Thanks for hosting Tyler! It was a lot of fun.

Here’s a list of how similarly everyone picked to me:
Me
Hokie Bros
PNW Power
YUUUP!
The Dream Team
Layth is Studying
Instant Regret
BRIAN GRIFFINS

Additionally, here’s a graph of how much value each pick was according to my system (I modified the last 3 picks to be the full amount of the bidding team’s remaining money):

We all generally should have bid more early on in the draft, I didn’t draft my first team until pick 17, so I could have done much better on that front. Pick 29 was team 2557, who I unfortunately missed out on because I had just drafted 114 and was updating my notes.

Is that lowest dot 1983? That was a steal.

The lowest dot was 2557. 1983 was the 16th pick

Could you post the order team’s were auctioned. I would like to see who you thought the most under and over valued teams were, but I can’t seem to find this information.

Sure, here you go

Thank you everyone who tuned in and to the teams who participated in the live draft.

The Pick’Em for Chezy Champs is now open at https://tinyurl.com/funcc2019 through Thursday 5pm eastern. The winner will receive an Amazon Gift Card

You can view scores live once the event starts at https://arimb.github.io/PickemLeagueLive/ Note that when you submit your picks it takes a few minutes to display. During the event it should update as shortly after each match is posted.

Good luck and thanks to @AriMB for creating the draft website!

How did you determine the value of each team? Any other factors besides elo?

The main inputs were Elo and the predicted rankings from my event simulator. I also found the minimum value for a team and added a non-linear adjustment to make better teams worth more.

Everything was empirically determined based on the IRI draft and results from earlier this year. There are some differences between the events (notably, team count) that I tried to correct for, but we’ll see how good of a job I did.

Neat, thanks!

Congrats to the winning teams!

Pick’Em: Not254 with 229 points will receive an Amazon Gift Card
Live: Layth is Studying with 152 points will receive a thethriftybot.com swag pack

Any feedback is appreciated. According to @AriMB here are a couple bugs that were fixed:

  • Bug when playoff matches are posted but not played - fixed
  • Bug with “last match” during playoffs - fixed
  • Ties were being ranked with a tiebreaker of reverse submission order - list is still in the same order, but now respects tied scores
