HEAD TO HEAD DETAILS

THE NEW COMPETITION FORMAT

One-Win Head-To-Head Format - Daily Roster Changes

Each week, you will either WIN, LOSE, or TIE based on your week overall across all stats, instead of a win/lose/tie per category (another option within H2H). This system is better for not padding wins and losses with blowout weeks. A win is a win is a win is a win. A loss is a loss is a loss.


THE DIVISIONS
(based on 14 teams - this will be adjusted based on final number of participants)

The 14 teams will be split into 3 divisions, and it will be based on the standings the previous year (though will be randomly selected in Year One of this new format - unless we get all 14 current members join; then it will be based on average rank history). We will have 1 division of 4, and 2 divisions of 5. This design is intended to push and build upon rivalries. More divisions are better as well, than say just 2, for playoff purposes.

Here's how each years divisions will be determined:

Division A = Top 4 teams after playoffs (The Final Four)
Division B = Remaining 4 playoff teams + Top Rank of those who did not make the playoffs.
Division C = Remaining 5 Teams


THE SCHEDULE

Each season is normally comprised of 22 weeks, but some years have 21. Every season has 3 weeks of playoffs no matter if 21 or 22.

Division A will face their own division 4 times in the season (12 games) and everyone else once (10 games). In a year with only 21 weeks, they will not face one divisional team.

Division B a C will face their own division 3 times (12 games) and everyone else once (9 games) + 1 cross division rank showdown (based on previous years standings): 1vs1, 2vs2, 3v3, 4v4, 5vs5.

THE PLAYOFFS

The top team in each division will be awarded top seeds. All other teams essentially enter a wild card race with the top of those remaining being the final 5 seeds. There will be 3 weeks of playoffs - 8 teams, 4 teams, championship - in final 3 weeks of the year.f
