I think you missed the fact that top 2 clans from every of 4 divisions advance to playoff stage. so 8 clans it would be then and 7 home and away sets.

But it is still a knock out style once playoffs hit.

If we put 8 in a second phased league, then clans may not join the CCup due to game load....most of them are still deciding whether to do the league as the CCup is still going.

Hmmm, 28 games in our first batch and I don't see a single complaint about the dice from me. You have a fertile imagination josko.ri.

JPC....whatever you decide mate. It'll be fine.

Thank you for not wanting the whole homegame list before season! And, hopefully the game load won't go any higher next season, it would be a shame if clans need to start picking between Cup, League and challenges due to too big game load. That said, after some discussion in the clan forums we've decided to enter.

  • Generation One: The Clan (G1)
  • amazzony
  • Hath

Hope everything goes smoothly and enjoy the League everybody!

How about this... taking the 8 best records within the regular season then having them play say 25 total games spread out over the 8 clans. So say KORT make its.

They would then play 25 games total vs all other 7 clans, meaning some of the clans would get played more than others and on different maps or settings. You could predetermine which clans and settings, such as doubles triples and quads. It would be where the top 4 clans(record wise) have 13 home games and the bottom 4 have 12. Once the 25 games were over(Which would be played in 1 batch or 2. Then you would take the top 4 records and play again... then 2 and crown a champion. I think most would enjoy a system like that.


Example

LoW
IA
KORT
BPB
TSM
ID
Empire
THOTA

are the 8 clans to make it.

For playoffs week 1, a schedule would look like

KORT:
Low x 3
IA x 3
BPB x 3
TSM x 4
THOTA x 4
ID x 4
Empire x 4

I'll have to do some time line analysis as it seem like no matter what the CCup and League will always overlap for some clans. Having 8 clans go into 2 4's makes more sense, then top 2 in each into bracket playoffs like Season 2. Just means most of the year is busy.

I'd recommend the league be a straight up league over the course of the season, no playoff. If you want to do tiered leagues with promotion and relegation that's fine too, but keep in mind if there are clans that fall by the wayside in Div 2 it'll be a nightmare again.

I think it will not be Division 2 in future. at least in season 3 it will not be played.

Based on the polls, the league will stay traditional.

No Manual, No Nuclear

and the Playoff map will be Random (won out slightly over Classic, and well ahead of the other options)

Will be interesting to see what teams take on the random in the playoffs. :)

Personally I would like to see bigger divisions with less games against each team.

For instance playing 2x5 games per league week at (1x2x2) and having 2 leagues, with the playoffs being 1st vs 1st only.

But whatever you guys do is fine so long as we don't have to kick up a fuss about what division we are in ;)

Not sure how the divisions will play out. I have a draft of the autobids, but most are not confirmed and there is only 2 days left to signup. As for the playin bids, have several thoughts depending on how many total clans there are. Right now there are 17 which would be only 3 Groups if no others signed up.

Here are the team statuses.

Autobids Confirmed
EMPIRE
Imperial Dragoons
Nemesis
Angels of Death
The Odd Fellows Union
Agents Of Chaos

Autobids NOT Confirmed
Immortal Assassins
Knights of the Round Table
THOTA
Left4Dead
Legends of War
Bullet Proof Bandits
The Spanking Monkeys
Generation 1: The Clan
Legends of the Zone (considering going social)

Playin Bids Confirmed
Devil's Brigade
++The Legion++
Mythology
Grim Reapers
Memento Mori
FOED
The Last Warriors
TIME
Soldiers of War
Dynasty
Black Sheep Squadron
