Hello everyone, sorry I've been slacking on you guys this year. This has been a time of much change for me, most of it good, but all of it stressful. This is my last semester before I get my bachelor's degree, and this happens to be finals week. Along with changes at work, it's been keeping me busy and distracted. Just wanted to give a heads up as to why this season may have been more quiet than normal.

Unfortunately, I don't have a leaderboard yet, but I will be diligent on that after everything wraps up tomorrow. This year's cutoff is 5 games, this covers most players with the exception of a few people who mostly played at the beginning of the season. If you've been a regular player at some point either this season or in the past, you're probably fine. Things are mostly the same as they have been in the past, here's a breakdown of the playoffs:

Key cash will not be awarded, nor will the normal scale of FPG points and cash. Everything else is still in play, however - the 1/2/3/4 point bonuses, NCFAC picks (if you have any left) and the six-for-six cash award can still be earned. There's some NCFAC picks out there, don't be afraid to use them, they don't rollover into next season.

Here's how the schedule will work:

Qualifying Round: May 13, 2022 (#9845K)

> The top 12 MP/CP scorers will advance to the quarterfinals.
> You must score at least 1 MP to advance, so it is possible that less than 12 players do so.
> Players eliminated in this round receive no bonus points or cash.

Quarterfinals: May 20, 2022 (#9855K)

> The top eight MP/CP scorers advance to the semifinals.
> You must still score at least 1 MP to advance.
> Eliminated players receive 30 points and $75,000 on the leaderboard.

Semifinals: May 27, 2022 (#9865K)

> The top four MP/CP scorers advance to the finals.
> You must still score at least 1 MP to advance.
> Eliminated players receive the following...

     8th place: 70 points and $200,000
     7th place: 80 points and $300,000
     6th place: 90 points and $400,000
     5th place: 100 points and $500,000

The Finals: June 3, 2022 (#9875K)

> Finalist bonuses are as follows...

     4th place: 125 points and $750,000
     3rd place: 150 points and $1,000,000
     Runner-Up: 200 points and $1,500,000
     Grand Champion: 300 points and $3,000,000

We've been riding by the seat of our pants this season and that's how the end of the season is looking. There's plenty of spoilers out there just kinda in the ether waiting to come up, so be aware. I will try to keep you guys up to date on them, but I may miss one or two of them due to tape day shenanigans. I'm hoping that we will be okay with what we have, but if we need to go back to that missing show or play a Thursday with a spoiled Friday, we will. Wishing all of us the best of luck.
