2020 Mystery Tournament - Final 12 Voting

PostSat May 23, 2020 3:19 pm

Congrats to the participants who have made it to the final 12. It's now time to start planning for the final 12 league, the winner of which will be the 2020 Mystery Tournament Champion!

At the start of the tournament, we basically stated "same rules as last year", and for the finals that means having the 12 finalists vote on a few options of variables that make up the league. Here are the items that require voting:

1. Mystery Set Choose your first choice and second choice out of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. Your 1st choice gets 2 points and your 2nd choice gets 1 point.

2. Salary Cap Choose between a $80 million salary cap and a $100 million salary cap.

3. Use of DH Choose whether or not you want to use a DH. Note: You can vote separately by set (e.g. no DH for 60's, but DH for 90's)

4. Unique Stadium Do you want to have "Unique Stadiums" in the finals?[/u][/b] Having Unique Stadiums means that we cannot have two teams in the final 12 league that are using the same stadium. If one team is using Yankee Stadium, no one else can have Yankee Stadium as their ballpark. If Autodraft is chosen, and Unique Stadiums is chosen, we'll have a quick stadium draft on the discussion forum based on final standings (1-12). If we vote for a partial live draft, we will make it mandatory to draft a ballpark as part of the live draft.

5. Repeat Stadiums Vote yes if you want to allow players to use the same stadium that they did earlier in the tournament. For example, if we did not allow repeat stadiums and I used Kingdome in my 80's league, then I would NOT be able to use Kingdome in the finals if the 80's set was chosen. This is not be confused with "Unique Stadiums", which is another variable in #4 above.

6. Divisions Vote for either seeded or random. If you vote for seeded, the final 12 will be distributed in the divisions in this way: E:1/6/7/12; C:2/5/8/11; W:3/4/9/10; If you vote for random the divisions will be randomly generated as they normally are in auto-draft leagues.

7. Draft Type Do you want to a regular Autodraft, or a "partial live" draft, or a "full live" draft? The past several years, we've opted for the partial live draft. If partial live draft is chosen, the drafting order would be based on the final overall standings with #1 in points getting the #1 pick, etc. and then snaking around for subsequent rounds (i.e., round 2 is 12, 11, 10, etc). We probably would do either 10 or 12 rounds (an "even" number is easiest / fairest) for the "live" draft (normally taking about 1 week), and then everyone fills out the rest of their draft cards with players not taken in the live draft. The discussion forum message board draft has worked reasonably well for this live draft in the past. There is also a lot more flexibility with the live draft option for leagues on 365. A time for the draft could be agreed to and a short pick time could be chosen, or a long pick time (many hours) could be chosen and it would run at a similar pace to the partial live via the discussion forum. The drafting order would be based on the final overall standings.

As of right now, here unofficially are the teams I have calculated to be participating in the finals:
1. franky35
2. jomboy78
3. Rigged Splits
4. hallerose
5. stratorat
6. Jimmy_C
7. pushpin76
8. Jablowmi
9. Radagast Brown
10. daveaq31
11. Icterus Galbuli
12. Rjnewman or Moodywoody

This will not be made OFFICIAL until Moodywoody's 90's finals series wrap up later this week. But, for those of you that are UNOFFICIALLY in, please feel free to reply with your vote on this at any time on voting items 1-7 above.

Would the new Strat live draft app work with the type of live draft we want?

Yeah I thought of that hallerose. I think I'll add that as an option. There's a lot more flexibility in that now so we might be able to pick a pick time length that works for everyone.

I think you just do time off, and count on everyone to set proxies and check in -- which is basically what we need to rely on now. You'd also need to be able to set the draft order (and maybe divisions) to the final standings, and not random. It was used in the ATG barnstormers finals recently.

Edit: I am available for a Live Draft any evening after about 8:30 pm EST... Or on the boards. Or however you guys decide.

Because of my work schedule the only times I would not be able to draft are the early morning hours.
