The Playoffs are high stakes and the scoring is increased in this competition as well.

Favorite = 3 points
Underdog = 5 points
Lock Pick = 8 points (minus 3 if you get it wrong)

A quick recap of the spots still in contention:

Total Weekly Points

Reggie vs Dreadnok01 (#4 & #5)
MoonKnight1 vs BruceReville (#6 & #7)

Lock Pick

jbeeman85 vs MoonKnight1 (#2 & #3)
freakdylan, Dreadnok01, DivideAndConquer and Reggie (#5 - #8)


Weekly High Score

Reggie, freakdylan, ComicReaderBatman, DivideAndConquer and Dreadnok01 (#2- 7)
MoonKnight1 vs BruceReville (battle for the basement! #9 & #10)

Sudden Death Format. If there are any ties remaining they will be resolved on Divisional Playoff Weekend.

Questions?

Have at it!


What a wacky weekend of playoff games!

Here's what happened in our little corner of the sports competition world:

dreadnok01 - IND +3 points, NO - LP +8, Cin +0, SF +3 = 14 points
MoonKnight1 - KC +0 points, NO - LP +8, SD +5, GB +0 = 13 points
DivideAndConquer - IND +3 points, NO +5, Cin - LP -3, SF +3 = 8 points
freakdylan - KC +0 points, NO +5, Cin +0, GB LP -3 = 2 points
jbeeman85- KC +0 points, NO +5, Cin LP -3, GB +0 = 2 points
BruceReville - IND +3 points, Phi- +0, Cin - LP -3, GB +0 = 0 points
ComicReaderBatman - IND +3 points, PHI +0, Cin - LP -3, GB +0 = 0 points
b0bafett - KC +0 points, PHI +0, Cin - LP -3, GB +0 = -3 points
Reggie - KC +0 points, PHI +0, Cin - LP -3, GB +0 = -3 points

All but one category is now completely closed out. The lone exception is Lock Pick which still has a 3-way tie between freakdylan, DivideAndConquer and Reggie for slots #6-8. The Overall Winner has yet to be determined and this category could very well decide it.

Stay Tuned!

I want to thank everyone for playing! Thanks to all of you who stuck it out all year and ComicReaderBatman who came in partway through and had an excellent run!

I have had a great time running this and appreciate you all very much! This was the first time for me running something like this and I am planning on doing it again next season.

I would like to ask everyone for their thoughts on how I could tweak or improve anything. I already have some things I will definitely be changing for the next competition so feel free to express your opinions. If you mention something I am thinking about altering it would be validation for me. Plus, I'm OK with constructive criticism!

To show my appreciation to everyone who competed, I will be giving a prize to all participants this year. After the winners select their prizes each person in turn will be able to pick something from what's left.

Salud!

The scoring system for picking games was fair. The only thing with the scoring that I might change would be if your Lock Pick or Monday Night pick was an underdog getting the extra point that you got for picking an underdog in a regular game That may not make sense, here's a rambling mess trying to explain it to confuse you more, when we correctly picked an underdog team we got 2 points and favorite we got 1 (that's where I got the "extra point" for underdogs), so on a Monday Night pick or Lock Pick, correctly choosing a favorite would still get you the 3 points that it did this year, while, under my proposal, correctly choosing an underdog for Monday or Lock would get you 4.

The scoring used for the Playoffs, I would keep just for the playoffs and not the regular season as it is used to break ties.

It didn't affect this year's winners but for any single category, to win I think there should be a requirement for a certain number of weeks to be played to win. With no minimum, you could possibly have one guy come in and have an awesome 15-1 week (like b0bafett did in the last week) the first week and win both the high score and win percentage prize without ever playing for the rest of the year.

That was probably a little wordy but hope it makes sense. I had fun doing this and it made me start to pay more attention to the rest of the league instead of focusing solely on my Titans. I plan on playing again next year.
