Yeah, not quite so funny when they get Morg and a wizard as inducements against a starting TV1000 team...
20Pheinix is willing to submit a filler team, and I am happy to make an dwarf, all-beards, dressed in red, Grumpy Santas team if another filler is needed.
Actually, with Deesno Cacamas having checked in and us knowing he'll be applying next week, we know that division is effectively filled, and we can fill the others around it. That should only leave 2 outstanding players in the fully staffed divisions, and maybe Kanesuke too.
Ah, Christmas is around the corner. I'd be willing to play one more season with a filler Santa's-Helpers Elves team if need be.
Chaos with full Beastmen?
You could call it The Reindeer Games
I can throw in a filler team if the division happens to be mostly NA based. I don't think it's fair to put in a filler if I can only match up times on weekends ;)
I applied to D a few days ago amigos, did it not go through?
Nope. Do it again, thank you please.

We can't start the lower tiers until the ones above are all sorted in case Groovy needs to reshuffle.
So that just leaves Joose and TheKev; if anyone knows them please give them a poke, as they have tomorrow to get their applications in before Groovy benches them for a season and moves people up to fill their places (which would actually work out quite handily - two no-shows, two spare players - except I'd rather we get every player into the spot they're supposed to have, and then do a couple of filler teams.)
Get your applications in, Joose and theKev.
Maybe you tried already and think it worked, so you're not watching the thread - but you have to go all the way into "view league" and do the application from there, because if you apply from the league search screen the game often just cyanides your application.
I've dropped Joose a nudge on our home forum but he's been offline all day. Hopefully he'll pick it up at work when he has nothing better to do.
I'm ok with not playing dwarves. Some elves in division C would be lovely.
Reindeer Games have submitted an application to K. The Christmas theme tailed off as I only had nine reindeer names so guest stars include bambi and bambis dead mum. Large angry deer is of course rudolph who has become very self concious of his nose.
I think we should have one round of games per week. I really like the league, but it is a bit too slow. I play one game on average a fortnight, 15 games since I started in June, and it's too long a time to really get the feel of your team.
I do not think that 90 minutes a week would be a particularly huge commitment to ask from people, and if we said (for example) that a round of games started on a monday, every week, there would be no need to warn people for not playing games. Your match is not done by Sunday night, you default, simple.
It would allow people a regular schedule of games, and starting the gameweek on the same day of the week would help people remember to play.
The problem with the Divisions is that we get 3 games over about 4 or 5 weeks, then 2 weeks off as we try to herd the cats for the new season. 1/3 of our time is spent in admin mode for the new season. If we said that we had 3 rounds of games over 3 weeks, then the draw on Tuesday or Wednesday, then you have until Saturday without fail to apply for the new league, we could get a much tighter and faster experience for everyone.
Only a suggestion, but there it is.
I played in OCC (orca cola) after being asked to fill a hole in a division by Everblue and they run a strict 1 week system, it doesnt really work there for me because no-one is on steam so you need to organise strict times to meet in game which doesn't work if you have young children but maybe RPS with its higher steam uptake could work it.
Quick question, diving tackle and prehensile tail, do they work together for a -3 from dodging out of tackle zones? tail is a standing skill for -1 but diving tackle gives you -2 also but places you prone, so i dont know if tail will work?
