We need to talk....
« on: April 02, 2009, 11:02:11 AM »
Okay, what i am proposing is not a replacement for civplayers.com. This is my personal take on how clan competition should run.

I believe the clan situation can be greatly improved with a more practical platform to play on. Everyone is aware of the problems of the CCC, too many players required per clan, and what if players can't do weekends? Bad times..

We need a system where a small 'team' or 'clan' can fight in a competitive environment.

civladder will allow clans of size 5-8 to form and fight over the course of a month, points are rewarded for wins and taken away for loses, the clan with the most points at the end of the month wins. 1st day of the month points are reset and everyone is on an even playing field for the new months tournament. We will borrow the complex ranking system developed by westwood studios for their strategy gaming ladders.

The ranking system ::

if points are equal then +32 to the winner -32 to the loser. If they are masses apart then the winner can only get +64 however much the points are apart. And if the losers minus (10% of there value) is greater than the winners gain then there loss = winners gain. This then stops a 1100 clan losing 110 points from a loss vs a 1200 clan


Features:

Winner reports result - no confirming required
Games show map played
Games show Era played
Game Comments
Stats - Shows previous games and details
Player Stats - Shows top performing players and their clan
Create clans instantly

We can add features at a later date, such as top clans by era or map.

Launch date: 1st May 2009


We will need everyone to come together and support this system, whether by contributing with development and ideas - or simply just setting up a solid team and hosting some clan games in the lobby.

While I support this very much, I´d like to add, taht so far during CCC´s basically all clans cover all events. Rarely does a clan leave out more then 1 event, if that at all.

I would suggest that in case we have clans also present on this ladder fighting in the other league we report the clan games on both ladders. Maybe this way we could get clans revived a bit here as well.

Right, but the community is small enough to have this option, any fake or abusive reports will be picked up and dealt with.

Don't be so hasty, i will reset monday morning - after the CCC. Right now players can get familiar with the system and test reports and clan creation.

Just to give you a heads up, I think this thread falls under the "advertising another site" rule.  I won't lock or move this thread, but it's very possible that another admin will.

On another note, how does your clan ladder prevent the same 3 people from playing each and every event?  Maybe clans should be 5 members max, so as not to mislead everyone into thinking a particular clan is uber when in fact it is just the same 3 people that are really good.

What do you mean events? Players challenge other clans in the lobby, or host a clan game.
