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 12 teams - this will be adjusted based on final number of participants each year)

The 12 teams will be split into 3 divisions of 4 teams, and it will be based on the standings the previous year (though will be based on average rank history in year one of H2H). 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
Division C = Remaining 4 Teams, the non playoff 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.

Each team vs each divisional team 3 times = 9 Weeks
Each team vs each non divisional team 1 time = 8 Weeks
ONE game vs divisional rival (1v4, 2v3) = 1 Week
ONE game vs each non divisional rival (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4) = 2 Weeks
ONE game vs Random Rival (determined by draw with other stipulations) = 1 Week
TOTAL of 21 Weeks

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.

The teams that are kicked out in the first round enter a Consolation Round for the final two weeks where they will compete for draft picks in their group. The winner will gain 5th pick in the lottery rounds; the runner up getting 6th pick; the 3rd place consolation team getting 7th; and the loser getting 8th.
