MBL Eliminator “Madness” - S45
First off, congratulations to our defending champ, DarkBrawler12, for winning the S44 MBL Eliminator. Another shout out to Pricy, MBL Raiders, for providing this season’s Eliminator prize. I have decided to continue the pick’em style for this season, but to add more improvements. Since it is March, I figured why not have some fun with Eliminator and mash it together with March Madness. Here is a summary about how the season will go:
Weeks 1-7: Playing field
Just like March Madness, this is the “round of 64”. You pick 3 teams per week, and once you pick those teams you lose the ability to choose them for the duration of the round. Since the weeks are shorter this round, if you go 0-3 in 1 week, you are eliminated.
Once week 7 is finished, the “Elite 8” will be determined. 2 entrants with the longest win streaks with automatically have spots in the elite 8. If you have a 0-3 week, but also have the longest win streak, you are not eligible for the next round due to your elimination. The 6 other spots will be determined by record.
Elite 8 Entrants: Motor, Jdotpete, NTrain56, LipRipper34, Brandon_73625, DarkBrawler, KFish32, and XslamfistX.
Weeks 8-11: Elite 8
The elite 8. Now we get into the nitty gritty. The 8 entrants will pick 4 teams a week, and like in the “Playing Field”, once you pick a team, you cannot pick them again. If you go 0-4 in 1 week, you are eliminated. The top 4 record from this stage will go on to the “Final 4”.
Status: LAST WEEK
Weeks 12-15: Final 4
The final 4. These entrants will pick 5 teams a week, and once they pick a team they are not allowed to re pick that team. If you go 0-5 in 1 week, you are eliminated. The top 2 records will go to the “Eliminator Bowl”.
Week 16-17: Eliminator Bowl
These final teams will do a whole week pick’em for the final 2 weeks. The entrant who has the best record after Week 17 will be named champion of the S45 MBL Eliminator Madness.
