    start date depends on qan.

    not sure we'll be ready in time for september 3, which was the target date. i think september 10 would be fine also, though.

    we've been in communication through august, and i sent him all the formulas and updated basing matchmaking parameters, among other things. he's in the process of coding and implementing those and putting up a rudimentary website to automatically track $ values in every league.

    We have some decent jav data. Jav and wb is basically the same thing.
    Really need some base data for testing.

    Game data is going into the database automatically now. We're also storing game info using the TWD format, so eventually we might be able to display that sort of info about each game.

    As Rab (who has taken on the work of designing the TSL website -- please give your thanks to him when you see him) said, we need more test data before we can go ahead with things. So earliest we can shoot for will be the weekend after next, as there's not much likelihood of running a base game during the week before the season starts ... end of summer and population is at the year's absolute low, as usual. (Once fall starts the usual returnees should start to surface. And if we can fix this damn lag, we're basically set for a Steam visibility round.)

    Also need to talk with staff and ensure we are ready to begin hosting again. And we'll need to have everyone sign up for the next season as well (though we can do that pretty much on the fly). Note that you should only sign up with your TWD-enabled name, as you will not be able to play with anything else, and this will be checked with each TSL game played.

    Starting dates should be set in stone and announced widely. Additionally, regular in-game adverts of the TSL/TWDT starting dates should be running, if not done already.
    PS. I dont know if these are implemented already. I only logged in on sunday evening just to see almost completely dead zone. Sadly, these breaks really do harm for the longetivity but are necessary for many reasons of course. :/

    The zone is completely dead unless TSL or TWDT are running, and TWDT only happens on Sundays.

    There have to be breaks for TSL, though. People were getting burnt out by Week 7 of TSL and wanting it to come to a resolution.

    Moreover, hosts need a break (and league operators ).

    If you want to fill those gaps, someone should start something a bit more chill than TSL that runs for 4 weeks, like a small TW Hockey league with 4 teams that runs tuesday/wednesday/thursday/sunday.

    Get AFRI to run it, and I'll help him set it up.

    Last time I wanted to do TWHT (like a year ago) there was still hockey zone who was fighting against it.
    They even wanted to go higher with it to SSCU staff. When we did do it in the pass, Demonic had a good relation with the staff over there.
    I have no idea how the current relation between Hockey Zone and Trenchwars is.. Neither if Hockey Zone is any active..

    We could always do something similair like Strikeball or Attack..

    And maybe its smart to limit the bonus rounds if people really are getting tired of it. (Especially for the hosts)
    Maybe its an option to only do bonus rounds at tuesday/thursday?

    I don't know anything about hockey zone drama.

    Bonus rounds aren't going anywhere.

    The only limit I like is shutting things down at around 11:59pm EST. That should probably be enforced this season.
