People have been asking me for my plan B incase signups fail and well I think we are close to that stage, too much time has passed. My proposal is following, as I have not had time to discuss this, any feedback is welcome:
We will skip the traditional squads and draft and focus on games themselves and play in sort of solo/pickup league 8v8 with same rules as for egffl (with 1 hour limit + other changes i proposed)
We will have 6 GMs or pairs of GMs (each GM can select his second in command, who can replace him as GM if he cannot show). Second in command is not something GM has to get, but if he does not get one and fails to show for his timeslot, he will lose the matchup. Each week will have 3 games. 2pm est, 3pm est and 4pm est. Gametimes will be rotated between GMs on weekly bases.
Each game will start with 2 GMs being made captains of pickup and rest is up to them. They can pick whoever they wish from players who show up for the match, no preregister needed. Only rule is that each player can only play maximum 2 matches per weekend (i want this rule to increase diversity of players who get gametime, but depending on showups, we may need to rethink this later). In addition, there will be penalties for players who do !lt to avoid playing for certain GM, which may result in their removal from league.
There will be 2 point systems. 1 for GMs and 1 for players.
For GMs, similar point system will apply as for EGFFL. Top 4 GMs enter playoff stage and top 2 will face off in finals.
For players, separate table will be hosted and each wins and losses counted. Top (x) players will be allowed to participate in playoffs (x yet to be determined). This rule is necessary for some vets not to just appear for semis, get picked and win league, active players during main season will be only allowed in playoffs.
So for we have 5 GMs, we need 1 more and we are good to go. Remember, each GM can pick co-captain who can also run pickup for him.
Let me know what you think!
