Hustle Kings Snooker Championship 2

Time to launch this baby then!
 
Hustle Kings Snooker Championship - Season 2
  

 

Rules:

 

  • No special chalk permitted 
  • Timer limit must be set at the maximum of 60 seconds
  • Short Aim lines (I'm sticking with short as I think it gives our less skilled players a chance still against the top players, plus no one got 147 last season so ya no one mastered it yet.)
  • 1 frame per match
  • You are required to play each player twice in the season.
  • Hustling of credits is allowed, but NOT compulsory 
  • Winner of the match is required to upload a replay to Youtube of either the full match of the last few shots that show who the winner is to prove final scores.
  • All matches must be complete by 1/1/12 otherwise all your matches are regarded as a loss.
What do I win?

 

PSN Voucher courtesy of Voofoo Studios will be rewarded to one lucky random winner who has completed all their league fixtures.

 

This event is just for fun, however we will give out virtual trophy badges with your name on made by Narrator, which will be a nice way to show off amongst the rest of the community of your glory.

 

They will be awarded in the following categories:

 

  1. Winner of the Snooker Championship
  2. Runner up of the Snooker Championship
  3. Highest Break
  4. Best Pot
  5. Best Fluke shot
  6. Best Match Analysis

Anything else worthy of an award as part of this league then please say so.  Suggestions are welcome :)

 

 Last years winners:

 

RedPuddsBrownPacmanBlueShimmusGreenPacmanSilverPuddsGoldfunky

 

 

When?
 
  • The league starts 29/09/11  and finishes 1/1/12
  • We will be hosting a Snooker Championship room every Thursday between 8-9pm BST, which we can all meet up in the room and find an available player to challenge in the league.
  • Alternatively if you are unable to make the Snooker Championship meet up day, you are more than welcome to arrange another day and time to play your matches.
  • You can play whoever you want, when you want, just make sure you only play each player twice and you finish all your matches before the league ends.
 
Where?
 
  • A room called "OPC Snooker" will be created specifically for us league players to find and challenge one another.
  • You can make your own room of course if you are unable to join the rest of us.  (See details about creating your own room further down).
 
Time?
 

The Snooker Championship will be created from 8PM BST till 9PM BST (or when the last player leaves) every Thursday night.

 

Once again, if you are unable to make this time, you are welcome to arrange another time and day with your chosen opponent.

 

How?


ALL players within the league will be invited into the Snooker Championship room every Thursday at 8PM BST.

 

If you are able to join at that time, then please do! Just accept the invite and you will be taken to the private room. 

 

When you are in the Snooker Championship room, you will get to see all the other players in there too.  From this screen you can chat amongst the other players in the league and find someone to play against.

 

Once you have agreed who to play, scroll down to their name on the Hustle Kings room and select "Challenge Player".  

 

If you have arranged a match at a time and day more suitable for you or your opponent, which isn't on the same time as the Snooker Championship day then make sure you create the room settings as follows:

 

The settings that are NOT essential are highlighted in blue.

 

Room Name: OPC Snooker

Room Type: Hustle

Anonymous: No

Event Type: Head to Head

Private: Yes

Max Players: 32 

Allow Special Chalk: No

 

 

Game Type: Snooker

Frames: 3

Aiming Line: Short

Shot Time: 60 seconds

 

 

Arena: Snooker

Cloth: Green

 

 

Minimum Stake: No Limit

Maximum Stake: No Limit

 



 

If you created your own private room and wish to invite your opponent, you can select "menu" and "invite player".  This will allow you to invite any PSN ID by typing it out, or you can invite them using your friends list or invite players via the PSN Chat.

 

The league table on this thread will be updated in the OP at the end of each week with all the latest stats.  Please use this thread to post your scores and videos, and league discussions.  

 

Wish you all the best of luck on your snooker journey.  So put your waist coats and bow ties on and get ready for some much needed snooker action.

Let's just continue doing what we did last year, it seems to of worked so see no reason to break it.

 

I didn't have time to make Fixture\results table yet so will try to that today when I get a spare few minutes.

Guys I'm having a brain freeze and need your suggestions.

 

I was working on the result\fixture table, meaning for it to be like last years, when I came across a problem.  I realised the results you are giving me are for frames not for matches.  I forgot we are doing best out of 3 frames for a match now.

 

Just not sure how best to record this, whilst keeping table to fit the forum page (as per QW's request).  Any ideas?

 

Edit:

 

Ok I got it.  I can just use tabs to signify the different frames or simply state the results here and I will just put red or green to signify wins or losses.

Kinda works, but I'd just have the first page show the match score (i.e. 2-0, 2-1) and list the match frame scores as a list in the next tab. Slap the league table on the main tab and stick on post number one and we're set.

 

I like the way you've done the colours - makes it nice and clear who won.

That'll do for now.  I gotta go home and get ready for the pub night will work on it tomorrow morning to smarten it up.

 

In the mean time any more suggestions you wanna throw in about it then go ahead.  Once it's sorted I will put on OP.

Looks good to me - just sort out the column widths on the League Table, get those results in and slap it on the OP. :)

Decided to wear my winners badge with pride for the remainder of the tournament. Nothing to do with the fact I don't think I'll have it much longer. Honest. :Shame:

Let's get this show on the road again tonight and get some more matches underway.

 

Will invite everyone in the league to a room at 8pm.  Although I be at home so wont have keyboard so don't be annoyed if I don't say hi straight away, it be because I be inviting peeps into room etc.

I have won 2 frames and I have scored less points than someone that lost 2 frames.

 

I don't think I will be that high up for long.

Just noticed a few things.

 

Homer is the only one not to lose a single frame! Wonder how long that will last.

 

And another thing, literature wherefore art thou literature? Quite few people need to pull their fingers out :p
