Since there's no point in redoing the tie-breaker, I've decided that ACL Tears, Master of the Dead and USA Biches are the joint winners of Season I. Congratulations to all three!
Poll results are as follows:
I also got excellent
suggestions for changing the league for next season. I appreciate all the constructive criticism!
I may need to decide myself for Smaller vs. Bigger Groups depending on the amount of players we have for next season. As is, the amount of Dropped/Inactive players is greater than newcomers. I cannot stress enough that this league is for all US Citizens regardless of whatever your skill level might be (Illegal Immigrants only have about one more season to play until Trump gets elected, so I won't worry about them joining).
However, since there is a clear majority of players who want rotating templates, I see no issue implementing that for Season II. As there was a three-way tie for Seasonal Winner, I will let ACL Tears, Master of the Dead, and USA Biches decide.In the meantime, we are still open for newcomers, up until a template for Season II is decided.
I will give a few days grace period if the template is chosen quickly, but considering how long both Group A and its tie-breaking tournament went on, I doubt we'll get results that soon.
I am roughly estimating Season II starts about two weeks from now, so that's when I'll stop accepting new players.
