FC Dynasty Cup IX - Fighting Ants - Champion Topic

Welcome to FC Dynasty Cup IX. My thanks to all of you for keeping the tournament going during my convalescence and my hats off to Duuude for stepping in to run the last four Cups. Now, let's get down to business.

The following tournament format and rules will apply

TOURNAMENT FORMAT
The tournament will be split into multiple stages, a group play followed by knockout rounds. Teams will be eliminated at the end of each stage until a champion is crowned. This champion will lay claim to glory and shall have bragging rights over all teams in all worlds for a very short period of time.

Group Stage
Each team is initially assigned to a group. Group play will consist of a round robin, with each team playing home and away against the other teams within their group. Points will be based on the following - 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss.

The top two teams in points out of each group will advance to the Knockout Stage with tiebreakers being decided in the following order - goal differential, then away goals and lastly goals scored. If the teams are still tied, a coin flip using random.org's random number service will determine who advances.


Knockout Stage
Each round will be a home/away set with the winner being based on aggregate goals. If aggregate goals are tied, the higher seed will host the lower seed in an additional game. If that game is tied, the lower seed will then host the higher seed and so on. As long as both coaches are scheduling games, the round will continue until one side wins outright. If one team fails to schedule for three consecutive days, that team will forfeit the round and the other team will advance.

Seeding for the knockout rounds will be determined in the following order. The six group winners will automatically get the top six seeds and the six 2nd place finishers will be seeded 7-12. The top four seeds will get a 1st Round bye and will begin knockout play in the quarterfinals.

The 1st Round will consist of the following:

#5 seed vs #12 seed
#6 seed vs #11 seed
#7 seed vs #10 seed
#8 seed vs #9 seed

The quarterfinals will consist of the following:

#1 seed vs winner of #8/#9 match-up
#2 seed vs winner of #7/#10 match-up
#3 seed vs winner of #6/#11 match-up
#4 seed vs winner of #5/#12 match-up


The semifinals will consist of the following:

#1 seed quarterfinals match-up vs #4 seed quarterfinals match-up
#2 seed quarterfinals match-up vs #3 seed quarterfinals match-up

Championship Round
The Championship Round will match the two remaining teams in a home and away series with the winner being based on aggregate goals. If an aggregate goal tie occurs, the host of the additional game will be decided by a coin flip using random.org's random number service. The Championship Round is the only round not subject to a set time frame. Scheduling is open-ended and tiebreakers are unlimited until a Champion has proven their worth on the field.

TOURNAMENT RULES
Each stage of the tournament, other than the Championship, will have a specific time frame in which all games must be scheduled. Failure to schedule games within the allotted time frame will result in a forfeiture. On the evening of the last day for each stage, all games that have not been scheduled will be deemed a 0-0 draw so that the stage can be completed. The team failing to issue (or accept) a challenge will be awarded no points for the drawn game. Any team with more than one forfeiture will be withdrawn from the tournament and cannot advance.

Entering the final 72 hours of each stage's time frame, any team that has not received a challenge by an opponent (or has sent a challenge that has not been accepted) should post a request to the other coach here or, if the coach does not have posting rights, via sitemail to gomiami1972, who will post the request on your behalf in this forum thread. I would prefer, if you do not have posting rights, to send any requests through me rather than sitemailing each other. That will cut down on the volume of mail being shipped about.


If you receive a challenge in the same slot you have sent a challenge, please accept the incoming challenge and re-issue your own. If you receive multiple challenges in the same slot, choose one ASAP to give the team you declined as much time as possible to issue a new request.

Time Frame to Schedule Group Stage Games - June 15 through June 27 (Challenges must be sent/accepted by 7pm on the 27th. This does not mean the games must be played by the 27th.)
Time Frame to Schedule 1st Round Games - June 30th through July 8th (Challenges must be sent/accepted by 7pm on the 8th. This does not mean the games must be played by the 8th.)
Time Frame to Schedule Quarterfinal Games - July 11th through July 19th (Challenges must be sent/accepted by 7pm on the 19th. This does not mean the games must be played by the 19th.)
Time Frame to Schedule Semifinal Games - July 21th through July 28th (Challenges must be sent/accepted by 7pm on the 28th. This does not mean the games must be played by the 28th.)

Best of luck to all of the participants in their quest for the ultimate prize - The FC Dynasty Cup!

Fighting Ants and Duuude2 become the first team in FC Dynasty Cup history to become a two-time Champion as they deny The Shield of the Cow, who was not only trying to claim the same historical feat but was also trying to become the first team to successfully defend their title. The game featured The Cow take the lead five times, only for the Ants to strike back five times and level the contest, which was the aggregate margin they needed. The last three minutes saw The Cow's Arjan Joris score to give them a 5-4 lead and seemingly send the series back to America for a sudden death tiebreaker. That's when the Ants' 32 year old Portuguese striker Madaleno Pemeta decided he wanted to go home rather than travel back over the Atlantic. His header off of a cross in the 89th minute was unchallenged by veteran Cow goalie Rhett Ximénez and the game ended with a 5-5 tie, giving the aggregate, and the championship to Fighting Ants 7-6.

Congratulations to The Shield of the Cow and jeffdrayer for the Runner Up trophy. The L'Orteil D'or award goes to Cow striker Caldwell Francisco, who scored once in the finals to claim the Golden Toe with 14 goals, one goal clear from the rest of the field.

Without further ado, the hardware will now be distributed to their rightful owners.

We now have 24 entries, making an even 4 teams in each Group. I withdrew my own team since it just completed it's first season and would get destroyed by all of you. If we get additional entries before the 7pm deadline, a group or two may need to go to 5 teams. We'll see.

The Shield of the Cow's title defense starts now. Mooo!

The Group Stage is now underway so feel free to start scheduling. The time frame for Group games to be scheduled is through the 27th. You'll play a home and away against each opponent, so you'll be sending and receiving a challenge with each team in your group.

Here's a good rule of thumb - If you receive an incoming challenge in the same slot you have sent an outgoing challenge, please accept the incoming challenge and re-issue your own. If you receive multiple incoming challenges in the same slot, choose one ASAP to give the team you auto-declined as much time as possible to issue a new request.

Spread your outgoing challenges out. There are 12 days in the Group State to schedule. Slot 10 is as good as Slot 1. If everybody uses slots 1, 2 and 3, there will be a traffic jam.

Make sure you are challenging the correct team. There are a lot of teams with similar names. You can always copy/paste the user ID from the participating teams list. There might be several teams with similar names but every ID is unique.

OK, everyone. It's time to lace up your cleats. Good luck and show no mercy. Goal differential is a tiebreaker.

Just a clarification my username is mistyped - it's actually dw172300... Sorry, if I could go back to 2005 and pick something simpler, I would.

Thank you, I'll change it immediately and send a sitemail. I caught two other typos like that yesterday.

I should have known it didn't look right since I was in the same conference with you 100 years ago at Kent State. I just rejoined Naismith at South Florida.

You won a National Title at Ohio? Damn, lol. Congrats!
6/15/2022 5:13 PM (edited)
Thanks man - an undefeated National Champion at that! It was one of those seasons where everything just sort of fell into place.
6/15/2022 4:12 PM
There has already been a flurry of activity in the first 24 hours with 33 Group Stage games out of the 72 total having already been scheduled, including every game for Group E...which makes my job very easy. The first games are today and stretch out through the 25th.

Just so there is no confusion, there were several instances where more than one home game was scheduled between two teams. Unless I hear from both coaches...and they both agree to the same thing...the first game (earliest date) will count for the Group Stage table and the subsequent game (or games) will be just for fun. I understand that maybe multiple challenges were sent to assure at least one game got scheduled. I have done it myself.

Keep those Group Stage games coming.
