Westeros Fantasy Football: Survivor 2017

48 posts in this topic

For those that don't/couldn't recall, this had a very unique format. Up to Sixteen teams, not head to head - Rotisserie Scoring. At the end each week, the team with the lowest score that week is eliminated from the league. The commissioner locks down his/her roster and they can no longer make transactions or score points, taking his roster of players out of the game for the rest of the year.  To make sure week 16 is the championship, some weeks get 'combined'.

Every week thereafter, the team with the lowest score for that week is eliminated. By week 16, only two teams remain. Probably the most exciting format I've played. You don't have to be good, you just have to NEVER be the worst. The best overall team doesn't always win. One bad week and you are done.

Those are the base rules.  I will tweak them as required based on the number of teams we get.  My general plan is that we'll use two week intervals as long as necessary then switch to single week eliminations.   We'll draft Tuesday the 19th of September and start week #3 (right away).  Snake Draft.  6:30PM PDT.  League max = 14 teams  Odd number of teams is not an issue.

For example, if we had 12 teams:

Weeks 3 and 4 would be combined and at the end of week 4, the lowest total is gone. (11 teams remain)
Weeks 5 and 6 would be combined and at the end of week 6, the lowest total OF WEEKS 5 and 6 are eliminated. (10 teams remain)
Weeks 7 and 8 would be combined and at the end of week 8, the lowest total OF WEEKS 7 and 8 are eliminated. (9 teams remain)
Week 9 (lowest score FOR THAT WEEK ONLY) eliminated (8 teams remain)
Week 10 (lowest score FOR THAT WEEK ONLY) eliminated (7 teams remain)
Week 11 (lowest score FOR THAT WEEK ONLY) eliminated (6 teams remain)
Week 12 (lowest score FOR THAT WEEK ONLY) eliminated (5 teams remain)
Week 13 (lowest score FOR THAT WEEK ONLY) eliminated (4 teams remain)
etc
Week 16 (becomes head to head as only two teams remain - winner week 16 wins)
PM me for an invite.

I'll play.

Heard about this format for the first time this year and thought it sounded really fun.

Send me a PM with your email address and you are in.

And if you are on the fence about joining, just know Jaxom joined the league.  Now we KNOW it is serious.

I might be in.  Will let you know by tomorrow.

Always enjoyed the format.  Just didn't like running it.

Also definitely like 14 teams max instead of 16.

I'm in.  Got the invite, just can't accept while logged into my work account.  When would the draft be?  If we get into next week I have the Jewish Holidays at the end of next week and am not around that weekend either.

Not surprisingly, this is a format where autoJax might be able to complete, particularly if he creates a list.  Snake Drafts, normal rosters, Yahoo handles that way better than it handles large roster/auctions.

We have eight actually signed up, which in my mind was the bare minimum.  Twelve would be very nice.  Fourteen is ideal.

Up to ten with two more promised.  I'd really like the fill the last two slots
