Promotion Relegation League Season 32: 4/17/2021 17:34:58

Welcome to Promotion/Relegation League 33. Congrats to Master of Desaster for winning P/R league 31! After many appearances in group A, he finally grabbed a title! Other contenders in group A include:

Timinator - 1 time league champion, lots of experience in A

GuestNWHSzY - 2nd runner up in Group B (Doron Hoh inactive), newcomer to A

almosttricky - 1 time league champion

Edge - 2nd season in A, no titles so far

Min34 - Newcomer to group A!

Hergul - Another newcomer to group A!

We have 3 newcomers to A!!! That's got to be a record! The player with the most wins, Deadman, also retired from the league this season. It will be a long time before anyone can beat his record of 5 wins! Nobody in group A has more than 1 win as of now!

Concept

The Promotion/Relegation League is a seasonal group of round-robin Warzone tournaments, always on the classic “strategic medium earth” map and settings with 0% weighted random luck. (This is not the same as the template currently used for the 1v1 ladder). Players are grouped into 7 player groups, each group sorted into a tier. At the end of each season, the top players of each tier are promoted to the next tier above. Bottom players are relegated to the next tier below. Middle players remain in the same tier.

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.

For season 32, the following model is employed:

A (1 group): 2 demote, 1 wins the league!
B (1 group): 2 promote, 3 demote
C (2 groups): 3 promote (1 each group plus 2nd place playoff between C1 and C2), 4 demote (2 each group)
D (2 groups): 4 promote (2 each group), 6 demote (3 each group)
E (3 groups): 6 promote (2 each group), 9 demote (3 each group)
F (5 groups): about 10 promote (2 each group)

Links to Tournaments

There are exceptions to this model. Where there is default – a player becoming inactive or asking to bow out of the league – there can be more promotions or fewer relegations to fill in the vacancy. The principle, though, is to usually have at least one player from each group relegated. There are usually a lot of dropouts every season, especially in the lower tiered groups. This means that players should always try to do the best that they can because 3rd place can sometimes mean a promotion and 2nd to last isn't always a relegation!

Any player inactive for more than 10 days at the beginning of a new season will be removed from the league (unless they are on vacation). This rule is intended to move the league along more quickly. Players must also join any tournament related to the league within 2 weeks or face removal (again players on vacation are excluded). The league administrator reserves the right to speed up the league by deciding games by turn speed to prevent players from stalling the league. Players intentionally stalling their games will forfeit their remaining games and be removed from the league.

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 tied players. Occasionally, there are loops of ties that cannot be resolved by the head-to-head rule. A tie-breaking tournament then takes place unless all the players involved agree to otherwise settle the tie.

If players are still tied after the tiebreaker tournament, tiebreaker tournaments will continue to be created until the end of the season (minimum of 1 tiebreaker tournament) or until any player forfeits. If the end of the season is near, tiebreaker tournament boot times can be adjusted to 1 day 10 hours.

Anyone can join the league, members and non-members alike, simply by request in the most recent “Promotion/Relegation League” forum thread. If you ask to join on a past P/R league thread, I will not see it and likely won't add you. New players begin in the bottom group or in an expansion group. Promotions from expansion groups depend on numbers within the new groups.

For players with multiple accounts, transferring your spot in the league to another account is allowed. You must send me the request from both the accounts involved in the transfer and both accounts must have the same flag (and state if applicable). This is an effort to prevent players from transferring their spot in the league with someone who hasn't earned that spot.

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 of it let the administrator know before the new season begins instead of simply declining to play after the groups have been determined and tournaments begun.

NOTE: The F groups will all have 8 players this season to accommodate lots of new players.

Okay, the league has started.

I'm not sure why it did 4 games at a time instead of 2. Sorry about that. The good news is that there are only 5-7 total games to play depending on which division you're in.

All people asking to join will now need to wait until the next season.
