I was playing a few people recently who are determined to finish their 60 game run in the BBT, despite the bad dice they have been getting. I find myself respecting that, and wishing their was some form of 'reward' or acknowledgement for completing a sprint.

One idea that came to mind..

There are 32 entries into the post-season tournament, one for each winning race, and then compensation entries of other high scoring teams.

I think it would be great if at least one or two of the compensation entries were chosen at random from all of the squads that finished a 60 game run. In this way a coach gains a little something as reward for their perseverance.. a roughly 1 in 45 chance of making it into the tournament. The coach who won that 'lottery' would enter the team on their squad with the best result.

In BBT 10, 9 & 8, I count 44, 43, and 50 completed runs. To determine a winner, one could roll a d50 in DISCORD and count up from the bottom to see which coach matched the roll.

Example: BowlBot rolls a 15 on 1d50, so the 15th worst scoring squad of completed runs would have a team make it into the tournament.

Just an idea. I do admire coaches who finish what they start, and who add true diversity to the box by playing their lower tier teams to completion. Cheers.

This is a great idea for us middling coaches!

Aint the idea of gauntlet that its not for all and just for winners ?

I think theres enough tournaments already that are open to all.

(Personally never get even 15 games in so dont compete there)

Nice idea. Steel Trophy does feel like an open competition turning into a closed party sometimes.
