The SpyParty Competitive League is now a Thing

As anybody who follows SpyParty knows, I’m drowning in stuff to do making the game, so sometimes (often?)1 I drop the ball with organizing things, so it’s so amazing to have a super-supportive community that pick up the slack and do a lot of the organizing that’s necessary for competitive play!

Hardcore camping-sniper and in-spite-of-that all-around great person and competitive gamer krazycaley has organized a league for competitive SpyParty with the totally nonintuitive name: SpyParty Competitive League!

Each week, there will be a big cast every Sunday starting at 6:30pm US Pacific on http://twitch.tv/spyparty

magician1099 whipped up a quick logo for the SCL!

I have joined this league, and I am very out-of-practice at my own game, so come watch me lose my first match with elvisnake today, Friday, Nov 20, at 6pm US Pacific at http://twitch.tv/spyparty.

krazycaley is a lawyer in real life, and the list of league rules reads like he’s a lawyer in the game too, so I won’t reprint them all here, but it’s a normal tiered league with divisions and a season and then championships to see who advances and who doesn’t advance and who does the opposite-of-advance (ie. me). He’s got a big pool of acceptable maps and game types, and then there’s even a ban phase so you can get rid of your least favorite maps before you match. All of these rules have been debated endlessly in the beta forums, of course, so when I lose I have plenty of leeway to blame it on krazycaley‘s rules, an important characteristic for any competitive format.

Here are the divisions for the first season:

Diamond Division

kcmmmmm
scientist
krazycaley
seizureman

Platinum Division

bloom

magician1099
sharper
slappydavis

Gold Division

cleetose

Silver Division

briguy
cameraman

Bronze Division

butterscotch
sgnurf

Copper Division

rjwut
teetery

It’s great to see some old-timers return for the league, and it’s also great to see new players in the mix too!

Of course, all of these division names of precious stones and metals started a debate since apparently platinum is worth more than diamonds, gold is worth more than platinum, and then somebody suggested updating the names of the the divisions based on daily market prices…
