brief summary -

about 24 doubles teams

4 divisions, 2 conferences
6 team divisions
this is supposed to be just like a sports league

play a schedule of 50-80 games with an emphasis on your own division with very games against the opposite conference.

the winners of the each division get a 1st round bye

the next 4 teams in the conference are seeded accordinng to w/l and then play round
next round its reseeded as the division winners as the top seeds. the one with the best record is of course the top seed at this point.

each playoff round is best of 7

initially i wanted it be world 2.1 unlimited, fog, escalating but not everyone will be interested in that so each team can select their home field. the regular season will be based on home/away games and there will be home field advantage in the playoffs.

it will be an ongoing thing where we keep a record.

I like the idea of having a league and playing games with a goal in sight. i want it be just like a sports league with its own history, rivalries,etic
i could assist you.
send me a private message if interested

2 divisions within conference
6 teams within each conference

Wales Conference

Patrick Division Adams Division

Team 1 Team 2
Team 8 Team 7
Team 9 Team 10
Team 16 Team 15
Team 17 Team 18
Team 24 Team 23


Campbell Conference

Norris Division Symthe Division

Team 3 Team 4
Team 6 Team 5
Team 11 Team 12
Team 14 Team 13
Team 19 Team 20
Team 22 Team 21

There will be a regular season in which each team will accumulate a wins and loss record. After the regular reason there will be playoffs to determine the season’s champion.

The playoffs will consist of 12 teams from each conference with 4 rounds.

During the 1st round each division winner will get a bye.
The 4 remaining top teams from each conference will be seeded from 1 to 4. 1 will play 4 and 2 will play 3. The winners will move on to the second round.

Second round – the division winner with the best record will play the lowest seeded winner from the previous round. The other division winner will play the other winner.

Conference championship – the winners of the two previous rounds will play here to determine the winner of the conference.

Finals Round – the Conference winners will play to determine the season’s League Champion.

Each playoff round will be a best of 7 with the highest seeded winner having home field advantage. 4 of the games will be on their home settings.
Games 1 and 2 will be on the highest team’s settings
Games 3 and 4 on the lowest team’s settings
Game 5 – highest team
Game 6 – lowest team
Game 7 – highest team

Regular season Schedule

1st batch of games – each team will play each of their division opponents twice – 1 game home, the other away.
10 games in total

2nd batch of games – each team will do likewise but against each of the 6 teams against teams in the other division within their own conference.
12 games in total

3rd batch of games - each team will do likewise but against the 6 teams from a division within the other conference.
12 games in total

4th batch of games – each team will play their division opponents
10 games in total

5th batch of games – each will play the teams from the division in the other conference that they have not played yet
12 games in total

6th batch of games – each team will play the teams in the other division within their own conference
12 games in total

7th and final batch of games – each team will play their division opponents
10 games in total

78 regular season games in total

Each team will select their own type of game – ie, map, forts, cards, fog or no, etc

Once a team joins the league they are in for life until they decide to drop out
This will be an ongoing league with infinite seasons.
We’ll keep track of the wins/losses and playoff results in order to establish a history.

The allocation of teams to divisions will be based on the total number of pts between the two players for each team. The teams will be ranked from 1-24 based on pts. Team 1 will go to the Patrick division, team 2 to the adams division, team 3 to the Norris, team 4 to the symthe division, team 5 to the symthe and so on. See the above chart for further clarification.

Lets play some Tic-Tac-Toe !!!
You can set it up as a 1v1 tourney or do teams. For example:

Team [X]
-joe
-bob
-briggs

Team [O]
-billy
-james
-keebler

Here's how it will work. A coin toss decides who goes first.
If it's your turn, your team picks a square and the setting for the game.
If you win you get the square. If you lose, the other team gets the square.

Sound fun?

As a tournament idea: How about Tournament of the Forgotten Lands, a simple 32/64 person knockout, playing on all those traditional style maps that you never seem to see on the game finder anymore, E.G. North America, Arctic, Cairns Coral Coast.

A breathe of new life into some older tried and tested maps, i'd organise it myself, but i am going on holiday on the 30th, though maybe when i get back, but until then, the idea is going free for anyone who wants to adopt it?

I'd like to see a big escalating tourney only for players of 2000 or more points. I sometimes get frustrated trying to find escalating games without a noob that wants to suicide for a bonus, etc.
64 players in 8-man groups, a series of 12 or 16 games on standard maps, with the player with the most wins advancing from each group. Something like that. Or the top 2 players from each group into Final Sixteen.

If I'm allowed to do this, I'll do it.

Obviously with some different variations, but if I'm allowed to put in a 2,000 point rule, then I'll run that tournament.

Mods?

why are we not allowed to run tournaments where everyone has at least 1600 points ?



you are it's just that 2000 is the max limit

so that should say 2000 not 2000+

i have always been confused by that line, still am :?


No, it says 2000+ because you can have a 2000- tournament. You CAN have a 2500- tournament, but not a 2500+ tournament. The + is there to indicate that the tournament is open for anyone over that amount of points. If you wrote it without the +, people may think you have to have that exact number of points to be able to join the tournament.

I'm surprised that we don't have something like the English Premier League and the leagues below it. We would probably need about 100 players in total. they would then be split into 3 groups. the top 1/3, middle 1/3, and bottom third, based on their conquer club rankings. They would play their alloted games in each group. I think the premier league plays each team once and half of them twice. so about 50 games each team in this league. Each season the bottom 3 teams from the top 2 groups get relegated down and the top teams from the lower divisions move up.
I would love have this kind of league in place and would run it myself if I had the time. So if anyone wants to do something like this, then by all means please do so. I can try and help out in anyway that I can.

Hey guys.
I was wondering if theres ever been a 'Relived Spanish Civil War' tourney, I haven't quite gone into detail as of yet, thought I'd find out if it has been done before screwing around my brain to map it out.
Cheers!

Has there ever been a tourney before where you had to win a singles game at each different number of players (ie 8 player, 7 player....etc)?

I think if you had 24 you could do it.

Three 8 player games
Three 7 player games (winners from the last round can play in the 7 player game or play in a separate 3 player game)
Four 6 player games
Four 5 player games (winners from last round could play in a 4 or 2 player game if they chose and agree)
Six 4 player games
Eight 3 player games
Twelve 2 player games

After the cycle finishes, simply repeat until you get a player who has won at each level.

If a player wins a 8 player or 6 player game they could maybe choose another player to take their place as a strategic move or if they need to player a different level.
We dont know what happens in the after, but we know its different than what happened in the before.
