This thread will be used to determine the interest of doing a Duos division in the IPL. I'll be updating this post with confirmation of people who are in for it. Once we have 8 people, we'll start to go forward with it. Here's the quick rundown of the basic idea.

Confirmed Interest:
Me
Steven
Ruppy
Kira

-Players will join up in teams of 2 and compete in Multi battles. Player will pick their own teams.

-Players will have a Duo battle once every 2 weeks. This should give the 4 players enough time to coordinate a time to get a battle in.

-Duo championship matches will take place at the end of every 2 months.

-All other rules and procedures will follow along with the general IPL rules and procedures.

If there's anything I'm missing or that needs to be looked at, post it and we'll discuss it.

If I missed anyone or included someone I shouldn't have, let me know. Like I said, once we get 8, we'll move forward with this.

Re: ION Pokémon League Duos Division

I have an idea to change up the rules a bit for the teams.
Instead of everyone pairing up in teams of 2 and staying that way, what if we
have it setup so the teams are instead chosen at random and that no one is matched up
with the same trainer as a team member for until after the Championship matches.

This way we will have a lot more different battling going on with trainers getting to know each other and
their battle strength and weaknesses. I think this will definitely keep things interesting.
Thoughts everyone?

Re: ION Pokémon League Duos Division

I don't know if I ever fleshed out the team mechanic or not, but if not, I'll do it here. This was my original thought.

Players would choose their own teams. These teams would remain together until the players decided to break them up. Teams would accumulate points in the exact manner as the league works now with one team standing atop the division as Champions. Pretty straight forward and simple.

I'll give my thoughts here on what Mike has suggested. I'm not a fan of the random teaming dynamic. I do like the idea that it might allow players to get to know one another better, but that can be accomplished through discussion here rather than forced teaming. I think that the division should be set up to reward those who function well as a team. With the random pairing idea, I think the general idea would be that the two trainers who have accumulated the most wins or points in Duos matches would be paired together to take on the Champions. It just feels clunky to me and not in line with the concept of teams.

That's just my opinion on it. If an overwhelming majority of people would rather do some sort of random teaming concept, then we can explore that route.

As an aside, I'm not totally against the random pairing idea for a special event. It probably deserves it's own thread, but I've been thinking of possibly doing some sort of themed events every once in a while in the league to switch things up a little. This could be one where players are randomly paired for teams and the winners move on to some sort of set up and then winner would get some bonus points or a guaranteed title match to be cashed in whenever they want or something like that. I know that was very vague but it needs serious thought and tinkering to figure out how to make it work.

Re: ION Pokémon League Duos Division

I personally would prefer us to have the ability to pick our own teammates rather than it be random, but that's just me.

Now that we have 15 people in the league, I'm reviving this idea. Would people be interested in a duo component to the IPL? I'm scrapping the old votes since they were from 2 years ago. If you're interested and posted before, please post again.
