Small Earth Promotion/Relegation League Season 11: 5/21/2017 14:33:50

Hi all, and welcome to Season 11 of the Small Earth P/R League!

This season will begin on the 3rd of June and there are currently open spots for anyone who wants to join.

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.

This season is made up of seven groups of up to 10 players (A through to G). Each is set at 5 games at once with a 3-day boot time.

No rules are changed from last season.

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 and less relegations 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 means fewer relegations and more super-promotions to keep the groups filled.

Payers are kicked from the league if they have 3 or more boots in a season, or 2 boots in two consecutive seasons, unless there is a really good reason for the boots. Kicked players can only return 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: No. of Boots. Boots is penalized in resolving ties not solved by the head to head rule. Booted players are moved to the buttom of the tie, and head-to-head is applied again between players with the same amount of boots.
2: Overall win/loss ratio. (The total wins of each player you defeated versus the total wins of each player you lost against). It comes down to the number of wins by the players that a player have won against. Note Head-to-Head reapplied after, if this solves the tier for some but not all.
3: Tie-break tournament. (Unless such a tournament would cause lengthy delays for the league)
4: Average turn-speed (Last resort. 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.

Looking on F and G groups, I recommend that you make 2 F groups (F1 and F2) so each of groups will be equall toward promotion to higher group. If, by the chance there will be more players added, let 3rd group be there.

If at the end of the season there are enough existing players to create unique F group, best positioned players should end there, and the rest, with new players will go to G group.

Regarding current proposal, some of new players will go to group F and the rest to group G, what I consider unfair.

bigbear and Kearox have been added to the league in group G.

/Hasdrubal: I think two groups would be a fine way of doing it next season. This season will be done with qualifier, as I created those before you wrote this. I dont see why you consider it unfair though, when it is actually decided by a game rather than pure ramdomness?


Tournaments for this season are now live! Please join as soon as possible everybody. I was thinking about starting it next friday, but that may be a bit short time to join. Maybe start full groups at that time and give a bit more time for people who are yet to join? What do you guys think?

p.s. there are still open spots in group G for new players, just let me know as soon as possible if you want to join the league :)

Sad to hear Hades :(. Hope to see you back in the future.



I am starting full groups now. Any players who are still to join their group have gotten a message about it, but I will wait a bit with starting those (luckily we got A going straight away - we are slow in that group). I will wait untill some time next week before starting a group without someone, as it have not been that long since people got invited for groups.


p.s. Last call for new players who want to join this season. Please write me very soon if you want to join.

My last game lasted 40 turns against FC Bayern (new record for this setting?). I slipped the victory twice and deserved to lose - kudos to FC Bayern.

All results are now updated and group standigs are finished. Results can be seen on the result post in the top of this thread.

If you think someone booted a lot in you group (and I havnt got it in the results allready), please message me :) I only check when I had to for tiebreakers or if anyone lost all their games.

I will post a PR-sheet shortly based.

Right now we have 5 new players joining and 9 being removed for not joining, declining or getting booted too much. I am thinking that I will follow Hasdrubals suggestion from earlier and make 2 F groups (assuming there are several more than 10 players in F, otherwise 1 group will do).

I expect next season to start in the first weekend of September, with me hopefully creating groups sometime this week. Any new players that want to join, please let me know either by posting here or messaging me directly :)
