ELITE BLACK SHEEP (Elite BS) - SEASON 18 (S68)

After a break of many seasons ELITE BLACK SHEEP (Elite BS) is back for a new season - SEASON 19 (S85). It will start when the new season starts next month but at the moment I just want to know how many are interested

ELITE BLACK SHEEP is a very simple game that involves a little bit of skill (maybe!) and a little bit of luck...

Elite Black Sheep is a prediction style game with a twist.

The GOAL in this game is to pick Elite managers who will finish high in races BUT are also picked less times for that race than other managers.
Sometimes the manager who finishes 12th to 15th (but chosen just once) will give you more points than the Elite manager who finishes 1st.


REGISTERING:

At the moment if you are interested I just need you to register. Simply post ##join in the thread..... T-t-t-that's all folks

Later once I know we have enough interest I will ask you to send your picks by PM to me before the deadline - Friday December 3rd @ 18:30 CET for FULL RACE 1 POINTS or Friday December 3rd between 18:30 - 20:00 CET for 50% Race 1 Points. Joining will still be possible after Race 1. You will choose your 4 Elite Managers before Race 2 and you will begin Race 3 with 1 SWAP Available.

Once we get started you MUST make at least 1 SWAP every 4 races. Deadline for making SWAPS each Race (after Race #1) is 20:00 CET on Race days.

I will send out reminders on each Race day, usually by 16:00 CET. If you prefer to NOT receive a reminder PM, please let me know.


RULES & SCORING METHOD

- You must select 4 Elite Managers by PM prior to Race 1.
- Each race, you may choose to SWAP an Elite manager thereby changing your roster of 4 Elite managers
- At a minimum, you must make a SWAP every 4 races to avoid penalties (see SWAPs below)

Scoring formula = (41-race position) / (1.75+number of times chosen) + (GPRO points * 0.15)

Hint: As can be seen by the scoring method, picks that score GPRO points (top 8) have an additional bonus.....however, if chosen by a large majority of the entrants, their value will still decrease. A manager finishing 10th-15th, but only chosen once MAY potentially score more than a manager finishing on the podium.

SWAPS

After every race, you may SWAP one (1) of your 4 picks but it is NOT necessary to do so EACH race.

If you do not make a SWAP in a given race (by choice or omission), you may make two (2) SWAPS in a later race. 2 SWAPS is the limit.

At the beginning of the Season, you will be able to make 2 SWAPS before Race 2. If you make 1 SWAP before Race 2, then you will still have 2 SWAPS available to use at a later date

You are required to make a SWAP at least once every 4 races. If you fail to make 1 SWAP every 4 races your point total will be penalised by 10%. 8 races without a SWAP will see you suffer a 20% penalty

Deadline for swaps is 20:00.00 CET on race day. No swaps accepted after that time!! HOWEVER, RACE 1 PICKS ARE DUE BY 18:30 CET for full Race 1 Points!

There must be a minimum of 15 players for Elite BS to run this season.


Thanks for playing, Good Luck and please have fun!

A special mention/thanks to Stuart F. who was co-creator of the scoring formula and to Kevin Abdalla who ran this for many seasons and posted the Google spreadsheet that I have hopefully correctly converted to Excel !!
