Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League Season 8: 11/20/2016 06:58:51

Hi all, and welcome to Season 8 of the Small Earth P/R League!

Start Cut-Off Date: December 11th, or earlier for those groups that are ready. Players who haven't joined their tournament by this date will be excluded from the league.

This season is made up of seven groups of up to 10 players (A through to G) and 2 expansion groups (H1 & H2), each set at 5 games at once with a 3-day boot time.

Rule changes since last season:
1. Vacations are honoured, however, any player taking more than 3 vacations in a single season will be kicked from the league.

2. Any player booted from a game will receive -0.5 points for that game. At the completion of a season, any player with a negative point score total will be kicked from the league.

A player who has been kicked from the league may only rejoin the league through an expansion group.

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

Group B: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21236
Group C: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21237
Group D: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21238
Group E: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21239
Group F: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21240
Group G: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21241
Group H1: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21255
Group H2: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21256


New players are welcome to sign up on this thread for Season 8 until the expansion groups are full.
0 spaces left. New players will be added to the wait-list. With enough interest, I'll open a 3rd expansion group, otherwise those on the wait-list will be added in season 9.

Small Earth 1v1 League Concept and Rules

Concept

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

The model will typically be to have the top three promote and the bottom three relegate but there are exceptions. Where there is a 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.

Rule Update Alert! Any player booted from a game will receive -0.5 points for that game. At the completion of a season, any player with a negative point score total is deemed to be out of the league and can only return in future seasons as a new player in the bottom group.

Vacations are honoured, however, any player taking more than 3 vacations in a single season will be kicked from the league and can only return in future season as a new player in the 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. 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 versus 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 too long to complete)(where a tie-break tournament has resulted in another tie, average turn speed within the tie-break tournament will be used to split the tie)

Anyone can join the league, members and non-members alike, simply by request in the most recent “Small Earth 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 let the administrator know before the new season begins instead of simply declining to play after the groups have been determined and tournaments begun.

What is that supposed to mean „fell out“?


why does huddyj start in group H?

He decided to make it, I think the reason was he wanted to be like everyone, having to pass all the way from H to A.

So if someone like DerWyyy drops out of the league before it starts... will you look for one more league player? Start the group with one fewer player?

Since both our expansion groups are full this season, all new players wanting to join will be added to a waitlist. If anyone drops out of the expansion groups, the top player in the waitlist will be added to the group. Players in the waitlist will be added to the league next season if no space opens up for this season.

Hi guys, I'm retiring from warlight, and so won't continue participating in the league. I'm handing over the running of the league to Master Bjarke once this season gets under way. Sorry for the sudden announcement, but warlight is starting to get in the way of more important things, and needs to go. I don't plan on coming back in the future, so once the tournaments I'm currently involved in wrap up its goodbye from me.

It's been fun,
