SCT Cup 2019 – Qualifiers & WildCard Weeks

SCT CUP QUALIFIERS AND WILDCARD WEEKS

<written and created by Roo Bloke>

 

First and foremost. Welcome to the 2019 SCT Cup. This is our third edition of what has fast become a much sought after accolade amongst our growing community. It’s bloody hard to even make the cut these days as the SCT group has grown at a rapid rate. In 2017 there were only 376 in the SCT group at the end of round 3 but this year there’s 827. It’s got me thinking that next year I may have to expand the SCT Cup to accommodate more entrants. That’s 12 months away though and a thought bubble for another day.

 

An apology for not getting this post out earlier in the week. I typically try and get this done Monday/Tuesday so it can hit the site Wednesday/Thursday. My team of trained monkeys have been working frantically round the clock since SC opened Sunday night to try and figure out a loophole to get me into the SCT Cup … but alas, they came up with diddly squat. Comps cancelled people. See you next year. Huh? No? I can’t do that? Ba humbug.

 

AUTOMATIC QUALIFIERS: Maybe it’s due to a delayed pre-season following post-season surgeries. Maybe they’ve taken their SC team on an Adelaide style bonding camp. Possibly they’ve rested on their 2018 laurels. Whatever it is, our eight automatic qualifiers, our crème de la crème from 2018, they’ve started slower than Melbourne’s midfield and they are S.T.RUGGLING. Actually, there’s a lone hand blazing a trail from the hateful eight with allSAINTS@SCT jumping out of the gate. Here’s the current overall rank of our automatic qualifiers but be warned, there are some large numbers in here. Kyuubi (56,486), TRUDGE TRIUMPH@SCT (55,980), AGB (64,422), Nathan’s Gunz (26,209), allSAINTS@SCT (1,649), Buttslappers@SCT (22,908) and Bunchakhuuuunts (51,549). That’s some slow starts! Our other automatic qualifier from last season is Johnathan who last year coached Danger Bont to 6th place in the SCT Cup. There’s no Danger Bont in the SCT group and with Johnathan being a unique name I’m assuming that Macrae’s (14,034 overall) and coached by the only Johnathan in the SCT group, is the right team. Can I get some confirmation on this Johnathan?

 

QUALIFIERS: There were 220 spots up for grabs but it never ends up as simple as that. With allSAINTS@SCT the only automatic qualifier to lob in the top 220 plus a tie for the final spot it means the top 222 from the SCT group are through. That puts the cut as the top 10,851 with an average of 2209. Congrats to all of these coaches. We’ll see you in SCT Cup action in round 6 and 7. To clarify further, that’s the top 222 ranked coaches in the SCT group when I took a whole bunch of screen shots at 10:21pm Sunday evening, not some Johnny come lately who’s just joined the party.

 

WILDCARD WEEKS: The next 80 in the SCT group have been placed into 10 groups using a snake method. Wildcard action is taking place over round 4 and 5 with the winner of each group progressing to the SCT Cup proper. Originally, second from each group was also going to progress but with ties for direct qualification I’ve had to alter that. The nine highest second place finishers will advance meaning one unlucky sole will miss out.

  1. The formatting looked better in my original document. Hmmm, think I know the problem and how to fix it. Lesson learned for next week’s article.

  2. Great work again getting the SCT Cup up and running again this year!

    RB I will get onto Jonathon as I am in 2 Leagues with him and let you know if he was Danger Bont last year. A good chance though as he is a big Dogs fan and he finished in the Top 500.

      1. Confirmed RB by Jonathon that he changed his team name from Danger Bont last year to the Macrae’s this year.

    1. There kinda is!!!! Highest team in the SCT group with @SCT in their name gets the cash prize. Last year the top few in the SCT group didn’t have @SCT so they didn’t get the moolah. Pretty sure it’s the same t’s & c’s as 2018.

    2. Here here! Ditch all those without the SCT moniker RB and we’ll be sweet to qualify!!

      Looks like I’ll miss out this year for the first time! Damn! Well done again mate on getting this up and running and good luck all those that have qualified!!

  3. Elite event and maybe my favourite on SCT.
    With all the work you do RB, I have to admit I am disappointed you are not able to play in your own comp. Maybe in future years, you can leave one space for yourself and should you not hit the qualifying number you have to compete against #1 first round. I’m sure others on this site would support saving a spot given the mountain of work you do.

    On another note, I have to admit I like the current cap number. I was ranked 67,000+th after round 1, made a corrective trade and now find myself around 6,000th. I think I’m proof 3 rounds gives you enough time to have a shocker and still make the list.

    Interested to hear others thoughts but I like the challenge of knowing it’s a challenge just to get in…

    Thanks again Rooboy, love your work

  5. Wow, stoked to have this wildcard format – I get a second chance this year!

    I was very frustrated to see myself drop so far and out of automatic qualification in the first place when Crisp, Fyfe and Rocky combined to shoot me in the foot in round 3.

    Given the circumstances it still seems unlikely I make the cut, but it’s fun to be included in one part of the SCT Cup! Good luck to everyone in the wildcard rounds!

    1. The top 222 in the SCT group are through and don’t play in round 4 & 5. They feature in the next stage of the SCT cup in round 6 & 7. Rather than list the 8 automatic qualifiers PLUS the 222 qualifiers PLUS the 80 wildcard entrants I decided to focus on the wildcards as that’s where the action is in the SCT Cup at the moment.

  7. Failed to qualify for a 3rd straight year…..bugger. For whatever reason, I never start well enough. Gotta lift my game.
    Thanks again to Roo Bloke for all the hours of effort that you put into this competition!!

    1. I’ve got a theory Schwarz. A lot of the Contributors miss the cut regularly. Do we spend too much time contributing content to do the necessary research to make our team the best it can be? I know i spent a bunch of hours this week on the SCT Cup that weren’t spent working on my team.

      1. Don’t think so……I did the same thing as always……I have to be the smartest guy in the room so I made some unnecessary changes late. That and consistently having the wrong rookies on-field…..

    1. Ummm …. did you enter the TEAM after the end of round 3?? It doesn’t have a round 3 ranking next to it on the SCT group.

  8. So glad I qualified by virtue of my performance last year

    My ranking has gone 6K, 10K and 22K and I have Fyfe out this week.

    There is no need > peak > early I say !!

  9. Auto Qualification was vital for me.
    My team is about 90% the same as every other team that’s doing well, but my couple pods suck and I keep making Captain errors and fielding the lowest scoring rookies.
    Holding off trades and having a very healthy bank are the only real positives…. upwards from here surely?
