UIC Swiss: Embracing World Online Pool

 

Approximately two years ago the late Roy and I discussed the possibility of having geographical teams in UIC Swiss to replace league teams.


With the general decline of leagues in recent years because of fewer players participating, and also because of the difficulties between some leagues with excessive drama and ill-feeling, we felt that having geographical teams would benefit UIC Swiss enormously.


Another reason to bring in geographical teams was because of the growing feeling that both Deadstrokes and Straightshots always dominated the competition. Stacking teams was a big concern as well and there and have been complaints about the strategy of recruiting players from Bar do Lado solely to strengthen a team.


Clearly members want an even competition and this has not been the case for quite a while now. Unfortunately, due to time restraints Roy and I were unable to implement the new format despite considerable discussion.


Yet the same concerns still apply to this very day and I feel that UIC Swiss has gone as far as it can go under the present format.


Making the radical change to geographical teams will improve the competition enormously I feel. Players would be able to proudly represent their countries or geographical region. The quality players would be dispersed amongst the teams much more evenly rather than picking and choosing the best teams to play for.


Straightshots (14 wins) and Deadstrokes (6 wins) have won 20 of the 23 seasons under the present format, so clearly a new approach is needed to fire much-needed life back into this popular competition.


The world has been split into geographical regions as best as possible. The IP location for every member has been established and the number of members per region have been indicated below, based on membership up to the end of February 2018.


The geographical regions – and the team prefixes needing to be used by players – are as follows (based on UIC Swiss membership up to and including April):


America Pacific: Team prefix: AP_

America Central: Team prefix: AC_

America Eastern North: Team prefix: AEN_

America Eastern Mid: Team prefix: AEM_

America Eastern South: Team prefix: AES_

Asia: Team prefix: ASIA_

Canada: Team prefix: CAN_

Europe: Team prefix: EUR_

United Kingdom: Team prefix: UK_

Rest of the World: Team prefix: ROW_


On the custom site, under TEAMS & POINTS SYSTEM, you'll find lists of each team, based on IP locations from members signed up to May 2018. If you are in the wrong team, you will have to withdraw and rejoin so that we can check your new IP location, which, of course, must match the appropriate team. A member must not get someone else to sign him or her up (which would give an incorrect IP location) – this is strictly forbidden and would count as cheating when detected. 


The feedback so far has been very encouraging and most members welcome the new concept. If anyone would like to discuss this matter further, or has any queries, questions or concerns, please email me on en_dk@yahoo.com or contact me on Trillian on ENDK2016.


Of course, I know there will be a minority who oppose this concept. All I can say is please give it a chance and be patient with this new format. Nobody is being forced to play – everyone is free to play or not to play. But the positive amongst you will appreciate the reasoning and embrace this much-needed change for the better.


ADDITIONAL COMPETITIVE INTEREST

To create an exciting climax to a season, I hope to introduce PLAY-OFF TOURNAMENTS once the regular season – ending after Week 12 – has been completed. These will be played in three categories and will be based on the final standings of the regular season, as follows:


Individual Gold Trophy – Players in 1st to 10th positions inclusive – True Swiss, 9 rounds

Individual Silver Cup – Players in 11th to 20th positions inclusive – True Swiss, 7 rounds

Individual Bronze Shield – Players in 21st to 50th positions inclusive – True Swiss, 5 rounds


All games will be regular 8, anything goes (as per normal). The final regular season standings will clearly show the categories. The onus will be on players to jump the correct play-off tournament – if he or she jumps the wrong one, he or she will be immediately disqualified. If players tie in the regular season standings, entries may be altered to accommodate additional players as necessary. If there is a tie between the competition's leading players, there will be a play-off over 5 rounds to be staged the following week.
