About me
___________________

I've been very competitive in other games and I'm looking to add League of Legends to that roster. I was the strategy caller for my 3v3 team, top 50 in WoW during Cataclysm (On Ruin battlegroup). Played with and against many multi-glads, rank 1, and tournament players. I was one of three officers in the legion that controlled my Aion server. I generally am the leader of my team because of my communication skills and awareness. The only difference being I plan on sticking with League of Legends now because I don't feel any other game is comparable on a competitive scale.



I want to be sponsored!
_____________________________

When the team proves to be adept at working together and I feel we have an innate advantage over teams in tournaments, only then will I reach out to sponsors. Until that point, I'm not going to embarrass myself, the team, or a sponsor, by going through all necessary steps in the process and then not placing well (or at all). Although, we are in the process of gaining our first (small) sponsorship in order to create a bigger base of credibility for future sponorships.



Times
______________

Practice will begin 5pm Central (3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern), and end at 10pm Central (8pm Pacific, 11pm Eastern). There is generally a half hour block after practice ends for any necessary comments, questions, etc... (So have it open just in case)



Requirements
___________________

Age: 18+.
Champions: Have the champions for your role and know how to win your lane even if youíre being countered.
Elo: Obviously the higher elo the more appeal but that's not the deciding factor for me. I'm looking for skill and knowledge, not a specific number.
LoLReplay: Have it.
Pre/Post game: Before we go into any game, we will discuss what we want to achieve during that game (Composition, strategy, unique/new ideas). After leaving a game we will take time to discuss what we need to improve on. Regardless of winning or losing there will be something to improve upon, individually and collectively. If you slack off during this time or donít take it seriously for any reason you can go back to enjoying solo queue.
Raging: No room for it. I can't stand people that yell at someone, criticism is always a plus and should be heard whenever there is some to give, but there is a fine line between criticism and raging. Do this and you'll be raging in solo queue (Same goes for being negative).
Second Guessing: If you're told to stop farming bot and move up to baron right now, don't say "Hold on I need one more wave of minions" or you'll quickly find yourself clearing minion waves in solo queue.
Showing Up: Everyone will be expected to show up, ready to go, 15 minutes before any scheduled meet time.
Skype: Have it.

If you ignore any part of this application you will not be getting on this team (Adding more than 2 roles, not answering a question, changing a question, etc...). The questions that are there are there for a reason, do not alter them.



But every other team I have been on failed...
___________________________________________

There is such a catastrophic amount of failed teams for a few simple reasons:

1. Players donít feel a connection to others on the team (You donít care).
2. Team Captains are indecisive or too forgiving for players that lose interest.
3. Teams are treated as a right; not a responsibility. To put this simply, no. You got on a team because you were determined, as a player, as someone who will either improve greatly, or help teammates improve greatly. If you get lazy then you are under performing. Thus, you do not deserve to be where you are.
4. New teams are too eager to jump into games with little to no knowledge of each other. If no one works at building foundations (Comps, strats, etc...), everything that is put above that will collapse and fail.

All of these points are closely connected and generally found together (Think back on previous teams you've had and why they've disbanded).



Final Comments
___________________________

Anyone who takes the time to email me will receive a response in a timely manner (To confirm that I received your email). Furthermore, I will respond to all applicants after confirming the players and thanking all for applying. If you don't get a follow-up response from me for a number of days, for some reason, but I haven't sent out the final team composition email to you, assume that I am still going through applicants and you may still receive a response requesting more of you. If you don't submit your application with an email then you aren't properly filling out the application, and it will be ignored.

LoLMiniSeries 11-13-2012 11:24 PM

First off, let me explain the concept of the LoLMiniSeries.

GENERAL INFORMATION
I am looking to host/moderate a 14-week season featuring 16 mild ELO teams at the start of Season 3. 16 teams will be placed into 2 brackets [Lizard/Golem], and further divided into 4 groups. Groups A and B being the Lizard Bracket, groups C and D the Golem Bracket.

Teams will compete weekly to earn points [Series Points/Group Points]. Series/Group points will be discussed later. Round 1 [Weeks 1-8] will focus on group play, seeing the top 3 teams from each group advance to Round 2 [Weeks 9-13]. Groups A and B will then become only the Lizard Bracket, groups C and D becoming the Golem Bracket. At the end of Round 2, the top 4 teams from each bracket will advance to the playoffs [Week 14].

PRIZES
1st Place : $1500 + $100 RP + Entry in next MiniSeries
2nd Place : $500 + $50 RP + Entry in next MiniSeries
3rd/4th Place : Entry in next MiniSeries
(This is all out of pocket expenses. I'm doing this to highlight teams/players that are at a mild skill level & would like to experience small-scale competitive play while bettering/preparing themselves for a higher level of competition.)

SEASON FORMAT
Round 1
During Round 1, teams will go through a series of Bracket Matches, Cross-Bracket Matches, and Group Matches. Each match consists of either a single match or a best of 3 series, each rewarding a different amount points. Bracket Matches and Cross-Bracket Matches are a single match, rewarding 1 Series Point. Group Matches consist of a best of 3 series and a reward of 3 Group Points per match, plus an opportunity for a bonus point if the set is won 2-0. So potentially, Group Matches award a team 7 Group Points.
Round 2
Once group play has finished and the bottom team from each group has been eliminated, teams will then be competing within their respective brackets. There will still be Cross-Bracket Matches, but your performance during bracket play will be what determines if you advance to the playoffs. During Round 2, Bracket Matches will now be played as a best of 3 series. They will reward 3 Series Points per match, plus an opportunity for a bonus point if the set is won 2-0, the same as Group Matches from Round 1. Cross-Bracket Matches will still be a single match rewarding 1 Series Point.
Playoffs
Playoff format will be standard double-elimination bracket play.

GROUP POINTS / SERIES POINTS
Group Points
During Round 1, teams will have 2 separate point values they earn for each match. Group Points will be rewarded for Group Matches. These points count towards your point value in your group, as well as your point value overall. Therefore, Group Points are also Series Points. This can make a big difference when Round 2 comes around.
Series Points
Series Points are basically awarded for each match your team wins. Series Points come into effect more in Round 2 after Group Matches have finished and teams are focused on scoring well in their brackets. However, the amount of Series Points you acquire from Round 1 can drastically affect your overall placement later in the season.

TENTATIVE SCHEDULE
Currently, all matches are scheduled on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, with the exception of the Week 14 taking place Thursday-Sunday. I would assume most people interested in playing League competitively are mostly active on weekends. However, everything is subject to change, and accommodations can be made depending on circumstances. I thought it best to schedule single matches on Fridays & Sundays, and I hopefully did a good job scheduling around different time-zones. I think I made sure everyone should have adequate time to finish class/work on Fridays, and be able to work/do schoolwork on Saturdays and Sundays. Again, match times are all tentative.

I'm not going to post a full schedule on these forums. Teams that are interested can request a copy.

EXTRA INFORMATION

- Each team is guaranteed 28 games before any elimination, potentially more, being as some series will extend to 3 games.

- Live-stream coverage will be offered on select occasions. Playoff matches will all be covered and casted, hopefully.

- Week 1 begins January 4-6. The registration deadline is currently set for December 20.

- I need a team of people willing to help me moderate, stream, cast, advertise, & just oversee the whole season, in general. If you're interested, please contact me.

PERSONAL/TEAM REQUIREMENTS
I am looking to highlight mild ELO players that are interested in experiencing low-scale competitive play. Only players/teams with an ELO between 1250 & 1800 will be allowed to enter.

If you & your team are interested in competing in the League of Legends Mini Series, or if you'd just like more information on the series, please contact me by e-mail or feel free to add this account in-game.
