Event details from the Club House Wardroom:



Theater Club League Championship Tournament

The Theater Club League Championship Tournament is an annual event meant to give the Theater Clubs an opportunity to compete against each other to determine who is the Top Dog of the Theater Clubs in the Clubhouse.

Starting a Club Match:

Theater Club League Championship (TCLC) matches can be played at any time throughout the TCLC season. To compete in a TCLC Match, one must first be a registered member of the Club they wish to represent.  Then they may start a thread in the online matches’ sub-forum stating his or her intentions of playing a Club Match.  Theater Clubs must declare which nation they will be using.  All matches must be against other Theater Club Members in order to score points for your club.  TCLC matches should follow the rules in the Advanced Rule Book from the new starter including sub harassment, strafing penalties, and small ship evasion.  When a challenger has been found, both members private message their respective club president that they are engaging in a Club Match.  These players then proceed to play their game and then the winner of the match will post the result in the Theater Club League Championship Standings thread.

When starting a TCLC Match please try to adhere to the following format for the Thread title:

(game) Club *** vs Club ^^^ ___ pts

example:
(WAS) Club Julius vs Club Caesar 300pts

Rules:

TCLC Matches will be 50-500 point games played on any map that is approved by both players involved.  Builds are to be private messaged to a clubhouse moderator for verification.  Victory is acheived by the following formula:

V=1.5(F)
O=V/#

V is the victory points necessary to win.
F is how many points each player has to build their fleet.
O is the value of the objectives.
# is the number of objectives your playing with..
In case of a tie then the player with the most points remaining on the map is the winner.  Games can either be played with the advanced War at Sea rules or with Order of Build rules found at http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/about9123.html .

If a player of a match appears to forgot or refuses to continue an online match first private message them to see if they have any external problems or activities that is taking up time.  If that player should refuse to reply to your private message then please private message a moderator (Brigman, SWO_Daddy, sublime828) with your problem (please allow time for people to gather their thoughts. 2-3 days after your message arrives).  The moderator will attempt to communicate with the player who is having the problems.  If a match goes unattended for more than 2 weeks than the moderator will private message both involved.  The result may be a forfeit by one of the players depending on the circumstances (any external problems or events that are taking up time will not cause the player to lose his match we will be very understanding).

There are two way to play a Theater Match in the Club House:

1) Global Match: You play a fleet from your Theater Club against a fleet from a different Theater Club.

2) Theater Match: You and your opponent each play a different fleet from ONE theater ("play in the theater") - either your theater or your opponent's theater. To play in the theater one of the two players must be a member of that Theater's Club. Members of the same Theater Club cannot play against each other.

E.g., I play Club Frozen Seas Germans, while my opponent (Club Pacific) plays Club Frozen Seas UK. Alternatively, against a Club Pacific opponent, I could request to play Club Pacific IJN while my opponent takes Club Pacific USN. No matter what theater you're playing in, a win is still a win for your club.

Scoring:

For every game played a member will either give their team a win or a loss.  A win will be worth 3 points and a loss 1.  At the end of the season the Points/Game ratio for every club that has over 10 games and at least 1 game per month will be assessed and the Club with the highest ratio is declared the winner.

Seasons:

The Theater Club League Championship will last for for 100 days.  After the season is complete there will be a 2-3 month intermission where members may feel free to play games against each other without it counting towards standings and where the winning club will be able to display their prize.  This intermission period is not set in stone and will be in flux from season to season.  The seasons for National Club League Championship and the Theater Club League Championship will alternate.  An announcement will be posted in the Clubhouse a week or two prior to the start of the next season.

Sounds good Flak.  If you want a format to keep track of everything in a single post, I recommend making a copy of what we used for the first post in the National League thread, modify it, and cut and paste it into your first post here.  I can handle that tomorrow if you want...too late here, and one too many beers.
Flakstruk

Good idea SWO, I'll just have to go through and fix the National to Theatre and we iz sweet
firesdstny

YAY!!! something else to take all my time Smile

Just Kidding (kind of), thanks for getting it rolling!

Make sure to put out the announcement and to alert the General Discussion.  See if we can't pull a few new people in.
SeaAngel

It is about time!  Thanks Flak for taking the lead.
hokiepastor

I'm pumped!  This will be my first League tourney.
SWO_Daddy

Flak, I touched up the first post of the thread, and made the thread a Global Announcement.  Thanks for getting this going!
nrnstraswa

Excellent! I'm ready to play for Club Atlantic!

Thanks mate, look forward to playing a few close games!
Doberman

Id like to see whos in the League for all the theatres.
Whos the most and least active?

Seems Frozen Seas is Heavy
Club Med 2nd
Atlantic 3
Indian 4
Pacific 5
? 6

Just curious. I see alt of active members who post often, but do they play, will they play?

I may wish to join the least active club (2-4 league players)
My understanding of Thetre club games is a little better now.
Flakstruk

Pacific is probably you best bet Doberman
Doberman

I was thinking Med (see lots of regulars)
Indian
Atlantic

But if I want to play Italians I can play that theatre so no harm.

Just i only have 1 CFS and would like to help a club with less support.

Seems pretty well round except Pacific
firesdstny

last season CFS only had 2 or 3 active.
Club med had a few others.

Pacific had 4 active and would've won but didn't get in 10 games...odd.

CIO was the least with poor Flak holding the flag, but seems he has some fresh blood this time through.

I'm looking forward to this season!
Doberman

With so much going on or in the works it is hard to gauge participation.

Just looking over rosters. I'm fine sticking with CFS, but if anybody needs some help, speak now.

Now I know I can play Italy vs. Club Med and not restricted to just Frozen Seas builds helps a lot.

Looking forward to having some fun, though I won't be doing 4 games at once like Nationals.
Tricki Vic BB71

Haven't played in awhile. Count me in.

Ready, aye, ready.
Flakstruk

Only a few days left guys. Hope your ready to rock and roll

I'm sorting out a couple of prizes now, not much but a bit of fun for everybody
Brigman

Kudos to Flak for getting this running. Smile

I will of course participate as much as I can. Wink

Took a Double Take

NOT complaining but this seems odd or I'm misunderstanding...
As a member of CFS I could play against a member of Club Pacific and play the USN (to my CP opponent's IJN) and score points for CFS... repeatedly?
Theoretically I could play USN all season long and score points for CFS?
This seems counter to all the hard work done to verify which units belonged in which theater... Confused  Confused

(hope I'm not opening a previously settled can of worms/compromise... just curious at the perceived oddity)
Flakstruk

You could, if you only played against club pacific all season.

Part of the issue is that some clubs end up looking like national clubs because of the way their limits work. We're just looking to mix things up
SWO_Daddy

That's true, but as a CFS player, you need to be playing a Club Pacific opponent.  You can't have, for example, a Club Med and Club Frozen Seas player playing in Club Pacific.  At least one of them needs to be a "home" team.

Kick off Tomorrow!
SeaAngel

LOL, it is still Monday Evening here. Cool
Flakstruk

Bloody Yanks lol, get with the program.
SeaAngel

What is the future like?

SeaAngel

Is this where you want us to post results?

Winner: SeaAngel CFS (IJN)
Opponent: hokiepastor CIO (RN)

200 pt game 1941.  hokiepastor brought a pair of BB and I brought a DD swarm.  Dice, dice, dice!  Good Game and a great Opponent!
hokiepastor

Well played, you beat me in fleet design before the keels hit the water. Dice just sealed my fate. But I will hunt you down in the frozen wastes of the north!

looking for a player to play against
Flakstruk

I was just looking at last years theater league

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic35402-0-asc-20.php
Only 2 clubs reached the minimum qualifier of 10 games.

We've had a fantastic turnout, every club has qualified and still a fortnight to get some games in.
Flakstruk

Alright Mates,

The League officially closes on FRIDAY 28th February.
So for the rest of the week, if you start a match, place a post to that affect in the results thread.
No further games can start later than the 28th and any outstanding games will need to be completed no later than SUNDAY 9th MARCH

Good Luck and Get To It
Flakstruk

Mates, no further games can be started and remaining games have a week or so to be completed.

I want to thankyou all very much for your participation. We've had an amazing turn out and the standard of gamesmanship has been excellent
Thanks!
LcdrSwizzle

Thanks for having this. It helped me get into online play, and especially into the Theater Club play, which is much more fun for me than playing against opponents that want 1945 as the year of the battle!
