I like this league idea because it gives me a chance to see improvement and move up to a degree. Let's be honest, I'm not winning any tournament that I enter. But I can win some mid-level matches if I don't noob out, I can progress over a "season" to get myself ranked, and maybe I make a mad scramble at the end of the season to make it to the upper league. Such a setup gives me goals that are within my reach, whereas the tourney format gives me impossible goals. So I like the idea.
The upcoming pay tournament, for example, has no incentive for me. I'll probably throw in my $10 because I'm a good sport and you young pros need a pizza. But it's not a gamble because I have no chance of winning back anything. Yet.
That being said, logistically it seems the problem has historically been getting matches done over a reasonable period of time. But if players were willing to communicate more frequently, and perhaps jee can facilitate this, then this could get done.
I've also been thinking that a 1v1 league for mirror matches with all ten dg's would be interesting too. Who's the top ub? Who's the top tb? Could be interesting, and a league format would help. Interesting replays and builds, to say the least.
