    Haha, thanks! :)

    But wait, there's more!

    After we're done trial running this team challenge playoff series, I'm gonna try running a weekly tournament bracket challenge next.

    I believe this one was what @rStock was looking for last year, but I never managed to run it because I got real busy at the end of last year.

    Basically this new tournament idea would be a 1 vs. 1 challenge, as opposed to 2 vs. 2 like this team challenge.

    To get an idea exactly what I mean, below is a sample bracket I created with the same usernames who are currently participating in this team challenge.

    I'm still undecided on exactly the format I'll end up running this. Right now I'm thinking of making this a best of 3 series, with whoever wins the first 2 against their opponent would advance to the next round. We'll see, but anyway here's an actual bracket of how this come out.

    It's just like a sports playoff series, where the higher seed plays the lower seed (I'm getting the seeds from the weekly contest leaderboards in case you're wondering.)

    hmm, i was looking around the forum to see if i had an existing thread from last year for the weekly stock picking tournament bracket challenge...i couldn't find anything. did i not run this last year? seems like i said i would, but actually never did?

    well, lately i've been contemplating running a tournament bracket challenge again soon. in fact, i've already brought this up with the members at our discord live chat community, however it doesn't look like anyone commented on it yet.

    so maybe if it didn't work out there, i can try running it here.

    would there be any interest from you guys who have been participating on the stock contests this year, in getting an instance of a bracket challenge up and running? perhaps by next month or something?

    i don't want to overwhelm you guys too much with too many games at one time like at the start of last year :p

    i know we already have the community contest running as well. so maybe after that one has completed, we get an instance of the tourney bracket running.

    we don't have sports to look forward to these days, but at least we can feel like its something with this stock tournament lol
