RLG StarCraft 2 League

90 posts in this topic

[b]RLG Starcraft League[/b]

Hi all here are the rules and fixtures for the SC2 league.

Rules:

Scheduling:

- Every week I will post a fixture list in a new thread. The fixture list will contain all the games you are expected to play in the week (2 per week, minus those weeks you are playing a "bye", due to uneven numbers).
- It will be down to you and your opponent to decide what time is best for you during the week to play.
- PM me or e-mail me the date and time of your games. I will add them to a google calendar (below).
- If you expect to be late for a scheduled game, e-mail me and your opponent.
- If you don't let your opponent know that you will be late and are more than an hour late for a game, you will automatically forfeit the match.
- If you're unable to schedule a game in the week it is assigned, you have 2 weeks to "catch up". Please be gentlemanly with this - if you are unable to play and the other player is available, please "own up" and forfeit the match.
- If your schedule is crazy or something, we can bend the above rule so that you can have a bit more time to play. It is at my discretion whether we do or not though.

I've put these "time bound" fixtures in so that we can keep the games moving without too much disruption.

Games:

- Each game will be a best of 3
- The first map will be Xel'Naga Caverns.
- The second map will be loser's choice.
- The third map will be loser's choice.
- Disconnections will be decided between the players as to whether they will forfeit or re-match.

The map pool is restricted to current ladder maps.

Special Rules:

Any disagreements or problems: I will be the final decision maker.

General Note:

I have put the above rules as [b]guidelines[/b] - if there are any problems with the schedule or attending games, let me know and we will sort something out!
Also, we had the best turn out in the cup games for spectating etc on Sundays.
Don't forget the RLLMUK chat channel on starcraft2 - we can use that for spectators etc. :)

Week 1 Fixtures:

The games start on Monday.

Let me know if I've got your race right!

Rest of the fixtures below (Rename the file to .xls). I've highlighted the games that potentially cannot be played due to holidays.

Google Calendar (I will update as you PM me your scheduled games):

If you want to use this thread to start scheduling games or raise any points you feel I may have missed with the above rules let me know. If you are all happy with the games, you can start scheduling

Most of all - have fun! :)

I would like to suggest that there is an "open" period from around 7 Sunday evenings where people can organise their games and it should be expected others are playing too and we can all fit around each other.

In other previous RLG leagues we mostly played at these times and had a lot of fun watching each other's games, it would be good if that could happen again.

I am happy to play my games with Headache and Mr Cochese during this period on Sunday - please let me know guys if this time is not suitable.

Oh god, my first game is against Carrot? It's like Burton Albion getting Chelsea in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. :(

Ravnaz - I know you're on holiday - when do you have time to play this week? I am basically happy to do any time past 7pm.
Snowbind - let me know when you're free to play as well :)

Chelsea can't beat a DT rush.

Is it ok if we make up WWE style stories as we go? I was thinking something like I'd be out for revenge against Headache after he betrayed me with a stepladder in a tagteam match.

Also, I expect to be hilariously awful this season. My latest tactic is to get drunk before playing and then drone and drone so hard you won't believe, but without actually spending the income on much.

Could we use the MLG/ESL versions of the ladder maps? Nobody likes close ground except terran. ;)

I don't see a problem with that if your opponent agrees to play them.

ARe we allowed to choose custom maps? I'm pretty good at Auir Chef.

I hear the infinite money maps are pretty awesome.

I will be on and in the rllmuk channel from about 7 this evening if Mr Cochese or Headache want to play our games tonight, and I want to spectate the others if possible.

So please remember to use the rllmuk channel guys :)

I've not played a single game since the last rllmuk open, I expect to be terribly, terribly bad. Still as long as I can get a cheeky groin shot in on Cochese as he goes to pin me, my WWE narrative will be satisfied!

I have the reps saved - do you want me to upload them? (I didn't want to butt in if you wanted to write something about the games yourselves + upload). If so I'll upload them for you all when I get home tonight. I'll put all the games in a pack at the end of the week as well.

The games are really worth watching.
