Introducing Steem Leagues | Earn Steem By Participitating In Steem Based Cricket Leagues | Bidding Team Is Now Only 5 SBD

in #steemleagues4 years ago (edited)

I would like to announce a new game "Steem Leagues". It is cricket based on steem, there's lot to explain so let's jump right into it.

What Is Steem Leagues?

Steem Leagues is cricket based on steem. People can hire virtual cricketers and play matches against each other in different leagues. Each league will have 12 teams and they will have matches with each other through a bot, I made. Everything will be 100% fair. Each match has 10 players instead of 11 and each player can bat one time. Match is all done randomly by bot and no one has control over it. You'll be receiving information of match ball by ball in match's post.

Where To Start?

Steem Leagues, will start from 7 days from now till then you can bid for teams. In first Steem League there are gonna be 12 teams with 10 players in each team. Teams are limited that's why there is gonna be auction in this post. Starting price will be 5 SBD for team. Each user can only hire maximum of 2 teams and this teams will only be of you for 1 league. Top 12 bidders will get teams. If you want to hire two teams you can comment something like "10 SBD for 2 teams". You must also provide a name for your team in your bid. I'll be using it in future schedules.

When Will It Start?

After the payouts of this post. We will hopefully have 12 teams ready, so I'll post schedule which will have matches between teams. Each day we will have 2 matches. More details about schedule will be in upcoming posts in @steemleagues. Make sure to follow him.


Bot that handles that matches is made in Python. If you're python developer you might know that python has "random" module which has randint. To make it random everytime I have done something like:

random_number = [1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 0 , 6]
random_run = random_number[randint(0, 9)]

It will return random runs. Other than that you have 10% chance of getting out on each ball, 10% for hitting six, 20% chance of hitting 4, 3, 2 and 1.

Every run is added to total runs and bot is constantly checking if maximum balls are reached. If maximum balls are reached or all batsmen get out next team will start batting. If second team chases the runs then match will be finished, if overs get over and target is not chased or all batsmen get out without chasing the target then first team will win. After winning the match rewards will be distributed. 

How Will Be Rewards Distributed?

40% (20 Steem if all teams are sold) of all money gotten by team hiring will be sent to team who will win final. In each match there will be a winning reward which is 1 Steem. After every match "winning reward" will be sent to winning team. There is also gonna be runs reward which will also be going to winning team in every match. Each run will give you 0.005 Steem so if you scored 200 runs and won. You will get 1 Steem + 1 Steem as a match reward and promotion to next match because of the system you will still probably get back investment even if you don't win final. Additional rewards that are earned by match posts are also divided between two teams that had match.

How To Bid For Team?

Biddings will be in comments of this post. The starting bid is 20 SBD so you can start with that. If 12 people bid 20 SBD then all 12 people will get 1 team. They will be also asked to name the players or add existing cricket player to their team which will be absolutely free. If 1 person bids bids 25 SBD and 12 people bid 20 SBD then person with 25 SBD bid and 11 early bidders who bid 20 SBD will get team. This is first league so system can be a bit tricky but hopefully everything planned will be handled greatly.

How Will Be Matches Schedule?

Team 1 Vs Team 2 = Winner Of Match 1

                                             VS                       =  Winner Of Match 7

Team 3 Vs Team 4 = Winner Of Match 2

                                                                                           VS                        = Winner Of Match 11

Team 5 Vs Team 6 = Winner Of Match 3

                                             VS                       =  Winner Of Match 8                             VS   = Winner

Team 7 Vs Team 8 = Winner Of Match 4

                                                                                           VS                          = Winner Of Match 12

Team 1 Vs Team 2 = Winner Of Match 5

                                             VS                       =  Winner Of Match 9

Team 3 Vs Team 4 = Winner Of Match 6

One team will randomly selected after wining two matches.

Any Demo?

I have tested the bot in this post. So you can check out how mechanics work a little more and as you can see bot is working fine and is all random. Match was stopped with only first inning because @steemleagues doesn't have that much SP at the moment. Before league will start I will increase it. Other than that comments are upvoted, I will put it in post next time so that people will not upvote comments.

How Do I Know What Is Going Between Match?

As said above, you will be receiving updates in comments of each post of match. I will try to make a bot that can respond to comments in future.

Biddings Till Now

1. Sqamemal - 5 SBD - "Hodlers"

2. Okean123 - 5 SBD - Not Named Yet

Let's Start Proof Of Game!


You have received a @GrumpyCat flag because you or someone else sent money to buy votes from an irresponsible non-GrumpyCompliant service.

@sneaky-ninja, @pushup and @aksdwi are acting irresponsibly by selling votes to people on their post very close to final payout. (~99% abuse rate)

Sending money to these bots is also financially supporting for-profit spammers.

hola soy nuevo ando buscando seguidores, @carlos1214

Donot say i will treat you after dying😂😃😁😀😃

Can such an adult picture be sent?

Cricket on steemit , amazing concept. It is a bit complicated to understand, but hopefully cricket lovers would participate in it. Good luck.

Thanks for welcoming this new game in kind words. Yeah, there won't be any thing hard to understand if you're a cricket lover. I am gonna work on other sports too if this gets some success.

good writing~ voting complete

is this a fair game? how can we count on this?

I always find your posts refreshful and immaculately clean of the contrived eagerness of some Steemit advocates and honestly filled with genuine enthusiasm. I also appreciate the deeper, more open-minded and philosophical way you look at things and your passion for truth.

Sigueme y te sigo gracias!!

Sigueme y te sigo gracias!!

I actually agree with you on your comment but I will want us to be aware that close to 50percent steemians know little or nothing about cricket and due to this reason,I will like to direct my question to @anonian that what plans does he has in making every interested steemians know much about this cricket game?....Also, in a case where much of those interested in the game can't afford 20sbd,what happens, do you have any backup plan for that?

Okay; cool to hear that🎩

Okay... Nice response from [email protected]

this is it, thumbs up for this kid-celebrating.gif,,,

wow what a cool idea sounds a bit complicated but hope it works out!

good replay dear @rex1442

Good article. Great idea. Not much into cricket, but this setup could easily translate to other sports.

Interesting idea. Cannot wait to see it in action.

Will there be UI for this application?

O wow, it looks really interesting.
I would love to play this kind of game.
I just have one question. Were you inspired by PSL?

I don’t know much about cricket 🏏 but sounds fun...

yes you are right...thank you boss

awesome reply Dear @doccrypto


Generic comments could be mistaken for spam.

Tips to avoid being flagged

Thank You! ⚜

hi dear @spaminator
excellent reply

very interesting dear @taqi
how are you?

sounds goog i will check later

Cool stuff, I'll keep an eye on it to see how others will do and maybe i'll get in the action, good luck to the winner, cheers!

How about the chances of virtual match fixing? Sorry it comes to my mind when I hear or watch about cricket. Nice Initiation though.Not a big fan of cricket but I may try it in future. Good luck.

your post is very virtually Dear .@katteasis

Sounds like fun! I'll try to get involved soon! Followed!!

This a new idea which makes Steemit diverse!

Don’t do what the grumpy cat doesn’t like

Amazing idea. I love to see great inventions on steem blockchain. If this wave of developments and deployments on steem blockchain continues, it is a matter of time before steem explods.

awesome post dear /@richguy

good replay

intresting idea
iwant participate i wish win
Good luck

This is so expensive but nice initiative is taken.

Bid Price Lowered

First of all, I am a big geek of cricket from 15 years(lol my age is 20). I read the whole perspective but still, I feel something Incomplete about this whole Initiative. Second thing is that the scope of this league will be limited as there are only 12 teams with one buyer each team, so at a time only 12 peoples can interact. Bid price is high. What we can do is Increase the level of interaction and reduce the price so that anyone can be a part of this league. @anoniam

Bid Price Lowered

Beginning of a great new project on steemit. I jilust still to understand a little bit more before bidding.
What happens @ the end of each league? Do the teams get taken by you or can the team owner still auction to others?
Also, can a team owner auction at any time during the league?

Also, I don't know if we can talk more about this on either discord or telegram.

As said in the post, the league will start after 7 days of this post before the league auction will be ended and no more bidding will be accepted. At the end of each league teams are taken by me again for next league so If you want to get team again then you will have to bid again. Currently I am not on discord so If you want to ask any more questions, feel free to ask here in comments.

thank you dear /@anoniam
please come on my blog

Let me know if you want to bid.

this is good news im all for it

Very good idea...

hi @blackybabies
how are you
I am very devoted to you

Flagged for repeated abuse. More information HERE

Mmmm...steemed crickets

Interesting sharing. . Thnx

Hey, I have a few questions regarding this initiative:

  1. How many overs per game/match?
  2. Why not give an over-by-over update instead of ball-by-ball?
  3. What if 12 teams are not bought? Are funds returned back to bidders or do we wait until all 12 teams are eventually bought?
  4. Are there going to be implementations of extras like wides, no balls etc in the near future? I don't mind the current system but implementing such extras might add a touch of realism.

Thanks For Asking Questions

  1. There will be 20 overs per game.
  2. Ball By Ball updates looks more detailed and give better idea. What if someone needed 6 runs in last over? That would create suspense in ball by ball update.
  3. Funds will not be taken until 12 teams are bought.
  4. Yeah I will implement those features in future.

There will be 20 overs per game.

2062 = 240 comments in 12 minutes since you can only comment once every 3 seconds. You may want to at least take a breather every over. Do something like time.sleep(60) between overs and innings to preserve some bandwidth, these days the frequency of bandwidth issues have been increasing.

I would like to bid the minimum of 20 SBD for a team called 'Hodlers'!

Thanks For Mentioning It I have already thought of that and have followed exact "time.sleep(60)" after each over so there won't be a problem. Thanks for being the first bidder!

awesome article dear @sqamemal
please come on my blog

might give this a shot

Just Increased Payout For Final Winners From 40% To 45%!

Thank you for that great innovation as a programmer i understand everything your doing and trust me this gona work out. Think of adding more games like vitual football and so on such that steemians are able to select games of their choice perhaps those they understand well. This is a good thing

First of all thanks for being first commenter that relates to post. Secondly, that's a good idea I already thought about that but let's see if this gets some attention, if this will then I will implement this system in other games aswell.

So are the cricketeers not real life players and is there a draft for the virtual players or do you get a premade team?

No, cricketers are not in real life. Auction winners will have to tell the name of team and their players, it's their choice to whether choose name as real cricketers or imaginary. Name of team and players will be used in future posts.

This is kinda neat.. I'm amazed at the ever increasing new ways of using the Steemit platform.. wow.

Interested! I want to play this game

Brought to you by @tts. If you find it useful please consider upvote this reply.

I bid 20 SBD for one team.
Seems like a really cool idea. I can name it after I win (if I win) the bidding right? Also do we have something else to do? Or is the game completely automatic.

Thanks for bidding. You can name afterwards there's no problem for it. After 2 - 3 days you'll be asked for naming your team and players, till then you can wait.

awesome idea... sounds like fun :)

how great is the content, i will try this one.

Wow such a amazing computation I will join this

Bid Price Lowered

nice post dear upvote and follow me

Nice post.. Thanks for giving this.. I like your post very much.. Keep it up.. Stay blessed be happy.. Thank you..

Great info. Your writting is veey important and useful @anoniam

The idea seems to be rock and rolling. The idea has for sure got the strength to set up other steem based leagues. There hardly seems any mismatch regarding the schedule bidding selection etc. Looking forward at the league. Nice job i would say

To participate you need to bid for team in comments.

Yeah you have already made it so clear that you do not need to explain it again. Anyways thank you for your concern.

this sounds interesting but just one question, how do you ensure that the algorithm is absolutely unbiased and no team will get any upper hand? btw,, this looks fun and really excited about it.

If your Python Developer you might understand that the code I have provided in the post is completely random.

Steamleagues for cricket? It's great idea.

That's a very good idea! and also great use of your python skills. Personally I love cricket but unfortunately I've just joined steem community couple of days before so, I don't have enough sbd to invest. But I am definitely gonna follow your interesting league.

Also checkout my blogs here.

Being from India, Cricket is our favorite sport. How I would love to have been a team owner. Unfortunately I do not have the means to buy one :)

wow this is a nice innovation and a wonderful idea
