FPG 2023-2024 PLAYOFF INFO
« on: May 12, 2024, 04:38:48 PM »
It's time for another year of FPG playoffs.  We're going back to a 4 week, 12 person playoffs this year. The field is fairly small this year, so I'm being nice with the cutoff this year, if you've played 3 games this year, you are eligible to earn points in the playoffs. Things are pretty similar to what 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.

Qualifying Round: May 17, 2024 (#0625L)

> 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 24, 2024 (#0635L)

> The top 8 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.

Scrimmage: May 31, 2024 (#0655L)

> A game that will not count towards playoffs and is just for fun.

Semifinals: June 7, 2024 (#0655L)

> 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 21, 2024 (#0675L)

> 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 got one or two backup games following the finals in case something gets spoiled or preempted for whatever reason. It doesn't seem like there are many spoilers at all for these last 4 weeks, but be on the lookout just in case we get things.

I realize that I and one other eligible participants were here for one of these Friday shows, May 31st. I think the easiest thing to do is have those people play on Thursday's episode like normal and then have everyone else play out the Friday show. Seems like the fairest thing to do.

In any case, good luck. May the best FPG player win.

An update to the schedule:

Because I was at the show this Friday, some people had concerns about trying to work around that and trying a Thursday/Friday split. I have decided the easiest thing to do is to just make this Friday's game, May 31st, a scrimmage and move the other two games back to June 7th and June 21th (June 14th had some spoilers come out that would've affected our game).

There is some concern that we don't have backups. However, if the schedule lines up with what I have written down, it should mean that the following week, ending on June 28th, should be complete. That will be our backup barring anything popping up and causing a preemption. Plus, that means that we'd be saving a 3rd show game for the finals and that feels like a better challenge as a top 4 battle than a race to become our top 4.

Thank you for understanding.
