    PRTA Presents: Task Force Signups for Contact! Season 3

    [​IMG]

    After the meeting, we had a lot of good ideas and a much better idea of the best way to do this tournament. But there are still ideas to be made, concepts to finalize, and rules to write. We need the help of the PR Community, experienced players, leaders, and commanders that are excited to play in a tournament to help decide its direction.

    How will the tournament work?

    Thanks to the meeting, the general tournament will work roughly as follows
    • 48v48 battles and up to 50v50 if reserves allow it.
    • 16-man infantry platoons, with 8 reserves.
    • 8-man asset squads (covering armor & aircraft), with 4 reserves.
    • A small pool of field commanders.
    • No limits on the number of participating platoons, asset squads & commanders.
    • Skill-based team balancing (where data permits) in each battle for more competitive fights.
    • "Trueskill" estimation of platoon skill for a post-tournament scoreboard.
    • Normal Project Reality Maps, no custom maps.
    • The objective is to get as high as possible on the final scoreboard.
    There are obviously a few more kinks to sort out, such as command teams, asset squads, and battle-cycles.

    We really need your help to get all this sorted to please use the below link if you think you can contribute:


    Signup link for the task force:

    Estimated time-table:
    Signups should open in Mid-December.
    The plan is to have the first battle at the beginning of January.

    Tournament Concept:

    There is a ranking algorithm called TrueSkill which statistically estimates relative player rankings. This uses the team-level win/loss/draw result to update the relative skill estimates for participants in each match. Over a large number of matches, the estimated scores approximate the real relative skill levels of each participant.

    We intend to apply a variant of this model to platoon-sized cohorts of players and use the skill estimates for both in-tournament teams balancing and for a public scoreboard at the end.
