Leagues Rules
« on: December 27, 2008, 07:41 PM »
1) General Rules, Behavior

  • Spamming is disallowed in the games and also on our site. You may not fluster your opponent by writing pointless materials constantly.
  • Insulting other players, people is always disallowed in games and also on our site.
  • As there might be some players under the age of 18, no sexual content may be uploaded or shown on the site.
  • No racial or any other discrimination is allowed on our site or in the games. Any behavious like that will be highly penalized.
  • Cheating by any program is highly forbidden. Anyone caught on cheating may be banned for the whole season (at the moderators discretion).
  • Noone may use alias and ask for league games under alias or claim one's Cup or Tourney game under alias. Getting caught with aliasing results banning (at the moderators discretion).
  • Registering double accounts is forbidden, results banning.
  • No graves or teamnames may be used that might confuse the opponent.
  • You can play the same opponent 15 times in the same season in the same league. Report page will give you an error if you try to report more games.
  • The schemes have their own set of rules, which can be found in the description of the official league schemes. They can be found here: https://www.tus-wa.com/schemes/?leagues
  • You must use the official schemes found on the schemes page. If you host and use the incorrect scheme without telling them, your opponent has the right to replay the game with the correct scheme.

2) Lag-outs

  • If one player lags out and returns to the given channel, the game should be continued with handicap or restarted.
  • If a game is lagging, do not quit. Quitting means you surrender. If a game lags out, let it lag out.
  • If a player lags out and is not seen online 10 minutes later, then the game is taken care of by the following rules:
  • If it was the first game, then the game should not be reported, rather played at another time.
  • If it was the second game and the loser of the first game was seemingly losing the second game too, it can be reported. At any other occasion the moderators will decide about the outcome of the game, after it is posted to the forum's League Complaints section.
  • Moderators will never decide about the outcome of a game considering the skills of the players. Always the state of the game is what the moderators consider.

3) Quitting

  • Quitting a game before it ends means you forfeit the game. There is only one exception to the rule: if your opponent chose the wrong scheme without informing you. Before you quit, you must point out the scheme is incorrect and that you want to replay the game with the correct scheme.
  • If a player returns to the channel but does not want to continue the game, then the quitting player's opponent automatically wins.
  • Only acceptable way of quitting is if the quitting is reasonable and the quitting player agrees with his/her opponent on playing the game another time.
  • Mostly the moderators will consider the state of the game, the way of the quitting, how the conversation went on and also the number of the game (first or second) and then decide about the outcome of the game(s).
  • Lag-outs and Quittings that could not be solved between the two players must be posted to League Complaints.
  • Intentional Lag-outs, quittings or surrendering in 2vs2 or 3vs3 games (both singles and clanners), in a way that benefits the quitting team are not allowed. In such cases, under the moderators discretion the game will be rematched or a win will be given to the opposite team.

4) Proceeding

  • First, you need to find a partner. Then you decide which kind of league you want to play: Classic or Free. Both of you have to pick one scheme and play those two games. The higher season rating must pick first.
  • Before the first game start, both of you have to tell what your username on the site is. Missing to do this might have your games infirmed.
  • Both players/clans need to agree on the map. If you light up, you agree on the map. Using auto-light up is strictly forbidden. If the opponent picks a non-default sized map without informing you, you can still request a normal sized map at the start of the game and interrupt the game. If the scheme has manual worm placement, you must make the request before the first turn of the game. If the scheme has random worm placement, you must make the request before the second turn of the game.
  • After you finished the games, and the games result is 1-1, you can agree on playing a third game.
  • EVERY GAME MUST BE REPORTED! This means DoN (Double or Nothing) games are highly forbidden!

5) Reporting

  • Winner of a game reports his own game. Losers do not need to confirm anything.
  • The game must be reported within 6 hours after the game was played. Otherwise mods decide to keep the game and correct its order or delete it.
  • Loading up a fake replay is obviously forbidden. Getting caught with this results in banning.
  • Avoiding a player/clan is not allowed. Avoiding is when you look for TUS but refuse to play against a specific opponent and keep looking.
  • If a player is looking for TUS but avoids you, you can post the logs or screenshots to leagues complaint forum and ask for permission to report a free win. If mods agree, you can report a free win and the opponent has one week to play the game. Players must arrange the game in the game/complaint thread.
  • If you want to play only specific schemes, you must make this clear when looking for TUS. For example: "TUS BnG anyone?" or "TUS no Elite anyone?". Openly searching "TUS anyone?" but then refusing to play a specific scheme is considered avoiding. After you have found out the opponent's scheme pick, you must play the game.
  • If a player agrees to play TUS with you and then disappears before asking your scheme pick, you CANNOT report free win.
  • If a player plays your pick, but then disappears at his pick, you CANNOT report free win.
  • If a player plays his pick but then disappears at your pick, you CAN report free win. But even that free win must be played when that player comes back.


6) Playoffs

  • Playoffs are played between the first eight players of the leagues' total stats, and only those get in who played the required minimum games. Playoffs are basically a smaller tourney and the site generates the pairs automatically.
  • You must play at least 80 games in the season to get in to the Playoffs for classic league. (70 games for clans), 50/20 for TEL and TRL and 30/5 for Free league.
  • Each round of the playoffs stand of 5 different picks. The players pick schemes by turns and the higher ranked player has the advantage of picking first.
  • Deadlines are usually posted on the forums by the moderators, based on activity at the moderators discretion.
  • Any player or clan who fails to finish their playoff games and is kicked out will be disqualified from the next playoffs of that league. After that, they are free to qualify again.

Due to massive misunderstandings: MonkeyIsland refers to an island not a monkey. I would be a monkey, if my name was IslandMonkey meaning a monkey who is or lives on an island. MonkeyIsland is an island which is related to monkeys. There's been a legend around saying MonkeyIsland is a game. So please, think of me as an island or a game.

You can play the same opponent 15 times in the same season in the same league. Report page will give you an error if you try to report more games.
How about giving the chance for people to play with each other? If they pass the limit, the games after that only affect their Overall Rating, but not the seasonal.

could make things too complex as your still seeded in playoffs by overall ratings..
15 is plenty, i maxed out against uber aswell but this is a league, not just a ladder against your worm friends.

In the Classic League, the first four games must include two rope based schemes (Rope Race, Roper, WxW/Shopper) and two normal schemes (BnG, Team17, Elite, Hysteria). The last game is picked by the higher ranked player and can be any of these schemes.

This rule is just useless imo. First of all good Default players are usually better in shopper then good ropers, so you cant really say if Shopper is more a rope scheme then a default scheme.
And if 1 of the opponents is very weak in rope schemes then he can just pick a default.
So, imo this rule should just be deleted. ;o

I actually agree with this, you should be able to pick what you want anyway really.

Either way, this normally happens anyway 2 of each are picked...

if someone doesnt like rope schemes he can simply pick defaults.
And if he was the better player in the season he will have 3 picks and he can choose 3 defaults.

Maybe we need some refresh for PO seeding, so that the best players/clans get the highest PO seed.

Would you mind trying to give me an example of having more than three rope rope based game out of five games with the current rule? ;D

These two are exactly the same, only the current rule doesn't make any difference between normal and rope game, but still limits both.

Ok

we had playoffs vs cfc and ran into a problem.

They picked rope

We picked shopper

Because they had to pick a default next it would stop them from picking wxw or ttrr. This is unfair because we have just forced them to pick a default by using shopper to make their pick a default and play to our strengths even tho we did not have first pick because they were a higher seed than us.

This rule makes the order of games have this disadvantage and loop hole.

We ignored the rule and let them pick wxw. This was the 3rd and final rope scheme. Our pick was next and we picked elite. They had last pick and picked hysteria. No problems.

With the tus rule they would of had to of picked a default and it would of played into our advantage as we were likely to win both defaults and could of won the series. Its the psychology of the order of picks and the order in which you win the games applies more pressure to the later picks in playoffs.

After some discussion, the rule below is being added to penalize players who treat the playoffs passively or with disinterest.

I heard it's in TuS rules that you can request a map change, I can't find this rule anywhere on TuS, I checked experimental rules thread, the league rules page, basic information, I can't find it anywhere.

Does this rule exist? Is it official? Can I see it please?
