Somebody already had a similiar idea, but it got lost somewhere, so I will restart it now.

I will create a league of 5 managers. The managers are no players, they are no generals, they only manage their teams, buy and sell players. They will have at least two teams of 3 players to manage, but only a certain amount of Warlight currency. With that currency they have to decide what players they will buy and to which team they will distribute them. The manager that wins the most games with his teams will win the league.

So to get started i will probe the general interest in this game mode. I will need 5 Warlighters to be the managers and minimum of 30 players, willing to be shifted around, bought and sold and playing games.

With Heyheuhei there is already the first Starplayer ready to make his manager proud.

So let me know if you want to participate, either as manager, or player.

Just to clarify, the managers don't give players in-game orders right? They just decide who your teammates will be?

What kinds of games? 1v1, team, ffa, mixed?

Also, do you have any idea how many games you would want to start at a time, and so on?

And yeah, I saw the two teams of 3, but it was prefaced with "at least" which might mean more types and such.

Yes. No in game orders, nothing. At the beginning Players will roughly be divided into 3 or 4 groups by me. Worth 1 to 4 Warlight Currency Units.
With each won game, managers will collect at least 1 Currency unit, which they can spend on New Players.


Players themselves might be prone to changes in their worth, according to the won games they are part of, getting the MVP of the game award etc. I have to ponder over the details for that.

Sounds kind of fun. How many games per player at a time do you envision? I've got my games cut down to 2 on the 2v2 ladder right now and it's kind of liberating, I don't want to get pinned down to 10 games at a time :)

Also, what settings? Strategic 1v1? Varying settings?

What will be the game count per player?

- One or two at maximum.


Why would a manager need more players than his teams has places (or at least the currency for them)?

- Every Manager has to cover the risk of any liability by himself. There will be no vacations honored and players that leave the League or stop playing, will have to be substituted. So a Reserve pool of players will be a necessity.

Which maps will be played?

- This being primarily focused on the Manager aspect, maps will change from game to game, making it harder for the manager to pick players, or forcing him look for good overall players instead of map specialists. (or many map specialists, that play certain maps for the manager)

What is the game mode, 3on3, 2on2, 1on1 FFA?

- The game mode will never be 1on1, nor will it be FFA. It will always be a team game, allthough the team sizes may vary. Managers should be able to construct a core team (or multiple) that work(s) well together, or substitute players according to animosities.

Will the price of players vary?

As being mentioned before, each game will have MVP award. The MVP and the games won to games played ratio will have an effect on the price of the player. Players can be sold to other managers and back into the player pool. When sold to other managers the price is fully open to the mutual agreement of the involved parties. When sold back into the pool, the players worth is reduced by one currency unit. Players worth may also be modified occasionally (being in the pool for too long for instance) by the allmighty Leagues Mastermind.


Will there be betting ?

- Like unknown I had an idea of betting on the results. But assuming that there will be a lot of organization involved, help would be needed. So unknown if you want to take part in it, organizing a betting system, welcome to the team.
My idea was buying shares of Managers and or players, betting on their development in the League. Managers will only be allowed to take part in gambling and shareholding, after a first season has been played and there will be a next season, preventing them from bankruptcy

Can there be more Managers?

- After a season is played and it has been a success that players, managers and spectators want to see continued, new managers can join, but with a lower Warlight Currency Unit amount than the average team of the previous season. Established Managers should have an advantage being part of it since the first hour.

Never mind then... intrigued but the managers (or those who have voiced interest) scare me and the format just isn't my cup of tea.

I'll put myself out as a potential manager. I probably pay way too much attention to who plays for my own good anyway.

I'd like to hear the official rules, and the nuts and bolts of how it works though.

@ Ace Windu as much as id like to be a manager, i will not start as one, so that my position as organizer remains unbiased.

@Richard To ensure the success of the league and acceptance of spectators and players alike, the majority of the managers will be carefully picked (or elected). Maybe there will be one spot open to randomization.
