Experimental Schemes League
From Worms Knowledge Base
|Experimental Schemes League|
Experimental Schemes League or ESL is a league specifically focused on playing completely new or undeservedly forgotten, less popular schemes that are not included in the lists of other leagues, so ESL can be considered a testing ground for such non-standard schemes, promoting the ones the gaming community discovers something new and interesting.
The league was founded by SIBASA with the support of FoxHound on the basis of the WoSC community, which provided a separate board forum on the TUS website, where it was planned to implement all activities, but later Zemke created a website for the league where you can watch the standings and the ability to upload game replays, and the main ESL Discord-channel has become a place for communication between players
Seasons & Schemes
Before each season, all interested players offer a list of schemes that they would like to see played in the upcoming season. This way a new list is formed for the first round of voting. After this, another list is formed containing the schemes in which they atributed the most votes, so that when the second round starts, it will finally decide the scheme that will be selected and played throughout the whole season.
