It may be a good idea and I'm always open to new proposals.

But how would you do it? Choose some games and give them more weight in the Pick'em? Which games? Randomly? The ones with the most matched teams? The ones between teams involved in playoff and/or relegation battles?

Another option would be for each GM to choose the weight they would give to each game. But maybe this would complicate the Pick'em too much?


I'm also surprised about this.
Perhaps nobody asked, but if this was a whoever wants to join thing perhaps there were other managers (not Elite) interested in playing. And a prize also helps but for that you need to check with Pete. If i paid more atention from the beggining i would definetely joined from the start, but considered it was only an Elite teams only, like you did for Dragons region in the past.
Even if most managers bailed, you are doing a great job with lots of interest and hours put into all you are doing

I did mean the games with playoff/relegation implications. Since those will be the games more interesting to pay attention to.

I like the idea.

Now the question is: what week do we start? Which teams do we consider to be implicated in playoffs/relegation?

Right now, in week 10, most teams still have a chance of playoffs and also a chance of relegation.

We'll have to think more about this

In the following link, you'll now see an empty sheet.

Picks for Week 10.

But, if everything goes according to plan, at the start time of the week 10 games, the picks will appear automatically.

Maybe I'm being too optimistic

We'll see

Week 10 results:

Pick'em - RZA Elite League

Another week of head to head between Olband and Popopotamo. And of course, Olband won. 11 out of 14 for Olband. One less for Popopotamo.

I'm embarrassed to say how the overall standings are going. Whoever wants to know, take a look!

Two surprising results, at least for us:

- The victory of Grail Knights over Diorite Lions.

- Fargo's victory over TOOL.
