1. First contest games are exactly a month away, so I am re-activating the pool and contest website today. This is our 12th contest based mostly here in OT and friends OT'ers have invited, holy fuck are we getting old.

    The contest will be run exactly the same as last year, everyone seems to be in a good groove with it and knows how to use OFP.

    If there are any n00bs interested in joining, we always welcome new blood. You can play at levels of 50/200/500 but must join the lower contests to enter the higher one, so total is 50, 250, or 750. Please read the full rules on the linked site and then come back and ask questions if you have any.

    We will be selecting 6 games each week (any mix of pro/ncaa) for 18 weeks for a total of 108 selections. Contest weeks run Tuesday to the following Monday. Week 1 of the contest is first week of college games and NFL preseason week 4. Week 18 is the final reg season of NFL and bowl games thru Jan 1. Winners are selected on total win% (not total number of wins).

    I will be running a mobile-friendly site again that has registration and roster/payout info along with the formal standings for the contest (OFP does not track missed games so I have to keep the official standings separately).

    Feel free to ask any questions or make fun of ACC fans below.

  7. for some reason I cant paste images from the site anymore but Eagleseye13 was 72-32-4 for 69.2%. 2nd place (and winner of 200/500) was Boangtao who was 66-41-1 for 61.7%, by far the largest disparity we've ever had by a runaway winner.

  16. side bets can he head to head or over/under picks right or over/under percentage at contest end. for future reference to those who want to side bet..everything requires a quote from me and amounts no more than 200 depending on propositioner. some bets may require odds if unusually higher than norm..etc say starting 12-0 or something similar. those types would be 50-100 and paid out or added to EOM depending on games selected or record selected

    this only applies to side bets made w me

    While everyone loves a good side bet... its gonna be a tough sell for you after dropping like 70% last season lol.

    Im guessing you get zero takers.

    Oh, and this for me.

    Im still living on the dream that I can still win this after luckboxing a 2nd place like 10 years ago lol, so this might be there year I finally fire the 200.

    Add DONKWOOD to Rail
  22. In for 250, 750 pending on how many it gets. Also down for sidebets
    Add wab80 to Rail
  23. What's the payout structure in this thing?
    Add Camz to Rail
  24. try to run it like a MTT basically, believe we paid 7 spots in the main last year for 65(?) ppl. A cash will pay at least double (assuming no chop) and move up small steps at first and then be top heavy for 1-2-3 in the big contest.

    200 we usually have around 20 and do something like 10%-25-65. 500 has usually 10 and we do 20-80 or thereabouts. All depends on how many ppl we have at each level.
