Chariot of Fire wrote:nippersean's proposal seems to be an excellent solution, i.e. a player is eligible to play for his new clan on the basis there is no objection by the other side. This way any veto becomes a collective decision rather than putting all the onus on the TO (and is a new rule), thereby avoiding any contradiction of precedents set in CC1 where some players were excluded.


Yeesh, I'd almost rather let Chuck deal with it on a case-by-case basis. Sure, it's nice to assume an honorable opposition, but that isn't always the case.

Personally, I think we should try and keep this as inclusive as possible. A couple people have used pro sports comparisons, which I loathe because they're simply not applicable. Trying to draw comparison between how professional leagues handle player movement and how we handle people changing clans here is ludicrous.

Generally speaking, I think the "player can change clans but have to sit out a round" concept is the far boundary of a hard-line on the issue. But I just don't think this concept of clan-stacking is really as big of an issue as we're making it out to be.

I too would find it very unlikely that there will be instances of clan stacking, so in truth it's not this scenario that I've had in mind. What would bother me is to have played against a clan who have heavily featured one star player who then leaves that clan and joins another who we are going to have to play against. Same player, same maps, same direction all over again? No thanks.

Funny , did not know there was such a heated discussion going on here till jackal pointed this out :D

@Namor : thanks ;) i just hope i can give u and ur clan a good fight ^^
@LMS : yeah that was one of the hardest decision to make for me last year , never expected 2 things , 1. to meet those fine drunks like u guys and becoming a FOED , altough it was for a short while , ive never seen such a fine bunch of players and for me i love the most of u guys , tough break for the ones who do not love me ;) 2. me becoming a THOTA , yess indeed it was a hard battle and never expected getting in at a certain point , I even had given up on that . That things change in life , even unexpected was a good lesson for me , wich i use also in real life .
@ Chuuuuck: i agree on not to make it a case by case basis ruling but u also must realize some things are unique on its own , i can admit my case was. It was a case of many years and i would never had joind FOED if i had the knowledge wich i have now altough i am happy i met some of FOED .For me its clear wenn THOTA and FOED go final this CC cup i will not participate , would to me the most honourable thing to do ;) just a little fortune telling
@ Brucewar : u cant compare me to the best712 case , this is now and my case was really different , trust me on that ;)
@ all others : I cant speak for the other cases but sitting out a whole year is tough , sure a loyalty to a clan can be expected but as i said before u can only make ur assumptions for the full 100 % right if u are aware of the whole story , based on the stories by the particpants in those stories/cases ...and not on ur own experiences and as i call it "the past eyes where we all look through " .
I see some different things here ...players who leave a clan already eliminated , and players leave a clan still in the running, for the players leaving a clan still in the running a simpel rule could apply ; not play vs his old clan , most gentleman act to do! For the other players wich left an clan already eliminated ....well for the other players wich left an clan already out , think nippers idea is best here...Cant believe that many clans would exclude a player on that manner.
As for the Ringers , dont know if there where or are any ringers , but as already stated dont believe that group , if even excisted would not be that big ? And if so think they will be easily detected. Last thing : compare CC with sports leagues and also using their rules is really far stretched so indeed not usable. Lets keep it plain and simpel i say , life and CC is as complicated already :lol:

I like the idea of missing a round, however, maybe you could limit the number of games. So instead of missing a round, a new transfer can only play X games in the next round.

Why seems there to be the need to punish such players ? :roll: Yeah to me and think to them all this limitation or missing a round can be seen as an punishment ....so i am very curious on the principal behind these suggestions.

Eye rolling really doesn't help, everyone making suggestions is decreasing the "punishment" anyway, at the beginning of the discussion Chuck's stance was you can't play at all after changing clans, period. If you don't believe that, Chuck himself sat out round 1 so he could change clans and still play, obviously in his head that's what the rule was.

The principal is having a bunch of good players vacating their clan after they lose and joining another still in the Cup is not a good idea, not in the best interests of the tournament. It's not a punishment, you have your opportunity to play with FOED.
It's like a trade deadline (which is a pretty good analogy), in pro sports you have to keep the team that got you there in the playoffs as opposed to adding a bunch of All-Stars. The playoffs in any sport would be a joke if the Championship was basically one league's All-Star team against the others. No one in any pro sport complains they can't switch to a good team at the end of the season just because their team didn't make the playoffs. This is not tee-ball, not everyone is a winner, not every good player can play in the championship. You get there as a clan, you keep your same clan.

That's why the rule is in place, however your situation is different, which is why there is a discussion, and why the rule is probably changing so you can play. Just be careful before you eye roll your supporters again, a rule is being changed in your favor and you thank people by acting annoyed.

For me that rolling eyes smiley was never interpreted as stating that i was annoyed , to me it is more expressing a whondering and a questioning , thats all. Put 10 people in a room , place a yellow coffee can on a table there. Ask those 10 different people to discribe that coffee pot , u will get 10 different discriptions. For the rest i am grateful those discussions come up , not only this one .And yep i admit i love using smileys , to me they always give replys a funny note to some what heavy discussions. So sorry i never intented to let u think i was annoyed and i believe my question was truly legit.

Since that "star player" can only play in 1/3 of the games, that "star player" isn't going to make or break an entire clan.

But, whether a player can PLAY or not, doesn't prevent any player from directing play on any map he or she wishes; it just takes someone letting that player look in on their password (if fog) - which is legal - then directing the play from the sidelines.

So, not letting a "star player" play doesn't eliminate the situation you fear anyway.

That means THOTA officially move on. Not that you can tell without looking in detail at their locked thread. Let's hope for a more civil next round...which I think can be guaranteed.

So, seven of the top eight seeds reached the quarterfinals.

I guess the rankings were pretty spot on then.

Nope, not yet at least. We're still 20-19 over BOFM with 2 games still very undecided.

The rankings were okay, but I wouldn't go near spot on. #24 beat #9 for starters. No way that should happen in a 40 game challenge, and that's on the rankings, TFFS showed before this they're at least a top 20 clan.
