So us losers get a redo?
@HaroldSeattle might be able to create another Survivor on this site. It requires someone with enough authority to create a schedule, and more importantly, the software probably requires a 2022 license.

For reference the procedure to set up a prize pool is as follows:
1) Create a Sportsbook event with a single outcome bet with a title something like - Entry fee for Survivor. The odds aren't important because all bets will be settled as losers.
2) Set the minimum wager equal to the entry fee with the maximum wager to that amount + $1.
3) Set an opening and closing date/time.
4) Settle all bets as losers after the timer expires.
5) Each 'prize' has it's own Sportsbook. It's advisable to include the winner's name in the 'prize' Sportsbook. Multiple Sportsbooks will be required for multiple winners.
6) Each 'prize' Sportsbook has a single outcome. The maximum wager limit should be set to 1, (important). The wager amount minimum should be set to something the winner can afford, but it's advisable to make this amount as high as possible. The maximum stake should be the minimum + $1.. The odds should be set to winning amount to stake. EG if the prize is $5000 and the stake required is $500 you set the odds to 5000/500.
7) Check to make sure the right member has bet/claimed the prize. If so settle the bet as a winner. If someone tries to 'steal' it you settle the bet as a loser and create a new Sportsbook.

Yeah tried last year, I wasn't aware of the license part, but apparently it's not up to date.

Easier to settle payouts with member bets that can be set up for only one specific person....

14 of 32 are out.
Whoever Whoops76's is should be out as he played to a tie.

I get it he didn't lose, but he didn’t win either.

Only 10 have actually survived so far. The other 8 players still active are presumably counting on the Broncos in Week 1.

Let me try to contact Shaggy.
To be honest I wouldn't do that. If the license is on a rolling 12 month period it wouldn't be available for the 2023 season and it's too late to get much use in 2022, (unless you're planning on using it for the World Cup). The software, (as written in 2019), was very limited. I did try to contact 'Bob' a few years back to offer suggestions and help that would improve his software. However i'm not a Xenforo software license holder and I wasn't willing to jump through multiple hoops just to contact him on his own private website.

I think Shaggy has other things to deal with at the moment.

If Seattle wins that would leave two alive, and one of the two picked a tie.

You got to check the fine print in the rules on a tie....do they technically advance because their pick did not lose?
What happens if a team that I picked ties?


You advance to next week! A tie is the same as a win for the purposes of Eliminator Challenge
