Small Earth League restart. huddyj back as manager: 4/5/2019 07:26:36

Hi everyone. I'm back after a couple of years away from the game, and am keen to resuscitate the Small Earth P/R League I created back in the day.

Most likely, it will run in a similar manner to the way it previously was run, but my plan is to make all groups equal in the restart, and then use the results from those groups to divide players.

Expressions of interest now welcome, just post on this thread.

EDIT: Invitations have been sent. New players can still sign up, but there is very limited space. New players (on a first-in-first-served basis) will be invited to tournaments until they fill up. After that they will be added to the wait list.

Current wait-list: (these players will all be sent invitations next week)

Hi all, and welcome back to the Small Earth P/R League! (league administrator, huddyj)
Game template: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=721086

Start Cut-Off Date: May 1st

This season is made up of 5 equal groups, with returning players seeded at the league administrator's discretion based on past results. New players will be evenly distributed across all groups.

Rule changes since last season:

- No rule changes

Current plan for seeding past players

My current plan is to only rank those players who have reached Group C level or higher, and use the results of their last 3 seasons, with wins in Group C counting as 1 point, wins in Group B counting as 2 points, and wins in Group A counting as 3 points. (assuming 9 matches a season, max possible score would be 81 points by sweeping Group A on three occasions) A total of 20 players (4 per group) will receive a seeding.

Here are the tournament links so you can follow the league's progress: Note that because this season will start with equal groups, the tournaments will be named with numbers rather than letters to differentiate.

Group 1: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=29175
Group 2: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=29176
Group 3: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=29177
Group 4: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=29178
Group 5: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=29179

New players are welcome to sign up on this thread or by messaging me.

You can get all the tournament links and league history for last season by checking out the thread from Season 15: https://www.warzone.com/Forum/305988-small-earth-promotionrelegation-league-season-15

Small Earth 1v1 League Concept and Rules

Concept

The Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League is a seasonal group of round-robin tournaments, always on the “Small Earth” map with standard coin settings. At the end of each season, the top players of each group are promoted to the next group above. Bottom players are relegated to the next group below. Middle players remain in the same group.

The league is meant to appeal to players who want to see, over the course of several seasons, where their natural level of competition might take them. For new, skilled participants, this means patience in getting to the levels where they will be challenged. Hopefully, that is part of the fun. The idea is to see how quickly you can progress, how long you can stay high, or how long it takes to stop a skid.

Rules

The league is run with a balance of predictability and flexibility. Final decisions are made by the league administrator with an attempt to consider input of league players.

The model will typically be to have the top three promote and the bottom three relegate but there are exceptions. Where there is a default – a player becoming inactive or asking to bow out of the league – there can be more promotions and less relegations to fill in the vacancy. Where this happens in several groups there can be a lot of shuffling. The principle, though, is to usually have at least one player from each group relegated. Several retirements means fewer relegations and more super-promotions to keep the groups filled.

Payers are kicked from the league if they have 3 or more boots in a season, unless there is a really good reason for the boots. Kicked players can only return as a new player in the bottom group.
Vacations are honoured, however, any player taking more than 3 vacations in a single season will be kicked from the league and can only return in future season as a new player in the bottom group.

Placements in a round-robin are determined by number of wins. In the event of a tie, placements are determined by head-to-head results among the tied. Occasionally, there are loops of ties that cannot be resolved by the head-to-head rule. If this is the case, ties will be broken by the following (in order of preference):

1: No. of Boots. Boots are penalised in resolving ties not solved by the head to head rule. Booted players are moved to the bottom of the tie, and head-to-head is applied again between players with the same amount of boots.
2: Overall win/loss ratio. (The total wins of each player you defeated versus the total wins of each player you lost against). It comes down to the number of wins by the players that a player have won against. Note Head-to-Head reapplied after, if this solves the tier for some but not all.
3: Tie-break tournament. (Unless such a tournament would cause lengthy delays for the league)
4: Average turn-speed (Last resort. only if a tie-break tournament fails to resolve the tie, or would take too long to complete)(where a tie-break tournament has resulted in another tie, average turn speed within the tie-break tournament will be used to split the tie)

Anyone can join the league, members and non-members alike, simply by request in the most recent “Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League” forum thread. New players begin in the bottom group or in an expansion group. Promotions from expansion groups depend on numbers within the new groups.

Before the beginning of each season, a summary of the movements will be announced to allow for questions or corrections. The league works most smoothly if those who wish to bow out let the administrator know before the new season begins instead of simply declining to play after the groups have been determined and tournaments begun.

i will give you an advice about groups
make a full ranking based on how the turnament's of last season ended
then continue adding the new players who gonna join
and then make the group's kinda "equally" based on the the previous season's of this PR League

*to solve the problem of "players of last season of PR League who are retired or didnt respond or said no to joing again" just get them out of the ranking.

base on the full ranking you will make you should make Group A,B,C,D,E,F,G etc.

Dont forget to make the update" the promoted names higher than the relegation's

*bad english
i hope i made sense :P

i could help, if you need it tho @huddyj
