Auction Stream: https://www.twitch.tv/tackyticall
SIGN UP DEADLINE: Sunday 23rd of June
Estimate for creation of the first round of games: Late July
Discord: https://discord.com/invite/NNCqEzQu

tl;dr - Sign up on this thread as a player. You will play either 5 or 10 games over the course of a season.

If you're signing up as a manager, read everything below so you understand how this works. If anyone has played Football Manager or fantasy football, this concept should be familiar.

Concept

  • 6 managers will form their clubs from a pool of players that will sign up here.
  • By signing up, you agree to play for any team that drafts you. All you need to do is state in this thread that you are interested in joining. Entry is based on how reliable we think you will be.
  • There will be a transfer window at the start of each season where a manager can sign free agents or trade with other managers(includes start of season 2). Once the transfer window closes, every club will have one week to submit a roster for the different game formats.
  • Indicate your strengths and anything else that you think will make you get picked. A player will not play more than 10 games in this league(over the course of a season).

Rules

  • No alts.
  • All games will be 3 day boot time with 2 days banked. 2 Vacations permitted(max of 20 days).
  • No re-creation of games due to boots. Reliability is something managers should consider when bidding for players.
  • Two substitutions allowed for each team during a season.
  • If a player cheats/stalls, they might be banned for the next season. All of the player's points in the current season are halved as well.
  • Managers must play for their teams as well(1 or 2 tournaments). Their price will be determined by the league(see Auction section for more details).

Roster

  • Every club must have a minimum of 10 players(9 players + 1 manager).
  • There are a total of (1x7 + 3x2) = 13 slots per club.
  • Every club can field only 3 players in 2 slots (10 games each).
  • If a club runs out of money, it cannot sign any new players to its roster.

FAQs

  • What is the league format?
    The league will comprise of seven 1v1s and three 2v2 Round Robin tournaments set up with scheduled game creation in a CLOT.
    Each 1v1 will be worth 3 points and each 2v2 4 points. The club with the maximum total points at the end of the season wins the championship!!
  • Which templates will be played?
    Being primarily focused on the Manager aspect, templates will change every season, making it harder for the manager to pick players, or forcing them to look for good overall players instead of template specialists. See the template list a few posts below for the templates used in Season 3.
  • How will managers be chosen?
    We are primarily looking for very active players who are on Warlight at least once a day. You don't necessarily need to be the best player. If there are more than 6 people interested, we'll see what to do. If you are interested, please post on this thread stating why you would make a good manager.

Currency

  • The currency used in this league shall be Nohhams!
  • Every club will be given a fixed amount(400 Nohhams, this subject to change in the future).
  • Every player has a starting worth(between 0-100 Nohhams). Once all the sign-ups occur, we will work with a few folks to estimate base price of all the players. If you think you are a good judge of players, send us a PM.
  • There will be an auction where all clubs can bid for the players starting from the min price. For more details see the section "Auction"

Salary

  • Salary wont be implemented for this season. If there is enough interest for a follow-up season with roughly the same players and managers shortly after this finishes, we will balance out the economics to adjust for this.

Trade

  • Trading will be added if there is enough interest for a follow-up season with enough of the same player base

Auction

  • Every player will have a base price. They will also have a minimum price. No player can be bought for a value below this min amount.
  • All players will be divided into about 7 tiers (this depends on the amount of signups).
    Tier 1 will have the best players
  • Groups will be created by randomly drawing a player out of each tier. Thus, each group will have a player from tier 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.
    For ex - If we have a total of 70 players (hypothetically), There will be 7 tiers, with roughly 10 players each. There will be 10 groups, each containing 7 players(one from each tier).
  • If a player is signed for less than the base price, but ends up playing 2 slots then the club needs to pay the full base price for said player.
  • The auction will have as many rounds as (number of groups + 1). After the first three rounds, we will have a special round. In this 4th round, we will reveal the price of every manager and they will have to buy them self. They will pay half their price if they plan to play only one tourney. This gives them ample time to plan their budget in the subsequent rounds as they form their perfect team.
  • Every round will be held over chat/mail(not RT)
  • In every round, we cover one group. All managers have to submit the following:
  • The max number of players they want to sign from this group.
  • Their priority in which they want to sign players in that group. One may want to sign a tier 2 player ahead of a tier 1 player!
    For ex- Say a group has 8 players. A manager only wants at max 3 players. If they win the bid for their highest priority player, they get them. This continues until the manager wins bids for the max number of players specified. Any further winning bids of that manager are not considered.
    A bid for each player in the group.
    Say if X and Y are managers who bid for player P.
    If X bids 60
    If Y bids 65
    Y will win this bid and the price for the player P will be 65 Nohhams.
  • The manager with the highest bid for a player wins that player as long as they have not exceeded their max player count in that group or alternatively if the player is of a high enough priority to be within the max player count.
  • A manager can avoid bidding for a player altogether if they are not interested in the player.
  • After every round, the results are declared to every manager and the winning transactions(and club) are made public for all the players in that round. This way, after a round, every manager knows what their finances are, and if they should be more aggressive or passive in the next round(based on what they got in the previous round).
    For ex- after round 5, you have missed out on all the Tier 1 players so far, it is probably time for you to be super aggressive about pursuing the tier 1 player in the next round.
  • New players in the next season are distributed via a draft. Last team in the league gets 1st pick and has to pay market value for the player (This might be subject to change in the future)

Income

  • Income will be figured out if there is significant enough interest for a follow-up season after season 3.

Player Value

  • Players' value will fluctuate at the end of every season based on their performances!
  • The algorithm used to determine player prices at the end of each season is non-existent at present, it will most likely be determined by the panel that also decides the player tiers.

Interested in playing

Edit:
I can play any template in the selection.
For the managers not knowing me, my strength ranking is probably:
any of the above template > EA > French Brawl

2nd edit for those last second managers:
  • I have a really good gif game.
  • My favourite song is Sorry by Madonna.
  • I lied above, ik how to play ea and fb, i just don't want to play brawls and find inss boring.
  • My favourite ice cream flavour is vanilla.
  • I've played 1 game of ursa lunacy in my life but wouldn't mind playing for you.
  • I hate WR with passion, yet the only 1v1 template i ever played in CL was a WR one.
  • Some have said that I am a really good teamplayer. Some others have said I am an abrasive and toxic teamplayer. Are you willing to take a chance on me?

    I'd like to be considered for the player role.

    Having a discord server for the competition would be cool.

    EDIT: I forgot to write about myself.

    Strenghts: Honesty, hardworking, funny.
    Weaknesses: Warzone skills.

    I'm John, I'm a really nice guy, I'm honest and hardworking.
    Because I'm honest I need to disclaim that the lower your expectations for me are, the more accurate your predictions will be.
    I prefer vanilla template with low income. You'd be crazy to field me in EA.
    If I'm cheap you should bid on me, at least I'll tell jokes to cheer the team.


    PS for Stefano: You know I won't <3

    Hello, I'm Stefano 36000 and I would like to play, I'm ok on inss templates, not the worst on brawls and weird templates, pretty terrible at vanilla ones. I'll engage in team games if my partners do so as well and say nothing if they don't.
    Best quality: pretty sure I'll be the cheapest
    Worst quality: personality

    PS: John! If you play this you're getting subbed in in nation cup for sure!

    I want to sign up as a player.

    My skill estimate by template, from high to low, in case managers will be looking to field someone for a specific template and I am drafted at a late auction round:

    1) French Brawl
    2) ME
    3) EA
    4) Biomes 2v2
    [4.1) Battle Islands V]
    5) Strategic Greece
    6) Strat MME 2v2
    7) Timid Land
    8) Ursa Lunacy
    9) Landria Earth 2v2

    Fielding me on Landria Earth would be a mistake, all other templates I should be able to handle.
