this seems a tad convoluted, could we simplify and clarify what the teams are? :roll:

1) Thank you Ace for setting this up and dealing with all of our bitching! 2) I am good with what ever you decide (hehe, does it sound like i'm sucking up?).

If the teams are deemed to be unbalanced why not give handicaps to compensate? the team that is most overpowered gets 0 points to start the tournament, one team gets 5 points, and team with the worst chances gets 10. Not sure about the exact number of points to add, but something like that.

Teams

Postby Shai Hulud » Sun Oct 05, 2008 6:12 am

If it does not cause any problems - i would like to request a transfer to team C - simply because i don't know/haven't played with the majority of the players on Team A.
This suggests to me that i am in a significantly different timezone than these players, which could make organizing matches difficult.......
Also, regarding tsar's suggestion of handicaps to teams - sounds like it would further complicate the scoring, without any guarantee of making the tournament fairer.
Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.

Ok, the whole point of having teams of six is to get games played. Fixed/static teams = no ladder/tourney because almost nobody will schedule games.

Now, with six players, you can sill have pseudo static teams within the team if you wish so you've got nothing to complain about there. :wink:. Also, this is a "team" ladder, so why worry if the other player can defeat the other team for all by himself? You still get the credit. :P Seriously though, part of the reason for ladders is to help others improve their ability so that you can't keep defeating them so easily. :wink:

The point is no ladder, no tourney, no set up will make everybody happy or be perfect. There will never ever be "balanced" teams no matter how you slice it if you want games to get played (and what's a ladder with zero games?). We have a very small player base to pull from and a large time zone difference. Flexible six man teams give everybody a better chance to play. Static teams reduce number of games played and ultimately keep the ladder from making progress.

With, Shai, Wu.j, Krunk and Tron, on team C, that will balance things out. You'll have to move some other players, tho...preferably not me. :lol:

i am cool with whatever team i am placed on...the time zone should be considered also for a team, i have no worries about my team mates and i look forward to the challange i just would like it to be all layed out and clear what is what..... i'd prefer to ally with known players to me, but if it doesn't happen it's not the end of the world (or is it?)
