ANNOUNCEMENT: Update for the Legion TD Team League!

Postby KiwiLeKiller » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:16 pm

The Legion TD Team League is taking shape and we are happy to share some news with you. We have 12 teams that are officially registered to compete in the biggest Legion TD event we had so far, which is way more than expected! Organisation enters a final stage before it all takes place, let's get into it.

Discord
Discord text channels were made available to Team's captain to communicate with other teams regarding the exact time the game will be played according to the schedule released. Every captain should have been added to the channels, if it's not the case, please contact a member of the LTL Staff. Here are the channels available :
  • #ltl-news : News will be posted there to reach every team if needed. Team's captains will have to make sure their players are informed of the information shared via this channel.
  • #ltl-chat : Use it to chat about anything, or ask things to the staff.
  • #ltl-games : Its main purpose is to allow captains to plan the exact time their games will be played with other captains. It's also used when it comes to host a game. So we'll ask that only the captains talk in this channel.
Note that there are also 2 voice channels available, which can be used by players to talk while playing to ease communication. To join those voice channels, you must have the LTL Player rank, if it is not the case, contact a member of the LTL Staff so we can add you to the channels.
Important : Captains are encouraged to communicate with someone from LTL Staff and provide us the Discord name (including the #) of your teammates so we can add them to the LTL channels.

Schedule
The schedule is available here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing
Please note that on week #6 (September 4th to September 10th), every team will play 2 matches. The order those matches are played is not important.
Spoiler!
It was made using Challonge Bracket Generator : http://challonge.com/fr/tournaments/bra ... M5Gu8tZerm

Every match must be played on the week it is due. If both teams cannot schedule a time to play the match on their own on the due week, they can play it on the "break-week", which will be the 11th week, otherwise, the match won't be played and no point will be given.

A week goes from Monday to Sunday, with the exception of the first week, which goes from Tuesday 1st of August to Sunday August 6th, and last week, which goes from Monday October 23rd to Tuesday October 31st. Here is what it looks like:

The captain of the winning team will have to report the result on the forum in the thread to this end here. A spreadsheet with the current ranking, made by Broud3r, will be available soon. From August 15th, to October 15th, team's captains can proceed to one single trade or, if the team is composed of 5 players, to draft a player not already playing in the League. When proceeding to a trade, the team captain must report the said trade in the Sign-ups & Trades topic by creating a new post.

Playoffs
The eight (8) teams with the highest amount of points will be qualified to compete in the playoffs. It will take the form of a single elimination, so when a team loses a match, it is eliminated. Matches will still be best-of-three until the Grand Finale, where it will be a best-of-five. Playoffs will occur during weeks 12 and 13.

First Round
Match 1 : Team #1 vs Team #8
Match 2 : Team #4 vs Team #5
Match 3 : Team #2 vs Team #7
Match 4 : Team #3 vs Team #6

Semi-Finale
Match 5 : Winner of Match 1 vs Winner of Match 2
Match 6 : Winner of Match 3 vs Winner of Match 4

Grand-Finale
Match 7 : Winner of Match 5 vs Winner of Match 6

Further details to come.

Rewards
ENT is ready to offer 40$ to the winner team of the Legion TD Team League. However, ENT will double every dollar donated by a LTL player up to a maximum cash prize of 80$ (20$ from players + 20$ doubled from ENT + 40$ from ENT). So if you want to increase the amount of cash to be won, make sure to do a donation to ENT and to notice Staff Department of your donation!

any1 of you thinked about bracket with double elimination? this way teams with lower potential couldnt get a random wins with bo3 only. there are a lot of cybergames tournaments to use this schedule to find the true winner. also its getting more games to all of players and more satisfied to all of observers
p.s. sry for that crap grammar

We did, indeed, think of doing it a double elimination, however, our main constraint here is the time. We decided that for now, the best thing to do is 2 weeks playoffs and during 2 weeks we can hardly do double eliminations.

However we will keep the suggestion in mind when it comes to organizing next season.
