Season 10 May Happen

Post by Rookie on Mon Jan 19, 2015 5:29 am

Feels weird writing announcements like this now. Anyway.........

I didn't think it was going to happen and it still may not, but the idea of starting this up again is being talked about, so keep an eye out. Ideas as of right now:

- Start Very Small, probably using Season 9 structure of 4 teams per division
- Plan to make playing both this and MKU possible schedule-wise
- Likely adopting MKU's reschedule policies
- Completely New Registration System

If we do this, I want the registration system to be very simple for admins to deal with. Will refresh myself on this and try to come up with a convenient system soon. Going to start off my creating a clan threads forum, and Season 10 registration will start from scratch.

Remember this is all hypothetical. If about 8 teams would play though, I can see this happening.

Things are looking positive. It seems we'll have enough clans, but this is hoping one will emerge. Would like to aim for 8 at least before starting. I will try to balance this so that this league allows people to play both PL & MKU.

I don't think we should keep the 4-team divisions like we did last season. It's far too risky since a team could drop out and make the division die (especially likely since it will be the first season back).

If we had 6 teams, we could easily have a single division round-robin going over a 12 week period or 14/16 for 7/8 teams respectively. We don't really have enough teams to have multiple divisions without it risking a collapse in that respective division. A long single-division season would hopefully encourage some dedication, communication and synergy between all the people that want to play the season.

My main concern is the length.

Using a 4 team format, the season lasts only 6 weeks, and because competition is just getting back, there's the possibility of more teams wanting to rejoin as soon as possible and a longer season would kind of block that. I'm also worried about clan skill level demotivating some younger clans too at this point.

Well since it's mostly returning clans we can pretty much guarantee that people will all be rusty and their skill will have depreciated. From my experience of playing the 4-team division it wasn't great. It felt very compact and the division activity was minimal. You'd replay teams a third of the time and overall just felt quiet and bland. If we only have divisions of 4 teams then there'll only be 2 so the skill gap wouldn't really come into effect unless we get 4 'good' clans and 4 'bad' clans.

If more people join in their masses, we can always set up additional division or merge them mid-season after the first matches have been played and simply increase the length of the season to fit it accordingly.

Some people have mentioned having 6 teams and then having a traditional 10 week season which sounds pretty rounded. If we get 8 clans it can be 14 weeks and we can always include outside clans from general outer-PL wars anyways in anticipation for the hopeful next season. The priority should be making the season as attractive as possible to players that are already willing to play. If we raise enough awareness we wont have the problem of clans wanting to join mid-season anyways.

Another idea would be trying for 8 teams, but only doing a single round robin so the season doesn't drag for too long. This would mean no rematches though, but I think it'd be better than having an extremely long season / having midseason add in teams.

Much people and much clans hate MK8 so i think PL comes back it's a good idea.

Good job Rookie, as ever.

Well the purpose of this is to provide a league for people who still want to play MK7. Wiimmfi on MKW is doing the same thing, and simply put we don't have to make a custom server to do this so it should be simple. Not only this but getting 4 per week isn't too much either compared to 5 or 6. I like MK8 a lot still, but hype has gone down now so I'll probably play both giving an edge to MK8.

If we get 10 teams I would prefer to do a Swiss Tournament because 5 team divs are very very meh

If more teams come though and we hit 12 divisions would definitely be the way to go.

Season 10 sounds like a great idea. I'm down to play, assuming my team (KSM) has enough active players. Razz

I can say that this is almost certainly going to happen. Things will start just one division smaller than MKW's Custom Server League, but I think we can still function well without having an overly large number. One thing I'd like to ask of clan leaders is to really try to emphasize to your players when matches are so we don't have too many rescheduled matches to deal with, and to communicate effectively with your opponents for the week so both teams can be as prepared as possible. Default time will still be Saturdays at 3EST, so if your clan is participating in MKU I recommend you schedule those for Sundays (which is their default day).

WEC Cool

I'll try and post some seedings when all the teams have a eligible registration thread.

We currently have 4 teams who have fully signed up so far, things missing are:
- Revive need to meet their minimum member requirement and complete details.
- Charged Brigade need to post their PL accounts on their sign-up thread.
- Dynamite need to finalize their details.
- WEC (or otherwise) need to begin and finalize their registration thread.
