With the IPL 2013 finishing soon, i'd like to run a tournament in the same format.
Games will be 2v2 doubles with fixed settings automatic, sequential, 20 round limit. Home map and remaining settings to be chosen by team on signup. There will be 9 teams (18 players).
Format is double round robin with top 4 placed teams advancing to playoffs.
Double Round Robin: Two games will be played against each other team, using each teams home settings. Two points for a win, zero for a loss. In the case of a tie for a playoff spot at the end of the double round robin, then Net Round Rate (NRR) will be considered across all games, which is determined by -x for each win, and +x for each loss, where x is the number of rounds the game lasted for. The team(s) with the better NRR would advance to the playoffs. If teams are tied for both points and NRR then a game will be played on random map and settings to decide. Playoffs: Q1: rank 1 plays rank 2 -> winner advances to final, loser advances to Q2 Eliminator: rank 3 plays rank 4 -> winner advances to Q2 Winner of Q2 advances to the final, and winner of the final wins the tournament. The 4 playoff games will be played on a random map with random settings.
There will be 9 teams, as in the IPL 2013:

You may pick an available franchise on signup. I will aim to have each team in no more than 2 games at a time, so freemiums are welcome if they reserve 2 spots for the tournament.
