TC Proposal Log

 

This thread is intended for members of the community to make proposals to TC that they feel will improve our service.

 

TC will discuss the merits of the proposal in a Forum topic where questions can be asked and the pros and cons of each suggestion can be debated with the community. TC may also invite the community to take part in a poll or survey (these are very fashionable these days) to assess the strength of feeling of a particular proposal. Then once a proposal has been fully explored TC will vote internally and publish the voting results (by number only) and include their reasoning and comments alongside the decision. 

 

Any Forum member may make a proposal in this thread, even if they have not participated previously in a tournament. We would recommend that you include a summary of the advantages you feel that your proposal would bring and/or the problems it may address and ask that you allow two weeks for TC to respond. Excellent proposals will also contain resistance you anticipate the proposal may face and how you would respond to that.

 

This thread will retain any proposals, status of the proposal and TC decisions only - any discussion that occurs related to a certain proposal will be moved to the relevant Forum topic to keep this thread clean and easy to refer to.

 

If you have a smaller suggestion/criticism/idea/compliment/comment/rant/complaint/brainwave/accusation/query/question/protest or an opinion relating to tournaments - that you don't feel warrants publishing a proposal - then the Suggestions Box will remain open (link below) where TC will be happy to look at it.

if the Tournament Committee was my own business....
(since most of my clients were Greeks), surely a member of my business staff would be a Greek :)

The TC has over saturated the community with tournaments and there is no clear cohesive structure in which all the tournaments fit. There a number of tournaments that are uninteresting and the relation between various tournaments is too complicated. I suggest that the TC adopt a schedule similar to European football.

I suggest the following schedule:

1. PL League in the fall.
2. Holiday Challenge Cup
3. PL League in the spring with new divisions.
4. Champions League and World Cup in the summer.

Players should only advance within the PL league based on their performances in that tournament.

To get better American participation I suggest the following rules:

1. In games versus US-based players, all European players must provide 6 hours of availability on the weekend.
2.These time slots must be between 900 and 2200 in the American player's time zone.
3. In intercontinental matches, time slots proposed by European players during American business hours are not considered for determining scheduling effort.

I recommend that the TC not use Kleier-converted ELO because the methodology for the Kleier ratings is not published on his website. Therefore, the methodology behind the rankings and the validity of the ratings cannot be verified.

The initial CL groups should have 4 players. The number of players who can participate in the CL should be a multiple of 16. The TC should use qualifying matches and PL results to eliminate players before the tournament begins. This will make the CL be a special experience. Theoretically, the TC could could run a concurrent Euro League tournament.

Are STRs required to be a minimum of 2 hours?

It seems to me that a one hour minimum is preferable because it might allow players to propose additional windows on days when they have a limited amount of time to play.

 

You do not even need a minimum time slot.

Shortening minimum slots will actually increase availability as long as players are required to provide 6 hours of availability.
 
Availability is conditional. Let's say that we are considering my availability between 18 and 19 GMT. The likelihood that I can play between 18 and 19 GMT is probably higher if I can play between 17 and 18 GMT than if I cannot play in the preceding hour. This makes sense because if I am busy at work, with my dog or other activities, then there is a greater chance that I am still busy with those things in the proceeding hour.
 
Applying this logic to STRs, if I am unavailable in the first hour, then I am unlikely to be available in the second hour. Therefore, two separate intervals of an hour each that are separate, say 16-17 GMT and 20-21 GMT are more likely to result in an arrangement. Extending this, the TC does not needs mandate a minimum slot length because more proposed slots will make arrangement even easier.

I suggest that any player signing the Alias Register should state any account used in the previous 6 months, regardless of whether it has been deleted.

Adopt a 2-1-0 scoring system. I was initially against such a system but having given it some thought I believe that it is superior to 6-3-1. The Prof offers a good discussion here:

http://forum.strateg...-3-1/?hl=soccer

No shows and losses should be given the same score.

When settling tiebreak with this system, head to head should be the first criterion followed by total wins.
