Oh, I see you have it set to ELO now instead of overall team rating?
Won't that give a few unfair matchups if experienced players are doing a rebuild or something?

This is a valid objection, and I would support that notion.

What's the refs opinion to that?

It felt like 90% of the postings in the Sea Devils Forum last season were about the question of ELO or OVR. I was on team OVR. The two duels were played with OVR, now we'll try it with ELO.

Yes, there is a high ELO in a rebuild with a low OVR. The winner is already determined beforehand. However, everyone behind this in the ELO will have an opponent that is one position worse. That balances out a lot.

I appreciate that you are starting this discussion now, just before the first week. Before that would probably have been too early. I understand that.

The rule for weeks was ELO. But if FIRE and DRAGONS really want to have OVR, we would have a majority for it and then we Sea Devils won't block it.

11 of 13 games are booked. That's great. I have doubts about the remaining two games, but there is still time.

There are now two kickoff times: the Fire-15 and Dragons-20. Can you schedule games at other times?

You're absolutely right. In that case I'm already satisfied.

Good: Mülheim Steelers are back in RZA
Bad: They accepted the wrong challenge
