RFG's Eliminator League Year 3

Welcome back to another year of RFG's Eliminator League, like last year, many of the rules will be the same, where you pick two drivers, the best getting bonus points and so on. The big difference this year, the new points system which I have great negative views against... but I will not go all raging about them, will just make the game a little different. Anyways, here are many of the rules that I cropped from last year:

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 have any lineup you want for both weeks, 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, and you can't use the same driver for all 3 weeks, 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!

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 differently as last year, due to the new points system, where the winner of each session gets +3 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 +3 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 +3 points for all 3 sessions.

The person whom picks the 2nd most winning drivers will get +3 points for the first two sessions.

The porson whom picks the 3rd most winning drivers will get +3 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.)

And one more new rule! Last year I had this as a bonus in the chase, this year, it will be an everday thing. Each week you must choose which driver of your two you believe will finish better than the other one, bolding your pick is reccomended, but if you don't, I will pick your first driver listed as your choice. No penalty if you get it wrong, but every race you get this right you get +2 points. Hopefully this will promote people making riskier decisions with handicap drivers and all.

Good luck to all that play this year!
