I'm kinda Glad I Missed the Playoffs, I Wouldn't have been able to do much, and now I get to draft Higher, (I think that's how it works, I'm pretty sure I'm the lowest drafting non-playoff team at 20)

According the league sorting of the standings, Blue Devels are higher sorted than you and should draft at 20 and you at 19.
Why, because KAFakofers are playoff team, but on league sorting so low sorted than you can't see them if you look at your teams place.
But playoff teams get their final seat after the results in the playoffs.
They should be at 21 draft order I guess.

Is draft order a fixed in stone formula? Or is some random factor involved?
If it's set in stone, I think random factor would have the potential as an anti-tank missile. I'd even load it with the cumulative explosive - the randomness would be a bit more pronounced for low numbers.
What do you guys think?

EDIT: A sligthly less dramatic solution, assuming it's a formula with no randomness - weighted average. Weighted over a few seasons. So if a team like my own keeps having low numbers season in and season out, I'd slowly but steadily climb up the ladder. For example, mix the currently used draft order with a fraction of (MAX - last season's draft order), with "fraction" smaller for N+1 seasons ago than for N seasons ago.

Hmm.. Actually randomness wouldn't help. It might even backfire. The first few draft picks are all good, and randomness might even benefit someone who didn't manage to get to the very bottom

Not posting this as a suggestion, mind you. I don't know how the formula works. May be it already _does_ involve some time averaging.

It's a fixed formular and honestly I think any change would not help to have some sort of lottery in it.

The value of drafties are often bad and the evaluation of those heavily depended on the managers rules.

The best values for players you get usually by YA and transfer market and some lucky pick on the draft.

Our season comes as expected to an end. In the end the defeat was a little too high. Congratulations to ideaguy and his Burnaby Bruisers. All the best to all remaining teams.

With that we have as Divisional Playoff games:

Hemet Hooligans vs. Leverkusen Leopards
-> this is my teams to lose, but Hooligans are in good shape and won the past 2 matchups.

Paxtang Black Panthers vs. Southern Meerkats
-> open game, rematch of a regular season match, which was a close one for the Panthers. Panthers never lost against them. Strength wise this should be Meercats, expierence suggest the Panthers.

Roll Badge 2.0 vs. Black Dragons
-> The Dragons are a big favorite here. But the had a close one during the season, while the divisional games in total were swept by the Dragons and they also lost only once against the Badge ever.

Ruhrpott Miners vs. Burnaby Bruisers
-> Bruisers are here the favorite, the Supercup game this season was won by them also.

Good luck to all.

Oh damn, I was too busy to do the preview for the championship games.

So, Hooligans won against my team, well done, their defense was very good on that day.

The Meerkats won in a low scoring game. So the streak is broken.

Black Dragons won a close one.

And last, the Bruisers won with the highest margin of all games.

That led to those games:

Burnaby Bruisers vs Black Dragons
-> My favorite was still the Dragons, bit at the end did the Bruisers win the game by almost 2 scores.

Hemet Hooligans vs Southern Meerkats
-> Here I would have picked the Hooligans and they won by 16.

That means for the bowl next Tuesday and we also have the two new Elite members for next season.

Hemet Hooligans vs Burnaby Bruisers

Congratulations and Good Luck!
