Just a heads up I feel like the injected teams requirements is very good in the case of the CGp division. Though if this is applied to lower divisions I think its a bit broad to be putting some of the teams with a core 3 into these spots from last season (compared to other seasons as last season was probably the weakest it's been IMO).

There are countless other teams which have been developed in the time CGPL Autumn has been running as well as after due to teams disbanding. Wont seem fair if the lower divisions don't get a FFYI again due to this core 3 rule, as there is much more teams outside CGPL that didn't play last season that are the same if not better then the current teams that competed.

system works for CGp, but that's about it. the whole injected team thing doesn't work for lower divisions as teams die constantly towards the end of seasons. no system will encourage/promote staying together, because if people are going to disband they're going to disband, there's just not enough incentive in the AU scene (salaries, contracts, time) for people to look past egos and hard times. in CGm and CGi (most certainly m) FFYI's, i feel there's going to be more "injected" teams than there are teams that have stuck together. honestly this system will only promote splitting up, and it will keep dedicated teams from advancing. all you'd need to do is create a team in off season or mid season, stick together until FFYI, wait for the inevitable disbanding of teams in CGi & m, have past season results/experience, get injected into FFYI and bamn easy spot.

but hey, that's just me :>

Was actually in the midst of writing a thread on these changes, putting my 2 cents in.

I agree wholeheartedly with cJaay and burkz, only gonna encourage team hopping/disbanding in teams that don't make top 2.
Works for CGP since literally half the league has to fight for their position, but in lower leagues I see it resulting in stagnation (M and I) and a lot of team instability (A primarily, but M as well).

Personally i think it would be better to have top 4 retaining a guaranteed spot in their current league (but still able to compete in FFYI), and the winner of every division getting a place in the higher league (with the exception of I to P) to give some reward (besides monetary) to winning, with the rest having to FFYI with some number of teams.

Sure, maybe promote top 2 in each division of CGa, CGm, and CGi upwards, but with CGp you can recycle the teams cause they have nowhere to go. You can't exactly promote top 6 of CGm to CGi and then have 2 open invite spots, hopefully there'll be 6 free spots and an FFYI for it.

Btw @Cyanide. when's "shortly" in regards to the other divisional information? Does that mean hours or days.

A rigid system like this which promotes team stability removes the need for any admin selection and allows our scene to develop skill wise as teams are less likely to die at the end of the season. Teams will focus more on playing proper cs instead of just pugging it out and disbanding if it doesnt work.

There is a clear path of progression from bottom to top and teams who perform will reach the top. Teams that die and reform with players from the same division are also benefited as they can be given a injected slot in the ffyi.

The system works well in Esea and in a couple of seasons it will be fine here.
