There will be 4 groups (ALPHA, BETA, OMEGA, GAMMA)
and all the teams will be split up evenly among these groups...

Each week, there will be 2 matches (or idk)
4 Weeks and Playoffs

The groups you are in, you have to play each team once, and after that, your schedule will be based on your record, and each week you will get a new team to play

So let's say 16 teams

4 teams in a group so 3 matches (1ST WEEK Sounds more fun :D)

so then after the first week, a team is lets say 2-1, they will get paired up with 2 teams that are 2-1...

Third week would be, if a team is 4-1, then they would play teams with 4-1 or most similar record that they havent played yet...

4th week would be one placement match

I'm thinking the winner of each division (alpha omega beta gamma will get a bye)

So the playoffs would be like

12 teams :O
Single or Double elimination hasn't been decided

So 3 matches first week, then 2, then 2, then 1... so 8 matches again

----------------------------------------------------------

2nd idea

idk there's lots of ideas...

we need alot more teams :)))

i don't like the "play teams that are your caliber" approach.

If you wanna make things perfectly even, albeit gay, just make two leagues. League I for good teams, League 2for suck teams, then have two entirely different tourneys. But, one prob is that I don't think there are enough teams for this.....

so screw team balancing.

---------------------

We just need one large pool of teams where each team plays another once. The upper 50% make the playoff cut with the top 2 teams getting byes.

We could do it NFL style where you play division rivals twice and have a few outside-of-division matches, but then there will just be bitching about strength of schedule crap.


WE"RE ALL OVER THINKING THIS. IT"S FINE.

Things just got a bit jacked up because:

A: teams are crapping out
B: we're only playing 2 games a week, so we couldn't' possibly have an 8 week long tourney where each team plays each other once.

Any format should work if there are enough players who can show up on a regular basis.

Because 60-70% of the players are from the US/Canada.

i think you should definitely try and cater the league format to the idea of having less teams rather than more, its great having lots of teams but the fact is the teams with less skilled players will always have a tough time getting a full roster and this will just lead to more rescheduelling and missed matches which is a pain, i think the best idea is one league with less teams where everyone plays everyone, or two leagues like a 1st division and 2nd division where the winning team/s from the 2nd move up to the 1st and losers move down.
