QB/QC Meeting 9/28/2014
Present for discussion: Cody, Missa, Cosmo, Rosemarie, Tarma, Jenny, Marcie, Arielle, Amy Charz, Scarlet
Summary - all points that are relevant to refs / players from this years meeting are included below
Discussion of Quaffle Points difference in games tried last year. Decision made to change it because Snitch needs to be recognized, quaffle play needs to be longer and other points. Different possibilities discussed and this is what we'll try this year:
Quidditch is played traditionally. The Snitch is released, Quaffle play starts and continues until the Snitch is caught or time runes out. There is no maximum different of Quaffle points to affect when Quaffle play ends.
House points (points submitted for the game by QB) are based on this:
Both teams get 100 House points participation
Whoever catches snitch gets 50 House points
Whoever wins the game (considering both snitch and quaffle) gets 250 House points
Tie-game * 100 House points to each team
Forfeit of one team/failure to show: 0 points to forfeiting team; 150 points to team that showed (100 for showing up, 50 for snitch)
If the top 2 teams end up in a tie at the end of the school year (equal records and beat each other once), a tie-breaker game will be played to determine the winner of the Quidditch Cup.
Note: How is the winner of the Quidditch Cup determined? The team who has won the most games at the end of the year wins the Quidditch Cup. If two teams have an identical win-loss record, they will play a tie-breaker game that will determine the winner of the Quidditch Cup. Be aware that game points scored by and against a team will no longer determine a team's ranking, though this may not be reflected in the Quidditch Department.
Can a person ref on a Mac: Cosmo says, "It's complicated, but I think the answer is yes, with some workarounds. I'm pretty sure I got mIRC working on my sister's Mac a year ago or so, but I don't remember if I tried either refbot (I probably didn't, to be honest). However, if people are interested, I could borrow the Mac, give it another try, and then write up a tutorial of sorts."
