2011 TripleAWarClub V4 (Spring 42) Provisional (Draft) League Rules.
1 - Anyone can join at anytime. All that is required is that you be registered here (at TripleA War Club). Then start finding games and posting results!
2 - You may play anyone in the league, but only a max of 6 games per opponent will count in the standings.
3 - You must play at least 10 games against 5 different opponents to be eligible for the playoffs. If there is a lot of activity in the league, then the minimum may be bumped to 15 games.
4 - Game & rule default – V4, dice. Low luck is allowed if both players agree. TripleA is the default software, but other map programs can be used if both players agree. Optional rules are allowed if both players agree.
4a – Victory Cities (VC) – If one side reaches 9 Vcs at the end of the USA turn, then that side is declared the winner. Otherwise, the game continues until someone concedes.
4b - Bidding – To ensure sides are determined fairly, we will use bidding. You will be bidding for the Axis. Bidding will be done auction style. Example
I bid 5 for Axis; I bid 4 for Axis
I bid 2 for Axis: I bid 0 for Axis
I bid -2 for Axis; Yours
If the bid is negative, then it is effectively an Allied bid, and the Allied player chooses which power receives the bid.
For PBEM games, bidding should be done by PM or email prior to the game start.
5 – Time Limits-- for PBEM games, a minimum of 2 moves per week are required. However, we ask that you complete at least 4 moves per week as a courtesy to your opponent. For PBEM games, if a turn is not received within 1 week of either the previous turn post or the end of a predetermined "pause" or break period, then the player failing to post may be declared in default and lose the game.
6 - You must have completed a game within 60 days (by Oct. 1) of the end of the season to be eligible to win or advance to the playoffs.
7 - Players are responsible to post results (in result thread). Post winner and loser.
8-PBEM Rules. We will be using the same rules to govern PBEM games as in the 41/42 Ladder. They will be posted in the next post of this thread.
9a - The Regular Season will end on Dec. 1 and the standings will then be posted. Games must be completed prior to this date in order to be counted for the 2011 season.
9b - Any games in progress that are completed after this date will be eligible to count for the next league (2012) assuming league rules remain the same or are similar.
9c – 2011 Playoffs begin Dec. 2. The playoff will be a 4 person single elimination playoff. The 4 players with the highest win % that have completed at least 12 games will qualify for the play-off.
10 - Scoring/Playoffs
The top four players, with the best winning percentages (Must complete at least 12 games) will advance to the playoffs.
If there is a tie between any players then the tie will be broken by:
1 - head to head play
2 - Total wins
3 – strength of schedule – Player Z’s opponents winning percentage was 80%, Player A’s opponents winning percentage was 20%. Player Z advances.
Edits. Edits are allowed at the discretion of one's opponent. For more on what kind of edits should be allowed, please refer to the guidelines in the post below.
Arbitration. For conflict arbitration, pm a moderator, and we will do our best to assist you. If a conflict warrants it, a panel of 3 arbitrators will be appointed by the moderation team to adjudicate a dispute.
When TripleA War Club develops a ladder or official ratings system for Spring 42 (v4), we hope to integrate the results of league games into the ladder database.
