Actually, this is proving the rules work correctly. The Bowl is a small competition to determine who was the best Ladle team all year. If the 8th seed was so inactive they came up short of players, well damn, they don't deserve to be the best now do they? 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. Maybe something like "if you don't have 6 valid players at the end of the season you forfeit to the next team." Again, I like both Speeders and Phoenix. Months ago I complained to mYm members that I wanted SP to get back in the game more. But hey, your records stand for themselves.þsy wrote: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?
Loyalty to the clan/team isn't the best word, maybe enthusiasm is better? Commitment to Fortress?
It's not any kind of punishment. If you don't have time to commit to the game, how in the world do you expect to be the best? Also, the Bowl season is based on a healthy discussion of peak activity in Arma. It is based on when the most people play, when their school finals are, and it also considers international holidays like Christmas and Easter.þsy wrote:And as I said, there are many players who are as active as real life allows them. There's being loyal to a team, and then there's having limited time to play video games - the two are very different, but these rules punish both groups.
Yes uNk won with new players, but they are seed #7. In fact, they would probably be seed #7 even without the new players. The formula for Bowl isn't about Ladle wins. It is about how much winning you do over the season. (Ladle Wins + Rounds Won) * (Match Wins / Match Total) ...Works pretty good if you ask me.orion wrote:Well then Bowl shouldnt be entire right because the ladder scores you count are based on teams that changes players and roster.. (clear example: unk won last ladle with new players)
