I am not sure about the game types or maps and live vs long term. I have never played a live game...don't have time for them.

I like the finished 5 games, should there be a requirement to have won 1 of them? The reason I made my initial suggestion is that if you had to play 5 games each of the preceding 3 months, (so Sep, Oct, Nov), it would prevent someone who has a higher ranking of making it for just coming back in say Nov.

I also still maintain that what is the point of the dominating 12? Is it who has the highest rating or who improved their rating the most? These to me are the truly dominating people.

Putting aside the argument as to whether this really represents the best players of the last month, is everyone happy with the frequency? Does it feel like it comes around too often?

To me, I like the idea which you pitched earlier, regarding consistency; setup games every month.
This would get game-data-input for the D12 game of Feb from Jan and the March D12 game from Feb, etc. ~provided the games finish timely.
I'm however also perfectly fine with making it 2 months? Or any other constant interval (or even something less bounded ;d). That said; once/month doesn't strike me as too often.

But I think that needs to be tougher such as finishing 5 games in 15 days. Or tougher still: How about a minimum of 2 different game types, a minimum amount of maps and how about at least one live and one long LT game?
~Not sure whether that actually leads to 'better/more dominating' players to be selected - it'll make it tougher though; as people need to play more games (and especially for non-premium players, this could be a bottleneck). Not sure whether activity should be a main driver as selection criterium. Changing from playing 5 in 15, to finishing 10 in 30 already feels more 'soft' of a change. As for how well it represents what you guys intend it to represent... I guess that's rather hard. If you wish to change it, there'll be some kind of comparing apples with pears... (maps/LT/types - there's 1v1, caps, assass etc tournaments) - anyway, I notice my writing becomes less and less comprehensible, more of a clutter :d

I like the spark TP_knighty initiated and the response Matty gave; creating another list based on a different formula: https://dominating12.com/forums/6/suggestions-feedback/3107/best-monthly-performer/post/54642#post-54642 - provided there is (enough) desire from the community/staff to alter stuff (and time/willingness to code it).

For now, I mostly just replied to acknowledge that I read it :p I'll probably be ok with whatever gets decided upon (or voice myself more elaborately before the fat lady sings)

Format for Dominator tournament. (tried and tested in world inverted challenge and other map master tournaments)

8 points (8 opponents beaten) for 9 player games in all of our following formats.
Deathmatch
Capitals (fog)?
Domination
Assassination
and 1 point for a 1v1 game against each opponent. (suitable size map)
in total it is 12 games. this could give the d12 name a bit of sense.
the 1v1 games are really bonus points that can break a tie breaker. you will need to have won a 9 player game to win. win 2, then your dominating!
Most points win.
all games played at the same time (not sametime - calm down).
I think it can better determine an overall skill set (aside from sametime / team formats ) and it promotes activity within these top players from challenge to challenge.
The web moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Sounds like a lot of fun. Would be neat to have all the big games on the same map and the little games all on another map. Then change the maps each time. I would have to get me some 1v1 skiils though.

Yup that is the plan. same big map and same little map.
Baltic Sea was due for it's rotation. Balkan Peninsula for the small map - avoiding maps with 2 or 3 territory bonus regions for a likely unfair drop. Balk. Pen seems to have worked well for pairs and 1v1 games.

If you die when there's no one watching then your ratings drop and your forgotten,
But if they kill you on their T.V. you're a martyr and a lamb of god.
