Ever since the new Leauge system was implemented and replace the standard leaderboards in the client the first few season people were proactivly playing to rise up thoght the ranks and more recently ve sen that for the 1v1 & 2v2 matchmaker space this has significaly droped of.
Aim of this post
The Aim of this posting it to preset My idea to update the leauge system into 4 Distiguised seasonal events thoughout the year were thier are some small insentives to actlault wanting to play.
- Give a reason to want to play 1v1 & 2v2
- Give a Goal to reach with custom avatars & prize pool
- More people playing the matchmaker
For now the aim would be to trial this out with 1v1 and if it something the community like we can expand this to the 2v2 system in the new year.
The New approach to the league system will be to have 4 season:
- Winter : 1st January - 28/29th February
- Spring : 1st April - 31st may
- Summer : 1st July - 31st August
- Autumn : 1st October - 30th November
Each season would happen around the same time each year. Each Season would be a 2 month period with a 1 Month Grace period in-between were other bespoke tournament can take place and give players a breck from the grid over the last 2 months.
Avatars & Prize pool
Thanks to @Fichom we have custom avatars for the top 4 brackets of the league being
- Master I
- Diamond I
- Gold I
And I've also spoke to the new Treasure of the association( @Deribus ) about using some FAF funds for a small prise pot for each event which would be $50 per event
Were open to any feedback you can provide us on the setup as id like to start the first seasonal event on the 1st of July so see if it will bring people back to playing on the 1v1 matchmaker more if their is a goal to work towards
