Killer should be kept just for fun. Not everything on this site needs to be competitive IMO.

2 whole weeks of squabbling in the first round springs to mind

I don't like your idea zante, I think 2 players to a team is too few and not every player on a team wants to play Killer should any qualify to your final

Could set up a Killer League with 3 persons to a team (minimum)but keep external from clans?

Use new creative team names etc

Not much different between 2 and 3 though, if players don't get 3 on then they're playing with 2 anyway. 2 means that every clan in the league can be involved, unless numbers dropped down to 5 clans you couldn't use 3 players and involve everyone. From your post, you want more places in killer but fewer people playing? I think most would probably say the bigger the competition, the better.

If players don't want to play, they don't have to. It just means that a minimum of 10 players and potentially the whole clan would get an opportunity to play. They may be able to play at a more convenient time than in the standard formats. If players qualify for the final and there isn't enough interest remaining from the clan then there are 2 fewer players but still a match just as competitive (and it negates uneven numbers within each team having a big impact on the outcome).

It was tried and it failed, then it was brought up in the last few seasons and the interest wasn't there. A killer league independent from clans would have lower interest and would lack longevity.

sounds nice, rather than say apples_back and imran playing then it has to rotate through your whole clan, if a clan member doesn't want to play, you could be down to one however with three strikes to qualify, you shouldn't be on one player really

The Killer Challenge Cup

The draw is here...

Uprising v Dragon Flame Eminence v Black Scorpions

and

Phoenix Revenge v Funky Pool Devils v Cues Brothers


Games to be completed by 24th April 2016.

Each match allows for a maximum of 5 players to take part from each of the three competing clans.

The winning team from each match goes straight into the final.

The 4 teams who are left will play off with 3 players per team in a one off game and the winning team will get the last place in the final. The other 3 will all be eliminated.

The final will be played with those 3 teams who qualify and each team will be allowed 5 players in the final.

I am leaving it up to the captains to agree a suitable date and time, if they can then advise me of this agreed date and time no later than the 13/04/16. If a suitable time cannot be found between the teams, the games will be played at default date and time chosen by me randomly which could be any date or time within the fixture period.

Phoenix Revenge, FPD's and Cues Brothers Captains have come to an agreement for our Killer match to be Sunday 17th April at 9pm.

Would that be okay?

We will be lucky too have five of us online at that time. I think (from a CB perspective)

That's the date and time we agreed on mate - mr_tumble accepted what me and buckjam requested - IF you don't have 5 or we don't we'll just have to manage with we do have.

Would the following Friday be better for you? 22/04/2016?

Can't see an issue personally with this (would message him why otherwise be a guaranteed No), i know i came hard on Keith earlier in the season but was just upset at the time about Dee not being allowed to move.

Recent rants though about Guidelines/Defaults i stand behind them

Yeah have asked him and he has gave me the go ahead too play in it as he know's who i am and why i had too deactivate other account.

Still hoping too make it on Sunday at the arranged time but honestly depends on my sister and what time she is leaving (if she is leaving on Sunday that is) as she is having my room for the weekend. Plus old firm game is on Sunday so i might be drunk

Can I suggest there be NO SPECTATORS be allowed tonight, as in the past players who through no fault of their own has been disconnected due to the server not being able to cope.

It could be down to the amount of players confined within one room.

it depends on the people in the room, i have no objections with players watching as i know the 6th person of our clan would want to watch, i think mikee wants to watch and i'm sure there are some Uprising guys also that would want to watch to offer support.

i think its partly java or connection issues but as Phoenix isn't in our Killer then i'm sure others wouldn't object to watching

Spectators should always be allowed we are trying to encourage clans to play / compete together as a group so others should be allowed to support if not playing.
