Cavalry Champions League - Season 2 | Announcement Thread
« on: July 16, 2019, 05:45:21 am »


Introduction and Thank you's!

Welcome to the official thread of the Cavalry Champions League - Season 2. Myself and Stephan are super excited to be reviving this League for a second iteration. Anyone who participated in the first season will no doubt remember the feeling of disappointment when the League had to be ended so abruptly, but even having said this, was easily one of the most enjoyable and professionally hosted leagues to date. The first iteration ran smoothly and was presented very meticulously to us all, and we hope to be able to do Tardet and Exofrance proud by doing the same with this new season, no doubt it will be difficult to match the hosting skills the previous organizers possess, but we will give it our best shot. Myself and Stephan both have experience hosting events and tournaments, however neither of us have took on a project of such magnitude, so i will ask now that you bare with us and forgive any minor hiccups that may happen along the 6-8 weeks this tournament will run for.

I want to say a personal thank you to Tardet and Exofrance on behalf of myself and Stephan for allowing us access to the resources of the first season (Most notably the rules) and of course, the amazing sub board which would have been almost impossible for us to acquire for our own league. You no doubt have made this whole process a lot quicker and so much easier for us to set up, so we can't thank you enough for that.

This Cavalry Champions League is in direct line with the now well-established Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League. While the CNWL has proven to be the most successful regimental contest for years among the cavalry community, we did not carry the wish to host something which did not necessarily belong to us. The CNWL remains a project which should only be hosted by Erik or by someone he deems worthy of taking over. Moreover, the Cavalry Champions League should bring a few changes compared to the previous editions of the CNWL. In practice, it doesn't modify drastically the whole concept but it brings in new features which could possibly alter the nature of a competition such as the CWNL. We hope to be able reaching the same level of quality observed during previous editions of cavalry leagues, but for many reasons, we prefer hosting a brand new tournament which should give us the required freedom to carry on with the aforementioned changes. That way, if someone wishes to take over the organisation of the CNWL later on, he or she won't be impacted by the result of this tournament.

The Cavalry Champions League - Season 2 will be played with 2 leagues, an upper and lower league. [L1] + [L2]

Reasoning
Originally mine and Stephan's idea was to create our own Regimental Cavalry League, which used two leagues similar to the CNWL. When Tardet suggested to us the idea of creating a second iteration of the CCL, we though it was a great idea. Of course, the last season was one group of arguably the top 8 cavalry regiments in the community at that time, however since then we believe balances have shifted, and there has been a rise of new promising cavalry regiments/detatchments that have dipped their foot into the competitive 1v1 scene. Due to this we decided to keep the idea of two leagues, and implement it with the other changes the CCL made. We believe this will be a good way of bringing new talent into the competitive cavalry scene, and gives the 'weaker' regiments a chance at showing people their capabilities. Having said this, the second CCL with ultimately have two regiments crowned as champions at its conclusion [L1 and L2 champion] rather than just one, drawing similarities to CNWL's format.

The regiments participating in the Cavalry Champions League  - Season 2 will be selected via an invitational system.

Reasoning
Anyone who was a part of the first season of the CCL will know that the League unfortunately had to be cut short, through no fault of the organizers, but due to a regiment having to drop from the competition. Now this is a worry for any organizer, and is impossible to predict even in a league with only 8 regiments. Due to this, we are going to take great care in who we choose to invite, making sure to try our best to avoid a similar issue happening again. Due to the new format however, it is still possible to carry on if a regiment drops, although it's definitely not an ideal situation.

We will be using the same ID system as in the first season of the CCL, to track every player and avoid double regimenting.

Reasoning
As for each competition, double regimenting won't be permitted among the regiments participating in the CCL. In order to make sure we have the capacity to check any fishy behavior, we will ask every regiment to provide the administration with a roster including a unique ID for every single of their members, and this before the tournament starts.
[close]

At the beginning of each week, regiments will be given a deadline to organize their match, in order to avoid further conflicts resulting from a poor match organisation on both sides. If by the end of that deadline, matches haven't been clearly announced on the forums, an administrator shall be contacted to help to resolve the issue. If such issues happen too repetitively, the regiment(s) at fault will be facing punishment.

Reasoning
In the past, we saw unneeded drama taking place due to the poor organisation shown by several regiments. Organizing a match is the responsibility of both regiments yet sometimes, both leaders might either be negligent and/or busy which leads to unfortunate scenarios where the date has to be forced on one regiment, the match happens to be delayed, all in all resulting in the tournament being damaged as a whole. In order to avoid that, we'll be asking regiments to contact their opponents within a certain lapse time (most likely three days counting from the release of the weekly fixtures). If by the deadline, the match hasn't been organized, then the organisation should be able to help both regiments to schedule in time, on a date which fits them both.
