The Goo-Power Championship-Season 5 (Sign up by 6 November)

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Sun Oct 04, 2015 2:28 pm

The Goo-Power championship is a seasonal league up based on asynchronous play.

As an example please see the link - http://challonge.com/goopower2_rdragon

It will be set to give 3 points per win (which in itself makes a win the desirable outcome over settling for a draw)
1 point for a draw.

[*] As a default all fixtures are to be played via Asynchronous mode.
[*] The default number of turns is to be 20.
[*] We'll use Classic Chaos as the default mode of play.
[*] As a default we'll set match duration to the 15 days this time (hopefully that avoids the timeouts that we had in season 3), but with the proviso that we'll allow people to select the option of shorter durations if they both players wish and longer duration if they know in advance that they will be absent from the game for vacations and such like.
(If agreed between both participants you could play games live if both of you are online at the same time, similarly you could set any turn times/turn numbers you like if agreed by both participants).

At the end of the season to distinguish between participants that are otherwise level the sorting order is.
[*]VP difference
[*]VP scored
[*]Direct result between participants.

NB - VPs are not to be used to claim a victory - A game which goes to its turn limit is considered a draw, VP are only used to be used for sorting between places within the table.

(WE'LL ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT THE DIFFERENT SYSTEMS THAT WE'VE TRIED IN THE FEEDBACK THREAD I'LL THEN EDIT THE SORTING AS APPROPRIATE)

For season 5 I will be looking to continue the divisions used in season 4. Last season's finishing position will be used to determine the division which participants are in for season 4. I'll be filtering any new players into the bottom division(s). I'm looking to do this using a pyramid system as opposed to a straight league ladder. (Top Division, Second Division A, Second Division B, Third Division A, Third Division B, Third Division C, Third Division D) That way there can be quick movement between levels.

At the end of the season there will be promotion and relegation between divisions - I'll give exact numbers on this once we see how many players we've got and the league is set up and running.

The only thing it relies on is that you play a game against each of your opponents and then submit scores. You could arrange that via the forum, via the lawandchaos website, via steam or via PM.

All I'd ask if people entered was that they fulfilled all their fixtures - I can give walkovers for any that don't complete, but I'd prefer not to have to. You'll be playing 10 to 12 asynchronous games in 1 month, is that something which you're happy to commit to?

I'm looking for signups by 6 November - We'll start the 5th season on 7 November.

I) There aren't 15 day timers for asynchronous games. I felt 20 days was comfortable, playing the early turns out slower and then finishing games up when they were becoming decisive.

II) Isn't the deadline a bit short, compared to how previous signups have gone (few signups early, picks up at the end)?

III) Will the playoff matches be completed by October 7?

IV) Please don't tiebreak by VP.

I made a rookie mistake last season, but that gives me the space to improve...

Count me in, if they fix the missing keybindings with the v0.30 release.

Cheers Obs, I've corrected the dates (what threw me was how quick we finished this season).

Please could any VP discussion go in the feedback thread rather than this one. It makes a harder job for me to see who is signing up if discussion starts happening in here.
