    Right, anyone still at it has until midnight tomorrow to finish up. Plenty of time! If any of our missing persons were to show up they could conceivably still romp to the top of their league. I'm not going to hold my breath, but still...

    Anyway, the final results will be posted tomorrow night. Season 18 will start on 2 March.

    Wow, I just saw ColofNature edit the tables live. It was a sheer joy to see my name go from 2nd to 1st place! For the first time in my life I've manged to grab Division 1 title.

    I want to thank all players for this tremendous season. Cimethink, Maetco, DeVadder, Rodeoclown - games against you are always fun and super tense! Thank you for being such great opponents!

    What about Division 2 title? Bonusavepilot, ColOfNature, are you guys going to have a tie-breaker game or just declare 2 champions?

    I don't mind sharing the title, unless bonuswavepilot wants to challenge me to a decider.

    Will you both then head into Division 1? Scozzers never showed up for League 1 anyways, so he must be relegated in my opinion (nothing personal, scozzers).

    First things first: Congratulations BigBobr99!

    Then to business, was there a consensus (or did we even go for one?) how we'll play in the future? This question includes both the mode to play and about whether to have mirror-matches (and the number of matches in a season).

    Indeed, congrats to BigBobr - nicely done.

    I don't think anyone had anything to say about my suggestions about next time, so I'll repeat it here and we can see if anyone objects. Going forward:

    • divisions will generally be 6 or 7 players each unless there are an awkward number of players. Certainly no bigger than 8, no smaller than 5.
    • we'll do away with the pairs of matches. Symmetry seems to have fallen out of favour, and the natural balance of the generated games tends to mean games are fair. However:
    • if you are challenged and you feel that the game is unbalanced, you may re-challenge your opponent on the same map but with the starting positions reversed, and your opponent (i.e. the initial challenger) must accept this.
    • at the end of each season the bottom player (or two players - I haven't decided for sure yet) in each division will have their position swapped with the top player (or two) in the next division down. (The reason I'm toying with the idea of two players moving that this ought to ensure that if the size of the division changes at least one player will move up and one will move down - although it may mean one moves one way and two or three move the other. It would also have the advantage that it would keep the people in the divisions changing around, so you don't end up playing the same 4 or 5 people every month.)
    • anyone who signs up for the first time and doesn't play any of their matches will be summarily removed from the list. They may add their names again, if they notice.
    • I've added a simple weighting to the game mode votes (-5 for the last mode we played, -4 for the one before that, etc) to stop us from playing the same modes all the time. Upload is now in the lead for season 18.

    How does that sound?

    Good job defeating me in game 663971 DeVadder.

    FYI Upload games go very quickly (most are 2-3 turns I've found), so having 8 people per division is easily handled.

    Congrats to the division winners, especially BigBobr99 who wiped the floor with me.

    This was by 90 points, for the spreadsheet.

    Sounds good. I support the idea of relegating/promoting 2 players. It would keep things interesting and there would a balance (bottom 2 would be relegated, top 2 promoted and the middle 2 would remain). Oh and symmetry is so last season :)

    I almost forgot: time, gen'lemen, please! Well done again to BigBobr, and also to bonuswavepilot, Satek and zlabi!

    Shame there were so many no shows, but what can you do? Vingdoloras and Jaguar Skills, if you're out there: I've deleted you from the Roster, but you're welcome to put yourselves back on if you want join us next season.

    I've reordered the roster to show the starting order for season 18. If there are no additions it'll probably be 7 players each in divs 1 and 2, and 6 in div 3. Unless I change my mind again. But I probably won't. Unless I do.

    Upload still looks to be the a la mode mode. The season will commence on Saturday 2 March, and there's a thread for it over here.

    Yes, he's around. He's my nephew and I'll tell him there's a game waiting for him. Is it on Texas? He's probably never logged into that and he doesn't check e-mail due to young age :)

    Ah thanks!
    Yep it's on texas.

    Wait is he any good? How old is he?
    I'm not looking to get whooped by no child! It's why I stopped playing counterstrike damnit.

    2 players will definetly keep things fresh. I support that idea.

    What about voting for the best season 17 match video? It's tedious watching them all, but, say somebody (it can be me, I love watching other players' games) nominates 5 of them. People watch those 5 on youtube or ingame and vote.

    Sure why not. If someone (you) is willing to do the hard work I'll pitch in, watch the 5 matches and vote (if the voting is made easy).

    Oh with the match video it's better to use fraps rather than the inhouse youtube system.

    That way you get the natural round to round pauses and none of the zooming around that ruins watching good matches unfold.

    If it's too much work for Col we can always split the work between regulars.

    If I know I have enough time to play the season I know I can record matches using my copy of fraps [I watch a fair few anyway]; so I don't mind doing some.
