Go and sign up for Season 8.

The starting date is still tentative.

NOTE ---- BIGGEST CHANGE: ATTENDANCE LOCKED PLAYERS ARE LOCKED TO 2/5 GAMES IN PLAYOFFS. BE WARY.

I don't get the thing with attendance, whats the point of having a "locking" mechanism if all the attendances are locked. IE the note says that if you play about the lets say 90% mark then its an auto forfeit. Whats the point of locking then?

if you are locked you can only play 7 games regular season and 2/5 in each playoffs series, the attendance is to let the owners know your estimate of attendance not a forced attendance.

NOTE: attendance has been changed on the sign up sheet, there are now only 3 attendance options, locked attendance, 60-80%, 80%+. We are moving all past 50-60% slots into 60-80% and ask anyone with the 60-90% slot to resubmit their form.

have you considered an alternative approach to attendance locks - "sundays only" or "weekdays only", for players who are specifically restricted by a set schedule. the current system screws players who can only play sundays, as they must lock themselves out of 3/5ths of playoffs despite knowing they could play them.

We want the playoffs to be a reflection of the regular season for each teams. Hence the lock for playoffs if you are lock for regular season, that way the playoffs has less potential of being completely different from the final standings while still allowing for upsets. The schedule of playoffs being different from the schedule of the regular season is a big reason why the lock is necessary for playoffs. The lock is a tool for players that wont be able to make all the games while not being overdrafted, since playoffs are a lot more important we do not want owners to draft players locked just for the playoff potential. With the lock they know beforehand what they can get out of the player and can judge their team setup more efficiently.

ok, but understand that i'm signing up unlocked while still indicating i will be missing a lot of games - this is to remain eligible for sunday playoffs despite my weekday unavailability.

That point right there is why the Lock should not carry into the playoffs. If they are different schedules how is a lock for one schedule suppose to then limit a players availability on a different schedule. If you have two separate schedules there should be a separate lock option instead of one for two separate things.

We want the playoffs to be a reflection of the regular season for each teams. It is a tool, if you dont need that tool, that is okay.

If you have further questions please pm management.

thank you.

same-ish. Probalby can't make most Sunday games, but would most likely be able to make playoffs.
