It is still all the play for and every result it still on the table. It becomes purely tactical as huge amounts of points can be won or lost. Do teams play it safe or risk it all? Whatever is decided, but it’s at this point heroes emerge and legends are created. Time for your senior exec to stand up and be counted. Will they lead from the front or take a step back and be the puppet master? This could be critical for your final standing.
