  Some minor changes to the playoffs  040412  
 

After some discussion amongst the crew we have made 2 minor changes to the playoffs:

1) In the gold playoff, the winner of the qualifiers will be "reversed" in terms of their opponents. I.e. Q1 will not play the div 1 1st team, but the div 1 4th team instead. This means that it's Slackers vs Antiquad or Team Freedom rather than Slackers or Hyphen or Nobbs R Us. This should become clearer once the full brackets are up.

2) Due to coding difficulties (i.e. we don't have a coder), and our noobish skills, we will be removing the loser's bracket from the competition. This is because it complicates the coding side of it as much as any other reason.

If anyone has any major complaints about these issues then don't hesitate to come into irc for a chat.

  Regular season and catch-up week ended  040412  
 

Hello fellows! Regular season is ended and crew will take actions and giving information as soon as we've decided, how the tournament continues. Was really nice to see lots of active clans and players who makes this kinda tournament come true! Thanks to every clan, which didnt (too bad) to make their way to playoffs, and good luck to those clans, who made it to playoffs!

(Edit) Thanks for goljat to bringing up clear golden playoffs tree. Check it, it looks pretty interesting! Also, silver playoffstree looks as well interesting. We should remember the bronze playoffs too. Thanks for sede (fappers) for giving us some 'webspace' ;)

// oosi

It's been an enjoyable season for me, good luck to all in the playoffs and comiserations to those who missed out. Better luck next time! A reminder to all clans that have matches which have been played but not reported... report those games asap!

  New admin in town  040407  
 

No one else has announced it so I thought I'd do it myself. Today I was added to the NQR admin team. I hope I can help out and aid this fine league in its continued development.

After confirming a few results as my first duty, I took time to prepare some interviews. The first, with satanic from POFF, is already up on the interviews page, so go check it out.
Tomorrow I hope to bring you a cutting-edge interview with Fausto from controversial division 4 clan JW. Check back here later to see what the man from the clan everyone loves to hate has to say!

UPDATE: The Fausto interview is LIVE! Be - My next targets will be (subject to their approval) the second greatest German ever (pattah), SR's Mr Nice guy (Gamer) and probably a whole clan (dunno who though!!)

  Catch-up week  040406  
 

Alot of clans now report WO from games that should have been played week 1 to 7. Those WO's will not be accepted! Only the games that should have been played week 8 have the possibility to get WO during catch-up week if the conditions are right, (scheduled games were opponents didn't show up).

  Playoffs for NQR6!  040403  
 

Hello Quakers!


This News post is the results of the NQR Crew meeting, we had over a couple of days. The Playoff system posted at 29/03, was met with alot of questions, anger and creative critisism. The NQR Crew, took a step back to see if there were any legitimate reason for all these upset reactions. We came to the conclusion that it was, due to the post that was made pre-season about the playoff system, this ment that a few clans was cut off from playoffs with these adjustments made by NQR Crew. These adjustments was an reaction towards the idleness of many clans. Please note that our actions to alter this system was in the best of our intentions towards the players, clans and the community, we now know that we took the wrong decision by altering the system so severly as we did, and the timing (mid-season/end of season) of these adjustments wasn't the best aswell either.


Playoff systems:


  • Gold Playoffs
    10 Clans from Division 1 will go through to Gold Playoffs, from rankings 1st to 10th, they will be accompained with 2 clans from Division 2, from rankings 1st to 2nd. Clans placed from ranking 11th to 14th in Division 1 will go into qualifying, where they will face Division 2 clans from the rankings 3rd to 6th. The winner in these games, will secure a spot in Gold Playoffs.

    Gold tournament
    ---------------
    Qualifying round:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Div1 11th vs Div2 6th --> Q1
    Div1 12th vs Div2 5th --> Q2
    Div1 13th vs Div2 4th --> Q3
    Div1 14th vs Div2 3rd --> Q4

    UPDATED GOLD System >>

  • Silver Playoffs
    4 Clans from Division 2 will go through to the Silver Playoffs, clans from ranking 7th to 10th. They will be accompained with 10 clans from Division 3, and the Silver Playoff will be complete by the addition of 2 clans from Division 4, those 2 clans will be from ranking 1st and 2nd.
    SILVER System >>

  • Bronze Playoffs
    8 Clans from Division 4 will enter the Bronze Playoffs, those are the clans from ranking 3rd to 10th. They will be accompained with 8 clans from Div5, from rankings 1st to 8th.
    BRONZE System >>


Explanation of Losers Bracket

All clans that lose their primary playoff game will be moved down to Losers Bracket, where you will have the chance to climb all the way to fight in the Bronze game (3rd place game). The losers of the semi finals games, will face eachother in a fight best of 3. The winner of that fight goes directly to Bronze game. The loser of that game will then face the winning clan of Losers Bracket. And self-explanatory, the winner of that game takes a place in the Bronze game, the Bronze game will be fought over best of 5 maps. Down below you have a more detailed look at how the Losers Bracket system is thought to work out, I just hope this freaking page can handle this ;)


1. Group
-----------
L#01-#02
L#05-#06
L#09-#10
L#13-#14

Winners face eachother. Winner of that game decides who goes through to next game.

2. Group
-----------
L#03-#04
L#07-#08
L#11-#12
L#15-#16

Winners fight eachother, winner of that game goes through.


3. Group
-----------
L#17-#18
L#19-#20
L#21-#22
L#23-#24

Winner fights winner of round 1.


L#25-#26
vs
L#27-#28

Winner goes to Bronze game (3rd place game).
Loser plays winner of Losers Bracket. Winning clan
gets to play in the Bronze game.


Maps

The following maps will be used in the NQR 6 playoffs; DM3, DM2, E1M2, CMT4 & E2M2TDM.
The same rules apply for decider maps as it does in regular season. Here's a rules refresher from rules page concerning this issue; "Best of 3: If the result is 1-1 after two maps have been played, a decider map will be required. If the same map has been played both first maps the decider will be that map as well. Else a map will be agreed upon between the teams, or selected by the throw away system (a team is chosen randomly to throw first map). Example: team1 picks CMT4, teams2 picks DM3 - a decider map will be picked from DM2 E1M2 E2M2TDM. Team1 is chosen randomly to throw away first map. Team1 throws away DM2, team2 throws away E1M2, E2M2TDM will be played as decider."


Playoff Tree / Job aplication

Well, to be honest we really are in trouble considering the playoff tree. Kryten our beloved Coder, has IRL issues he needs to tend to, and we wish him GL with those. But this get's us in a very uncomfortable situation, due to the fact that the Playoff tree is not done, and playoffs is close! Basicly, we are throwing out an job aplication here, "Do you know PHP-Coding?", "Want to help the Crew?". "Want to work in a stressful enveiroment, no pay and so on?". If you answered yes on all the above questions then please contact Legio or any of the other admins in NQR Crew.


Final Words

The last few days, has been kind a like when shit hits a fan. We did these adjustments, considering that many clans was idle/got kicked out from the league. And belive it or not, we did it with the best of intentions. When first faced with the storm of arguments, questions and whining. We defended our decision, we had been working on a soloution for some time and was pleased with the result we'd come up with. After awhile, we said to our selves, "Ok let's take a step back and really try to understand why all this critisism is comming towards us". Well we did, and i ordered up a NQR Crew meeting to adress the issue about the playoff system. We had some discussion back and forth, what do to about this, and we finally decided upon the idea of Qualifiers, as earlier posted by a player on the News comments. Now for the love of god, let's concentrate on the games that still needs to be played and the upcomming playoffs that lay ahead of us :)! And as a fellow admin would've said, "STRENGHT AND HONOR TO ALL OF YOU!".

  NQR 6 playoffs system!  040329  
 

Hello Quakers!

Considering some trouble with clans getting idle during season, we had to adjust some things in the playoff system that was decided upon earlier due to the fact of clans getting kicked/left NQR 6. This system we now have is based on pretty much the same idea, we are pleased with it as of now. The playoff systems are reffered to as; GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE System. First of all we want to make it clear that this season of NQR will be using the whole NQR Map-pool; DM3, DM2, E1M2, CMT4 & E2M2TDM. All games except Bronze-game, semi final and finals will be played best of 3. This season we will utilize a losers bracket system as well, to further bring excitement and more games to our beloved clans/players and community :)!

  • Gold Playoffs
    10 Clans from Division 1 will go through to Gold Playoffs, from rankings 1st to 10th. They will be accompained with 6 clans from Division 2, from rankings 1st to 6th.

Final words

We hope you guys are as excited to the upcoming playoffs as we are, it most certainly will be a blast :)! Last season the clans below Division 1 were not given a playoff system, due to many reasons, one of them beeing that is was going to be too time-consuming, and we wanted the season to get underway as soon as possible. But this season we deliver playoffs to all divisions, as we promised to you guys during last season. I really hope that all of you no matter what division you play in, will enjoy and get thrilled playing in your respective playoffs! Best of wishes goes out from the entire NQR Crew to all clans that will enter Playoffs, GOOD LUCK!

We are working on the playoff tree, and it will be up as soon as possible, Kryten is a hard man to get a hold of these days ;)!

  NQR 6 Playoffs  040324  
 

Hello fellow brothers in arms!

We have had many questions regarding the upcoming playoffs, which we have tried to answer to the best of our knowledge. But as it is now, we will have a NQR Crew meeting on thursday to discuss the playoff system, and to settle some issues concerning the playoffs in general.

After the NQR Crew meeting we will release all the info regarding the playoffs, such as; the playoff system, complete explanation on how it works. I can't say for certain that this info will be released to the public already on thursday evening/night. But if it's not released on thursday, you should expect it in the following days to come.

So to all of you that has asked us questions and is wondering in general about the playoffs, bare with us :), you will be briefed. Until then I strongly advice all clans to finish up their games, Good Luck to all of you!

// Legio
