"2. Playoffs - This is the one contest where you actually can't choose if you want to play. Participation in the weekly game picks is mandatory and only the top 16 of the league will be eligible. Every player will be assigned with a seed based on their regular season performance and thrown into one-on-one duels in each knockout round. People who failed to finish in the top 16 during the regular season will have the option to participate in a consolation round with very similar rules. The defending champion in the prestigious playoffs is amp316 who won the contest for the second time last season."
So it's like the Europa League for those that miss the playoffs? I'll join this pool or what it's called.
The Europa League is still a respected contest with prize money and everything else, only on a smaller scale than the Champions League. The consolation round in this prediction league won't get its results posted in the first three posts of this thread, so it's merely an opportunity to keep predicting the outcomes of games while trying to be better than the assigned opponent.
Both the playoffs and the consolation round require that you've made at least 230 game picks during the regular season, so the pool you will have to join is Weekly Game Picks and then you need to keep participating for four straight months. That should be clear enough, but feel free to ask if you still have any questions.
