Season 4 Proposal
I would like to suggest that we start using the OSL's ladder and tournament system to give the tournament a little more structure to it to support more players and teams.

How this would work:

Once the draft is completed, each team captain would create a team at the osl, add the new team members then join the proper ladder. Once the teams are on the ladder then the season will begin. The ladder will help determine finals seeding and also track stats. Once the regular season is completed then the ladder will be archived.

Matches during the regular season would be setup per Taka's normal schedule that he makes and then its up to the Team Captains to challenge the teams before each upcoming match. During the challenging process the team captains can discuss a match time through the match comm option in their Team Control Panel. Then when the match is complete the team captains will report the win/loss and enter in the stats from the game. I would suggest map end screenshots for this.

When the regular season ends we would then move to the tournament system for the finals matches. Then when the finals are complete we can archive this tournament and all of teams players with all of the stats.

The site is ready to go, all that is missing is all of us utilizing it.

RE: Season 4 Proposal
I'm game. To do this does everyone have to be registered on the OSL site? If so, we need to get ppl signed up there before Season 4 Draft.

Yes, they will have to register there in order to be on a team. I will get a list of people that are not registered yet.

One thing I need to know is how we want to handle map/side choice. Right now its setup to select 3 random maps along with a random side for each map. If we dont want random maps then this can easily be turned off and the team captains can select maps/sides in match comms.

Since we don't have permanent teams where a higher seed gets preference, I like the idea of random maps/sides. What maps will the system choose from? Also, I assume in a best of 3 games, it won't choose the same map twice?

The maplist is setup from the admin panel on the website. It can be edited at anytime to add/remove maps. It will not select the same map twice.

This sounds like a very workable plan. Let's do it!

RE: Season 4 Proposal
For those that may not now. Season 4 has been delayed because of inactivity. If we can keep the attendance up at the mixers and the interest is there to have another season then we can get things rolling again. I will say that things will be arranged a little differently for the next season if we decide to do it. We will use the OSL's ladder and tournament sections for the match arrangements. I was thinking of maybe a 4-6 game regular season then have a playoff for the title. We could even set something up for prizes for the winner. I know APC once said that if we want to do prizes that he may be able to help out with that.

I was also considering doing the draft differently. I would do the draft how we used to do it at the OSL when we played T2. Just gather all the names through signups then just have the draft with team captains present. I think it would go smoother and take less time that way.

With all that said, the interest still has to be there to even consider it. Maybe we can get some of the [CAS] guys/gals involved?

RE: Season 4 Proposal
Considering the drop in attendance I think we have to get some of them involved. I'm also hoping attendance might pick up a bit now that finals are ending, but not gonna hold my breath.

I think we should really get rules finalized. We seem to be kicking around several rules unable to make a firm decision due to lack of input. Maybe we should start a poll for some of the more contentious ideas? I'm just trying to get more input on the rules that we'd all be using because it seems like only a few of us are offering input on the forum.

RE: Season 4 Proposal
Ive been away on vacation/work but I'll be on this weekend and the upcoming weeks. But I've always been a fan of discussing these things live through TS. My suggestion Spine/Olde is to put a date and time we could all join TS and discuss the rules we want and go with it. Sometimes discussing through forums could take days to get finalized where with this potential setting we could just hammer out all ideas.

Thoughts?
