Hello EBL Teams,

I hope you all are doing fine surviving the winter in the north and the hot summer in the south. What is coming in Beta Season IV? Yesterday EisFrei made some changes because of the season count. In the last 3 season we tried to make it equal for small and big teams by using the average AP count on the whole team but now big teams having a disadvantage. Lets check out the new mode we are testing the upcoming month.

Season

The season starts as always on the 2nd of the month and ends in the following month on the 1st.

Changes

  • a team has to have a minimum of 4 members which make an upload or it won´t be shown in the scoreboard or won´t receive points in the season for daily, weekly or monthly (We already implemented this change and it is active since yesterday. Sorry for the late information.)

  • only the best 8 players of a team will count and the average AP will be taken

  • A minimum of 4 players need to have played

  • The list of gained AP is sorted descending

  • Up to 8 entries will be taken from the beginning of the list

  • The average of those entries will be the team score

==Using only 8 players gives the teams a rest period. Players can rotate and don´t have to play every day. ==

  • the season champion will be the Team which won the Recursion division

  • the first 4 teams in a division will advance to the next divsion

  • the last 4 teams in a divsion will descend to the lower divison

  • seat 5 and 6 will stay

Playoff Score

Playoff picks will be calculated by the monthly scoreboard of the last month.

  • the 10 best leading teams of the monthly Scoreboard will be placed into the playoff round

  • every team from every divsion can compete in the playoffs

  • the winner of the playoffs is global champion for a month

Playoff Round:

Wild Card Round

4th: Wild Card A 8th vs. 9th
5th: Wild Card B 7th vs. 10th

Quarter Finals

6th: 5th vs. 6th Game 3
7th: 3rd vs. 4th Game 4
8th: 1st vs. Lowest Winning Seed From Wild Card Round Game 5
9th: 2nd vs. Highest Winning Seed From Wild Card Round Game 6

Semi Final

13th: Winner Game 3 vs Winner Game 5 Semi Final A
14th: Winner Game 4 vs Winner Game 6 Semi Final B

Final

18th: Winner Semi Final A vs Winner Semi Final B

Additional informations for new members

Step One: Registration

visit https://liga.erleuchte.de

Now you have 3 options to register.

Option 1:

use v.enl.one

  • if you already registered at this website and reached lvl 2 you will be accepted without problems

  • v.enl.one is our partner and we use the data from this website to get the infos we need

  • if someone will be blacklisted on v.enl.one it will happen in the EBL as well to keep the community green


Option 2:

use Google

  • login with your Google account

  • the registration will ask you now to fill in your agent name and if you want to join a team that already exists

  • if you join a team the moderator of the team has to accept you. we as an admin won't do this unless the mod has problems and tells us to do it for him

  • finish the registration and send it


Option 3:

use Telegram bot @EnLigaBot

  • same as Option 2

After Registration:

If you have send the registration as explained in Option 2 and 3 you use the @EnLigaBot to log in again or you will be redirected to another page which looks like this. Use the link help channel on Telegram to join it.

alt

You copy the text EBL: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and paste it into the faction chat of the game.

This message will be send to a place on the intel map where we as an admin will check it.

Why?

  • Only a green account can send it in the faction chat

  • we will see your registered agent name and the verification code

After Acception

After we accepted you, you have some additional options:

Option 1: Personal Settings

  • use the menu button if you use a cellphone or at the computer use the dropdown in the right corner next to your agent name

  • in settings you can choose a team to join if you haven´t done this yet (because you had to check on the map first to see which team looks best for you)

  • you can set the option if you want to receive the upload reminder on a daily, weekly, monthly basis or never

  • you can put a check mark on receive admin broadcast to be informed by us if a new newsletter is out or when a playoff game for your team is about to start. We can broadcast to all or to specific teams only

  • set your timezone

  • set your reminder when you want to receive a notification to upload your stats

  • you can set if your G+ or V contact can by shown in https://liga.erleuchte.de/users

  • finally you can also create a new team at Team name. You should be placed as a mod for the team

  • just give us a shout if that won´t work. It seems a bit buggy at the moment.


Option 2: Teams

  • you visit the site https://liga.erleuchte.de/teams and check on the map if there's already a team in your area and try to register for it or create a new one

  • you can click on a team's name to see the details (agent names, moderators and games)

  • only the admins can see your g+, v.enl.one and telegram profile if you want to get in touch with a team you have to do it the old way, use the faction chat (security of your personal data is an important fact)

Check your teammates

My home town community Dresden asked me if we could filter some stats so they can see who did best.

  • e.g. https://liga.erleuchte.de/teams/17

  • now you can check on 8 stats in any team

  • you can filter who is best by clicking on the name of the stat you want to know

  • you have shortcuts to daily, weekly and monthly for only this team

  • it is not finished yet but you will see the 8 stats in daily, weekly and monthly too

Why

Now you can check on your own teammates if they did send an upload and if they have mistakes in the upload.

Option 3: Scoreboard


Option 4: Season


Option 5: Playoffs and friednship games

  • if you click on https://liga.erleuchte.de/games you will see future and past playoff games

  • if you click on a team's name you will see the members and mods

  • if you click on a date you will see the players and the score they made


Option 6: Personal Stats

Android

  • use the share button on your agent profile

  • please don´t try to send it directly to the @EnLigaBot

  • save the screenshot and send it as 'file' from your gallery (as 'photo' / 'compressed' won't work)

iOS

  • iphone users please use the email way and please check if your email ID is connected to the email app which you used to register for the EBL

  • another way is to save the pic in dropbox and upload it from there

  • if it won´t work out, please use the fourth information from Option 6 and upload it directly on the website at your stats page

Checking your stats

  • the bot will send you a message which will tell you if your values seem to be correct or if the system had some trouble with it

  • if the values are ok you can relax

  • if the system has a problem you should click on check values which will send you directly to your upload and you can check it for any errors


Option 7: Send your stats

  • READ THE RULES https://liga.erleuchte.de/rules

  • on a weekly and monthly basis you can upload your stats any time and the first and last upload will count to calculate the AP you made

  • on a daily basis we have a little trouble to make the cut, we can´t provide a 24h cycle because of the time stamp

  • let me explain the DAILY Upload

  • our system is connected with the CET timezone

  • https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=first+day+of+month+20:00+europe%2Fberlin

  • every day at 8 p.m. CET we make a cut

  • at this point the scoreboard and the season will be calculated

  • the next 16 hours your uploads will not count for the daily but for the weekly and monthly stats

  • you have a 9 hour time window to upload your stats

  • you have to set your timezone in your personal setting

  • the @EnLigaBot will send you a notification

Creating a Screenshot

Some players nevr used a tool to safe their stats and I would like to help them. On the one hand how should you know how to do it and on the other hand it is a bit funny for somebody who knows how to do it. So please take this as an help and don´t feel offended, the fault is the interpretation of screenshot. Sharing is the right word.

  • Don´t use the Home Button + Power Button to create a screenshot.

  • use the share button in your stats

  • please be sure you selected All and not Monthly, Weekly or Now

Upload Time

  • in https://liga.erleuchte.de/games you will see the upcoming games

  • it shows the starting date and the time

  • every teammember has to send their upload between the given times

  • every playoff game will last 24 hours

  • wrong uploads won´t be accepted

  • earlier or later uploads won´t be accepted

  • the time is our local time the Central European Time, CET

  • every game will set differently if the teams don´t share the same timezone

  • e.g. if a team from Moscow is competing against a team from Chicago it would like this

    • Team Moscow starts at 8 p.m.

    • Team Chicago starts at 11 a.m.

Why

  • in https://liga.erleuchte.de/games you would see a game which starts at 22 o´clock

  • this is 10 p.m.

  • Moscow is 2 hours ahead of CET

  • Chicago is 7 hours behind CET

  • in your personal settings you can set your regional timezone

  • with this option we will try to show every team the time in their timezone

To calculate the difference the system doesn´t allow us to have the same date.

alt


Scoreboard Score

  • The daily scoreboard and season points can only be given to you if you uploaded the day before and today because we need a daily difference.==

  • The weekly starts and ends on every sunday but uses your first and last upload of the week==

  • The monthly starts and ends on the 1st of every month and uses the first and last upload of the month


TG Bot

Now you can link the @EnLigaBot to your team TG group by saying /enablebroadcasts. All of your team will receive the broadcast in this chat.

Swag idea

The buttons are done. A friend of mine just took the EBL Logo from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1958423 and made them for me. She only made 24. I think I have to send one of them to EisFrei if he creates somthing great, so all of them are gone and I still own him some more :-)
