Hi, community

The moment is coming and very soon will be reality the "League of MAN2 2019" tournament.

We will publish the tournament in website for inscription around November, 15.

In this preview we would like to explain the main features of this new format of tournament.

1.- It will be a different "Divisions" tournament. Each Division will be the group where the players will be included for play an "All vs. All" format.

2.- We will have 3 different Divisions in this first edition of League: Honor Division, First Division and Second Division.

3.- Honor Division will have 8 players and First and Second will have 14 players.

4.- In this first edition will be the glicko score at the end of inscription period the used variant for include the players in the different Divisions. In the next editions glicko-score will not have any role for this inclusion.

5.- In First and Second Division (14 players) will be 13 games playing only 1 side by opponent (red or green). In Honor Division (8 players) will be 14 games playing both of sides by opponent (red and green).

6.- Each player will have associated an icon with its Division before the League starts. These icons work visually like the awards in tournaments section of website.

The wonderful icons we will use (you can see in attached image) were designed by player "zxcvcxz". I hope you like them as much as me. :D

7.- Before the start of games all the Divisions will be ordered randomly for assign a number by player. This order will be crucial for to know the pairing of the different rounds. In First and Second Division it will give the side too.

8.- Games will be divided in 3 different packs for avoid a high number of games at once:
    1st pack: January 2019
    2nd pack: March 2019
    3rd pack: May 2019

In attached image you can see the tables of pairing by pack.

9.- After the League's games are finished will be the moment for "upgrade" or "degrade" players between Divisions:
    The 2 lower scored players in Honor Division will be degraded to First Division.
    First Division will have double movements:
      2 higher scored players will be upgraded to Honor Division.
      4 lower scored players will be degraded to Second Division.
    The first 4 players in Second Division will be upgraded to First Division.

10.- This new "acquired" rights will be used for the inclusion of different players in Divisions for following editions.

11.- Map of this first edition will be Anubis and settings used in games will be the usual for tournaments:
      -Density medium of allies
      -10 turns of revenue
      -Infinite in-game time limit
      -10 days of chess-clock and 23 frozen hours

I hope this new tournament will be well received by the whole community. Really all the players could take part in it because Divisions give the chance of play similar level's opponents and each one of us can set our own goals (win the League, be upgraded, don't be degraded, be in the top 5 of Division, etc...) :wink:

And remember, the most important thing is enjoy our wonderful game!

See you there!

Anubis is not a good map for this tournament , trinity is better

I think that if we change the map more players will sign up.

Players give your opinion on this topic.

Moderators should seek the advice of players before imposing a map that suits them!!

Hi, community!

We have reached the limit of 36 players joined in League and we can start to publish some info.

In the attached images you can see:

1.- The ordered list of players on basis to the glicko-points in the moment when registration was closed. Remember that one of the tie-break rules (the last published) use this order and not the possible glicko at the end of the League.

2.- The 3 different Divisions with the players included in each one. This first edition use the order in the list of glicko-points for include the players like it was published in rules. Therefore the inclusion is really easy :D .

The order of each player inside each Division is still not the place definitive. Remember we told about use "random" order inside each Division for know the side (in First and Second Division) and rounds of pairing.

The random order will be published around December, 15 in this same topic. With that info all the players will know who will be the opponent in each round and the side (red or green) when it works.

We will publish again the table with pairing and games by packs in that following post.

I wish you a great experience with this new format of tournament! :wink:

Hi, again!

In attached images you can see the random order inside each Division that will be used for create the pairing games for the different Divisions. This order is crucial for know the side of each player (red or green) in First and Second Division.

On basis to previously published pairing structure's tables you can see too the different pairing by round in all the Divisions. In First and Second Division the first player of pair plays red side.

In grey color you can see the rounds of the 1st pack of games.

This 1st pack will start on January, 7.

I hope this tables are easy to understand for all the players.

Hi, community

Only a small explanation about how tournaments work for "new" players in this kind of battles:

1.- All the games of the "League" will be created by the moderators. The players don't need send challenges to the opponents in the pairing published tables. When the games are started they will appears in "Games" section (red side) or "Sent & Finished" (green side).

2.- "Frozen hours": Each player starts the games with 10 days and 23 hours in his side for finish the game. This time only start to decrease after 23 hours from opponent's turn. That 23 hours are "frozen" after each turn of the opponent. For example, if you make your turn after 1 day and 6 hours from opponent's turn your time will decrease only 7 hours. If you play daily your time never decrease :wink:

3.- Follow the tournament progress: Like I have published in a previous topic (http://www.massiveassaultnetwork.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=28012) is really easy to follow the progress of any tournament. Clicking in "Players" section of the tournament (League in this case) in "Tournaments" section you will see the list of players of each group (in this case, Division) in a new window. Clicking again in the name of the Group (Division) you will see the table with the pairing and the games (active, finished, etc...)

I have thinked that this explanation could help to not usual tournament's players to understand how is working.

Of course, I wish all the players a great tournament and please, have fun!! :D
