No, don't give up yet. This is a great idea and maybe it needs the finer points hammered out and then with everything ready to go the players may take more of an interest.
A question/clarification though
The teammnames would have nothing to do with your PLAYED race, correct?
ie if I was on the Drengin Dodgers I could still play Yor or whatever.
Yes, that's right. The names will just be to distinguish teams from each other and will have no impact on anything else in the league. In fact, we could dispense with those names entirely and just use something else
The 12 teams represent the 12 races, i'd like to see games only by those whom race you represent. IE, if i am a member of Team Yor then i only play as the Yor..etc..etc
Forgive me if this strays from your original concept a little Ghost but i see it this way,
I don't think that a new character would be needed nor a empire created for it, though yes that would be the better way to go about it, but there a number of players who might be interested in this that do not have a spare character to participate with. Perhaps using the Wyndstar Tournament method may work? Though if everyone interested is a spare slot or is willing to delete and use it for the league, then by all means use the empire method.
5 players per team with randomly selected game types to be played selected from this pool,
I deliberately left out anything larger than medium, cause could you imagine doing a 12 round competition using military victory type in DA on a gig map, this would take a year!!!
- No one team plays a game type twice.
- There is a weekly limit for each round.
- For every player that records the nominated victory condition on the designated map receives two points for their team. For every loss they concede a point to their opposition.
- Every player must submit a game even if it has to be a resigned game. This would be seen as a defeat.
After all points are tallied the team with the highest tally wins and their team is awarded 10 league points.
- In the event of a draw 5 league points for each team.
- After 12 rounds the team with the most league points as in they are top of the league ladder is delcared the champion.
- In the event there is more than 1 team on top with the same points a play off would occur.
I will give an example of a game, and the names are first i could think of,
The Drengin Swamp Lizards VS The Torian Green Machine
The Drengin team is represented by,
The Torian team is,
they are playing a small map shooting for a tech victory
Neilo - loses in a military defeat - 1 point to the torians
Ghostwes - tech victory - 2 points to the drengin
Mumblefratz - tech victory - 2 points to the drengin
Iceciro - tech victory - 2 points to the drengin
Wyndstar - resigned - 1 point to the torians
half time and it's 6 to 2 for the drengin
Dethadder - tech victory - 2 points to the torians
ElWhopO - loses in a influence defeat - 1 point to the drengin
Macmatt - resigned - 1 point to the drengin
Kryo - loses in a military defeat - 1 point to the drengin
MottiKhan - tech victory - 2 points to the torians
And it's a win for the drengin 9 to 6.
After 1 round the League table might look like this
Thalan -- 10
Drengin - 10
Yor ----- 10
Terrans - 10
Altarian - 5
Arcean --- 5
Korx ----- 5
Drath ---- 5
Torian --- 0
Iconian -- 0
Krynn ---- 0
Korath --- 0
Wow this is developing into one long post...anyway..
The only problems would be what difficulty level to play at maybe the time frame.
And what bearing does or would the actual game score have. To make it fair i see it as being mute. Levels the playing field if all were interested in is if it's a win or a loss.
Again just my thoughts but what do you guys think?
(please just deal with grammer/spelling i'm too tired to proof read that post
