I was sitting in my computer chair, watching LSV play an Extended 8-man when a light bulb went on in my head. I immediately messaged Roo with my plan. We talked briefly and he said that I should post my plan here.

So here is how it would work. Starting with the next Master a Player of the Year program would start. The purpose is to see who is the best player for the year and reward the grinders that play minis.

Here is my purposed point system :

Master :

1st place - 15 points

2nd place - 13 points

3rd place - 10 points

4th place - 10 points

5th place - 8 points

6th place - 8 points

7th place - 8 points

8th place - 8 Points

Trials

1st - 6 points

2nd - 5 points

3rd - 4 points

Next comes the mater of prize support. I don't know much about the budget of M-L or how the prize support would work. My recommendations would be either A.) Cards B.) Moneyz . Again, I don't know who takes care of cash payouts for Masters so this would need to be discussed between the Staff.

I appreciate everything that the staff is doing, they are doing a great job of running the website and making everything go smoothly. Hopefully this opporotunity can be used to reward the best players on ML.

P.S. Text in white is information that has been updated and is no longer relavant.

Edits : No points for Mini Grinding.
Points system for masters updated.
Points system for trials updated.

#1 Year -- Given the length of time people stay on ML for, I think a Year is far, far too long. Player of the Month / Player of the Season would be a lot more relevant (and allows players to get in on the action every few months, as opposed to making it an irrelevant title for anyone that joins or returns to ML a few months into the season.)

#2 Minis -- Allowing mini grinds makes Trials / Masters points irrelevant. Minis should just be treated like PTQ/FNM events. Player of the [Time] points should only be awarded for Trials and Masters.

Thanks. These are both valid points. Player of the Season seems like it would be more relavant. Perhaps a 3 or 4 or even 6 month season seems more reasonable.

Agreed on minigrinding. I didn't think it would add up that much but after considering it, yes players could accumulate a large amount of points through grinding.

somewhat nice idea.

but that point system suckz ballz, only master should be awarded, maybe trial
Quote:

Master :

1st place - 12 points

2nd place - 10 points

3rd place - 10 points

4th place - 10 points

5th place - 8 points

6th place - 8 points

7th place - 6 points

8th place - 6 Points

Trials

1st - 6 points

2nd - 4 points

3rd - 4 points

why does 3rd and 4th get same number of points as 2nd? O_o

also players from 5th to 8th place should get same points Wink

and finally I dont understand why is 3rd in trial getting same amount as 2nd but 4th get nothing

Issue #1 Points given by minis. Perhaps a better way could be giving 1 point per 100 team points or whatever. If you hit 1k points in a season that should be rewarded somehow, shouldn't it?
Issue #2 Time limits. This should go along with team points reset and the like, which is once each 3 months.

Just my 2 cents

This is the most awesome idea I have heard in a while!
I just believe 2 things:

1.- No points for minis.
2.- Move the number of the points given a little to attain balance.

But the idea is just too awesome to let it pass. I approve.

Rating: like, barney with 1950+ is quite amazing. Shouldn't there be some award for that?

Masters could be weighed at 1:1, trials at 1:2 and invitational at 2:1?

or

Top 4 for trial, top 8 for master and invitational.

trial:
1st: 3 pts
2nd: 2 pts
3-4: 1 pts

Master:
1st: 8 pts
2nd: 5 pts
3-4: 3 pts
4-8: 2 pts

Invitational:
1st: 10 pts
2nd: 7 pts
3rd-4: 4 pts
4-8: 2 pts

I did this in 2 minutes so... yeah.

Just make sure the Player of the Year/Month/Quarter gets to have their big smiling face on the homepage for a whole year/month/quarter.

You should do player of the month/year for the different formats too. Like one for T2, one for T1.5, one for T1 ect..

Might as well skip all the hastle and just award me the prize because im obv going to win anyway.

Hey! That is a really cool idea. It may even promote more casual players to kick it up a notch, just for the heck of it.

I rly like this idea...

I was was wondering what would the league think of trading the masters prizes for points
You cut the prize of 6 masters (540,00) and divide among a top 8 of the QUARTER

something like:
1 - 170
2 - 85
3 - 65
4 - 55
5 - 50
6 - 45
7 - 40
8 - 35

Confused

Edit: that of course if the league doesnt have more money for prizes

Minis individually shouldnt count for points, but Djinns idea is pretty reasonable
