KOHR-AH CUP - Spring Super-Melee League
« on: April 01, 2007, 11:13:34 am »

Bouyed by the resounding success of the Utwig Urn the time is right for the next league. I present to you the Kohr-Ah Cup! This will surely be a gruelling examination of any admiral's worth.  It will take more than 2 or 3 lucky wins to reach the final of this competition.

Date: Commences 7 April 2007
Time: Saturday 4pm New York time
Place: #uqm-arena at irc://chat.freenode.net

Join us for this historic second ever online Star Control Super-melee league!

Time where you live
Sun 8 am Auckland
Sat 1 pm Los Angeles
Sat 4 pm New York
Sat 9 pm London
Sat 10 pm Paris
Sat 11 pm Helsinki

League structure/rules
  • 'Round Robin' regular season - everyone plays everyone else once)
  • Semi finals and final
  • 2 points win, 1 point tie, 0 points loss
  • Scores recorded - (points left after melee) e.g. 30-0 if you're left with a Kohr-Ah
  • Not showing up for game = default loss by 150-0
  • Standings and results will be updated after each round and posted on this thread and UQM-arena
  • If at the end of regular season players are tied on competiton points, play-off placings will be decided by points For and Against.
  • The leageu will run for no more than 6 weeks, not necesarily consecutive

Schedule (all EST)
7 Apr 16.00
14 Apr 16.00 - update: even though the league has started we're still accepting entrants on this date
21 Apr 16.00
5 May 16.00
12 May 16.00


Game rules
  • Maximum 200 pts per fleet
  • Maximum one of each ship type per fleet (no duplicates)
  • Maximum 40 minutes per melee - Timed out games result in both players receiving a loss (an effort to nulify boring stalemates)
  • You must have your team set up before melee - this prevents you adjusting your line-up to counter your opponents team!

As always everyone welcome

I would be so happy to join, but alas, I can not due to the unsuitable time. I'll have to pass.

Well, time for another reminder. As above, the league will resume this coming Saturday (4pm NY time, 10pm Paris time). Even though we’re a couple of games into it you can still play if you’re not already – you will just have a bit of catching up to do over the next few weeks.

Hopefully I'll see some of  you at  #uqm-arena!

Always keen to have new folks along. You are pushing it to join the league but if you can be on the start line at 4pm New York time Saturday afternoon you can enter - you will just have a few games to catch up.  The following week the league will take a break while I hold another knockout tournament.

EDIT: Oh I guess I better tell you where to go! There is an IRC Freenode Channel called#uqm-arena. That is where the action takes place. I go via Chatzilla, but you can also just go here: http://irc.uqm.stack.nl

AAAHHHHHH!!!!!!  I can't believe that I missed this one!  My wife had a baby and that took me out of the action for a little while!  Damn kids!  :  )

Anyway, now I'm in the same boat as PurpleBridge.  I'd love to be able to catch up, especially with some time until the next play date, but not sure how.  Would I be able to catch up before the next date?  Is that "legal"?  Does anyone in the league currently even have time to play me before the next date?  If so, please let me know.  I'd very much appreciate it!

I don’t mind if you two get going on Saturday, but of course both of you guys plus Shiver are encouraged to make up games midweek if the opportunity arises. You would have to remember the score and report it to me on Saturday – or send me a forum message. I would imagine if you ‘frequent’ #uqm-arena you’ll run into someone in the league before then.

The best time would be the day before – same time (Friday pm for most of you). Usually the same guys are there then, including me.

Oh, congratulations by the way! (assuming you're the father...)

Indeed.  Sad

I should be able to get into UQM-Arena on Thursday but I dunno if any of the other contestants will be around.

If folks are around Thursday or Friday, that's all good. If not, It will have to be Saturday. As long as everyone has at least three games under their belt by the end of Saturdays melees, I'm happy.
