Re: MLB 2011 Tournament[Recruiting Reserves][30/30][4/15]

Still have plenty of reserve spots available. If you would like to join, this would be a good idea to be a reserve, do to the length of the tourny, some may drop out....fingers crossed that doesn't happen too much. Thanks for looking.

I'd like to raise one concern before things get started. A lot of maps are being repeated as home maps. Doesn't it defeat the idea of "home field advantage" if for example, two people in the same division have Arms Race, two people in the same division have AOR II, and both of those maps are popping up in other divisions as well? I understand that those are complicated maps, and they give the team with them a familiarity advantage (in fact, both of those maps were explicitly banned in last years MLB tournament.)

I'd just like your thoughts on that - I think having some maps being used by so many teams will have a negative impact, and I think being allowed to use a map such as Feudal War will give a huge advantage over people like the poor sap who picked Classic as their home field.

Good point and thank you for your concerns. I can see where the same map should only be used once, but as far as banning a map I cannot do because a home map should be a map you're familiar with and good at, thus home field advantage, and the visiting team not so familiar with but will have an opportunity to upset the home team. One thing to limit the effectiveness of the folks using a complicated map was having a standardize set up and no freestyle, which if not familiar with the game and don't know about scripts will more then liking lose miserably. So I will ask the players in the tournament to settle between themselves which map each other should use and let me know. I will not require them to change their home map, but simply make a suggestion. It's only fair, since I didn't institute the rule from the beginning.

Opening games are under way. I will be submitting the next series shortly. Please join your games within 48 hours. If you can't, please contact myself and your opponent so we are made aware of your circumstances and to get an approval from both of us to take your turn in an approved time frame agreed upon. If your opponent does not agree on an extension, you may ask a reserve to take over your team, so the tournament can move more fluidly. If you choose to have a reserve take over the team, you will be placed into the reserves spot replaced by on the reserve list, but if nothing is done, you will be permanently kicked from the tournament. I appreciate your understanding of this and your cooperation in trying to move the tournament more fluidly. Thank you, and Enjoy the Tournament.

Would you please be so kind as to change the color of "league wins?" I'm having a really hard time seeing that.

Will start Week 2's games when I awake in the morning. There are currently 5 games remaining in Week 1's games. Everything is going smoothly. Currently there are 2 undefeated teams; Tampa Bay Rays & New York Yankees. The Yankees are still involved in a few games for Week 1 and time will tell if they will join Tampa Bay in Week 2 as an undefeated.

Dude in my first round, I was home team, and I went last every single time. You've set up a three game series where I'm the visitor, and I'm going LAST two out of three games.

I'm sorry, but I, and nobody else, have control over who goes first as it is randomly done by the system. The only thing I have control over is setting your home map. I wish I did have control over who went first, but it is impossible unless the developers change the programming on the game settings. Again, I'm sorry for you going last each time.

Week 1 is all complete. Week 2 all games sent out. All is going well, and I hope everyone is enjoying the games so far. Let me know if there are any suggestions. The League leaders to date are: New York Yankees(Currently Undefeated), Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics(Tie-breaker/division wins), New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, and Los Angeles Dodgers. Congratulations current first place teams. Remember first place team in each division, team up with the other division leaders in your league to face the division leaders of the opposing league in the All-Star Game and a chance at winning a GA Medal for the winning team.

Games back means; How many games the first place team must lose and the teams behind must win to break even. If the first place team wins and the teams behind win, the games back remain the same. If the first place team wins and the teams behind loses, the first place team gains a 1 game advantage. If the first place team loses and the teams behind lose, the games back remain the same. If the first place team loses and the teams behind win, the teams behind gain a game towards breaking even with the first place team. If the first place team wins a game, but no game is played by the teams behind, the first place team gains a half game on the teams behind. If the first place team loses, but no game is played by the teams behind, the first place team loses a half game on the teams behind. If the teams behind win a game, but the first place team doesn't play a game, the teams behind gains a half a game on the first place team. If the teams behind lose a game, but the first place team doesn't play a game, the teams behind loses a half game on the first place team.

Hopefully this makes some sense. It can get complicated, but I am thinking of putting win percentage as a stat, for those whom don't understand as easily.

OK I get it now.
Wouldn't a simple points system be easier though? To me, my teams 6/6 (I was a reserve) should be a better score than 5/4 as it should always be better to have the points in the bag than games in hand.

It's based off of how Major League Baseball does their standings. I'm following their schedule and statistics as closely as possible, so a point system would be totally different than that of the MLB. Hockey and Soccer(Football) have the point system, but I am trying to do the MLB thing. Feel free to ask as many questions about the MLB, I am sure to answer your questions as accurately as possible.

Ok, just one more question then (I promise heh)
Division Wins & League Wins. Whats the difference? Aren't we just playing the other teams in our divisions in this first round?

EDIT : Just looked and we're not. What a weird way of doing it. Why do they bother with divisions if they travel to other divisions anyway?
