Weekly Schedule and Tournaments
Match ups will be generated on Monday, The mod for your division will announce match ups in your divisional discord chat room (the discord app does not have to be mobile, its web based as well).At this time both parties will then be able to see who they are facing. Players will then set up their own matches between Thursday-Sunday. Agreed upon match times must be posted in the discord division room If one of the players does not show up on the agreed upon time, (30 minute limit after the agreed time) the match is forfeited and the points are awarded to the other player. If there are multiple no shows, matches can be arranged between those in the same division.
There will be two weeks of match ups, with the third week being a tournament week. As of now there is only one “ranked” match per week (unless you are a wild card) to where points can be earned, as the process is smoothed out more will be added.
Every second week a “wildcard” player will be selected by the Mods to play an additional set if there is an odd number of people in the division. A wildcard just plays an additional set in their division for an opportunity at more points. This player must be selected from the lowest scoring pool of players in the division, for instance if you have 6 players that scored 0 in week 1, one of them will be selected to be the wildcard player for week 2. The wild card is currently only being used to balance league play, (odd number of members in a division) however depending on reception, we will roll it out for an every week thing, randomly generated.
For the sake of simplicity, we will use the Swedish model.
We will be playing a first to 2 set, with matches within those sets being first to 2. Each win in a match will constitute a point. If you sweep both matches 2-0, you will be awarded an addition point for that week. So everyone will play at least two matches against their opponent. If the first 2 matches are split, a third final match will be needed to determine the set winner. Sets should only end in 2-0 or 2-1.
For tournament weeks each division will hold their own separate “regional” tournament to decide who will go on to play in the league wide tournament. The top 4 players in each division qualify for the SRK league wide tournament, all to be played in Week 3 of each season.
All matches for the regional tournament must be completed by Friday, as the weekend will be when the league wide tournament will take place. I understand there will be scheduling conflicts with time zone differences, those involved as well as mods will do our best to accommodate all qualifiers, however if we cannot accommodate a time, or you simply just cannot make it for the tourney, your spot will be forfeited and the opponent will advance.
The tournament structure will be classic double elimination style, FT 2 set until winners finals, losers finals and grand finals. Those will be decided by a FT3. The player from losers bracket must reset the bracket to win the set. All tourney brackets will be linked and archived on this thread as well as posted in designated discord room once the new server is released. Please report matches as soon as they finish to a mod so that it can be recorded and the next match can be set up. Everyone will be seeded by points in the regional tourney, however seeding in the league wide tourney will be random.
Please note that the timing for this is extremely fluid, we will do our best to accommodate everyone but there will simply be times when we cannot make our scheduled time and that is ok. We will do our best to make sure everyone can play but know with over 60 players that may simply not be possible every third week.
*If lag becomes an issue we may revisit this format
Discord will be used as a mobile way to link up with your opponent. As of now there are several discord servers, Once we complete Season 1 I ask that everyone migrate to This server:
<Weekly divisional standings>
Actually links coming soon.
**Division Format: **
The current format sits as follows
US south/ = 13
US east 1= 14
US east 2= 12
Thank you for the match IDs. I hope to have the youtube page and a season 1 highlight reel ready at the start of season 2!!
As a player, your only responsibilities are to agree upon a time with your opponent, show up for your match, and record your match results in the discord server. You can also report your CFN match ID if you want it to have a chance to be featured in the seasonal highlight reel. This is completely optional however. The amount of matches a week and seasonal length depends squarely on each player’s shoulders. If we have great turnout and it isn’t a pain for the mods to get match results on time, we can expand our sets per week and adjust scoring. I don’t want the mods to have to track down individuals and try to make sure people show up for matches, which would be too much work for people just volunteering their time.
Registration is open.***
