Would it be possible for A and B teams to be altered before the playoffs to enable DFE to play their best team/s for instance. I think most of us have our strongest in team A already but if changes are needed then surely nows the time.? It wouldn't hurt for teams to submit their best and reliable players especially as there is only a week of the fixture


No teams will remain as they are currently, if any team thinks they have not got 4 active players to complete the fixtures if they advise me and show this i would consider allowing them to move a player but only if this were the case. If they have players who are active but make little or no effort to play that is the clans problem and down to them to resolve as if games go to default they would be punished accordingly.

That's fair enough, as people could use that tactically.
The problem with the activity in our team A didn't become evident until the second sets after we lost a few players, so yes, it's a clans own fault, but always going to be the gamble if you want to enter one stronger team.

I actually think this is a good thing. I understand to a degree about the whole "what was the point in aiming for the playoffs" POV but really, this is a lot more fun, and any of the teams have a decent shot!
It's going to be a struggle, as we assumed after Sunday team A would have no games left, but with another addition, and/or removing players who are absent temporarily so somebody can move, we should be OK so I'm kinda excited to see what happens here.

Once again I haven't said I dislike the idea I don't agree with it being introduced so late in the season and feel it's harsh on those sides who have been under the impression/illusion the Playoffs are something to be achieved not just rewarded for being a team.

My dislike or disapproval to the change has nothing to do with if being against the better teams. I for one have a great group of players but never claim to be the better team and appreciate others are just as strong. The table (top) has at least 1 side from approximately 5 different teams as it stands so the original Playoffs process would have catered for most teams.

Why didn't this process happen last season??? Uprising took up 75% of the Playoffs positions but not a single eyelid battered but this season where 5 different teams could potentially be represented you want to incorporate & accommodate all.

Sorry of course I'm going to question it we missed out on the Playoffs.

Of course I'm going to take it personally!

I honestly don't see the problem, if it had happened last season it wouldnt have bothered me.. FPD finished 4th... so we didnt win the league anyway and in the knockout you have to beat the best to win it.

Its a good addition and good for clan players who dont feature in the cups or killer at the end of the season.

There is no need to argue or suggest bias or personal attacks in any way over this. Keith is the league runner and he has final say, just support the idea (which is better than old one) and get on with it.

We're more than happy to pull out if you're that desperate. As much as I enjoy your mental breakdowns, this comp means very little to me. Although I'd probably be tempted to loan some players to fpd and dfe!

I don't see what the issue is? I just see it as a few more games too be played which will stop people getting bored waiting on FCL and FBL too start up again. You play too win anyway so even with this slight change i would think all clans would have played the exact same way anyway.

Super League X

There are a few games outstanding but none that will affect the top of the league, they will only effect final placings for seedings.

Current table is as follows:-

Congratulations to Uprising Originals on winning the league on frame difference from Phoenix Revenge A. Possibly one of the closest leagues ever as one more frame for _fresh_ against tombo1 earlier and Phoenix would have won.

Well done to all

Can any unplayed games send default information by tomorrow night so i can do SL playoffs.

Thanks

Funny that now that Ash didnt qualify one of his teams in the top 4, he doesnt moan much about the format.
