The Quarter Cup - Signup Encore

Postby ltraynor » Thu Jul 23, 2020 1:05 am

Thanks to Sufy for the prompt and Zorax for this idea to double the current groups -

Taking signups to expand the competition. Given how quickly it filled and how many were disappointed to miss the cut. It's truly going to be an epic comp if this is pulled off. - 4 teams will be added to each group that currently exists in the main comp however the format will change that each team only plays each other once (or twice if we do a mid week fixture) ! So fixtures will change.


I'll reseed using the same method as I have before and put a huge emphasis on making each group as balanced and competitive as possible. The road to champion will be that much harder though! The Champion will get even more bragging rights as a result.

Most Importantly with the comp doubling in size, I am going to need help for it to run smoothly! It's a big job for one person at this size. So anyone who can help in any way would be appreciated. Rob has provided me the codes to schedule the matches so they are ready to go once the comp has filled (they are easy just time consuming)

Jobs I could use some help with are as follows:

Stats and Tables:
Coding the matches:
Match Reports:
Editor for Beyond the Boundary:


Unfortunately I'll need full numbers to make this happen though but will do my best to encourage every active member possible to participate.!

you could also do 8 groups of 8, followed by a knockout stage of 16 teams. Means every team gets to play a wider variety of opponents in the group stages, but would also mean you have to re-do all the fixtures again, so probably not worth the effort.

It's a good idea actually, everyone only plays each other once and the comp only requires an extra week. I just never expected so many sign up so quickly so it threw me a bit. It's still a month out so definitely chance for change. I guess first step is to fill enough to make that happen. As optimistic as I am I am not sure if we'll have enough.

That said I am a bit overwelmed with running a comp with that many people and keeping up with stats and tables weekly. Might be biting off a bit much.

maybe there's something the Devs can do on the backend to help with stats tracking and points tables?
