THIS IS AN INFORMATION POST FOR ALL PLAYERS REGARDING LEAGUE


Hello all and welcome to league play. Thank you for choosing a great playlist to bring up your skill set from average to pure awesome.

Please be advised that league play is a competitive playlist.


Placement:

You play 5 games, out of those 5 games depending on how many of those games you win you are placed within a division, Iron 200 being the lowest, Master rank 1 currently the only achievable highest rank (there is a pro division but it is not available as of yet)

Unfortunately, you have the classic case of Dashboarders, Xbox switch offers, and the leave game players. These players will leave before or during the game has started, giving the enemy team a higher chance of winning. However this should not be the case unless 2+ people quit out, and it is CTF.

Your best chance is to really clutch it, and pull up your KD. Pulling up your KD will help for future promotions. (For promotions see below )

Example:

I am a player who has been in the Platinum Division for some time, with about 200 season wins last season joining 2 weeks before the season ended. I usually play masters, or platinum ranks, rarely matched with or against gold or below ranks.

Due to the placement matches and the events that occurred around them, of team mates quitting out before and during the game, I lost every single game, however my "KD" and my "CAPTURES" "DEFENDS" were the highest of the whole team combined.

RESULT: PLACED IRON DIVISION 100

Statistics:

EXAMPLE:

Let us say the MAX base player is 10,000 players. That means only 10,000 players have entered into champions and completed their placement.

  • Number that enter Iron : 20%- only 2,000 players that can be in iron
  • Number that enter bronze: 20% - only 2,000 players that can be in bronze
  • Number that enter silver : 20% - only 2,000 player that can be in silver
  • Number that enter gold : 20%- only 2,000 player that can be in gold
  • Number that enter Plat. : TOP 18% - only 1,800
  • Hence the number that enter masters: TOP 2% - only 200 players.

Please note: I do not remember where I got these percentages from, I think they are right. If not, use it as an example that a limited number can enter any division at any one time, unless the population grows. The bigger the population, the more likely you will be entered into MASTER RANK.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE PLACED INTO A DIVISION BELOW YOUR LEAGUE:


Quite simple; try to win games.

I am not going to tell you to get friends to help or be sociable, you should know that already, anyone who tells you "get friends or get a team" is a simple douche, as most people are aware of that as it is.

Not only should you win games, but try go on win streaks, and most of all this is extremely important, get AS MANY KILLS AS YOU CAN, REDUCTION IN DEATH RATE + BE THERE FOR ALL THE CAPTURES AND DEFENDS. It is extremely important to rise up your SPM.

Important note:

"Score" is extremely important in ranking up from a division to the next. The higher your score compared to the opposite team, more likely you will get ranked up. Try aim for really high SPM.


The game coding will then see your stats pop up, and comparing those stats to your current division it will promote you to the next division.


You do not need to be rank 1 of your current division, so long as you can prove that you are extremely better than the others and it is a walk in the park for you then you will shoot up the ranking system,


FRIEND REQUESTS:

As always you of course you need some sort of a team, somebody with half a brain that can support you. If you are playing moshpit you really want ideally 3 friends that know what they are doing.

You can use this specific thread to advertise yourself if you wish to play with others. That will ensure you have a party to play with. Simply state on a reply, "my name is X, I am rank X, would anyone like to play? (requesting mics only etc)"

  • If you are shy, PM me on xbox (kean the noosh), and I may forward you to other league players if I am in a full party at the time.


Probation system:


Placed on a 5minute ban from league play for 2 quits in a row, followed by probation for every quit after that. It is to really stop KD specialists to join league and ruin it for everyone, and encourage you staying in the game.

DO NOT QUIT OUT OF A GAME IN THE FIRST 2 MINUTES. THAT IS NOT GOOD. YOU WILL NOT IMPROVE.
Point system:


Depends on how tough or weak the team is that you are facing statistically. If they are noobs you get below 100 points if you in, if they are noobs and you lose, you lose over 100 points. Ladder points help maintain your current rank in your current subdivision.

Points are transferable to different divisions once promoted.

The best advice I can give is to become master, you need to play with masters.

Join'd up with theese guys today and went from being placed in Silver Division to Platinum Division in 11 games. Noosh is a great team leader and player. They are great guys to play with and I had a blast. I encourage anyone who wants to progress to shoot him a message, Its time well spent.

Thanks again man, Look forward to more GG's

Probation isn't to keep you playing the game, it is too keep your from leaving games when its against a full team and you are playing by yourself with Randy Mcscrandy or when your whole team leaves and its just 1v4.

Probation is unneeded or better yet if you get in a 1v4 situation there should be a give up option that automatically drives the game into the loss instead of playing it out.

Solo players shouldn't be matched against teams. Of course this is treyarch where apparently you only matter if you are a youtuber.

  1. The Idea behind probation was infact to encourage playing the game all the way through until the end. In an Ideal world this would be a "consequence".
  2. A 5 minute "time out" however is not a sufficient punishment for serial game leavers.
  3. Although I do agree there should be a game stop function if too many people quit out, however that can encourage those who know a little bit more about computers (not me) to start "lag switching" and "host booting" or "DDOS" players from the enemy team to instantly win the game etc.
  4. Probation for me works. I hate being put on probation if I leave the game because I want to instantly play.
  5. I encourage players to party up with at least 2 friends if they wish to succeed, not taking chances with random players, as the randoms I have come across, stand still whilst they shoot their AN 94

The fact that you try to indicate playing in leauge makes you go from normal to pure awesome is just ludicrous at best and flat out laughable. Leauge is no better or harder and does not take any more skill than the regular playlists and never has and never will. The games play the same with minor differences because of what is not allowed, which does not make the games or matches take any greater skill or communication to play at all.

Just by playing league doesn't make you better over night , however, playing league consistently will make you better at the game.

League attracts a certain type of player, not everyone likes it, but on a general night, the skill level overall is much higher in league than other playlists.

Have to disagree, I have seen really poor teams in LP before. On a level I had ot check to make sure I was in LP and not normal because of how bad the teams were and it happend like this for 10+ games in a row. So to say that on general the games in LP are better or higher skilled is not exactly true. I have seen some normal and hc games that more competitive aspects and game play than many LP games I was in. I have seen LP games where one team dominated the other team so bad I was sure I was playing against bots or something on regular level.

You can get better at the game by playing either normal, hc, or league, none of them above the other really makes you a better player at all any more than the other. So claiming that one does is false and misleading.

on average I would say the players in LP are better. (players not teams) It might be as simple as they are just trying harder now or whatever but I find my matches far funner then pubs. I consider pubs on average the equiv of facing off against gold lobbies and below
