Main season is finally over and apart from all the drama, it has been quite interesting, but ultimately i think this league holds one the highest % of games ending up in a tie. Unless fr chokes, lags or GM takes unnecessary risks, it is quite easy to just play for a tie, even with a bad show.
Main reason here is not that teams are so equal, but its more down to the bases and especially how the FRs are built. With proper bomblines its almost impossible to take some of them with 7v8 full attack. And in all, bases are way too narrow as well, it takes tempo away from game.
Winner of main season tied 3 out of their 5 games, all teams ending up in spots 2-4 tied 2 games. Its not normal. Our game vs Amphs team was about to end in a tie as well after we had full attacked good 90 minutes. Todays game vs Monty also showed that u can just full defend and end up in a tie if u want to, no matter if u have a bad showup or lagouts.
With normal playoffs, it wouldnt be an issue, because although games can last 10 hours, eventually someone chokes. With the proposed second main season, its a big issue though. With every point counting now, no GMs will take any risks. I would bet my money on all games during this second phase ending in a tie, unless really some bad luck or chokes or whatever happen.
So here is my proposal. Change bases for second main season and finals. Either use some older egdl map or use some new bases i dont care. All teams start from 0 they all have same chances to get to know the bases. Make them wider and frs not so hard and we will see much more interesting second phase, otherwise, it will be just bunch of ties again
