For example, lets say there are three people at the end of the day at 199, is it the first person "time wise" the next day that gets to 200 that wins? Thus benefitting you to take all early games that day no matter what the matchup is hoping you get there first.

Or is it determined another way if more than one entry get to 200 on the same day?

It will go to the person who wins the 200th game first, so get your picks in that day on an early game if you're in the hunt to win it. And... i'm not sure... but I'm pretty sure, if they both pick the same game, the next tie breaker is win%... then the next would be who made the pick first.

I'm sure Rizz will be able to answer the question in what order the tie breakers go... but for sure, it is who ever gets to 200 first.

Thank you! I am currently 9 back from the leaders so not likely to get to that point but I was just curious how it works.

 

I appreciate your help.

Hey DA/Trotter,

Tie Breakers

The race will officially end after 25 participants have reached the 200-win mark. Throughout the race, the following tie breaker will be used to rank users on the overall leaderboard in the event that multiple users are tied with a specific number of wins. If multiple users are tied, the earliest start time of their last winning pick (game) will be used as the tie breaker (time as listed on the pending page). As the second tie breaker, if users remain tied, the earliest pick time that each of the contestants entered with their last winning pick will be used to determine the leader. This will be determined by a time stamp recorded when each pick is submitted.
