    Lowkey may have overstated it, but that method doesn't always work for everyone so it's recommended to just use the league view page.

    That's the division I'll belong in.
    You hear that lads? He thinks he's cut out for the champion league.

    Tom O'Bedlam is sitting this season out.

    Tom_OBedlam @VexingVision really, I announced I was having a sabbatical season. Could you let them know for me? Work have blocked RPS, for some reason.

    There you go. I have done my duty.

    Ok, people are about to get moved about! Anyone else got any changes they'd like to inform me of before I shuffle people around? Just so I don't have to do this more than once? :-)

    I am thoroughly tempted to withdraw grinn from this season too, just so I do not have to face his orcs.

    That's not a valid tactic though, is it?

    In case my joke-rader is not malfunctioning and this is a genuine question: You start out in the lowermost Division. The top two players from each Division get promoted, the third guy changes from the numbered Divisions into the lettered ones (and vice versa), the last (fourth) player gets demoted.

    Not quite - 1st goes up, 4th goes down, 2nd and 3... well: "Depending on whether you are in a 'letter' league or 'number' league, one person will transfer across to the opposing division (ie. 1 to A), with the second from bottom in the number league switching with the second from top in the letter league and vice versa."

    My mistake, I assumed it worked that way because of how my last season's Division members were distributed. Thanks for clarifying.

    After all that's been worked out groovy removes any dropouts, so if someone above you dropped out you quite often end up getting promoted from 2nd place.

    Hmm, I thought you did beat me on Cas difference in our first division tie together?

    Keen to get cracking on the new season! I've got a few players now on the cusp of levelling up, if they survive long enough.

    Err, confused by this, why would someone move you from DivG? AFAICT, you're still in - looks like you got demoted to DivG from DivF. Unless you're referring to the filtering down of Divs as we get the season started, in which case go ahead and apply for DivG, but keep an eye open here incase an opportunity to just up a Div or two arises...

    Should I still be in Div E then? I don't mind really, just checking. I understand if the answer is "no, because of reasons that are beyond mortal ken".

    As Chelsea demonstrated on Saturday winning the Champs league is easy :(

    Probably, yes. Groovy works out the promotions, then takes into account people who have dropped out, taken a breather, or rebooted their team.
    Drop-outs mean another team from below is likely to be promoted, which will cause a ripple effect in the divisions below.
    Reboots will probably go in a slightly higher division than new joiners, if there's more than one division to put new starts in, on the grounds that it's probably fairer for new players not to have to play veterans for their first match.
    Teams that have taken a breather and returned, sort of... get stuffed in somewhere between where they were when they left, and the bottom of the divisions? You don't want new players with 1000TV teams facing experienced ones with developed teams, that's a recipe for a bloodbath.

    So Groovy works all that stuff out, then crosses it out and puts random people into the boxes til they're all filled up, waits to see if anyone notices (they don't; only three people on the planet understand how the promotion and demotion rules work, and he keeps bribing me with slots in high divisions if I keep quiet) and then we start the whole circus again three matches later.
