Maybe make the rule clearer "A freemium may only join one series per round" (as opposed to "I think a good rule is....." coz that doesn't appear to be binding). Please be aware that if a freemium joins 4 away games or creates 4 home games in the final batch (e.g. in Week 3) that there will inevitably be a delay until he can join/create Game #5. You could end up with a scenario where you are penalising a premium player's team for late joining yet absolving a freemium player for late joining. Just thought I'd point that out as it may cause friction. Simple solution is to either exclude freemiums or make each series best-of-3 but I'm not sure if you want to consider either option. Cheers anyway.
2. Noted, thanks. We'll probably discuss it with the opposing team at the same time we negotiate FoW agreement, etc.
1) Yes, I could make a hard and fast rule. Ultimately, I'm trying to be flexible and inclusive. its up to the clans to use their discretion when planning a freemium. If he has 4 slots open, thats not so bad...if he's got 1 they better be sure he can open up more / RT the hell outta those games etc. Like I said, I'm leaving it in the clans courts to use their judgement, but the "rule" part of it is....if it holds things up significantly, there will be penalties applied. If the clan wants a freemium they either need to ensure he understands he's under special circumstances to complete the series, or not take the risk and not utilize the member.
I would like to leave it up to the clans to decide what's best for them. I like acting like we are all largely intelligent, reasonable people and only punish those who prove me wrong.
Clearly, more than one game series per player per round is to much and should be avoided.
2) That's what its there for. Cheers
