Gauging interesting in a Low Stakes League...

So, for those unaware, there's a High Stakes League that has been running for several seasons, where 10-20 of us throw away $50 each season to a much happier winner. It's proven fun for us degenerates, but sometimes is difficult to find enough takers.


However, the success of the Beatdown league (wait, people like big, big money?!) led to some talk of a lower stakes league. Beatdown manager to get thousands to enter. Think of a melding between the two - a short-term league with a low cost to enter ($10 or $20?), but if we were to get even 100 people at $10 a pop, a sweet $1000 winner-take-all format for 4-6 weeks of "work."


[Note: current setup is 80%/15%/5% split amongst 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. With 50 players, this would be $400/$75/$25 payouts.]


If there's enough interest, I'm willing to host and administer. If you're game, join the league and comment in the Welcome post. I think I'll set the minimum limit for players at 50; with that many, we'll begin 6/7 with a 6-week league.

    I'm pretty sure there's at least one. You should inquire further. 👍

    Update: we're currently at 25 entrants, halfway to my goal of 50. A 25-person league would mean payouts of 200/37.5/12.5 for a $10 entry fee. Let's double it!

    @2001 I can't find you on Discord to message you. I'm not too familiar with it myself as I just joined it. My username on it is @Marty.
