Playoff Scenarios
« on: October 14, 2016, 01:55:31 PM »
We are only two days away from knowing who makes the playoffs and who doesn't in our closest ever finish to a WDL season yet.  Only 3 measly points separate 1st place from 5th place with only one team guaranteed (TDT) and one team out (CDC).  At this point the most important game to the standings is TDT vs GPS as it has the biggest impact to which 4 teams are in and what other team joins CDC on the "better luck next season"  bench.

TDT  - CLINCHED
  • Guaranteed playoff spot.
  • Win in 2 or 3 rounds guarantees a 1st place finish.
  • Worst finish for TDT is 3rd place.

SXP
  • A win guarantees a playoff position.
  • Can finish 1st with a TDT loss or draw AND SXP wins.
  • Can be eliminated if SXP loses in 2 AND SUC/SDM draw and GPS wins, draws, or loses in 3.

SUC
  • A win guarantees a playoff position.
  • Can finish 1st with a 2 round win AND a TDT loss in 2 AND a SXP loss,draw, or win in 3.
  • Can be eliminated if a loss in 2 rounds AND GPS wins, draws, or losses in 3.
  • Can be eliminated if a loss in 3 rounds AND GPS wins or draws.

SDM
  • A win guarantees a playoff position.
  • Can finish 1st with a 2 round win and a TDT loss in 2 AND a SXP loss or draw.
  • Can be eliminated if they draw if SXP loses in 3, draws, or wins AND GPS wins.
  • Can be eliminated if they lose in 3 if GPS loses in 3*, draws or wins AND SXP wins, draws, or loses in 3.
  • Can be eliminated if they lose in 2 if GPS loses in 3, draws or wins.

GPS
  • A win guarantees a playoff position.
  • Can finish 1st with a 2 round win AND a SXP win in 3, draw, or loss AND a SUC/SDM win in 3 or draw.
  • Can be eliminated if they draw if SXP draws or wins AND SUC/SDM draw.
  • Will be eliminated if they lose UNLESS they lose in 3 AND SUC/SDM game finishes in 2 rounds

CDC
  • Is eliminated from playoffs.
