There has been a bit of talk about moving towards a Ladder system. That sounds fine to me. I'll post a bit about what I would implement in a ladder system and hopefully you guys can add some input.

I would still like to have a preseason. I want to use the preseason to help determine which teams will be in which tier. The tiers are Platinum (Upper) and Silver (Lower). I will use the preseason record to place the teams. I'll also use my best judgement if records are tied among certain teams. Please let me know if you would prefer a different method of organizing the tiers.

As for the ladder system here is what I envision:

+If a team wins X number of games, their next match will be against the Rank 1 team, and it will be a title match. (I'm thinking 3 wins in a row will force a title match, but I'm open to suggestions; it's also dependent on the amount of teams we have).

+If the challenger team wins they become the new Rank 1 team, and title holders.

+Title matches work the same way in both tiers.

+If a Silver team defends their title 3 times in a row their next match will be against the lowest ranked Platinum team. If the Silver team wins they'll be promoted to Platinum and the Platinum team will be demoted to Silver.

As always, feel free to add input or contribute your thoughts and ideas. I will be posting a Free Agent player pool soon so people can start looking at who is available for teams.

Also, please message me your team. Paragonn, I know you said you were on DET-, but I don't know whose team that is. Please let me know.

You would win a shot at the tier title (for lack of a better term atm) after winning x amount of games in a row, or by some other formula. Usually the week before you'd have a title shot match against another team and the winner plays the champion the following week and the process just keeps cycling. Lose the title? Well you have to earn the title shot back.

It does hold some merit, keeps you interested really no matter your teams W-L record because it gives you the hope that hey, put a few good matches together and your team might get a shot. Keep improving. Much better than... lose your first 4 matches and not having anything to look forward to.. other than the fun and competition which obviously won't enough for everyone.
This exactly...

Also there doesn't need to be written in stone ways that the ladder works.. it just works. Admin decides who plays who and who gets a title shot.

I've updated the main post with a list of Free Agents. These players are interested, but do not have teams yet. They should try to start forming teams or looking for teams to add them.

I've observed some pick-ups and unless some of these established guys "know" you, it's hard to determine where you fall and what you can contribute. It'd be nice to have a community night at least once a week leading up to the proposed dates where people who are interested in competitive play can come through and play while being observed by some of the established guys, almost like a combine so maybe teams can be formed and put together. Thoughts?
Some players know the strengths and weaknesses of other players in the veteran community. Once HiR gets the teams up (excel or w/e,) if you have any questions about any of the teams, I can go over some of it with you.

I have updated the original post with a link to the Team Rosters. Please check and make sure your team is listed correctly. Please inform me of any errors or items that need to be changed. Thanks for the assistance.

The sooner we get teams solidified the quicker I can organize the ladder and start setting up schedules.

There are a lot of players, some very skilled and others very new, that are still free agents. Look to the player pool in the original post to help fill out your teams or create new teams.

I'm actually so deeply offended that stiffy managed to find a team before me that I'm going to be retiring.

gg FF :/

EDIT: Nvm he didn't, theres still hope.

Question about the league setup... I am curious how the 4v4 is planning to be run.

Are we looking at, for example, 2 rounds of OvD as in how the pickups in ff.pickup seem to be run?

Or 2 simultaneous 2v2 games in the same match (for lack of a better description) where both teams run O and D in the same round?

Yes it will be, like Voss said, 4 O players vs 4 D players for one round then the teams switch. The team with the most capture points wins.

Also, I added some information about the cutoff for full teams and adding subs to your roster.

Any way we can get a list of already established teams/leaders to see what kind of interest we're looking at?

Yes you can. There's a link on the original post. Here's that link again: http://goo.gl/ri65eb. There is also some extra stuff on there that I will continue to update throughout the season

Would the people in the league be more interested in having a 5 match preseason to help determine the initial title holders and ladder rank or would they prefer the current 3 match setup?
