I, too, would prefer 6 weeks (or so) season with 1-2 week break in between, which is not listed. Chestal is correct on the coding - the current code supports any length of season with arbitrary start & end dates. If simplicity is the goal, you could easily run any season to start on the first of a m...

It's true, it hasn't gotten much play lately, but I have enjoyed the htf matches we played and would love to play more. I'm not sure how much the domain cost him, but if it's not too much, why not? :)

I think this poll is misleading. You ask if we want a "classic style ducati" map, yet from the comments and discussion, it is clear that what you really want to know is whether there is interest in a -20 (acceleration limited) map. I suggest you might consider adjusting your poll question so that it...

I think that the suggestion for seasonal ladder , which are independent of (and in addition to) ELO is a good alternative. I think the initial suggestions of penalizing for inactivity or rewarding activity through modification of ELO have been mostly abandoned for the idea of a seasonal ladder. To t...

Yes, "GPS" was sort of a take-off on that idea. Global Player Search (GPS) is sort of like a global positioning system for finding players.

I have to agree with [dmp]. It is not in the purview of the council to regulate how teams are managed from within. While I, as a team leader, would NEVER presume to tell my team not to match without checking with me first (in fact, quite the opposite - I encourage them to take any match they can fin...

Just to be clear, the proposal is NOT for a 10 cap spread (i.e., win by 10). The proposal is for a total of 10 caps by one team as long as the team has a 2 cap lead.

Well, technically, there is nothing preventing them from forfeiting now. Except that other teams put pressure on them to continue. I've seen teams try to forfeit/quit mid-game and the opposing team has generally been quite insistent about continuing the match. Although the forfeit rule isn't officia...

Seasonal Ladder Demo

Mistake has generously done a mock-up demo of what a Seasonal Ladder might look like if it were incorporated into the existing Ducati League Website. Please take a look, remember it is in demo form only, and provide feedback here.

Thanks mistake for taking the time to do this!

ELO calculation would be simlar to what we have now, but instead of just considering winner/loser, we consider the score difference as well.

I agree, but suggest one modification - 10 cap limit but have to win by 2 caps. That way if the score (however unlikey) is 10-9, it doesn't end with time left on the clock.
