League army rules?

Post  nathanr on Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:33 pm

I'd like everyone's input on a few questions:

The last few leagues it's seemed that people wanted to have the flexibility to try out new armies so we removed the requirement to play with the army that you signed up with for league games. Is everyone liking that or should we go back to how it was before where league games had to be played with the army you sign up with?

The last few leagues we've still had players sign up by specifying the army they would be using for the playoffs. Should we do away with this? There would still be a rule that players must use the same army list throughout the playoffs but what army you would be using would be a surprise for the first round of the playoffs. There is some merit to this but again, I'd like some feedback.

This all stems from the issue that people may be buying and/or selling armies over the course of the league so an army that Sean* signed up with 3-4 months ago might not be available by the time the league ends.

*names may or may not have been changed to protect the innocent.

You could also have players publicly declare their playoff race before submitting a list, so it's similar to now but more flexible. You could also put a minimum games requirement out there too (at least 3 games with that army?).

I have no issues with that sort of a change.

Protect the innoncent my arse Wink haha. Its not my fault that i have army A.D.D. i just want ALL OF THEM! it was a bold move on my part to say i was keeping DoC and signing up with them before i even had a game haha. I agree with maybe atleast 3 games with the army or something. i think with our group we are more concerned about the opponenet and not the army. honestly ill play anything regardless of what they had signed up with. even those crazy broken TK armies floating around Wink. Plus it rly only matters for people who are gonna make it to the playoffs and who knows who that will be by the end of Feb. Just that DoC is on the chopping block because im having fun with Empire and wana grab dwarfies. ill want a DoC army one day but itll be Slannesh so mine as well sell the Khorne while i can.

I say leave it open for league gaming in the entirety but restrict playoffs to one army publicly declared and one list through the playoffs

Ok, when should playoff armies be declared? I'm concerned with the following scenario:

Person 1: I'm bringing army A
Person 2: then I'm bringing army B

Or even worse:

Person 1: oh, then I'm going to bring army C etc.

Everyone in the finals PMs whoever is organizing the playoffs (or they allocate a neutral player if they're in the playoffs). Once everyone has submitted, then the list is posted and everyone gets to make their army lists.

I thought the army you signed up with was what you had to bring to playoffs?

Top two on the ladder, top two in average points per game and top 1 in points.

The first two on the ladder are easy to identify. The two with the best average should be as well but in the unlikely event of a tie, the player with more games played will get the spot. Player with the most points is the person with the most points who doesn't have one of the other 4 spots. In the event of a tie, I'll pick the player who has the better average between the two. In the unlikely event that there is still a tie, I'll look at games played between those players and a tiebreaker game might be required.

What happens if someone is top 2 average and top 2 ladder (or top total points). Which spot should the next person make it in from?

If you take the standings right now Dom and I are in playoffs being spot 1 and 2 Brent and Clark are in for best two averages. Exclude the four of us and the highest pts total would be sean.(although Justin is sneaking up behind also)

But let's suppose I wildcard challenge Dom in our game today and win, taking a ladder spot as well as an average spot (and suppose I maintain it until the end of the season). Does ladder #3 or average #3 fill in? Or is there a wildcard playoff between them to make the actual playoffs?

The order of selection is as follows:

1. Top 2 ladder
2. Top 2 averages who are not in the top 2 ladder spots
3. Top points who is not one of the other 4
