As some of you are aware, a new format for league play is being developed. The basis implements a "head to head" season as requested, which i've molded into a "rough draft" to get things rolling... I'll be posting various league topics, please feel free to comment on the developments... and please vote on the polls! :gott:

Note that this new format is being created for AoC4, and we're fairly optimistic about league play starting in May of Conquest 2015.

New Format Goals

1. Participation - to provide league play for every one of an indeterminate number of players.

2. Inactivity - to determine an efficient method for which to replace inactive players during league play.

3. Fairness - to provide an equal opportunity battlefield for all players.

4. Adaptability - to create a league structure that is adaptable to player styles and sponsors.

5. Fun - period.

Below is the rough draft of the structure that I've been playing around with... just to give you an idea of what came out of all the suggestions and ideas. Each item will be detailed more in other topics, Thanks!

League Structure

* Qualifying Rounds will determine League Placement.
* Qualifiers are played in Head To Head mode. 4 Games per Round.
* Each League will be filled in multiples of 16 Players or Teams.
* Each League is comprised of 2 Divisions of 8 Players or Teams.
* Currently there are up to 4 Player and 2 Team Leagues available.
* Players or Teams that fail to qualify will be placed in Reserve Leagues.
* Seasons are played in Head To Head mode. 3-4 Games per Round.
* Each Player or Team faces their Divisional Opponents twice per Season (14 Games).
* Each Player or Team faces their Non-Divisional Opponents once per Season (8 Games).
* The Player or Team with the best record in each Division advances to the League Championships.
* The League Champions advance to the World Championship.
* Championships are played in Knock Out mode. 1 Game per Round.
