Online Memory League Championship - season 6!

The new season of the Online Memory League Championship will start on Monday October 7th. If you want to register, please fill in the form at this link: https://memoryleague.com/#!/league/register

New rules for this season - the season starts on October 7th, and ends on November 17th, with playoffs starting on November 18th. Divisions will be around 6 players, meaning everybody will have 5 matches to play in that time period. No exceptions - anybody who has not played all their matches by that point will be removed, starting with the players who have played the fewest matches, until everybody in a division has played everybody else.

Before the season starts, we will confirm with every registered player that they still want to compete, and make sure they have at least one match (preferably more than one!) scheduled. Hopefully this will mean we don’t have so many drop-outs and we can get the season finished!

Players will be allocated to divisions based on their current ranking as at the date the season starts, but if they’ve already earned a position in a division based on the last season, they can’t be put in a division lower than that.

The usual rules apply to the season - here they are, copied and pasted from last time:

The Online Memory League Championship is a competition open to everybody. Competitors are divided into groups of around six players (with each division consisting of two groups) - 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 group 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.

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 two in each division are relegated to the division below, and the top two in each division are promoted to the division above. There are play-offs between the runner-up in each group and the second-last in a group from the division above to determine promotion and relegation.

The top four in the first division go into play-offs for the grand title, followed by a grand final to determine the League Champion!

All these rules can be changed if enough people want to change them, but I think this is the consensus of what people want! Please post any comments or questions here! :slight_smile:

These are the players who have signed up so far - we will email everybody to ask for confirmation that they want to play, before the season starts.

There are quite a few more people who registered some time ago but haven’t confirmed yet. I’ll email them shortly to check whether they still want to play, and update the list above with any additions.

Note that you don’t need to adjust your preferences before a League game - you’ll automatically get the International names when the game type is “League”.

Hi Simon,

Yes, I want to confirm my participation to season 6 :slight_smile:

Sorry but I hadn’t understood that a confirm was requested, I’m out of memory league since the end of August, I was not keeping myself up to date to the recent events.

Have a nice day
