6 probe teams and never had a watermelon-like owner who dedicated that much of his free time to develop younger talent. Kelvin, Rush and Moose encouraged inhouse and team practices though.

Some of our friends from the EU server are ZHL caliber players even with ping against them. Because of ping and active NA rosters, I feel owners rather have them play probe and getting rekt myself by EU stars on probe, I had nothing against them. Moose and Rig did a great job encouraging EU to play on NA servers. It brought our communities together. I agree with Dark with them playing ZHL..If they are ZHL caliber.

-I like Met's idea but please keep "Probe League".
-Have the same League managers for both leagues. Call it something else for all I care.
-ZHPL Commissioner should be appointed by league managers recommendation and vote.
-Probe would be a great time to develop new casters.
-More ZHPL games to help rotate players. If not, play best of 3 games.
- +1 Dark's recommendation on ZHL/ZHPL eligibility (ZHL can't play ZHPL but ZHPL can play ZHL. Should not restrict him from coming back to ZHPL playoffs a better man).
-Let me Probe Owner. (My ZH Resume says I am an experienced Pub League owner who blew all my auction money to acquire twodeuce. Who could only play once a week for like 3 hours. Perfect Pub League season 0w - 0L )

So, you're saying that a player who is in ZHL could coach a ZHPL team in addition to being in ZHL? If so, that sounds pretty reasonable since the ZHL and ZHPL teams aren't attached so that would make sense.

Correct.

I think a best Best of 3 series with a 5 minute intermission between games would be a great idea under this system. It'd give the team coaches a chance to quickly go over things that might have went wrong during the game and give them an opportunity to correct their mistakes.

I strongly agree that we should have at least two games for probe with 5-10 minute intermissio.

I also would like to say... It's easy for ZHLers to sit there and say "we don't need casters for probe"..
I strongly disagree.

Part of the joy of playing in a league, is knowing that it's not just a glorified IH. If casters are not casting probe games it would kill the experience for a lot of players, myself included. I think its a huge mistake to try and remove casting from a developmental league, where most of its players will never see a lick of ZHL notoriety, exposure.. And it's just a great way to make probes feel excluded....
