Since we have ALOT going on this season, I wanted to make things alot easier and break things down a bit.

Good Luck all the teams this season... See you out on the field!

Best of 3 determines the winner.

So instead of you playing 8 different teams in prelims you play 4 teams, and all 4 "matches" consist of the best of 3 format. First one to win 2 games wins that match.

So if you go undefeated in your matches, you are 4-0, whereas before if you went undefeated in prelims you would be 8-0.

Thank you so much for helping explain.

Squattingdog: The other part too is that you play a min of 8 matches (you vs 4 teams, twice each) or a max of 12 matches (you vs 4 teams 3times each).

I have a sample sced laying around, I will try to find it and post it for those not sure. Remember it is a best of 3 from each of the 4 teams you play.


I really hopes this helps.

How come D4 and D5 is still mixed together? I never understood two divisions being put together and it doesn't really seem fair for the lower division teams.

First, the biggest part of mixing was because there were never enough teams of any one division to hold the division and give out large prizes. Example - lets say 20 teams sign up for the D4/D5 division and we give out $1000 in prizes. Now, lets say we split it and there are 10 teams for D4 and 10 for D5. The income did not change, so then we would have to split the prizes and they would be lower for both.

The other issue is quite a bit of players are promoted from D5 to D4 either during the season or at the end of a season alot faster because the move up required amount of points is pretty low. We also found the D4 division and D5 division skills are close together. The D4's and D5's are all competitive with each other. Remember - there was a time there was only 3 divisions.

That is correct. It is D4/D5 and D3... No D2's allowed this season. That was a big request from D3 teams, was a D3 only division with no D2's.
