    All right folks.
    We still have a few weeks before end, but I'd like to get on early planning and see who would be interested in playing next season.

    We have a really interesting situation here where 4 out 6 original teams really took off and how have very high TV comparing to the rest of us. Unfortunately, large inducements are not very beneficial in mixed races leagues as you are not allowed to hire any Star Players.

    I really want to level up the field a bit and avoid putting new teams against the heavy weights. At the same time I don't really want to change format significantly, but rather keep it in the same shape and form.

    Therefore I am thinking about the following for next season:
    1. The top division will contain 4 teams and they will play 3 games next season, normal Round Robin format.
    2. The rest of the teams will be divided either in 4, 6 or 8 team divisions with the intent for them to play more games (4 team division will play double rounds).

    I think this would be the fairest approach as opposed to resetting the whole league. Do you agree? Or can you think of anything better?

    So, for now, let me know what is your plan for the Season 4 would be according the rules above. Post in this thread and with the following:
    1 - Continue with the same team
    2 - Rerolling a new team
    3 - Taking a break
    4 - New coach with new team

    I would be in for 1or 2. Leaning towards 1 unless I really take a pounding in the next game.

    @mamutas So is this a temporary setup in order to get the lower tier teams up to the TV of the top 4 faster?

    Yes, that is the idea. I can't say whether it is temporary or not as I had not planned for it in the first place, but I surely hope so.

    Oh, yeah, I am back for another season. I'll keep going with the Elves, but may reroll to a team with the real rerolls.
    1 or 2 for me.

    If all the lower TV teams reroll the TV gap isn't going to close.

    I'm probably sticking with the Storm. Would like to see more than 3 games next season though.

    You have a point, but I think John and L-Kid are sticking with their teams. I gotta beat you with a different team than yours when I come for you, champ :p I'd take some free skill ups to get started just to help out, though :D

    I would like to return with my "The Everchosen of Chaos" as the qualifiers are bit cooling down and I like the idea that I can avoid playing with those killer teams as we can't get starplayers. (My team keeps dying enough against rookies as it is.)

    So, returning coach from a break. Is it 1 then?

    Good to see you're giving the undead a try, going by team name I'm guessing a 4 mummy build?

    6 mummies is better than 4.

    6 mummies, 5 zombies and 2 RR would be a nightmare to coach though lol
