Default 2021 March Madness

March Madness is back! I am running a Legion and friends pool for the 2021 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, better known as March Madness, through ESPN's Tournament Challenge platform. The main tournament starts Friday, and I'm late posting this, so please hurry. You get up to three (3) brackets, so use them all for the best chance to win 2 slots of cash or tech OR a TBD amount of PnW aid (pending approval of the PnW Legion gov). Invite allies and friends (only members of The Legion and our treaty partners will be eligible for prizes per Legion policy, but all friendly players are welcome to play).

The link is https://fantasy.espn.com/tournament-...tesource=email.

The password is "AveLegio!CNPnW" (no quotes).

Oh shit, I won?
Of course. My mastery of Autofill is king. The fact happy thought logic and statistics could win over pure random was folly.

So, when do I get my trophy and ring?

Joke's on you. My second-place bracket was also mostly an auto-pick.

The PnW prize was approved for this and all future Legion contests. The conversion rate is $5m PnW cash for each CN aid slot. You may accept that cash ($10m) in lieu of the CN cash or tech.

Interestingly, one of the main reasons I won was because I chose Baylor; and I chose Baylor because konkrage is always harping about them.

As for prize, as with last time, I submit my prize aid slots to however happy feels is the most efficient use for them at this time.

The OP clearly states the prize options are an either-or. It's a choice between the CN prize (which I'm assuming you're not taking as a tech bank) OR the PnW prize (which is a fixed 2 $5m = $10m). If you opt out of both choices, the prize would be defaulted to the second-place finisher, which just so happens to be me. If you want the PnW cash, take it. It's not my call, as I no longer work in PnW econ.

CN Aid slots, to however happy sees fit. If happy wants to choose the second place winner (himself) to get the prize, that is fine. But I have no need for it.

The second-place player (speaking of myself in the third person) would rather have the PnW prize than another 200 tech. I'll discuss it with the cabal.
