What would you guys think of having a Clomp! sanctioned open league. This would let us have a great stable of legit teams and coaches could play as often as they like without being hampered by a schedule. Any thoughts?

I don't really know how this works, but I'd be in. I actually have a lot of free time, it's just unpredictable so very difficult to schedule matches ahead of time. Something open would be great for me, if we have enough people to support it.

An open league works the same as the BB Public league but with a much smaller pool of teams. Basically you can enter a team into the league and then challenge other coaches to play whenever you like. There can also be matchmaking done by the commissioner along with it. Thats my understanding anyway.

If I get a chance to play BB than I am for it. I would also get the league up and running as well

I'll be setting up the 8 team playoff tonight. As far as the open league I suppose it can go up any time if people want to do it.

Yeah I'm shocked. An open format league settles a lot of our previous problems.

Theres a couple of reasons I'm not planning on playing in an open schedule league. If we had 8 or 10 coaches that I was confident would want to play at least one or two matches a week sure it's a great idea, but I can't forsee that happening with the current group that took nearly 6 months to fail at finishing a 13 week rookie season. So inevitably we will have 4 or 5 teams that play all of the time and the TV disparity will grow and grow causing the less frequently played teams to be even more reluctant to play regularly. We could start another smaller "fast" league if the real hardcore guys want to play a bunch of games against each other. It's nice to have a schedule forcing you to play all of the other coaches not only for variety in what races you are playing but getting to know and interact with the different coaches. I personally am looking for 2 weekly turnaround leagues with very little delays in the schedule, I have one starting soon with PTBBL Season 6 and would like this to be the other one, but if this is the plan you can count me out.

I plan on keeping the main Clomp! league fairly small for the next season, no more than 8-10 teams, less maybe. Our seasons have always been better and faster when done that way. The only change may be east/west coast divisions within the league if the split works out to make sense that way.

I want the rounds back on a weekly turnaround as well.

Also, I wasn't planning on the primary league being Open style, I just thought that having an open league for our hardcore players would be better than having multiple "Fast" leagues.

Oh, cool then I thought we were talking Season 5 changing format. I wish I had time to do something like this but I am hoping to get 2 games a week in and don't have time for a whole lot more than that. Although if it is higher TV than starting I have a few teams I could throw in that aren't active right now and play them whenever I could although it would probably only be late night pacific time occasionally.

Yeah I kinda figure that's how we'd do it. Run a normal league, but people can just toss whatever teams they're not using in a real league into the open league, and play them whenever they feel like an extra match.

Until my schedule changes I'm gonna have to sit out on normal leagues as I just can't commit to a time in advance any more, but I'd be available to play in the open league quite a bit.

Alright, lets get the playoffs moving along and then I will look into setting the open league up, unless someone else wants to be commissioner for it.

Questions:

1) Do we allow teams to move between Clomp! Open and regular Clomp! leagues, freely? As in, can my Orc team that's played 3 seasons of Clomp! side leagues play matches in Open, and then still be eligible to play matches in future structured leagues?

2) There is the option for matchmaking being ranked and unranked. It will allow for both to be set as Yes. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I think it means some matches played can be just friendly skirmishes that don't get recorded vs all matches being recorded. My vote is for recording all matches, which I think means setting it to No unranked matches, and Yes ranked matches.

3) In the same vein, it has a Challenges option. I vote yes, as my understanding would mean that challenges allow people to directly initiate matches. As long as those matches are recorded (setting unranked to No) being able to directly challenge seems like a good way to speed up the system when only two people are on, and they don't want to wait for matchmaker to set them up. That's if I understand that right.

There seems to be a couple fresh coaches popping up, so I'm gonna get an Open league started, as it would be nice if they could do their learning games in an official shadowclan setting, so they'd be able to use those teams in future leagues.

I think any Clomp! team should be welcome in either the open league or the main tournament league. They should definitely be interchangeable. I can see the open league almost as a stable for teams not currently competing in the tournament.

Thanks for taking charge of this one Blarg.
