Pick-up championship

Post by Longhair » Wed Jun 14, 2006 1:50 pm

Here's an incomplete thought that's been bouncing around in my little head:

I notice that there are a number of league members that aren't attached to a team, but still log in to the website, and seem to keep abreast of what's going on. How about we do a championship thing sort of like 1vs1 does every once in a while. Instead of using the existing teams, we figure out some way to either randomly or purposefully assign people who want to be involved (not mandatory) to a set of teams. Have the teams battle it out, and we have a winner after a few weeks.

The thing I like about it is that some of the people who are still unattached get a chance to play on a team, even if only for a brief time, and the rest of us get to play with people we wouldn't normally play with. I'm hoping that once we get people mixed together a bit, they'll feel less shy about forming a team. Perhaps some of the pick up teams would end up as regular teams as a result.

The downside, of course, is getting this all organized. I'd propose something like getting a list of interested people, assigning teams, and giving a time period for the teams to play a set amount of games. The team with the most points (earned from winning a match, like 1vs1 does it) in each group moves on to the semi-finals.

This is also something that could be a stand-alone event, not necessarily tied directly to the league.

Longhair - You and I need to talk. IRC or AIM. But I need to get with you fast.

Uh Oh sounds like TRB has been scheming up things!!! Look out!

I think it sounds like a fun idea. I think random drawing of teams would be interesting. Depending on how many sign up though you might want to do 3 on 3 matches, that could help minimize effects of some of the better players getting drawn on the same team.

It would also demand other skills than just the technical skills of dodging and shooting, team building skills for example - I think it's a great idea, and I think it will improve the league.
Tank you!
