WSELeague Rules


Introduction to the Weiss Schwarz European League

The European League is a tournament circuit for Weiss Schwarz players all over Europe. 

Our goal is to give players a fun and well organized competitive environment, in which each person who joins can enjoy the game at its highest level, partake in several Sanctioned Tournaments all over Europe and be crowned “King of Europe” in a Final Event each year where we will see the best players face each other.

We aim to increase the number of WeissSchwarz players in Europe, make for them easier to find groups of passionate people and places where to play making it easier to be introduced in a Competitive stage; as WSELeague use a single Ladder for all European players and last an entire year, divided among two Seasons, each player can learn the game, grow up in skill, know people and join several tournaments while he is already into the competitive circuit; as well, experienced players will find new fierce opponents to face!

Every player will have to be careful at any time to his actual ranking in order to gain an invitation for the Finals. During each tournament, each single win, each placement can give him the points he needs; our intention is to make players “move” from a Location to another, to take part to the greatest number of Sanctioned Tournaments possible; this will help the grows of the game and its share, giving Shops/Venue who host Sanctioned Tournament a push to promote the game.

How does it works?

The Weiss Schwarz European League is a tournament circuit on 2 levels. 
The first level is a competition with a championship format. Each player can join Sanctioned Tournaments all over Europe held in Shops/Venue/Associations (formally called Locations) during the League period. The WSELeague last 1 year and is divided into 2 Seasons, each one composed by 5 Episodes. Sanctioned Tournaments are scheduled following Seasons and Episodes periods. 
Players who partake into WSELeague Tournaments take Points in the International Ladder. Those points are guaranteed depending on the performance during each tournaments: final ranking, matches won, TOP results.
The 2nd level is a Final Tournament where the top players of the League will compete. Each player gain access to the Final winning invitations during the League. 

WSELeague Points Calculation


Here the Points Calculation used for WSELeague 2017 Season 2:

  • Each fighter gains points based on his final ranking. Points granted this way are:
    • 0.07 * (Total Number of Fighters +1 - Player Final Rank).
  • Each fighter gains points based on his victories during Swiss rounds. Points granted this way are:
    • 0.73 * (Number of Swiss Matches Won)
  • If total number of players is 8+, Top fighters gain those extra points:
    • 1st Place: 2.5 points
    • 2nd Place: 1.75 points
    • 3rd Place: 1.23 points
    • 4th Place: 0.87 points
  • if total number of players is 16+, Top 5 to Top 8 fighters gain 0.5 extra points.
  • if total number of players is 7 or below, Top fighters gain those extra points:
    • 1st Place: 1,5 points
    • 2nd Place: 0,75 points

If this value is below 1, it becomes 1.
Players that drop during tournament gets 0 points, as always.
In the International and National Ladder, in case of a tie, players are ranked by:

  • Ladder Points  →  Top1 →  Presence Points

Apart from Ladder Points, each player who take part in a Sanctioned Tournament gain 1 Presence Point. Presence Points collected grants prizes at the end of each Season.

In the Presence Ladder, in case of a tie, players are ranked by:

  • Presence Points → Ladder Points → Top1

This model has been successfully used during WSELeague Test Season 2016 but it is subject to change as Head Organizers collect results and always works in order to fix the System in the best way possible.

 

WSELeague: Seasons and Episodes

Players can take part into several Sanctioned Tournaments during the entire year in order to obtain access to the last stage, the WSELeague Final.

Each player can obtain an Invitation to the Final in different ways:

  •         International Ladder Ranking
  •         National Ladder Ranking
  •         Special Events

WSELeague is divided into 2 Season. Each Season is a predetermined period of time during which points are collected in the International Ladder. At the end of the Season, points are reset.

Each Season is divided into 5 Episodes. Each Episode is a predetermined period of time during which Sanctioned Tournaments are scheduled. No single Location can have more than 1 Sanctioned Tournaments during a single Episode, except for Locations that are in a Country with only one shop partaking the League.

Each player can join any number of sanctioned tournament he want to take part to, but he will obtain ONLY the best amount of points he got in his best tournament during each Episode.

(example: During a single Episode I played 3 Sanctioned Tournaments, obtaining respectively 4, 6 and 9 points. The points granted to me for this Episode are 9; During 2 different Episodes I played 3 Sanctioned Tournaments, obtaining respectively 4 and 9 points in tournaments during Episode 1 and 6 points in the tournament during Episode 2 = my total number of points are 15 [9 for first Episode, as it is my best result, plus 6 for 2nd Episode, as it is my only result]

Ladder Points are collected into 2 different ladders: International Ladder and National Ladder.

Any player who joins the WSELeague taking part to a Sanctioned Tournaments appears in the International Ladder. At the end of each Season, Top 4 Players of the International Ladder obtain an Invitation to the WSELeague final.

Any player who joins the WSELeague taking part to a Sanctioned Tournaments appears in the respective National Ladder of that Location. At the end of each Season, Top Players of the National Ladder obtain an Invitation to the WSELeague final, based on the number of player in that National Ladder:

  • 0-8 Players in Ladder: no invitations:
  • 9-25 Players in Ladder: TOP1 invitation
  • 26-60 Players in Ladder: TOP2 invitations
  • 61+ Players in Ladder: TOP3 invitations

ReMatches

ReMatches are special tournaments that can be played in any time during the Season. ReMatch will not counts as a normal Sanctioned Tournament for an Episode, even if played during an Episode period. Instead, the best score you obatin from ReMatches Tournaments  will allow you to replace the worst scoring during the Season (even if you do not play for a Season, getting 0 points). Similar to the Episode mechanics, only the best score in a specific ladder will be used. So:

  • You score 4, 8 and 12, 2 and 14 points over the season and 18 points in a rematch tournament. The 18 points would then replace the 2 points for your total at the end of the season.
  • You score 4, 8 and 12, 2 and 14 points over the season and 1 point in a rematch tournament. There would be no changes made in the totals at the end of the season.
  • You score 4, 8 and 12, 0 (didn't show up) and 14 points over the season and 18 points in a rematch tournament. Your 0 points would be placed with 18 points.



Tournaments Bracket

Some Shop Tournaments of Locations taking part to the WSELeague are improved into Sanctioned Tournaments. Sanctioned Tournaments have their ruling and bracket fixed, the same for each WSELeague Tournament. Only Sanctioned Tournaments grants points for the WSELeague Ladder to players.
