yeah i know it took me a while... i'm not that smart :roll:

the magic numbers are 5, 6, & 7 :partyyy:

basically, it allows the leagues to accommodate any number of participants above 16 (the minimum) by using groups of 5-7. ie... 33 players = 4 groups of 5 players, 1 group of 6 players, 1 group of 7 players. i just finished testing the base spreadsheets that will allow the organizers to schedule and rank the participants during qualifiers...

Qualifying Rounds

Qualifier Structure:
*Maps: To Be Determined
*Qualifiers are played in Head To Head mode. 2 Rounds of 4 Games each.
*Qualifier Groups consist of 5-7 Players or Teams each.
*Qualifier Group placement is determined by random draw at the beginning of each Round.
*Inactive Players/Teams at the beginning of the 2nd Round will be placed into Inactive Groups.
Inactive = no logins for 7+ days

Qualifier Ranking:
*Qualifier Ranking will determine League Placement.
*Qualifier Ranking is determined first by Player or Team Record, then by Qualifier Rating.

Qualifier Rating
*Qualifier Rating = (Qualifier 1 Rating + Qualifier 2 Rating) / 2
*Qualifier 1 Rating = 80% Performance Rating, 20% Momentum Rating
*Qualifier 2 Rating = 80% Performance Rating, 20% Momentum Rating
*Winner Performance Rating = (Opponent Rating * 1.03) + (400 + Expected Score)
*Loser Performance Rating = (Opponent Rating) - (400 - Expected Score)
*Tie Performance Rating = (Opponent Rating + Expected Score)
*Expected Score = 1 / (1 + (10 * ((Opponent Rating - Player Rating) / 400)))
*Momentum Rating = Player Rating after each matchup according to a predetermined schedule. Final Momentum Rating is 20% of Qualifier Rating.

18 Player Qualifier Test

I created an imaginary qualifying period comprised of 18 players. The results are listed below... if you would like a copy of the test spreadsheets with example data please pm me (KingHowardII) with your request and an email address to send the excel file to.

it'll be a little while still lol... "projected" start of May 2015, but it really depends on the release of AoC4. the leagues probably won't be in the original release, they will likely be an update after AoC4 has been in play for awhile :partyyy:
