I'm planning on creating a 3v3 P/R league with Cowboy as co-manager, if there's enough interest in the community. There are a few details I still need to work out, which is the purpose of this post.Template
: I'm looking for template nominations. I'll sort through them, and make a poll in about a week to choose the final template. I'm automatically going to add 3v3 Europe and 3v3 Biomes to the poll, but any other suggestions are welcome and will be added to the final poll.Teams
: There are two options for how teams would work: random or chosen.
Chosen would mean that you enter as a team of three, and are with that team for all seasons you play. This creates the potential problem of some members of the team retiring/quitting between seasons, while others want to continue. In this case, the rule would likely be that if one member of the team leaves, the two players remaining could choose a new third and maintain their slot, but if two members of the team leave, the third person would have to join or create a new team.
Random would work slightly differently. For the first season, players would choose their teams. Based on those results, divisions would be made for the second season, and in those divisions teams would be randomly selected. This ensures that good players aren't stuck with uncommunicative or unskilled members, and gets rid of the problem of retiring players forcing their teammates to adjust. After season two, the teams would be based off how long players have been in a division, and if they came from a higher or lower division, making the teams in each division as equal as possible. I'm attaching a poll at the bottom to decide if teams will be random or chosen.
There's also a second question of whether or not teams should be allowed to have alts, I'll add another poll question for that. Format
: The league would be in divisions of 4-7 teams. The first season divisions would be randomly assigned, and results would decide placements for the next seasons. After that, a set number of teams would promote and relegate, as in almosttricky's league. Since 3v3 games take significantly longer than 1v1s, it may be ideal to have fewer teams per division, so the league moves at a relatively quick pace. I'm adding a third poll question on what the ideal size would be.
Please respond to this post if you'd be interesting in joining so I can make sure there would be a good amount of people and if so, vote in the polls and feel free to suggest a template. I'll make a final poll for templates in about a week, and then tally all polls about a week after that. If there are any questions I'll answer them in comments as well.POLL
