Season 6 Concerns

Post by Tenkz » Mon Oct 26, 2015 12:09 am

Hello, it's me, your favorite community member. I'm here to present a few concerns I have for Season 6 (which, don't be fooled, is only a few days away).

1. Signups
There's a clear problem in the current signups. There are quite a few confirmed top players who are not signing up. The current signups results present the following :
6 First Rounders from Season 5 (Maharishi, Watermelon, Proster, Lingking, Blitzerg) The sixth is Bulbasaur who will be having 50% attendance.
4 Second Rounders from Season 5 (Three, Carlito, htcp, Levi)
6 Third Rounders from Season 5 (Eldersage, Townkrier, Swift, Kwakster, Kaioken, daggius)
This season will be dependent on people stepping up to the next level of play, otherwise teams will be lacking strong players.
Please do not wait to sign up if you plan to play. This makes it hard on owners who are trying to create a draft board or ideal team.

2. Servers
Now that there's a "hard" east server, and a "hard" west server, this is going to be ridiculous. Teams can now be "east'd" harder than before, which is fair considering west teams can currently host west vs east coast players. Sure you can argue "people need to form dual server teams" which is true, but also false. Will we be doing anything about server? Will it be permanent chicago?

Don't see this as a personal problem, considering this new east server is my best ping. I enjoy playing with low ping, which is why it will be unfair for some games to be completely decided by server, although they sometimes currently are with the west server.

3. Schedule
I do not like the idea of having weekday playoffs. ZHL Playoffs should be strictly weekends, and each series should be played on the same day.

Regular Season :
You said we will double up on one day to avoid new year's eve. This is a thursday. Last season, with 10 teams, in order to fit all the games in the week, we had to double up wednesday AND thursday. If you move one of the weds/thurs games to Monday, which we previously did not have a weekday game on, then it still leaves doubling up thurs/weds ALWAYS. How is the exact game schedule going to work?

4. Owners, WHO?
Well, lucky for you, Teroh has PM'd me a list of the owners already.
They are :
MensaRaham
mofowh
hwcubs
KneeGrow
Cowsmoke
Entropy#6178
swamplobster
derpina
wolfshark
Provyseals

9/10 you almost got me

I do appreciate the fact that you've brought to light some people haven't been signing up. From an anonymous source, some people want a list of owners before they will sign up.
I don't see the reason to make it permanent Chicago, which our West playerbase would definitely disagree with. This will be partially up to the owners.
Playoff schedule is tentative and will be discussed by the owners.
I forgot about the already doubled up Thurs. Let me rethink. Otherwise, last season Mondays did have a game every week.

Playoffs should be sundays, as s6 playoffs will be starting around when the spring semester starts for most students, and having weekday playoff series then would just be stupid.

As far as servers go, the only fair stance is to allow all of them.
