It’s time for the GGL Playoffs!
After six weeks of play, 12 teams have advanced to the Good Games League (GGL) post-season. At the end of the playoffs we will have our champions!
We’d also like to congratulate our Achieveable teams! These teams all received automatic bids to the postseason, regardless of their final records:
Many Average Newer Green Ones (1000 GrifPoints!);Straight Outta Cheeze; What the Grif; The Ways and Means Committee;
Here is the playoff group for this season:
The neutral host for the third game will be chosen by the team captain whose team has:
Teams are expected to make reasonable accommodations to ensure the chosen neutral host can perform his or her duties. If the team who is to choose the neutral host cannot find one, the other team captain may choose the neutral host. If both team captains agree, the match may be played without a neutral host.
If a playoff series is played between a team based in North America and a team based in Europe, the North American team will be allowed to choose the host or neutral host for game one, and the European team will be allowed to choose the host or neutral host for game two. If the series goes to a third game, the normal rules for choose a neutral host for the third game will apply.
Playoff seeds were determined by taking the records of all teams as they stood at the conclusion of the regular season. Teams with fewer than five reported games were disqualified from the post-season.
Of the remaining teams, the team from each division with the best record was granted a top seed. These teams were sorted based on win percentage, then goal efficiency (goals per game out of the total number of possible goals per game). Teams that were in the same division but had the same record were sorted based on head-to-head record, then goal efficiency in head-to-head matches, then goal efficiency in common games.
Of the undefeated teams, teams with six or more on-court wins were placed ahead of teams with fewer than six on-court wins. The top seeds in the playoffs were division winners.
Next, teams with a win percentage of .690 or higher were seeded based on win percentage, then goal efficiency. These were the wildcard teams.
Finally, teams with more than 700 GrifPoints were seeded into the playoff bracket if they did not already qualify as either a division winner or a wildcard team. These “Achieveable-only” teams were sorted by total GrifScore and then win percentage and then placed in the bottom of the playoff bracket.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions. See you on the court!
