Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

But the Bowl doesn't have the necessary prestige to encourage members to stick with one team for 5 ladles. Currently, the Bowl to me feels like a normal ladle except not as good or interesting (maybe that's just me though?)

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

Why is it a good idea that we reward loyalty? I think the ladle number limit should only be to prevent teams from stacking good players for the Bowl. Other than that, it should be about who is the best, not who has been the most loyal to their team... Teams need to remove inactive players and invite...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

...5 ladles is too many as some things are out of an individual's control. If life is too hectic for the individual player, and they can't make it to even 5 Ladles, well they won't mind missing one more tournament . If you read what I posted, I'm not referring to the player's life outside of tron, ...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

I think the fact that SP competed in every single ladle in the season, and still didn't qualify 6 full members is testament enough to the fact that 5 ladles is too high (with only two of those who did qualify still being in the clan). Maybe 4 is doable, though 3 makes sense to me. The majority of ac...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

My two criticisms of the 5 ladle perquisite are that firstly, whilst it's good to be loyal to a team/clan, 5 ladles is too many as some things are out of an individual's control. Say someone plays for CT for 4 ladles, he/she misses a ladle or two, then CT dies. They then join another clan, which aft...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

Less teams (4-6, 4 is optimal I think) Less teams means you can have a best of 5 in the final without overrunning too much A minimum of 6 eligible players to a team to register Less ladle participation required to play, change from 5 to 3 (sufficient to stop teams stacking for the Bowl without forci...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

Blimey! Yeah that's all fair enough, and you're right - the time for discussion was back in the planning stages for this Bowl, not now. Let's use this discussion as a pre-cursor for planning the next Bowl More teams will always mean more competition, as there's more matches to play. As I said, I thi...

Re: Bowl 2 Discussion

I think I've been a bit confused - this isn't the Bowl as it has always been, but a weird mini-ladle that has acquired the name of 'the Bowl' which for some reason allows most teams to play but not all of them, and allows some players to play but not all of them - many of whom don't actually play tr...

Re: Bowl discussion

I don't want this next comment to sound like a snub, because it isn't, but if there is any adjustments to the rules it should be to let Phoenix play instead of Speeders since they have the roster for it Yeah I agree with this Loyalty to the clan/team isn't the best word, maybe enthusiasm is better?...

Re: Bowl discussion

How can we suggest, even for a second, that the rules have worked if we are now proposing a competition in which one of the teams is not allowed to even enter a full team? It's an absolutely ridiculous notion And as I said, there are many players who are as active as real life allows them. There's b...

Re: Bowl discussion

It's a bit absurd to give SP a spot, but only allow them five players (!?) A fair few players on that list have also retired from tron. I think a set up such as this only works if players register for a tron season, and see it through to the end - staying active and only in one team/clan. But player...

Re: The worst things that have ever been written

If you want to partake in the discussion, I will engage with what you have to say. If your only contribution is gonna be 'this guy is dumb', then you are being ignorant. I don't mean it in an offensive manner - I'm sorry if you took it that way - but such comments don't contribute to the conversatio...

Re: The worst things that have ever been written

I think that on the contrary, what we've both said actually fit together very nicely. To use your example - the brain receives information and interprets that information in a specific way, whether or not that information is actually a voice, or just misfiring neurons, or whatever. One could claim t...

Re: The worst things that have ever been written

Yet that's not what's happening - what you're doing, to carry-on with this example, is extrapolating from noise - hearing whatever you hear - and then claiming that anyone who hears it differently to you has misheard it. What I'm saying is that our brains - as cognitive machines - intake signals and...

Re: The worst things that have ever been written

I hate to say it, but anything from Genesis to Revelations can be interpreted as metaphorical - and actually with good reason. Personally, I believe there is history woven into - with some books widely considered to be historical documents (whether accurate or not). But why did God have to have crea...
