SURVIVOR XII: Ahrens Crowned Champion Topic

Posted by ghutton9 on 5/6/2013 9:43:00 PM (view original):

Here's another simple MLB challenge for tomorrow. There are 15 games set for tomorrow Tuesday May 7th. Each survivor must set the score for any of 15 teams. For every run you are off, you get penalized 1 point. The winner of this challenge will be the survivor with the lowest score. All picks must be submitted to the survivorxii account before the start of the earliest game tomorrow. Rain outs will result in an automatic 5 points, so don't try to pick rain out games and give me a score of 0 for them. As usual, the winner of this challenge will have immunity from the next vote. The tie breakers are #1-closest to the total score of Knicks vs Pacers and #2-closest to the total score of Grizzlies vs Thunder. Tie breaker #3 if needed is order received.
Also, the results from this challenge will determine the seeding for the final 8 challenge.

What is the penalty for non submitted picks (ie sjurat) 5 run penalty or more?
5/7/2013 8:28 PM
5 runs. I forgot to post that. It's the same as rain outs.

I misunderstood the challenge - hopefully the voters will not hold that against me

1 vote for shoe21
7 votes for shlog3131

shlog3131 is voted out and heads to redemption island

*kneeneighbor's vote was late and therefore we did not count it.  We feel that it was due to his situation and not because he was trying to outplay the rules, so he will stay in the game.

Challenge #16: We Miss Football!

This challenge will be a WIS NFL Dream Team tournament. Each survivor will create a 2012 NFL Dream Team, according to the rules below. To create a Dream Team, click on “Dream Team”, which is a few links underneath “sitemail” on your WIS Locker page. I will simulate the games and post the box score links on the forum. The winner of the tournament will have immunity during the next vote. 

Dream Team Information/Rules:
-All players must be from the year 2012
-All roster spots must be filled
-The salary cap is 60 million. If you are over the salary cap when I simulate, your team automatically loses. For winning the last challenge, polabonez has a 62 million cap.
-Make sure to create your dream team so that the players appear in depth chart order.
-The team must be underneath your username. When your team is complete, you must sitemail survivorxii with your team name and your preferred offensive playbook (Balanced, Favor Pass, Favor Run, West Coast).
-Some Advice: I’ve noticed that sometimes when you update players on Dream Teams, the roster replaces other players with old deleted players. This could cause your salary cap to be over. I suggest that when you find your preferred roster, you create a second team with that exact roster and don’t make any changes.

Tournament Information:
-Seeds #1 - #8 will be determined by the previous challenge. There will not be any re-seeding after a round is complete. 
-All matchups will be the best of 3 games. The lower seed will be home for games 1 and 3, while the higher seed is home for game 2. 
-All games will be played at a temperature of 70 degrees with no wind or precipitation. 

You must submit your teamname and preferred playbook to survivorxii by 7pm EST on Friday. The tournament schedule will be posted separately.
