TD 1v1 League

Post by maceman » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:21 pm

Hey all, I'm thinking of trying a 1v1 league for TD in OpenRA.

Nothing overly serious at the moment - no prize money or anything, just a bit of fun.

I think the format should be similar to RAGL in that each week you have to arrange a match with another player in the league according to the match list - which can be played at any time agreed by both players or delayed if needed. 2 matches - 1 map choice each.

I just want to see the interest first though, although if at least 8 people are up for it, I'll get it going. If you are interested, let me know and I'll add your name to the list.

Just post on this thread or message me on discord (@maceman or @unano).

Ok, so more than enough people are interested so I thought it's worth getting a draft plan in order.

Assuming everyone who is interested decides to play, thats 15 players, so I was thinking of splitting into two groups completely at random to make it fair.

That then means that a maximum of 8 games need to be played each. So if it's spread over 9 weeks, that gives everyone a week off too.

At the end of the season, the top 2 players from each group can have a knockout-style playoff tornament to decide who gets first, second, third and fourth overall.

If all goes well and everyone wants to carry on for another season after that, the top half of both groups can be promoted to another devision for next time.

This is mostly just the same as how RAGL works, and it works well, so I'm thinking it should work good for this too.

It's probably also worth using the same delays and strikes system as it keeps things going. For those that don't know - if you fail to organise or play a match one week and it's your fault, you get a strike. Three strikes and you get disqualified from the league. If you can't play for any reason, you can delay a match for up to 3 weeks - you just need to report that you are doing this.

This all sound Ok to everyone? If there is anything I've missed, please say! :)

I was thinking of getting a registration page up somewhere seperate to the forum as a lot of players don't come here, and it should help to keep it all in one place. I'll try and get this done within the next couple of weeks, and if all goes well hopefully it can all get started early in the new year.

Also: Any suggestions on the name of the league / devisions? I mean, we could just keep it simple an steal it all from RAGL, but it might also be nice to have some more TD-like names. :)

I always liked GDave's FRA:GL :p

It sounds like a very similar set up to what I did a couple of years ago, this is the thread if you are interested (http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/view ... 82&t=19374)
I just called it OpenRA: Tiberium Dawn 1v1 League (ORA:TD 1v1). I think I had the intention of the name being modular so I could do ORA:TD 2v2
(I originally named it the "Tiberium Dawn World League" though)

The biggest question I have is the game settings. Light support is sometimes used in TD and I hate light support. Would that be something allowed and or at the matches discretion (similar to how faster was an option in the previous RAGL season) or would it be different?

as for division names we could go the Nod route:

masters-> inner circle
Minions-> commanders
recruits -> acolytes
cadets -> initiates

Or the GDI route:

masters-> Titans
Minions-> Wolverines
recruits -> riflemen
cadets -> civies

I hate light support aswell and I hate most of the current 1v1 maps in the pool (Pirates and Emperors and Two Ponds are the exceptions).

If we really wanna do a TDGL than it needs a circle of experienced people with a well thought out system.

Still though more promotion for TD is always good. I love this game.

Also who is that ZXGannon?
