#701 Tournament of Champions Q. How is rest issued in between rounds of the TOC?
  A. The only rest provided in between rounds of the TOC is if you knock off your competition in fewer games than your next round opponent. For example, if you sweep your first round opponent in 3 games but it takes your 2nd round opponent all five games to advance to the second round, your team will receive 2 games of rest. Rest is provided when the next round of the tournament is scheduled.
#767 Tournament of Champions Q. How are teams entered into a TOC?
  A. Teams entered into a tournament of champions are placed based on the value of their 25 active players at the conclusion of their league - this includes the value (not salary) of AAA players. This is the only fair way to place teams into tournaments due to the wide array of theme league options. Here is how that works.

Total Salary is the 25 +6 AAA players with the salaries of the AAA players being 200000, not their true value. The salaries of the AAA players will always be shown as 200000 and calculated using 200000 unless it is being put in a TOC and then if they are on the active roster, it will use their true value to be as fair as possible to the other teams in the league.

Active Salary is the salaries of the players on your active ML roster. These players can be AAA or normal players and is calculated as either their actual salary for normal players or 200000 for AAA players.

When it inserts a team into the TOC, it takes all of the players currently on the roster and checks their actual values. It works like the active salary, but instead of using 200000 for AAA prospects, it uses their true value.
#828 Tournament of Champions Q. How does fatigue work in the TOC?
  A. Fatigue works the same way in the TOC as it does in a SimLeague with one exception: the TOC begins as if it were the 26th game of the season where each player begins having used up a prorated percentage of their available plate appearances or pitches thrown.

For instance, a hitter had 500 plate appearances during the actual season. An additional 10% is added for padding, bringing him to 550 PA.

When the TOC is started, the first game is treated as game 26 and he begins having used up 25/162 of his plate appearances, or 85 plate appearances.

Pitchers work the same way for pitch count.
