Scheduling a date for the draft would help get things moving on this league idea.

A pub league? I'm fairly skeptical about the working of a format like that.

I'm wondering how you would like to see it work. I can think of two 'sensible' concepts on the spot.
1) Have a league, but instead of playing in egfl or egdl map you play in pub
I don't see this being benefical over regular egfl. It's just different settings, we wouldn't even need to use pub map for that.

2) Have regular pub going on but rank squads based on the amount of points.
Yeah... gathering alot of points for a reset is a concept which hasn't been worked since the death of edome. Sure, maybe now that points 'matter' it MIGHT bring SOME interest to pubs. But I don't think alot of vet players will enjoy this. Basically because pub can prove to be fairly unplayable due to either 3freq disasters or 20v20 pubday horrors.

Other then that I don't see much competition in the idea of most points wins. Doesn't really prove who has the best team, but rather what squad has the most active players.

So unless you have something different in mind a pub league sounds like a horrible idea to me. :/

First of all it is not a pub league.
Secondly its nothing like egdl/egfl in sense of having squads face each other in pub
Thirdly, it would be only viable with new settings (1-flag) and with switch from jackpot to wins logic.

Idea itself is very simple.
We either have a draft or use real squads. In both versions there will be a limit for those squads (in case of draft, please read what Azela had in mind regarding vps and max roster, in case of real squads, it will probably be just max roster), but idea behind it is very simple. For a period of 1 month, the goal for every squad in league is to gather as many wins as possible in pub arena. After 1 month, 4 top squads with most wins (this encourages activity but also maybe motivates vets to play more as otherwise their slot on roster may be deemed worthless) get to second phase, which will consist of 4 squads facing each other once (or twice depending on how popular this is) and top 2 squads after that group face meet in final. The second phase would not take part in pub, but in egdl/egfl arena.

Hopefully its more clear.

Heh I guess I should've been more clear :P I responded on laco's remarkt, not yours Lee.

As for your idea, it may have potential, but obviously it should be pub tested to see if the idea catches on. Though as far as I can tell you're allready busy with getting that fixed. So I guess that piece of advice is too little help of you. :P
