Concept

The Promotion/Relegation League is a seasonal group of round-robin Warlight tournaments, always on the classic “strategic middle earth” map and settings. Players are grouped into small groups (7 on average). 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.

Currently, the model is to typically have the top two promote and the bottom two relegate but there are exceptions. Where there is default – a player becoming inactive or asking to bow out of the league – there can be more promotions to fill in 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 mean fewer relegations and more super-promotions to keep the groups filled.

Any player inactive in the last three games of any tournament is deemed to be out of the league and can only return as a new player in an expansion or bottom group.

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. A tie-breaking tournament then takes place unless all the players involved agree to otherwise settle the tie. Where a tie-breaking tournament would delay the league too much, average turn-speed is rewarded to resolve such ties.

Anyone can join the league, members and non-members alike, simply by request in the most recent “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 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.

The history of the last season can be reviewed from links in the season 13 thread:

It's worth noting that anyone wishing to join season 15 at the last second could probably reply here, then Frank can add you to one of the H groups.

Excited for the next season!

Why is this %16 WR? Shouldn't it match the 1v1 ladder which is %0 WR? Why are we allowing the 1v1 and 2v2 attacks to work?

You are correct. I should have just said "obscure attacks". There are some in %16 WR that can occur when they have a less than %5 chance of happening.

My point remains. Promo league has always been 1v1 ladder template, why not now?

Wow. I am not trying to throw anyone under the bus. I just think for next season it should match the ladder. I'd love to see the current ones fixed, but I doubt frank/push want to remake the tournaments.

I didn't realize the ladder template was changed, so I thought I still used the "standard" 1v1 template.

I think the tournament is still 16% luck whereas the ladder is 0%.

It almost killed me one game, where I attacked with what I thought was minimum necessary and failed with like -1.83 luck or something.

I think an update is in order...

GROUP A
Krzychu (3-1)
Master Miyagi (2-1)
Tenshi (2-1)
Frankdeslimste (1-1)
timon92 (1-2)
Ineffable (1-2)
grona (1-3)

Krzychu is in the lead! This guy has been a beast the last few seasons.

GROUP B
Old Surehand (1-0)
FlyingBender (1-0)
Mirror (0-0)
Heyheuhei (0-0)
Orange (0-0)
Pushover (0-2)

Tartan failed to join, unfortunately. I suck and will struggle to avoid relegation. Otherwise, this is the slowwwwwest group of the season.

GROUP C
Niko (3-0)
Falker (2-1)
Jefferspin (1-0)
Metatron (0-0)
JV (0-1)
Timinator (1-2)
Marechal Lannes (0-3)

Oh Niko the yo-yo... 2 seasons ago finishes top of group C, last season finishes at the bottom of group B, now leading group C again! Metatron playing like he belongs in group B (slowwwwww). :P There's a lot of talent in this group, so I feel like a lot of shuffling could happen over the course of this season.

GROUP D
his balls (4-0)
Master Bjarke (1-1)
Andersault (1-1)
ferede (0-0)
Beren Erchamion (0-2)
Kevin#1 (0-2)

his balls makes up for a disastrous season 14 to guarantee himself a promotion spot.

GROUP E
GeneralGror (2-1)
Bigchps147 (2-1)
rocky1 (2-1)
Riyamitie (1-0)
Darkpie (1-2)
bobbob000 (0-3)

Aside from poor bob, this group seems wide open to me. Lots of good talent here.

GROUP F - FINISHED
The Turtle (4-0)
Kasparov (3-1)
Master ARC (1-3, 1-0)
ARand0mPlayer(1-3, 0-1)
Jackie Treehorn (1-3) - inactive, will be removed from league

We already have a completed group, and congrats to The Turtle for winning it! Jackie Treehorn would have been the obvious favorite to win, but he went inactive, getting three consecutive boot losses.

GROUP G
Master Atom (5-1, 1-0)
smileyleg (5-1, 0-1)
Polakillo (4-2)
ChrisCMU (3-2)
Vortex (2-4)
BlacKnight (1-4)
aper (0-6) - inactive, will be removed from league

Another quick group. Congrats to Master Atom for winning the head-to-head tiebreaker over smileyleg! The final game between ChrisCMU and BlacKnight is outstanding; if Chris can win, he can take 3rd place from Polakillo (Chris previously beat Polakillo).

GROUP H1
Verzehrer (2-0)
Noobschool (1-0)
Master of the Dead (1-0)
Dr. Walter Ego (0-0)
ALE (1-3)
sobedai (0-2)

Verzehrer takes an early lead, but most games haven't been played yet.

GROUP H2
ps (2-0)
Don (2-1)
Ollie (1-1)
ChristophU (1-1)
Pablo Garcia (0-1)
Roooob (0-2)

ps arguably played his two most difficult opponents first, and beat them both! If he doesn't win this group I'd be shocked.

It's unfortunate that forum bullshit is hiding this thread :(

Here's another update.

GROUP A
Master Miyagi (3-1)
timon92 (3-2)
Krzychu (3-2)
Tenshi (2-1)
Frankdeslimste (1-2)
Ineffable (1-3)
grona (1-3)

Just like last season, this season's group A is really close!

GROUP B
FlyingBender (4-1) - WINNER
Orange (3-1)
Old Surehand (2-2)
Mirror (2-2)
Heyheuhei (1-3)
Pushover (0-3)

Unfortunately boots are deciding a lot of games in this group. Congrats to FlyingBender for winning the group (by virtue of beating Orange) and making it to group A, though a shame that the competition wasn't better. If Orange beats me, he clinches the second promotion spot. If I can manage a win against HHH maaayyyybe I avoid relegation? Either way I didn't play well this season, and even have a boot loss -_-

GROUP C
Niko (3-0)
Falker (3-1)
Metatron (1-0)
Jefferspin (1-1)
Timinator (1-2)
JV (0-2)
Marechal Lannes (0-3)

Very little to update from last time. Several players are in the running to win the group.

GROUP D
his balls (4-0)
Andersault (3-1)
Beren Erchamion (2-2)
Master Bjarke (1-2)
ferede (0-1)
Kevin#1 (0-4)

ferede is the only player who has a chance to knock his balls or Andersault from their 1-2 positions.

GROUP E
Bigchps147 (4-1) - WINNER
rocky1 (3-1)
Darkpie (3-2)
GeneralGror (2-3)
Riyamitie (1-3)
bobbob000 (1-4)

The only game left is between Riyamitie and rocky1. Congrats to Bigchps147 for winning the group by beating rocky1! Meanwhile rocky1 clinches second. Riyamitie needs to win his final game to avoid last place.

GROUP F - FINISHED
The Turtle (4-0)
Kasparov (3-1)
Master ARC (1-3, 1-0)
ARand0mPlayer(1-3, 0-1)
Jackie Treehorn (1-3) - inactive, will be removed from league

GROUP G - FINISHED
Master Atom (5-1, 1-0)
smileyleg (5-1, 0-1)
Polakillo (4-2)
ChrisCMU (3-3)
Vortex (2-4, 1-0)
BlacKnight (2-4, 0-1)
aper (0-6) - inactive, will be removed from league

The group finishes with Chris losing to BlacKnight.

GROUP H1
Master of the Dead (4-0)
Verzehrer (3-2)
Noobschool (2-1)
Dr. Walter Ego (1-1)
ALE (1-3)
sobedai (0-4)

Master of the Dead needs only win his final game to clinch first place; he can only lose out on first place to Dr. Walter Ego, who needs to win all his remaining games to take first. Meanwhile, Noobschool is set to take second given his win over Verzehrer.

GROUP H2
ps (5-0) - WINNER
Don (2-2)
Ollie (2-2)
ChristophU (2-2)
Roooob (1-3)
Pablo Garcia (0-3) - Inactive, will be removed from league

ps goes undefeated to win group H2! Second place could either go to Ollie if he beats ChristophU, or Don otherwise.
