Hi everyone, this is the official thread for Season 3 of the Small Earth 1v1 Promotion/Relegation League.

This season is made up of 7 groups, with a maximum of 10 players in each group.

Here are the tournament links so you can follow the league's progress:

Group A: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16316
Group B: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16317
Group C: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16318
Group D: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16319
Group E: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16308
Group F1: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16309
Group F2: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=16310

New players can continue to sign up for a spot in either Group F1 or Group F2 until the season starts as space allows.

You can get all the tournament links and league history for last season by checking out the thread from Season 2:

Small Earth 1v1 League Concept and Rules

Please note that these rules and the league concept have been taken with only minor adaptations from the ME promotion/relegation league, and I wish to give credit to those who are running that league for putting them together originally. For those wishing to find out more about that league, here is a link to their latest thread: https://www.warlight.net/Forum/106960-promotionrelegation-league-season-17

Concept

The Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League is a seasonal group of round-robin Warlight tournaments, always on the “small earth” map with coin settings. 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.

From season 2, the model will typically be to have the top three promote and the bottom three 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 50% or more of their games during any tournament is deemed to be out of the league and can only return as a new player in the bottom group, unless they can give a valid reason for their inactivity.

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. If this is the case, ties will be broken by the following (in order of preference):

1: Overall win/loss ratio. (The total wins of each player you defeated minus the total wins of each player you lost against)
2: Tie-break tournament. (Unless such a tournament would cause lengthy delays for the league)
3: Average turn-speed (only if a tie-break tournament fails to resolve the tie, or would take to long to complete)

Anyone can join the league, members and non-members alike, simply by request in the most recent “Small Earth 1v1 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.

japan77, I normally give it a week or two from when I make the groups to when the season starts to allow everyone to accept tournament invitations, etc. Also, season 2 is not quite finished, meaning not all the promotions are decided yet for a couple of groups, so I'd like to get those sorted out before we kick of for season 3.

Алексей, sorry for the oversight. I've invited you to Group C. This is another reason why I give it a couple of weeks between creating the league tournaments and starting the season, as there is always likely to be errors like this that will occur and need correcting.

zanbato, it's not too late to join, I'll ask Master Bjarke to invite you to one of the expansion groups.

Hmmm as a player in the promotion / relegation league, plus the current P.O.O.N , i guess i'm a nobody since i care about both?
I also would be happy to hear of anyones wedding and don't see why others could possibly find it offending that any of these things appear on the forums.
Skipping through the forums, almost every post is about things that some people would find interesting whereas most wouldn't. If there was a litmus test as to if 50% of people would be interested in reading a particular thread before it was posted, the forums would be very empty indeed.

Very much looking forward to season 3 and please keep posting keeping us up to date on it!
thanks

REMINDER!

Season 3 starts this Sunday November 22nd. Any player who has not accepted their tournament invitation by then will be removed from the league and will have to start next season as a new player in the bottom group if they still wish to participate.

Good luck to all players, and please note that new players can still join up until the season starts on Sunday.

I did PM everyone individually several days ago at the same time as I wrote the above, Fleecemaster, so they've had plenty of time to join. Only a couple of players didn't join, thankfully.

Groups A, B, C, and D are now running, and I expect Groups E, F1, and F2 will start pretty soon. Good luck to all players for season 3.

For the players who didn't join their tournaments, we'd still like you to participate in future seasons, so feel free to rejoin the league next season.

Assuming no mid-season drop-outs, here is the P/R for season 3. Please be aware that at this stage this is only a guide, and if players leave the league or become inactive, this may change.

As a couple of the higher groups have less players, there will once again be super-promotions this season to fill those spaces. Also, there will be less relegations in most groups.

Group A:
10 players. 1st-6th remain in Group A. 7th-10th relegate to Group B.

Group B:
8 players. 1st-3rd promote to Group A. 4th-6th remain in Group B. 7th-8th relegate to Group C.

Group C:
10 players. 1st super-promotes to Group A. 2nd-3rd promote to Group B. 4th-8th remain in Group C. 9th-10th relegate to Group D.

Group D:
8 players. 1st super-promotes to Group B. 2nd-3rd promote to Group C. 4th-7th remain in Group D. 8th relegates to Group E.

Group E:
10 players. 1st super-promotes to Group C. 2nd-3rd promote to Group D. 4th-8th remain in Group E. 9th-10th relegate to Group F.

Group F1:
9 players. 1st super-promotes to Group D. 2nd-3rd promote to Group E. 4th-7th remain in Group F. 8th-9th relegate to Group G. (next season's expansion group)

Group F2:
10 players. 1st super-promotes to Group D. 2nd-3rd promote to Group E. 4th-7th remain in Group F. 8th-10th relegate to Group G. (next season's expansion group)

Group A update:

Master Bjarke         (6-0)
huddyj                (5-1)
rocky1                (4-4)
mslasm                (3-2)
Pantelas              (3-5)
Sułtan Kosmitów       (2-1)
Lampião               (2-5)
Gibs                  (2-5)
TWOLKER               (1-5)
USA Biches            (0-0)


Things are close in the race for League Champion in season 3. Master Bjarke leads so far, while after dropping an early game to rocky1, I've fought my way to 5-1. Our match is in progress, and looks likely to decide top spot in the group. It's a tense, even affair, with neither of us controlling any bonuses at any point in the game to date. Could be a very long and drawn out game...

Meanwhile, USA Biches is continuing the reputation of playing slowly, and is yet to finish a game. Sułtan Kosmitów is probably the only other player with a genuine chance of winning the group, but once again has played too few matches to really get a good reading on.

Pantelas, Lampião, Gibs, and TWOLKER seem likely to fill the 4 relegation slots, each with 5 losses so far.
