PostSubject: Have we forgotten the freeroll leagues...Teams vs teams   Fri Dec 18, 2015 12:17 pm

I know this is the holiday season... Merry Christmas ev1

But,the thing i want to talk about is what happened to league games ??
That is(league) was what brought all fatcat together....It was fun was team vs other teams....

Sure we have some nice big payout games on the schedule now...I am cool with it...Some nice games....

But the freeroll league games...Why is it we don't play league anymore??

This is a team site and i haven't seen one team game, meaning one team vs another team game, in a very long time.....

I hope their isn't that much animosity that we can't humble ourselves and have some fun it's all here waiting for fatcat to come together have some team games maybe get league games going....

Just my thought's what do you fatcatter's think ????

Hope all fatcat has a Merry Christmas...

with team league, i think it's down to numbers.....
theres maybe around 80 members that play fatcat.
maybe 60 that do regularly.
but at peak times only around 30?
a handful of teams with over 10 players.
quite a few smaller teams that couldn't put a large enough team out at the same (league game) time.
factor in timezone differences, various holiday times, and it's kind of hard to arrange play and conclude a league season.

on freeroll league.....
this could be done with the right formula, but the last time it was run the most successful players were those that could play the most, anyone with less free time didn't stand a chance.
IMO, accolades should be won down to personal skill, teamplay (where allowed) and a little luck, not by how many times you can sit & harvest chips.

i agree it would be nice to see a successful formula to both competitions that was fair and fun for all.

Given the numbers that Roy has stated, it seems that the only way that leagues have a chance of happening is for the team member limit be reduced to 20 or less. Having read most of the posts regarding the team limits issue, this is not likely to happen in our lifetime, as the old-timers have not been receptive to the idea of cutting their rosters to expand the number of teams available for league play. This is a neutral observation... I'm not advocating either cutting or not cutting down team size limits.

Team league  has been tried  to start  up many many times by Mrs  B, a few teams are  receptive and some ( including the larger teams  )  not...

It has been approved  by mufasa  to allow  2  ( or more??) smaller  teams to merge  for the purpose of league game play and they all split the winnings  received  to their  respective teams..This is not a  true merge as  each team  will be still as it is  and outside of  the league games  would not teamplay with each other in freerolls, but once a week their players  could join to play the league game and field a  roster as  1 team.
So the   size of the team issue  can be easily worked  around if teams  wanted  to play but  did not have enough players. Currently there are 4 teams large  enough  to field teams  alone  easily if they were willing to participate.

The  time for league games is not a  set time but set mutually by both teams for each and every game  with a  universal  " default  "day and  time set in case of non agreement by both teams to any other  time.. so having to  field a roster  at a certain set  time is also not an issue.

As for freeroll league i have  to agree  certain players are retired or  dont work and they can  register   and play every freeroll league game which gives them a huge advantage.... perhaps  something like play as many as  you want each week but  you can only submit  your best 2  finishes or  something of the sort could level the playing field  somewhat.

Rush is always open to playing in league  games, or just a fun   game between  2 teams  if  anyone is  ever interested....  Contact myself, Mrs  B  or any  Rushie you  see   and let us know.

Mrs    you have tried your hardest to get league going!
we have one of the 20 peep teams....n       .......Spicy...... tried to get just four of us to play......n due to time differences       work loads......n   wot have you..............................me n Spicy were the only ones to showany interest at all.......n at the time.....Fridays were the only day she could play
in the TLU    I saw absolutely no replies from anyone
im quite sure that you (Mrs)....noticed the lack of interest.....cause it was certainly obvious....there was not much interest.....put the post up again     ....im willing to bet......the results will be the same
10 people or 50 on a team....seems to make any difference...that I can see anyhow
I've posted back at Mrs.....all three times she has tried....saying I would help
then...its stagnet city.................

Sadly the TLU has also gone the way of league...SB  you have tried  to get interest in it, Danny tried  and I tried,,...

Its a new fatcat  with  mega payouts  so  unlike the past  leagues payouts are devalued and no longer  a main way to  accumulate team chips...  so that incentive  for league is  gone...BUT    the pride aspect in teams  still thrives  for most teams  yet they show no interest  in being in a competition to see who is best  head  to head,,,, NOT in  just winning chips in freerolls,

 That was  what made  league  work.. bragging rights  till the next league that  your team  may not have  won the most  chips in the round   BUT  you bested  each and  every other team  in a fun competition  team vs  team  head  to head...maybe I am wrong and that pride  aspect  in  your team has vanished  and just accumulating chips has  replaced  it.. and now  with  teams joining forces there is the added incentive of taking down the big teams  , kind of like David and  Goliath to add to the pride aspect

payouts   for  tournies has went through the roof,hence the  high team scores  and  personal scores.... making 1 million chips in a round used  to be rare  and  only by the top players, now players  who play infrequently   can get 1 million and it has now become  mundane  and irrelevant.... but league  should not be about  chips  solely its about team pride  and comraderie, and  some  good competition

Yep, seems the interest in league play has dwindled to a trickle.
I guess in today's world it's"Wall Street OR the Hall Street World" here.
Fast chips are the new way.  League was a great way to mingle with the masses,but people seem to be just too dang busy anymore to set aside 1hr a week to compete on a 4 vs 4 team level.
I'll have to say it was fun while it lasted though.

MAY TEAM LEAGUE REST IN PEACE Rose

Personally i think we need to start the league or at least a mini league Admin posted new payout and i like the structure, the only thing i would need is people to keep track till i can update or at least let me know what i need to do for points or payouts.

just remember ive been real busy its been hard for me to keep up with the site since this is the worst fire season we have had in a long time and fire dept trainings
