    Any particular reason? It's easier all round if we keep all the games on the same server, and UK 1 is the default.

    Wow, guys. Have you seen the people in division 4? Their ranks are: Majic (9), Satik (24), Henke (164). And a not-yet-ranked TomXJ. It makes our division 1 look bad :) I wish you luck TomXJ, you'll be playing against the world's elite.

    I'm excited for a great amount of people signing up for this one! Good luck to all of you, gents!

    Hmm. I didn't notice that, I just added people in the order they signed up if they weren't in last season. It seemed the fairest (and, crucially, easiest) way, but I guess it didn't give the most balanced divisions. I might add some weighting by global rank when people sign up. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Oh, and TomXJ: think of it as a trial by fire!

    Challenges:
    Satek 651429, 651435 (ignore 651431, messed up and made it Extermination)
    Majic 651425, 651440

    Would that be played in co-op? Haven't tried that mode yet but I guess it could be cool. :)

    Well, to be honest, this kind of setup makes sense. If you are new to the league, you have to fight your way to the top, starting at the rock bottom. Good players will end up in top division sooner or later.

    We have to respect the veterans of rps synapse league, anyways :) Our places in 1,2, and 3 divisions are hard earned and all the newcomers will have to snatch them from our dead-cold fingers :)

    The idea of people relegating and gaining promotions to upper divisions based on their performance would be really cool to implement on a permanent basis (i think it's being done by ColOfNature after some, if not all seasons). we have a permanent roster now, anyways.

    Not really. We are just talking about a separate table with results of all players from a certain nation. So we can have an individual champion in every league and a champion team.

    Yep. I'm currently top 10 in the global leagues on UK1.
    It's a fair rating. I've got nearly 700 hours played to get there I don't really want to mess it up playing fun comps.

    Although I'm pretty rusty I hope you understand.

    Are the rankings different on different servers? TIL. Anyway, I don't think you're going to mess it up playing any of us, and I'd rather keep us all on one server. If it's that important then in future seasons we could use a less populous server. I'm not sure how playing in a competition is any different to playing normal games though.

    Lol it's a long story.

    Essentially there's a false score weighting given to gametypes to encourage people to play some of the weirder ones.

    I only ever played Dark Elimination.
    Due to the way that is scored and the amount of games I have played I can't play anymore without losing points.

    To gain points I have to clean sweep every game, I can't lose a man and I can't play anyone lower ranked than me.

    Charge games on the other hand you can play far less games and very quickly gain points [everyone else in the top ten almost exclusively plays charge]

    I only play dark elimination. Man's game.

    I figured this was happening when I went from no2 or 3 in the world to 8-9 in the space of a few [winning] games.

    It's actually quite heart breaking as I bloody love playing this game and I had to stop.

    Here's a thread about it.

    Wait, what? You might gain extra internet points by playing modes other than Extermination, which other people are doing anyway - people who may not even be active players - and you object to this? So much so, in fact, that you voluntarily limit the fun you can have in the game? Competitive people baffle me.

    Fine, though. If your opponents are willing to rechallenge you on another server then go right ahead. Let me know what server you end up on so I can find the game to upload it.

    I stopped for a bunch of other reasons too; it was stressful and also dude... SEVEN HUNDRED HOURS.
    I can't even count to 21 without taking off my shoes and underwear.

    There's a mental image I didn't need.

    I wasn't belittling your achievement - you're obviously way more dedicated to the game than I could ever be. If you're not playing competitively any more then you're welcome to join us for sits shits and giggles. I don't want to move the whole kit and caboodle to a different server, but if you ask nicely I'm sure your opponents will humour you.

    There's always one awkward bugger... :-)

    RADIANT YOU DIVA I'M NOT CHANGING A THING! :U

    You're simply going to have to play me and win. :)

    (also have you tried creating a second FS account? Maybe that could work.)

    Aha! Somehow I entirely missed the new season starting. Glad you set up that permanent roster last season! I'll get my games started at some point today. Looking forward to this as I haven't played charge for quite a while but it's one of my faves.

    Good to see the player numbers doing good, both in this league and on FS in general.
