*********************************************

This is the Roll Through the Ages Ladder League

Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoYE2bGf--iMdFg...

Synopsis: If you join up with this league, you will join a "ladder" of Roll Through the Ages players. You will play rounds of 4 games (probably about one round a month or so) against players near you on the ladder. If you win a bunch, you move up the ladder. If you lose a bunch, you move down! Once the games are all completed, we update the ladder and start again. If you would like to join, please post below and subscribe to this thread.

The first round will include 2x 3p games and 2x 4p games.


Details:

a) Players will join the league and start out at the bottom of the "Ladder". This is simply a list of players in the league sorted hierarchically. For the initial ladder placement, I will assign folks according to TS value. There is a good amount of volatility built into the ladder, so players will have plenty of chance to move up (or down...).

b) In each "round" of play, each player will play four games (typically, could be one more or less) against the other players near them on the ladder. The round will continue on until all the games are completed.

c) Once the games are finished, players will move on the ladder according to their results from that round. Specifically, you will move up one step for each opponent you bested, and one bonus step if you win a game. For instance, with 4p games, 1st would earn 4 steps, 2nd would earn 2 steps, 3rd would earn 1 step, and 4th would earn 0 steps. You never lose steps per se, but as other players pass you up, you may move down on the ladder. If two players would end on the same step, the previously-higher-ranked player takes the higher position. In your first round of the league, your steps will be doubled to give you a chance to move up quickly.

d) Once the ladder is updated, we move right on to a new round!

e) Players can join in or drop whenever they like. Additionally, players can take a round off at any point. If you decide to skip a round, you will go down one absolute step, but no one will otherwise pass you by.

f) Generally I envision this as a multiplayer league, but the format will change from round to round. The first player to win all their games in a round will have the opportunity to select the # of players and variant for the following round. The first round will include one two three-player games and one four-player game, all with basic map and rules.

g) I imagine this as being a lot of fun, a little competitive, and a great chance to improve by playing against players of similar skill level to yours. If this is successful and folks enjoy it.

Invitations and Data Entry:

a) When a round starts, I will let you know here and via personal message. To start your games, just open up the spreadsheet and find the appropriate round. For any games which you have not already received invitations, send them out yourself and mark the game with an "I" in the score fields so we know it's been invited.

b) When the game is finished, just enter the score for each player in the correct field. I will take care of the rest.

Let's get this league rolling, compadres. Here is the link for the spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoYE2bGf--iMdFg...

Please get all of your games started immediately. Cheers!

Important Announcement:

In order to keep these leagues moving along (although this one has been going great so far) I'm adding a few nitpicky rules that I want everyone to be aware of. If you are an active member, these won't affect you.

a) All games must be starting within a week of the official announcement. Anything not started within a week will be eligible for DQ.

b) Any player who has more than one game thrown out in a round from inactivity/DQ will be automatically dropped from the next round. He/she will be welcome to rejoin with a commitment to get his/her games started punctually.

c) Once 90% of the games in a given round have been started, remaining games will have one week to finish before we move on the next round. Those games that do not finish will earn their players steps for the next available round if they do finish eventually.

Let's get ready to roll!

Round 2 pairings are up and ready to go. Remember that if you are at the bottom of the ladder, you may play an extra game this round. Also, make sure all your games are started by next Monday to avoid potential DQ!

Cheers,
Doron

I've got an "A Game" with the exact same opponents as my "B Game." Intentional? (At the bottom of the ladder, I suppose it is possible.)

ETA: And it looks like it has been fixed. Thank you.
