Everyone plays each other twice and there's no need for us to set an invisible playoff dividing barrier that would differentiate the regular season from the playoffs. What do you think about this samo?

Oh, for sure. The Top-6 "invisible playoff barrier" (for the benefit of those who don't study/memorize the Octagon Rules like it's the Koran or something) was established so an H2H team that finished rank 7th for the (then mandatory) H2H playoffs and was therefore in the lower bracket playing mostly bad/dead teams was precluded from any possibility of going 27-0 or something crazy against said awful teams and "technically" moving past a higher ranked team playing in the "upper" playoff group.

So, yes, no doubt it should just be full-season standings if going with the No Playoff option. ;-D


Samo, Im on board. ;-D Seriously disappointed you are not in the Champions league. :-t How dare you be the Floyd Mayweather to my Manny Pacquiao. !+)

Do you guys know any H2H leagues scored by cumulative wins percentage? Or is the Octagon the only league ever to employ such a system.

In all reality we are applying year end Roto standings to a H2H league. Great idea not widely accepted or used by the fantasy community. Seasoned and tested by the Octagon but remains a progressive idea entering the 5th season.

Yeah I do believe the Octagon is the first league to ever employ such a system. samo and I can only so much credit for it though -- gotta say that we're real lucky to have such a good group of forward thinkers who challenge us to make this as progressive of a league as possible. Always looking for new wrinkles to add to the league to make it better, so keep the ideas coming. Next year we're thinking about possibly adding auction drafts into the mix if things go well in the Cafe Auction league that geodbear is running. Expansion is also something we've been toying with as well but that may be looking too far ahead.
