It’s week 1, also known as the week 40% of you realized you’d made a huge mistake in selecting Darnell. Time to remedy that.
Welcome back, everyone! Did drafting Darnell drop a deuce on your Pick-4 team? Change your team in the comments below and get a fresh start. Once episode 2 airs, your teams are locked.
Individual scoring table
The big scoring question this week revolved around that first tribal council. How do we score a tie? Fortunately, the Founding Fathers of the Purple Rock Survivor Fantasy League wrote a very robust scoring system document. And when these sorts of gray areas arise, we do the most fair thing: the Purple Rock staff argues about it, and the loudest voice wins. So here, dear friends, is the ruling of the Purple Rock Fantasy League Supreme Court on this issue:
The official rules state that “VTEP points are awarded when your player casts a vote- or participates in a split vote plan- that successfully snuffs someone else’s torch.” Since everyone not named Darnell cast at least one vote in that tribal council for Darnell (whose torch was snuffed), everyone not named Darnell gets a VTEP. The court has spoken.
Otherwise, the scoring was easy- 3 points for Brains for winning the challenge, 2 points for Beauty for coming in second. Your week 1 scoreboard:
Since you can change your team up until the second episode airs (and a lot of you still have Darnell, so you should), it would be useless for me to post team scores here. Next week, when the teams are locked, you’ll see everyone’s team scores here.
Unlike Pick-4, rosters here are locked. And your early leader is TiminSoCal, who had two Brains tribe members. Tough break for ebolamonkey84, who has an uphill battle from here on out. He can take solace in the fact that his team has already scored 2 points, and thus cannot tie the all-time lowest Champions League score- 0 points by bassmanxvi (truly a remarkable achievement).
It’s a little crowded at the top in the Outcast League. But Count Bulletsula is feeling the pain of drafting the first boot.
That’s the scores for this week. Don’t forget to put in any requests for roster changes in the comments, and good luck to all of you (except those of you I’m competing against in Champions League).
