Hi all,

Whilst it only reached a small field of entry on site (and had it's flaws), I still thought the recent World's fantasy was a really good complement to the tournament. Which got me thinking that some of you would like to play a season long tournament, featuring the bigger events on the calendar.
With that said I'm going to be running a SCS Premier League over the course of 2022, culminating in the final event being the 2023 World Championship. I haven't got anything fancy set up yet, in terms of a google/excel entry form (I'm not too familiar with being able to develop something so that may be a work in progress), so it will be simple data entry for at least the early part of the season.

The fixture of the season will be as follows (fixture only announced until October) and throw off in just over 2 weeks at the Ladbrokes Masters.

Here is the current tournament bracket. Note: Whitlock is a replacement for Noppert

This is the intended scoring method for the Ladbrokes Masters. Entries can be simply posted in the thread or via PM to myself. If a participant chooses to PM their entry it will be disclosed after lockout has closed. Due to Covid, it would be wise to leave posting an entry until at the earliest Thursday 27th (however an early indication of participation would be encouraged and helpful). If I get something fancy set up in the meantime then I will post it here to enable easier entry.

A few things of note when team selecting:
*Player cost is simply PDC Order of Merit earnings. (This will be the method used all season long)
*Team size is 6 for the 1st/2nd round comprising 2 top 8 players and 4 remaining players (salary cap total $3mil). For those unfamiliar, top 8 players have a round 1 bye. QF/SF/Final stage team size is 4 players of any choice (again salary cap total $3mil)
*In the event that an entry exceeds value and the entry remains unamended at lockout, the lowest cost player exceeding value will be automatically transferred to the lowest cost player that doesn't exceed value. (eg a team 50K over budget that has selected White as cheapest player has no alternative selection. If Searle is next cheapest player he would be automatically substituted by Dolan who is the cheapest alternative to fit into salary constraints). Within time constraints of lockout, I will PM participant if I notice an over budget entry, but it falls on the participant themselves to calculate the cost of their team before submitting.
*Trading period will be announced after the completion of the 2nd round, and ahead of the final day's action. 2 free transfers awarded, with additional transfers charged at -4 (same format as the Worlds)
*Similar scoring to that of the World Championship, with the addition of 6 bonus points awarded for starting (and finishing with) the tournament winner, and 3 bonus points for trading in the tournament winner.
*Captain x2 and VC x1.5 for both rounds of the tournament and all avenues of scoring in the chart. Changes in C/VC may occur during trading period. Please be clear and concise of choices. Default captaincy will revert to highest and 2nd highest valued players if not stipulated.
*Should there be a withdrawal during a tournament, that is the luck of the draw, and no replacement player or points will be awarded.

I will update the charts should there be any further player withdrawals prior to the 1st event.
I intend to advertise event #2 Cazoo Premier League once the field is set, and immediately after the conclusion of the Ladbrokes Masters.

I know that's a fair bit to take in, but I'd rather be clear on the expectation of participants, than have a situation arise where someone feels cheated. Any questions, ask away or PM me. The more the merrier so all are welcome.

Regards,
Andrew
Fantastic concept @The Banker which should make the 2022 season even more exciting and fills our thirst for more fantasy sports.

Just giving this a bump in case anyone has missed it. I will be running the SCS Premier League for 2022. A fantasy competition that will feature major events and conclude at the 2023 World Championships. Below is the intended fixture which is subject to changes beyond October.

A few things of note when team selecting: (Bolded are changes from last weeks post)

*Trading period will be announced after the completion of the 2nd round, and ahead of the final day's action. 2 free transfers awarded, with additional transfers charged at -4 (same format as the Worlds). Trading period has now been changed to simply selecting a new 4 player team at the conclusion of the 2nd round, still salary capped. Found trading was going to be quite messy.
*Similar scoring to that of the World Championship, with the addition of 5 bonus points awarded for initially selecting and holding the tournament winner throughout the event. and 3 bonus points for trading in the tournament winner. No bonus points awarded for trading in the winner at the conclusion of the 2nd round.
*Captain x2 and VC x1.5 for both rounds of the tournament and all avenues of scoring in the chart, except for the tournament winner bonus points. Changes in C/VC may occur during trading period. Please be clear and concise of choices. Default captaincy will revert to highest and 2nd highest valued players if not stipulated.
*Should there be a withdrawal during a tournament, that is the luck of the draw, and no replacement player or points will be awarded.

There will be no more changes to scoring, only the field is subject to change from this point on.

Lastly, the tournament bracket to help with team construction.
