CPL Care Cup and Pre-season

    The CPL Care Cup is a mini preseason comp consisting mostly of knockouts. You'll play two games against the other members of your group, and the top two of each group will progress to a sixteen team knockout. I've openly kind of rigged the groups for fan service rivalries etc.

    All Care Cup games will be played at neutral venues, but you'll have two or three trials after the Care Cup on your actual home/away pitches.

    >inb4 Chewie joined the Allstars

    He played his last game for them and it fits much better that way.

    I originally had it a lot less CricSim clubish than that, other than the Gamblers. I had a NZ group, an "SA" group with South Australians and South Africans in it, a "CPL Super Nerds Group Chat" group with you, Hunter and Athlai in it, etc. I ended up with like six people left over doing it like that though.

    Chewie will always be a Puma at heart imo. You can't do Mousey like that man.

    Carn Gaz!

    Pumas is a tough group.

    To clarify, is it two games in total, or two games against each opponent?
     
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Total.

    You have a 100% chance of getting at least two games in the Care Cup
    67% chance of getting at least three
    33% chance of getting at least four
    17% chance of getting at least five
    8% chance of getting six

    Then you'll get another two or three after that.

    So it should be plenty of trials - between 4 and 9 depending on how well you do and whether I can be fucked simming a third non-tournament round of trials.

    What is the % of getting 0 trials?

    Tips for getting knocked out at the group stage:

    Benny, N11, Prez, Heef, Phlegm, Jimmy, Dan and me, Mace

    All the best
