New rules regarding clanners
« on: May 31, 2024, 09:06 PM »
The following rules have been added to the leagues rules:
  • In the second half of each season, players are allowed to play matches for a single clan only. Their victories as part of any other clans will be void (at the moderators' discretion).
  • In the playoffs, clans are only allowed to use players who were members of the clan at the end of the corresponding season, and who didn't play for any other clans in the second half of this season. Using players who left the clan after the season ended is allowed.
These rules are in effect already on the Allround league season #30 and Free league season #45.

You can check the seasons info site to see if we've reached the second half of each season. For example, when there's less than 30 days remaining, we are in the second half of the Allround league season.

Really like these new rules, some of us have been talking about this on and off for a while.

It's good to know that even if a clan dissolves and the members split into other clans, that they can still play together to win the awards for that Season. To know that we can still have a Playoff event with teams identical and relative to the teams we played during the Season.

It's a great way to make sure the League is balanced to show which players/teams performed best together during each Season and in each era.

I would suggest an addition to the 2nd rule, however it would be amended.

With these rules, it's possible to recruit players on the last day of the Season, and use them in the playoffs, even if they haven't played any Seasonal matches. This of course is easily abused and the only reason it isn't abused is because most of us actually respect good sportsmanship.

However, I think we should have a rule to make sure nobody can abuse this rule.

This is the rule now:

  • In the playoffs, clans are only allowed to use players who were members of the clan at the end of the corresponding season, and who didn't play for any other clans in the second half of this season. Using players who left the clan after the season ended is allowed.

My proposal:

In the playoffs, clans are only allowed to use players who were members of the clan at the end of the corresponding season, who didn't play for any other clans in the second half of this season, and who have played at least 1 match for the clan no less than 1 week prior to the end of the Season. Using players who left the clan after the season ended is allowed so long as they have an active record of Seasonal matches during that Season for the clan.

Feel free to word it in a way that summarizes it up in less words so it looks more presentable and simple.

Remember clans can only use players who didn't play for other clans in the second half of the season. So you are talking about returning players. That doesn't seem like a big concern?

In the playoffs, clans are only allowed to use players who were members of the clan at the end of the corresponding season, who didn't play for any other clans in the second half of this season, and who have played at least 1 match for the clan no less than 1 week prior to the end of the Season. Using players who left the clan after the season ended is allowed so long as they have an active record of Seasonal matches during that Season for the clan.

In other sport events, a player might be injured and return only for the playoffs, which is fine. The proposed rule should only apply to players who were added in the second half of the season. We don't want to make the rules too complicated, though.

I actually agree with all that Senator, but still think if someone like Random00 or Anubis, or saltyk9, or any other of the top player legends returns, joins a clan in the last week. They could literally be the majority skillset that achieves victory for that clan.

I'm not saying this is going to happen, I'm not saying it's even a problem for everyone. I personally don't think it's fair to leave that possibility open.

It's funny because part of me believes everyone should have the freedom to do whatever they enjoy, and that I'd also PREFER to see the best possible players in playoffs.

Call it a gut instinct where it just feels immoral to me. Though in fairness, it's not a dealbreaker and if it's not a problem for anyone else then there's no need to do it lol.
