Season 12 ReStart

 

 

 

So Season 12 IS STARTED NOW please schedule all your Matches.

 

 

There have been some problems regarding Season 12:

 

a) vague explanations of match scheduling.

Not giving clear “default dates/times” on all matches was clearly a mistake that will be fixed.

Please try to get 5 Matches played in 6 Weeks.

Thanks to Absurdon we now have a new scheduling system in place, fully explained here.

You can still use the comment section under your match to schedule games but give the scheduling system a try so we can improve it based on your feedback.

 

b) numerous bugs with the new NS2 build, etc

We would like to have a stable balance in Comp mod in Season 12 with as less balance variety as possible throughout all Matches.
Also the Comp Mod Council is sometimes strongly opinionated towards “Can we just revert”

So the Comp Mod Modders came to the Conclusion that it's easier to use a Freeze mod of build 317 on top of Comp Mod so if a new NS2 Patch gets released all balance changes don’t apply automatically.

 

c) team disbanded in Division 1 (this means the division had 3 teams in it)

Since we had another Team disbanding but this time in Div1 with only 4 Teams,

we took the chance to reconsider the Seeding with your help and based on the Comments and to not repeat another 4 Team Division we are going for Seeding Possibility 11: http://www.ensl.org/articles/1047

 

We will reward the first 3 Places in each Division ofc with a Great HOF Spot

Where you will be listed with the Best/Winners of previous seasons and maybe with Badges with a similar look/concept like these.

 

Div1:    

Div2:    

Div3:

"Please try to get 5 Matches played in 6 Weeks."

9 weeks on, only 2 teams out of 17 have actually done what was asked.

Div 1 has had a total of 2 matches played, 8 matches remain un-played.
Div 2 a total of 6 matches played. 9 matches remain un-played.
Div 3 a total of 13 matches played. 2 matches remain un-played.

Is anything being done about this admins?

You're right, for the good of the league I must use everyone's IP address to dox them and hunt them down and force them to play ns2.

This indicates a few trends
1) The lowest divs played most Matches
2) The higher the div the less teams play.
3) The lower the div the more PCWs/they come to together to play. (from my experience true)

Now how can this be changed to get them to a equal level of games played ?
discuss.

Im talking to Team leaders sometimes i try to get them playing but as star said if they don't want im asking other active people of the team and if they don't want what can i do as star said i cant force them to play ns2.

A season format does not allow to replace teams or change divisions up in the middle of a Season easy right ?
Is there a more flexible format that somebody can see working for us ?



Anyway Star is not wrong till the end of February there is time.
But that the intention was to have the Playoffs played till the end of February.


I was initially planing to have 2 playoffs Games per division 1 around Place 3 from rank 3 and 4 and a Game around Place 1 and 2 from rank 1 and 2.
(to get place 1 to 3 for the hof.)
----------------------------------------------------- OR -----------------------------------------------------------
A small single elimination bracket of 3 Games where rank 3 and 4 have 1 game the winner of that plays rank 2 and the winner of that plays rank 1.
(to get place 1 to 3 for the hof.)
----------------------------------------------------- OR -----------------------------------------------------------
A Round robin format of these 4 Teams in case of draws whoever played higher in the group phase wins
(but since its possible to place even in the group phase too) this should only be done if the Group phase was not even what i mean is whos leading in the group phase gets determined by:
* the overall collection of points during regular season
* if tied: the collection of points against the other team during the regular season
* if tied: the number of won matches during the regular season
* if tied: by coin flip.
(and if all these factors are true a team would still win by a coin flip and that's not the intention of playoffs in that case you don't need playoffs.)
So in short if they are not even in group phase its a option otherwise rather no.
----------------------------------------------------- OR -----------------------------------------------------------
maybe you have a better idea of a playoffs format let me know.




So depending on the playoffs that need to end on 28 Februrary, the group phase can last till

28 January for the single elimination bracket, takes 3-4 weeks.
(a lot of scheduling necessary and a lot waiting for teams to finish games)

4 February for the Round Robin Format, takes 2-3 weeks.
(but its a round robin right after a round robin rly? )

11 February for the 2 Games around place 1 and Place 3, takes 1-2 weeks
(So theres always 1 more week to schedule then games)
