The Goo-Power Championship - Season 8 (Sign up by 15 May)

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Sun Apr 17, 2016 9:22 am

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

As an example please see the link -

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) in the case of a tie involving more than 2 players.
[*]Tie Breaker between participants if positions are still tied.

For Season 8 I will be looking to continue the divisions used in Season 7 Last season's finishing position will be used to determine the division which participants are in for season 7. 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 15 May- We'll start the 8th season on 16 May.

Signups so far:
Vurtan - 20 days

Dear Sir Sam,

Thank you for your correspondance dated Sunday 17th April, regarding the latest season of the tournament known commonly as the "Goo Power Championship".

I very much express interest in participating this season, so if you could be a kind fellow and add me to the list of participants I would be ever so grateful.

Warmest regards,
MattyRasker Esq.

Hmm, school stuff have ended by 15 May pretty much, but I think I should wait until season 9. I don't really know how to use or react to new cards yet so that just throws me off xD
