Hello Netrunner Universe,
I am very excited to announce the third Official SimHack OCTGN League. We are happy that we can continue the league for this great community!
First and foremost here, while OCTGN is a great interface, please do your homework and know how to use OCTGN prior to entering any league games. OCTGN is not entirely intuitive, but thankfully Tuism
(from BGG) made an excellent easy to use OCTGN GUIDE.
We will be using http://www.challengeboards.net/ as our league host. You will need to "register" for BOTH the website and for the specific league. The league is called "The Official Stimhack League - III".
The Password for the league is "isuckatnetrunner" remove airquotes. We decided to add a password to avoid the few nasty players we encounter every league, so please do not forward it too easy.
Please make your names on OCTGN, Stimhack, and the league website as close to the same as possible to avoid confusion for your opponents!
The league will start 02/11/2015 and conclude 03/22/2015. (Yes we start Wednesday!)
When you start a league game, just make sure you have "SHL3" in the title. It will deter non league players, and let other Stimhack league players you are looking for a game. There will be no minimum or maximum number of games you can play. Play anytime, as much as you like. The winner will report the game, and loser will have 36 hours to "reject" the game if there is a discrepancy.
It's also nice if you are the loser to go ahead and "verify" the loss, this will speed along the scoring of the game. You are not required to play a full match, playing only one side is ok. Although to keep in the spirit of Netrunner please mix up who you play and which side you play as much as possible. Play any legal decks you like. For simplicity sake, if the cards are "rezzed" on OCTGN, then they are available for league play.
If you do an SHL3 game request, you have to except all who want to play and are in the league. You do not have to play two games.
If you want to play certain players, make a private game
We use an ELO system, and will do a Top 4 end tourney after the 6 weeks to decide the ultimate winner. If you have any troubles ingame, make screenshots of the full incident so we can see what happened (be as informative as possible). We hope we can avoid trouble, but will deal with it if needed.
We know the trouble with ELO and the current Challengeboard site. So far, we have not found a reliable alternative. We are open to suggestions for a next league...
Prizes:The ultimate winner will get a special forum badge signifying their victory in the league. Additionally there will be
no other prizes, yet... If you wanna donate, feel free to PM us.
I think that about does it. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns here at the forums
