[2v2 Ladder] How Many Teams?

Postby Ace Rimmer » Wed Jan 28, 2009 8:55 pm

So, the lot of you can't be satisfied. Here's your chance to make a change. Answer the above poll and then post your answer. This way I can actually count the number of participating players votes. That is, if you don't post, you didn't vote. :wink:

Votes as I count them:

Two
  1. Blackbeard
  2. shak
Three
  1. Nightwatch
  2. sfericz
Four
  1. Ace Rimmer
  2. (MOR)
  3. MVPE
  4. VICIOUS

I voted three teams.
It should be a team-contest, not a player vs player thing.

But with four teams it might be kinda hard to get the right people together.
I don`t like waiting for hours until someone shows up.

We asked the change when Teams were unbalanced, but now I think all seems good..

So I vote for "No Change"

If the vote goes to two teams, then what I will do is break the two teams into two skill levels:

Team A: Major League/Minor League
Team B: Major League/Minor League

Team A Major vs Minor Team B
Team A Major vs Major Team B
Team A Minor vs Major Team B
Team A Minor and Major vs Major Team B
Team A Minor and Major vs Minor Team B

(any combination of A vs any combination of B, but not A vs A or B vs B)

The above would all be acceptable games, there would be no Team A Major vs Minor Team A. Perhaps at the end of the season the top two Major 2-man Teams vs one another and same for Minor. This would be sort of a pseudo championship, the winner receiving the Grand Prize.

Whoops, I didn't actually think you would listen :? .
I voted two Teams, because at my most pessimistic, I have a real sense that even with three, there's no really good reason to believe there will be more activity than last season.
...and two teams haven't been tried before, have they? (but then again, I'm not the world's most logical thinker, so there might be very good reasons for three or four teams :? ).

I listen to all suggestions/complaints. Whether or not I act on them is a different matter entirely. :P

I dont really have any opinion on what number of teams is better, so i say - we had 3 teams, we saw how it worked - its time to try 4 teams or 2 teams.

How would it be from a statistics point of view? :lol: Would two teams be less interesting?

Exponentially less interesting. :P

I just checked and if we went two teams with Major/Minor leagues, both teams would have seven Major players and ten Minor players.

About a month ago I also suggested 2 teams, because there would be more opportunities for games and we'd see a wider variety of match-ups. However, as I thought about it more, I think a lot of the better players would care less about the team, and more about their personal stats. They'd limit their partnerships to others of similar skill, and stop including the less-experienced... which in the long run is not gonna help this community. Even just generally, people would only partner with people they were comfortable with.

Errr... what is the reason for major/minor leagues? I mean I don't see any :shock: It's the same as just 2 teams.

i voted 2 teams...
it would be very easy to find a game and the skill differences would be not so large.


i will play in every league with anyone in any team.

fun counts.

Shh! It's to discourage players from wanting to go the two team route, because they'll be labeled "minor". Also, cause I think two teams would suck and would try to add something back into the ladder.

Before I vote, Ace, what is the reasoning to not have three teams?

I'm leaning towards three teams. Only because I think more games will be played and there will be a less chance to have an uneven team.
