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

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Mon Dec 07, 2015 9:02 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.
[*]Direct result between participants.
[*]OSM (Obsilium Sorting Method)

For season 6 I will be looking to continue the divisions used in season 5. Last season's finishing position will be used to determine the division which participants are in for season 6. 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 January - We'll start the 6th season on 7 January.

im out sorry

i like to play classic but this format is bringing out the worst of it

last season i played shit and become third (beating the nr 1 and 2 and losing to nr 11 and 12)
this season i play well and become 7th

also i dont like the vertical setup of the divisions; at end of season there should be a playoff between the top 4 of both divisions for the Crown (semi finals and finals)
this is not football where a top team from div 1 will defeat the bottom team of div 2 99% of time so these relegation matches are nonsensical

also i would like to skip a season which is not possible in current format (supposing u made it to div 1, u will drop to div2)
this gives it a grindy obligatory feel which doesnt fit me

yes ofc fun and all but it has to make sense somehow and it doesnt atm
just had to say this

so gl to you all



edit:

actually this format would make more sense in equipped, however strange that might sound.

No need to apologise, it's always nice to have people in a tournament, but you're not obliged to take part if you don't feel it's for you.

Could I ask you to bob and feedback into this thread rather than the sign up one? viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1919 If discussions start here it makes it harder for me to see who is/isn't in.

btw If you'd like to set up an equipped league, I'd be happy to give you a hand/show you how Challonge works, just give me a shout on steam.
