Greetings Awesome Steemians!
It’s Q here, the friendly mascot of the Your Top 3 contest and I hope you’re enjoying another month of Top 3 shenanigans! In today’s post, I want to talk about the various different leagues that we have going with our monthly contest, how they work and how you can benefit from them (whilst putting the Panel through the ringers on organising the spreadsheets)! Let’s begin!
Introducing Your Top 3 Leagues
We have been working hard behind the scenes and diving deeper into our spreadsheets to figure out how we can give away more STEEM and SBD to you awesome folks who get involved each month. What we’ve come up with are a series of leagues that will run throughout the year with a final Champions League at the end of it all!
We’ll still be running the usual monthly contest with the monthly prizes given out as they have been before and we announce this in our Winner Announcement posts at the end of each month.
The final table here is based on a combination of total votes from the dpoll, entry fee paid in, where the nominations appeared in the poll and some patented magic Q dust. 😃
What’s more, you don’t need to do anything else in addition to writing your entry post to enter these leagues - you’re automatically enrolled just by entering with a qualifying post!
Q’s Quarterly Leagues
Now, my personal “Q’s League” that runs every quarter involves some revolutionary mathematics to give points to those who finished outside the Top 3 in the regular monthly contest. These points build up each month and contribute to that quarter’s points total.
Those who finish in the Top 3 of the Quarterly Leagues will get SBD prizes too. So don’t despair if you didn’t win the big monthly prizes, there’s a chance to win with the quarterly leagues!
Here’s how the Quarterly League looks after February:
The Story So Far
With just March remaining, it’s tight at the top of the Q league. @traciyork has the lead with an impressive 35 points but she is being chased down by the ever present @fmbs25 who has bagged 26 points so far. Next up is ‘first timer’ @manuelramos on 23 and a possible third place prize winning finish. But there is still plenty to play for with @dksart, @tryskele and @fionasfavourites all within touching distance of Top 3 glory and a prize payout. Good luck this month and remember, you gotta be in it to win it!
Then we have the grand finale as, at the end of the year, we’ll be unleashing the ultimate Champions League where all the points accumulated each month will be totted up and SBD prizes will be given to those that finish in the Top 3.
Most importantly though, you get to be crowned Your Top 3 Champion and have the ultimate bragging rights! Here’s how the Champions League looks after February:
It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint
It’s the big one and we are already into our third month of the year. @rentmoney has started fast with one monthly first place in the bag but right up beside him is the ever consistent @fmbs25. Both contestants are on 29 points a piece. Behind them and chasing hard after a big win in January is @wiseagent on 28 points and only three points behind in 4th place is @dksart on 25 points. @traciyork is on 20 points and a solid 5th place. There is a long way to go yet and consistency is the key. Keep those entries coming and good luck.
The Prize Pool Structure
With all these different prizes for different leagues, how do I calculate them all?
Well, have no fear, I’ve broken it down for you in the handy list below! Here’s how the monthly entry fees will be divided up:
- 65% to the monthly Top 3 Prize Pool
- 5% to the Quarterly League Prize Pool
- 5% to the Champions League Prize Pool
- 25% to the Panel
