Replay Team Championship - ASK US ANYTHING

Had it been scored by simply adding a teams weekly finishes and not team points it would look like this right now.

Closer throughout.

Many ties going into elimination.

Maybe consider for next time?

I understood the scoring system going into the championship but did not think for a minute my teams consistency of finishing 22-19-21 would get us knocked out the 24 without one of us making a top tier finish in any single game (of the 9 so far) played.

I really thought we had a chance going into this.

You still have a chance. One good week will do it, and there’s a week left.

I appreciate the best wishes, but the numbers just don’t add up.

Like all 3 of us would have to finish in the top 9 or something to that effect.

We were instructed to just “play for fun” this upcoming week.

Not complaining at all, I sincerely wish you all good luck.

Every game was tough, I happened to sit at tables with fantastic players.

And by the way…

That was a great finish @ Group C this past weekend…

Play went from (somewhat) normal to insanity within a minute!

Awesome fight!

@heyortin ,
Altho I like your hypothetical numbers, the team finish each week was skew’d by the formula applied before team scores were merged. Since complete results of each bracket are not available, we cannot use your scoring system to determine current actuall points getters.

week 1 you have my team @ 32nd , but our finishes were 23rd, 24th, and 27th. If raw scoring as you indicate was used all the way through, that would put my team prolly 25th, not 32nd , for week 1 … so that adjustment would need to be made, before you can then do it on a team basis.

As SunPowerGuru said, 1 good week and you’re in basically, but thats how its gonna be come playoff time, each of the 3 weeks any team still in, is facing the same boat you’re facing now … have a good week and you advance, because the formula is used for each player , not each team. Personally I see no reason for the formula come playoff time, but hey our team has a contingency plan of attack for that, we will be prepared. ( if we make the playoffs )

Week 4 should be interesting as some teams will be more agressive needing that good finish, as other teams sit back and watch because they don’t need xtra points… to those teams who just stay away from the big battles because they just need an average finish… Once the playoffs start I bet we see much more agressive play, because its basically go big or go home…

I do hope future Team challanges use a much more fair points system, so that the team aspect is the focus, not any 1 individule players’ finish. 1 point per player, per finishing posistion, combined for a team score…sounds pretty good…perhaps a bonus for top 3 teams, but not graduated bonus down the line.

@heyortin ,
1st place is worth 6558 per player … thats a possible 19,674 points available for any 1 team, week 4 … while it may be tough to make it, I wouldn’t say u have no chance…

In round 4 I believe the top 6 teams will make it extremely difficult for all the other teams , because they have nothing to lose . On the other hand the bottom 20 teams will probably do the same thing because they can capitalize on the point system . The teams in 16th to 20th will have to be very careful .lf we make the playoffs our approach will totally change .

I think u should have said the top 7 teams b/c I know for a fact that The Lady and the Tramps are in this to win it PERIOD lol

Sorry my mistake , it should read : I believe the top 5 teams will …….

Is it possible to have a teammate sub for you if you cannot play?

Looks like nobody got a answer for that one , personally I don’t think so . My worry is that for some reason a team mate is unable to play an all points is needed .

I think the answer is no too. Replay staff live in the UK, so they are sleeping now. Be patient, they will provide an official answer.

I found this info on the RTC - How It Work
Additionnal Notes:
- If a player misses a tournament, the player will score 0 for the team on that week
- No substitute or joker allowed. Teams are locked in for the duration of the event.

Hope this answers your question.

In the RTC we are TEAM MEMBERS each player scores on a individual base , afterwards points are added up to give a team total.In games like baseball ,cricket etc. you have TEAM MATES where you perform as a group and score on the same score sheet. The score system is based on the latter format . Still a great competition GL

Sure hope this comes around again! I loved the tone at the tables, and I loved making new friends and solidifying former relationships. Dude and the Dudettes did our darndest and will do that again when opportunity arises.
Thanks for the fun.

I hope so too and I really hope the dates and times for the next one are announced wayyyyyy earlier so can plan schedule in outside life to corespond and not have to skip it like I did this time, Was no way I could have played on the first day of it. Looks like a very fun tourney.

Totally agree with Jan and Randy, this has been such fun and some great sportsmanship and humour at the tables. A special thanks to Golden Donkey for organising this and to my Untouchable team mates for their support. Roll on the quarter finals!

The tournament made me smile a little, now my face is sore.

Overall, it’s been somewhat more fun than going to the dentist, thanks!

My team, Molon Labe, is on through to the quarters. We only finished 2nd, due, no doubt, to some flaw in the RNG. The quarter finals should be painfully brutal, so I am looking forward to them with a level of excitement that’s making me consider finding a good psychiatric center.

There won’t be much to see in the quarter finals, so maybe you should all show up late. After the first break should be about right. I’ll see you then, ciao.

:rofl:

Just too make it through to the next is great , and I know that it is going to be no kindergarden party . Can just imagine the pressure and excitement at the tables .The built-up and anticipation for the next round will be awesome, 'm already thinking who will be at the starting table with myself . When another tourney like this is hosted i’m sure the entries will more than double .a Lot of players have regrets for not entering .
