League Overview
Welcome to the new league...


League Rules
Rule # 1 Your clan can consist of just one member (you) or up to the maximum amount allowed, which is eight.
Rule # 2 Your clan may play as many games per day as they desire. However, your clan can only register ten matches per day versus the same clan.
Rule # 3 Any game can be a CW match from One on One to Three on One matches. The oddly manned matches are to handicap better clans and entice lesser skilled clans to play. (Each league has a hardcoded limit to the amount of warriors that can play in a match, please check the settings above)
Rule # 4 Account passwords are hashed and can not be seen by anyone - including the owners of clanwars.  If you forget your password it can be changed and emailed to you, please contact a global admin for help with this process.
Rule # 5 User names will be deleted if they are left unused for a period of time. This period is currently set for three months.
Rule # 6 All CLAN WARS and league admin decisions are final, please don't ask for any decision to be over ruled.
Rule # 7 You may be a member of different clans, but those clans may never play each other during the length of an existing tournament.
Rule # 8 Clan matches must be reported within one hour of the completion of the match.
Rule # 9 All clan members competing in a CW match must wear their TAGs in front of their name while in the lobby and in the game. In addition, your warrior account on the league must precisely match your in-game name, and include your clan tag. Therefore, if you change your clan you will need a new warrior account.
Rule # 10 If you switch clans you must make your old and new BOSSES aware of the situation. Your new clan can not play your old clan for the entire length of the tournament. Doing so will result in a violation and all clans involved will be subject to punishment.

For more info check out this topic at our smak forums.
Rule # 11 You are required to save all replays for the current month, and retain them until at least one week into the following month.
Rule # 12 Each league admin sets a limit to how many new warriors can join a specific clan in each tournament. This limit is currently set to 16.
Rule # 13 If, one hour after you won a clan match, your opponent has not report the match, you may file an Auto Report. Click the "file AR" link in your warrior portal, fill in the information regarding your opponent, and attach the replay. The League Admins will then add the win for you and give the losing clan a points penalty for not reporting the loss.
Rule # 14 If you want to change the results of a match that is already in our battle logs (which includes removing it) file an Alter-match request (AM) on the Alter-match forum, accessible via your portal page. In most cases you will need to attach the replay.
Rule # 15 If you are wearing your clan tag in a game, it counts as a league match. This means that if you use an auto-match or quick match feature and you get matched against another player and you are both wearing league tags, the game counts as a league match. Players may decide between themselves not to count the match, however, if an AR is filed by one of the players the admin will have no choice but to count the game.
Rule # 16
Time limit for filing AR matches is currently set to 48 hours. This means that a warrior has 48 hours to AR a match that took place. Any matches submitted more the 48 hours old will be discarded. The 48 hour rule is subject to Admin dismissal at any time.


League FAQ
Question: How Do I invite people to join my clan and how do I know if they have accepted or declined?


Answer: Only clan bosses can invite other league members to join a clan. In the "CLAN ROSTER" Menu option in "Clan Headquarters" you will find the option to invite people to join your ranks. An invite will ultimately either be accepted, declined or ignored. The invited player will receive a message in his inbox that he/she has been invited to join your clan. If the invitation is accepted or declined a notice is posted on your clan event calendar and the boss who posted the invitation will receive a private message in his/her inbox telling him the invitation was accepted or declined along with a reason - if the invitee responds with one. If the invitation is ignored it will stay posted in "clan roster" with a length of time in days that it has been ignored. YOu can choose to withdrawl the invitation at any time or leave it offered as long as your choose.
Question: Does my account or clan ever get removed?


Answer: After X amount of days of inactivity your account or your clan will get removed. Check support for current league settings (days inactivity until deletion, roster size limits, max invites permitted, max games per day vs a clan, etc...). If the clan you are in gets removed but your account satisfies inactivity levels your account will stay intact, your clan status will move to "Independent". If you or your clan have won a championship then you will never be removed. Sometimes other criteria will assume you or your clan immortality, typically a certain amount of wins or game played, check with the league admin for that info.
Question: are tags like this &ltbr&gt permitted in my clan name and or tag?


Answer: No, certain non friendly HTML symbols are not permitted to be entered in certain displayed areas.
Question: How to I get an answer to a question that is not listed here?


Answer: If it is a league specific question, please up to the top of this page and email the league admin.  His or her email link will appear at the top.

If this is a global issue, meaning you have a question regarding the clanwars gaming network in general please visit the global support page which you will find linked from the main portal page.


Point System Explanation
ELO pt. system (modified)
The ELO pt. system that is used here, is based on the original ELO pt. system (Link here) but is somewhat modified in how point losses are handled and it is scaled in other ways as well, explained below.
In this system points for a victory are limited to a set value (called the K - value). For example K might be 100 for a 1v1 match or 150 for a 2v2 match, etc... That number is set in the control panel ('League Settings -> League Options') and scales accordingly based on match size, by 33% for each significant jump in a match size.
100% of the K value is only awarded for matches where the opponents are very far away in rank and the underdog wins. For example, if there are 100 clans in the league and #1 plays #100, the full K value will be awarded if the #100 ranked clan wins. If #1 wins only a very small percentage of K is available. If clans are very close in rank, for instance #1 plays #2, roughly 50% of K is avaliable. As ranks separate and the expected, higher ranked clan wins, the K value shrinks further away from it stated value, and conversely as the underdog or lower ranked clan wins K grows close to it's full value. The variable that describes this is referred to as E. When clan #100 beats #1, E might be .99 and vice versa E might be .01
This system is in place for both warriors and clans. K never reaches 100% until the tournament draws to a close. It starts out automatically devalued at the beginning of each tournament and grows closer to 100% as the tournament continues. To re-iterate with an example, K might be set to 100 pts in the control panel. And 100% of K may be awarded when a very low ranked clan beats a high ranked clan, but even while K = 100 in this instance, at the beginning of each tournament it is devalued automatically back to 1/2 of that. If the exact same match was played the last day of the tournament 100% of K would be awarded. As the tournament moves toward it's conclusion K becomes closer to be worth it's full value - this is called the intensification period.
Point losses are relegated to clans or warriors only, who fall into the Power Range and bonuses are applied to clans or warriors who win against clans or warriors in the power win range. Point losses are lower as clans fall lower into the range and are not applied at all when clans or warriors fall out of that range.
The power win range is set in the 'League Options' menu.
ELO point system applies to both clans and warriors. During warrior point calculations the average rank of the total warriors involved is used for the point calculation.
Two other factors influence the ELO pts awarded. They are called O and W. O is the offset that devalues the points as same clans play themselves in the same day. So if clan A plays clan B 10 times in one day, each game is worth less. W is the variable that defines the intensification period, as the tournament gets closer to ending W grows closer to 1.
In the end ELO pts are calculated as such = K x E x W x O
K - K value (explained above)
E - .01 to 1 (based on if the underdog or favorite won and how close in rank they were)
W - starts at .5 on day one of a new tournament and grows to 1 on the last day of the tournament
O - offset starts at 1 when same clans play against each other for the first time on a day, second match it is .9, third match it is .8, etc... After 10 matches against similar clans it is .1 and stays at .1
*Note: K can be set in the control panel, and how many times clans may play each other in one day can be set in the control panel as well.
