    started a topic Targaryen - Captain

    Targaryen - Captain

    Ogron doesn't seem to be coming back and on steam he was telling me he's uninstalling.

    Ogron has been removed as captain from TWDT but will remain on the roster. (If targaryen had a 5th active Max/Elite player then I would remove him from roster aswell but they don't and I want to minimize the damage for his teammates)

    MARKMRW is going to step up and captain Targaryen for the remainder of the season.

    No player will be assigned to Targaryen for week 5, however if they pass through and make it to playoffs, assuming Ogron doesn't return for playoffs either, I will assign them a player equivalent or close to Ogrons base/jav rating. (Can be someone from an eliminated team).

    yep - what has made this game fun for most of us over the years has been the focus on team based games and squadding - with TWDT and TSL we have two somewhat solo based leagues left in the zone (sure TWDT is teaming, but can anyone really say they care if their team wins outside of the caps?).

    Perhaps scheduled TWD games so people can play with the people they want to play with, but are actually guaranteed to get a game if they log in at a specific time.
    TWD has a borrow function already so if a team is short they can borrow. Could trail on non-TSL days. If there is interest I’m happy to do a bit testing, I know LEGO are keen to get some TWD action again

    I agree with a lot of the people above about TSL kinda losing it's mojo. I think we've seen a recent return of more TWD due to the burnout from TSL/random freqs.

    what time we sacrifice a goat and call upon the TW council to make an executive decision to bring back TWL

    TSL pretty much put a nail in the coffin for TWD which in turn sped up the death of TWL. It offers low quality shit games with a meaningless finals where nobody even bothers showing up. This game thrives on squadding. There is a reason elim died out over time. Solo leagues do more harm than good with a decaying population. Revive TWD and prolong the life of this game.

    I'd be interested in another twl season, I have no interest in tsl anymore and would rather just twd.

    I think it's possible to have 8 wb and jav teams and 4 base teams. We could also make it so wb/jav are separate from base, meaning you could be on 2 different rosters. I think this is the only way twlb could be decent and it's the only league that would need a major change to work. Just my 2 cents though

    on a tournament with teams that small, and if the prizes are solid enough, you could let the caps schedule games whenever a host would agree to be available.

    if no time slot can be agreed upon it would get set to a standard sunday slot. actually reversing that would be best, set it to a standard sunday slot and only allow teams to move out of it to another time during the week if both caps agree.

    6 basing games is doable if it is to 5 minutes

    Random proposal:
    Decide 6 veteran captains in wb/jav to gather teams of 6 and 4 captains to gather teams of 9 for base.

    Leagues are seperate so different teams can be formed into different divisions.

    4 week season which is cup based:

    1st sunday - TWLD Cup

    - everyone plays vs each other once.
    - total of 5 games
    - top 2 get into finals
    - tiebreak decided by +/-

    2nd sunday - TWLJ Cup

    - everyone plays vs each other once
    - total of 5 games
    - top 2 get into finals
    - tiebreak decided by +/-

    3rd sunday - TWLB Cup

    - everyone plays vs each other twice
    - total of 6 games
    - top 2 get into finals
    - tiebreak decided by +/-

    4th sunday - Finals in all 3 leagues

    - Best of 3
    - Wb first, jav 2nd, base last.
    - Winners get TWL Cup emedals

    Us veterans get to enjoy competetive gaming for 4 sundays.

    What made TWL fun was looking forward to each Sunday playing with your e-buddies and trying to build good lines and team chemistry across a season. Reducing each league to 1 weekend isn't really the point, that's more just a fancy weekend event.

    Not to mention, it's the actual history and prestige of TWL that made it competitive.

    The issue in recent years was the fact there were only 2-4 capable squads per league and every other team got smashed 50-25 so the regular season became more dull/meaningless. Only solution is to magically get vets back which at this stage has a 0.3% chance of happening. RIP.

    i don't mind playing against 5 basers and/or getting my ass handed to me. the settings are still fun in 5v5 wbs. but i don't have any drive in me anymore like i used to. sure i can log on and prac a bit and try hard in playoffs next week but that's about it.

    the zone being dead during my primetime is the only reason why i dont log on much anymore. i would love to play a dd or javduel every now and then and go to sleep at reasonable hours. pub sucks because it's about basing and too chaotic. it has been bad since the last pubsquads died. i'd rather play a bunch of elims than grab the flag.

    it would be interesting if you said that the cash prize would be divided totally evenly amongst every person that began that twl season on that roster. that would probably limit the high level captains from adding superfluous folks. conceivably a 5 man team could win twld or twlj, giving each person a good amount of cash. you just cant allow people to not divide the cash evenly. that is the only way this would work. dont allow for the biggest contributors to get a larger reward and folks that didnt play just a little. you must force the cash to the winning team to be totally divided evenly. also the whole roster at the beginning of twl is what you have would get caps to think about who they let on from the very start.

    if you really want more teams and a cash prize, thats how i see doing it.
