Format

First round will be 4 groups of 8 players selected randomly.
Most selected player each week will get eliminated. In case of a tie, both players will be eliminated, excluding certain situations in which we will have a tiebreaking vote.
Groups will get smaller, randomly shuffled each week, until 6-8 remain, followed by single elimination rounds.
Final will be top 3 as we will award a Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalist this year.

Looking forward!

(any comments or suggestions, please let me know and I can take it into consideration)

Durrrr I messed up the group namings in the thread titles. There are 4 threads, 4 groups. Will fix in the next round.
 
Lol I was just about to ask why are there 4 Group “A”s?
The person who created the thread can change the thread titles. You don’t have to wait until next round.

World Cup style survivor pool instead of everyone at once? Conditioning us to accept the new playoff format? Did Garber hack your account??

We've done this every year 🤣 polls don't allow for that many choices
 
Very interested to see where this goes after we get rid of the dead wood in round 2 and 3.
 
Curious on people's thoughts:

Seeing as at end of year we have lots of roster turnover and people tend to vote out those who aren't here - would you be interested if we did a survivor mid-season that spanned the length of leagues cup, which would include the first half of the season's results so we could vote on currently-present players?
 
You are all made of different stuff than me. This whole concept with current players feels like bad juju. Doing it during the season ... oy vez.

I think this year was extreme. We have had limited turnover in the past, and before this year it always seemed to me that I was in the minority voting for people who left. I would often vote for the same guy several weeks in a row. I would keep things as is and see if it settles back to normal next year.
