The league I’m currently running uses different, self-contained formats each week (pingolf, group knockout, round robin, flip frenzy, & herb), with each awarding points (100/80/60/50/45/40, etc) that go towards an overall standing. The finals was promoted as using those standings for Ladder format seeding.
I had planned for 16 players, and then top 8 would play the ladder, and bottom 8 would do something else. But, the numbers were lower than expected, and I will probably only have 9 or 10 players total for the finals (with two or three people having dropped out partway through the league).
Can I do a finals ladder with all 9/10 players attending the finals, and still have all the TGP from all five previous weeks count? Or would I have to take between 10-50% to the finals?
(I’d love to be able to do the ladder, but with six total weeks of play, I think it’s important to have max TGP…which would easily happen as long as I’m following the rules correctly).
