You are welcome Edge!
I am interested to see as well what to expect about Rankings, so I made my monthly ongoing events analysis, based on the state of yesterday morning. Here are the updated google docs:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ao0SlM6Kv6CE1-Ha5mBIrI6nj4Uft2lMaE25qbXxWHs/pub?gid=648212339&output=html

I collected the present finals (F, SF, QF) positions from the ongoing events (+ the China Masters won by MoD, and the Malvia 250 Series won by Edge), so here are the players with 2 or more finals (the + means still in the event):
  • 6
    MoD (1W, 1F+, 1SF, 1QF+, 2QF)
  • 4
    Edge (1W, 1F+, 1SF, 1QF)
    Panagiotis (1F+, 1SF+, 1QF+, 1QF)
    Wini (1F, 1SF, 1QF+, 1QF)
    Timinator (1F+, 3QF)
    Jackie Treehorn (2SF, 2QF)
    rakleader (1SF, 1QF+, 2QF)
    ACL Tears (1F+, 1SF+, 1QF+, 1QF)
  • 3
    MIFRAN (1F+, 2SF)
    ps (3 QF)
    Doron Hoh (1SF+, 2QF)
  • 2
    dry-clean-only (1F+, 1QF)
    Hunta (1SF+, 1QF)
    Ollie (2F+)
    malakkan (1SF, 1QF+)
    culpa (1SF, 1QF)
    ANT (2QF+)
    Muli (2QF)
    Rento (2SF+)
Additionally I collected all present major events and QF+ small events point status for the TOP20 + players above, and here are the Rankings based on those present minimum points (in the brackets the possible maximum points but only from majors):



As you can see, counting the ongoing events, Pana still has got a nice (actually higher) point lead.
Interesting, but all the Big Four already out from the Battle Islands V Masters :O MoD already out from the Guiroma Masters too, but the other three still in, so the fight in the TOP3 is very close!
MoD, after he won his first Masters, is closer to them, but as I wrote, he is already out from all the running majors, so his only hope (for the takeover) the coming MA Grand Slam event ;)

Additional interesting stuff, that seems Buns started to play only in the important events, which means the majors (Grand Slam and Masters). Logical step in Rankings point of view, because the best six results of the Big Four already very high, the only possibility them for bigger additional points from this section is winning 500 Series events. So I would do the same than Buns, but join to the 500 Series events as well (and those new results will be good as well when the old results start to expire!)

Wini, build on his excellent Masters performance so far, getting closer and closer to the Big Four, although he lost the important Masters final againts MoD.

Milly seems will come back to the TOP10, and join to the illustrious group of rakleader, ANT and Hades (although reakleader has got the biggest potential (regarding present and possible maximum points) among them to reach the Big Four in the near future)

FlyingBender's falling continues :(((((
I hope that he will be able to solve all obstacles and can start again the focused play on the Tour ;)

Unfortunatelly I don't have more time to continue the analysis :(
Only one more thing. Timinator still couldn't get his first Tour event win, what means (for me) the avarage field of the Tour is quite strong :D

Could you limit it so that players can only compete in 1 tournament of any size at once, I skimmed the rules so you might already do this.

Maybe tomjh speaks about that the smaller events are filled up very quickly, I don't know.

@Doron Hoh
You are welcome.
And good luck for the mountaineering, you are on a good way ;)


New event finished, so congrats time :D

31. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - GME III
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21836
A very huge congratulation to MoD for his 6th (!) Tour event win!
This performance is marvellous! I think his base play level is one of the highest, however, seems that he has problems when he should raise this base level and should play in a more focused way? (regarding his missing (compared to his other results leastwise :P ) major results) Who knows :D
Congrats to Edge as well for his second final in a short time.
And congrats to malakkan and culpa too.

Here are the TOP16:



Just for fun, I checked what the rankings is if we consider only the smaller events with the best six results limit. Here are the TOP10 of this virtual Rankings:



Edit: this list is without the two event finished in this month, but no time to update it now :|
Edit2: MoD has got now 1930, and Edge is the TOP10 too with 755 points :D

Two finished events, so congrats time again :O

22. AWP World Tour - 250 Series - Georgia Army Cap
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21039
Congrats to dry-clean-only for his first Tour event win!
With this win he will be in TOP50 sure (so one Wild Card released for others :D )
Congrats to ACL Tears as well for his first Final (after one QF and SF).
And congrats to BigMack for his first SF, and Buns too (although no points counted for him, because his already many best six finals :P )

Here are the TOP16:



32. AWP World Tour - 250 Series - Sri Lanka
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21949
Congrats to MIFRAN for his 5th (!) Tour event wins!
With this win he will get 160 additional points, and likely will regain the second position, but (far) not enough for the first one.
Congrats to JV for hist first Final (it took a long time :P ), and likely will be in TOP50 too (so again a released Wild Card :D ).
Congrats to Jackie and Edge as well, they performances recently are very impressive!

Here are the TOP16:

Congrats time, because new events finished again (a lot of finished events in this month :O )

37. AWP World Tour - 250 Series - Basileia
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=22349
Congrats to Hunta for his first Tour event win!
His good rank is not a coincidence, I mean I didn't know him earlier, but seems he is a good player. He is a new (? :P ) Odin (if I remember well, Odin from Norway too)
Congrats to Nynwhen for his first final!
Congrats to Rodolfo and Rento for their first semifinals!

Here are the TOP16:




The last Challenger were finished too.
Reminder: no Tour points for these Challengers, but the TOP4 win Wild Cards (=Monday invitations) to any Tour events. The winner won 4 Wild Cards, the 2nd won 2 Wild Cards, and the two semifinalists won 1 Wild Card. Just write me (PM or any Tour topic) in which events want to use them.

Besides these new result announcements, I would like to write a few words about the templates, especially in the "Clay season".

You can read more about the Tour templates here:
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/203213-awp-world-tour-templates

And about the different Tour seasons (and other concepts) in my 5th post.
I tried to translate the tennis surface into the Warlight AWP World Tour.
So the SR templates will be the Hard courts (the most tennis courts are hard)
The WR templates will be the Grass courts (the luck is the Grass factor :) )
Finally, the Clay courts will be the templates with extra settings (like LD, MA, Commanders, LFD, no split, not normal fogs, kill rates, bonuses, etc.)
This is the grouping method (G-Grass, H-Hard, C-Clay) in the previous post too.

On the ATP World Tour there are seasons, like Clay, Grass seasons.
My plan (if the majority can accept it :) ), there will be seasons in AWP World Tour too.
  • After the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) until the Poland Masters (first week of June) will be the "Clay" season (using templates with extra settings).
    It means three major and three 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) seven 250 Series events (25% of the Tour events)
  • After the Poland Masters (first week of June) until before the Treasure Map Masters (the last week of July) will be the "Grass" season (using WR templates).
    It means one major and two 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) five 250 Series events (15% of the Tour events)
  • From the Treasure Map Masters (first week of August) until the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) will be the "Hard" season (using SR templates).
    It means eight major and seven 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) sixteen 250 Series events (60% of the Tour events)
Many of you probably noticed, that recently I create Tour events in row with weird settings.
Well, this is because we are in the "Clay season" ;)

I should have written this here earlier (before the "Clay season" started...) but I have a slight backlogs in the Tour administration tasks :|
But better late than never, so here are the templates in the present and the next "Clay seasons":

Here are the current one:
And here are the next one:
(of course if there will be a (some) new popular template(s) this can be changed in the future)
I (helped by a Template Panel) chose these templates because they cover almost all special settings!
  • MA
    Snow Mountain MA, Battle Islands V - MA
  • LD
    Turkey LD, Greece II - auto LD
  • Commanders
    Strategic Commanders
  • No-Split
    Macedonia
  • Kill rates
    Fast Earth
  • Extra armies
    French Brawl
  • Army Cap
    Georgia
  • Fog Level
    Macedonia (Dense), Greece II - auto LD (Light), French Brawl (Light)
  • Distribution
    Greece II - auto LD (automatic), Sumo (automatic), Great Lakes (LFD) and more other dist. combinations
  • Weird maps (bonuses)
    Poland, Elitist Africa, Sumo
  • Cards
    OP, OD, Diplo, Airlift, Sanction, Emergency blockade, Blockade, Reinf., Gift, Recon, Bomb, No Cards
    Only the Spy and Surveillance cards weren't used in any templates above
I hope that you will enjoy the 13 weeks during the "Clay seasons" as well (I will make separate summaries, statistics about these "Clay seasons" btw. Who will be Nadal in Warlight? :D)

@psykkoman
Thank you very much for your template proposal!
(And would very welcome from anybody else if you give your template suggestions here or in any other way (e.g. PM) anytime in the future!)

Although, this template "was discussed" in the Template Panel, and seems it is "terrible" :O
Btw, as I wrote, almost all the card will be used in the templates of the "Clay season", so I can accept that won't be a template with many cards (anyway, I like a lot the many card templates, this tourney was one of my favourites for example: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=4456)

@Ollie
Hehe, Dunga reborned in Hungary, with a much weaker English :/
Another difference between us, that I would easy beat Qi in that game :D :P

Jokes aside, it was a very cool idea, 1 year before I join to this magnificient game, Warlight :)
(and he seems was obsessed of the competitions just like me :D)
Anyway, there was another ATP World Tour clone, the WSOW by Ineffable
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/65257-wsow-season-1-summery

In that time, I didn't adore the tennis yet, so I have no idea that system is based on the ATP World Tour, I just simple enjoy it (until the evil ChrisCMU broke my dreams :P :D )
Oh man, those good old days... when I still had enough motivation fuel for the competitive play :|

Ok, coming back to the present, Ollie, join to the Tour events more :P

I was worried you were going to write something like that :(
But I can fully understand it (same shoes :/ )

Anyway, if you will have a little more time, don't forget, to conquer the Rankings, you don't need to play in all the 50 events! If you play only the 12 monthly major events plus 6-12 500 Series events (which means only 18-24 single elimination tournament during a year), you will get good chance to reach very close to your best possible yearly result (because only about 500 additional points possible for a good player if he/she plays in all 250 Series events (and not only in the 12 major and 12 500 Series events)).

But if you won't have time for these 18(-24) tournements during a year at all, don't forget, to join 1-1 random Tour event (with your favourite template) still is fun and a good challenge (because the strong avarage field on the Tour) ;)

Two new events finished during my turtle update work... so my favorite part is now, the congrats time :D

25. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - Red Dead Redemption
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21243
Congratulation to ACL Tears for his first Tour event win!
With the earned 490 points, he will be raise about 10 positions (26th->16th).
I think, we will find him in the TOP10 soon!
Congrats to Ollie as well, for his first Final, after a QF and SF. So now only missing the event Win from the row, but lets see the next finished event :D

Here are the TOP16:



28. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - Post-Melt Antarctica
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21435
Congratulation to Ollie for his first Tour event win!
With the scored 800 points from these two 500 Series events, he will be in the TOP20, but this is irrelevant in his case, because he (just like Quicksilver or Sultan for example) play on the Tour only occasionally, and miss many "mandatory" major events. But no any problem with it, because the Rankings only an additional fun factor of the Tour, playing in and winning a single Tour event still very fun ;)
Congrats to Timinator for his second 500 Series Final. Soon or later his first Tour event win will arrive, I am sure ;)

Here are the TOP16:



With these two late finished events, the 2016 Tour year finished.
I wanted to do a separate google docs only for all 2016 events (included all smaller event results, not only the best six), but now (because many 2017 Tour events finished earlier and updated into the google docs) it would mean many additional manual work :|
So postponed. Or if there is a volunteer for this nice work :D

If you want retire, first come and make some great things on the Tour (winning a few Grand Slams plus 80%+ win% plus some more stuff), and after you can retire ;)
