Okay, my finals are basically over, so it's time for a new tourney! I know there is another tourney just like this already ongoing, and vykingsfan is doing a great job with it, but his is nearly half over and I wanted to start my own Game Load
: Okay, so this will be the full 162 game MLB Season, following the same schedule as the big leagues. This means you will be playing around 8 games at a time, so No Freemies
. More specifically, I will send out 10 days worth of games (in the real schedule) every week. Most of the time, teams play about 6 games in a week, so each round, you will most likely play 8 or 9 games. My goal is to play the World Series around the same time as the real World Series, so our regular season needs to finish before the real regular season, as the playoffs will probably take longer.Reserves
: I will take a few reserves, but only about 3-5 reserves for now, because a reserve signing up now will not even remember this tournament exists in July or August when they will be needed.My Rules
: Join your games in 48 hours unless you have a valid excuse. DO NOT join anyone elses games. I will be sending PM's individually this tournament so that this doesn't happen. Therefore, you have to go out of your way to join someone elses game. If you do that, you WILL be kicked.Map/Settings
: The map is totally up to you. Everyone will have a home map, picked from any of the 160ish maps on CC at the time of sign up. You may pick a beta map if you so desire, BUT if you do, pick a non-beta backup as well
, so that if the beta map goes down for a little while, you still have a map to play on.
Default settings will be: Standard, 1v1, Auto, Seq, along with your map, you have to pick spoils, reinforcements, and fog of war settings
So here is an example post:in, Cardinals
American Civil War
flat, chained, foggyEnd of the Year
: This will be run exactly
like the MLB, so there will be 4 teams in the playoffs from each league, the 3 Division Winners and a Wild Card, and, if necessary, I will use MLB Tiebreaker Rules
. In the Tiebreaker Rules, there are lots of small, specific conditions, so when we get near the end of the season, I will post any relevant rules. The first round of the MLB playoffs (the Division Series) is 5 games, the second round (the League Championship Series) is 7 games, and the final round (the World Series) is 7 games.Home Field Advantage
: In the League Playoffs, home field advantage is determined by regular season record, then tiebreakers. In the World Series, home field advantage is decided by the All Star Game.The All Star Game
: For the All Star Game, I will take the four would-be playoff teams at that point, about 90-100 games into the season (around July 15thish in the real MLB), for each league. They will then play 2 "innings" each, 1 inning=1 game, against their counterpart from the opposite league, on the USA West map, the best map for Anaheim (where the 2010 All-Star Game is). The settings will be Escalating, Chained, Sunny. The top team in each league will also play a 3rd game against each other. Whichever league wins 5 or more of these 9 "innings" wins the All Star Game, and home-field advantage for the World Series.Remember, I am expecting this tournament to last at least 6-7 months, please be prepared to put that amount of time into the tournament.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
