I asked for my initial posts to be removed, as to add to my previous posts would clutter the forum. I read memberís posts in the forum last night, and realized that my initial thought of using cases/myleagues was for ease of stats, but the rather generic situation of a cases site detracts from the way we operate now. I think there is a unique league in tops with much heart and soul and genuine feeling put into it. I did not know Mush...but I gather she had a tight rein on negative players, which I think is one of the main issues we have at the moment. I have no problem with any kind of point system put in place as a way to help players play for low.
Cases/myleagues is very generic, and apart from doing the stats etc, which I thought might have been a good idea, it means people have to register and go into THEIR site to see their stats, rather than our own personal and rather sentimental site. I certainly didnít want to see a ladder situation.
Passion asked about how Cases works. In a nutshell:
1. Players register for the site.
2. Hosts are given hosting privileges and there is an administrator, who has overall control.
3. All tourneys are on their tourney schedule, so players have to register for the tourney ahead of time.
4. If the players are odd, there are byes. ( this leaves out wilds in a second round)
5. The host does the reporting on their site, closes the tourney, and the stats are done by their programme.
1. Many players wonít want to register on a cases/myleagues site
2. Wilds wonít be part of the process anymore
3. If a player is d/c or has to leave on an emergency, they get the loss, and the player subbing would do so voluntarily, and wonít be given any points for doing so.
My vote today has changed to NOÖas I was one that thought a trial for a month might be interesting, but I think it would only cause confusion and some might leave because of it.
