COD 4 League Rules

I have copied this straight from DF.

Please confirm that you have read by posting "read" in the thread.

Hi All

As posted we need to have a full set of rules before we move onto the next gametype.

Here are my thoughts, can you please add anything that you may think needs adding ;)

1 - Teams will be made up of 7 full time players

2 - A minimum of 5 players must play otherwise the game is lost.

3 - 2 no shows and you are out (unless a doctors note supplied)[/B]

4 - Each team will have a dedicated captain (making sure all the team are available and for posting scores) Up to the team who this is

5 - All Games must start on the time scheduled to avoid delay

6 - All games must be set to 'Join In Progress = Not Allowed'

7 - All Teams must state a dedicated host (best connection)

8 - Scoring is 2 for a win 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss

9 - Attendance needed between 8:30pm and 11pm (times may vary between)

10 - Players who are unable to make the match may nominate a replacement as long as it is at least 1 hour before the first match begins, posted on the forums, the player not able to attend is named along with the replacement player, if a replacement player is used they play on all the matches that night or none.

11 - Best Internet connection to be used at all times (arranged prior to game starting

12 - Team mates that log on after a game has started must wait until the game has finished before joining their team

13 - No Cheating, no modded controllers/keyboard and mouse.

How to guide:

When setting up a game

Go to private match and game setup, change it to the game type nominated, change to the map nominated and then go to settings and change to hardcore (if nominated).

Invite your team in and change all your tags to Dog, Rim, BJ's, SnM, MD, BDB. (whichever team you are)

Then invite the captain from the team you are mean't to be playing, (depending on who is hosting, please be flexible and ready to jump into another hosted lobby).

yeah, have read the rules but after consideration I am dropping out for the following reasons:

apparently i'm a defector (as per "bbshark" on DF) so i am not going to cow tow to him or other members on said DF to try and change my status in their eyes - this all came about cos i asked muppet to switch me with xibyx on saturday to doggin team (seemed a fair enough request) anyways, the whole experience wasn't great, so i guess its not for me.....

The reason I put you on a team that was already created is because I thought you were fully committed, registered on DF and seemed really keen. Looks like I may have been mistaken.

If you fall at the first hurdle because the biggest mouth and whinge in the league shouts up, then maybe it isn't for you. If I was you I would have taken it with a pinch of salt and thought it as first night mix-ups.

Let me know what you decide, but it would be a shame for you to drop out when you seemed so keen. :)

You didn't know the rules on Sunday night and what happened?

We put rules in place after a few games of the league starting because things like Sunday was happening. Since then we have only had about 1 or 2 issues in 6 month.

So the rules are in place to help things go smoothly, sorry if you think they are strict, but they work when followed and we all have good fun.

@ the team swapping I did answer to it, I said the teams were posted on DF and I wasn't changing them again.

Surely that can't be serious? :?

Why is everything so serious?
Tbh all people want to do is have a laugh, play a few games, this all seems so strict.
Plus need a variety of choices of game type.
Why search and destroy?
Why not team deathmatch, headquarters etc?

Please read what I have posted in the past, we play 3 maps per gametype that was voted for, and then we move onto another gametype which is also voted on.

With regards to the rules, I have already answered that above.

Unless you get doctors notes via email or you have a scanner ;-) :w00t::w00t::-D

Like I am trying to tell people, for it all to work we have some rules put together to help the league along and have some organisation.

We do have fun and we also are competative, thats why its a league and not just a clan match.

I know I'm not part of this, but what we learned from the Apprentice game is you need strict rules or people will just complain and eventually the game will fall apart :-(

Hi Guys

Just want to put this into a little perspective.

I did mention that j9stl was assigned to play for a different team than he was playing on. I did not know that he had asked to be on a different team because there was nothing in the forum about it. Has far has i and others was aware the team is has stated.

I am unsure why you needed a team change and im not that concerned but you let the team you was supposed to be playing with down has they was forced to forfeit their matches. You are the one that got upset when i explained that you needed to join the team you was down to play with. They needed you.

Has for the rules let me take you though a little bit of the history of the league we play.
A few months back we started off with 5 teams of 6 and there was no rules except for the basic set up of the matches. we was going to play each other 1 in each game type until all game types on all maps had been played. this worked out to be a long lasting league. so we decided between us that we would play 1 game type over 3 different maps, team with most wins at the end wins the league. When we started to play we came across problems like lagging people joining the game and so on. Rules were then made to help stop any arguments occurring, if you look back in the league forum you will see some of them.

I will give you examples. We was playing a match and someone joined the opposing team but has we didn't know if he was a stand in or not we carried on playing. The other team did not notice he had joined so they also carried on. at the end of the match we lost by only 4 or 5 kills but this player had some kills and deaths that made the game unbalanced. we brought in the rule that people need to be told that they are using a stand in and who they are for so that we can see and have to cause to stop a match. This changed to a hour so that everyone could read and see it for themselves.
The best host was brought in because people complained it was lagging. in one of our matches we was lagging badly and quit out think everyone would be the same but it was only some of our team. We then made sure it was best host i.e. fast up and down.
Other rules soon followed has problems happened so has to help in future. other rules can still be added and taken away has it deems necessary. For example a couple of my team complained that they thought a rapid fire pad was being used. We had a verbal understanding that we all would play with a standard pad but no rule was made. It was added on Monday to make it clear to any new players it would not be allowed. Thats not just for players from here but for all new players.
Another good example is the minimum players rule. on game types like team death match it was found that it was better to have less players so it was decided that a minimum had to be brought it to stop anyone deliberately having players missing to gain an advantage.

We are now at the point were there has been no complaints about things that happen because we all know what to do in that event. This is a competitive league were everyone wants to win, but the main point is to have fun and has long has everyone plays fair and enjoys the game then we are all happy about it.

We now have (until this week) 4 teams of 7 because teams were regularly down a player or 2 so we disbanded a team and made all teams up to 7 a side. Now we have 2 other teams from here and that makes 6 teams of 7.
If you dont like the rules that we have set between us all then you dont need to play and have that choice, but the rules are there to help with the fun. its no fun if people are taking a unfair advantage because there is no rules to stop them.

Imho the rules do not cover enough problems, i was a tournament director on a large gaming league and found that even some of the fairest players would try and find a loop hole just to get out of losing.

as for why search and destroy every week, well its not! As a group every 3 weeks we vote for the next game type then we vote every week for the next map. you have your choice this week to choose the map. one with the most votes gets it. Me i dont like playing sabotage but if it gets voted in then i play it. others dont like other game types but they still play because that majority voted it in.

If you dont want to play then I thank you for at least trying it, if you do want to play the please read the rules we have set up and stick by them. If you feel a new rule is required then let us know and if its agreed then it will be added.

Most of all we want to have fun after all its only a game but we do need to all be singing of the same sheet so that it runs smoothly.

Thanks for understanding.

@shark
this must go down as the longest first post by a member ever lol
I do get your drift on the above, but i found your tone overbearing the other night, hence my remarks.
As for joining the other team, I had no tags and no invites so gave up.
As for defecting, it's documented on this forum that I asked for a switch with xibyx the day before.

er thanks i think :)

I apologise if i came across too strong. We had just played the team that i understood that you was playing for and they was very short on players. Even if they had won then it was already a loss to them. I and others assumed you had not tuned up and wasn't playing. When i seen you on the other team i thought you had just got mixed up and let you know you should be on the other team and they was waiting for you.

Has until today i have never been to these forums so i would not have seen the post made about going to the other team. is xibyx not playing at all? Is it a permanent switch? Remember there is only 7 to a team and didn't they have 7 players anyway even without you?

Im not sure who your captain is but ask that person to post the full team that will play in a thread on df and then we will use that has your team. I think muppet didnt have the time to keep changing the team sheet so kept you on the team you had been assigned to.

I will switch you onto Strictly Missionary and put J9STL onto the other team, if he still doesn't want to play then I think there maybe 1 or 2 more on here that will take his place.
