HABEMUS KING!

“King of the Hill has a first King. It's a Queen! :smiley: A dominant Slaanesh Queen, muahahahaaaa!!!

Game started slow. We push them into the endzone. 0-1.
Then we answer super fast. 1-1.
Then a blitz for us, awesome! But somehow didn't get enough 3+ and 2+ in order to get it done.

Second half: They start to reduce our numbers quickly, and we have to run for it. 2-1.
They still got 4 turns to block our way to the throne. We gaze the lane free for a 2d blitz on the ball. Pow, recovery! Yeyyy, victory! or not? They hit my ball carrier and recover. I get another 2d on the ball. But pushfest! Reroll, Pushfest! Noooo!!
A strong move to their right almost lets the filthy rat escape. But... i got my mov8 daemonette and she got there, 1d blitz, no reroll left, it's a.... POW!!! Smile End.

Thanks for the game, Weresquid! ”

Let's see, if my queens can keep their a***** on the throne for enough time to claim the title.

It’s going fairly well!

We have filled all but one of the spots on the hill, and we have a King on top. 14 teams signed up, 17 games have been played. Communication seems alright I think, while there’s some confusion about specifics. I’ve been trying to make the group page more helpful, and learning things along the way.

Cool.

Is there a public way to see the games and challenges?

No. That would be nice, but since it’s a meta league...

Yeah, it's fun, communication is good, could be better with our own discord channel, i suppose.
spelledaren is helpful and communicates as much as needed.

Yeah, the general chat. But a channel of our own would help, imho.

You could maybe get the coaches to post their match results and challenges on a forum thread. Maybe this one.
That could help keep the league visible and maybe help recruitment.

Or someone could do it for them. Wink

[blatent plug]They could jazz them up a bit with an [SL] match banner[/blatent plug] Wink

e.g.

Kings of the Down Under

Yes, cool. I had opted against it as I thought it would get cluttered quickly. The pros are good visibility, the neg is that coaches need to do double work - as private PMs would still be required (not everyone will keep up with a forum thread).

But what does everyone else feel?

Season 1 has ended, the King of the Hill is Queens of the Hill - coached by MenonaLoco. Congratulations! Such an impressive run.

There are some rule changes to discuss before starting a new season.

#1 - each coach is allowed 1 team.
The previous version opened for 2 teams per coach, but everyone seems to agree that 1 will be better, and easier to manage.

#2 - changing the win condition to this:
After becoming King, win 2 games in that reign.
A reign is the unbroken row of games with the team as King. It's almost the same as now, just a little easier to understand, and draws don't help with winning the season.

#3 - A time limit for how long a team can wait to postpone a game.
Right now there is no such time limit, meaning that a team could possibly schedule a game for 14 days later, and that at the last day postpone the game for another 14 days, trapping the opponent for a very long time. This was not really intended, nor has it happened, but I don't want it to be possible.

Suggestion: To postpone a game the coach must reply that they want to postpone within 7 days of the challenge (or 7 days after their last played game, whichever gives more time).

Please add your own rule thoughts and suggestions if you have them.

Also: there should really be a throphy for this. I'm not good at these things, but if anyone would want to help out in this regard that would be awesome.

The TW limit for season 2 will be 1470 - chosen by the KotH by picking one of the Contenders, Fangorn Wrath.

The season will start somewhere around August 20.

Wait, so I can't enter with a 1480 team? NOOOOOOO (I don't actually completely understand who is allowed to enter into this.)

Nelphine, you can enter any SL-team at 1470k or less.
