In Pros, were going to use fewer robots as possible which would include Harriet, Been and Dvz, Payback not a robot but not requested to be in SL

Are the teams going to be interchangeable throughout or just up too the play offs Keith?

Just up to the play offs as always. In play offs after you play for one team you are stuck to them. The subs would be available to any team in play off until they sub in and play then they would be tied as well.

Nah, it's a shambles

Totally disagree with the way it's being done.
faust has the original and best way for his teams.
No point in having more than one team if anyone can play in any team, to then change the rules and be a member of a specific team. No logic at all.

Sorry just don't get it :s

The response so far has been positive i think and it only equates to a third of the league so worth trying. I like the idea of being able to play 3 different teams.

No more il-logical then spending 15-20 hrs a week in front of a computer screen trying to pot balls whilst half blind i'd say

Granted I'm not a Captain but if I was I wouldn't even bother entering.
Players need ownership of their own team, but in lead up to knockout stages will have been able to play for both or all teams.

Format beneficial to top teams.

So many sore points in Clan Leagues it's losing all appeal

RIP Funkypool, the end is near

I have to agree .. Players should be team tied to the first team they play for ... Faust has the correct way of doing it.

Other than the necessity of subbing players in to cover someone why would anyone want to change their original line-up? The teams i put down earlier were not cast in stone but looked good for a start. I would have no intention of altering them mid way through.

I think the more teams the merrier and if a sub is required here and there to make it work im up for that. As for bringing the best players, if they have been knocked out,back in to strengthen a weaker team, that is wrong and not in the best interests of the game or format.

Keep it open till the playoffs. Then teams that have gone through get to use the 4 -5 players they have used and 1 extra sub.

Thanks for the kind words Gaz and Spoonie. I agree that it's much better the way we do it, but I also think you have to take into consideration that some teams don't have a captain @nal enough to police their players on social media, text messages, phone calls etc.

Some teams (especially if they entered 3 teams) have so few super active players, they would be an absolute knightmare to get games played against if they had zero flexibility. We've won the FCL, FBL AND the SL before, all off the back of defaults, and it definitely detracts from the victory. The only reason Keith is running it the way he is, is to try and avoid big defaults. I know it should be a captains responsibility not to overreach but history shows that some always will.

We'll stick to our set teams, and when other teams don't (which is their right under the rules), we'll drag their names through the mud, and I'll get another muting and be forced to go on holiday again!

Faust has chosen to keep uprising teams separate but even he had to do a switch last season due to inactivity. It is up to each clan how they choose to run their teams.

So am i over reaching with 3 teams? I m not going to sit here and suggest i know better than people who run clans longer than me. I just thought it looked good for 3 with 16 players.

I certainly wouldnt want my name dragged through the mud

I would like for a few teams to try 3 teams if they have 16 players who are all active as the more teams the merrier. But if a clan had 16 players and 4 or 5 were inactive I would hope captain would have sense and go for 2.

I have 16 pretty active players but im going for 2, I just personaly prefer doing the minimum as I've seen teams being stretched thin by doing 2, last season.

http://funkypoolclanleagues.weebly.com/fcl.html

FCL Season 26 schedule can be found here, please can i get team lists by Sunday 23rd August so i can release games.

Only change for FCL this season will be that the clan who wins will get 3 points and a draw will be 1 point. Bonus points for winning the fixture are removed. All clans are playing each other twice and there will be no split after the first round of games.

Substitution rules have changed for all leagues, as we are running with 3 week deadlines, no subs will be permitted in the first 2 weeks after the fixtures are released. You can however still swap games to enable time zone issues or to get games completed. Week 3 all clans can do unlimited subs. The only exemptions to the above is if a player is banned in the first 2 weeks you can sub him out and if a player deactivates in the first 2 weeks the clan can sub him out but they must remove him from the team. If captains choose to select inactive players this will now be highlighted and watched and would go against a clan if games end up going to default.

I have an issue trying to update the rules on the website as i am no computer whizz and for some reason i cannot amend like other parts of site. I will hopefully resolve this but until such times as i can, please can all captains make sure they are aware of any rule changes that have been implemented and make sure that their players are also aware.

Any questions please feel free to message me anytime.

I was just discussing the new scoring system with beenjammin on cam, when suddenly his screen went milky white. I hope I've not developed a cataract!

So does that mean that not all the games need to be played if a fixture is already decided?
