    I like this.  I'll even go as far as trying to get Glu to get a cool gift for the winner.
    The winner gets to create a player, and the teams participating all get one. 
    It's not as cool as that, but I think it's better than that.

    Gift will only be going to first place though.
    That sounds like Glu speak for new sticker boxes....

    If that’s the case we should all let @retirepujols win it all 🤣😂

    Maybe it is; maybe it isn't.

    I'll tell you that when it's over, everybody but the winner will be salty, and everybody that hears about that didn't play are gonna be saltier.

    I didn’t even think of that but now I’m 99% sure @retirepujols is gonna get to have a custom sticker after winning...

    There was a 102% chance I would get waxed in the first round (which is exactly what’s happening) but I had no idea that skills weren’t active during these matches (i.e. Blowout, vs RHP, etc) 
  • criffycriffy Registered Users, Member 625 Posts
    @blueleopard there's 3 brackets, so there will be 3 winners. if there's only one winner that's getting a gift instead of one for each of the brackets, i'd suggest the gold bracket (not just because that's where i'm at, but maybe ;)) but because it has by far the largest turnout and most even competition, but your call
  • slafrance2slafrance2 Registered Users, Member 1,368 Posts
    @RookieTapper I just noticed that too about the skills only being active on inning one. 
  • retirepujolsretirepujols Registered Users, Member 4,392 Posts
    If there's a sticker involved, the winner better share that sucker

    I can see the gold bracket matchups. Not sure how to see the platinum/diamond matchups. 
    @marcuh you're playing @Horse42 - try not to get mercy ruled after the first inning...

    the brackets are on various tabs on the bottom of the spreadsheet if anyone has a question on accessing the brackets
  • BlackFang4BlackFang4 Registered Users, Member 512 Posts
    I would recommend to all playing to screenshot your results with you and your opponents name visible. I trust a grand total of four of you with the honors system, so you'll want to provide as much evidence as possible.

    So technically I'll be on Team Salty, but I'm not sure how that differs from Team Saltier. Are you saying I'll get 2k bxp for participating? 
  • MarcuhMarcuh Registered Users, Member 227 Posts
    Well im only down 36 Runs....I can do this.
    I’m in the same boat. Im a platinum team playing against the best diamond team in the tourney. Let me play a gold team and give em the business 😜

    I know lol. Too bad there weren’t enough platinum teams. Maybe next time. Anyways. Thanks for setting this up. I still had fun. Makes me want to improve my team to that next level even more 👍

    Ice wraps need to be banned from this event. Only bumps your pitcher up but not the other team

    thanks for the heads up @COWPILEY sorry you were the test dummy on that. i am not going to change the house rules mid-tourney unless it's something you can't work around... advice is to start your ace every time (cycle through your rotation via bonus games) to prevent this from being an uneven matchup.
  • COWPILEYCOWPILEY Registered Users, Member 765 Posts
    Considered restarting the game but turned out to not be a big deal as Fryanmak won anyway after my blunder. This is so much fun and so glad you set this up @criffy

    Is there an @xkingsmirdiex on the board?  Can't find you in the game.  Let's do this!

    He should be initiating game shortly. I am relaying info to him as he is a clubmate and not fluent with the forums.
