Conqueror 1v1 League

After a little discussion with scum, here is the idea:

10 players, 6 months, each player plays every other player once, 9 games each.

No schedule, you just play them when you see them. Regular players only. The league table would be updated every month until all 45 games have been played.

Possibility of expansion after the first trial league, maybe with divisions, and promotion/relegation every 6 months.

Who would be interested? I must stress, you'd have to be on regularly and there can't be chances of completely quitting within 6 months as that would screw it up for everyone. Aim for a minimum of one game per player per fortnight, hopefully even quicker (6 months is an upper limit).

Post your thoughts, and say if you want in. If lots of players were interested, it could start off with two divisions from the start, but I am not expecting loads to be interested.

I don't like the idea of 10 players in a league, only playing eachother once and it being 6 months long. I would recommend 5 per division, playing eachother twice and the top/bottom players being promoted/relegated. Apathy seems to be a virtue amongst conq players so it is best to keep the divisions small so that they are not ruined by 1 lazy son of a .

That would count out alot of players including me because I have no idea if I will like this game in another 1 month, let alone 6.

But hey I will try anything, just ask my bedroom walls!

Perhaps I will change it to fewer players per division and shorter seasons; I'd like to see what other people say first.

I would prefer a more loose setup ie. doesnt matter how many players or
how many games exactly.

In other words, the 1v1 rankings list Xerxes. Sign up for that then!

However, I don't think this is a bad idea and it could be fun. Let's give it a shot I say.

-Edit- Xerxes's ninja posting speed beat me.

It's as serious as you want to take it. It will be properly organised, and games will not be optional so in that sense yes. I'm hoping for it to be an ongoing thing, with the possibility of new intakes every season. The structure can be refined as we go on to get something most suitable.

On the list so far: acro, paars, master, hubert, hallali, scum.

Ok, I think 6 will be a decent number to run a trial with. If anybody else wants in, it will start when CT09 finishes so you have until then to post. Could you confirm you want in please Scum?
