Proposed Payouts (patterned after the Commander $5K) A 96% payback! 

 

Regular Season Prizes - After 13 Weeks:

 

Most Victory Points *pts tie-breaker $5,000

2nd Most Victory Points *pts tie-breaker $5,000

 

4 teams make the playoffs. 

 

Commander Playoff Prizes - Weeks 14-16: (Updated March 7th, moved 4th place into 3rd place) The thinking being, this guarantees a points leader or record leader $21,000 for finishing in 1st in the regular season and 3rd in the playoffs. 

 

1st Place: $55,000 

2nd Place: $32,500

3rd Place: $16,000

 

Win up to $60,000 playing in the Top Gun! 

 

The non playoff teams will all battle for a Free 2015 FFWC Main Event entry in weeks 14-16 (carrying their average points scored)

 

We must insist that due to the large nature of the payback that all payments need to be made by check or money order only please, no electronic payments. 

 

How about removing kickers and defenses? (just an idea)

I would take off the 4th place $3000 and put it somewhere else, anywhere really but dont like the 4th place payout.  It will look better somewhere else imo.

Hey Mike, usually I agree with you, but if you take the 5k for most vps and tank, it's kind of nice to still hit 8k. Hmmm, maybe I'm in the minority here.

If I am entering a league for 10k and I finish 3rd and only win $13,000 I feel slightly cheated, whereas if I win $16,000 it looks and feels alot better IMO.  And when you get down to 4 playoff teams 3 out of the 4 win some serious cash, I can live with those chances and hope I'm not 4th place.  $3000 is nice but doesn't do me a whole lot if I am entering a 10k league.  That $16,000 to 3rd place feels alot nicer IMO.

True that, 3rd and making a 6K profit is pretty nice, I guess my only point is that 3rd place wins somewhere between $13,000 and $18,000. In your example, 3rd place would make between $16,000 and $21,000. 

Do you think the 3rd place team (in the example above) deserves $21,000? Hmm.. maybe you're right, I just feel real bad for the guy that dominated all year (won $5k and doesn't see another penny because his team fell apart. $8K feels better for the regular season (13 week dominance).  (to me)

 

Good discussion!

Are we locked into Friday for this?  Fridays and Saturdays are loaded with Main Events throughout Vegas.  Any possibility to holding this earlier in the week when there's more time for these ancillary events?

Glenn, you're right. The ONLY other time slot that works for us is WEDNESDAY before the Emil early bird, depending on when everybody gets in to Vegas. 

 

We've decided... Thursday 1:00pm pdt!!!!

Getting a lot of positive feedback about Thursday afternoon at 1:0pm for the Top Gun. 


I don't think there's any reason whatsoever to not heavily consider the Top Gun $10K league at 1:00pM on Thursday. 

 

You draft Commander, we have lunch, you draft Top Gun, you enjoy the game.

2. Mike Santos Last year's 26th ranked overall and his co-manager Kurt Kuekes. They form the combination of Coyote Assassins. 
 
I'm sure those rankings are going up after their great year.

It didn't take long for the Champ to make it known that he wanted in the biggest league ever here at FFWC.

 

Glenn Lowy says he's IN for Top Gun. Who you ask??
