- More free than ever tournament, battle can move at the convenience of the teams.
- Better experience tournament, every team meats every other.
- Equity battles, build in miror, once you have played on the red side of the map, you will play against the same opponent on the blue side.
- 4 crew friendly 2 vs 2 league, we go the effort to place every 4 crew members with another 4 crew to form a complete team. No one is left behind.

Well done for putting in the work and effort to make this project as clear and concise as possible. I will definitely be keeping my eye on how the League develops in the coming days, weeks, and hopefully months.

It's nice to see that you guys are reaching out to the less experienced teams, I can say from experience it is really offputting being stomped every game be clans like RYDR and SPQR (anybody remember the tea timers? Nope because they disbanded after nearly 3 weeks of inconsistent practice and being 5-0'd by every team we played XD)

Like c mentioned, its nice for some tournaments to be more 'new team'-friendly. A cool idea is if the leagues are named after some weapons or in-game stuff.

All the best in organizing it. ;D

Thanks all, it's very nice to see that the idea interest the most experienced teams. Very kind  :) ;)

Well, we are main focused on newer teams yes, but older teams are welcome too. We've thought about you, Gent's, Rydr's, SPQR's, etc ... (all of you that is supporting GoIO since older than i've bought the game.)

1st season will be an "All in the silver league", once it ends the first 1/3 goes in Gold, the middle 1/3 stay in silver, the last 1/3 goes in Bronze.
And diamond ? Opened in priority for an average or 1.5k games played by the total 8 crew, so you'r seat in diamond league is already here but beware to not fall on Gold ;)
2nd season, 3rd, 4th and after, depending on league size, it can be 1 to 3 teams who will switch "league up" or "league down", would definitly love to have 2 but it really depends on league size.


Everything is a subject of change btw, rules, number of leagues can be upgraded with a 5th if needed, website, etc ... our wish is to provide a good competitive experience.

About a day that the league would start, wished to start it this week, depends really on our efforts to contact all little teams and let them register / register them manualy into the league. Can be delayed to the next week maybe.
As rules says, it will be a broadcast about the map pooling that will officially starts the league so ... if you wait for something it will be this stream (on our twitch.tv/flibustiers).

This topic can be used to register into the 1st Season too. But you can wait until 2nd season to jump into Diamond.

I really wish some new, inexperienced teams would sign up. Would be nice to see all the different and unusual builds they would probably take. Unfortunately like always, question is how many new players will even see this. Most of them don't even check forums. I hope you get a lot of applicants. Good luck!

Looks like fun, and as Mean Machine said, it'd be good to see newer teams compete!
I would say try to hype it up, see if you can have it added to the community page in game and then just keep mentioning it in Global Chat a couple of times a day :)
Also possibly (If you have not already done so) post it on the steam forums too. :)

What? Where's the usual whining bitching and moaning over rules/lack of rules/time zone/insert inane random argument here that goes along with every other GOIO event ever created?

Who are you people and what happened to the unbridled hate over the hard work others have put in to make something happen o.O


(In the less sarcastic tone, hope this works out /thumbsup)

Less unbridled hatred, more concerns from people who want to see others succeed. Unfortunately concerns voiced are often mis-interpreted because the written word fails to carry tone of voice, body language and other signs of emotion.

It's alright Imagine! I'm ready to start now.

I do have one criticism. Which is that 2 subdivisions would serve way better than 4 imo given the current number of teams regularly participating in events (allowing for an about equal number of new teams being attracted by the event's format). Although there are a couple of teams who consistently win everything, putting them in a 2-team league of their own would be tantamount to excluding them from the event. And then there is little to choose between the 5 or so next best teams. so you end up with a situation where either the middle leagues are quite unpopulated or league placement feels quite arbitrary.

Hi velvet !

Everything is a subject of modification, depending on the reality we will meet on the next days. We will adapt the number of the leagues depending of the total number of teams who have made an application.

We try at the moment to spread the word :) The website job to calculate points, show the list of matchs easy, etc ... is now done.
The website can carry 15 match in few minutes and show instantly the list on a previous page. > http://goio-league.com/all-matchs/
+ filtering the games by teams, easy to see (Actual data shown on the website is for example, testing)

+1 to this. The website looks sharp! Can't wait for this to really take form.
