OBBL Premiership playoffs

Recommended Posts

Congratulations are due to Gnarghull Gnash and Boredom, who have both clinched a playoff spot in the 2017 OBBL Premiership season two!. With two games remaining, the Gnash cannot be knocked out of the playoffs, sitting on sixteen league point...great job, @jollyork! Boredom (my gawd, what a [big bad swear word]ty name) is in a similar boat, with one game remaining they are safely sitting atop the Orcidas division. The Zharr'Thrak Seahawks can reach them potentially, but Boredom has the tie-breaker for division winner.

Playoff tie-breakers are head-to-head record, followed by in-division winning percentage, as they do in the NFL.

With only a few games left, the play off picture is nearly set. In the Bugmans Division, regardless of final game result, @jollyork's Gnarghull Gnash is the division champion. What isn't clear is who will face the Gnash in the Bugman Division play-off; with a draw or win, @drod's Dead Henchmen will have the honor. With a draw, the Henchmen will have fourteen points, and a tie-breaker over @savion47's Mouse House rejects. Speaking of the Rejects,  They need a win in their final game vs @Vraeden's Dungeon Degenerates to reach fourteen points...basically, a Dead Henchmen loss and Mouse House win leads to a Gnash vs. Rejects semi-final; any other result gives the division a Gnash vs Henchmen semi-final.

Who will they face? Well, that's complicated, too! In the Orcidas Division, @Frostitute's Boredom has secured the division title; however, who they will face in the championship semi-final is cloudy. Currently, @michaels's Calamitous Intent sit in second place, with thirteen points after eight games played. The wild card in this race is 2017 OBBL Season One champions, @kb10r...his Garblat Greenskins have one more game remaining, and with a win will be at fifteen points, and firmly in second place in the division. With a draw in their final game, the Greenskins would sit on thirteen points, and tied with @michaels's Nurgle. A quick review of the tie-breakers shows that Calamitous Intent defeated Garblat in round two, giving them the first tie-breaker. It's win or go home for the Greekskins!

In a weird twist of fate, guess who @drod and @kb10r face in their round eight game? EACH OTHER! To summarize, @kb10r needs a win, or his Orcs are out of the play-off picture...similarly, the Dead Henchmen need a win or draw, or a Rejects loss or draw, to advance. 

EXCITING!

Want this to get more complicated? I was just (rightfully) informed that if both @drod and @savion47 lose, there will be a tie between the Dead Henchmen and @Burk's Southland Reavers...! Since they drew in round one (head-to-head is tie-breaker one), and would have the same in-division winning percentage (.500, tie-breaker two), we would go to a third tie-breaker, which is winning percentage vs common opponents. Guess what? Both will have played the same in-division opponents, and by the end of round eight, both will have played one common inter-division opponent, @kb10r! Burk defeated kb10r's Greenskins earlier in the season, meaning if both drod and savion47 lose, Burk gets second place in Bugman's...phew!

With one game remaining, we have one side of the OBBL semi-finals confirmed. @kb10r's Garblat Greenskins defeated @drod's Dead Henchmen, 2-0. The Greenskins will face @Frostitute's Boredom in the Orcidas Division playoff, with the winner to face the Bugman's Division playoff winner.

It's very unfortunate that drod's first loss of the season happens in the last game, and that lost keeps him out of the final playoff position in the Bugman's division. Congrats go out to drod, who after voluntary promotion from the Super League last season, nearly went undefeated...great job!

The final game will determine Gnarghull Gnash's opponent, as @Vraeden and @savion47 still have to play the final game. If @savion47 wins, he's at 14 points and clearly second place in Bugman's behind the Gnash. If the game is a draw or if the Degenerates win, then the Gnash will face @Burk's Southland Reavers, who have the third tie-breaker over the Dead Henchmen (wins vs shared opponents; Burk has four, and drod has three).

We have our Bugman's division playoff set! Due to unfortunate circumstances, the final game of the season will go unplayed...this means Gnarghull Gnash's opponent is between the Southland Reavers and the Dead Henchmen, both on thirteen points.

First tie-breaker: head to head; these two teams drew in round one

Second tie-breaker: winning percentage vs divisional opponents; both teams have three wins against their six Bugman's opponents

Third tie-breaker: winning percentage vs common opponents; both teams faced seven common opponents, the six other Bugman's Division teams, and the Garblat Greenskins. Since both teams had three wins vs common division opponents, it comes down to their results vs the Greenskins...Southland defeated Garblat in round four, and the Henchmen lost to Garblat in round eight, giving the Reavers four wins versus common opponents out of seven games, and Dead Henchmen three wins out of seven games. The Southland Reavers win the playoff position by third tie-breaker.
