One little peeve regarding rest/fatigue. You should get rest in the playoffs if your team wins and the other series is still ongoing. If there's a play-in game, all playoff teams not in playoffs should get a day's rest; if you sweep and the other series goes the distance, you should get 2-3 days' rest. Seems simple enough.
get rest in the playoffs if your team wins in the playoffs and the other series is ongoing. This is a common misconception, but the WIS FAQ in the knowledge base is very clear on this. You do not, however, get rest if both of you win in the same amount of games, even if that number of games is fewer than the maximum.
For example, if you win the LDS 3-0 and your next opponent wins 3-2, your players get 2 extra days of rest.
If you both win 3-0, you do not get any additional rest, even though (in theory) both teams should have 2 days off before the next series begins.
