Sign-ups for season 3 are now open! If you would like to take part please do two things:

1) Add yourself to this list. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=10)
2) PM your email address to me (optional, but it will be very useful if I need to give you a nudge).

Season 3 will begin on Monday 03 October and will last two weeks, so please don't sign up if you expect to be unavailable during that period. You will probably be required to play between 4 and 6 games (division sizes are subject to the number of players). Rules are mostly as in previous seasons, and will be posted later this week.

New and old players are all welcome! No experience required, and weaponry will be provided. Sign up! (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=10)

Not using the built-in tourney system?

Edit: Oh. It's not there. Never mind. I've signed up, by the way. I'll be collating and curating the videos again, you lucky people.

Yes, they put the patch live last week but had problems, so rolled it back. If it's back during the week we'll see if it's suitable.

Yes, nicely bumped! Only eleven sign-ups so far, and we need more - I'll PM the remaining old players when I have a minute, but it would be great to see some new faces too. If you own Frozen Synapse sign yourself up: we're a friendly bunch, if you discount the whole shooting-people-in-the-face-with-rocket-launchers thing, and it's a great way for new players to get some good experience.

We'll be playing on UK1, but full instructions will be posted later in the week (if you're curious you can have a look at the season 2 thread (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?1158-Frozen-Synapse-dark-extermination-league-season-2.-All-welcome%21) - S3 will be much the same).

Super-dooper!

So, is this a manual tourney thing, whereby people report results somewhere or does FS have a built in tourney system?

WombatDeath
30-09-2011, 05:44 PM
Well, good question. There is an in-game tournament system which briefly went live (for Steam versions) last weekend, only to be rolled back because it didn't work. It may or may not be live now, but I'm a bit reluctant to use it until it's had time to bed in.

Which is a long-winded way of saying that yes, season 3 will be run manually. All will become clear when I post the rules.

Season 3 has now begun! Due to all the new faces we now have five divisions, so thanks to all those who've signed up. The new players have been added to the league in the order in which they registered their participation. You can now start issuing challenges and playing your matches - click here to see the league tables (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=12). Players from previous seasons: please note that we are now playing four men per side in each match; other rules are unchanged.

Important: each player has the responsibility of challenging every player above him/her in the appropriate division. That means that, for instance, cimethink in division one has to issue five challenges: to Web_cole, ColOfNature, WombatDeath, Jolima and SFLegend. Heliocentric, in division one, only has to issue one challenge (to Desvergeh).

If you are unsure who you should be challenging, look at the second tab on the spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=13). You need to issue a challenge for each game in which you are Player 1. If you're still unsure, post in this thread or send me a PM.

Game rules and league procedures

1) Each game must conform to the following settings:

Mode: Dark Elimination
Map type: symmetrical
Turn limit: eight turns
Turn duration: five seconds per turn (i.e. 5000 milliseconds - this is the default setting)
Visibility: vis at time zero
Team strength: four men per player
Server: UK1

Any game that does not conform to these rules will be void and must be replayed. Please see the next post if you're not sure how to create a game with the correct settings, and post in this thread if you are in any doubt.

2) After creating each game on server UK1, the challenger must state the challenge in this thread. Format: "[Player1] has challenged [Player2] in game [game ID]".

Example: "WombatDeath has challenged ColOfNature in game 123456".

3) After each game has been completed, the player accepting the challenge must report the result in this thread. Standard format: "[Victorious player] has defeated [defeated player] in game [game ID] by [number of men killed by victorious player] men killed to [number of men killed by defeated player]".

Example: "ColOfNature has defeated WombatDeath in game 123456 by 4 men killed to 2".

In the event of a draw, the format is "[Challenging player] and [challenged player] have drawn in game [game ID], killing [number of men killed per player] men each."

Example: "ColOfNature and WombatDeath have drawn in game 123456, killing 3 men each".

I will update the spreadsheet with the result of each game.

4) Challengers may start issuing their challenges from today (Sunday 02 October). All games must be completed by the end of Sunday 16 October, British Summer Time.

5) We're all reasonable people, probably, so some flexibility will be applied. If you're going to be on holiday, or dead, or otherwise restricted in your availability, please post in this thread and we will try to accommodate you as far as is reasonably practical.

6) Try to start your games in the first week and finish them early. Players leaving it to the last minute to issue a challenge or submit orders risk forfeiting the game. If any game is unfinished by the deadline I will use my discretion and award points to one, both or neither player, depending on the circumstances.

7) This rule used to state the criteria for promotion and relegation between divisions. I've since decided that a formal rule doesn't really make sense given that the participants change wildly each season, but results this season will be reflected in the rankings for next season (with new players added to the bottom of the league).

8) Any circumstances not catered for in these rules will be handled according to some combination of common sense, consensus, whimsy and iron-fisted authoritarianism.

Finally, a polite reminder that although PMing your email address to me is optional, it will make organisation easier so please consider doing so if you haven't already.

Good luck!

How to create a game with the correct settings

This may be useful to those newer to Frozen Synapse:

1) Log in to server UK1.
2) Click the 'Multiplayer' button at the top of the screen
3) Click 'Create a game'
4) Set the game mode to Dark Extermination
5) Click the 'Advanced setup' button
6) Ignore the scary warning and click 'OK'
7) Click the 'Generate symmetrical' button
8) If you get a silly map, or if you don't have four men per side, go back to (7) and repeat until you're happy
9) Click the 'Submit' button
10) Ensure that the 'Game mode' is set to 'Extermination'
11) Ensure that the 'Vis mode' is set to 'Vis at time zero'
12) Ensure that the 'Turn limit' is set to 8 (and the 'Turn length' to 5000, which is the default)
13) Enter your opponent's username
14) Enter 'RPS Dark Extermination League' or something suitable so that your opponent knows it's for this league
15) Click the 'Submit' button
16) Take your first turn and note the challenge in this thread, using the format in point 2 of the post directly above this one.

So, this is really bad timing but my computer basically just packed in today. I don't really have anything else capable of playing FS, however I have ordered new parts and will hopefully have a brand spanking new machine up and running before the end of the season. So yeah, sorry about that guys :/

On the spreadsheet you'll see that division 3 looks like this:

Desvergeh
Heliocentric
Aluschaaf
Labbes
Windward
Solaris999

So you need to challenge everyone above you (i.e. Desvergeh) and you will receive challenges from the four players below you.

WombatDeath

I don't mind you using a different server if the other players agree (in this thread) to use a different one. In the absence of that agreement games are invalid unless played on UK1.

Spreadsheet fixed, thank you!

Sadly, Majic you're 22 now :) Also Wombat, it's just a crazy thought, but i noticed that on the seasons after those 6 games that was it. I would suggest, if there would not be any objections, since its quite a few groups, after playing those 6 games and having the leaders of the groups, we could rearrange to 1 more division with the group top players. Could give the season a bit more of a challenge in the end just for fun.

Last two games for me!

This is regarding game 313754. I haven't taken my turn yet, but that's because I'm running into a really odd issue.

261

This is what happens from my side if I try to run my dudes behind the building. It won't let me, and if I try forcing them to by using shift-orders they'll get stuck.

262

The problem is that this doesn't happen on Sarigs' side (in the simulation, his gunner walks through the gap without a hitch)

263

I normally wouldn't bring it up and just play through, but on this particular map it's a pretty big deal, since it essentially forces three of my troops to use the exit facing light cover, in full view of a grenade launcher, if I ever want them to exit the building they start in.

Sarigs, could you check and see if you get this as well? Wombat, what's your ruling if this gets confirmed? In the meanwhile, I'll hold off on submitting my turn.

WombatDeath
05-10-2011, 11:28 PM
That's interesting, haven't seen that before. Let's do it this way:

1) If Sarigs hasn't yet submitted his first turn, AND you both agree to this option, you can continue this game with the affected exits off-limits to both players (you'll need to state here whether or not any other exits are similarly affected).

2) Otherwise the game is void and Sarigs needs to issue another challenge.

WombatDeath
05-10-2011, 11:36 PM
Half-way through week one, more or less, and it's interesting to note the number of challenges issued per division so far:

Division 1: 4 challenges
Division 2: 5
Division 3: 7
Division 4: 9
Division 5: 11

I seem to remember something similar happening last season too. Anyway, well done to D5; that's at least one game completed for each of you. More challenges in the higher divisions, please!

Hi, I'm not sure if it's effecting me to be honest, I finished my turn when I set up the game originally I'm not sure if I could get out of that exit.

Non of my guys took that exit out so depending on how, might be best to void the game if we can Wombats happy with that, on the one hand we're in a position to play on and I dont use that exit (which I'd need to double back to use anyway) but on the other hand as I've already submitted and you know that there's only one other door I can be making a break out of.

I'm easy either way!

So if I get this right (sorry, haven't had my morning coffee), you've submitted your turn but none of it involved having your guys using that exit, correct? Assuming you didn't plan your turn on me using the exit in question, which would put you at a disadvantage, I'm OK with keeping this map. The "alley" at the back of our respective buildings would be forbidden for both of us.

My challenge from Kop101 only has 3 men per team...

Should I just play this game, or rechallenge with the correct settings?

tpiece I've got a challenge from you, but you're not in my division, I'll gladly play but it wont be making much difference in the season standings.

imirk, just making friends and if possible shooting them. the challenge is outside of the current league round. I just picked some names and made a few challenges.

Sorry for the lame hiding in the end, but I had no chance of killing your last gunner when he was out in the open like that. Would have still tried if I had been able to come up with any projected way to succeed.

That's alright, I actually didn't realise I should play more aggressively (so you can't hide) until it was too late. Other than that, it was a pretty cool match though.

Yeah it was a good match.

Personally I think you did the best you could at the end there. If you had been more aggressive I could have either blown you up, or won the short range battle with the shottie. Just unfortunately for you, you were one down on me.

Not my fault, on this occasion. The forum software seems to occasionally insert the RPS url alongside the correct one. It's happened to me several times now, but I usually notice before anyone else does!

I told my rocket guy "If you see the shotgunner, just run! Don't try to make a heroic stand, run and wait for support." Unfortunately, he thought he could blast him away. ;)

Speaking of Robmonster: Robmonster, If you're reading this, I got your challenge, but it appears as though you haven't submitted your first turn yet. Did you forget about that or were you just too busy to get it done? Either way we've still got a week, but I'd rather we got this started quickly, because I like to take my sweet time thinking turns over :p

(and spoon, I'm waiting on your challenge as well).

spoon challenged macewindow in game 332346
(2 machine guns and 2 rocket launchers, might be a short game:))



310274 is between Gruzcik and spoon. Did you mean 315356? I've uploaded the video of that one for now.

Also! Loads of new videos on the YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/RockPaperSynapse)! There's a playlist for each group in the league, or just browse around.

yea, my bad

Leave it, it's not valid - Kop101 needs to reissue the challenge with the correct number of men. If the challenge isn't reissued you win by default.

Quantumnerd appear to be AWOL from division 4 any chance of a reminder email or something being sent, that would be choice. Quantumnerd has played one game but i think that's the one where he was challenged so he hasn't sent any of his own.
I've established email contact but it doesn't seem to have resulted in any challenges yet. We'll see what happens this week, and if the challenges aren't issued you'll all get a default win.

Cheers WombatDeath, thanks for the game Dr. Shenanigans sorry i wasn't much challenge, i thought i'd planned my first turn well but ended up just overthinking it.

Dr. Shenanigans

Thank you, too.
To be fair, if your shotgunner had looked just a bit more to the side, my left team would have been wiped out.

Yes, these were my very first MP games. However, I've played quite a bit of the single player campaign beforehand, so I already did have some experience with the game.

Season 3 is drawing to a close and we still have quite a few outstanding matches. Most divisions have one absent player whose games I won't list, and a few others which can hopefully be completed soon:

Division 1
cimethink vs. ColOfNature
Jolima vs. ColOfNature
Missing, presumed dead: Antilope

Division 2
ChainsawHands vs. imirk
Missing, presumed dead: Majic

Division 3
Solaris999 vs. Aluschaff
Missing, presumed dead: Windward

Division 4
Missing, presumed dead: quantumn3rd

Division 5
Gruzcik vs. Robmonster
sp00/V vs. Robmonster
kop101 vs. Robmonster
(I'm giving Robmonster the benefit of the doubt since he's completed two games)

Please could you try to get these games completed by the end of this weekend. If you need a short grace period let me know and we'll try to accommodate you. The absent players still have a chance to get involved again, but you'll need to be quick!

Just to keep you posted, I'm currently waiting on Robmonster's 3rd turn. I hope we'll be able to complete our match in time, but it's starting to look somewhat unlikely.

Guess I'll follow that lead: Jolima has defeated ColOfNature in game 321473 with 4 kills against 2.

Still waiting for antilope to take turn 3 in our game where I have 2 men left against his 1.

The results are in and the spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvmG4SoJhEYbdFgtbjN3VFE4OUxQTEtSLWVoVmJGX 3c&hl=en_GB#gid=12) has been updated with the (provisional) final scores. A few caveats:

1) I've decided to give the Solaris / Aluschaaf match until the end of tomorrow (Monday) to complete. If it doesn't I will make a decision.

2) After doing the results for division 2 I remembered that Radiant / Majik was intending to finish them this weekend. Those matches are currently listed as a forfeit, but if any games are completed by the end of tomorrow I will adjust the results accordingly.

3) I may have cocked something up or made an unreasonable decision, so please shout if you think I've got something wrong.

With that out of the way, thank you all for taking part! Congratulations to the division champions, and particularly to Heliocentric and Antares (MaceWindow) who are undefeated this season. Commiserations to ComradePenguin, who was tied with echodb on both overall points and goal difference at the top of division 3, and lost out by a single point using the 'For' tie-breaker.

Thank you as always to ColOfNature for his great work on the videos. All of you are encouraged to post here if you have any particularly entertaining matches which should be highlighted on the Youtube channel.

Finally, comments / suggestions for season 4 are always welcome. Sign-ups will open in roughly a week!

I know the feeling - I just noticed that I killed a grand total of five men in all four games that I played this season. Oh well, there's always next season to either redeem or pile further ignominy upon myself.

I suggested that bloody tie breaker. So far it has caused me to come bottom last season to ChainsawHands and second this. I suggest we scrap it an replace it with a head to head rule....oh wait I got thrashed by Echodb and ChainsawHands....erm ranked by how far south the bird in your username dwells? Good season though and congratulations to Echodb, given the beating he gave me he more than deserves to win. It would be a bit embarassing if a division was won by a man who moves the wrong side on turn 1.

I note in Division 4 there were a lot of drawn games. Was this due to it being too conservative? Might it be worth offering a bonus for exterminating the whole of the other side? An extra point might be too much but perhaps a goal difference boost bringing it inline with the scores FS itself gives?

I'm up for a game whenever, so I'm happy to jump in for another round over the next week (and sign me up for the next season too) :)

I had two drawn games, both of which were after ending up with either one shotgunner each, or one MG each, both times with a known position of the other. There was no feasible way to win either game - if I walked out of the room, I would have died and lost, if he walked in, he would have died and lost.
