    I'm no math wizard (well, I am, sorta) but I think the numbers I put up there equal $24 million, which is close to the number we've been working with for years apparently.

    Duke's numbers are more confusing, in my opinion.

    Duke's numbers keep in line with the $23 mil that is currently being used. Really instead of spreading out the numbers to 1st and 2nd, just reduce the 1st to $3 mil and make it easy.

    It's easier just to give 1M for the LCS and leave the numbers at what I posted.

    FWIW, this is what it looks like currently applied in the script:


    Code:
    $league_pool = $league_exp - $league_pf - 23000000;
    
    # regular season standings, playoff allocations
    $adj[5] = $adj[5] + 800000;
    $adj[1] = $adj[1] + 600000 + 1000000 + 1000000;
    $adj[11] = $adj[11] + 400000;
    $adj[31] = $adj[31] + 200000 + 1000000;
    
    $adj[16] = $adj[16] + 800000 + 1000000;
    $adj[15] = $adj[15] + 600000 + 1000000 + 1000000 + 1000000 + 1000000;
    $adj[7] = $adj[7] + 400000;
    $adj[35] = $adj[35] + 200000;
    
    $adj[36] = $adj[36] + 800000 + 1000000 + 1000000 + 1000000;
    $adj[33] = $adj[33] + 600000 + 1000000;
    $adj[21] = $adj[21] + 400000;
    $adj[22] = $adj[22] + 200000;
    
    $adj[30] = $adj[30] + 800000 + 1000000;
    $adj[25] = $adj[25] + 600000;
    $adj[27] = $adj[27] + 400000 + 1000000 + 1000000;
    $adj[12] = $adj[12] + 200000;

    I think that's fine, Cuervo. So the SS loser gets $1 million, the SS winner gets $2 million, right?

    That sounds good actually.

    2nd - 1.25M
    3rd - 500k
    4th - 250k

    Playoff bonuses

    LCS winner: 1M
    SS winner: 2M

    2nd - $1.5M
    3rd - $500K
    4th - Lotto ticket in the playoffs

    SS loser: $1M

    4th should get something, IMO. If you aren't going to guarantee any money to make the playoffs, then 4th needs to get some $$$

    Fwiw, I'm a proponent of eliminating the 4th place teams from the playoffs, so my proposal reflects that.

    If you are going to have a 4th place team in the playoffs (and you should), you need to stop treating them like they are the ugly stepchild. Treat all playoff teams equally and give them all money.

    The 4th seed is the ugly stepchild. You're allowed to treat ugly stepchildren differently.

    As an aside, I didn't see it mentioned anywhere, but I assume this would take effect for the 2050 season.
