Shifting Focus to the 80's

PostThu Feb 14, 2019 2:28 pm

Well done everyone. We have managed to get all 70s leagues drafted and we only lost one tournament participant this round. The tournament website has been updated to link the new 70s leagues to it, so we should be all set for 70s opening day on Monday. So, now it’s time to shift focus on the 80s! Here’s the plan:

As per franky’s pre-tournament plan, we have an extra week (so 3 weeks total) between opening day of the 70s and the 80s. So opening day of the 80s will be Monday March 11th. At midnight Eastern time on Friday February 22nd (Friday night / Saturday morning), I will run the randomizer to generate the list for the 80s leagues. For the sake of transparency, I will post this list (with a timestamp) immediately after generation. This list will have a randomized order – original signup order and 60s/70s league assignments will have no impact on this new randomization. The top 12 names in the list will form League 1, names 13-24 will form League 2, and so on. We now have 106 tournament participants, so League 8 and League 9 will each only have 11 teams assigned to it as we will need two fillers to get to 108 for 9 leagues.

I will then create all 9 80s Leagues, and create a separate thread for each league listing the membership and a link to the league website to join. League passwords will be sent out via Private Message like they were for the 70s. This seemed to work well, and it will prevent people from joining the wrong league and it will prevent people who aren’t tournament participants from joining our leagues.

You will have 1 full week to load your 80s team into your assigned league – you will have 7 full days from Saturday February 23rd through end of day Friday March 1st to load your teams. Hopefully this should give everyone a long period to join on time. Closers are not to join until Saturday March 2nd at the earliest.

Thanks again for your patience in getting the 70s leagues loaded, and let’s get ready to take the 80s by storm!

This is my first tourney - just a quick thank you for organization and communication...now, if you could just bat .240 and play SS in the 60s, I would really throw out the accolades!

Seriously, thanks from a first-timer...

Well I think I might be able to hit .240....but I'm a 5e65 at SS, so that could be a problem.
