Please post here if you are an active coach who checks these boards at least 2-3 times a week.

The rookie league is lagging way behind and many people are getting frustrated. I'm seriously considering blowing up the current league and restarting the regular Clomp! league again for our veteran coaches. We have already lost 3, maybe 4 coaches and it is unfair for teams to miss out on SPP due to an off week. Post your opinions here as well and lets gauge exactly where we are with this league.

Clomp! used to be a solid league and I don't feel like it is anymore. I'd like to see it back where it was during season 3 with less teams but more active coaches. More variety in teams is fun, but larger leagues just don't seem to pan out.

Here and mostly getting my rookie matches in, but not as available as I used to be. My work schedule changed with the new year and made it much harder to schedule matches, so I'm unsure whether or not I should sign up for another season.

regarding the current rookie season, my team has been mutilated so badly this season I intend to delete it when the season is over, so there'd be no hard feelings here if the season ended early. Razz

I am here everyday.

Getting frustrated everyday.

Ready to pull my tent stakes up and leave Clomp if this doesnt pick up. We used to get these games in weekly and I am hard pressed to even recall the race and name of my Clomp teams much less a player or two.

I would like to see the rookie season end, get rid of the dead wood, and start again. Hopefully with a solid weekly coaches. Did the main league finish there final game yet? I got so frustrated that I stopped looking.

That is my two cents. I have hope that this can pulled back from the brink.

Five games didn't get played this week. I see no reason to keep the rookie league going if nobody objects to starting over. Some of the rookie teams are in good shape to play our more experienced teams without getting slaughtered so there was some benefit to the rookie league. We should have made it a shorter season I'm thinking.

We could do a final playoff league if you guys want. Bang out something in a week or two.

Yeah we finished, my Dark Elves prevailed. Smile Weren't in much of a hurry to do it since rookie was so far from being done, it got put on a far back burner.

That sounds good to me if we have 8 guys or so we could all get a game or two more and just move on. I'll probably stick with my undead and bring them up to Clomp! season 5 if we sart soon.

Problem with single elimenation playoff is its either 4, 8, or 16 teams. We have 9 right now and haven't heard from Malal, who is on vacation I beleive. Do we take the top 4 or 8 by record that are still active?

edit: Mal returns from vacation on the 28th. He currently sits in a tie for second place. Unless we want to pull teams from the league and play each other outside of league play we can't really set anything up for another week with Mal out.

Here is an idea...

Here are the current top 8 rankings:

1. Vulg (Dreadlords) Necromantic 6-2-0
2t. Mal (Ladies of the Night) Vampire 5-2-1* Mal has higher TV
2t. Fey (Karak Izor Skullsplitters) Dwarf 5-2-1
4. Barab (Valkyrjur Calling) Amazon 4-3-1
5. Reng ( Frosty Cold and Mean) Norse 4-2-2
6. Prime (Zombie Apocalypse!) Undead 4-1-3
7. Steevo (Legion of Doom!) Nurgle 4-0-4
8. Nuzz (Nuzz's Plaguebringas) Skaven 3-2-3

So, if we all pull out of rookies except for Mal we could set up these single elimenation matches to be played outside of league play. In case of a draw after 16 turns start a new game and play 4 turns or another half or something.

#4 Barab (Valkyrjur Calling) vs. #5 Reng (Frosty Cold and Mean)
#3 Fey (Karak Izor Skullsplitters) vs. #6 Prime (Zombie Apocalypse!)
#2 Malal (Ladies of the Night) vs. #7 Steevo (Legion of Doom!)
#1 Vulg (Dreadlords) vs. #8 Nuzz (Nuzz's Plaguesomethingorother6.0) Razz

If Steevo still hasn't responded as active by the time this round of games is over we could give Mal the conceed win and have the semifinals in place when he gets back, a week later and we could start Clomp! Season 5, maybe sooner if the finals participants arent planning on bringing up those teams up to Clomp! Season 5.

Unfortunately this plan leaves Azh and Blarg inactive for a couple more weeks. I dunno this is just my idea to get something going here.

I'm still alive. I'm not sure if I would be up for another season with a wife who is 7 months pregnant. I doubt I could be dedicated week in and week out come May. I'd love to play in a playoff though if there is room.

Drop my team from playoffs. That will give you eight.

Not sure if I am returning to Clomp. The multiple week pace has left a bad taste in my mouth. Will have to think on this one.

Alright, we'll blow up the current rookie league and set up a playoff. I'll sticky a sign-up thread and we'll go from there. I think for the next season we should try to hold it under 8 rounds if possible and then do an extended playoff. Basically all teams make the playoffs and the regular season determines placement in the tournament. This way we get some cool rivalry match-ups for the playoffs and nobody gets shut out of the league early for having a bad season.

Sound good?
