I organized this tournament couple of years ago and would like to make it happen again as it was much fun and I’m on bed rest from ACL surgery lol and have nothing else to do lol!
Top two teams advance into the championship round, just like the WC where the winner of group A plays the second place team in
group B, and so on.
WINNER GETS A COOL TROPHY and $.
IF we get 32 players to sign up, the group stage draw will be as follows.
There will be 4 baskets of 8 players. Basket number one will feature the strongest players based on the rotogrinders NBA grinders leaderboard. The person who is the lowest on the list will be put into the basket number 4. Following me???
Basket 1. 1-8
Basket 2. 9-16
Basket 3. 17-24
Basket 4. 25-32
One name will be drawn from each basket to form a group so that each group has a player from each basket.
Each player will play 3 games in the group stage. For a win you get 3 points for a loss you get 0 and if you lose by less than 2 points you will be awarded 1 point. The top two teams with the most points will advance to the second round.
Along with the fun, we will have a live group stage drawing, blog posts and much more. Last time we have a dedicated member do a really cool Excel spreadsheet with data from the groups which was really cool.
Please put your name down in the thread if interested, If we get 32 people then let the games begin!!!
Last time we used Leaguesafe to collect and distribute funds(not a scam lol) plus there was a trophy for the winner.
The buy-in would be 51$ (1$ would go to sponsor the trophy as I bought it with my own funds last time)
Winners of each group get a small payout from the prize pool as a reward for winning their respective group
