TLP Panther: Gold-capped Playoff Scenarios

**NOTE: These are NOT official

As we approach the final week of the OKLCS Gold-capped regular season, the playoff seeding starts to come into shape. First let's take a look at the schedule for Week 7:

Current Standings:

NG 6-0
TLP 5-1
RoG 4-2
LiT 2-4
PUG 2-4
EBRO 2-4
OU 2-4
BFX 1-5

Week 7:

EBRO vs RoG
BFX vs OU
LiT vs NG
PUG vs TLP

 

 

 

And finally here are the playoff scenarios for each team going into Week 7:

NG: Has secured the #1 Seed

TLP: Has secured the #2 Seed

RoG: Has Secured the #3 Seed

OU: Finishes 4th with WIN and PUG Loss

PUG: Finishes 4th win WIN and LiT Loss

EBRO: 4th with WIN and OU Loss and PUG Loss

LiT: 4th with WIN and OU Loss and EBRO loss

BFX: Eliminated from contention for playoffs

The above are the most straightforward scenarios should take care of all situations where there is a 2 way tie for 4th. Things get really messy if out of EBRO, LIT, BFX, and OU 3 of the teams win or if all 4 teams teams lose. At that point it is likely to come down to game W/L totals which are listed below.

LIT (6-8) - .428
EBRO (6-10) - .375
PUG (5-9) - .357
OU (4-9) -.308
BFX (3-11) - .214

Here are the scenario for 3 or 4 teams tied:

  • If OU, PUG, LiT, EBRO all lose creating 5 teams with a record of 2-5 LiT would get the 4th seed.(game win %)
  • If OU, PUG and LiT all win LIT will be the 4th seed.(game win %)
  • If OU, PUG and EBRO all win PUG will be the 4th seed(h2h over both)
  • If OU, LiT, and EBRO all win OU will be the 4th seed(h2h over both)
  • If PUG, LiT, and EBRO all win LiT will be the 4th seed(game win %)

This should take care of all of the scenarios for Week 7 of Gold Capped Playoffs. If I have something incorrect please let me know so I can correct it (it was a lot of math).
