@NugeTV @ImJeff @F5 Penguin @Tris10 I'm not sure who or if anyone is on the committee anymore but I tagged people I knew are good with numbers. I also didn't know if any of the numbers changed (Site's fee, etc) but think I found a good break down. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So this is not a detail on every rule and all structure, just a main foundation for rosters vs payouts and tier ideas. I think most of the structure worked well with what you had (season play, playoffs, etc.) First, there should be a committee of at least 5 (IMO) or more but of an odd number to prevent tie voting. This is Nuge's to actually decide. The idea can be built off of or tweaked but I feel all of this will work best for getting more teams involved and help it grow. So setting up the first season under the new format is obviously going to be a little different but once you get past that everything is by the system. Tier 1 = $100 team buy in Tier 2 = $80 team buy in Roster Sizes can be 8-12 players with buy in divided up (whatever way you choose) *Note: I've been around these things and clubs since '09 and most top teams function best between this roster size depending on the club. Rosters are still locked once its submitted and replacement players buy in @ $10 (as before) Now...to sweeten the interest. Below is a chart I made based on teams and # of players. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10QApGDVf9jyxHmECvIcg-TkjqVqu4Oyes3prFhVVSlU/pubhtml Number of games are dictated by how many teams join each tier. It is set at 2 per team but teams dont have to play each team twice, that never works. I think what ever way it was set before (as long as there is a max set it should be good. The more teams that join the more teams that get a pay out. The first page shows a big brake down but I took the $80 bracket (second tab) and broke out the “prime” place to be IMO. The $100 bracket can be done the same way. You basically need to get to 32 teams for the 5th place to get a pay out. How its to be set up... Once the teams post their rosters in the thread the committee will pick all the teams they feel can compete in the top tier. At the time the committee is unsure or gets to questionable rosters, ALL team members on the selected top tier teams will vote. These teams will vote on all the teams currently on the list. This can continue until all teams are broke into the 2 tiers. Once the first season has started any new team must start in tier 2 Any team finishing top 4 in tier 2 gets promoted to tier one automatically All tier 1 teams return to tier 1, a returning team is defined by a team which has 5 or more of the same players from the previous tournament. Tier 1 teams can vote a returning team out (vote by all players) if they do not feel they can compete at that level but can not vote out a Tier 2 team advancing until after one complete tournament at tier 1. I think this would really give a bracket to more teams to have something to work for, get better and eventually grow both brackets by making teams mature in skill. I think I covered all my concepts here but if something is missing I'll answer questions on voids if there are some or explain what I mean if you don't quite understand something.
