League Reforms

27/09/19 11:48
The current league system is clearly not working, either through match fixing or due to not having enough of 1 particular level teams to fill a league full of the same level, I.e. L98's competing with L99's in the same league.

So, I propose that we scrap the current system and replace it with a new one.

This new system would collect every score from the same level and promote the highest scoring teams in that level to create the next seasons championships.

This will act firstly by rewarding the teams who score the highest point total across all leagues, secondly create consistent leagues where everyone is the same level, and lastly will make it a lot harder to match fix as everyone will need to win as many games as possible.

The current system is broken, currently someone in one league could score 21 points and not get promoted, whereas someone at the same level but different league could score 19 points and get the promotion. This means that the better team loses out.

Thoughts?

It may take a little too much work to go through every lvl in order to attain some kind of parity.

The biggest contention I have atm, is the new points system. It makes Chmps more sterile. My season effectively ended with 4 games to go. Under the old rules I would have been in contention for a top 3 right thru to the last minute of my final game.

ps. In fact I would have easily made top 3 under the old system. So I don't get the benefit now from playing an attractive attacking tactic.

You're right PB, it has become sterile, almost predictable. There is no reward for outsmarting your opponent's strats and getting a big winning margin. The loss of bonus points has turned the leagues into a procession. SN have lost interest in improving the game, but will leave the lights on as long as the money keeps rolling in. Days are numbered for me.

Hope you're good bud. Not gc'd in a while.
