EDIT: In less than a day, we've already had 7 teams sign up and we have more upfrags than ANY OTHER prospective league! Thank you for the support and happy gaming!
Hey guys, my birthday is in july and id really like it if you all could sign up for my new league im running called THE BILLDOZER SIXES LEAGUE(6DZR)
I know that theres a couple different leagues getting revealed right now and its really unfortunate because ive been tinkering with this post and getting things ready for about a month now in preparation of going live.
Heres what my league presents that is different, and in my opinion, superior to the other weak willed leagues being revealed in this delicate time.
Seeing as we are an NA only league our servers are confined to:
Matches will be played on LAN ONLY. YOU will be responsible for travelling to and from matches, however I am able to help you find where the servers are. Drug tests are required to be taken before matches. Players that fail will not be allowed to play in the upcoming match.
6DZR will be played with 4 Divisions.
Garbo is our bottom division, and for new players only. If you have ever played a season of 6DZR you will not be allowed to play in Garbo Division.
Sandbagger is our second division. Anyone with at least one season of experience is allowed to play in this division.
AAA is our third, and penultimate division. The top 8 teams in Sandbagger will be given the option at the end of the season to move up if they wish.
Finally, our top and most prestigious division is THE BILLDOZER PREMIERSHIP SUPER WIZARDS. This council of players make up the highest talent in the league. Do not take them lightly.
Any team that places top 8 in Sandbagger is given the option to move up to AAA. Should they choose to stay in Sandbagger, they are required to disband their team, choose a new alias, and sign an NDA confirming that they will not reveal their old identity to anyone.
The top 4 teams in AAA will be given one month to decide if they would like to pick up new players(2 maximum), and then will compete in a small, round robin group stage, followed by a semi final and a final to decide which two teams will move up to THE BILLDOZER PREMIERSHIP SUPER WIZARDS.
Any team that completes one season of Garbo (minimum of 8 matches) will be qualified to move up to Sandbagger, and will no longer be allowed to play in Garbo.
We have several formats available, and we hope that our players are excited to use them to their full potential to develop their gameplay.
The team that wins their season of THE BILLDOZER PREMIERSHIP SUPERWIZARDS will have all of their travel fees paid for in full, and each player who played in the final map of the grand finals will recieve 750 dollars and a date night with yours truly.
Second place will have half of their travel feels covered, and a demo review.
Teams that come in 3-4 will receive 25% of their league fees covered, and a lecture from me. I'm not mad, i just know that you can do better.
Any player that wants to view a game in their own game client may purchase a ticket to the game for 2.99. This will grant them a connect line to the STV, and access to a mumble to hear our casters commentating the game live. Optionally, you may purchase season tickets for 50$. This comes with a tag in your mumble alias showing your favorite team some support, as well as a decorative coaster with their logo.
However, marmaloo has access to all of our STVs for free.
Naturally, I will be in charge of all league decisions. I am much taller than sigafoo which means that i am smarter and more trustworthy. But dont let that make you think you dont have a voice. Once a week, we will be taking polls from the community on what they would like to see implemented into our league. We will take the top 3 options and hold votes on stream where players can vote YAY or NAY on introducing it to our league. In the event of a tie, a bot match of the fighting game M.U.G.E.N. will be used to decide whose idea will be used.
For every season that a team stays together (4 players or more from the previous season), they will have 10% taken off of their league fees. This is to encourage a healthier division for the players and a better path of growth for teams as opposed to individual members.
I intend to introduce advanced statistics in my league that may help players better understand their own performance and possibly isolate stand out players. Metrics such as Damage per Kill, Damage per Heal, and Midfight statistics will be available. Additionally, I am designing a metric to mimic the WAR statistic from Major League Baseball, to try and put a numerical value to a players performance over the course of a season compared to league average.
The first match of this season will be on July 6, my birthday. I hope you are all as excited as I am to take some important steps forward in Team Fortress 2 history, and help us better america.
