Update on Mixed Officials

October 27, 2017

Just to clarify regarding mixed officials:

  1. In a mixed official, once the match begins, players cannot change colors unless EVERYONE agrees to balance teams. Teams should be decided beforehand to avoid issues.

  2. To avoid misunderstandings & conflicts from those too 'hot to trot' for mixed officials, communication must be CLEAR that it's a mixed official. Players be sure to check the chat and countdown timer message. It will state whether it's fm or official. Stands to reason if it's a mixed official and you don't want that, go obs!

Leagues United event

October 19, 2017

All Inclusive Event......rather than All Stars!

What: Best 2 out of 3 - 30minute matches. One on Ducati, one on hix. If 3rd is needed, captain & co-captain from team with most caps chooses which LU map for the tie breaker. Here is the signup link to schedule which day works out for the most players. https://doodle.com/poll/ru8fzxmguxm6r2ks

All players are encouraged to signup. The goal is for everyone to play! Looks like the popular day is Nov 5th.

Poll closes soon. Captains have been chosen! Msg me here or on forums if you can't log onto poll link.

This is not a Riker's/Chesval wannabe. Teams will be irrespective of geographic location.

Welcome to the Fall Season

September 30, 2017


I'm really excited to announce the updated Leagues United website that has some new features! It's been just over a year since our last update but here we are. I'll go over some of the biggest new things but to view a more detailed release, read the release notes.

Player Elos

Conceived by llrr, with feedback by the community, the biggest feature in this release is the support for new match types and Elo ratings tied directly to players. With this, there is the introduction of new official match types:

  • Team vs Team (TvT)
  • Team vs Mixed (MvT)
  • Mixed vs Mixed (MvM)

That's right! Official matches no longer need two teams to happen. Official matches can now occur with 4 different players from 4 different teams. What's in it for you if you win? Bragging rights and an Elo boost. For each official match you participate in, you risk lowering your Elo but you also could get an increase. If you don't want to gamble, that's fine too! Fun matches aren't going away and haven't changed.

What does this mean? You can now run the /offi command on league servers with incomplete teams or teamless players on each team! Player Elos will be kept on a seasonal basis. What are the seasons?

  • Winter: January - March
  • Spring: April - June
  • Summer: July - September
  • Fall: October - December

We'll be adding some new pages showing the top players of each season and some more information regarding competitions; this'll happen before the start of the Winter 2018 season.

This has been one of the largest features introduced and probably one of the most difficult to create/test, so please bear with me as we get kinks/technicalities/calculations worked out!

New UI

Don't worry, I heard you about wanting a dark theme for the website. Sorry that it took so long, but the dark theme you've all been asking for is here and it's the default! Liked the light theme? Don't worry, go to your preferences and change it.

I'll be introducing more color themes, especially for those players with a form of colorblindness. If you'd like to create your own theme, documentation for how to do so will be coming soon!

Player and team profile pages have been completely redesigned and have some neat graphs and statistics so be sure to check those out!


Web accessibility has been drastically updated and has become a top priority for website navigation. What does this mean? Website elements have been updated to use semantically correct tags and keyboard navigation has been improved. You can now browse the entire website with just your keyboard. Additionally, screen readers should have an easier time with navigating the website.

Accessibility support isn't where I'd like it to be, but it will continue to receive more updates in the coming releases.


This release could not have happened without the help of the following players. Thank you for your artwork, suggestions, thorough help with testing. I would not have been able to get to this release without your help.
