    Welcome all back to the cheerful anarchy of the Crunched Cup

    This is where all the teams that failed to reach the playoffs in the Crunch Cup can go to play for the coveted "Golden Spoon" - prove that you truly are the first loser!

    The Crunched Cup will go on alongside with the Crunch Cup Playoffs, and will be a single eliminations type tournament - a playoff of sorts, with applicants seeded randomly.

    All teams that have played in the current cup are available, and any teams that were reserves for the current cup can fill out the Crunched Cup if it is really needed.

    Playing in the Crunched Cup is completely legit and allows your team to continue in the next Crunch Cup. (Your team is still allowed the two Crunch Them All games between the Crunched Cup and the next Crunch Cup. Your team is not allowed to play any games between the Crunch Cup and the Crunched Cup, though)

    Applications are non-binding, so statements of interest are appreciated.

    It is largely a "first come, first serve" scenario when it comes to applications - but stunty teams are accepted first, then teams that ended up last or second last in their division, then everyone else in order of application. Reserve teams are only admitted if it is needed to round out the competition to a good sized playoff.

    Confused?
    tl/dr - if you want to play more games after the regular season, but think you might not reach the playoffs, post in this thread.

    I am making a declaration of my interests in this. Seeing as I still have 0 points with 2 games left to go, I don't think its possible for me to reach the playoffs.

    No. They go in parallel, and you are not allowed into the CrC if you have managed to reach the CC playoffs. (And only teams playing in the current CC are allowed into the CrC)

    No, because it would be the same team. The Crunched Cup is an alternative to the play-offs, but there will also be CTALE soon if you're looking for more action. That's a weekly tournament with no play-offs at the end.

    EDIT: Whoops, was beaten to it.

    Note that CTALE only accepts teams fresh from the CTA (or complete rookies) - so at most six games in CTA for teams wanting to run the CTALE.

    But that doesn't matter for this thread, which is for CrC prospects, whether we hit sixteen or thirtytwo applicants.

    Last season the possibility was floated, and I'm pretty sure the verdict was no unless they were short of numbers, and then it would be open to teams knocked out in the first round of the playoffs. So maybe an outside chance, but wouldn't bank on it.

    Not even an outside chance.

    It's been raised several times when "first round playoff failures want to join" but the ruling has always been pretty clear. "No".

    What has nearly flown has been different teams from elsewhere being let in, and teams from the "league reserves" have actually gotten to play in the CrC, but no team getting into the CC Playoff will get to play in the CrC playoff (the same season)

    The Golden Spoon must be earned... by losing in the first round of CC... no play off guys ! :D

    Dreamy... seeing how stunty teams seem popular in CC itself... we could do a stunty league instead of CTALE one day... or in parallel...

    The option is there for sure. We already had one "Goblins Only" league. But better put that one up for a vote with suggested rules or theme.

    For the Crunched Cup I'll put the Bombers in for a place in the line. Nothing is guaranteed about a playoff spot what with Barmution next, so better have a backup plan.

    Well if Ken loses his last 2 it is statistically possible for him to miss the play-offs...but I agree, get out of here you over achiever.
