Interaction During GotY
There will be an interactive element during the daily release of the awards. You'll need to pay attention to this space to make sure you maximize your chances!
Every game's point total will be calculated based on the following criteria:
A single game can only win once within a single category.
Due to the non-structured nature of guest lists, each game on their list will be afforded 30 points. This excludes any and all games that are off their main list and listed as something along the lines of "honorable mentions".
The point total for each game will then be modified based on what slot you put it in as follows:
So for example, if a game got 100 points total and was in your 1 spot, you'd get the full 100 points while if it were in your number 5 spot you'd get 20 points.
In the event of a tie, the three tie breaker games will be used to determine the winner. with the scale of 100%, 75%, 50% for 6th, 7th, and 8th. If there is STILL a tie, whomever first posted their picks will be the winner. If you notice you have identical picks with someone else who is before you, you can DM me and change your picks ONE TIME. So make certain whatever changes you make don't make you identical to anyone else. Also be sure to make those changes to your post here so your edit time reflects when this change was made.
All scoring rules can be changed but I'll refrain from doing so unless there's a really good argument for it.
I've created a shared document (view only) that lists everyone's picks and their current standings. As the GotY lists haven't started posting yet the scores are placeholders but you should get a good idea of how it will work. I will update the "Games" sheet as the site is updated and you should be able to check how you're doing pretty easily.
ONLY SUBMISSIONS ON THIS PAGE PLEASE
Keep all discussion about your fantasy picks or whatnot on the discussion page. I need this thing to be as clean as possible for whatever hell spreadsheet I build to keep track of scores.
