Survivor Pool Option: Level of Difficulty Settings - Available Teams

    As per title, a pool configuration setting that adds a degree of difficulty to the pool.
    • Level of Difficulty Settings
      • Available Teams
        • Home and Away Teams (Default)
        • Home Teams Only
        • Away Teams Only
    Currently, players are able to select any Home or Away Team during a given week (as long as they have not previously picked that team and the game is not locked).

    To make things a bit more "challenging", there would be two more options that would limit the available teams to pick from. If setting the Available Teams to Home Teams only, then all away teams would automatically be LOCKED from being able to be selected (Vice Versa for the Away Teams Only).

    Players would have to be very strategic and plan ahead or they could end up in a situation deep into the pool where they won't be able to make a pick because all the home teams for that week have already been used once or are on bye week.

    What about picking by spread one week or over under another week? Would that be too much?

    I should say spread only. Over under would have to be team based.

    Can you create another thread for it? Same format as my post, but make it related to that specific difficulty setting :) I THINK its doable, but won't know until I dig into it. Its a bit more difficult as games don't belong to a specific pool any more, so I would have to have the ability to have multiple game winner fields to handle spread vs straight up. (just yapping out loud)
