What's the thoughts on splitting into 2 divisions after this season?
FCL will finish in about 3 weeks and FBL will still have 2 months to run.
We would get promotion and relegation into it as well then and with new clans joining seems the obvious thing to do.

on snooker i always said if we got 8 clans or more i would do 2 divisions, seems like good idea, at the same time though its one of the things what separate FCL from FBL as well as format

I'm all for splitting it. If you have let's say 8 clans, you make 2 divisions of 4 and everyone plays each other twice (6 fixtures per team for the season). That's 12 weeks. Not bad.

We will be Going to a Two Tier Set up for next season with promotion and relegation most likely 2 up 2 down or a play off between second bottom Div 1 vs 2nd top Div 2.

I am considering to have this season finish with each clan playing eachother once only so we can implement the new set up and get a more competitive league system up and running..Need feedback on this asap so we know if it is agreed..(at current system league wont finish till late november).

I'm all for it, even though itis a seperate league from FCL things would work so much better with both leagues starting and finishing at the same time.
One division carries on far too long if we ended this one when we've played one game each we can get a 2 division set up ready to tie in with the start of next season FCL
For the new teams looking to join they have much more chance if they don't have to wait 2 months as well

Lee whats your thoughts on the promotion/relegation for new set up. A straight 2 up 2 down or a play off?

I think it should be same as FCL
-new clans start in division 2
-straight 2 up 2 down if there are no folding clans and no new clans
-even out the leagues within reason so we've got the same numbers in both

FBL last fixture set will be released on the 7th of this month and the deadline will be the 18th. It will overlap on current fixtures for some clans but we can then crown the champion for this season and move on to a new league structure that will be more competitive and rewarding than current set up. I thank all member clans for participating in this season and hope to see you all back for next season.

So if the deadline for last fixture is 18th, FBL will be starting roughly same time with FCL?

Dextr has asked me to post here to give my opinion on the FBL discussion going ahead.

Erm well i not really into FBL but it is fun but yes i think that it should be split into two divisions for next season, straight 2 up 2 down as like the FCL.

well i like jays idea but how will you reckon who will be going where?

Would you have 7 in each group? and new people add on in to div 2 ? but we could have a cup? like 1 of each type?


for example :

dvz vs flawless

8 us 1 - 0

9 us 0 - 1

8 uk 1 - 0

straight 1 - 0

overall 3 - 1

and you could have 6 aside so you have 9 subs if needed?

Work out the divisions that is easy split up teams in it just now top half table div 1 bottom div 2

say 2 teams join take 2 from div 2 and moved up to div 1

James why didnt you say that then, instead you write a load of cods wallop a cup? i dont think FBL would suite having a cup to be honest. Would make it too much like FCL. They supposed to be diffrent

A cup format is plausable but that will be worked out during the closed season. Atm we have 9 clans in fbl and if as expected i think there could be a total of 12 if all pass the pre season friendlies. So it would be two leagues of 6 just have to wait and see who puts name forward.

If all pass then you could work them out in to there divisions by the score they won by in there fixture(s) to qualify to play in FBL.

Example:

Wolf Pack (20) vs (18) UB's
Wolf Pack (22) vs (16) Mouseketeers

Wolf pack win both they would qualify for division one.

Only a thought

If a new clan passes and enters the league they will be a Div 2 clan regardless. I have never liked the idea that because a clan has better players should get preferential treatment and allowed into division 1.

Yes but on any given day a clan will mediocre players can still win over a clan with good players hence why luck was invented dextr was a suggestion none the less
