As you may notice, I have taken the liberty to shuffle the pods around a bit this week in an attempt to spread out the points a little bit. One of the first changes you have noticed is that the ‘Phantom Match’ to even out the league numbers is now in the Top Tier pod. The thought behind this is that if the Phantom Player does well, and 2-0s the pod, I would rather the points come from players at the top, instead of the players at the bottom.
I have also taken liberties to move the rest of the Pods around a bit, to try to avoid having people play the same players week in and week out. I am considering playing around with some other seeding methods, but for now, I am doing my best to shake it up and players a chance to earn points fairly.
Weekly Point Bonus
As you will see in the Standings, I have been giving away 3 points a week just for registering. It is no secret that I have been giving people some leeway when it comes to registering, but as of this upcoming week (April 2nd), the only way you will earn your 3 points is if your registration email is time stamped prior to 3:00 pm EST. Any late entries will result in losing the free points. This means you can easily register at any point this week. You can change your deck up until your first match of the week, so just edit the deck you post after you send the link. See pic above as to how I do my placeholders.
