I actually apologise towards the people who found irrespectous the decision which has been taken. It has honestly been decided in a rush and with a really reducted number of admins as not everyone were available to discuss it.

This said, I would like everyone to understand that even though I completly understand your points and pretty much share all of them, this decision was made regarding two points, knowing that :


  • Bendetto's point showed a strong will to play their match despite Deacon's showing no sign of activity. If they hadn't express it, you can be sure this match specificly wouldn't have been granted an extension has Deacon (and Cleric in the same idea) seem simply away, doing their things, and absolutly not caring about the fact they signed up teams. And I'm the first to be really disappointed about it. It was more in the idea to give Bendetto's Point and Demba Army a chance to play as they requested rather than favouring Cleric and Deacon has they simply don't deserve it.
  • That they're still two other teams who scheduled their match for today and they, to my eyes, deserve an extension regarding the fact they both posted a roster and tried to play their match.

We have been trying to be accommodating, too much actually and I can understand it triggered this reaction. To be extremly fair, I was expecting it as I told Rene.

That's the reason why we'll be re-discussing everything with Rene and probably will come down to a more reasonable decision.

Sorry again for the confusion.

According to the rules, every monday picknight. I've been vouched for my team to do picknight tonight and cleared up some time to do so.

Just few minutes ago rumors came around there is no pick night and I'm starting to believe it as I don't see a topic for it.

What's happening? I've never done a pick night before...

But all I can say is that there won't be a picking night today.
The time for the matches of this week was extended.

Alright. Admin please reply somewhere when there is a set date. I don't want to let my team down because not finding these posts and missing the picking!

I can see three matches not played (out of 18?). Two of them are between high level teams and I think it's pretty weak to see tournaments bending over backwards to accommodate them like that.

Just because they don't have all their best players for their cocky and stupid picks, we end up in a situation where everybody has to wait and play for a lot longer, in order to fit around their schedule. There are 35 teams in this tournament and they all deserve a little more respect than this decision shows in my opinion.

Posting this here since I don't want to mess up the picking thread right now.

(click to show/hide)

Whats with this picking order? You are curerntly allowing teams with less round won to pick before teams with more rounds won, even though in the rules it says the order should be the other way around:

Quote
Quote
[§ 1.2: Pick-System]
(1) In order to determine the opponent for the next match, a picking system will be taken. Teams can decide their opponent by their own. 
(2) The Pick-Night is always on Monday at 18:00 BST till 20:00 BST .
(3) Picking order is prioritised as follows:

•   For the first pick night, teams will pick according to their order of registeration, from the first to the last.
•   After that, teams will pick in order of points from lowest to highest.
•   Should teams have equal priority, then the team with the most rounds won is given priority.

Also, with teams that have equal points and rounds won, its pretty weird to set their picking order by their team names, which is the case right now for example with the five teams that have 16 rounds won (WUT picking first and BEHWUI last etc). Would be better to just randomize the order in that kind of case.


tl;dr
Currently the picking order is just a mirrored version of the league table, which should not be the case.

Asked Tardet about this rule before the pick night:
Quote
(4) Teams may not pick a team they played against in the previous week or a team more than two levels above them, unless there is no other alternative.
This is why it's from bottom to top, because as the top team, you could pick everyone below you.
I'm pretty sure it will be changed once that rule is changed.

I am pretty sure there will be an update concerning these certain rules.
Thanks for pointing it out, though:)

Would be nice for the week 4 factions to not be identical for both maps.

Maybe for next seasons, in thread where new teams join Division C, old ones should confirm that they still want to play, because it seems that at least two teams after pre-season left and didn't let anybody now before normal season started.

In the first week 2 teams of devision C withdrew from the league.
How will this affect the already posted fixtures regarding upcoming matches? Will there be just default wins for the teams that were randomized against a withdrawn team?
 
If yes, how are you going to handle the issue that a team with 3 default wins will most likely have a better rank in the league than a team with 3 wins in played matches due to the higher amount of rounds won?

After week 1 we will re-make the fixtures, since we still have an even amount of teams, there will be no default wins. Thanks for pointing this out ChatNoir. :)
