As posted on the front page, this thread is for feedback regarding the update to custom leagues. Let me know what you think Smile

4. Currently, existing teams can not be moved into a league.

Could you clarify on this? Does this mean the old way of creating teams doesn't work now, or only for leagues with these new custom settings?

The old way still works, but it won't connect the team to the league (and won't be able to use custom rules, or alternative rosters). There are certainly plenty of things still to do in terms of ease-of-use and additional features, but I wanted to push out the basics first to get some testing and feedback on the core technology.

So for now, you can not move an already created team into the league and you'll need to do the following to use the new features:

1. Set up a ruleset (/p/ruleset)
2. Connect a group to the ruleset
3. Make a team with the new Create Team link in the group overview page.

Ok but teams that are already in the league are safe, correct? It won't break them if a league adds custom rules through the new system?

5. Client options can be configured for teams in a league, which means you can finally change these things without being forced to start a tournament.
Where can you change those options?

Oh, I've found it Smile

If a group is converted to a league (ie, a ruleset is added) with teams currently part of the group, the teams are left unchanged.

Note that this would cause problems with playing matches between newly created teams in the league and the old ones (in the group), as they wouldn't be part of the same league at that point.

Create a tournament for those matches.

Oh, yeah, obviously Smile
But I wonder if it's doable to make tournaments globaly more easy to configure: if I need to create a tournament which alternates some games with overtime and some games without overtime, it could be nice to get this option directly in the tournament page.
For now you only can do it with two tournaments, and move teams from one to another using fillers.

But you already have plans for the tournament page, right? Or maybe my request is too specific.

could we have a selection between Right Stuff and Stunty preventing Tackle when blocked?

EDIT:

I'm browsing through the various options before going to bed - tomorrow I'll give a deeper look. being able to modify the rosters composition, I foresee & hope, could make a great feature.

Eek! Very Happy

Have the fouling options changed or is that a typo?

So will leagues & tournaments be able to use different options to the main group?

So, am I right in thinking that teams will eventually be able to move between different groups & rulesets?


All great stuff!!!!
