    GGL | WC3L Playoffs

    Post by GGL|shiKaka on Mon May 30, 2011 9:15 am

    Well season one is over!
    (ended pretty rough, but i'll take the blame)
    A lot of things will be changing for season, and i mean A LOT of things.
    Let's introduce the playoffs!!

    The playoffs will consist the top 8 teams from the season.

    #1 | Firestalker [Fs] | 7:1 | 55pts
    #2 | Clan OwNu [o_O] | 6:1 | 45pts
    #3 | EGiS Gaming [EGiS] | 6:1 | 39pts
    #4 | no Excuses [nE] | 6:2 | 54pts
    #5 | Latest and Greatest [LaG.TT] | 5:2 | 44pts
    #6 | n2o Gaming . us [n2o] | 4:2 | 39pts
    #7 | Riders of Storm [RoS] | 4:3 | 36pts
    #8 | DkH Multigaming e.V. [DkH] | 4:3 | 34pts

    Seedings were based off first records, then points. Since not all teams finished their games it was a little skewed but i feel this was fair enough. There was also once case where the RPI (strength of schedule) was taken into play, which was the top 4.

    RPI incident | though nE had the second highest points in the standings and did win pretty convincingly, every team except the 2 they beat had losing records and weren't as good compared to the upper teams. The 2 good teams they played the lost 0-5 and 1-4. So this is an example where the RPI came into play. It is much like college football RPI where it is basically your strength of schedule.

    Format | There is a newer format of play that i want to test out for next season. I'm pretty sure i will use it for next season so what the new format is, is this
    solo series | Player 1 vs Player 2 - Best of 3
    solo series | Player 3 vs Player 4 - Best of 3
    solo series | Players 5 & 6 vs Players 7 & 8 - Best of 3

    -So just 3 series' to be played.
    -There will be NONONONONONONONONOOOOOOOO wilcards.
    -Each team is allowed 1 SUBCARD per round of playoffs.
    -No they do not stack, or roll over.

    Maps |
    Solos:
    Echo Isles
    Turtle Rock
    2on2s:
    Goldshire

    -Please look at battle reports, we produced more than enough players at every clan war. I'm done waiting for teams up to 4 weeks to finish stupid wildcard matches it's a waste of time. If i just disallow wildcards teams will bitch and series' wont get played it's pretty simple.
    -I understand that Clan OwNu's roster consists of all of USEast and USWest but that's not my problem to produce matches for you to play.
    -Every league we won i wasn't admin in except W3BLeague where we won fair and square. In fact all the season stat's are still up, you can take a look for yourself. Winning matches doesnt change. www.W3BLeague.co.nr

    Any other complants?

    My complaint is its never in good standing to change a leagues format until the entire season is through. The same teams might not have made playoffs in this format as in the other format. If you want to change it for next season, I'm fine with that, but during a current season is a huge gaffe. The only teams who had problems scheduling were the ones who had shaky management, for the teams with good management its not hard to schedule for 4 players. I haven't ever rage quit wc anyway. OwNu only has 6 active players up from 4 at the start of the season, but never had a problem scheduling this.
    This change in format completely changes the dynamic of a clanwar. Team with a weak overall team, but 1 really strong player have their chances of winning increased dramatically. It effectively doubles the effectiveness of one good player. And I never said the change was because you couldn't field a team. It's because your roster is top heavy in terms of skill. You don't "test" things in the playoffs. Thats why there are qualifiers.

    -Again like i said before we only actually lost 1 cw, and FF'ed one due to my fault. I don't get how our roster is too top heavy? We had different players win every week than previous weeks in our stats with the exception of bar who played 1 clan war.
    -It really had nothing to do with "our chances of winning". We played EGiS, our chances if ANYTHING dropped with this format. Knowing FoCuS would play and that our 2s team isn't as strong as theirs was a huge risk.
    -And why not test it out now? i never said i wanted to do it the whole playoffs.. in fact i was going to change it back after R1. Seemed logical to me to do before basing an entire season on it.
    -I dont understand how you could say people have a hard time scheduling? i already have one series trying to play on Monday AFTER THE DEADLINE.. when all the technically need is 2 players there. Between week 7 & 8 every team didn't play at least 1 clan war i think because it was too hard to get all their players there on certain days.
