Adjustments to league format for CL6?

Postby ViperOverLord on Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:03 am

I'm going to state my proposal for CL6 without the reasons for now, so that my concepts are clear and concise.

* Expand Premier League to 18-22 clans and have the clans play each other only one time.
* Have relegation league(s) that allow teams' the opportunity to get back into premier league for the following season.
* Have a map system that is not based upon a clan only using one map for an especially large time frame. Perhaps, a hybrid system that is half random and half allocated. A clan could reuse a map once it has been retired for three matches.

I am in favor of a clan using somewhat a home map, a map that that clan use more often then others.

How would this work when all the clans participating play a series of games to determine the league they're entered into?

My understanding is that was a one time play-in. From there, the top 4 teams or so (I don't recall the number) in a league advance to the next league and the bottom 4 or so teams are demoted. The problem with that system imo is that it can lock good clans out of the premier league for two years or even more. That's just too long. Some clans may even decide it's not worth it and drop the CL to focus upon challenges or CC Cup. I think we should want a system that isn't locking out good clans from high level competition for so long.

I'm in favor of them having something that plays more to their strengths. But, I do like at least a brief interim between map usage so that clans can't use a one dimensional strategy.

Drop the 1 map rule. It really is becoming more like the Random League.

Premier League of 18-22 clans,, this its to large and could last to long,

Only one time? this mean that someone can win on hes home games, and lost away, and overall will lost all points. I think that this its not fair.

I think that this will not work, because you will have top 10 clans who will stay almost forever in Premier League, except if they go social, or decline to play in premier,, this will dont give any chance to low clans to fight for possibility to enter into Premier League. I also though that promotion relegation could work, but many things could shake this construction, and every year you will have clans who skip to play, who could leave in middle of competition, and then you will need to make many mechanism who will fix this in fast way. Creating rules are not easy.

I dont see what its wrong with 1 map use? You have over 230 maps, and you want that some clan only use 20 maps for entire league. Its encourage clans to start use other maps to, and make more competitiveness in league .

I support qwert. After last year's debacle, CL is interesting again. I like the format and I wouldn't change it.

I also like the current format, short of a few minor changes I would be happy to keep it as is.

What was last year's debacle and what makes it so huge that you want to make it so teams in third league are locked out of premier league for a minimum of two years? And btw, if they have a bad performance in second league, then that two year clock restarts. I find that system incomprehensible. Most clans do not want to get stuck in the mediocre leagues. They want to challenge themselves at the highest level.

The hell it is. You have 11 teams playing each other twice for 20 rounds. 18-22 clans playing each other once is roughly the same amount. And btw, I'd be fine with PL going as high as 24 clans.

Qwert wrote:Only one time? this mean that someone can win on hes home games, and lost away, and overall will lost all points. I think that this its not fair.


Then don't make the match-ups home and away. Allow each clan to pick half of the non-random maps.

Does Manchester United, Chelsea and, Liverpool get relegated or are they essentially fixtures? I don't care if TOFU or KORT stay in the PL if they earn it year after year. The point is to have more opportunity for for more clans to compete at the highest level. Why would you want to relegate top clans to the second league so easily anyways? That seems rather counter intuitive to me.

I don't think the minor issues regarding the relegation league has bearing on the readjustment. But, as far as the relegation system goes. I don't think it matters if there is one relegation league or two relegation leagues; so long as they offer a strong opportunity to get back into the premier league the next season. The three tier system is bunk.

1. It gets annoying to track what maps were used.
2. There are only so many maps that clans feel they have a distinct advantage upon. Like Keefie said. This is turning into Random League.

BTW: This isn't exactly the point. Because regardless of my clan's circumstances; I think that the premier league should be expanded and the relegation system designed to allow teams to reach the PL by the following season. But while my clan was in a state of flux with key departures, it did not help that we drew the group of death and then lose the second league tie breaker. Here are the one year rankings our group. We were all essentially second or premier league quality teams. Yet, because of quirky, random draw someone had to get screwed and relegated to the two year plan, which again is ridiculous.

IA - 2
OTP - 7
MD - 13
TFFS - 15
MM - 20 (Was 7 at the time we played them)
AQOH - 25

The use of home and away in order to even out any map advantage is undone by the 1 map rule. In rounds 15 and 16 we play our two main rivals in the competition and I'm going to struggle with map selection. It's making our 'home' games seem like away ones. This is why random maps are becoming more prevalent as the competition goes on. Clans are using them in the hope of scoring lucky with map selection. I think that allowing clans to use a map twice would alleviate this issue.

Qwert, rather than just dismissing suggestions, I would respectfully ask you to remain open to new ideas. ViperOverLord has come up with some good stuff and should be listened too.

I dont going to be Clan League Director for CL6, so after all if you want to create totaly new Competition system, this will be up to clan community. I just say what i think its not good. Benga pointed he will like to have that clan use home maps, so if few maps be used, then we can call "CL6 Classic Map Leagues" .

Yet, because of quirky, random draw someone had to get screwed and relegated to the two year plan, which again is ridiculous.

IA - 2

I dont quite understand what you mean to say? Who are screwed and relegated ? If system stay same, you will have again chance that from Qualification compete for Premier, Second or Third League, and all depend on your performance no mater how strong are your opponents.
But if you have 3 tier relegation-promotion,, then some clan will not get any chance to play against stronger clans, and will play in third league for long time.
Any how its only mine oppinion, and clans will decide , what they think its good and what are bad.
