Clan Medals

Postby jpcloet on Fri Dec 03, 2010 10:53 am

The Clan Directors are proud to announce that clans will be receiving a Clan Achievement Medal. This medal will be handed out to qualifying winners of Clan Wars, and other Clan Tournaments/Leagues.
____________________________________________________

General

The clan medal will be handed out to players and will encourage players to join clans and participate in wars.

Qualifying Challenges

In order to have clan game creation privileges, a Clan War must be of at least 40 games. This will allow clans to custom build any challenge they wish in their negotiations.

However, in order to receive a Clan Achievement Medal, the war and players will need to meet ALL of the following criteria:

Wars:
  • A War must be of a minimum 41 games, and must have a specific defined process for determining a winner, prior to the start of the War. A random triples neutral game is recommended.
  • War restrictions must adhere to the basic restrictions inherently built by clans meaning No Freestyle, No Manual, No Speed
  • The game composition must comprise 100% Team Games. Recommended setup is 25% Doubles, 25% Triples, 25% Quadruples and 25% Choice of Team Games
  • Clan Wars must be fairly negotiated
  • Must be considered a reasonably fair War, meaning farming of medals will not be allowed. Any questionable war will be discussed first by the Clan Directors and if any further discussion is needed, the Clan Leader's Association will be consulted.
  • A minimum of 10 players must be used.
  • Both Clans must follow the 1 Clan Rule
  • Clan War thread must be adequately documented to ensure medals are properly given out, primarily game numbers and winner

Players:
  • Be on the winning clan
  • Have played the minimum game requirement (See Example)
  • Have a minimum of 1 win

show: Minimum Game Requirement Example


Historical Awarding of Medals
Over the last 4 years, there have been clan wars of all sizes (3 games to 120 games) and formats. In defining which ones in the past will receive them, we looked at the average war size in each year and overall. The intention was to grant medals at that level, however, there were challenges only a few games less in some years, and a large war in 2010 raised the average. The most fair level was to look at median and there was a distinct cutoff point in all the years.

All wars with a total Final Score of 36 or more points/games will be awarded medals. No other criteria will be applied to historical wars, with the exception of farming and proper documentation.
Players will have to still meet the above player requirements.

This means approximately 1500 player medals will be handed out. The Clan Directors will be doing this work over the next several weeks. Once the work is complete, we will be contacting clans that are missing any documentation, and also taking questions in case we made mistakes or missed a war. There were approximately 5000 games reviewed in the process.

So having 5 singles in a round qualifying as 1 point in the clan war would not be allowed for the total game count?

I'm not sure I agree with that or a 41 game minimum, 40 would seem to suffice because if there is a need for a tie-breaker, clans will make that 41st game anyway.

Having singles is allowed for Clan gaming privileges but will not be allowed for the purposes of medals. We want to promote team games. Clans can still have challenges/wars with singles in them but they will be non-qualifying medal events.

We've had issue in the past around clans unable to decide on a tie-breaker. Best to get it out of the way up front, plus if you build it in up front, it won't delay the start of your next war if your clan focuses on one event at a time.

I'll keep this in mind and will run a thread about this later on in the CLA combined with its impact and/or limitations if clans still want this to be a part of challenges.

I'd vote for singles games to be allowed in medal-qualifying clan wars, maybe subject to a max ratio of singles:team games (ie, no more than 10% of the total points can come from singles). Denying singles games altogether seems a bit harsh.

I believe it should be available today once Admin does their thing. I just saw a preview myself a few minutes ago. Look for it this weekend and if I have time on Sunday, some of you may actually get some of the historical ones awarded this weekend.

Good news.

Few comments:
-- War restrictions must adhere to the basic restrictions inherently built by clans meaning No Freestyle, No Manual, No Speed
Does it mean Nukes are now officially allowed in all wars? Beta maps?

-- The game composition must comprise 100% Team Games
I think singles should be allowed in ratio 1:9 (1 point singles for 9 team points).

-- Clan Wars must be fairly negotiated
What does it mean?


Over all - it is ok, glad to see this coming, we want more shiny trophies :D.

Nukes have always been allowed but most of us have negotiated them out.

Clan wars must be fairly negotiated. - There have been some complaints as to various negotiation tactics. This in part this sets up some future things and ways of working on clan events. "Fair" is the key word.

Looks good JP, I like the emphasis on the odd number of games so there aren't any ties. I don't mind singles being left out as singles is too luck based imho and doesn't really test a clan out.

Nom nom nom more medals. Great job jp on getting CC to put these in, you are one of the more unsung heroes on this site, putting a lot of effort into the clans which for many long term players are the only reason to stick around!

So if a challenge didn't have 41 games, it doesn't count for a medal?

Minimum of 41 games going forward. Historical awarding of medals had a cutoff on total points, many which had more than 40 games due to singles in some cases.
