Player of the Year 2024
As many of you know I've been struggling for motivation in (to quote Goo) 'the burning dumpster fire of bb2020', but another Dome doesn't appeal in the current state of the game. However, now the major and minor schedule is back (and improved by Gauntlet) there's an opportunity to see who is the best tourney player of the year in 2024!

FUMBBL C Minors
Semi 1
Final 2
Winner 5

BBT
1st 6
2nd 4
3rd 3
4th 2
5th 1

Only the top squad for each coach scores points

Majors
Quarter 2
Semi 4
Final 7
Winner 12

Fumbbl Cup
Quarter 3
Semi 5
Final 8
Winner 13

While I'm clearly favourite with my current total of 0 major wins, if the inconceivable happens and someone else wins there will be a physical prize for the winner TBA in a couple weeks after I've checked logistics.

Events need to start in 2024 score points

I would anticipate:
~5 minors throughout the year
3 BBT ladders*
3 Gauntlet Majors*
~4 Traditional Majors
1 FUMBBL Cup

*Due to the nature of the BBT/Gauntlet cycle the first eligible tournament will be the January Gauntlet Major (so get your qualifying runs finished in this season's trophy) and the eligible BBT ladders will be the ones starting in Jan, May, Sept 2024. The Jan 2025 Gauntlet at end of Sept BBT will not count for points in POTY 2024 (but will count in 2025 if this returns), similar to how the Sept 2023 ladder that feeds the Jan 2024 Gauntlet doesn't score any points.

Leaderboard will appear in a forum thread once the first points are scored.

If you're serious about a physical prize for the winner, let's talk and see if there's a way I could add something to the prize pool.

Exciting! And a great way to encourage greater engagement for Minors.... come join us in the RRR and brawls scene, everyone!

Great fun!
So qualifying for the Gauntlet would give 2 points then?
Posted by SideshowBob on 2023-11-10 14:10:26
Oh just realized that QF means quarter final

Best tournament player is whoever wins bb2020 RRR with all races, everyone knows that. So apply now, it's open 24/7!
Posted by SideshowBob on 2023-11-10 14:18:59
@storr lets do the rrr player of the year too. You can only get points for one team per race
Posted by happygrue on 2023-11-10 14:42:13
Fun idea! Have you thought about including something for top 5-10 placement in BBT Seasons as well?
Posted by Spence on 2023-11-10 16:39:20
The application windows for RRR and brawls are obviously too confusing to include them. @datom

Good point Spence. It's fine I intend to clean up the next Minor using OWA. What could go wrong?

I have a set of OG FUMMBL dice with poker chip, d6, etc. from circa 2013 I would contribute to the prize pool. I keep saving them for projects I still have not gotten to.

I'm just so impressed when fun little things pop up unannounced on FUMBBL, like the player icons on the team pages, or recently, the different yellow stars on a coach page indicating tournament wins.

Best tournament in fumbbl is Rumbles, why not on list?

Mostnwins with different races.

Also put BIG star to front page from RRR win
Posted by Spence on 2023-11-11 11:00:35
The Fill n Go stuff like rumbles and brawls would exclude everyone who doesnt want to spend a year only playing bb. Not a volume based award, but focused on a limited schedule of big tournaments.
Posted by koadah on 2023-11-11 14:28:10
Even with Majors & Minors it might be an idea to only include a coach's top n results.
Give them one pass at least.

Real life often intervenes.

It adds a bit more complexity though
