You know, originally, I wasn’t even going to update our Leaderboard through the NFL Playoffs. However, after Wild-Card Weekend I realized the points didn’t properly add up to the won-loss record for each user, which updates automatically. So. . . I kept updating each week.
I had a nice comfortable lead in first place, 146 points to 136.5 points for tonyburtt in second place after the Conference Championships. Then my Super Bowl week playing Fantasy Throwdown apparently went only slightly better than Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl. At least I wasn’t in front of a national audience.
My record for Super Bowl was a pitiful 3-13, including a loss to Tony as I challenged him to a game to give him a last shot at the top spot. Smooth move! He went 3-1. That game he beat me was the difference.
Congrats Tony! You are our second half Leaderboard champion!
Destroyers 13 shot way up in the final week, from 15th to finish in third. Nicely done! Our NFL Playoffs Challenge Champ, rhazes_darkk, finished fourth and our Best of Throwdown Champ, Bigchief37, finished fifth.
We actually didn’t award any Leaderboard bonus points or badges for the NFL Playoffs Challenge because, as I said, I hadn’t planned to update the Leaderboard once the playoffs started. I really liked that concept though, so we’ll expand our badges/bonus points system next year as we run more special events, and maybe come up with some cooler looking badges.
For posterity, here is a screen shot of the Leaderboard Top 15 for the second half of 2013. The full Leaderboard will stay in place until we reset it prior to the 2014 NFL season. Thanks again everyone for playing, and see you back here next season!
