Quote from .Joey on the 3rd of September 2016:
Why?? You don't need that many players in one CG team just for a open ladder. Why do people run teams like there supposed to be massive clans?? .
I can't believe I need to say this, but let me explain something. I'll use Aussie Underdogs current roster and position as an example.
Blackie and I both work night shifts. We need to be able to choose nights that are suitable for us since we are core
members on the roster. One core member has school which means he needs to be in bed quite early as he needs to travel 1+ hours every morning to attend school. Another core member is based in W.A. and is two hours behind us which means we need to schedule games later in the night which is then inconvenient for another core member who needs to be at work at 5am. And that's just the core members. We only have one core member who doesn't have issues with availability.
Now to our subs. One sub has school as well so he needs to be in bed early-ish. We have three subs that are located in NZ who are also two hours ahead of us so we need to schedule games early in the evening which makes it inconvenient on the people who work and arrive home late. One sub can only play on weekends which is inconvenient on most of the core members.
Now to our new recruits. To be fair on our other members who aren't part of the core of sub roster, we add them to CG so they can get a taste of it and so we can evaluate their performance to see if they're CG suitable.
We do indeed have some inactive players on our roster and it is about time we remove them. A lot of us work. A lot of us study. I myself study full-time during the day, work during the night, spend time with my partner, captain AU, admin the CG ladder and still find time to play Siege. I don't laze around on my ass all day and collect welfare checks every fortnight. I have a real life. So do the members of AU. We put our member's well being before a video game.
I believe the true potential and investment of this ladder is to weed out the toxic teams and the ones filled with nothing but drama. We need to rid the game of all hackers, exploitors and griefers before this ladder can thrive.
So before asking "why?????" take a second to step back and evaluate the situation. Think about other people and their real life commitments.
