Warlight - Conferences (Like NCAA Basketball) Read the thread for a better description.: 11/28/2012 02:22:36

Most American warlight players probably know what I'm talking about when I say NCAA Basketball and March Madness. Please read the description of how it would work with warlight below whether you know what I am talking about or not:

- Conferences with 8-10 players each including a conference leader who will be responsible for making conference games, as well as some other miscellaneous things that I will explain farther down.

- The players play each person in their conference twice. That will total to 14-18 games against people of your conference depending on how many players are in your conference.

- The players also play games against players from other conferences. Either the conference leader or the player will be in charge of making games and scheduling between 10-15 games against other players. The games must say clearly on the title they are for Warlight's NCAA Basketball or something along those lines as long as it is obvious. The conference leader will relay the results to me via chat game.

- By the end, that totals to 24-33 games, over a period of a couple of months.

- Once all games of the Regular Season (those first 24-33 games) are done, then the Conference championship happens. The conference championship will be a best of 3 series between the two best finishers in the conference.

- Once all the conference championships are over, then the final tournament comes. All Conference champions will receive an automatic bid to the final tournament. There will be 32 or 64 players in the final tournament depending on the amount of interest in this league.

- The rest of the players allowed into the final tournament will be decided on by conference leaders.

- That is why it will pay off to play good teams in non conference games, as well as playing in a tougher conference rather than an easy one. For instance, Heyheuhei and Ryan are fighting for the last spot in the tournament. Heyheuhei is in a conference with Timinator, Dead piggy, dunga, Gui, Sze, Myhand, and Fizzer and finishes 7-7 in conference games. He also plays Luxis, Frankdeslimste, Artham, and 10 other good players out of conference and finishes 7-6 after the out of conference games. Overall his record would be 14-13. Ryan is in a conference with 8 players who are rated 80-100 in the ladder. He finishes 13-3 in the conference but loses the championship games by getting unlucky. Out of conference, he plays all weak players and ends up going 12-2 out of conference. Overall his record is 25-5. But despite his better record, Ryan would not make it in, while Heyheuhei does because of much tougher competition.

- However sometimes the better record will be voted in. Let's use Fizzer from the example above. He ends up going 3-11 in the conference and faces more good opponents out of conference and goes 2-10 out of conference. His overall record is 5-21. Despite his tougher competition, he would not make it over Ryan because he did not do well at all against the tough competition.

- The final tournament will be ranked by seeds. Players that make it will be given a seed between 1 and 16. There will be 4 of each seed. There are kind of 4 different divisions in the final tournament. Each division has one of each seed. The tournament is single elimination and I will make all the games so it is easy to keep track of. Once the final four teams are decided (the top team from each division), then they will continue the single elimination tournament.

- The team that wins all 6 games that they play in the final tournament is the champion. The reason most people in the US love March Madness is because it is so unpredictable and many times a good team (player in this instance) will be upset by a weaker opponent. While a good player will end up winning it, it gives a chance to the guys who might not be able to win consistently but can win a few games and make a run at the championship.

- Please let me know if you are interested. Also, you can go ahead and form a conference, and just have the conference leader post the players for the conference here. I am hoping to have at least 16 conferences.

- Also, If any Americans are better at explaining what March Madness and NCAA Basketball is than I am, feel free. I am not the best at explaining.

Hell bender, thanks for the post :) It helped me remember something else I was going to add. Each conference gets to pick their name rather than being known as Conference 1, Conference 2, etc. Just tell me when you post your conference here. Or, if you express interest here, I will find you a conference and you guys can vote on the name between yourselves.

I'll try to sum it up as best I can:

You sign up as a conference. Each conference will have 8-10 players. Harder competition will be taken into account. You play 2 games against everyone in your conference. You play 10-15 games against people from other conferences. You or your conference leader will be in charge of making these games. There is a conference championship game with the 2 best teams in each conference playing each other in a best of 3 series.

64 player final tournament. Conference champions receive an automatic bid. At-Large bids decided by Conference leaders. Teams are given seeds. Single elimination tournament with each game being made by me. Winner is the winner of all 6 games that he plays in the tournament.

Let me know if you are interested.

Ryan, I don't think you'll end up going 25-5 and not making the finals. I was just using you as an example :p It'd be nice if you could get a conference together though.

Also, I feel some players are getting a bit confused about what this actually is. The focus is not the NCAA Basketball teams. It's just a system that I like and should work well with warlight. You can name the conference after an existing conference in NCAA basketball, but you are not playing as a college basketball team.

I am going to try to get some more conference leaders who can get a conference together.
