What basic settings will these games have? (map size, starting planets, tech costs, etc.)

My suggestion: Keep a list of the complete history of Kings, saying who was king and for how long.

Maybe even create a current king "crown" icon that Kings can put in their sigs and avatars to show off, like a trophy.

Here ye, here ye!

Format has been revised. In keeping more with the King of the Hill theme, I have scrapped the brackets alltogether and we are left with just a hill. And the hill has levels. Levels Jerry! But no carpet.

I like this cause you don't end up sitting around waiting for the other game in your bracket to finish before you can move on.

Already got 7 players, there is room for as many as want to join the league though. So come on.

I also added a forum in the PBW forums just for the K.O.T.H. League.

To expand on my previous suggestion, I think you should have a page which lists of all previous kings and the current king. Then have a set of downloadable crown images that a person can wear by putting them into his/ her sig, avatar or webpage. Anyone found wearing royal attire without having earned it will be abused, ridiculed and generally ostracised.

Crown 1: "I once was king". Silver Crown. Can be worn by anyone who appears on the list of previous kings.
Crown 2: "King of the hill". Gold Crown. Can be worn only by the current king.
Crown 3: "King of Kings". Little picture of Elvis. Can be worn only the person who currently holds the record for most consecutive games on the throne. Someone who is the curretn king and the king of kings gets an icon of Elvis wearing a gold crown...

You could even go wild and award lesser royal titles to people who have never been king...

EDIT: I moved Elvis...

Tesco if you joined I missed it. This is not the tourney Ragnorak is setting up. This is a continual league, not really a tournament. If you want in send me an email and let me know.

Maybe there are different kings.

Cruiserweight - 2000pts
Heavyweight - 3000pts
Super-Heavyweight - 5000pts

Who knows? Maybe some divisions will have different kings, and some players perform worse or better with different types of empires.

The number of racial points used shouldn't cause you to play worse than you normally would.
