NRLCEO 2014 : Legends of League

Post by Millsy » February 1, 2014, 11:29 am

2014 Legends of League

THE RETURN OF THE LEGENDS

Due to technical glitches in 2013, the Legends of League competition was vastly reduced, but have no fear; in 2014 it’s back bigger and better ever!

The new platform on TheBench caters exactly for competitions like the Legends of League.

This year, the Legends of League Tournament has been developed to make it an even more exciting competition to be involved in.
This tournament will be run utilising a promotion and relegation system with 3 tiers of competitions. Each tier will have the same set of rules and scoring system and at the end of the season, a number of successful teams will be promoted while some strugglers will be relegated.

Below is an outline of each ‘Tier’ of Competition with a diagram on the next page explaining it even further.

The Top Tier is the Champions League Competition where 10 victorious Legends of League teams will vie for the honour of becoming the ultimate Champion of Champions. The winner each year will be automatically invited to defend their title, the following year.

The Second Tier is made up of 6 Legends of League Competitions where 8 teams in each competition will compete for a solitary position in the Champions League. The four lowest ranked teams will be relegated while the remainder will be invited back the following year for another shot with the champion obviously defending their title.

The Third Tier is made up of six Rookie Promotion Competitions. Each of these have been named after potential superstars of tomorrow.

In each of these competitions, all four finalists will progress to the Legends of League Competitions where they will take on seasoned NRLCEO Coaches.

For 2014 only, entry into the Second Tier will only be available to previous participants, but the Qualifying Leagues will be open to everyone.

The entry fee for coaches to enter Legends of League Competitions (Tier 2) and Rookie Promotion Competitions (Tier 3) is $10 per team.

The 6 Legends of League teams - Wally Lewis, Andrew Johns, Clive Churchill, Allan Langer, Arthur Beetson and Mal Meninga

The 6 Rookie Promotion Competitions - Anthony Milford (wanker), Sam Irwin, David Nofoaluma, Luke Brooks, George Burgess and Ngani Laumape.

NEW DRAFT METHOD IN 2014

New to NRLCEO this year is the recruitment method – the ‘Hesitation Draft’ which is exclusive to Legends of League and Qualifying Leagues.

The ‘Hesitation Draft’ involves three phases of recruitment:

PHASE 1

Once the competition is full and the draft time allocated to the competition set, Phase 1 allows each team in the competition to draft 4 players only in the first 24 hours from that time. There is no limitation on the type of player recruited but if a coach recruits a) more than 4 players or b) before the draft time commences, then that team will lose those illegally drafted players who will re-enter the Free Agent pool. They may also be subject to explusion from the competition after one warning.

PHASE 2

Phase 2 commences exactly 24 hours after the initial starting time of Phase 1 and allows coaches to recruit 6 players in the next 24 hours. This means that at the completion of Phase 2 (48 hours after Phase 1 commenced), each team will have a maximum of 10 players. Again, if excess players are drafted, then that coach will lose those players who will immediately be terminated into the Free Agent pool.

NOTE: Each competition will be moderated by viewing the Player Movement Log on site. Any players illegally recruited will be returned to the Free Agent pool and the terminations will count towards that team’s overall termination tally. (Limited to 25 terminations in Legends of League and Qualifying Competitions)

PHASE 3

Phase 3 commences 48 hours after the start of Phase 1 and allows coaches to complete their squads – recruiting 12 players. Phase 3 will continue until all teams are complete. Once again, coaches who jump the gun and recruit early will see those players terminated from the squad and returned to the Free Agent pool.

NOTE: There will be no phase commencement notifications. Coaches can check the Player Movement Log to see whether they have recruited within the legal timeframes.

Legends of League Competitions

The most competitive public NRLCEO Leagues are ready to roll. The first of the competitions will be completed tonight as eight compete for the title in the Wally Lewis Competition. The next to drop will be the Arthur Beetson tonight!

The next five competitions are being setup to fill and entry is $10 per club which will fund the prizes for each individual competition.

Arthur Beetson: Drafting 8pm (EST) Tuesday 4th Feb and 8pm Wednesday 5th Feb

Allan Langer: Drafting 7pm (EST) Monday 10th Feb and 7pm Tuesday 11th Feb

Andrew Johns: Drafting 7pm (EST) Monday 10th Feb and 7pm Wednesday 12th Feb

Clive Churchill: Drafting 8:30pm (EST) Tuesday 11th Feb and 8:30pm Wednesday 12th Feb

Mal Meninga: To be advised

The first people to reply to this email will be able to join in the fun. Let us know if there's a specific competition you want, or whether you just want to join any. If you miss out, don't worry as there are six Tier 3 competitions to come!

The draft method is aimed at getting completed in the minimal time possible, but allowing everyone to have even competitions.

Each CEO will be able to draft four players in the first hour, then have a break to reassess. You will then draft another six on the same night to have 10 players total. It will be quick clicking! Then another 24 hours later you will be able to draft another six players. Then one hour later again you can draft the remaining six players.

It will be interesting to see how this new draft goes, has to be better than the 24hr **** show, I hope the quick draft returns in 2015, I'm not doing the 24hr again.

I'm not sure if we get invited back from the 2012 comps we were in, I hope so.

Mike did ask me if Id like to be on standby for the Champions League, someone was being a pain and hadn't rejoined, I haven't heard anything more though.

The way I read it , its a free for all for 4 players in Phase one , you don't have to wait for your turn , just wait for the allotted time to start

We have 2 draft days assigned but the 3rd phase is on 48hrs after the 1st phase commences , therefore it will be a 3rd day

and its 22 players not 25

Ferret replied to an email I asked about the drafting.

So to clarify for anyone who needed it or for just me


No draft order. 4 picks as fast as you can in the first round. Then a one hour break and then another six players as fast as you can the first night.

Second night you will pick 6 as fast as you can, take a break and then 6 again an hour later.

Your Comp Admin will email you how you will be notified to start. Bona will be your Guru

Yep he's in there.
The admin will give a countdown saying 1 hour to go, 20 minutes and then 5 minutes. The last one he will say start drafting at which stage you go to the "players" page and click the + icon. Have quite a few backup options as players will going flying all over the place. I missed out on Fifta so took Hayne instead.

So far I've got Farah, Thurston, Inglis and Hayne

Can you set up a pre draft , so your players are pick automatically :)

What I plan to do have four or fives pages open on the team with the player I want so I can just select the + to add that player then move across tabs to the next player

Is that possible ?

I see that , I cant see the log though

Thats probably the only issue with the draft theres no control other than someone overseeing it.

I still dont know why I didnt get the invite into Langers , I was minor premiers :cry:

It looks different

Last year the quick draft was good ( when it worked ) , everyone picked a player every 2 mins for 25 rounds.


If your slow out of the gates you may struggle to pick up a gun in the 1st round.

This system works better for handling any connection/site problems, any person that had issues can still get 10 goodish players.

The only rule you need to follow is do not pick any players I want. Best way to avoid any confusion is wait until I have completed my picks
