The Killer Challenge Cup

Uprising v Revolution v Pocket Dynamos

Match will be played on the 22/11/15 @ 9.00pm

and

Firestorm Phoenix v The Professionals v Funky Pool Devils


Match will be played on the 15/11/15 @ 9.00pm

The final will be played with those 3 teams who qualify and each team will be allowed 5 players in the final.

These dates / times are final if any clan is unhappy with the decision please remember that participation in clan leagues is not compulsory they are welcome not to play.

I have tried for a few days to get agreement but I am not surprised that when some choose to dictate rather than to work with others we have went round in circles, I have looked at all messages and posts from the teams concerned to arrive at the dates / times above. If anyone wants to start accusing me of bias etc as has already been thrown my way please message me offline as if it is posted on the forums I will not think twice about removing a clan as I have a lot better things I could do with my time than to get involved in petty arguments and reading ridiculous posts that have no place on here and which are causing players to leave the clan leagues.

Thanks

Firestorm Phoenix v The Professionals v Funky Pool Devils

Pros
Firestorm
FPD


Well done Pros, Firestorm were very unlucky, only had 3 players and fresh's comp crashed early on, but legend_pot stayed in a long time.
Pros just managed to overwhelm the rest with 3 players (silent_hill, triple_b and dvz) staying alive till the end.
FPD were very unlucky too, scottyjnr held on quite late in the day as well.
Prompt start no arguing wooo.

Killer Cup Wildcard Playoff

1st - Uprising
2nd - Funky Pool Devils
3rd - The Revolution
4th - Firestorm Phoenix


Unfortunately, we only had 2 from Firestorm Phoenix as at 5 past their last player hadn't logged in so had to remake the room (and send 17 invites out!). Other than that it went smoothly.

Unfortunately for Firestorm they lost another player to a connection issue. I didn't see most of the start, but miss_harriet had an uphill task behind clifton from the very start and Firestorm was eliminated first.

Tip doctor ended up the last Rev, with 2 FPD (Seb out) and the 3 uprising looking very strong. Lost ric_flair to a random shot penalty, and then the Uprising players started losing a few lives between them to keep things interesting and turtle went out next to leave the teams at 2-1-1.

After a good 4 way battle, Uprising started to come out on top with 3 and 2 lives while the other 2 had one life each. Tip was the first to fall rattling a pot and then Uprising imploded to 1 life each and left fr34k_p0t with a black to take him to 2 lives. A nervy bit of play took it back to 1 a piece, but with another black left on for fr34k, he opted for a safer pot and ironically potted the white as well to finish the match unluckily for FPD.

Thanks guys for an entertaining match in the end! Commiserations to the three losing teams, but congratulations to Uprising for joining The Professionals and Pocket Dynamos in the final.

How about we have a format change for next season? I would prefer it as a league and not a knock out competition.

My idea:
Competition lasts 10 weeks and each week each clan selects two of their players to play the killer. The scoring system may be decided though

I did suggest a killer league in place of the SL league last season.
I think killer is fun, though there needs to be concrete and in my opinion strict rules whilst setting it up.
If its not strict you open yourself up to accusations of bias, where as if you stick to the rules to the tea all you have to do is show the rules (in theory didnt work completely for me )

I was thinking something similar but 2v2 knock out all the way through.

We had it on Snooker and works well, we had two games of 2v2.

1st = 2 points
2nd = 1 point

If you go down this path you MUST get rid of the arrangement scheme and let captains play when they like, If not it is the default time.

My idea wasnt 2vs2. What i mean is that each clan selects 2 players to play in the killer. So if we have 7 clans for example there will be 14 players playing in total.

Stuff killer what this site needs is a Doubles League. (Drawn at Random)

Killer should be kept just for fun. Not everything on this site needs to be competitive IMO.

I have an idea for a novel scoring system in Eri's format.

10 weeks, one preliminary game per week (Sunday at 9pm) with 2 players per clan. The winning player of each match qualifies for the final in the 11th week and cannot play in any of the other killer matches (so you get a good rotation of players and not just the same player(s) winning each time. The 10 winning players contest the final to determine the overall winner.

Plenty of tweaks you could add in here too to try and give a good spread of players and clans in the final:

Limit each player to 3 preliminary games, if they don't qualify after three then other players must contest in their place.

If a clan hits 5 players qualified for the final, the may then only enter 1 player per match to reduce the chance of once clan dominating the amount of players in the final.

To bring the final up to 15 players, hold 5 more games at an alternative time to the Sunday 9pm time. Either at an agreeable time for all captains (which may prove difficult) or a systematic time each week (so mid week afternoon, evening, night, weekend afternoon and evening).

Any qualifier who cannot make the final may have one player named as a replacement no later than 30 minutes before the final start time.

There's a novel, fresh idea which gives more players a chance to play and win. How do people feel about something like that?



What is wrong with it?
