Hi all,

this is a request for the organisators of the current one :
I've seen that the semi-final has been started before the previous setting (19 june ), http://www.ageofconquest.com/league-schedule.html
and no problem with that i've already finished mine
but i'm afraid that the final would be started too early !
I explain i will be out for 5 days 28juin~1 juillet i'm going to Werchter festival http://rockwerchter.be/fr/lineup/index.aspx banana
Please don't start it before the 2 or 3 juillet, i wouldn't have asked for another round but it's the final.
That would be, i guess, too bad for everyone to have a crappy one.

:gott: :gott: :gott:

won't be much of a final if 1 of the 2 finalists is partying in Werchter during the final round... i'd hate to see the 1vs1 league end that way. i defo support clay's request to move the start date to July 2nd or 3rd (if at all possible to do so) :gott:

I know realRiff has posted various start dates and such for the 1vs1 league. It would be nice to have that control but the bottom line is we don't for the 1vs1 league. The 1vs1 League Tourney was set up in the League Realm. As such it runs like a game in the Tourney realm according the code written for it. Therefore, the final round will start when the code says to. The organizers have no control over this. I don't know if it's possible but it might be possible for noblemaster to disable the 1vs1 League or alter the code so it doesn't start up, when the code says it ready to do so. However, all of this is dependent on what noblemaster can do about it.

Some possible alternate solutions are:
1) Ask your opponent to not take any moves until you return.
2) Hope that the formula that determines when the next start round will start is after you get back.
3) Take a computer with you or find an internet cafe that is close by and check in once a day.

Otherwise, if I had that control I think your request is reasonable and I would grant it. Do you recall when the previous round ended? If so you can take an educated guess as to when the next round will start. I believe the League is coded the same as the Standard or Tourney realm games, which is MAX TURN x 2. If I recall, the 1vs1 league is set to MAX TURNS = 40 so the next round will start in 80 days from when the previous round has ended. This is just my best guess so don't hold it against me if I'm wrong.

it doesn't seem to work like that, there was no 80 days between each turn... that' d have made the whole league during more than a year while we have done three turns in 3 months..

the only solution for me, 1 would change the game anyway 3 is not possible, Festival Fodder ! music camping alcool drugs => no laptop ! spanking

i guess it's 42 days in total !

the league start the 15 mars
with 42 days
second turn would have started around 27 avril
third turn around 8 june (wich it is the day of the start for real)
the final would be around the 10 juillet

Tell me that i'm right !

Once again correct me if I'm wrong but I believe you don't add the days from a fixed point. Such as if the MAX TURN is 10 and the next round starts in 15 days and the game started on 1/1/12. It's not 10+15 next round starts on 1/26/12. I believe it starts whenever the round ends so, even if the game could go for 10 rounds if you finished it on 1/5/12 then the next rounds will be on 1/21/12 and not 1/26/12. Did that make sense?

if a round started every 15 days from 1/1/12, then the 2nd round would start on 1/16/12, 3rd round would start on 1/31/12, etc... when a game(s) ends from a previous round has no bearing on when the next round will start. even if all games from the previous round end on 1/5/12, the next round would start on 1/16/12. :partyyy:

the formula is good and clay's calculations (now corrected) are on target. the final round should start approximately 20 juillet, regardless of when either semifinal game finished :gott:
