League Settings


The RCB FFA League is a CS event that starts on the 11th of July 2016 and ends on the 21st of August with the aim of providing a leaderboard of the most competitive and active RCB FFA players. The leaderboard is made by submitting matches to the League and thus earning score to yourself by a value stored in the match link itself.


Submitting matches

You will be able to submit matches to review starting with the 11th of July in the RCB Match Submission subforum. You are advised to make a thread for your name and post all your match links you wish to submit in that very thread (to keep it organized and clean) all the way up to the 21st of August. I will then review the match link and check, if the match was according to rules (see Game Room Settings and Game Settings) and then add the score of all players provided in the match link to the overall leaderboard.
You can submit two matches per day, however, you may still earn score from matches submitted by others.


Leaderboard

The leaderboard will keep track of the overall score of each player and position them to according ranks. I will try to update atleast once per day, so do not frantically check back whether you have passed your rival on the leaderboard or not.

How does the Leaderboard work?

I have changed the scenario in a way that it will keep track of a player's performance in a game and then display it in Achievements -> Economy -> Trade Profit. The value of Trade Profit is the amount of points awarded to you by playing that one match, however the winner of the match will receive twice the amount of points to the leaderboard that is displayed for Trade Profit. In addition, 8 player games are obviously more competitive than 7, 6 or 5 player games, that is why an eight player game will award 100% of the Trade Profit, a seven player game 75%, a six player game 50% and a five player game only 25%.

How is Trade Profit calculated?

You must login into Voobly to view image

Trade Profit is simply the sum of Food, Wood, Gold and Stone Collected. Each one of them is used to award a player in a certain category.
  • Food Collected is the amount of kings you have earned during the entire game times two.
    For example, if you received 40 kings in the Bottom Store you are awarded with 80 points.
  • Wood Collected is the total sum of every 2 minutes survived.
    For example, if you were killed between 56:00 and 57:59 you are awarded 56 points.
  • Gold Collected is the sum of kill milestone awards.
    By reaching 500 kills first you gain 5 points, reaching 1000 kills first awards 10 points, reaching 1500 kills first awards 15 points and reaching 2000 kills first awards 20 points.
  • Stone Collected is the sum of Pyramids damaged times 10.
    If you did damage to atleast one Pyramid during your game you are awarded 10 points. Sadly there is no 100% safe way to detect who destroyed a Pyramid or atleast I do not know how to, so finishing off a player and razing the Pyramid does not give you any extra points.


Game Room Settings

  • The game has to be rated to CS - RCB.
    There are other ways to produce a match link for the League, but you are advised to keep to the proper ladder.
  • RCB Fair Mod has to be enabled!
    RCB games without the modification enabled will not give anyone score on the leaderboard.


Game Settings

  • Spots filled: Atleast FIVE players must be present at the start of the game
    Games with FOUR players and less will not give anyone score on the leaderboard
  • Scenario: =V= RCB 2016 League
  • Speed: Fast
  • Starting Age: Standard
  • Resources: Standard
  • Lock Speed/Teams
  • Victory: Standard
  • Reveal Map: Explored
  • Record Game: YES
  • Cheats DISABLED!
  • All Tech DISABLED!
NB! It is your duty to make sure the Game Settings are correct!



VCOM Host Rulings

  • Any rule may be changed by the tournament organizers on or before the night.
  • All rulings by the official VCOM tournament organizers are final.

Activity is important yes, but that does not guarantee you will win anything.

Quite simple, as I just multiply the Trade Profit with 2, 100%, 75%, 50% or 25% and then add that number to the player's overall score.
yup

It is a real shame, Gary, that you will not be able to get a premium or a badge without really putting in any effort, very sad indeed.

No, It's a real shame people will get all of the above for being most active...

If I had all hours of every day to play AoC alone, somebody to work for me and cook me meals and clean up after me etc. I'd play as much as I could to win, but frankly most of us don't and many of the top RCB players like to play a variety of maps... you don't see me or damian in many FFA RCB's because we play many maps .... tournament setting best way IMO to keep it competitive anyway

Yes, a leaderboard will be made.




About the activity, if enough people want me to put a limit on how many matches a player can submit each day, then I will do that. So far only only Suchen proposed that the limit should be 3 games per day. Better think fast, because I do want the rules to be final before the 11th.
