RFG's Eliminator League Sign-Ups

This is just the sign up page for the contest, not to be confused with week 1 picks, I will put up that thread the day after the Super Bowl.

Hello, and welcome back to RFG's Eliminator League. Last year the game was a big success, and I'm hoping that this year will be even better. Here's how the game works... you will pick a driver that you either think will win, or has the best chace of just getting you a good total, or both. Just pick one driver, their points get accumulated, and then after two weeks both your picks for both weeks will get added up, the person with the single lowest score, gets eliminated, its that easy...

Well those were the rules last year, this year will be a bit different, where you must pick 2 drivers, and not just one each week... and this is bound to make things more interesting, here is how it will work...

Weeks 1-2: These will just be practice weeks, people that miss both these weeks w/o an excuse will be eliminated from the game, yet if everyone participates, nobody will be eliminated this first session, just for people to get used to the game and get rid of the inactives. There will still be bonuses for winning this session, this session you may keep the same drivers for both races. (I will allow people to sign up for the game before week 3, but week 3 is the sign up deadline.)

Weeks 3-14: Each week, you must just change your lineup, in other words, you can keep one of your two drivers the same, as long as you change the other one, (Ex.= Week 3: J.J. and Jeff Gordon... Week 4: J.J. and Mark Matin is acceptable) now the only exception is that if you use the same driver for 4 consectutive races, I will make you switch him out, just don't want someone picking J.J. for all 12 races.

Weeks 15-26: You must switch both your drivers every week, meaning you must pick 4 different drivers each segment.

Weeks 26-27: You can only switch one driver out, in addition, a bonus maybe thrown in. X amount of people will be eliminated!

Weeks 28-30: You may switch one or both of your drivers, like weeks 3-14, yet this is a 3 week peroid, if you switch away from a driver, you can't pick him again, in addition, a bonus maybe thrown in. X amount of people will be eliminated!

Weeks 31-36: You must use 10 different drivers throughout the whole contest, like weeks 15-26, in addition, a bonus maybe throw in. The champion will be crowned at the end!

I look forward to playing again next year, and trying to decipher your cryptic rules.
Hopefully everyone understands this, lol, because Section's 30 computers will blow up again trying to figure this out if you can't... I'll try to explain it more clearly if there are lot of questions. The X's will be determined once I find out how many people are signed up.

Obviously by the way this is set up, I will need at least 19 people to sign up, but the more the merrier, there is no limit to how many can join... well... maybe if 30 people join I may cut it off...

Bonuses work the same as last year, where the winner of each session gets +10 points, a handicap list will still be given, and will be made on the next blog, the only exception is that for the first session, all of the top 3 will get +10 points, and this will not apply during chase weeks. Bonus points will be given throughout the chase with picking winning drivers, and from weeks 15-26, a save will be in a play for anyone that may be eliminated if they are in the top 3 of average session finish.

The bonuses for the chase are the same as last year, and go like this:

The person whom picks the most winning drivers will get +10 points for all 3 sessions.

The person whom picks the 2nd most winning drivers will get +10 points for the first two sessions.

The porson whom picks the 3rd most winning drivers will get +10 points for the first session.

(All ties will round bonus points down one level, where if there is a tie for 3rd, none of those people will get bonuses.)

Count me in RFG (if there is room) - thanksWe haven't even gotten up to the minimum yet, and like I said, there is really no maximum... I may set the line at around 30, but I don't expect to get that many hits.

Count me in! Going for another top ten finish; or was it five? I forget.......and it seemed so important at the time! Tongue outLOL! Well last season you got a top 5, where you actually finished 4th, just outside the podium... so podium looks like your goal... as for me, my goal is to be like Jimmie and four-peat... or at least 2-peat.
