    Artifact Assault Masters' League (Xbox 360)

    Artifact Assault Masters’ League (#AAML)
    Hosted by SOD/WHU

    The Artifact Assault Masters’ League is a new artifact assault competition unlike any the ACMP community has seen before. Match outcomes no longer depend on the result of the best out of three games, and will depend on the artifact score over five consecutive games. Points will be awarded to teams that can accumulate a large enough lead or only lose a match based on one artifact. The league will last for 20 weeks starting from Monday 10th June 2013 9am BST until Saturday 26th October 2013 11pm BST with the last week being a week of playoffs between the top eight teams.

    Scoring

    4 points for a win
    2 points for a draw
    0 points for a loss
    DQ- If the opposing team is disqualified your team will gain 4 points
    No show- If the opposing team does not show up (because of extenuating circumstances) and your team chooses not to postpone the match you will gain 3 points
    If your team forfeits a match the opposing team will be assigned a win.

    Bonus Points

    1 extra point if your team accumulates a 5 artifact lead and a minimum of two wins in four games.
    1 extra point if your team only loses the entire match by only one artifact.

    Game Rules

    - Each match is 5 games long. The score does not depend on individual game results but on the results of the whole five games. If your team accumulates a 5 artifact lead and a minimum of two wins in four games you automatically win the entire match and an extra bonus point for an early win.
    - Standard restrictions apply: no gun, no animus hack and no minor hack. Use of either will result in a DQ from the entire match.
    - All matches must be played in private lobbies and all games must have a warm-up game, of which each team must play five minutes, to help eliminate lag issues.
    - The hosting team will remain in party chat while the away team will turn to game chat. If there are any lag issues or general problems the away team must return to party chat immediately.
    - Each team must have an English-speaking player per match.
    - Intentional use of any glitches or exploits will result in a team being disqualified from the entire league.
    - If a player from the leading team lags out the opposing team is not obligated to stop play. If a player from the losing team lags out the game must be stopped until either that player is brought back in. There is a time limit of one minute to get the player back in, and at the point the game will be resumed whether the player is back in the game or not. If the game is a draw the game must be stopped until the player is brought back in. The time limit will still apply.
    - If someone lags out during a game which is currently a draw, play must be stopped unless a team is holding the artifact. Play must continue until the artifact is returned to the base, either by scoring it or the carrier being killed. The game must be stopped at that point with 60 seconds given to get the player back into the game, after which the game must be resumed whether the player has returned to the game or not.
    - If during the fifth game, a player lags out (even if on the losing team for that game) but that team is winning the match overall, the opposing team is under no obligation to stop play.
    - If a team wants to substitute in a player during a match the opposing team are under no obligation to stop play.
    - If a player lags out at any time one of the teams must take a photo of the score and the time immediately and send them to an official.
    -If there is a mass lag out (at least two players per team) before the six minute mark, the game must be restarted. If there is a mass lag out after six minutes the game is stopped at that point and will count towards the overall result.
    - If you have a player with known lag issues please do not have them play.
    - If a player spawns with the artifact they must score it and that point will not count.
    - If a player drops the artifact without being killed they must provide video footage ONLY in the case of a game-changing artifact ie. Your team wins/loses based on that one artifact.
    - Games may be on normal or DLC maps, to be decided by the teams participating in that match.
    - Be respectful and show sportsmanship.

    - The league will be made up of 20 teams and will last 20 weeks. 19 weeks will be spent playing normal matches and determining rankings and the last week will be the playoff week. The season will run from Monday 10th June- Saturday 26th October

    Hey couple questions...So this is going on during the MH season as well....and the Duos tournament? so many overlaps.... :/ idk, just seems there might be too many things going on...Will there be any restriction weeks? Will the stats be counted like the AA season was? Are any of the officials from the last AA season going to involved with this? It might be a good idea at the very least since they had an improvement thread and all. I don't wanna sound like a stick in the mud but it's kinda surprising have this overlapping so many things along with what I know about when the next season was suppose to be run. I wonder if that's even happening now?

    I agree with the above two posters. There's simply too much going on at the moment, and as much as I'd like to, I don't think that RTN will be submitting a team for this.

    Hi, the reason we are starting this now is because we wanted to trial a league before AC4 came out and it kind of had to start soon. We know there are other tournaments but our league would only be one home and one away match per week, so hopefully it won't interfere too much with other tournaments. There will be no official restriction weeks however if the teams in an individual match can agree on some restrictions they are welcome to. Stats will be counted. Officials are to be announced but we hope to work with a few of them to ensure the league is a success. From what I have heard the seasonal still will be run but I cannot be sure. I hope this clears some things up

    I'm sorry guys. We all appreciate the work you've put in for organizing and prepping everything, but I think the general consensus is that it'd be too chaotic to fit two seasons (along with individual tournaments) in such a short period of time. This is something that would run a lot better if we waited until the summer passes.

    It's 20 weeks because we didn't want to have too many matches per week since there are tournaments are going on. It's one home match and one away per week, we wanted it to be a little like the football league in England where there aren't many matches per week and it's more of a permanent league.
