PRECURSOR PRIZE - Summer SuperMelee League
« on: July 01, 2007, 10:27:17 pm »

Yep brand new league starting this coming Saturday 7 July! This is the Precursor Prize. Remember, leagues happen over a period of several weeks so a fair degree of commitment is required n order to avoid defaulting melees. So I suggest booking out whatever part of Saturday you need on the below dates so you can enter this. The super-funness with make it worth while. There will be 3 melees per session – so that means about two hours of your Saturday.

This league is totally to open to everyone – old and new. If we get enough participants the league will be split of into two sections: Superheroes and the un-proven. So rookies will be well catered for.


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

Join us for this historic third ever online Star Control Super-melee league! Of course you will need the latest version of UQM - 0.6.2.

Time where you live
Sun 6 am Sydney
Sun 8 am Kawerau
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
1) 'Round Robin' regular season - everyone plays everyone else once)
2) Semi finals and final
3) 2 points win, 1 point tie, 0 points loss
4) Scores recorded - (points left after melee) e.g. 30-0 if you're left with a Kohr-Ah
5) Not showing up for game = default loss by 150-0
6) Standings and results will be updated after each round and posted on this thread and UQM-arena
7) If at the end of regular season players are tied on competition points, play-off placings will be decided by points For and Against.
8 ) The league will run for no more than 6 weeks, not necessarily consecutive

Schedule (all EST) (details added once entries are in).
7 July 16.00
14 July 16.00
28 July 16.00
4 August 16.00
11 August 16.00

{KO tournament to be held on 21 July}

Remember, to enter, you need only to show up at #uqm-arena 4pm NY time on 7 July.


Game rules
1) Maximum 200 pts per fleet
2) Maximum one of each ship type per fleet (no duplicates)
3) Maximum 40 minutes per melee - Timed out games result in both players receiving a loss (an effort to nullify boring stalemates)
4) You must have your team set up before melee - this prevents you adjusting your line-up to counter your opponents team!
5) Thraddash totally allowed
6) Organiser’s decision final on all matters and can override rules 1 to 5  Smiley

It is not a rule, but you are highly encouraged to capture your melees with VidShot or similar application if you are able. This may help you in case of dispute. Otherwise you risk the tournament administrator making an arbitrary decision with the sole purpose of getting on with it.


As always everyone welcome

Sounds like fun, but I’m afraid I can’t commit to this sort of thing now that the weather’s nice ‘n’ warm up here in the northern hemisphere. Too many distractions to keep me away from the computer on the weekends.

(I suppose that kinda unfair for you, Cedric, since I imagine its getting rather chilly down your way.)

Yeah I know, we will see how it goes though. Maybe the many hundreds of closet SC fans from NZ, Australia, South Africa and Argentina will come out of the woodwork.

It's a lowly 11 degC right now + a LOT of rain. How hot is it up north? let's make this thread a "how hot is it where you are" thread!

Aw damn it, we didn't get enough players to have a separate rookie league. You clowns need to show up if you want to stop getting steamrolled by the same three people.

Breaking News! league update

A good start to the league with 7 entrants so far.  As you can see we've kicked off with a few upsets. Cedric6014 beat Elerium for the first time in 3 attempts and Galactus overcame Shiver. Due to "technical difficulties, Elerium and Elvish's melee was abandoned.

Results from Saturday's melees:
Cedric6014 b Critta, 94 pts remaining
Shiver b Amiga_Nut, 69
Elerium & Elvish_Pillager, abandoned
Galactus b Critta, 48
Cedric6014 b Amiga_Nut, 65
Cedric6014 b Elerium, 88
Galactus b Shiver, 58
Elvish_Pillager b Critta, 78


Standings so far:

                        P     W   T/A     L      F    A      Pts    Diff
Cedric6014        3      3      0      0    247     0      6     247
Galactus           2      2      0      0    106     0      4      106
Elvish_Pillager   2      1      1      0     78      0      3      78
Shiver               2      1      0      1      69    58     2      11
Elerium             2      0     1       1       0     88     1     -88
Amiga_Nut        2      0      0      2       0   134     0    -134
Critta                3      0      0      3       0   220     0    -220

It's not too late to enter if you're interested. Come along next Saturday 4pm NY time (10pm Paris) and join the carnage!

EDIT: corrected as per Galactus's post below

Cedric,

Small correction.  I actually beat Critta by 48 pts, not the other way around.  So, my standing should read as follows....

Galactus  P:2, W:2, T/A:0, L:0, F:116, A:0, Pts:4, Diff: 116

Obviously, that affects Critta's standing as well, which would be adjusted to....

Critta  P:3, W:0, T/A:0, L:3, F:0, A:120, Pts:0, Diff:-120

I think that the confusion was in the fact that he reported the score as being 48-0, which suggested that he won.  He should have said 0-48.

Thanks!  And I'm looking forward to next Saturday!
