Dear all,
Due to severe technical difficulties arising from multiple sources, we were not able to give voters the full 24 hours of voting. Voters who voted in the first minutes of the match didn’t have the chance to exercise their right to secondary choice for the 7-character arena, except for the few who were following the news on some threads. Furthermore, there was an error in the 2-character exhibition arena and 7-character exhibition event scheduling, causing a character to appear twice in this round, which has potential to introduce unnecessary bias into voting. The Staff concluded that the only fair way to resolve all these issues is to re-vote on coming Sunday for the full 24 hours, with the 7-character exhibition event arena being changed to remove the case of a character appearing in multiple arenas. We apologize for the inconvenience and keeping you waiting for a few more days, but we hope you all understand that re-voting is probably the fairest thing to do. Please be patient as it may take up to 24 hours to make all the changes to ISML’s main pages.

Sehr geehrte Wähler,
aufgrund verschiedener technischer Schwierigkeiten waren wir nicht in der Lage unseren Wählern die kompletten 24 Stunden zum Abstimmen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Wähler, die bereits in den ersten Minuten abgestimmt hatten, waren nicht in der Lage in den Arenen mit sieben Charakteren für zwei Charaktere zu stimmen – mit Ausnahme einiger, die diese Informationen in diversen Threads erfahren haben. Außerdem erschien ein Charakter in zwei verschiedenen Exhibitions-Arenen (einer Arena für zwei Charaktere und in einer für sieben), was das Ergebnis unnötig verzerren könnte. Der Stab hat sich daher entschieden, dass eine Neuwahl am kommenden Sonntag für 24 Stunden die einzige faire Lösung ist. Dabei wird eine Exhibitions-Arena mit sieben Charakteren ausgetauscht, damit kein Charakter in mehreren Arenen erscheint. Wir entschuldigen uns für die Unannehmlichkeiten und die Verzögerungen um einige Tage, hoffen aber dabei, dass Ihr versteht, dass eine Neuwahl die wahrscheinlich fairste Lösung ist. Habt bitte Geduld, da es bis zu 24 Stunden dauern kann, bis alle Änderungen auf den ISML Seiten erfolgt sind.

이번 아쿠아마린 목걸이 대전 투표기간 중 여러 문제가 발생하여서 규정대로 투표장을 24시간동안 열어두지 못했습니다. 이 목걸이 대전중에 있는 7인전에서는 원래 투표자들이 최고 2명까지 선택할 수 있어야 하는데, 기술적 문제로 투표 시작한지 1시간 이내에 투표하신 분들은 7인전에서 한 명만 고를 수 있었습니다. 이러신 분들 중 대부분은 재투표에 대한 소식을 전달받지 못하여서 자신의 선택권중 일부를 활용하지 못하였습니다. 그리고, 시범 경기 배치에 실수가 있어서 한 인물이 두개 다른 시범경기에 나오게 되었습니다. 이런 많은 문제들에 대한 가장 합리적인 해결책은 재투표라 판단하여서 한국시간으로 월요일에 문제의 시범경기 조를 바꾼 후 재투표를 하려고 합니다. 이 일로 많은 심려와 불편을 끼친 것에 사과드립니다. 그리고 투표에 관한 website들을 수정하는데 최고 24시간이 걸릴 수 있으니 침착하게 기다려 주시면 감사하겠습니다. 궁금하신 것이 있으면 이 글의 답변을 통하며 알려 주시기 바랍니다.

由于出现了多方面的严重技术困难,我们无法给投票者提供足够24小时的完整投票时间。在最初约半小时的投票并未在七选二的比赛场次开放第二投票选择,导致部分未有紧贴网络公布的投票者丧失投出两票的权利。除此之外,因为赛程安排出错,导致其中一位角色在两个比赛场次同时出现,有机会对投票造成不公。运营经讨论后决定解决问题的唯一公平方法,是在接下来的星期天进行完整24小时的重新投票,并且把其中一场七名角色对战的场次替换掉以排除同一角色于多个场次同时出现的情况。我们为这次事故所带来的不便,以及要让各位多等几天致歉,希望各位理解重新投票是最公平的处理方法。这次网站的善后处理将需要最多24小时,感谢各位耐心等候。

Aquamarine underway

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

The Regular Season has kicked off! We thank our voters for waiting through the period following the Preliminaries while we prepared for the start of Aquamarine. A complete set of results for Round 1 is now available in the Statistics Portal; extra time was needed to process the new Male Division as well as the formatting of new stat values.

This year introduces PSAO and SS. We’re also announcing an amendment to our charter, as we had left off PSAO from the original draft. PSAO is about the same as last year’s SAO, but we multiply that value by the percentage of maximum points possible. The weighted SAO should be a better ranking metric. SS is the seeding score that we are using as experimentation to compare against the PSAO metric.

We apologize for the lengthy downtime during Round 1’s core voting hours. We extended voting for 5.5 hours past the normal end date to make up for the lost time. Staff will be more vigilant in checking the health of the server to make sure voting is available when it should be.

Thanks for voting!
