Welcome to the Arbitrary League. A league where one must be able to compete in all areas of Warlight.



What Is The Arbitrary League?
The Arbitrary League is a Warlight first. It is a league which is open to all types of games, maps and edits available on Warlight. It requires players to be all rounded, not necessarily the best players on Warlight but those who can play many types of game.

What All The Rules Of Play?
Standard league rules, round robin for you section, winners go up to the next section, losers go down.

All Types Of Edits?
Yes, the Arbitrary League's 'edits' or properties are decided randomly for each section at each running. See below for a full list of the 'edits'

'Edits'
Fog - No Fog, Light Fog, Normal Fog
Map - Decided by order of Average Rating (Number decided)
Territory Distribution - 1,2,3,4,5 per player or all? (Manual for numbers, random for all)
Number Of Wastelands - 0,5 or 10
Size Of Wastelands - 5, 10 or 20
Luck - 0%, 18% or 75% (standard)
Cards - No Cards, 1 Type, 3 Types or 5 types
Types Of Card - If cards are selected then reinforcement is always selected, others are randomly selected. Other card types stay as standard settings.
Reinforcement Card - Fixed, Progressive (turns) or Progressive (territories)
Players changed - See below.

How Many People Change Sections At Each Running?
That to is also randomly decided|! It is 1 or 2 (3 depending on how many people. It is drawn for each running and effects all sections.

How Do I Know Your Not Fixing The 'Events' Mr Skunk?
The drawing will be recorded and posted on YouTube.

How Many People In A Section?/How Many Sections?
It all depends on how many people want to take part.

What If I Want To Drop Out?
Players can only drop out at the end of a running. They will count as a 'demotion'. So if there is one person to be demoted for section 2, but one person drops out then however was last would not get demoted. Please note that players can not drop out once the settings have been drawn.

Are There Any Joining Prerequisites?
Yes, your boot rate must be 5% or below and you must have competed in at least 100 ranked games. Apart from that it's open to anybody!

Are The Games Ranked?
Due to the nature of the league the games are not ranked. They are all practise games.

Are Vacations Respected?
Yes!

How Many Game Do I Play In At A Time?
We want to keep it open to everyone. So you will play in only 2 games at a time.

Where Do I Sign Up?
Just say in this forum post.

How Are The Starting Sections Decided?
They are decided by the percentage of ranked games you have won.

When Does The First Running Start?
I aim to start in around 2 weeks. But it all depends on how many people are interested in playing.

How Can I Tell What Section I Am In?
Apart from looking at the random robin tournament, a list of all the sections and settings will be posted in the forums.

How Do I Find The Results Of Other Sections?
Results at the end of a running are posted in the forums. Including who get's promoted and demoted.

Can I Get Kicked From The League?
If you are deemed to be purposefully holding up games or using more then 1 account you will be kicked.

How Are Games Set Up?
I set up all the tournaments myself.

How Often Are Runnings?
A new running starts 1 month after a previous running ends. A new running will never start within 3 days both ways of a mainstream public holiday. Eg: Christmas.



So if you have any questions or if you want to sign up then just post below. I hope to see you in the Arbitrary League!

I'll play, hoping 75% luck won't be drawn too much.

So, you are just going to copy andy's and Dom's league. I would be stunned if you got any good players to play in this tournament. For example, whos going to want to play 1v1 European Borders with 75% luck and one territory distrubted, especially if there is no fog?

This is not a copy. There is no league like this on Warlight. It takes a lot of skill to be able to play all times of game including 1 territory distributions. Plus you have to remember that for numbered distribution is manual picking so it is up to the player.

Gnuff I don't know what you on about but it certainly isn't this league.

Play a competitive League with high luck lose interest.
why luck should give an such important role?
1 only territory in distribution became luck, there will not be a spot that is better always then one other. so no skill but only luck. (counterpick)
Card=more luck, less skill factor.
reinf progressice is bad too.

I'd prefer this to Andy's league because it uses 16/0% luck at least some of the time.

As soon as their league starts using these lower luck values, I will sign back up.

Andy's league has much better settings though. This league might have halfway decent settings occasionally and the rest would not be strategic at all.

general our league does use 0%/16% all the time now for D1 and D4. but dom has been too lazy to do it for D2 and D3 as he is still using his alt account but next season he will make the games using his proper account and all games will be either 0% or 16%

I have included the 75% luck option as it is the standard when creating a Warlight game. You have to remember this is open to everyone including new lesser known Warlighters who if they have been playing the standard setting then they are more preferred to higher luck.

no one prefers 75 percent luck, other than bad players who can only beat good players by getting extremely lucky, this is just like andy903's league, except way worse, because his and doms league actually has semistrategic settings on different maps

The 75% luck option has been removed from the settings. Leaving only 0% and 18%.

Skunk I thought 16% was a mistype; sign me out please - I'm not interested. Andy, I asked previously to leave the league after this season but now I know about the luck I'd like to stay. I'll message 'Creator' as well in case you don't read this.

I 'll play :)

You didn't say anything about boot-times, btw, but i 'm assuming they 'll be 3 days ?

And i would make luck 0% straight round, 16% weighted random and 75% weighted random
I don't think the kind of players this would attract would hate 75% luck

It actually bothers me that so many people are ripping into this based on the settings and potential luck factor, since the idea was, in fact, to play games with arbitrary settings.

There are 1001 different ways on this site to measure your strategic brilliance, to play monotonous s1v1 games against players of any level, to be as serious and competitive as you feel compelled to be. This is not one of those ways.

This is the LIFE of WL, where you have too many damn children, the SORRY!, where somebody knocks your ass back to start, the Chutes and Ladders where chutes are your destiny, the Settlers of Catan with no @#$%ing grain, the Monopoly where your brand spanking new hotels are in obvious need of repair, the Oregon trail where it won't matter a bit if you bring home a squirrel or a bison because you're just going to die of dysentery. This is a few rounds of golf any damn where outside of a vacuum.

If you don't want to play, then you are charged with the strenuous task of clicking your mouse to leave the page. Nothing more. If you DO wish to play, or think you might contribute to making it more fun, then type away and bring something constructive to the table. /endrant


Skunk, so long as all the games are practice, consider me in. In fact, I wouldn't mind if you made even more random settings and included more maps. Let's have some fun.

^I can't agree more.
As long as none of the maps are bigger than 400 territories, i'm in.

Thank you people. As it is only a mer 2% I will change the luck setting from 0% and 18% to 0% and 16%. Every map on Warlight is a option. But the chance of getting one bigger then 400 territories is low. But I best ask if you are still interested DrunkenNoobs?
