The Carcassonne Central Divisional League
« on: November 06, 2018, 08:46:06 AM »
As promised in my previous post last week http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=4110.0, we are putting together a league which is suitable for all Carcassonne players, whether 'Grand master' or 'Beginner' and everything in between, and this is the official notification that it is to begin on Saturday 1st December 2018.

How does it work?

The league will comprise a set of seeded 'divisions' where each division will contain players who are about equivalent in standard. This should benefit all parts of the ability spectrum. Every 3 months, a new season will be run, and the top two from each division will be promoted, and the bottom two will be demoted. Every division will contain 6 players, so 2 players will therefore remain in the same division for another season.

The league is different from all our previous tournaments in that the objective is not necessarily to win individual games, but to accumulate 'league points'.

League points are gained as follows:-

1 points for a win
0.5 points for a draw
0 points for losing
1 point for winning the most road points (0.5 if a tie)
1 point for winning the most city points (0.5 for a tie)
1 point for winning the most cloister points (ditto)
1 point for winning the most farming points (ditto)

The other difference in this tournament is that each player 'adopts' their own expansion, which they will play in all 5 games in that division. Any bonus points from these expansions (such as trade goods) will not generate league points, but will assist in winning games. This means that an individual can gain more league points by having the majority of city points, road points and farming points, despite losing the individual game.

If you would like to join in the tournament, please 'sign up' by responding to this post before midnight on Friday 23rd November. This will allow us time to sort out the starting leagues for participants and to publish the full set of rules.

Assuming that all goes as expected, there will be 4 seasonal leagues per year, starting with Winter 2018 (December - February), then Spring 2019 (March - May) etc. I am hoping that we will be able to start off with at least 4 divisions (if not, more).

All games will be played on JCloisterZone which, for those who do not yet know, is completely free and runs on Linux, Mac, and even Windows.

We hope that, even if you have only just started playing Carcassonne, you will want to use this as a way of learning to play and meeting other players of a similar ability.

Please get signing up by responding to this post.

Have you worked out something for covering dropouts, both in terms of a session, and between sessions? If the latter in the lowest league it might be Ok, but say someone in league 2 of 4 is unable to continue?
Completed Expansions: The Coast (CI/II), Fluvium (CII), Wells (CII)
In Development: Stone Circles (CI/II), Woodcutters/Forests/Autumn (CII), Cliffs & Waterfalls (CI), Rivers & Lakes (CI), Harvest (CI/II), WinterEdge (CI), WinterCoast (C1/II), Catch Of The Day (C1/II/W1)

That is what we are working on tomorrow. If you have ideas, please come and join us in the Slack chat room. It would be good to see you there.
