New League revisited - the final rules Mon, 06 January 2014 01:48
We are very happy that so many players signed up for THE NEW LEAGUE.
It was way more than expected, so there were calls to revisit the seeding into groups respecting the new entrys - we value them.

The TD will give you the exact rules in the next post.
Here's the general idea:

With more players - and we are happy to see that this includes more players from all classes, including some tops who never played League before - it makes sense to enlarge the setup.

Original plan was
Group A for the top 16
Group B for the "next 16"
and then a spread for still very interesting groups C, instead of the "ladder" we had in previous Leagues.

We adjust that to
Group A
Group B
Group C
and then a spread for still very interesting groups D, instead of the "ladder" we had in previous Leagues.
The average level of the D groups will still be a lot higher than it was in previous Leagues.


Original plan was
The top 12 players from "old League" get the right to play in A or B (= before the spread begins). 6 for A, 6 for B.

We adjust that to
The top 12 players (at least) from "old League" get the right to play in A, B or C (= before the spread begins). 4 for A, 4 for B, 4 for C (+ ensuring that players with rights for at least B in the "old League" will play in A,B or C)


We hope that this gives everyone the same good feeling about getting the esteemed opponents he hoped to get when he signed up.
Thanks again for your interest in "the new League" and let's have a great competition.

RULES

1) Relation of Groups

a) Groups are labelled A, B, C, D1, D2 and D3 (maximum 96 players)


There will be in most cases 16 players in group A, at most 16 players in group B (can be less) while the other players will be equally divided in other

groups. No group will have more than 16 players (except particular cases) or less than 11 players.

b) Seeding in groups for the first season

People that ended Season 13 of League in a ranking good to play in Division A or B in a possible following season will be protected. People that should have played in A will not be placed in the C division or below. Players that should have played in B will not be placed in the D division.

Group A will have:
*The best 4 players signing up with the better rights from the last season of League.
*the best 12 players signing up from TELO 2p USA not considering the previous 4.

Group B will have:
*The best 4 players remaining signing up with the better rights from the last season of League.
*the best NN players signing up from TELO 2p USA not considering the previous ones up to the completion of the group.(between 11 and 16 players). IN case of a player with the protected slot the numbers will be modified.

Group C will have:
*The best 4 players remaining signing up with the better rights from the last season of League.

*the best NN players signing up from TELO 2p USA not considering the previous ones up to the completion of the group.(between 11 and 16 players). IN case of a player with the protected slot the numbers will be modified.

Group Ds will be formed according to TELO.

c) Promotions:
Top 3 of group B are assured of a place in group A. Top 3 of group C are assured a place in group B. Top 2 of each group D are assured a place in C.


d) Formation of Division A following seasons:
Players admitted to Division A from season 2 onwards:
*Top 9 of Division A of previous season
*Promoted players from Division B
*Remaining spots will be given to the players with the higher TELO still not assigned to Division A.

Players admitted to Division B from season 2 onwards:
*players placed between 4th and 10th in previous season
*Promoted players from Division C
*Remaining spots will be given to the players with the higher TELO still not assigned to Division B.

Players admitted to Division C from season 2 onwards:
*players placed between 4th and 10th in previous season
*Promoted players from Division D
*Remaining spots will be given to the players with the higher TELO still not assigned to Division C.


2) Clashes

The clashes will be played with series of 6 games.


3 )Scoring

1 point for each game win (and 0.5 for a game tie)
2 points for a series win (and 1 for a series tie)

Tiebreaker for 2 or more people is
*head-to head,
*then difference of total matches won-lost,
*then difference of games won-lost,
*then sum of points in the direct match. (to avoid the use of seedings).


4) Alternating starts
Use the "start button"! For the first game of a match start is random. In games 2-6 the start button must be used to alternate starts and let each player

have 3 starts until game 6.


5) Open games

Games have to be open.


6) Scheduling and deadlines

a)The league will be played on a timeframe of 20 weeks.


b) There will be two intermediate deadlines at the end of week 7 and of week 14.

c) At the start of the season the TD will give out a schedule of games that HAVE to be played before the first deadline (week 7) and a schedule of games that

HAVE to be played before the second deadline (week 14). One player can play all the games as soon as he can but these games have to be played before their

particular deadlines.
For a 16 players group a player will have 4 particular clashes that need to be played before the first deadline and other 5 particular clashes that have to

be played before the second deadline. Off course if possible, he can play all the clashes before the first deadline.

*Deadlines are not meant for a generic number of clashes. YOU need to play these particular clashes before that deadline.
Schedule of the games will be given at the start of the League season. Players can play games of the last part of the season also at the start but they have

to play before the end of the first part at least the games scheduled for the first part of the season.

d) TD reaction to clashes not played:
*TD will rule clashes not played at Monday 14.00 european time of a particular deadline (Monday morning to give the full days also to USA based players).

*TD will rule total wins, partial wins, double losses etc... according to his feeling about who is more at fault. In case of doubts about who is more at

fault, he will rule double loss.

*TD will not contact players to help them schedule the games.

*TD will consider for the ruling only the info that reached him by PM or was posted in the forum 96 hours before the deadline time (so info reaching him

before 14.00 Thursday European time of a particular deadline)

*Games scheduled but for every type of trouble not played in the last 96 hours will not be valued in the feeling about who was more at fault (you were too

close too the deadline). Public attempts to schedule before the last 96 hours will be considered in the ruling.



*TD will post his rulings in the forum immediately after the deadline and he will not comment about them in public.
(TD will prepare the rulings before the weekend and will publish only the ones about the games not played in last weekend)


7) Etiquette

Usual rules of etiquette are to be observed. TD will give penalties or disqualifications in case of severe violations of the etiquette.
*Players have to post scheduled matches in the forum.
*Players have to report results in the forum.

8 ) Dropouts and returning players

*Players coming back after not playing a season or more will be placed according to their TELO score (see rules for placement for TELO score).
* In case of dropouts: if one player missed one match, then he will keep his ranking. If he missed more than one match he will be classified last.

The played matches will count for his opponents if he played at least 2/3 of the matches, otherwise all his matches will be discarded entirely. In the first case, the matches not played will be ruled by the TD that will rule them according to the info he has available.
