Playdiplomacy League 2020

Postby Woolgie » 27 Nov 2019, 22:46

So, a mere 15 months after the last discussions on the issue, announcing....

Playdiplomacy League 2020

Please sign up below.

Games

All games are to be 'standard' diplomacy on the regular v2 map, Regular press, ranked games. Draws will be allowed (No DIAS) and draws will be voted by secret ballot.
Games will be anonymous countries not anonymous players. Country allocation will be random.

Deadlines will be 2/1/1 with a finalise option. There will be no processing exceptions.

NMR 1st turn protect will be on. Games will be protected.

Games will be password protected and players will be PM'd details of each game as and when it starts. Games will not prematurely end, a game will last as long as it lasts.

Schedule

All players will be scheduled in four games across seven ‘match days’. No player will play any other play three times (max two times, most once). The first match day will be on or shortly after 2nd January. The last match day will be 1st September. Some people will play their games earlier and some later than others and if anyone has a preference they should make this know. Adherence to preferences on scheduling cannot be guaranteed.

The schedule maths for a division of 21 players is as follows:

Code: Select all
Player Player Player Player Player Player Player Month
     2      3      7      8      9     10     17   Jan
     5      6     11     15     16     19     20   Jan
     1      4     12     13     14     16     20   Feb
     1      3      6     10     16     17     18   Mar
     2      4      9     11     12     15     21   Mar
     5      7      8     13     15     18     19   May
     6      7     14     17     19     20     21   Jun
     1      2      5      8     10     12     21   Jul
     3      4      9     11     13     14     18   Jul
     1      2      3      4      5      6      7   Sep
     8      9     12     13     15     17     20   Sep
    10     11     14     16     18     19     21   Sep


Whilst attempting to observe scheduling preferences allocation of player numbers will be mainly random.

Players

Anyone wanting to join can join, prior to the joining deadline of 27th December 2019. Subject to the number of players joining there may be more than one division and the number of players per division may change. If it does change then the number of times you may player any other player may also change but you will only play four games.

Division allocation will first be based on your finishing position in the previous Playdiplomacy League, with all but the bottom four players in each division being guaranteed to start in that same division or higher. Players joining that did participate in the previous Playdiplomacy League will be allocated to a division based on their Playdiplomacy Standard Game Rating comparative to other players joining.

Scoring

Scoring will be based on soloing or participating in a draw and on the number of SCs held.

252 points shall be awarded to a soloist or shall be split equally amongst those players participating in a draw. Since 252 is not divisible by 5 in a five way draw only 250 points shall be split equally and the remaining 2 points shall be awarded to the player with the most SCs at the time of the draw. Should two players be equal they shall receive 1 point each.
Should more than 2 players be equal then 1 point shall be award each to two players by the rolling of dice.

136 points shall awarded to owners of SCs at the end of the game, 4 points per SC.

Division Managers

I am seeking people to act as Division Managers. This role will be disciplinarian in nature and there is no need to worry about scheduling or setting up games. Please nominate yourself if you are interested and you have a good and long term site standing. No one will be allowed to be Division Manager for the Division they are in.

Other Rules

Any surrenders or failure to join a game which you instructed to join will face possible elimination from the league (you will be PM'd for an explanation. Any lack of a suitable reason and you are out!) The division manager’s decision is final. The division manager is subject to change without notice.

Substitutes are the responsibility of the player and any change in player either during or between games will result in an award of -10 points.

Should the player not offer or find a substitute then the division manager reserves the right to find a substitute on the player’s behalf, however that substitution will be final and should the original player wish to rejoin the league they will enter the bottom division. The -10 points award will still apply.

A minimum of three players will be promoted to the next division (except from the top division) at the end of the season. Subject to drop outs more players may be promoted.

A maximum of five players will be relegated to the next lower division (except from the lowest division) at the end of the season. Subject to drop outs less players may be relegated.

Should two players in the same division be on the same number of points then the following tie-breakers will apply:
- Most solo victories
- Most 2-way draws
- Most 3-way draws, etc.
- Highest number of SCs at end of any one game
- Highest combined number of SCs across all games featuring those tie-breaking players
- Dice roll
