It’s time to sign up for the new season of the Online Memory League! Please let us know if you want to play in this season - even if you played last season, you still need to register for this one!
The Online Memory League Championship is a competition open to everybody. Competitors are divided into divisions of ten to sixteen players, depending on who and how many players register - new players this season are put into divisions based on their leaderboard position, so you will be playing against people at the same kind of level as you.
In a season, each competitor will play each of the others in the division once, with one match per week, on a schedule drawn randomly at the start of the season. Players can be flexible about when they play their matches, depending on availability and circumstances, but should try to stick to the schedule as much as possible. You will need to communicate with your opponents - leave messages on the Memory League website, or the Art of Memory forum, or the Facebook group “World Memory Championships”. We can help you get in touch with people - just send me a message if you need help!
Matches will consist of six games - each player chooses three different disciplines, with the choice alternating. The first player on the scheduled match list chooses the first discipline; the schedule will be arranged so that each player gets a roughly equal distribution of ‘home’ and ‘away’ matches. Draws are possible, both in individual disciplines and in the match as a whole.
In all these matches, the player listed first gets the first choice of discipline. It goes like this:
Player 1’s first choice
Player 2’s first choice
Player 1’s second choice
Player 2’s second choice
Player 1’s third choice
Player 2’s third choice
Remember, each player’s three choices must be three different disciplines. So it might go Words, Cards, Names, Words, Numbers, Images. Or Numbers, Cards, Names, Images, Words, Words. But if the two players both hate Names and Words, for example, the match might go Cards, Cards, Numbers, Numbers, Images, Images!
If the match is a 3:3 draw, the players can (if they both agree to it) play a one-game ‘decider’, which can be any discipline they choose. If they don’t both agree to play the decider, then the match is a draw.
The league table gives two points for a match won, one for a match drawn. Players on the same number of points are ranked by number of disciplines won.
At the end of the season, the bottom players (red highlights) in each division are related to the division below, and the top players (green highlights) in each division are promoted to the division above. There are play-offs between the amber-highlighted places in the upper division versus amber-highlighted places in the lower, to determine promotion and relegation.
The top four in the first division go into play-offs for the grand title. 1st versus 4th and 2nd versus 3rd, followed by a grand final to determine the League Champion!
The season lasts three months. It is important to keep in touch, and let your opponents know if you won’t be available. People who disappear without playing their games will be removed from the league!
This season will be played with NO BLUE SCREEN, as a trial run to see how it works! You won’t see when your opponent has clicked finish!
