**You must post in this thread or PM me to be a part of Season 3**
Sign-ups are still open for Season III, which has started May 1st, 2009. With that said, if you want to flex your muscle, improve your overall skill, or just have a grand old time against real challengers, then post below. Stats will be kept for Season III and sfcon2v2.com has real time rankings (assuming you remember to /setscore ~ /signscore).
Season III is an open 1v1 ladder. A pseudo "king of the hill" with a few rules to allow you to play anybody around while keeping players from stat padding and playing against only a select few. Those with ratings from the 2v2 will continue in that rating. The exact rules have not been decided upon and the Season will most likely not be 12 weeks as before (shorter).
Rules: Not Finalized
Code: Select all
Win: 1 1.5
Loss: -1 -1
There will be no enforced schedule between players. Please use the challenge thread or wait on the prematch server for an opponent. You may schedule games privately (pm, email, IRC, etc), but those are player enforced and no penalty will be given for not showing up.
You may play any other registered player at any time any number of times with the following *conditions:
- You must play 65% of the active field at least twice. This should allow enough flexibility for those in out of sync timezones (e.g. Aust, NZ). Example, if 30 players sign up, you'd need to eventually play 19 of them, assuming all 30 are actively participating.
- You can not exceed playing twice the average of normal vs. against any single player. Example, if (MOR) plays each person in the field an average of 10 times, (MOR) vs White Rabbit 21 times would not be allowed. This rule is to prevent false stat/rating inflation.
*These are placeholder conditions for now, will probably be revised once input is received (from you) and the stat sheet is configured for 1v1 (which means I can test the data).
Pause is allowed. Please use with discretion. Since you are playing with a partner, pausing at the start should not be done for "planning" purposes. Pausing should be reserved for players reconnecting or small unavoidable interruptions/emergencies. Where possible, please give a public request before pausing.
Drops before Defcon 3 require a restart except where the player that dropped is fine with continuing. Continuing the game where drops occur after Defcon 3 are up to the remaining player. Please make sure your connection is stable. Please use good sportsmanship.
Please use "/include noscore" (if sfericz has it programmed??) for games that are started and then voided. This way ranks are not affected.
Using an Alias
As of Monday, May 4th, 7:00 pm GMT, the use of an Alias is not allowed. You must use the name you registered under or a known in-game name. For example, home in alaska is known in-game as Edward, ynbniar as Domino. Random aliases and other players names are off-limits. There is no reason to hide your identity. There are non ladder servers for that.
