Season 52 - Feedback Report

Season 51 Town Hall (You Ask Us) During the season 51 town hall, we asked that players ask us any questions they have about the way league runs or how moderation works. While there was not much in the way of actionable takeaways from it, we felt that it was a valuable discussion and should be repeated in the future. We will look to do one of these “reverse” town halls roughly once per year to give a structured place for these questions, though they are always welcome in the #league channel of the discord.

Season 51 - Feedback Report

Season 50 Town Hall (League Calendar) During the season 50 town hall, we discussed potential adjustments to the League calendar, including where breaks should fall and how to distribute the extra weeks in a calendar year. Based on the town hall discussion and polling, it appeared that there was no desire to have the League target specific dates for breaks. Additionally, people were generally against having breaks be any longer, and were looking for a reduced (but not non-existent) break for the Online Championship. As moderators, we felt that it was important to keep the league schedule mapped consistently onto...

Hello everyone! Ever since Season 2, the League has been run by a team of moderators, but there is always one moderator who serves as the de facto leader.

I broke this streak by serving as the administrative moderator for the last 17 seasons, but as I prepare to move to Singapore for good next month, it’s now finally time to hand it off to our next fearless leader, alibby1152.

Season 40 - Championship Recap

Mic Qsenoch vs. nasmith99

The Season 40 Championship featured the top 2 A division players Mic Qsenoch and nasmith99. Mic Qsenoch had just finished a dominant regular season, going 21-9 against five of the strongest players in the League. nasmith99 also had a winning season, going 16-14 and barely sneaking into the Championship match based on a tiebreaker over xyrix, who finished with the same record. As such, nasmith could only afford to tie one of the six games, while Mic just needed to win one (or tie two). That said, neither of them let these circumstances drastically affect their mindsets, mostly taking each...

Quarantines Lead to Explosive Growth

Hello everyone, Season 39 started in mid-March, as lockdowns around the world were coming into effect. It was, unsurprisingly, our biggest season ever. But that was apparently just the beginning.

Season 39 - Newsletter

The First Eight-Tier Season

Hello everyone, Season 39 will be the first Dominion League season with eight tiers. As I’ve been explaining to people, the easiest way to think about it is that we’ve added tiers D/E and E/F, and then renamed all of the tiers to just the letters A through H. In fact, the E and F transition schemes from Season 38 are the exact same as the F and H transition schemes going forward, so it’s really as if E and F players were already in F and H, respectively. Here are those transition schemes again: Other Changes Apart from this...
