The perfect example is that by insulting, harassing and bullying the admins to bend and break the entire tournament structure apart to placate up to 8 egos is not the way to go and you will not get what you want. The open disrespect issued to lower divisions - sorry this tournament has more than Div A - was just the tip of the iceberg. If you guys think the general rules of this competition ("rules and ****") should not apply for you, **** on 75% of the competition and reject the high spot in Division B offered to you ("not enough"), no problem, because we have 32 teams who actually intend to play by the rules.
the extra week is happening because of the revised promotion system. Since we had the extra week anyway there was an opportunity to add semis (which was a suggestion from a previous tournament) so we put up a consultation post.
If the teams do not want to do it I can only wonder that they did not bother to post about it before. If it is such an obviously bad idea why the silence when teh suggestion was first made, when we put up this post right up to when everyone knows who the top 4 will be?
I don't see a problem either way. tbh having the final is a bit off in a RR ladder.
We didnt want to implement it
It doesnt matter either way for the admins. It is just a way of keeping teams playing during the extra week caused by the revised promo system. if all the teams concerned dont want to thats not a big deal. But why not make your views known when th subject is being decided?
yes it would add a week, which is why we previously did not wan to do this. But lately the teams decided on a long break anyway so if that happens again the effect is not a problem. If we go straight into the next season we would expect that teams who are competive enough to go through the promotion system dont need along break so we would not increase the total time taken for tourney + break.
