QUALIFICATION PROCEDURE

The League winners automatically qualify for a place in World ICON. Then an overall Points system is used to determine the remaining places.

.

In New World ICON, if you win the league in one of the 4 seasons, you automatically qualify for World ICON.

If a team who has already qualified for World ICON wins the league a second (or third, etc...) time, then no one automatically qualifies that season.

In the situation where less than 4 Nations have automatically qualified at the end of Season 4, an overall points system based on finishing league position comes into play.

Each team will be assigned 1a points total dependent on each season's final league position.

Bonus Points given for Cup Success.

New World ICON (The ICON Games) Cup -

Winners - 5 points

Runner Up - 3

Semi Finalist - 1point

New World ICON (The ICON Games) Shield -

Winners - 5 Points

Runner Up - 3

Semi Finalist - 1point

The Nation(s) that accumulated the HIGHEST amount of points across all four seasons that has not automatically qualified, gets the remaining qualifying place(s).

In the event of points scores being tied where they matter, the team that managed the highest league position on any season. If still tied, then the team that had more points accumulated over the course of all 4 seasons will advance.

Re: New World ICON (The ICON Games)

...and this is my place to write you all a nice introduction....

Welcome to 'New World ICON'

This is the thread for the managers of the Nations of the 'New World ICON' Sector of 'The ICON Games', namely the Nations of The Americas.

Got a good crop of managers in here, a nice range of new names to seasoned veterans. Should be interesting, only 4 of us will qualify, please see the first post to see how that is done and get back to me if you need clarification or have questions about absolutely anything about this Sector or how it is being run.

Good luck to you all and let's get the mind games and good humoured banter underway!

Re: New World ICON (The ICON Games)

Hello there, fellow managers of nations from The New World. Some big names in this qualification group and looking like it could be one of the harder groups to qualify from.

My in game name is Ryan Gallagher (often confused with the similar Ryan Grosvenor - and just to confuse you all we are both in this qualifier). Some of you I have competed against before, some of you it shall be the first time our swords will cross.

Delighted to be selected to compete in Soccer Manager's first ever The ICON Games and was equally delighted to draw Uruguay as the nation I aim to take all the way to ICON glory (much like the first ever World Cup).

Let me wish you all the best of luck for The ICON Games and soon may it begin!

Re: New World ICON (The ICON Games)

I dont like this automatic qualification for the season winner. It'll mean a few 'one season wonders' will make it to the finals and also for some of them the gameworld will get boring once they qualify for finals. It can be very harsh on some consistent performers who may finish in top three each season but still fails to make the cut. IMO the winners should get a few extra points for each season rather than qualify directly.

I'd suggest the following points structure :

winner gets 15 points, 12 for runners up, 10 points for third, 8 points for 4th then 7,6,5,4, ... and the bottom placed team getting zero points.

This points pattern is a bit similar to what they use in Moto GP or in F1.

As for cup points keep it as it is. No issues there.

This makes sure the season winner gets a decent advantage and nobody qualifies quickly thus making the game world more engaging and intriguing for all till the end of 4th season when the top 4 consistent players will reach the finals deservingly.

Re: New World ICON (The ICON Games)

Just been thinking........Ghora does have a point.

Let's say I win the first season (like i will :)) then iv got three season with nothing to play for.

Some overall points structure may work better than the league winner every season qualifying.

Anymore views ? Don't be shy boys.

Re: New World ICON (The ICON Games)

Hey :D Colombia here! Great crop of managers on here' date=' looking forward to the challenge!

As for the debate on qualification, I think the overall points structure would work better, rather than automatic qualifiers. It would keep everyone interested throughout.[/quote']

The way we have it set people are worried that the managers that qualify will not give their all once qualified. If I win it, I will do whatever I can to win it again, regardless. I don't know all of you but I hope we all have that same attitude. If someone does win it a second/third time, then the points does come into play.

People across the board seem to be not understanding the fact that if you solely rely on a points system, while the leading Nations will never be accused of not caring because they are already through, do you not see the potential for the lesser teams to grow disillusioned with life if they are let's say 15 points behind after 2 or 3 seasons. What is the motivation for them for the latter stages? In the automatic qualification route, EVERYONE that hasn't qualified already still has an even chance of qualification in Season 4 even of they have done poorly previously. That is the way to be no? Reward Champions and otherwise give EVERYONE an even chance?

Plus, While I don't discredit any method of doing it and I think it is a grand consensus that every method had pro points and con points, I actually encourage all Sectors to have different methods to qualify. I like a little above board controversy and talking points and should there ever be the need for 'The ICON Games II' possibly down the road we could enter those discussions a little more seasoned as we would have seen first hand how each method worked.

So I ask at this point, can we leave when is written in the first post as is for this Sector, and see as it progresses as time goes on?

I really don't think that there is a right or wrong way to play this.

After two seasons the struggling teams will still have 30 points up for grabs so they will still be very much in the reckoning IMO. Only after 3 season's we might see last 3/4 teams getting their qualifying hopes dashed but then again they will have only themselves to blame for running their teams so poorly that they are mathematically out of the race. So its not a flawless method but I feel there are more pro's in this structure than the automatic qualification one.

Having said that I'm not exactly dead against the current rule(which is by no means a bad one) and will have no problems to go with it. ;)

I agree with the cumulative points structure - otherwise after I've won the league 4 times what does anyone else have too play for? :P

That is where the points structure would indeed be used (see the first post in this thread). I think league winners deserve a place in the Finals. We all know the drill without a ball being kicked. I for one want to win all 4 titles, which frees up more people to be able to get in via points (rather than knock-out, so to speak).

Anyway, Mr. Pluto, your team is being shipped right to you momentarily!
