League Match of the Week

If I'm not mistaken, we still have two months left to go in the National League, correct?

What might prove an interesting twist is to have a League Match of the week. If players start that type of match that week (or once every two weeks if a week is too short), the winning Club gets awarded "bonus points" (maybe a win counts as 1.5 wins? I'm not sure how the points work).

The match of the week could be something as simple as a No Battleship, No Air match, or as intricate as a historical recreation (of course, that limits what Clubs could play the match - we shouldn't do this unless we make sure every club gets a week that includes their nation. There are always "what if historical" matches though.) Maybe a convoy week.

I guess the point would be to encourage people to try different types of game types. For you historical gurus out there, it might also be a way of getting some additional history into the Clubhouse and educating us less-knowledgeable types.

Thoughts?

A good way to get convoys, night and distance games into the mix

I like the idea, but 1 week is definitely too fast of a turnaround time.  Even 2 weeks might be pushing it depending on the size of the match / availability of the players.

What about say a week to start games - when all such games are finished set another challenge

It is a good idea, I agree with fires and flak though, a week may be a little to fast of a a turn around.  If we go with what flak says, a week to start, then start a new match of the week thread when it is finished.

We also won't be changing the points structue of the league, especially since we are already in the season.  Keep coming up with these ideas, its been interesting so far Very Happy

It's why I said "[i]f players start that type of match that week" since I know that most games will take more than a week to play. I also suggested maybe having a game of every two weeks.

I don't think we need to worry about the turn-around time being too fast for different types of games. Some people won't want to play a convoy scenario, and this way they won't have to wait a month until a new game-type becomes available.

As to points - it's your call sub. I just don't know what the motivation will be for people to partake in a certain kind of game they haven't played before without some sort of reward. If every active player in the clubhouse agreed to a point change for this type of match, it wouldn't be a big deal. Getting that agreement from everyone would, unfortunately, not be too arduous of a task at the moment.

Ok solo, lets give this a go.  I'll put you in charge of announcing the events.  Here is what I am thinking..... Lets not have a match of the week but 4-6 special event type matches per league season.

So that would break down to a "League Special Event Match" every few weeks.  Players playing these special events would still do their match request in the match request area but could report in to the thread you start with the special event playing conditions.  There would also be a time frame where the players would have to start their match (ex feb11-feb25).  As long as the match is started in between these dates, it would count.  I will count the matches as double points (6 for the winner, 2 for the opponent) which would be a good motivator to participate in the special event and could provide some extra credit for the clubs in need of a boost. It will be the responsibly of the winning player to announce the match as a "League Special Event Match" when they report their win.

I would prefer that the events be set up more as condition based as opposed to historical scenario based so that all clubs can participate, especially with the extra points available.....just to keep it fair.

Let me know what you think,

cheers

Solo,
Once you know what you want to do, ill play you straight away to demo the game and conditions
sublime828

So what say you solo, does this sound like something you would like to do??


What are the thoughts of the rest of you clubhouse goers?  Please discuss what you think about the above proposal.  Thanks guys

Sorry! I'll write a response tomorrow.

Hmm... for some reason I thought I had responded. Sounds good to me. I'll think of a League Special Event Match type and get that posted. Any suggestions? I'd love to try a convoy scenario, but I'm not sure how they are played.

Anyone here a convoy expert and willing to write out a description of how to play one of those matches?

It's in the 2010 rulebook
100 points including transports for the defender, 80 for the attacker. I think they're worth 20 per trader once they get off the map.

For fairness - you could play 2 games back to back changing roles

sounds like a good idea.  Very Happy

Ok solo, when you have the scenario ready, start a thread called the "NCLC Special Event #1"  Be sure to include all of the requirements and restate the stuff above (time frame, double points, etc)  Good job man, thanks for the help  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy
