5AF Fantasy F1 2018

Postby Shyster » Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:50 pm

Welcome to the second-annual 5AF Fantasy F1 league.

• The competition is open to all posters. Welcome aboard!
• You each have $40 million to spend on your team.
• You may select as many drivers as your budget allows. There is no advantage gained from not spending your entire budget.
• Teams do not have to be unique.
Rule change: You are selecting by driver. If a driver switches teams, your points earned will follow that driver to the new team. If a driver is replaced, you will no longer earn points for that driver.
• Each player must choose two Grand Prix weekends. This set must be unique if you have the same driver lineup as someone else. Rule change: These two weekends will earn double points only in the event there is a tie at the end of the season. In the event the inclusion of double points still results in a tie, the tiebreaker will follow the same pattern as the F1 drivers’ championship tiebreaker, which is the number of first-place finishes earned by all your drivers, then the number of second-place finishes, and so on.
• The points earned by your selected drivers are the same as the points earned by the F1 drivers’ championship (1st place - 25 points; 2nd -18; 3rd - 15; 4th -12; 5th - 10; 6th - 8; 7th - 6; 8th - 4; 9th - 2; 10th - 1).

Reply here with your driver selections and your unique set of two race weekends by 11:59pm on Friday, March 23rd . You may edit your selections up to that time.

So I decide to focus on points rather than potential winners this year. Frst race out, 1/3 of my drivers retire because wheel guns are hard. And it was my first multiplier race.

I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THIS WAS MY FIRST MULTIPLIER RACE AND I FINISHED IN FOURTH FRICKIN' PLACE

It would seem that I have chosen poorly.

I thought the multipliers weren't being added unless there was a tiebreak situation

That's what's funny about it. He's worried about being tied for first at the end. :lol:

Plenty of races left in the season, so it's a little early for buyer's remorse. (That said, I didn't go with the first lineup I came up with, and if I had I'd be in second place behind MR25 with 36 points.)
