WSOW 2: 12/9/2014 12:16:14

Level 60
now for the longer version with more details
the WSOW is an idea of making a season of tournaments and eventually have a seasonal rating
The season consists of ten 64 players double elimination tournaments
you can play all but only the best 7 are counted
Each tournament awards points based on your final position the player with the most points at the end wins
because there is no way to seed players tournaments will be double elimination to make it a little more fair
in order to have the best player win and not the most active you need to compete in 7 tournaments out of the 10
you will not get to choose which tournament you will play in
it will be by a system to favor the player with the least tournaments joined
all players will be invited to tournament#1 players that do not join will get a 3 day early invite to tournament #2 after 3 days the rest will be invited
this will continue throughout the whole season the players with the least tournaments gets an early invite

General settings:
3 day auto boot
vacation honored

1. Strategic MME
2. Ancient Greece
3. Turkey
4. Strategic ME
5. Phobia
6. East Asia & Oceania
7. Battle Islands V
8. Europe
9. Guiroma
10. Strategic ME

estimated schedule
on the opening day of the tournament tournament #1 will be created
when tournament #1 starts tournament#2 will be created
when tournament#2 starts tournament#3 will be created
when tournament#3 starts tournament#4 will be created
tournament#4 will be different it will be 2 tournaments:
4A. an elite tournament for the top 32 players of season 1
4B. a tournament for players that want to gain access for tournament 10A
tournament#5 will be created 3 month after tournament#4 starts
when tournament#5 starts tournament#6 will be created
when tournament#6 starts tournament#7 will be created
tournament#8 will be created 3 month after tournament#7 starts
when tournament#8 starts tournament#9 will be created
when tournament#9 starts tournament#10 will be created
tournament#10 will be different it will be 2 tournaments
10A. an elite tournament for the top 16 players of tournament 4A and the top 16 players of tournament 4B
10B. this tournament will have less "big" names so it is a chance for the less skilled players to win
Tournament #11 will be the masters and it will be open only to the top 8 players and will go like so:
2 RR of 4 players template will be decided by players ranked 1 and 2
RR A:players ranked 1 3 6 8
RR B:players ranked 2 4 5 7
from each RR 2 qualify to a small 4 players single elimination Strategic ME tournament

points for tournaments 1,2,3,4A,5,6,7,8,9,10A

points for tournaments 4B,10B

points for tournament 11
200 for every RR win
400 for semi final win
1000 for final win

sign up tournament
I have disabled the forward invite option for this sign up tournament
however it is an open tournament so any player that was not invited may join if he/she meets the prerequisites
the actual tournaments will not be open and only players that join the sign up tournament will be invited

some disadvantages:
1. luck is a big factor as you can get a hard draw and be eliminated early
2. the season will be long
3. one player can stop progress by being slow/taking back to back vacation
4. not every player will get to play in all the tournaments he would like to
5. there will likely to be a big skill difference that could deter top players as this is not an exclusive competition

some advantages:
1. boots and resignations will not be a big factor (unless they are at a very high percentage)
2. each tournament is individual so unlike other great ideas i have seen 1 or 2 early eliminations does not rule you out and you can still win the overall season
3. low number of games at once maximum of 4, probably 2-3 at a time at the start and 0-1 most of the time
4 .you are not obligated to play any game/template you don't know/like and still have a chance to win overall season
5. possibilities of future seasons such as adding 2v2 tournaments, rank based tournaments and to use this rankings as the base for other ideas

questions and feedback are welcome may it be positive or negative
and finally thanks for your patience if you have managed to read all of this

spreadsheet where I will update points of season 2 and final results of season 1

Little update
the response for this so far has been awesome big thanks to all that has joined
88 players so far which is enough to start the season
however I will keep the sign up open to get a buffer incase of boots and resignations
all players that sign up until we hit 100 will be considered official players
players from 100 and up will be considered substitutes

You need to update the summary. I moved up to a 4th place tie (from 8th) by making it to the final game :)

First of all I would like to congratulate all my heart to the winner!
Frank, you are a damned good player!!!!

When I beat Jefferspin and qualified for the finals in the last tourney before the playoffs (WSOW #9 GuiRoma) the situation were the followings:
I had got 3075 points
Arlecchino had got 2375 points
Frank had got 2150 points
Ineffable had got 1925 points
and the rest players had got (much) less.

And all the players (at least with enough high points) didn't have chance to gain additonal points before the playoffs except Frank. He had just played with Krzychu, and he needed win 4 more games before he meet with me in the final of WSOW #9 GuiRoma.

So it seemed olny Frank is who can prevent me to win the whole series, but for this he needed to do actually 100% performance in his remaining matches!

And he did it!

Well, ok, he almost did it :P

Actually, I am the only player who could beat him after this :O
In the final of GuiRoma (btw I won our fight 2-1 in this series (1-1 on Turkey) :P)

But back to Frank, he did an amazing 9-1 series!
Very impressive perforemance!
Especially because he started from a big point disadvantages.
So congrats again! Well done!

Btw funny fact that I did a good enough series too (4-1), I had only 1 lost as well during my remaining games, plus I could win againts Frank, but despites these I was failed for winning the series :O Plus funny fact if I simple surrend my last playoffs game againts Arlechinno, I still win my group but Chris (who was my killer later :D ) didn't promote to the final :O Interesting but meaningless facts :D

So congrats again Frank, and I think you can defend your title!
I am rooting for You! ;-)

Isn't it kind of unfair to make 4A double points?

And thanks for the kind words Ekstone! :)
WSOW 2: 1/16/2015 21:23:12

Level 60
4A should be much harder (I just looked and there are lots of good players in there), thus harder to get points vs general population. But the winner of that will make out nice.
WSOW 2: 1/16/2015 21:35:18

Level 59
Don't bother inviting me to any more tournaments; I don't have time for them. I have to agree with Frankdeslimste about it not really being fair to have 4A double points. Why do we have to group them up to begin with? As in, why do we need a 4A and a 4B? And if it is necessary for the event, why not alphabetize the players and randomly invite them (as in first alphabetically to tourney 1, second to tourney 2, third to tourney 1, etc.).
WSOW 2: 1/18/2015 19:23:57

Level 60
@Frank think of it as 4A normal points 4B half the normal points
@Chris that is exactly right the point is in future seasons to have rank based tournaments
@JSA no problem will not invite you
