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.
