Mappool and Rule Changes2018-08-31 20:38 | Vivando
The 13th season of the JJnet ladder is almost ready to start, and that brings in changes to both the mappool and and general rules.

The updated rules are §2, §5 and §6 (plus rules related to them).

New:
§2.1 Clans with 20% or more of the maximum ranking points may not refuse clanwars (not ladder matches) against lower-ranked clans who have got at least 50% or more of the challenged clan's ranking points.
§2.1.1 It does not matter if the challenging clan falls below 50% of challenged clan's ranking points after the challenge has been sent, as long as they had the amount at the point the challenge was sent.

In essence: Clans who challenge another clan must always have at least half as much ranking points as the other clan. This is meant to partially protect points gained through activity, so that another inactive, but theoretically stronger clan shouldn't be able to "plunder" another clan's points with only minimal amount of ranking points. Therefore the challenger should always be at least half as active (or victorious, in terms of ranking points) as the challenged clan. For example:

Example 1:
Clan A has got 80 ranking points, while clan B has got 20 ranking points. Clan B challenges clan A for a clanwar, but clan A may refuse without consequences since clan B has got only 25% of clan A's amount of ranking points.

Example 2:
Clan A has got 99 ranking points, while clan B has got 50 ranking points. Clan B challenges clan A for a clanwar and clan A may not refuse the challenge (considering that it was the first valid challenge received by clan A) because clan B has over 50% of the amount of clan A's ranking points. Practically, clan B has ensured themselves being able to challenge any clan with 35 (due to rule §2.1.3) or more ranking points (as long as the maximum points to finish the season is 100).

New:
§5.1.1 Once all off-season clanwars have been dealt with, the two highest ranked clans will be invited to participate in the season final, and the 3rd and 4th clan will be invited to the bronze final. They shall start as soon as possible.

In essence: Instead of play-offs, we are going to have just a bronze final and a grand final for this season. This should encourage clans to compete more for the very top spots in ranking to be able to win.

New:
§6.2 A clan that has reached a higher ranking during the season than its opponent, has the privilege of picking map order, team color order on every map (can choose team colors on overtime round as well) and is allowed to choose two (2) veto levels for the final/bronze match instead of one.
§6.2.1 All clans will be allowed to change their previous veto level for the final matches.
§6.2.2 In order to let clans prepare for this, the clans have to set their new veto level(s) at least 24 hours before the match is scheduled to start or immediately, if the match is scheduled to start in less than 24 hours.
§6.2.3 The previous rule about the higher ranked clan being able to pick the tiebreaker map does not apply anymore, and the clans will have to follow the normal clanwar procedure on picking the tiebreaker.

In essence: Instead of being able to pick a tiebreaker map, the higher ranked clan is able to choose 2 veto maps for their last game (bronze or grand final). All clans are allowed to change their previous veto for the last game, but at least 24 hours before its scheduled start.

Mappool updates:

Enable previously disabled maps:
-Epitome
-Scrapyard
-Wicked Wood

Disable top-3 most played maps:
Galactic Warfare: 36 12.37 %
Gauntlet: 36 12.37 %
Distopia: 30 10.31 %

Remove 3 least picked maps from the general pool:
Hmk: 7 2.41 %
Trigelateral v3: 4 1.37 %
BBLair: 3 1.03 %

Remove 3v3 maps due to 0 picks:
-Facing Worlds (3v3 only)
-Frontier Falls (3v3 only)
-This Level Is Untitled (3v3 only)

Make 3v3 only due to complexity:
-Nightwalker (xlmnight.j2l)

The counts are indicating the total pick count during the on-season phase of the last season. The percentages are indicating the pick percentage out of all map picks. The new maps from voting/contest will be added shortly after the deadlines. You may view the latest mappool here.
