Piaras M Carney When I say "offenders" I don't mean all people with unplayed games, I mean all people with 5 unplayed games (or more). So don't worry about being relegated if you leave 1 or 2 games unplayed, but that doesn't mean it's OK to not play them.

Piaras M Carney

Piaras M Carney OK, then. It'll be once. Forget what is said about playing each other twice, because that is abolished.

Piaras M Carney There was a bit of confusion as to Derek Matthews' application before the sign-ups ended, so I'll redo the fixtures. Division 3 now has 8 players along with Division 4.

Robin M Just to let my opponents know, I’m having computer issues so may be a little while before I can get round to playing games. Hope you understand.

James Haughton

James Haughton I'll should be having jaw surgery tomorrow and then I'll be in hospital for a couple of days afterwards. Hopefully, I'll be back on apto next week, but this is why I'll be inactive for a few days at least.

Piaras M Carney

Piaras M Carney Good luck with your surgery James, and get well soon!

Tourney round: The Apto-Tude League: Cycle 27

<< Cycle 27: Sign-Up Page

Notes from the organizer: I was advised to get on with creating this now because new pages can sometimes take a long time to be approved.

So, there is yet an undetermined number of divisions as sign-ups are still open, but each division will have 6 to 8 players, who are sorted by Pro Ranks, so whoever is in the top 6 come the start of the cycle will have bagged a de facto spot in Division I.

Should there be any extra applicants, I will round it to the nearest 8 e.g. 30 -> 32, 36-> 40, 35-> 32 and the final number of divisions will be based on that. The bottom divisions will almost always have 8, but should there be any missing or extra applicants, the top divisions will be 1 player shorter than the very bottom for every player missing from or added to the rounded number. However, I will try to keep the amount of players as evenly distributed as possible.
38 applicants = 7, 7, 8, 8, 8.
25 applicants = 8, 8, 9.
30 applicants = 7, 7, 8, 8.
13 applicants = 6, 7.
14 applicants = 7, 7.

Players will face each other twice, for a maximum total of 14 games per division.
3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
Players are sorted by:
1. Points
2. Point difference
3. Points scored
4. Head-to head record w/ tied opponent
5. Head-to-head point difference
6. Pro Rank at the end of the cycle

Here's how the league structure will go.
Division I: Bottom is relegated and 2nd-bottom enters into a playoff. If they lose, they're relegated.
Division II etc: 1st is promoted and 2nd enters into a playoff. If they win, they're promoted. Relegation system is as above.


As for the points deduction rule, I have ironed it out a wee bit. I will send an aptomail to all the players participating in the League. They can then inform me if one of their opponents isn't making an effort to play a game, but they are.
(You do not want to be caught misusing that privilege. I haven't decided what the punishments would be for that but, and in particular for repeat offenders, they ain't gonna be pretty.)
Similarly, I could message the players if I've noticed they haven't played a league game in a while, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 weeks or so. At the end of the cycle (see below) I will deduct 1 point for every deliberately unplayed game. If you have been trying to play your games, but the other person hasn't, AND IF THERE IS SUITABLE EVIDENCE TO BACK THAT UP, I will not deduct a point for unintentionally unplayed games. (Obviously, if both players can't bother their a---s, I'll deduct from both of them.) However, if you have deliberately left 5 games unplayed come the end of the cycle, you will be placed at the immediate foot of your division table, and ergo, relegated regardless of your position. If there are 2 offenders in one division, they will be separated by the tie breaking procedure above.
The lowest-ranked of those offenders will be relegated,
the 2nd-lowest will qualify for the playoffs,
and any other offenders will start with -5 points should there be another cycle. This will be the general case if an offender is not relegated (which includes winning their playoff match).
If you consistently, deliberately, leave 5 games unplayed for 3 cycles, you will be withdrawn, and you will have to sign up again should you wish to participate again.

I'll try to keep the tables updated every week or so by posting a link in the comments.

Obviously, you don't need to sign up if you've done so already.

I think I've covered everything so on that note, I think I'll end it here.
Good luck to all applicants, and happy round-robin-ing!
