I actually find myself azela did a good job hosting. Most people who are on his balls are people who had prior grudges on him, so every negative comment on here seems seriously biased. I think this comment provides small proof of what i mean:

In every situation azela had a neutral perspective, took opinions from squadleaders, or the general crowd. We haven't had any big problems this EGFL, and everyone who claims the 'boringness' of the league is cause of him is a complete moron.
Who remembers EGFL with edge and exalt? Main season there was no fun either, 4 teams dropped out that league, this year has only seen one squad fall, even though both leagues started with 10 teams. Everybody knows the lack of competition is what's killing the fun. So now azela's trying to come up with a solution for that (EG Market). Again he's as constructive as possible for it, and 100% trying to help out the zone, rather then to stuff his ego.
Guess some people on here are more concerned with 'trying not to give their nemesis any glory' rather then to actually make an attempt to keep EG going. Especially lee suprises me on this, as he's always been such a good help to the zone. As for the others, I don't expect much better of them anyways, I'll just ignore them and hope azela won't get to demotivated from a bunch of jackasses trying to get some attention.
rofl i havent said 1 bad thing about his hosting rofl and i also do not disagree that he has kept things under control which is great, there are things though, where he has been completely unreasonable nor able to give better arguments then: i think its better.
seriously the dude kept asking for my advice for majority of the league and when is say that i think that the league was too long and could have been made shorter or at least more interesting for the teams involved, his best response was that i was mad because tp didnt win all its games or smth like that. Rofl like i expected that to happen, the league was boring at first, interesting in middle part and boring in the end for us, good thing we got squaddissovlement match coming up to keep it interesting for a bit longer, i can imagine though how blood and imp feel as they will be more or less without a competitive match for a month or smth.
And the length of the tournament always has and always will in the end give advantages to squads that have deeper core and been around for longer. In year when Speed and Mutiny got to finals, Mutiny was worst from top 3 squads, yet they were superactive for the 2 weeks between semis and finals and took care of Speed, which had ppl rarely online with ease, same way as impurity last season started really strong just to fade away near the beginning of the tournament.
There are alot of ppl who just get active for this league and if your best action for weekend is to determine how many bases despair is gonna use this time, then really its not a very interesting league and people lose interest.
And i still do not understand how this version of the league would have been in any way better then the format i suggested.
