Chex Quest Summer League!
« on: May 18, 2009, 12:56:55 AM »
Guys, I thought of a pwnzorz idea for the summer.  I have league software on my computer, in which I can schedule games, set the points for wins or losses.  Edit teams, and other neat stuff.  I was thinking we could use this software and have 2 player teams compete in either team deathmatch or ctf (best of 3).  I could basically schedule in when we play games (can just use this to determine the number of games, the results can be edited at any time.  And it will keep track of the standing automatically.  2 points for a win, zero for a loss, 1 for a tie (how we would end up with a tie I have no idea) XD

What do you guys think?

I like! A real tournament! This would own!

And TMOB, it's very much possible for a deathmatch to end in a tie, because I've seen duels and LMS matches end in a tie before. However, CTF can't end in a tie, because in order to get the enemy's flag at your own base, you must also have your own flag, meaning both teams can't score at the same time.

it wouldn't be so much as a tournament so much as a real league as in sports. ;)

If we wanted to, we could have a tournament at the end with seeding based on point totals at the end of the season instead of the one with the most points at the end wins.

I would LOVE this! Kinda like the stats thing I was trying to get. Does this hafta be manually edited, or is it automatic? also, any way to have the results on a webpage?

(the last part is wishful thinking...)

Well, I could create a freewebs site for it. ;)

*edit* yes I would have to manually put the results in, but calculations and standings are all automatic.

I could actually schedule in exact dates and times for matches to be played, but that would not work well, so I would just put in the necessary number of games in the season, say one or two games per team each week, for example one team deathmatch and one capture the flag match per week, and the program would set up the team matches appropriately so that everyone plays everyone the same amount of times.

We would have to decide on who is on who's team before the season starts though if we do this.

*edit to the edit* Well, I could also post screenies of the software in action.

And here is the freewebs site for the Chex Quest United league.  http://chexquestunited.webs.com/

You can look at the current standings page and you will see an image of the current standing, sorry guys, that was the best I could do for online standings. ;)

I find the fact that the standings image is clipped... disturbing.

odd, I'll try to fix that.

*edit* fixed, had to shrink the image.

*edit* there is now a results page for when we need it.

There is only one problem with this...you would hafta be constantly watching the scores. (or pick through a log of the server and find tally the scores manually, then calculate the outcome manually, then put the inputs in.

OR...if you're a good coder...
create a program to take a text file and sort the lines between chat lines, server lines, and death messages. then classify the death messages by person, then have it detect whether its a suicide or a kill, and a positive or negative accordingly. then output the outcomes, and enter them into the software...

mebe...XD

Or, I was thinking that I would go by what skulltag says, and input the scores based off the final scores. :P  say 25-12 TDM or 5-3 CTF  shutout victory earns an extra point if I can set it to that. ;)

Hm, I say go with Team Deathmatch. I'm not sure if all of us are good at CTF (I mean, I am, and if everyone wants CTF I'm cool with it. I'm just trying to make sure everything's even).

But this is super sweet! If we could get a tournament (league, whatever) going that actually works this year, that'll be great. I'm all ready for new things.

As for teams....hmm. I don't know whether we should do captains (T'would be TMOB and me. Dunno why we'd do this, but if we had to choose...), pick at random, put up campaigns the way we did for prez and vice prez...hmm. All I know is that we are not putting Xbolt and Super Searcher on the same team.  XD

hehe, all i can think of is we can probably form 3 teams minimum as I want to make this a 2v2 league.

That is, assuming, you, me, atarian, manny, pikazec, and Super Searcher plays.

hehe, we could just do team death match.

Btw, I figured out how to insert tables, don't need to upload the images anymore.

Check out the new standings page!

I obviously must not have seen the old one, because this one looks exactly the same.
