Captain's League Idea: 12/24/2021 20:09:34

I know Captain's League happened not too long ago, and I'm not planning to put this into action anytime soon since CL is about to ramp up, but I thought of this idea and thought it would be perfect for Captain's League.

Things that stay the same
The draft, and the team owners. I've always loved the draft in the league and think it would be perfect for this, and of course it would be run by a manager.

Changes
#1 Format of the League - Instead of several round robin tourneys on different templates, it would be a 2 stage format, where a regular season would be played prior to a playoffs. Playoffs would have seeding determined on how the regular season went. The regular season consists of the amount of teams x2 for the game count. All games are created at once, and depending on team sizes and the amount of teams would depend on how many slots an individual player can play. As far as templates, teams would each get to pick their own 2 templates to go into the pool of templates played. (League would be all 1v1s).
The playoffs would be reseeded each round. Each match would consist of a best of 5, with the top seed choosing 3 templates and the bottom seed choosing 2 templates. (Vetos of 1 or 2 maps each clan could also be added beforehand if enough teams signed up) (IE. If 5 teams signed up, that's 10 templates, so there's enough templates to allow for 2/4 vetos and have 8/6 templates still to choose from. )
The Grand Final would be similar, but would be a best of 7.

#2 Currency - I would be down to provide $100 worth of coins to distribute through the winning team. You'd just assign the amount of coins to each individual player after the draft, and the winning team gets it paid off as they assign it. There would be minimum salaries based off of where a player is drafted, but it would not take up the full amount of coins.
This is because I would like to allow trades and free agency to be a thing.
For trades the player would have to keep the same salary between teams, so if someone is worth 1k coins, but you only have 900 available, you must either trade off a player to free space (you cannot drop players) or you can't have the particular player, but if you had 2k space, you could perform this trade easily. Trading can only occur prior to the playoffs.
Free agents would either be undrafted players or players that join the league late. They have the choice to go wherever they want, whether that's the best team or the highest salary, as long as they fit in the cap. Unlike trades, free agents can join at any time.
The winning Team Manager has no ties to the salary and automatically gets 1k coins. They can also play for their team.

#3 Maybe livestream the draft? That'd be cool.




Is there any further thoughts or ideas? I would like to know. This is currently a WIP in my head though.

The problem with coins is, that if you need them, you are not good enough to get a high salary and if you are good enough to get a high salary, 1k coins are nothing for you. Also from my experience, free entry coin games have a higher boot rate than non-coin games. Perhaps keep it as points?

Drafts are already livestreamed.

the actual games would not be coin games, it's just for the payout to the winners

Which could make bootable players join the draft. Also a bit unfair to be MVP, but in a losing team.

Alternatively if you're willing to burn $100 anyway, might as well never convert it to coins. Coins are worthless for any good player since they are easy to earn and can only be spent on this site. $1 is worth a lot more than 100 coins. If you just do points and let them cash out at the end of the season for pennies, that's a lot nicer than coins.

If they want coins they can buy them themselves with their winnings.

not sure how that'd work, or if that's even allowed

I really am not an expert where it comes to the law, but I think that most countries allow "small" transactions without any taxes/penalties. Worst case scenario you can pay in pizzas.

Just use points, with 1 point = 1 cent.
if that's even allowed
It is and either way you can't really be stopped from independently transferring money for winning a WZ competition. You never do a friendly video game tournament with a small cash prize, or play poker with friends?

If you're worried about the law, well, technically they would have to report it as income but that's not your problem.

A lot of people from my team were upset with having 2 players completely dissappear and as a result we were taken completely out of contention for winning anything. Some of my players are hesitant to return to this league.


Stronger organization and being more selective with potential draft stock would be hood improvements.

I am happy to be involved in whatever capacity you need me.
