    TWDT Spring 2017 Announcement





    TWDT 2017 Spring Season

    Trench Wars Draft Tournament is starting on Sunday, 16th April. The league will be planned so that we are finished by early June to avoid pushing the league to continue during summer. The signups are open immediately and the draft will take place on Sunday, 9th April.

    Signups:

    1) Forums, replying to the Signup thread here.
    2) In-game, leave ?message to Henry Saari, Geio or vys.
    3) In-game, messaging !signup to TWDTBOT (preferred method)

    Timeslots

    Will be kept the same as previously:

    TWDTD 3pm
    TWDTD 3:30pm
    TWDTJ 4pm
    TWDTJ 4:30pm
    TWDTB 5pm
    TWDTB 5:30pm

    Format

    During this TWDT you will face every squad twice in every league before the play-offs begin. Your regular season points will determine whether you enter or miss play-offs in certain league. Assuming we will have 6 squads, the bottom 2 of each league will drop out after regular season and number one of each league will receive a bye to finals. To determine the other contender for finals the three remaining squads will face each other in semi-finals where the winning squad of a game proceeds to face the next one and the loser is out. This will be done with the following format: number 2 of regular season vs number 4 winner of previous game vs number 3.

    With 8 squads the format of the regular season is similar however once the play-offs begin 6 squads will make the play-offs for each league. Number one from regular season still gets a bye to finals but for the remaining 5 there will be a set of games, the 2nd place plays vs 5th, 3rd plays vs 4th and then the winners of these games will decide the other finalist to face the number one from regular season.

    Here's the play-offs explained as a picture:

    During regular season the games are best of 1 round in warbird and javelin and for base a race to 15 minutes. For play-offs warbird and javelin will have best of three rounds format and for base a race to 20 minutes.

    Each team is required to play a 7-Star or lower, and a 6-Star or lower, player in each game (2 slots) in TWDT-D and TWDT-J.

    For TWDT-B, the number of low-star players in each game (3 slots), require two 7-Star or lower, and a 6-star or lower, in each game.


    Timetable for 6 squad league:

    April 22 First round
    April 29 Second round
    May 6 Third round
    May 13 play-offs
    May 20 finals

    Captains

    We will be asking the previous TWDT captains to continue their duties and hopefully they will but may also include new fresh faces. We will be naming the captains within the next week or sooner.

This will be done with the following format: number 2 of regular season vs number 4 winner of previous game vs number 3.
    What is the logic behind this? Shouldn't it be 3 seed vs 4 seed first and then the winner of that match would face 2nd seed?

    Now this format makes a lot more sense, even though I dont agree with the bronze game. 1) I think thats pretty much waste of time 2) I would give a high percentage for it being a complete failure (other team not showing)

    However, this is compeletely different to what is stated in the first post:

    The bottom 2 of each league will drop out after regular season and number one of each league will receive a bye to finals. To determine the other contender for finals the three remaining squads will face each other in semi-finals where the winning squad of a game proceeds to face the next one and the loser is out. This will be done with the following format: number 2 of regular season vs number 4 winner of previous game vs number 3.

    The reason why it's been done is to give a twist to the end of regular season. We've had a lot of new players who have signed up, some of whom might not get a look in in some games. This added twist gives a chance for everyone to get involved and it's something different. Rather than playing the same old arenas day in, day out.
    The games will still be played with the draft team. Anything is better than a bye week, surely?

    It was my idea to do this event, but I also had the idea of an All-star weekend too. Feedback and ideas are great, as we are still within the sign up process.

    I like the idea Vys sounds like fun, dunno if it should count towards the result of the 3 different competitions though. Maybe keep it separate and have an extra bit for the team who wins overall in the arena along with TD, TJ and TB such as TE?

    We can look into it. I just think everyone is stuck to twd, wbduel and javduel, we've kind of forgotten about these other events. I just want a big showing to this event. Maybe we can think of a different reward. What about pub Bux to the winning team? This being rewarded to the whole twdt roster and names within A1

    Glad someone stepping up to run it, sign me up.

    Looks good so far, the only thing I would say is:

    Once the regular season is over the squads will have one final chance to make the play-offs during a special round hosted on May 6th. During this special day we will play the following team based events where you are expected to show with your DT squad:
    I could see this creating way more problems than it solves, and being insanely controversial and ruining the season. I would probably drop this idea. A team playing a full season, making the playoffs, then getting eliminated and losing their spot in a DM event would kill all the goodwill/momentum for the league.

    Hello all. After receiving feedback and re-checking up coming holidays, we have decided to drop special round and begin TWDT on Sunday April 22nd. Draft will take place on same date as announced before.

    Easter is on the previous weekend (16th) so this way we are ensuring most of you can show up without problems related to that holiday weekend.

    I will fix the format a bit. Two squads drop out after reg season, 4 go to playoffs. 1st seed vs 4th, 2nd vs 3rd. Winners go to finals, losers to right over 3rd place. (Will edit the post above soon too).

    I'm looking at doing rewards for top 3 placed teams to each player who has played at least 1 match on their team. This will be pubbux BTW

    I feel like the season needs to be longer. Three weeks is a very short regular season. I know this has been the traditional way but I think we need to think about the health of the zone. We all know that the zone dies when there is no league going on. Considering how long it took for this league to get started, I think it'd be in the best interest of everyone to have a 6 week regular season. This would have each team play each other twice and also allow more time for people who have returned to sign up for FA. I'm currently running the eg league and our regular season is 7 weeks long and makes for a better experience. Also, we have a preseason week on top of that whereas there is none here. This league will be here and gone in a blink of an eye if it is so short.
