    • Call Of Duty: Announcement! & Remastered
      i guess thats a fair point, although from a sales point of view they're still losing money if the people who left call of duty because of that reason don't buy the game. They make enough money as it is though so either way it doesn't matter
    • ADL Season 9 Details & Rules Thread
      TL;DR: We begin May 6th @9pm EST/6pm PST TeamSpeak Server: ts65.gameservers.com:9222 (NO PASSWORD) Click Here to Learn How to set up TeamSpeak Start Time: 9pm  EST/6pm PST every Friday and Sunday How to Participate: Literally all you have to do is show up! Get into our TeamSpeak BEFORE 9pm EST (10-15 minutes), go into the channel Amateur Draft League, then wait for further instruction! NOTE: Anyone can play, regardless of Solo Q rank, as long as you're Level 30 and have at least 16 champions to participate in Custom Tournament Draft. Salutations current/future ADL participant! Season 9 of our renowned League Tournament will begin on Friday, May 6th. We resume our regular schedule with games being organized every Friday and Sunday at 9pm EST (6pm PST). The big issue we are looking to tackle this season is participation. , specifically finding and bringing more cool people  to the ADL. As usual, this means we are making a few structural changes to the tournament: We are increasing the participation bonus to reward and give incentive to those who show up more often. We will be actively recruiting on off-nights on our TeamSpeak. If you'd like to come hang out and help bring in people feel free to join us. The more the merrier! Given how difficult it is for some players to get picked, we are looking for volunteers who are willing to show up every night and sit out if needed to have an even number of participants. This will give newer- and lower-ranked players a better shot at actually getting to play, while also moving the burden of getting left out to those who actually don't mind. Volunteers who don't get included in the draft that night are free to do whatever they'd like after the draft starts (we don't ask you to be available as a ringer or anything), which should provide an opportunity for our pool of volunteers to play together in a more casual setting or just play some ranked instead  Unrelated to participation, but also requested, we will be changing the draft pick order for captains on a nightly basis to balance team selections and hopefully create more meaningful, evenly-matched games. One final change worth mentioning, Riot has apparently changed their policy regarding online prizing for tournaments. We will still be applying for prizes, however, we may have to determine an alternative method of acquiring prizes if we are unable to get our event approved (I'll make a really convincing case though).   Read the explanations below if you're new! How the Amateur Draft League works:  There will be two matches (BO1) per night, so DO NOT LEAVE AFTER THE FIRST GAME IS OVER! Show up in TeamSpeak a little before 9pm EST on Sunday or Friday (about 10-15 minutes works). Right click your name in the TeamSpeak client, click "Change Description", and enter your: Summoner Name, Solo Q Rank, Top 3 positions that you would like to play (or a position you absolutely cannot play), Click "OK".  Move into the Amateur Draft League (Click for Rules!) channel to hang out with everyone until 9 PM EST when the draft starts. Move to the channel that correlates with your current Solo Q rank under Skill Sorting Hat after being asked by the tournament admins. If you're currently unranked, go based off of what you were last season.  If you were unranked last season too, move to bronze you scrubby scrublord! You can attend any night you want; you're not required to follow any type of schedule. If you do show up to play, you ARE required to play BOTH of your games for the night.  If you have a level 30 account with at least 16 champions unlocked on the NA server, all you have to do to play is show up! You don't have to sign up anywhere or do anything beforehand.   There is no minimum Solo Q rank requirement.  Have questions? Hit up vVv Medusa or vVv Organicbear!  How the Draft and Matchmaking Works: The highest ranked players that show up for a given night are deemed team captain for THAT NIGHT ONLY! Team Captains will begin drafting their team out of the remaining players (pick order will be determined based on who shows up). An admin will move people who are picked into their team's channel. An admin will also give each team their first matchup after the draft is done. First match will go in alphabetical order, i.e. Alpha vs Bravo, Charlie vs Delta, Echo vs Foxtrot, etc. After all games from round 1 have finished, an admin will give the second match if needed. Match 2 is always winners vs winners, losers vs losers. In the event of an odd number of winners and losers, the winning team with the lowest-ranked captain will face the losing team with the highest-ranked captain.  After Each Game: Once teams are drafted, you will play a total of TWO GAMES (repeated for emphasis). After a game, the winners of the match will move into the same channel as the opposing team for a voluntary feedback session. Each player will be given the opportunity to ask for feedback on how they played during the game. Once you're done with BOTH games and your feedback sessions, you're welcome to leave, start inhouses, find someone to Duo Q with, or anything else you'd like to do!      Official ADL Rules: You will need to have a minimum of 8 games total played in the ADL (so 4 total nights) to qualify for prizes (if any are to be awarded). 
       
      Captain and Team Assignment: Captains will be the highest ranked players in attendance with one captain per 5 attendees. If a player is uncomfortable being captain, or is unfamiliar with the player pool, the captain may use the first pick to select someone who would then draft the rest of the team. The lowest ranked captain will be seeded at Alpha and then it will go in ascending order with the highest rated player on either Delta, Foxtrot or Hotel depending on the number of total players.

      In order to prevent captains with similar skill levels from suffering a disadvantage due to slight difference in solo queue rank, captain pick order will be randomized within the following tiers: Platinum 5-3 Platinum 1 and 2 Diamond 5-3 Diamond 2-1 < 50 LP Diamond 1 >= 50 LP Master Challenger Matchmaking: In order to have more even matches, we will be matching teams in alphabetical order for the first match, with winners playing winners and losers playing losers in the second match (randomized by the list randomizer at Random.org if needed). If there is an odd number of winning and losing teams after the first match, the highest-ranked captain from the loser's pool will play the lowest-ranked captain from the winner's pool.
       
      Picking Order: First, captains are selected and assigned a team designation, then four rounds of picking commences. Pick order will be determined each night based on any obvious skill disparities among captains and the number of remaining high-elo players available to be drafted.
       
      Hosting and Side Choice: For Game 1, Blue side will be assigned to the team closer to A alphabetically. For example, in Echo vs Foxtrot, Echo is blue side since E comes before F alphabetically. For Game 2, Blue side will be assigned to the lower-ranked captain (or the losing team in the case of a winner vs loser match).
       
      Pausing/Connection Issues: Pauses may be done as necessary. If someone disconnects or is having lag issues, standard procedure is to state the problem in all chat and then pause the game. The integrity of the match is the standard. Each team will be allowed 7.5 minutes of pause time for lag and disconnection issues, and teams may use both of their times (up to 15 minutes) on a single player/issue if needed. If an issue occurs before two minutes or first blood, the game can be remade with no penalty to either side. 
       
      Leaving/AFK: If a player is having connection issues that cannot be resolved, rage quits, or inexplicably leaves the game, that player will be given a 2 night event suspension on the first offense and a season ban on the second offense. We want players who are willing to commit to the designated two games and want ensure that we do not welcome those who are careless or are willfully hostile toward the experience of their teammates and opponents. A substitute will be found if there are any games remaining that need to be played or a match is remade. 
       
      Replacement/Substitute Players: If a player does need to be replaced, the sub will be required to be of the same solo queue rank or lower. Extenuating circumstances can be made for up to 3 tiers up (Gold 4 being replaced by a Gold 1) but never higher than a division and only with the consent of the opposing teams captain and only if finding a player equal to or lower is unavailable. If a substitute is unable to be located, the team with the missing player will forfeit the game.
         
      Are you excited about the beginning of Season 8? Should we have made any other changes? Be sure to communicate with us!! If you have questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions, contact Organicbear or Medusa and we'll be more than happy to help you <3 (srsly, with anything at all... except math).   See you on May 6th at 9pm EST (6pm PST) for the Amateur Draft League!!
