With Season 2 of Secret League Americas all wrapped up, we are ready to head into the final playoffs, which will determine which will be the second team to lift Lustria's most coveted trophy, the Crown of the New World!:

Image

Will it be the reigning champion, Lorebass, and his skinks, or will a new overlord be crowned? Tune in to find out!

In this thread, I'm going to be posting the results from Season 2 and confirming which teams are going to be featuring in our grand finale.

First though, I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has played in SLA this season, especially those coaches who didn't win many games and finished low in the table, but still stuck with it and made it to the end of the season. 11 rounds is a long time and I really appreciate your commitment to the league. Thanks again and I wish you the grace of Nuffle next season Smile

Player Prize Results:

Our seasonal player prizes go to the individual players who have excelled on the BB pitch above all others in certain categories. They are listed on the 'booty' tab of the SLA Group Page, along with a list of past winners. Each player prize gives +1 to the season score for their team.

These are the winners for Season 2!:

Image Golden Ball of Shak'rilak (touchdowns)

Sister Mary Ellen (Sisters of the Silver Hammer) 10 touchdowns, coached by frzntoz.

Sister Mary Ellen is the first player to claim the golden ball, as it was unclaimed in Season 1.

Image Golden Gauntlet of Ixlsis (blocks)

Garbug (Big 'Uns is Best 'Uns) 106 blocks, coached by Sinnyil.

Won last season by Sigmar1's Keeper of Secrets, Sybyll'evestel (who was killed on the pitch during this season). Garbug fell just one block short of equalling Sybyll'evestel's record of 107 blocks.

Image Golden Mace of Ixlsis (casualties)

Honda Tadakatsu (SL Shogun ) 15 casualties, coached by MrNomad.

Honda has made quite a name for himself this season, winning the trophy and exceeding the record of 14 set by Pizzapocalypse's Dioda in Season 1.

Image Golden Wings of Vraxx (Passing Yards)

Aurarial of Starfall Cove (Sirens of the Sea and Sky) 38 yards, coached by Pizzapocalypse.

Aurariel bagged this goody whilst exceeding the record of 30 set last season by robocoyote's King P'nack Elnord.

Image Golden Glove of Hopsalottal (interceptions)

**unclaimed!**

The golden glove glove goes unclaimed for a second season, with 5 players all on 1 interception.

Image Golden Boot of Ripfang (fouls)

Gnocrirr (Big 'Uns is Best 'Uns) 28 fouls, coached by Sinnyil.

Gnocrirr swiped this sought-after trophy with 28 fouls, beating the record of 24 set by Dach's Headless Andrew in Season 1. Second player prize of the season for the Big 'Uns.

Image Golden Shades of Slimi Hendrik (MVPs)

Paskr (Ol Dirty Rats) 6 MVPs, coached by Buu88.

Won for the first time this season after being unclaimed last time. Paskr is officially the coolest player in town! Very Happy

Next up, the lost treasures, which the SLA teams can uncover on their trek through Lustria. There is one treasure for each division (East and West Coast) and each of them can be stolen by any team that beats the current holder and scores either two more TDs than them and/or two more casualties than them.

The current holders, as of the end of Season 2 are:

Image Sacred Idol of Potzipanzi

Current holder: Jungle Muppets, coached by captainmalkor, held for 2 games.

Image Bejewelled Helm of Studmandudebro

Current holder: Ecstasy and Agony, coached by Sigmar1, held for 3 games.

So, taking into account the player prizes and lost treasures, the final standings at the end of Season 2 are posted on the 'standings' tab on the SLA home page. (Commiserations to robocoyote and his Tilea team, who were leapfrogged into 3rd place in the East Coast by Sinnyil's Big 'Uns, because they won two player prizes)

Now that the league phase is complete, the top 3 teams from each division go into a final playoff knockout tournament, to determine the overall winner and the holder of the Crown of the New World.

The #1 team in each division gets a bye in the first round. Those two teams will face the winners of the two games between the second- and third-placed teams in the semi-finals.
