Basic Rules

 - You may name any players that your local comp allows you to name (E.g. if there's rookie listed players you CAN'T use them).
 - Teams are to name a C, VC and EVC if they wish. WXV, EXV, BXV get Captain x2, AXV also get VC x1.5.
 - Out of position players get a flat 0.5x rate.
 - There's no other multipliers (like resting, HGA)
 - 3 Emergencies in order of preference. Anyone that names more than 3 Emergencies will forfeit their entire emergency line for the week.
 - Rolling lockout, loopholing encouraged.
 - If no team is named before the Friday lockout (Unless I say the deadline is later), team will forfeit their team for the week and only score 750 points. No exceptions, find an assistant or name your team on the previous Monday for all I care.
 - Name the same player in your team more than once, you will forfeit the line(s) at which the breach occurred for the week.
 - Name more players than the 4-4-1-4-2 structure allows, you will forfeit the line at which the breach occurred.

Could someone please post the top 8 teams from EXVs last season in finishing order post-finals and including the manager(s) names. When two teams got knocked out in the same week the one higher on the ladder goes first. Cheers :)


Russian Roulettes - Rids/Nostra
Hungarian Hulks - Holz
Greek Titans - Spite
Serbian Eagles - Nrich
Iceland Polar Bears - HP
Svalbard Valkyries - Zippy
Belgian Bashers - Ele/Rico

Maybe if I think hard enough. These are just all the things I've seen Torp do at various stages through different competitions, that's why I listed them down ;D

*cough* wildcard entries *cough*
If teams don't wish to participate I'll start going down the ladder and grabbing whoever is next :) Had one team declining entry, from Euros :(

Just waiting on one manager to get back to me, as some teams have pulled out. Then I can set a date for the Group Draw. Probably looking at Sunday of Round 1 at this stage, not sure exactly. It'll be at night though, that's what I do know.

Champions League Draw
How it will work
 - There will be 8 groups of 4 teams drawn
 - Each group will contain 1 team from each of the 4 competitions.
 - The teams are seeded from 1 to 8 based on their finishing positions in their respective comps last season (bar the CL winners Iceland who are first).
 - Each group will contain a 1-2 seed, 3-4 seed, 5-6 seed, 7-8 seed.

The Proposed Multiplier
Worlds: 1.00
Euros: 1.00
British: 0.61
Asians: 0.74

Last season we had: 1, 1.024, 0.6284 and 0.7460. When looking at the total points scored across the CL group stages, everything with those multipliers worked out to be pretty even (Euros outscored Worlds without the multiplier amazingly). So just a few tweaks to those numbers is the plan. Any major objections do speak up soon.
Title: Re: XVs Champions League 2017 - Banter Thread
Post by: PowerBug on March 20, 2017, 08:35:21 PM
So the first bit is relatively straight forward. All of the 8 top seeded sides chucked into random.org, and the order which they appear is the order of the groups they are in.

Group AGroup BGroup CGroup DGroup EGroup FGroup GGroup H

Now we get onto the slow part. Again the teams available to into random.org, and the top named side is the one that joins the group :)

Group A has already got a British side in it, so the other 6 teams with 3 or 4 seeds go in the pot

Mexico City Suns join Group A.

Going back to Group A. They have a Worlds and British side, so looking at 5th and 6th seeds, 4 teams enter the pot.

Group A now have the Belgian Bashers as company.

Worlds: 1.00
Euros: 1.00
British: 0.61

Last season we had: 1, 1.024, 0.6284 and 0.7460. When looking at the total points scored across the CL group stages, everything with those multipliers worked out to be pretty even (Euros outscored Worlds without the multiplier amazingly). So just a few tweaks to those numbers is the plan. Any major objections do speak up soon.

This is very much last minute, but was the multiplier calculated from the top 8 teams participating, or from all the teams in the comp? I can't remember if it was last year or the year before, but the competition was just flowered because (worlds?) had such a massive scoring discrepancy between first and last that it skewed it so the top 2 worlds teams were juggernauts with the multiplier having being calculated taking the terrible scores of the bottom of their ladder.

If not, it might be too late to tweak it. I should have mentioned this sooner but I've been so under the pump recently.

Also- with naming more than 3 emergencies, it seems savage the whole team is forfeited, wouldn't the emergency line being forfeited make more sense (that being said, your comp, I know the other comps are a bit more strict than euros :P )

Game on guys!!!

A couple of Euros teams declined the invite. And then as I started asking down the ladder guys didn't reply to my PMs. So I think the 12th ranked Euros side made it in.

I looked at all the scores from the Champions League Group Stages last year. And when you added up all the scores (using the respective comp scoring) to make them all even the multipliers we needed is pretty much what we had last season. There were one or two teams that were outliers in the scoring, which is why I tweaked it slightly, but otherwise I think these numbers work quite well.

As for the last point, follow the rules and you'll have no problems! Everyone here should be competent enough to follow simple rules :) (And there's nothing wrong with asking me a question if you want clarification either!)

PB was pretty clear in regards to the rules, it looks like you'll be scoring 500
In hindsight, I think I should've had some week one leniency in there. But I am not going to go changing that now, so unless your opponent(s) are happy for you to have your team as per the local comp, you'll score 500 for this round.

If they are prepared to do that it'd be excellent, if not l'll just have to cop it sweet unfortunately.

The Proposed Multiplier
Worlds: 1.00
Euros: 1.00
British: 0.61
Asians: 0.74

Last season we had: 1, 1.024, 0.6284 and 0.7460. When looking at the total points scored across the CL group stages, everything with those multipliers worked out to be pretty even (Euros outscored Worlds without the multiplier amazingly). So just a few tweaks to those numbers is the plan. Any major objections do speak up soon.

This is very much last minute, but was the multiplier calculated from the top 8 teams participating, or from all the teams in the comp? I can't remember if it was last year or the year before, but the competition was just flowered because (worlds?) had such a massive scoring discrepancy between first and last that it skewed it so the top 2 worlds teams were juggernauts with the multiplier having being calculated taking the terrible scores of the bottom of their ladder.

If not, it might be too late to tweak it. I should have mentioned this sooner but I've been so under the pump recently.

Also- with naming more than 3 emergencies, it seems savage the whole team is forfeited, wouldn't the emergency line being forfeited make more sense (that being said, your comp, I know the other comps are a bit more strict than euros :P )
I looked at all the scores from the Champions League Group Stages last year. And when you added up all the scores (using the respective comp scoring) to make them all even the multipliers we needed is pretty much what we had last season. There were one or two teams that were outliers in the scoring, which is why I tweaked it slightly, but otherwise I think these numbers work quite well.

As for the last point, follow the rules and you'll have no problems! Everyone here should be competent enough to follow simple rules :) (And there's nothing wrong with asking me a question if you want clarification either!)
Oh yeah I forgot to mention it, I thought I had written it down somewhere in here. But the Euros multiplier is 1.01, not the even 1.00. I was fairly sure I had posted it, obviously didn't.

Hey Champs League coaches,


As you've all probably noticed, I've been super slack with the CL scores this season. Unfortunately I don't think the time allows me to put in the effort required to make this function. I'm really disappointed that I've had to do this because I really enjoy running it and wanted to make it bigger than it was last season with extra games, in hindsight that was probably a bad idea. Time just hasn't been kind to me with uni and my other work, and then when I get around to looking at fantasy football obviously the salary cap games take priority.

Moving forward I don't know what you guys want to do, whether someone wants to take over and catch up on the last two weeks and continue on, or whether someone wants to run something else completely starting post byes (or whether nothing happens at all). I have the stuff I did do on an excel spreadsheet. Just send me a message if you do and I'll give you what I have, I am prompt on responding to PMs.

So yeah, I'm sorry again. There isn't really an excuse for it and I'm angry at myself for resorting to this, but I don't have the time to put in the effort that it deserves.

This comp would require a lot of administration, so an understandable decision PB.

I'd love to take over, but there would no way I could find the time  :(
