Well, congrats to the Musketeers and the Black Flag.  A disappointing end to the season for the Leopards as the only points we could muster over the final 5 games of the season was a single SO win.  But I kind of knew we were doomed as we are extremely streaky and were in the middle of a losing streak.

Last season, my 3rd D pairing consisted of Titus Sellers and Yan Sakovich.  There must have been some animosity in the locker room that I was unaware of because in today's game between the Victors and Plastic Attack they dropped the gloves.

In Topic: Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

I am a fan of all the changes/improvements being made for the upcoming release and appreciate all the work being done to make it happen.  I do have a few other ideas that may be beneficial for the game, but will wait to post them when I have more time to elaborate - most likely in the focus group.  Just one question and one comment for now.

 

TIMING:  Bouncer asked above and I will ask again... is there an approximate date for the release?  Are we talking closer to September or November?

 

FINANCES:  Personally, I have no issue with the monthly fee and plan to support the game, but I do share some of the concerns already mentioned.  If people feel it's not worth it, then fine.  But I'm afraid there will be many people who simply can't contribute at this time (I've been in those situations before) and am concerned that with the expanded worlds and leagues there would be >50% computer managers, which would set the game back in quite a few ways.  I'd throw out some ideas, but feel it would be more appropriate to discuss privately when finances are involved.

Slipdog - you make a valid point.  There was talk of a North American style world without promo/relegation possibly being implemented at some point (not sure if that is still in the long term plans), and that would definitely put more emphasis on drafting and developing younger players.  I think the relegation aspect turns a lot of people off since you put a lot of time and effort into building a team and can have everything ripped from you over 1 bad season, but it is what it is. 

 

I guess one thing to keep in mind is that the number of teams who promote/relegate every season are minimal in comparison to the number of teams in a league.  It is very possible you stay in the same league for 3-5 seasons... I was in BHL for 4 seasons before promoting to SHL, and have now been in SHL for 3 seasons with no signs of promotion/relegation in sight.  Even if you do promote, you can keep those players with you and continue to develop them.  They may eventually be ready to compete in the league you are in.

Forever connected by some weird magnetic force.

 

Season 12 - tied in points (both promoted from BHL to SHL)

Season 13 - tied in points

Season 14 - tied in points until the final day of the season

 

Season 15...
