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


I get it, but I don't agree with it. That said had it been me, I'd gladly accept it.

Normally ties are consider as surviving since they avoid defeat. However, the rules are whatever the organisers want them to be. The Survivor software on XenForo allows for ties to be classed either way. The most fun Survivor i've been involved in was a few year's back when I ran a triple elimination Reverse Survivor. The object was to pick losers from a field of 'the best' 24 teams rather than the full list of 32 teams. Missed picks, ties, and winners all got a strike against them each week.

I feel bad for @UnrealTerm04 he was an eliminator virgin and got popped 1st week in.
A couple of years ago ESPN didn't have any cut off for losing eliminator contestants. You were out of contention if you had a losing pick but you could still make picks all season. That final year I started 0-3. I had a 17 point favourite lose in Week 1 and I followed it up to 2 losing 10 point favourites in the next 2 weeks. I finished 10-6 in Survivor!
