New season system and award proposal
« on: August 28, 2019, 23:47 »
There is a very solid idea in the works so it's time to get some public feedback.

First, semi-offtopic, we have a new tour system which can be found at http://warden.eurobattle.net/tours
This way we will track PSR gain from tournaments and latest tournaments will be displayed in forum sidebar (see att. 1 and 2).
Additionally, each tournament win will show up in your bnet profile (under "demon" aka tour column).

I would also like to remind you at this point that we are still recruiting more tour mods.

Now to the season proposal.
Proposal is to have fixed season resets at 1. January and 1. July. Since stats reset has all kind of negatives that come with it, it is time to start looking how to show progress and reward mid-season.

We started tracking the following stats (see attachments or check xpam forum sidebar):
1. Upcoming players: players who gained most PSR in current month
2. Players with most played games current month
3. The existing season top players (regular ladder)
4. Top players for each month in current season, calculated on W/L ratio only (PSR gain is not fair to track for monthly winners, W/L is better but not perfect, it might need to be mixed in with PSR somehow).
5. ?? <good ideas welcome for more categories> ??

Each player that is in top X in these categories will automatically receive an icon with his rank on it (some w3 themed icon with text like #1 AUG, or #1 UPC, #1 SE)... we haven't decided yet which categories would be rewarded this way, how many top players and what icons, all we know at this point is that this rewarding will be automatic, refreshed daily and the goal is that you can see top players immediately in channel due to these icons.

I do not know yet if these monthly winners will also receive some reward on the end of the season, it is still too early.

Rewards at the end of season remain the same for now, altho we'll have to think how to better reward people who stay on top for such a long period.

Will receive icon at month end or upon entering? I think should be 1 because such ranking is very violatile after a reset

Also i think icon should be given for max 3 months (monthy reward icon for 1 month) so there is motivation to keep it (many people are crazy about icons)

Icons that track current monthly stats would be refreshed every day at night so they would show actual live situation on ladder. You could get it one day, lose it the next, they would be very dynamic.

Once a month is over the final top would get some other (permanent or longer period) reward, I don't have this part figured out yet tho. One idea is to have the rank and name of the month in the icon.

I guess thats cool too

But i dont like concept of permanent icons, because it could lead to icon inflation (when all have icons, even many different ones) if you want to give 30 permanent icons every month + some at end of season.

I think icons should be valued, so you are proud of getting one and its impossible if everybody has tons of them, then nobody will care

Duration of 1 season seems reasonable, it cycles that way.

It is not 2009, permanent icons are the way to keep the residual players playing here, I suggest adding whole new icons never used before, avatars or even gifs to make it as colorful and attractive for players as possible. Maybe even adding an icon of mara´s mom Nadia to those who get raped ingame with score 0/10 and worse @maraSK
