No idea what killer has to do with straight.
As far as I'm aware, killer was not introduced to balance anything out, it was introduced because it is fun!!
I do think that 2 killer fixtures to be played by 6 different players from each team is a bit much, HOWEVER you're all criticizing after less than a week of one fixture! Way to give it a chance...

So why the big issue?

Killer was voted on, was trialled, and then introduced. If it is part of the competition, teams will have to be play it or leave.

(Although I would still change it to either 1 killer game per fixture or allow players to play in both killer games, so that it can be done in one session).

don't mind killer in general really, far as im aware killer was made to 2 fixtures to counter straight (thats my problem really) and originally introduced because its a fun team event (which it is).

im willing to give it a chance and see how things go but my main concern was defaults may rise because you need 6 people for killer which can be harder than it looks.

If it turns out to be a mess, the results of the killer games could still be removed from the league later in the season without hurting anyone or anything.
thats fair enough then

i honestly hope 2 killer games will work in the league, first fixture im unsure due to the euros but should be fine after that hopefully

Who actually voted for 2 x killer as from what i can see sam, matty and jay don't agree with it and that is three of the league runners?


I agreed with it as my option for the one straight one killer got ignored lol.


So cause they didn't vote for 1 and 1, you voted for 2 and 2, sorry there is no logic in that.

From what i can see there is not much who support 2 games of killer per fixture set. Why not bite the bullet now and say 1 per set and see how it goes.

Maybe I wasnt clear lol. That's not the only reason I voted for it and before we make any decisions it needs to be talked about between the runners.

Question i need to ask people is, if we decide to change it are you wanting the change implemented straight away?

Obviously now it is not to difficult to change it during this set as a small amount of teams have only play the one killer game in one/both fixtures. Plus it is only the start of the season really.

I would be adamant that this isn't going to happen.

We've agreed it's going to be played, now we go back on our word to those that wanted it because we've come under pressure by a few members? That would be stupid. I may have been against it, but we need to be the type of runners that stick by our word.

To take it out now would be unacceptable in my eyes.

I would trial it during the season and see how it goes, if it doesn't work out then can remove killer scores and go down to 1 killer next season, if it does then props keep it at 2 for next season.

it was just the logic behind the implementation is what confused me a bit nothing more.

I just think you should be able to use the same members for both killers if needed but i can understand the reason behind it.

I gave my word on nothing though, i only went with the idea of two games in a fixture and 3x3 because i was already out voted on the matter, Matty has knew my thoughts on this from day one.

Killer would still be in the league but only shortened, i dont see why anyone would have a major problem if it did get tweaked during the season or the first set.

As no one has played 2 games it would be easy to implement, why not ask for a vote from all the clan captains and give the teams what they prefer as they are the ones who have to play it.

I vote for none.

But if we must have it i would vote for 1 per fixture.

I agree with Sam but then I also understand why jay and Keith are saying IF there is going to be any tweaking it would be best to do it now as we are only in first fixture set rather than halfway through the season. But by the looks of it sams vote would be to keep it at two as to not go back in what we did.
completely agree with Sam

and those times were thursday 8pm and tues 8pm

thursday is tomoz so it will get played as we will have 3 players online and MVP normally have 3 players online then

unless ur just going to not play it so ya can make it 1 killer game a set

Also if ya change the format now this league will be kind of a joke, you league runners made the decision on 2 killer game per fixture set, so now you gotta deal with the consequences

Well although you was against it Jay we used the majority rule and it's still we as us as league runners decided it. Although not you directly but as a team we did.

As a group of 5 league runners you all came to the agreement or the votes came to having 2 killer games per set right?

Now that was voting in ya gotta keep it or people will moan about other things and you will change them aswell
