I just had an idea.
We already have site wide ladders and such. But what about leages.
My thought is this. In other sports there are leagues… in these there are reams of players who are compeating to be the top of these leagues.
So my suggestion is this. Is rhere a way that we could implamenr a leage system on OGS with teams of various sizes or skills… that can compete to be top of the site wide league. Pitting team against team, bringing people together, in a competative way to teach.
Teams should be no larger than 10 players, and no smaller than three.
Leages games are created when one leage member challenges another. You cannot challenge a member of your own team and expect to gain points for the team.
Scoring can be set in tables.
Win: 3 points
Loss: 0 points
Bonus points: is a weaker team mber beats a stronger leage member. The looser of the game can pick up a bonus point for completing a game within 5.5 points of the winner.
The more games your leage plays the more points they accumulate.
Each team is also given an average kyu or dan ranking. One team member cannot challenge another league with a ranking discrepency of more than three ranks so that everything remains fair and higher ranking teams dont accumulatw too many points by noob bashing.
There is more that can be done here i feel but i simply dont know anough about them. I also feel most of this could likely be made automatic. Though there are undoubtedly kinks in this i’ve not thought of.
Just an idea for OGS.
