division 2 years ago and it was a joke for us, felt like a waste of time.
Imo, this is one of the most important observations made until now.
I think this comp brainstrorming should start from here
Allow me to make comments on a few topics:
-1 map rule enforcement.Cant see any benefit here. It will just be a 2nd radom league after some point.
-Enforce participation to all clans is not a good idea. Clans should have free will. And if many of us "fight" for cds to have less control..then this would be outrageous.
-Relegation/promotion its the only way to do it ,if its decided to have more than 1 division.
-Bigger home sets (instead of 2-3-3 make it at least 3-4-3 or 4-4-4)
-Its a bad idea to have a league with many teams playing one round robin. After a while It will become very uninteresting to most of the teams. think maximum of 8/10 is what we can afford
Also allow me to suggest a different(i hope) format:
- x clans automatically qualified to 2nd stage through CL5 standings(ex: 1-3trd pr.league+1st 2nd league+1st 3rd league)
-Rest of the clans will have to go through a qualifying stage to reach stage 2(ex: x number of groups of 3/4/5 clans . 1st/2nd goes through
-x clans allready eliminated and x clans are now alltogether in the second phase. Small groups are made again to reach a final stage of 6/8 clans max
Edit: Ive made a simulation to better show what my idea isSimulation:
-6 directly in Stage 2
-25 competing in Qual.StageQualification Stage:
-5 groups of 5
-best 2 of each group qualify to Stage 2
-10 clans qualified / 15 clans eliminatedStage 2:
-4 groups of 4
-best 2 of each group qualify to final stage
-8 clans qualified ( 8 clans eliminated)Final Stage:
-1 group of 8
-6 best teams skip qualifying stage in CL7
