Seasonal Leagues

Wednesday June 21, 2017 | by IncaWarrior

Season 1 Begins July 1

We’re introducing seasons into the Populous league along side the standard long running league table. Season 1 will begin on July 1st and continue 3 months. Every quarter the new season will start.

In the new season, everyone will be reset to wildman, BUT you will get some credit for your standing in the previous season. It will be as follows:

  • A player will have 30% of their difference in mu from the start, essentially compressing the league.
  • Sigma will be increased to 6.0
  • Players will start out with credit for 5 games so they will only need to play 5 games to get a new rank
  • Players without previous season standings will start out as normal
  • Season 1 will use the the overall league as the previous season.

Updated Grade Distribution

Grades are going to be based on percentiles similar to how they were for the traditional league several years ago.
The top 10% of players will be shaman (up to 20), the top 1/3 of shaman players will be Shaman+ (up to 3)

Other ranks will be 20% of the non-shaman players each split equally into 3 for Grade+, Grade, and Grade-

Grades are calculated when you finish a game as expected and are re-calculated at the end of the day for everyone, including those that don’t play
