    Kjelstad had forgotten he thrashed me soundly in CCX and yet dubbed a snot 'Barristan the Not so Bold'. Nuffle likes a good pun as we all know, so when my Vamps played his Ogres said snot failed a GFI to score and then took a rock in the face at the following Kick-off. :D

    Gotta love 'Net the Smurf Shagger' though :p

    Nikolai - do you want the reserves to remain in CTA or di they go into a holding league of some kind?

    Just keep them in the CTA for now.

    Hopefully there will be more CTALEs in the future - and else there'll be CC:s

    I believe we roll into the Crunch Cup XI with more experienced teams is all. No play offs just a chance to play real people in a somewhat safe environment.

    I meant the auld world and naggoroth as being unsafe with there bad sportsmanship, munchkined TVs, and infamous killer teams that don't seem to play to win. And ragequiters so you don't even get a proper game.

    I think that all is a bit exaggerated but I digress.

    Indeed, no playoff here. Just a "controlled" rather than "safe" environment.

    The prize you get in the CTALE is experience as a coach, and for your team.

    And for those who had played 6 games in the CTA, they can get five games more before heading into the CC (incidentally matching the amount of games had by a rookie team in last seasons CC)

    That was not the genesis of the idea was it?

    Not really. It's just a nice coincidence.

    The Genesis was "we can't have the next CC immediately after the last one, we must have a break of at least one month" and me wanting "a short league allowing more games" since I have way too many teams in CTA with a six-game history. ;)

    So the "eleven games total" might have been a clincher for "should the groups have 4 teams or 6 teams" - but I dunno if people would have applied as eagerly to a league that was just three games long.

    I now wish I had taken up with those 6 "extra" games. A few more gold coins towards an extra ogre would've been well appreciated by the Smackers
