WPOL 2019 League Finals


Venue:     Tuscany Suites & Casino Las Vegas


League Finals:     5/31/19 – 6/2/19


Leagues Must Start By:     2/10/19

  • Based on a 15-week schedule, leagues that start on 2/10will end on 5/19. This is the absolute latest a league can start without needing doubleheaders to finish in time.

Leagues Must End By:  5/19/19

  • Leagues must end by 5/19 in order to give us time to prepare stats for the league finals. Any un-played matches after 5/19 will result in zero wins for the match for both teams involved and makeups will not be allowed.

  • Teams are placed in divisions for WPOL leagues based on their Card Rating, which is displayed on the mobile app and our website upon log-in. (Card Rating is also displayed when a player is on Global VS or scans his/her card in the Card menu (not to be mistaken with General Rating). Decimal points in ratings do not matter for placing teams in divisions (12.9 is still a 12 rated player), however they do come into play for teams busting division caps (detailed below). 

 

PLEASE NOTE: In order to further combat sandbagging and variations of it, please see the following rules regarding teams busting the cap for league finals. Also, it’s important that when players form a team that is near the top of a division’s cap, they should understand that they carry a high risk of busting the cap and being moved up into a higher division for the league finals. 

Doubles Divisions:

  • A team with a player who finishes the league with an Official Rating that is 9 rating points above the division’s individual cap will require the team to be bumped up into a higher division.
  • A team that finishes 9 rating points above the division’s team cap will be bumped up into a higher division.

Singles Divisions:

  • A player who finishes the league with an Official Rating that is 9 rating points above the division’s individual cap will be bumped up into a higher division.

* Official Ratings are decided by Phoenix Dart Inc. A player’s league rating at the end of the season is not their Official Rating.  Players should be warned, as we take sandbagging very seriously and players who are caught may be disqualified from the tournament with no refunds given.

Qualification Requirements:

  1. Teams that finish in the top half of their leagues are qualified to play in the League Finals
    • For example, in a 6 team league, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rdplace teams advance to the League Finals.
    • If your league has an odd number of teams then the top half + 1 team will advance. For example, in a 5 team league, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rdplace teams will advance. 

 

  1. Teams that do not finish in the top half of their leagues have the option to re-buy into the League Finals for $40 per person.
    • The re-buy fees are added into the division's league finals payout.

 

  1. Teams must play all of their matches regardless of whether or not the match will have an impact on the final standings.
    • Un-played matches mean less money collected towards the league finals payout, therefore teams that do not play all of their matches must pay for their un-played matches or they will not qualify for the league finals. 

 

  1. League Finals subs must be reported to Phoenix Dart prior to the league finals for approval.
    • Subs can be assigned at the league finals in emergency situations. The sub must be equal to or lower in rating than the player he or she is replacing. 

 

  1. Players are only qualified to play in the League Finals for the division they played league in.
    • Players can qualify for multiple divisions by playing in multiple leagues.

 

 

Accounting 

  • Teams that do not play all their matches are reducing their division's payout and therefore will not be allowed to participate in the League Finals unless they pay for their un-played matches. If a player/team has not played more than half of their matches, they will not be qualified for the League Finals even if they pay for their un-played matches.

 

League Duration 

  • League duration is based on team count but will range from 14 to 15 weeks.
