On Season 6
Hargendorf management has the following to say on Season 6:

"The lack of a TV Cap in the DLE is, and always has been, very frustrating, as is the ineffective collection of rules with the stated intent of making the lowest teams 'competitive', without actually being capable of doing such. Examples would be the watering down of the quality of Restructure Players, and the pathetic nature of the Free Agent players available. In truth, we would rather see no compensation, than these half measures, which do little towards making small teams able to compete with the majority of the league. Without compensation, perhaps the ridiculous lack of a TV Cap in a draft league would become more obvious to all more quickly.

Hargendorf feels compelled to enter Season 6 with the very highest priority being set on 'Star-Player protection' at the expense of the usual effort towards winning matches. Winning has served only to lower Hargendorf's draft position, as there aren't any actual real fans to appease in an imaginary league, are there?

To us, DLE appears to be originally designed to, and continues to evolve towards rewarding extensive 'Meta-Gaming.' The observed initial meta-gaming involved getting the lion's share of trade activity, and securing amazing deals in those trades, to create very large TV teams. Tactically, the meta involves getting excessive amounts of Mighty Blow and the broken skill 'Piling On' onto the LoS to attempt to set a team's scoring drive on 'easy-mode', and with a general Strength and Guard advantage, destroy a handicapped opposition as much as possible, as quickly as possible.

Hargendorf likens it to playing large Chaos rosters back when CLAWPOMB was legal, and ubiquitous.. unexciting, and unimaginative.

Hargendorf has attempted to coach themselves out of their disadvantaged position for 4 seasons, and has not been successful. Hargendorf does not care to 'Meta-Trade', and has instead attempted (twice) to see if the restructure system was viable. Sadly, they feel it is not. So Hargendorf will swallow their pride, and go against their instincts, and perform, as a last resort, the ultimate 'meta' available to a small team in a draft league ruled in the shadows by the cult of Meta-Gaming.. Hargendorf will attempt a tank.

The city of Hargendorf will donate it's time and its team to the other 16 opponents in Season 6, looking forward to what they hope will be a better Season 7. In a league which is fundamentally 'broken' until a TV Cap is imposed, Hargendorf will explore this dramatic option, if for no other reason that to push to boundaries of 'meta-gaming' in DLE, hopefully leading to conversations about what we really want in this league."
