Thanks for the suggestions, Josh! I agree our finals format could benefit from some changes.
1) Couldn't agree more. I'm not exactly sure why we have the play-in round. People ranked 9-12th play seven months to earn it, but can find themselves bumped to playing for B after two games. Likewise, I don't think someone ranked 16th should be playing for the A trophy. Also, no one gets eliminated, and 2/3rd of the league sits around while we shuffle ranks 9-16.
2) I'm onboard with this one too. I think A division used to be the top half, but now it's the top third. There are usually some pretty good players in 9-10th reaping upset points that I'm not sure they deserve. Maybe top 12 in A makes more sense?
3) Personally not a fan of this one, but it's a fine suggestion.
4) No strong opinion either way on double elimination.
