The league is facing a rocky time at the moment, with an unclear direction for season 2 and a growing despondency amongst the clans involved. Now is the time for us to decide where this league is headed, and we need this community to help us to do that. Please let us know your opinion of the format ideas below by voting in the poll and, if possible, making a post. We absolutely value the feedback of every individual, and the results of this poll will have a direct impact on the future direction of the league. Thankyou. EDIT: The "Both Formats" option means running both the ladder and the global domination game-types in parallel. Format 1: Ladder Clans take part in a classic ladder-style tournament, according to an established format (such as the ELO rating system). The objective is to establish which clan is the best. Format 2: Global Domination Two factions are at war. You might have heard of them before; they're called the Northern Faction and the Brenodi Empire. In this game style, you will be taking a side in this war. But you're not alone: players operate in teams of 10, and all the teams put together make up the two factions. Each team must elect an Officer, and out of these each faction must elect a General. These people act as representatives in all official business. So what are you fighting for? Well, the game takes place on a map, in a similar style to strategy games such as RISK. But don't let this put you off, this is nowhere near as complicated. The map is divided into territories, and in the beginning each faction owns half of these (literally, BE would own the East, NF would own the West. The starting territories aren't scattered). Factions take it in turn to attack territories (attacks are simply matches on the official league server). If the attackers win, they get to take control of that territory. If the defenders win, then everything stays as it was. The ultimate goal is to fight a path to the other faction's capital, which is a special territory lying deep within their starting area. If this is lost, then the season is over, and the winners declared. Then the whole thing can start all over again! Unlike the current season, territories are no longer tied to maps. This means that any match can be played on any map. Each faction can also choose any of their teams to represent them in a match, which means that any team can play any other team (provided they are on opposite factions). Matches can take place at any time (provided they are scheduled according to the official process), and new teams can also join the action at any time. There are still some creases to iron out, and the format is still under development. If you want to take part in the discussion, visit the official league forums.
