Major League Kag is back again with season 3!

Discussion in 'Old Events/Giveaways/Contests' started by mcrifel, Jan 14, 2017.

  1. Satisfied with the rules that you've put in place. I think that if you play one map on U.S. or EU that you should have to play that exact map on the other side so that way each side has an equal chance. The advantages and disadvantages of those maps seriously impact the match and the amount of time it takes for a side to win. Third map should be fine to do whatever, but consistency is important if you're going to determine the third round based off a timer that can be easily impacted
    Other than that, rules are fair ::D:

    But does it really matter all that much unless the maps themselves are unbalanced? I mean, sure, if your clan has only practiced playing on certain maps with the lag going a certain way then you'd want to make sure you had a chance to play the map the way you liked it, if any given map is a "fair" map, then surely it's irrelevant who is lagging on that particular map? Or am I missing some kind of lag-based voodoo that interferes with players unequally depending on the map?

    The server round 3 is played on is decided by which team cap the flags fastest. In the TOXIC vs MIST match we played the only 1-flag map in the MLK mapcycle so we had to play the same map round 2 to make it fair, obviously since 2 flags are harder to cap than 1.

  5. A couple of points to answer here:

    1. Maps are all balanced, I never said they weren't
    2. Ping influences the combat system in KAG so that the lower ping is obviously favored in a fight (thats obvious) Who wins a fight in the combat system depends on the angle which they attack from and the timing.
    3. I don't know how far you've actually looked into the situation but the rules of MLK are 1 round on each continent and the third round server location is determined by which team beats the other team faster on their continent (if a third round is needed).
    All maps play out differently than each other and I'm sure you can agree with me on that. Some maps are gigantic hills that require the hill to be captured for dominance, or middle being an ocean that is difficult to acquire. Now lets take an example:

    1. Round 1 plays on a gigantic hill that once captured can setup a ballista to rain down on the other team, by all means retaking mid from such a threat is no simple task, which can take precious time and effort to reclaim, or this simply could spell the end of the round and give you a loss
    2. Round 2 plays on a flat map, middle is just a tower that you can setup, it takes time to establish and can constantly be contested and taken back with ease, a direct opposite to Round 1, a gigantic hill that can be used to burrow and setup a bunch of doors and stone all wrapped in a premade cave made out of dirt.

    As you can probably guess, the time it takes to win on these maps is clearly different from one another, because its a completely different terrain, and it brings its advantages and disadvantages. The time is different, and if a team is given the map that takes longer to win, they automatically forfeit the 3rd round (if needed) to the opposite continent's server.
    Hopefully that answers any questions you have, if not I'm happy to oblige.

    Real quick question; What are the rules regarding disqualification / forfeits? I've been threatened by a few clans about it, and a lot of clans are
    constantly changing times / dodging matches against us. I'd like to know if there's a concrete rule in place to make sure that while no one can consistently avoid matches and waste people's time, also making sure that no one is being penalised unfairly. I haven't seen anything in the discussion threads about it, so it'd be great if you could illuminate me. thanks.

    I don't see why an aus and eu team dont vs on a us server, or eu and us on an aus server. Both teams would have equal ping, fix mlk please

    eu would have the advantage on a us server with aus vs eu except if it is a west coast server but we don't have that. Same story with us vs eu but then us would have the advantage and no one likes playing with bad ping.

    As you may have noticed, MLK eu server has been down for about a week now. I had a bunch of problems with it and they should soon be fixed!

    The freeplay period is over on the 20th of april.
    --- Double Post Merged, Apr 15, 2017, Original Post Date: Apr 3, 2017 ---

    The end of the freeplay period is near!

    That is right! only 5 more days until the end of the freeplay period, this means we will also start doing the semi finals soon! 29 matches have been played in total this season and perhaps a few more to come. Considering how the state of Competitive KAG is that is pretty darn good. I know this MLK probably wasn't the best and I am totally not the man who should be doing this but I hope you guys at least enjoyed it a little bit!

    So to freshen up on what will happen: After the free play period ends there will be no more earning points for MLK, the top 4 clans in the leader board will move onto the semi finals,

    The clan that is first will go against the clan that is third,
    The clan that is second will go against the clan that is fourth,

    The winners of those matches go to the finals and the losers fight for third place.

    The date and time for the semi finals/finals will be decided in the next weekend as I will be in Berlin when the free play period ends (if any KAG players want to meet up let me know).

    Here we have the official MLK anthem sung by @SirDangalang

    Since my clan was formed after MLK began are we allowed to compete for MLK points or is it too late?
