4500pt standard game size
4 month leagues, 10$ entry fee

Players must sign up with an intended army.....which must be used during playoffs. Players are allowed to use any army (ie non league army) during league play but will suffer a -1 point to their score.

8 games played and league dues paid to qualify for playoffs
points are scored using the victory point chart in the 9th age rule book with an additional +1 point per game for a fully painted army (bases included), -1 point scored for using a non league army. A forfeit is considered a 20-0.
any points games allowed....league points modified by 1 per 500pt difference with a maximum of +/- 3 points....example 4000pt game -1 per player, 7000pt game +3 per player.
All games must be reported on a battle report thread
Players are placed randomly in a ladder format. Movement on the ladder is determined by:
- If you win, you move 1 spot up.
playoffs are determined by division A (top two ladder positions), division B (top two in average points per game...excluding the top two ladder positions), Division C (top 2 points...excluding the previous players)
The same army list must be used throughout the playoffs.

playoffs
Round 1
division A  receive the bye first round
division B plays, division C plays
Round 2
division A plays
winner of B and C play
Round 3
winner of A plays winner of B and C game for title.
winner of the playoffs becomes the league champion, league entry fees are split between first and second with a 70-30 split.

There might be a slight typo in the playoff position explanation. You’ve got division A (top 2 ladder positions), division B (top two average points per game, excluding top two point leaders), and division C (top two point leaders, excluding the previous players).

Should Division B read “excluding top two ladder positions” instead of top two point leaders?

Just figured we should define everything now instead of argue about it when playoffs arrive in 3 months.

good call, missed that completely.

edit: should be right now, unless I'm cross-eyed.

Don and Josh's recent game raises an interesting dilemma for ladder movement.

Here's the situation:

The bottom of the ladder looks like this:

9. Josh
10. Andre
11. Don

Don plays Josh and wins. Ladder rules say Josh moves down 1 spot, Don moves up one spot. That would put both in spot 10 which is where Andre is currently. Do I move Don up to spot 9 and Josh down to spot 11 and leave Andre where he is? Or do I bump Andre down to 11 through no fault of his own and put Don in 9 and Josh in 10? Any way you cut it someone is either moving more spots than they should or not moving at all. I think the most fair solution is for the ladder to end up like this:

9. Don
10. Andre
11. Josh

Don and Josh both effectively move 2 spots but Don beat Josh so them moving makes sense. Andre, having not played doesn't move.

Highest points or average or most wins breaks ladder ties?

I think the solution to this would be setting the rule more like...
If you wi you move up one spot, if you lose you o ly move down if you lose 20-0

What if Don had beat Josh 20-0 though?

This is why I don’t like ladders.  They are nearly impossible to automate in excel and nobody understands how they work, even the people who think them up.

I’m going with the solution above.  In my mind Don was supposed to move up a spot (above Andre) and Josh was supposed to move down a spot (below Andre).  Success!

I think the loser would move spots first, but yes the leader stem is strange

I've edited the league rules slightly, for the bonus/penalty for different size games I put a cap on the bonus/penalty points to +/-3.

Also, in what order should the bonus/penalty points be applied? If I get beat 18-2 in a 2500 point game (so -3), but was fully painted should the score be 15-0 (18-2 +1 -3) or 15-1 (18-2 -3 +1)?
