Hello all.

League activity has hit an all time low and the League Organizers, MasterWalks and PlayerOa wish to explore the possibilities of revamping the League format to attract more participants.

Inspired by Wyand's Blue Ribbon League, we have proposed a new ruleset for the next season(s) of League. Of course, we won't implement such radical changes without first listening to you - the players.



This is a short summary of the new rules we are proposing. I will make a more extensive ruleset if this passes the poll, but this along with the original Blue Ribbon League topic should cover the basics:

 - Each player face each other twice, once in a home match and once in an away match. Matchmaking just like a normal sports league, where you face your opponent twice during a season.

 - Rounds are 7 days long.
       -  Players can ask to move their game to another week if they can't find a time to play. Must be approved by the LO.

 - Each home player needs to pick a rule for both players to follow within the first 48 hours of the round. This choice must be made publicly in the round topic. If no ruleset has been picked, rules will be upped/unrestricted by default. After a ruleset has been posted, or after 48 hours, the match may start. Rules can be picked from a predetermined list of rulesets.

 - Matches will be Best of 4.
       - If a player wins 3 games (3-0 or 3-1), he will receive 3 points from that match. The opponent will receive 0 points.
       - If the match ends 2-2, both players receive 1 point each.
       - The winner is the one who has gathered the most points after all the rounds. If there is a tie, the tiebreaker will be (games won - games lost).
       - I will update standings weekly, just like a sports league table! :)

 - Depending on how many participants we get, you will face either one or two opponents per round. I'm proposing <10 players = 1 game per round, >10 players = 2 games per round. This is up for discussion.

Here is an example of a round:
Spoiler for Hidden:
A - B
C - D
E - F
G - H
I - J
K - L

-

A - C
E - G
I - K
B - D
F - H
J - L

Home matches are played by the player to the left. Player A faces B and C in home matches. Player F faces E in an away match and H in a home match. Eventually everyone will face everyone twice, once home and once away.



Please give your feedback on what you want, and vote in the poll. The results of the poll will make us decide whether we should stick with the original format or try this new format. The goal is to both increase active participants and maintain activity throughout the whole season.

Discuss!

I like this new format proposed. I have not been participating in Leagues in the past, but with this new format I would join.

They are just a simulation, and so are you!

I'll support and participate if there's a punishment for not finishing all your matches. Something like banned from next season of league. Because I guarantee you there WILL be someone who signs up and then gets busy and doesn't play everyone, which will screw some players over from potentially winning the league.

If no punishment is implemented I'm out. But it's a solid idea otherwise.

It's a fair point you're raising, shock, and I agree that there must be some sort of incentive for completing all matches. Whether that will be a ban for next season or something else needs to be discussed. Suggestions are as always highly appreciated!

Thanks for the feedback, guys! With the poll currently showing 8-3 in favor of the new system, it will probably be implemented for the next season. I'll still run the poll for some more time, so nothing is finalized yet.

Current League ends in 11 days, I think it would be great to start fleshing out the New League. :)
