that's an intriguing perspective there! I'll be sure to consider them carefully.

Wow very interesting point, I'll definitely take this under advisement in the neat future!

Maha's credibility is summed up in... Season 4, New Folsom trades Bulbassaur (1st overall) for Shakuras's Tenkz (35th overall).

swift's absurd thought processes summed up:

play ZHL playoff series on a machine with completely shit, outdated security and hardware, then blame your computer issues on "hackers trying to destroy the season" (with 0 evidence), then try to get a felon re-do after a game completion which has no basis in the rulebook.

We can come up with theories now on what could have been done at that exact moment the dc occured, but that should be used to improve future seasons not change/revert/discount events that already unfolded that complied with our set of rules in place at the time.
Just because a rule isn't in place doesn't mean we can't do something to remedy the problem. Obviously we will try to change things for the future and make them better.. but whoever made these rules isn't all knowing.. they can't predict everything. I think to ignore the problem and just say "Oh shucks better luck next time!" is a negligent approach.

There are rules handling disconnections which is what was followed during the time it happened. There are no rules addressing inter-league network manipulation, and even if there was its not possible to prove.

A blanket rule covering every single playoff series stating if a starting player loses connection at any point the entire series must be replayed is possible. But i've already covered the reasons why it's not a good idea.

If there's a blanket rule that was like the above rule but continued the series at it's current time/score/period/past games won/lost at a later date rescheduled that could work maybe (as someone else mentioned).

Unfortunately in this specific case (not all cases.. you're right), but this specific one... if the rules say the series continues if a player disconnects, that's what should happen.

Round and around we goooo
