yiiiiis

We should definitely use the knowledge we gathered from the past leagues to first of all put up a veto system like we have in the CS scene for example. Don't know about other changes yet but I think the rules Dan set up over the past leagues are useful and we should be aware of them and use most of the rules again, and maybe overwork some of them if necessary (as mentioned, the veto system for example)

For the gamemode I'd like to suggest Arena and CTF. Some time after the 5th League Dan set up a tournament for one weekend which was in the arena game mode and I loved it since this game mode gave me this feeling of playing back when I started with AoS, but still I don't feel like it should be considered for being played a whole league long, I'd rather like to see it being played for a short period of time just like it was played after the 5th league finished. It's fun and you can always see interesting plays in an arena game but the skill level is way higher in a CTF match 5v5 with construction just like we had it back then. Interesting towers, sneaky plays and flanking all over the place.

We should definitely KEEP the old format of a 5v5 CTF. Overwork some rules to make the gameplay and overall organizing more precise and less chaotic then it was back in the first 5 leagues. Don't get me wrong, I like the fact that so many people try to bring in their ideas but speaking for me and many other players who attempted all 5 leagues it's the best thing to keep the old format and just work on it with including new maps, rules and a better organizing over all.

Oh and also dont forget to make screenshots of players weapons a rule alright

Considering the amount of replies to this topic, I wouldn't recommend a 5vs5 at all. 3vs3 or 4vs4 at most is more realistic to set up. If you can gather more then 4 people, then make the superfluous players warm up the seats.

I'd agree with your first sentence but thinking further I really hope and I expect many more old teams to revive and join this league, let's just wait for it. Also Eimis mentioned this under this one or under another thread that a 4v4 on maps like Standoff would not make too much sense so if it would come to a 4v4 format there should only be smaller maps played. I'd agree with this one but it would be very sad if classic maps were kicked out just because we cannot get that 5v5 format together.. there can still be subs if the case of having too less players appears imo, but thats the worst case scenario. Let's give the 5v5 a try.

I have started discussing with certain members of the community about a revive. I'll keep the players posted.

Standoff wouldn't be completely terrible when I think about it. I remember one of the previous leagues' biggest problems was that it was basically impossible to break into the defenses of competent teams after 10 minutes into the game without some sort of insane spawnkilling/tunnel shenanigans or shit like that. Maybe 4v4 would allow for more volatile play, idk though.

Update! The league rules post is almost done and the chosen rules are being discussed with league staff/past members.
