>>How to Play!<<

Current Week: Week 2 is locked in! Week 3 teams will lock in on Wednesday at 17:00:00 UTC.

Hey all and Merry Christmas!

I had the idea weeks ago that I wanted to revive fantasy cubing, so I did. I've been spending weeks since then playing around with point formulas, learning mysql, waiting for long queries to finish, analyzing data, writing javascript, discussing how fantasy cubing will work with my awesome beta testers and now I'm announcing it to all ya'll.

You can view the how to play doc here. The doc is open for commenting so if you have suggestions you want to make, you can.

This system will be much different than the 2014 system and I hope it's just as fun if not more.

The biggest change is that it's moving from an annual system to a weekly system (this is the same system some fantasy sports like fantasy movies works).

I hope you all will enjoy this version of fantasy cubing this year and I promise I will maintain it longer than 2015 was. I'm designing this system to be completely automated so it still should run if I get hit by a bus.

Please leave feedback, I'll welcome it as I'm trying to design the best system I can.

Friday-Thursday seems like one of the worst choices for the time span. Like fantasy football will start on Tuesday giving you a few days to pick your team. Plus some competitions (nationals worlds, will run into two weeks as well which I think would be bad. Maybe starting Tuesday ending Monday would be a lot better.

Just finished my team, thoughts? Had a hard time picking Side Events. I'm also curious if cubers competing in the same event twice during a week will have their points stack. I'm sure there are world class cubers who sometimes attend 2 comps over a weekend, so this would be a factor to consider.

After making my team for this week, it seems like big bld is pretty underpowered. It might just be a bad week for big bld, or I and misunderstanding the system and will be corrected when results are posted. Might be something to buff though.

Also would it be possible to make team selections private until they are finalized.
