I think Nuke is an awesome mode and we shall allow. While manual is a bit different, I think it is better to forbid Manual.

But I am all for Nuke games. Also, 2 weeks in advance for games is an ok for me.

Much improved call. Many thanks.

That means there are now 29 spots to fill, rather than 22. However, there are also less overall games.

you made poll asking how many total games we want and lot of players said 3-3-3 also. if you count how many of them said 4-3-2 and how many of them said 3-3-3, you wouldnt count big difference.


jpcloet wrote:[*]The top 2 Clans in each division will be sent to the bracket playoffs
[*]Playoffs and relegation will be a 8Q-7T-4D with each side choosing 4Q-3T-2D as described below as the regular season format. The additional triples map is currently being voted on in the CLA and will be Esc-Chained-Sunny.


again the same situation (about playoff) like in season 2. is this league or cup? if this is league then it may be played like league not like cup. we already have conqueror's cup format for clans who like cup system, but this one is league, and I think it should be also ended like league. my suggestion is that 8 advancing clans former final league and again play each other home and away. imagine 8 top CC clan to play round robin league! that would be awesome and more fair that winner is decided on that way than classic playoff where winner is decided in ONLY 19 games. it would make the league longer only 4 sets of home and away games (currently 5+3 in playoff=8, and with that suggestion 5+7 in playoff= 12), but it would raise this league to much more competitive and funny format where winner would be decided in much more fair format than only 3*19 games.

anyway, for crucial things like 4-3-2 or 3-3-3 and playoff format, I think the best would be to give every team leader 1 vote for choosing the best solution and which solution gets the most votes it will be implemented.

and, I agree with Dako, nuking cards are awesome and give to tactics another dimension. it definitely should be allowed.

Right now, the league will likely stay traditional and let the wars do/have the innovation. As for doing a second phased league, that was considered, however, we don't want to take the whole year to do the league and want teams to also do wars and also take part in the CCup. Clans end up doing 2 things at once for the key part of the year, and we don't want to overburden clans. 4-3-2 simply works better for the number of spots etc and some other calculations.

There is a poll in the CLA and right now, it appears that Nukes and Manual will not be allowed and I will finalize that decision tomorrow so that clans can decide on whether they are joining by the Friday deadline.

it wouldnt make the league whole year, it would only extend it by 2 months, as you said that 2 weeks are between each round. so, September - May or June it would last, but we would get much more competitive and funny league both for watching and playing it.

jpcloet wrote:There is a poll in the CLA and right now, it appears that Nukes and Manual will not be allowed and I will finalize that decision tomorrow so that clans can decide on whether they are joining by the Friday deadline.

where is that poll? I searched and found only poll when we discuss about less or more game load that should be involved in season 3.

again, the most important part of my previous post:

josko.ri wrote:anyway, for crucial things like 4-3-2 or 3-3-3 and playoff format, I think the best would be to give every team leader 1 vote for choosing the best solution and which solution gets the most votes it will be implemented.


the league is playing for the clans not for the stuffs and/or calculations, and there is a lot of different opinions how it should looks like, but the most democratic and fair way to decide it is give 1 vote to every clan for every issue, including nuke/manual/gametype system/playoff format etc. so, the most of voices for every of options should make the best decision.

then the league would looks like most of the clans want. it is better to have it like most of them wants, so it will be much more funny competition to everyone then.

Never thought I'd find myself agreeing with josko on something, but I do here (in respect of a 'league' format rather than a knockout 2nd phase).

Wouldn't it be just as easy to take the top two from each of the 1st Divisions and have those four clans play a round robin format, thus retaining a true league style. Each clan could have three sets of (9) home games and three away, same as in the regular season. I'm fairly certain the total number of games will not exceed the format you are proposing now, so it shouldn't run on any longer.

It just seems sad for a team that has romped the league all season to get dumped out in the first head-to-head with a potential score of 9-10, that's all. A good performance throughout the regular league season should really be reflected in the final result/standing, otherwise it turns into a simple knockout 'cup' format.
