Rules

  • Fill out an NCAA men’s basketball tournament bracket and post it in this thread.
  • One entry per character
  • Multiple characters allowed
  • The person with the highest total score will be named winner
  • Posts may be edited as much as you want up to the deadline

ANY POSTS EDITED AFTER THE DEADLINE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED

Prizes

1st place: 75 Log in to see images!

2nd place: 15 Log in to see images!

3rd place: 5 Log in to see images!

4th place: 5 Log in to see images!

Scoring

Each game in the brackets will be scored up thusly: (Round value) + (Round number x Seed number)

Round 1 – 64 teams – 2 points for each winner picked

Round 2 – 32 teams – 3 points for each winner picked

Round 3 – 16 teams – 5 points for each winner picked

Round 4 – 8 teams – 8 points for each winner picked

Round 5 – 4 teams – 13 points for each winner picked

Round 6 – 2 teams – 21 points for each winner picked

The second part of the equation is to reward upset picks. So if a 14 seed wins in round 4 that team will net 64 points for the round and will have netted 158 points up to that point in the tournament. In contrast a 1 seed winning in round 4 would net 12 points that round and will have netted only 28 points. This may seem like an excessive reward for picking an upset, but keep in mind that it’s very unlikely for a low seed such as 14 to make it that far into the tournament and it’s even less likely that you’ll pick them.
