Season 10 Announcements!

Post by Watermelon » Tue Mar 28, 2017 8:38 pm

Hello friends. As S10 commissioner I would like to let everyone know what the plan is for this offseason. Also if this could be stickied to a Season 10 forum section, that would be op. Thanks!

Season 10 League Management Staff

Commissioner (no vote):
Watermelon

Vice Commissioner (vote worth 1.5):
themusic

League Managers (vote worth 1):
Yoda
Marker
Sidthekid
Lightning
Cubs
Gozaburo

Stats team:
Sidthekid
Yoda
Marker

Minister of Casting:
Marker

Hot Secretary:
Gozaburo



Season 10 Schedule

Our intent with the schedule this season is take full advantage of the summer break that many players have from school. Playoffs will conclude by or before early August. Signups will not open until the complete ZHL and ZHPL schedules are finalized, giving players ample information before they sign up.


Game Development

Our beloved developer themusic is working on testing a few changes to Zealot Hockey this offseason. These mechanic changes are intended to make the goalie position more fun, and eliminate bitchwalking (and the shitty subjective ruling that goes along with it). If you see him hosting one of these test lobbies, give it a try! You might be getting early practice for the new meta. Remember to give feedback!


Probe League Restructure

The ZHPL has been a hot topic for debate in the past couple seasons, as a variety of issues have arisen regarding league structure, scheduling, and rules. Before S10 signups open, we will be discussing these issues with the community to come up with reasonable solutions.
-Discussion is HERE


Casters and Casting Incentives

As mentioned previously, Marker will be in charge of finding casters and creating a casting schedule for Season 10. He may also fill in as a caster when no other casters are available.

Season 10 management will be introducing a new incentive for those who are willing to cast/stream ZHL and ZHPL games. This incentive will be in the form of a raffle at the end of the season. The raffle will have multiple drawings, and will consist of Steam gift cards, Zealot Hockey skins, and a date with Girlpower (that last one is a joke.. maybe). Every game you cast or cocast gets your name put into the raffle once. Multiple games casted = multiple entries into the raffle. If you don't want Marker to get a whole bunch of rewards at the end of Season 10 for his shit casting (Kappa), think about helping us out Season 10 and doing some casting of your own!

A new rule will also be instated that teams can no longer kick and/or veto cocasters from ZHL and ZHPL lobbies. Caster lag has been virtually nonexistent for some time now, and it's time we adapt to this.


Management Process & Voting

As commissioner for S10 I've decided to take a different approach with regards to voting on controversial or debatable rulings. I will be taking on the role of facilitating discussion and implementing outcomes. Thus, I will not have a vote. Themusic's vote is weighted as 1.5. This means that in the event where only an even number of managers are available to vote, themusic's vote will work as a tiebreaker.

On top of this, it is our goal to be very transparent with the community. The exact implementation of this is up for discussion, but the following options are being considered: recording or streaming league meetings, announcing issues being voted on in advance to stimulate discussion, and/or allowing public access to the management Discord server (so you'd be able to read and hear what management is saying in their channel, and the public would have a channel where they can talk or type about issues as well).

Finally, rest assured that no forum posts will be deleted by myself or anyone on the S10 management team. thank god
