It's in the rules thread (first post) that a tie is a loss in the Meltdown. The scoring isn't in on that game yet.
Man, I was all frustrated that I lost and just took this at face value, but when I read the rules, it said quite the opposite and now I'm stokedmenyak wrote:If a game is postponed beyond the weekend, or if a game ends in a tie, your predicted winner will be considered correct.
Really, it makes more sense this way, since it isn't an "incorrect" pick of a winner (or at least I support it because it helped me )...
Menyak and I talked about it and decided for this season it would count as a win, even though the team didn't actually win. So Menyak updated the rules today (Tuesday) to reflect it. When I made that post above (Monday), it was accurate and correct at the time. Was going to shoot you and logan PM's tonight, so it seems I just have to shoot him one now.
Don't expect it to be so nice next year though, Meltdown is a mean game and not for wusses!
