Welcome all to season 18 of the Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League!

Thank you to all our participants in season 17! This league is fun because it is competitive, and every player involved contributes to that competitiveness.
It's always great to see new players joining, so welcome to you and good luck! Thank you for getting involved!
The Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League is a seasonal group of round-robin tournaments, always on the “Small Earth” map, with standard settings. Game template: https://www.WarLight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=721086

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.

If you would like to join the league, simply ask on this thread. New players will be added to the wait-list, and will begin in an expansion group next season (season 18).
The format for this season has changed, with a premier A group, 2 parallel B groups, 3 parallel C groups, and 4 parallel D groups. There will no longer be any double promotions, however with more players able to play in higher divisions, I am hopeful it will give an opportunity for new players to climb the ranks quickly. Each round-robin tournament is set at 5 games at once with a 3-day boot time, and limited to a maximum of 10 players.

No rule changes.
Tournament links for each group are listed below:
Group A: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=32818
Group B1: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=32819

Group D3: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=32826
Group D4: https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=32827
The start date for season 18 will be Sunday, March 8, however players will be allowed an extra week if needed to join their group.
Groups will be created and invitations sent no later than Sunday, March 1. This will give everyone two weeks to join their group tournament.
You can get all the tournament links and league history for last season by checking out the thread from Season 17: https://www.WarLight.net/Forum/389644-small-earth-promotionrelegation-league-season-17

Small Earth P/R 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 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 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 promotions to keep the groups filled.

Payers are kicked from the league if they have 3 or more boots in a season. Kicked players are allowed to return, but only as a new player in the bottom group.
Vacations are honoured, however, any player taking more than 3 vacations in a single season will receive an automatic relegation.

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 tie 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.

Season 18: The Ranking System

Ranking points will be earned each time you win a game in Group A, B, C, D and E. The higher the group you are in, the more ranking points you receive each time you win, as listed below:
Group A will give 8 ranking points per win.
Group B will give 4 ranking points per win.
Group C will give 2 ranking points per win.
Group D will give 1 ranking point per win.
Group E will give 0.5 ranking points per win.

All players participating in the league will begin season 16 on with zero ranking points. This allows the League Champion of Season 16 to become our first #1 ranked player.

Points will be accumulated over the 3 most recent seasons of the Small Earth P/R League (from Season 16 onward), with 100% points awarded for the most recent 2 seasons, and 50% points awarded for the season before that. Maximum points would be 9 wins in Group A, giving 72 points for two seasons, and 36 points for the 3rd season, for a maximum possible score of (72+72+36) 180 points.

Please Note: This ranking system is just for a bit of fun, and designed for league bragging rights only. It has nothing to do with normal promotions/relegations.

Tournament invitations have been sent to all players from last season. New players will receive their invitations soon.

I used a randomizer to distribute players across the parallel groups in each tier, so I apologize if it turns out some groups are tougher than others.

All tournament invitations have now been sent! Players have two weeks to accept their tournament invitation, and I will be following up after one week for anyone who has not yet joined.

New players are still welcome to sign up! There are currently around 12 places available in Tier D.
