The USA League - Season II: 5/27/2016 05:42:33

Level 63

The USA League - Now in HiDef!


This league is a revival of the old USA League created back in June 2014. For further information, please see: https://www.warlight.net/Forum/45143-usa-league

Brief Overview:

The USA League is for players of all skill from the great country of America to come and do what Americans do – have some friendly competition to see who is the best at an online strategy game. It doesn't matter how good you are; what matters is that you represent your glorious country in a (figurative) armed conflict against other people.

League Format

The template for the USA League is once again undecided. Participants can choose whether to play on the same template every season, or have the winner of the current season decide the template for next season.

  • No alts. If I see anything that looks suspicious enough to be considered an alt, you can’t play (unless you clear it with me via PM).
  • No one outside the United States may participate. You must e-mail me a copy of your birth certificate, social security number, and a valid credit card if you are a United States citizen living abroad and want to participate. “British” people don’t count, even though you speak American like we do.
  • If you are booted from over half your games, you are automatically removed from the league.

* denotates unbreakable ties

I will create tiebreaking tournaments today for Groups A and F to determine the final results. (Here's the TL;DR)
In the meantime, those who want to join/leave the league for Season II can start doing so, either via PM or replying to this thread.

I will figure out promotions/relegations once I see the total count for people participating next season. As is, I already have a good idea of what the groups are going to be like, but I am going to wait for a definite number before announcing next season's groupings.

Sign-Ups, as mentioned above, start right now - currently, there is no set deadline yet as to when I will stop accepting players into the league.

Make America Great Again!

Here is the poll for voting on changes that will possibly be implemented for next season: http://goo.gl/forms/Sm0aaKybv8O0g4UK2

I feel like I haven't stressed this enough, but - this league is open to everyone, regardless of your skill level. If you are unsure about joining due to the fact that you think you aren't skilled enough, there is no reason to worry. You will be matched with players of your skill (given one or two seasons to accurately judge your skill level in relation to those already participating in the league) eventually, so there's never a concern about playing players way above your skill level.

In addition, all newcomers start at the bottom. No exceptions. Unless your bank account looks exceptionally well-off.

Here are the tie-breaking tournaments:

I'm planning on staying in the League. I don't care about the template as long as it's good 😂

4 player tournaments may be nice as the league would finish quicker but I think some slow players may make it last a while and there would be several ties with people going 2-1.

5 or 6 would be best imo!

I'd join, but unfortunately, I reside in the greatest nation of them all, Texas!

Just kidding. I'll join this. Texas couldn't get annexed quick enough by the US, and the balance of power between slave and free states was the only thing that kept us from immediately joining the union. We were American before we even left Mexico.

All newcomers have been noted.

Also, everyone who is participating, please take a few minutes to take the poll: http://goo.gl/forms/Sm0aaKybv8O0g4UK2

It will help me judge how to improve the league for next season.

The Group F Tiebreaker has finished.


Congrats to DontAttackMe for going undefeated! Des has retired and was booted from both his games, so he will be removed from the league. I'll wait for the results from the polls and the other tie-breaker to determine what this means, but DontAttackMe will not relegate for sure.

The Group A Tiebreaker...looks the same almost two weeks after I created it. Good news though, people can still join while we wait! Join!

As feared, the group A tie-breaker ended in yet another tie...

I will figure out what to do later, but for now I am thinking of forgoing a Season I champion and having ACL Tears, Master of the Dead and USA Biches as the joint winners of Season I.

Since there's no point in redoing the tie-breaker, I've decided that ACL Tears, Master of the Dead and USA Biches are the joint winners of Season I. Congratulations to all three!

Poll results are as follows:

I also got excellent suggestions for changing the league for next season. I appreciate all the constructive criticism!

I may need to decide myself for Smaller vs. Bigger Groups depending on the amount of players we have for next season. As is, the amount of Dropped/Inactive players is greater than newcomers. I cannot stress enough that this league is for all US Citizens regardless of whatever your skill level might be (Illegal Immigrants only have about one more season to play until Trump gets elected, so I won't worry about them joining).

However, since there is a clear majority of players who want rotating templates, I see no issue implementing that for Season II. As there was a three-way tie for Seasonal Winner, I will let ACL Tears, Master of the Dead, and USA Biches decide.

In the meantime, we are still open for newcomers, up until a template for Season II is decided. I will give a few days grace period if the template is chosen quickly, but considering how long both Group A and its tie-breaking tournament went on, I doubt we'll get results that soon.

I am roughly estimating Season II starts about two weeks from now, so that's when I'll stop accepting new players.
