2014 Competitions : Discussion Fri, 15 November 2013 07:17
Hi guys,
2013 is on its way out, time to think of 2014.

Summary of the year :
  • Better turnouts in SPWC series tournaments.
  • Creation of Fusion and Multi Euro championship with dandee's help.
  • NC had a nice competitive Round Robin, and numerous new players.
  • Creation of the Tournament Elo.

    Goals for next year
  • Getting the same turnout in SPWC series
  • Put the back league as a central event in the year, increase its turnout. Improve its interest, prestige and competitiveness.
  • Use Telo as a reference.
  • Keep Improving the consistency of the calendar.

    Topic of discussions :
  • Finalizing the final format of the league
  • Switch SPWC series to swiss style.


    About the calendar itself :
    Elric suggested a hierarchy, that I adapted a bit :
    Premium events :
    NC - SPWC/EMC - League
    Other Main Events :
    Fusion - Multi US (MPWC)
    Secondary events :
    SMC - AMC - Multi Euro
    Goodies
    FUN - AAT - QT


    Nations Cup and SPWC/EMC needs a space dedicated in the calendar due to their importance.
    League will go on through the year and can overlap.

    It could be better to put AMC and SMC (swiss style) in February so that players can train if need be. Organizing those tournaments away from SPWC and EMC would maybe boost the interest.

    The relevancy of an AAT tournament is to be questionned (bet Drake will object Razz but hey man, I talk about your TELO and promote your MVP!), since the same 12/15 players have played it and the same 4/6 have reached the semis every year. It could free up some space. At worse in July/August.

    Drake offered to organize an MVP tournament at the end of the year (like a Final Four, one on US Map, a second on EuroMap). It would gather the winner of SPWC/EMC, the winner of the League + the top 2 Telo (if not top 2 of the league).
    That would also work for the Euro map.
    It would a fun way to finish the year !

    My proposal is the following :
    January		        MPWC Finals	League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    February		AMC/SMC	        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    March	        Fusion		        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    April	        Fusion		        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    May	        SPWC/EMC (mid-may)	League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    June	        SPWC/EMC		EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    July			                EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    August			                EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    September	NC	         	EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    October	        NC		
    ---------------------------------------------------
    November	NC	  MPWC	
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Decemeber		  MPWC  	MVP US MVP Euro
    


    It is important to release TELO standings as often as possible (after every tournament) to make it interesting and useful.
    Ticki is a concern though... Hope it will be fixed at some point.

    Any comment, proposal is more than welcome.

    I question the hierarchy and if League is really a premium event.

    It is a minor point, but premium I think gives it too much weight. Since League happens all the time, the premium nature of it is highly suspect. I am not saying it is not a good activity, but a premium activity? Not much interest paid by people outside the people playing their match. It is not like people observe a league match, or try to tune in.
    In my opinion, League is more something that keeps a competitive edge for those who need games between tournaments to have more meaning. it should be moved down to Other Main events. (and personal bias may be that Fusion Cup should maybe be popped up higher, as certainly it is at least as high as League)

    (Hmmmm, I read note directly below from Qorlas, and see it could become premium, but putting it there is premature.)

    League is becoming one season per year competition... a long competition but one per year, so it is going to be different from having multiple seasons and multiple champs.

    for me no problem

    1) February.
    There is a league and 2 SP tournament.

    2) As the last year
    1/2 group in july
    1/2 in august
    Final in september before nc.
    Only Euro League Tournament.

    I think that is good idea.
    And big holidays are saved.

    It is important to start first with the organization

    Well I understand your point.
    That's a goal : resintate League as a premium event. Why ?

    NC = anybody can play anybody basically.
    SPWC = your opponent is getting stronger and stronger. But the chance of playing more than 2 or 3 top 20 TELO are pretty limited. That's also a KO-system round. The shape of the moment is rewarded. Swiss style may upgrade the competition though.

    League = it would reward consistency on a longer span, would give more than 10 matches against a top 20/30 TELO opponents in Division A. It would also offer some good encounters in Division B.
    Winning League would almost be the hardest individual goal to achieve here, provided most top players sign up.

    Please upgrade Fusion to premium (maybe that also helps to get the "DOW achievement" for it & for the CLs we had Wink )

    Why should the team event where everybody has equal chances of success regardless of nationality be worth less than the one that many good players know they can never win?


    I'm still not convinced that longer League with bigger groups is a good idea (see also Wildfire's arguments).
    Could we maybe get the details on the new League plans and then have a vote who prefers
    a) the new version
    b) the old version with 2 seasons per year in the same combined timeframe - maybe US-EU-US-EU
    (and who would play what)?
    For the League groups (however big they shall be) I think Hecki definitely has a valid point. Somebody who has played in A for quite a while should clearly have a right to be in the best group, whatever his T-ELO may be.

    Only if you are a Top ...
    Otherwise you start with a top 20 opponent, and in case you survive that you get the next of those.
    If it's changed to Swiss, Tops will start against a weak player then get mainly other tops, weaker players will start against a top and then continue mainly against players of their own strength.

    One more remark on Swiss (I mentioned that already in a previous discussion): Please let the games count, not only the match results.
    Meaning: If we play 6 games/match after the first round you can have 0, 0.5, 1, ... 5.5, 6 points, not just 0 (losing the match), 0.5 (tie), 1 (win).
    Reason: Better spread and a better chance to recover from a (close) loss.

    The "Premium thing" is more about the priority I gave in the definition of the calendar. Maybe there was some misunderstandings in the concept.

    First NC, SPWC and League were set, then MPWC and Fusion.

    About League, it's all in Qorlas' hands. Last time we discussed about it (before NC), I thought we were including the top 4 of the last season's Division A in the new League's Division A.

    About Wildfire's comments :
  • single day events = QT
  • If we move to swiss style SPWC, shorter league format would be quite redundant with it.

    That said, I understand Qorlas will post a proposal for the new rules about it. I have no problem with a vote (but would a potential 10-person vote be relevant?) nor with discussions to improve the text.

    Combine the vote with the registration?

    ---

    League, next season, signup thread:
    Explanation and timeline version 1
    Explanation and timeline version 2

    I register for (you can register for both versions or just for one of them)
    Version 1 (if that is chosen) yes/no
    Version 2 (if that is chosen) yes/no
    I generally prefer version 1/2

    At the deadline we count the registration for Version 1 vs Version 2 and the preferences.
    In case the number of players is clearly higher (let's say more than 5 participants difference?) for a certain version, this one is it.
    In case the numbers are pretty much equal but the preferences are clearly higher for a certain version, let the preferences decide.
    In case both is pretty much equal take the new version (showing respect for those, who worked it out).
    ---

    Crazy idea? I think it could work - in case it does, you definitely get all the relevant votes, not just 10.

    I think from all the behind the scenes talking, longer/larger League was basically already voted for. I personally prefer more leagues/smaller groups and then have some sort of playoff, but I have been told that is an American way of thinking and since most players are European we will try their way!

    As for Permier Events, I think it is just terminology, since for me the premier events are the ones with the higher "k-factor" for T-ELO. Right now for USA map stuff, we have NC and SPWC highest, then League, then other things. For other maps, highest is Fusion and EMC/AMC etc., then other events.

    Hopefully we can try a swiss-style event for SPWC/EMC/AMC, but as for having games counts, not just match result, it will really depend on the pairing software we use. I couldn't find any free software that would work prefect for TTR, but I found one that would work good enough for our first time.

    Well sorry to come up with another new idea that may have nothing to do in that discussion...
    This is the "SUNDAY MULTI" concept, thought about it since I played both league and MPWC...

    I've heard about schedule issues during MPWC and the forthcoming "one season by year league".

    Why not replace MPWC by a Multi US League ?
    The idea :
    - Multi US League is open during non premium events.
    - One season by year.
    - Like league and MPWC, some groups with 6-7-8 or more players
    - Each sunday between 17:00 and 23:00 CET, players from same groups can schedule games to play US multis (according to their availabilities = 6 sundays a year ?)
    - No limits of game by player, just a minimum games have to be played (15 for example)
    - Ranking in each group is determined by games won (points like MPWC) / games played. Some players or groups can play 232 games if they want.
    - Relegation from a year to another like league.

    This is the basic idea. Sunday could be monday ! Signing up players confirm they are mostly available to play on sunday/monday.
    As regular multi player, I'd enjoy to play competitive multi games all year, not only during MPWChristmasChampionship...
    Not sure how it would work with TELO and no intention to bury MEMC (I enjoyed it this year).

    Hi,

    I don't really understand the reasoning behind saying, that Swiss-style SPWC would be ok, but only, if game wins count instead of matchwins. If we had a swiss with matchwins counting, you would probably(depending on the number of rounds) have to win every match to win the tournament(maybe you can afford one draw). So basically, this is the same as Knockout, except the players that were "knocked out" before can keep playing(without realistic chances to win the event).

    If we count game wins, problem is with possible forfeited games(a player does not show up anymore).How should it be counted?If it is 6-0(or how_many_games_there_might_be-0), then you could make a big jump with such a win in the last round. If its not, you did not have the Chance to get a result as good as you might have gotten with a real match.

    The other issue is about being lower in the Rankings and getting an "easy" opponent you can beat 6-0 or whatever might mix up rankings. I don't think this is too much of a problem though, there probably wont be any "easy" opponents

    If we run a swiss-style tournament you will most likely still have a chance to win with 1-2 losses. The tournament will run enough rounds so that happens. It will depend if we cut to a top 8 or a top 4 or something else.

    I don't think games won would ever be the first stat used for pairing of each round it would be match win, and then maybe game wons as a tie breaker.

    There should be no forfeited games, everyone will have option to drop from tournament before a new round starts.

    And i bet there will be many forfeits. What if players can't find a date - or if they cause the same time problems like in every other tournament? Why should they be more gentle in this tournament?

    i re-post my first idea:

    WORLD LEAGUE TOURNAMENT

    We 6-7 times of the year where do 6-7 tournaments.
    We use the same method of tennis.
    We can call the tournaments at Wimbledon and Roland Garros with the names of ticket city.Es: Houston, Palermo, Zurich

    4 usa
    2 europe
    1 swiss or asia

    At least 16 players for the tournament.If you enter more players in the preliminary rounds as individual tournament

    The first tournament the draw is based on Elo rating list of the three specialty.
    From the second the tournament draw is based on the World League Tournament.
    If you sign up new players start in the preliminary rounds.
    There is no limit to the number of players.
    Only limit over 1500 or players who normally play tournaments

    Matches from 7 meetings as nc

    This idea has the advantage of simplifying the formula of the League which is sometimes too long.
    And can entice new players to join.

    Scores.
    250 winner
    150 finalist
    90 Semifinalist
    45 Second round
    20 First round
    10 preliminary

    You can also think about tournaments with different formula (more or less players) with several victory points.
    As in tennis the difference between Wimbledon and Montreal.

    We have an annual ranking of the World League Tournament with a final winner.
    From the second year the draw of first tournament will follow the final rankings of the previous year.

    We can also devise a final Masters tournament with the best 8 players in the standings at the end of the year.

    Sorry to answer a bit late, but better late than never Wink

    So, I insist once again, about the month of November : I don't think it's a very good idea to start MPWC too early, when NC Playoffs begin with so many players still involved.

    I'd suggest that MPWC shouldn't become before mid-November (end should be even better, maybe), because NC finishes around mid-December. See below :


    Sysy's proposal - with my adds for November and December :
    January		        MPWC Finals	League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    February		AMC/SMC	        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    March	        Fusion		        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    April	        Fusion		        League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    May	        SPWC/EMC (mid-May)	League
    ---------------------------------------------------
    June	        SPWC/EMC		EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    July			                EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    August			                EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    September	NC	         	EuroLeague
    ---------------------------------------------------
    October	        NC		
    ---------------------------------------------------
    November	NC	  MPWC (mid-Nov)
    ---------------------------------------------------
    December	NC(mid-D) MPWC  	MVP US MVP Euro

    About hierarchy of events, it depends if you talk about the "k-factor" (Drake's words to represent standard of skills involved) or about the crowd around... it's not always the same.

    NC and SPWC are our higher annual events because of both, obviously.

    But about "k-factor", I still think (but after all my opinion could be a bit distorter Wink ) that the level required in US map tournaments is far higher than in other maps. That's why we could put TTR League high too.

    But if you consider a team event, there is automatically more spectators, because of teammates, and sometimes other players of other teams involved by a Group result. That's why we could put Fusion Cup high too (even after one year only !).

    Anyway, this debate is endless and a bit subjective, but not so important for our reflexions about calendar.

    What about multi Legendary Asia as same date as multi EU?
    I think it will be very interesting for 14-21 players (2 -3 group).

    Well, I wonder if it's not best to have single-night events all through the year in multis.

    5 players gather a night :
    THey play 2 5ers, 4 4ers (a different player sits every match)

    4 players gather a night :
    They play 5 4ers.


    Players can choose the map.

    Data is going into Multi Telo by games.
    Best 5 players in the MultiTELO ranking, who played at least 4 or 5 single night events in the year, compete for the final single event, let's say in January 2015.

    Advantadge :
  • No more registration, nor time constraints. Just one thread for each map to schedule or post results if people find each other in the lobby.
  • No more scheduling headaches : you play with whoever is available
  • Format is easy maintenance, and promotes consistency over a good streak

    Drawback :
    It requires a bit of regularmaintenance on TELO. I'll be probably too busy myself with the TELO 2p. If anybody volunteers, Drake (if Drake does not scare you) or I can explain the process.

    Well sorry to come up with another new idea that may have nothing to do in that discussion...
    This is the "SUNDAY MULTI" concept, thought about it since I played both league and MPWC...

    I've heard about schedule issues during MPWC and the forthcoming "one season by year league".

    Why not replace MPWC by a Multi US League ?
    The idea :
    - Multi US League is open during non premium events.
    - One season by year.
    - Like league and MPWC, some groups with 6-7-8 or more players
    - Each sunday between 17:00 and 23:00 CET, players from same groups can schedule games to play US multis (according to their availabilities = 6 sundays a year ?)
    - No limits of game by player, just a minimum games have to be played (15 for example)
    - Ranking in each group is determined by games won (points like MPWC) / games played. Some players or groups can play 232 games if they want.
    - Relegation from a year to another like league.

    This is the basic idea. Sunday could be monday ! Signing up players confirm they are mostly available to play on sunday/monday.
    As regular multi player, I'd enjoy to play competitive multi games all year, not only during MPWChristmasChampionship...
    Not sure how it would work with TELO and no intention to bury MEMC (I enjoyed it this year).

    Maybe these 2 proposals could be mixed up, cause they don't seem so far away ? Smile

    Yes !
    I like Cromze suggestion of a fixed date. With Drake, we were discussing about how to limit the amount of game so that TELO does not end up being a copy of DOW's multi ranking.

    Example (Asia lovers should find their best day):
  • Saturday night only appointment for Multi Asia,
  • Tuesday night only for Euro map,
  • Wednesday + Sunday night for Multi US.

    A night (European time or American time) has to be scheduled in the forum to be counted in TELO. This would limit the amount of games to enter as data.

    This requires someone to maintain multi TELO.

    2p USA TELO itself is already plenty of work for me. If someone volunteers, he/she can be taught how it works.

    Dandee, Morientes, Cromze ?
    One for multi USA TELO, another for Multi Euro and a third for Multi Asia ?

    Ok, cool.

    Elka also volunteered to help. Ideally a third person for the third map would be awesome.
    I'll check with Drake if there's a way to make the data copy-pasting easier for you guys. It may take some time though.

    Once that whole thing will be fixed, we'll be able to design regular multi events on various maps all through the year. Along with the TELO you would maintain, we will have all the tools needed.

    I'll keep in touch in January.
    Thanks !

    Bonjour,

    I suppose that you have already asked DOW that it supplies you a way to reach their data.

    The results of the games with the name of the game, the map played, the name of the players and the date, does not seem to me to be very sensitive data.

    It would be interesting to codify the name of the game to extract more easily those who interest you.

    You can try to request their scrum Master, Brice. !!!!!

    I can give some help for Multi TELO.
    BUT I'm quite bad with statistics and have only low basis with Excel... I could still give some time to make the data copy-pasting, should not be that complicated Wink

    Another point, I don't really know how works the current multi TELO but I think the games won should not be the only factor : you can win a multi tourney without winning a lot of games if you're regularly 2nd...

    I won't be on the internet very much this week, let's discuss about this in 2014 ! Julien you have my mail !
    Merry Xmas all !

    I like this idea.

    Very close to my former suggestion about open multi tournament. Meaning same as Cromze here, but no groups, no signing up, just players in the lobby wanna play competitive multi agree on it and send scores in Multitournee thread. Table updated and minimum number of games set to proceed in playoffs.

    If you read anything about TELO and "games" won, it is in contrast to "matches" won. There are no matches in multi tournaments, so "games" won is used.

    However, that doesn't mean 1st place only. It is done exactly how DoW does multi - basically breaks down a multi game into a bunch of games, so 1st place in a 4 player multi, means Player 1 beat Player 2,3,4 (so 3 wins), Player 2 beat Player 3,4 (So 2 wins and 1 loss), etc.

    Without any frame, players may throw any random multi in the thread. And we would end up with :
    1) Tons of data
    2) An ELO in the end pretty similar to DoW.

    In my opinion we can try quick multi tournaments but at the same way wew have to keep alive Multi USA and Multi Euro.

    Remind that we had the Speedy tournaments in the past and after few editions people lost interest in them. For me, to keep longer structurred tournaments is safer.
