We have decided to start the template selection process a bit early this time. We are currently accepting templates for Clan League 9. Anyone in the clan league can submit them here. We will give people up to 11/30/2016 to submit entries.
One of the main problems last season was the size of the template pool. Having twenty-five 1v1 templates allowed clans to strategically vote and harm templates by voting them down. We've decided to address this problem by reducing the pool of templates over which clans vote.
The templates will be pruned down to a manageable list (twelve 1v1s, six 2v2s, four 3v3s) by a template panel. We're still in the process of working out who will be a part of this panel. The panel is responsible for ensuring diversity across templates, maps and settings. They will also try their best to alternate between similar templates(Strat ME, Strat MME) and ensure such templates rotate every other season. This will be a bit subjective and we hope that it works out.
Once this panel has pruned the list to a manageable size, all clans in Group A and B
will be asked to rank every template in the order of preference(1 being most preferred and 12 being least). These votes will be resolved using the Single Transferrable Voting system. You can learn more about it here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLH_w5kHJpA
Some template recommendations:
- Luck percentage <= 16%
- Different board before picks on every game.
Please use the following format to submit a template. It will help the panel organize the templates and prune the list. Please do not submit templates which have already been submitted. However, if you have a template which is similar, but has minor differences, make sure to submit it as a new template and highlight them.
