Time https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20170715T190000&p1=1440 About I wish to test the ranked match feature of the draftpick plugin while it's fresh on my mind. How ranked match works: You join NF at the start of the round. You can then join squads depending on the player number. >16 players: 2 man squads, >28 3 man squads, >40 4 man squads. The plugin will automatically decide teams based on each player/squads mmr. If you win a game you will gain MMR/leagues, else you will lose them. You can use !emprank !commrank !top rank to see how you are doing. Placement After your first ranked match you will be placed into a league based on a conservative estimate from your main MMR. The benefits: - No stacking - Teams are completely decided by the system. - No password - Completely open to everyone - No waiting around - no steam groups or communication software. -Doesn't matter if you join late or in the middle of a game. I hope to play 3-4 ranked matches all depends on the day. Maps con_district (warmup: starts at 18: 30 UTC) emp_bush (admin will need to reveal BE start position) emp_homeland (< 34 players) emp_chain (>= 34 players) emp_massacred emp_coast Let me know if any of these maps are crashy ones, I'm not up to date on that. Server Mr. X hardcore empires Fallback If things go wrong we will revert to captain draft with the same maps. Extra Info Hopefully the teams will be relatively balanced. Of course the system isn't perfect and due to high team sizes and long games the ratings are not going to be super accurate. However because the winning team's ratings increase and the losing team's ratings decrease, after the first few games I would expect the team selection to become much more balanced. There is a slight random factor in the team selection and because players MMR changes every game the teams that are selected should always be different.
