Please read this post fully before commenting on this thread so you know how everything works.

From now on i'll be taking over as the organizer of the Captain's League. Last season was plagued by boots and retirements so i've decided to not invest any time into clearing that up and just start preparing for the next season of Captain's League

Schedule:
up to line-up submission is deadline and tournaments are set to begin at certain moments
Sign-ups and template submissions    November 19th 2pm GMT (UK time)
captain and template selections      November 26th 2pm GMT
captain's drafting                   December 9th 2pm GMT (shouldn't be too much of a problem if captains are active enough)
template voting                      December 9th 2pm GMT
line-up submission                   December 24th 2pm GMT
3v3 start date                       Januari 2nd 2pm GMT
2v2 #1 start date                    Januari 5th 2pm GMT
2v2 #2 and 1v1 #1 start date         Januari 8th 2pm GMT
1v1 #2 and 1v1 #3 start date         Januari 11th 2pm GMT
1v1 #4 start date                    Januari 14th 2pm GMT



Rule changes:
There will be a few changes in the rules from previous season.
1. 1v1 wins give 2 points, 2v2 wins give 3 points and 3v3 wins give 4 points
2. The number of 1v1 tournamens will be decreased from 5 to 4
3. Only 1 player on a team is allowed to play 2 1v1 tournaments meaning you need at least 3 players for 1v1 games
4. Retirements will be changed fully on how it is handled and will be discussed in it's own section.



Captain's League Format:
Depending on the amount of sign-ups there will be a certain amount of teams competing in this competition. Each team has their own captain who gets the change to draft the other players who have signed up for the league.

Each team consists out of 1 captain, 7 members and 1 substitute in case of emergency.
The draft for the members and substitute will start after all the sign-ups have closed and will be done in a snake format where the order from will be randomly decided.

After the draft is done all templates which will be played and the players selected by the captain's will be announced in a live stream.

There will be a total of 7 tournaments, four 1v1, two 2v2 and one 3v3, which will be starting on different dates (specifics found in the schedule). Each team has to use their captain and all 7 members at least once and twice at most. There has to be at least 3 different players on the 4 1v1 tournaments as well.

1v1 tournament will always have 1 game ongoing at a time (exception is replacement games, ruling for this is in that section), but team tournaments will be different. If the amount of teams participating in the Captain's League is 6 or higher then team tournaments will have 2 games ongoing at a time while if it's lower there will only be 1 game ongoing at a time (exception for replacement games as well).


Discord server:
https://discord.gg/BPs4Zu2
In here I will post announcements/updates, a chat channel for just me with all of the captain's and just a channel to talk with all of the other participants who are interested in joining the Captain's League.
Each team will get their own private chat on this server as well to communicate with each other for the duration of the season.

Joining the discord server isn't a must to participate but will be for captain's and their back-ups to communicate with me and each other.


Retirements:
Captain's or their back-up have to declare inactive players as retired in the designated channel on our discord server. After declaring a player inactive the team has 168 hours (7 days, 1 week) to announce who will be replacing the inactive player and on which template(s). For this they are able to use their substitute.
If the inactive players is in team games replacement games will be made from games which haven't had the distribution happen on the time of declaring the player inactive. Any newly created games from this point onwards from the tournament have to be surrendered by the team with a retirement.

Replacement games are only made when there is no possibility for any of the 2 teams involved to get more then 2 games ongoing at a time. For team games this means games are created when the other team has finished almost all of their games in the tournament before getting replacement games while 1v1 can always have a replacement game made at the point of declaring retirement.

A retired player can't come back into play in the same season but can join back in the season after if they can show they are really active again.


Template voting:
I will announce more rules in regards to this when we start the voting. Just saying all participants who signed up are allowed to vote for the templates which have been selected.


Sign-up rules:
every player can sign up to participate a member of this league for this season.

If you are interested in being a captain you can say this in your sign-up post as well. It would be great to have to have some additional information of why you'd like to be a captain as well. Captain's have to use Discord in order to be choosen.

Every player is allowed to submit templates in their sign-up post as well. You can submit 1 1v1, 1 2v2 and 1 3v3 template in your sign up using the following template:

Template name:
Example game:
Map name:

Very active, can handle a lot of games.
Very communicative, adapt well to different people, highly diplomatic.
Able to play 1v1, FFA and team games well.
Have muli's userscript, so able to avoid boot problems easily.
Know how to play on all different settings.
Have made a lot of templates.
Played over 1700 different maps, know how to analyze map well.
Have experience leading teams in tournaments.

Ready to listen to other player ideas and follow them if they can prove them scientifically to be better.

I am highly interested in assembling a team to take 1st place. Ready to follow any requirements necessary to get my application as captain accepted. I like to be a leader and I take every opportunity to be one. Don't have prepared any template for a time being. Will look through my list of templates, review them and make suggestions for templates within next 72 hours.

I think it would've been a better move to relaunch this entirely with a different thread name. Everyone who sees Captain's League will think "Fuck no , Not playing after season 3 failure" .

I've been working on setting up a public spreadsheet with the basic information so far. This being the signed-up players, suggested template and the rules which have been mentioned in the first post but i feel like clearer and includes on how templates will be voted on for this season.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XnjsDFcVwdF8M04vlm8y2_PM0EgzpXtiC6VcwR5aAos/edit?usp=sharing

Further I'm thinking about a system which will allow team captain's to sign a certain amount of their members for next season depending on the place they finish in during this season. This is still a proof of concept and will be discussed in public as well.

If anything is unclear in regards to the rules feel free to ask me in private or on discord where you can find me in the Captain's League server

S3 is plagued by inactivity, it would need like 30 replacement games or so in total, i'll need to check discord chat history to make sure which games it are and who will be replacing who then.

After looking at the interest in the Manager League within a time period of 24 hours and the low amount of sign-ups for Captain's League so far i've decided to drop the Captain's League for right now.
