CANNOT MISS!

« on: January 23, 2018, 10:01:53 AM »

Hey all :)

I'm about to get stuck into making the fixture for 2018. It's our "2 year reset", so we aren't bound by who hosted who last year and who was our neutral opponent.

As you know, Round 1 has been released by meow (which I pre-approved). This features all of our neutral opponents for the year, and also for next year.

But any requests for the remaining 16 rounds? I can't guarantee you'll get it, but I'll try my best.

If we could not end the season with the Beijing, Berlin, Christchurch, NDT, Seoul, New York, Dublin and PNL again, that would be fantastic. :P 5 of those 8 were away too.

my first request would have been that i play NDT round 11 to 14 to build up tension. But sadly i have them round 1.

Purp i think this is a good idea for everyone.

Tier 1: Dublin, NDT, Seoul, Pacific, Berlin, Christchurch
Tier 2: New York, Toronto, Cairo, PNL, Beijing, Moscow
Tier 3 Rio, Mexico, Capetown, London, Tokyo, Dillos

R1: Neutral
R2: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R3: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R4: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R5: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R6: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R7: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R8: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R9: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R10: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R11: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R12: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R13: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R14: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R15: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R16: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R17: you play who you havent


The round 1 fixture will make this much more difficult though

the idea behind the tier system is that i think coming up against all the teams in your tier in a row was a silly idea.

1. playing teams in your tier is normally the most interesting so its stupid to have them all back to back.
2. a major injury could completely screw you if it hits when you are playing your tier or it could do little to affect you.

this will spread out the fun and also the injury risk.

This is 10% Luck , 20% New York
15% Gary Ablett finding the pill
5% PNL, 50% Who cares they aint Dublin
And a 100% reason to just stop you whinging about the game.

It nearly killed me, but I've done it. Believe me when I say I slaved over this!

Home games are still to be decided, but this is what I've decided so far:

- I liked Holz' tiered system, so I implemented it. However, a couple of slight changes had to be made to his idea:
   - because of that pesky neutral round... long story short, I had to promote Cape Town to Tier 2, and demote Moscow to tier 3. I just had to.
   - also because of that pesky neutral round (not hating btw meow, I still like your match-ups and appreciate the help), instead of:

R1: Neutral
R2: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R3: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R4: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
...
R14: 1 plays 3, 2 plays 2
R15: 1 plays 1, 2 plays 3
R16: 1 plays 2, 3 plays 3
R17: you play who you havent

It's now

Round 1, 5, 9, 13 and 17: 1v1, 2v2, 3v3
Round 2, 4, 7, 10, 12, 15: 1v2, 1v2, 1v2, 1v3, 1v3, 1v3, 2v3, 2v3, 2v3
Round 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 16: 1v3, 1v3, 1v3, 1v2, 1v2, 1v2, 3v2, 3v2, 3v2

It might make for some low-key rounds & high-octane rounds instead of a nice spread, but this is simply how it has to be done, if we were to keep that neutral round 1 fixture.

I'm so mentally drained. Fixturing might be the worst thing ever. I kinda just copied and modified ossies' 2012 fixture last year, this is the first one I did from scratch, and it was the worst.
