Let's get the tires kicked and get moving on this.

Let's get a board together.

I think people are still thirsty for another league. Why wait 6 months?

split the community into 4 teams. and make a rule that each team can only be 300 ratings points difference. So everyone will get to play.

I think community members should step up and run the league instead of relying on the staff.

We can certainly help with the website, guidance based on lessons learned with ACG, ect. but we shouldn't have to rely on them to be as heavily invovled as we were in ACG (not myself but the majority of the people behind ACG were staff).

While some ARC staff members were involved with leagues in the past it was not even close to the majority.

If anyone does start a league, please don't make it as long as ACG.

People didn't like the league length? I thought it was alright. I think it was just drawn out a bit by the holiday break that occurred.

yeah, if it wasn't for the holiday break + the extra week to finish games, i think length would've been pretty good.

maybe next time, if you want it to be even faster, have teams only play each other once throughout the season. randomize games so that everyone has half of their games as home, half as away. you could also neutralize the home team advantage, at least in the regular season...i.e., you still have one team ban 1 or 2 maps and the other team pick the map, but the team that bans gets to pick color choice for BOTH halves. You let the home team decide whether they want to be the team that picks the map, or the team that gets the color choice. It's still probably an advantage to pick the map, but between the bans and the complete color choice, it's a lot more double-edged.

An added benefit of this is...if teams only get to play each other once in the reg season, the playoffs are less predictable and more exciting, because even though you got to see who won between each team, it was only one game and one specific map.

If anyone is interested in running the league and needs some help or assistance in any way, count me in.
