This used to be a fantasy league classic, but since the game went online, it doesn't seem to be used that often.
What I'm talking about is a consolation bracket where the *loser* of each head-to-head matchup advances in the bracket. Essentially, it's a "Biggest Loser" playoffs.
I would love to see this supported in Fleaflicker. I would imagine it as a toggle menu setting:
Consolation Bracket Settings
[ ] Winner Advance - teams with the highest score in their head-to-head games advance
[*] Loser Advance - teams with the lowest score in their head-to-head games advance
Another year, another bump of this post. It's gotten so big! It's starting second grade this fall.
Right now the workaround would be to do it manually - we did address it in our Owner's Manual for you and others:
Can I set up a “toilet bowl”?
A “toilet bowl” is a playoff tournament where the losers advance. There's no explicit support for this, but the commissioner can manually advance the loser every week by going to League >> Settings >> Edit Past Box Score.
We hope to eventually have this automatic, but it's not on the imminent agenda right now, but is on there.
It's been 2 years since this reply, so I'm going to raise the flag for this one again.
Toilet Bowl / "Sacko" is an institution in fantasy football. Manual loser advance is a less than ideal workaround.
Every offseason now, I search for "toilet bowl" updates on Fleaflicker, and every year, I inevitably just find my own post. :(
But seriously, this idea is a core part of fantasy football culture. Hence the "Sacko" in the TV series, "The League".
Another year passed. Any chance of getting this feature added?
:( Fleaflicker seems incredible slow at updating is features. Every thing is "in the works but not a priority". I appreciate your persistence sir and I do hope they add the toilet bowel feature soon
Yes, please add this!
