    RODAN and I are probably going to play tomorrow, somewhere around 24 hours from this message. I've been in contact with him yesterday and knew he wasn't around today, so we're both still in touch.

    I find it entirely shitty that there is no obviously punishment for Johning. Some of us have something to prove in our respective tiers.

    Just something that came up to my mind I guess. How about people who 'activity win' if subs are not happening will get a + and those who are inactive get a - so instead of just the w/l there's also activity for managers or whoever to consider? So maybe something like 3-1(+2) or 2-0(-3) etc? :o! Might aslo be easier for Oglemi to group people by activity together when they're all 0-0 or w/e yaaaaa :o

    That's a good idea, when managers are having to decide between, say, two 4-0 people, the one with the better activity will be favored, making the ranking even more diverse. Second this.

    I just wonder what happen to the people who get their battles done right away then. Because what's the difference between 3-1 and 2-1(+1)? Is the 3-1 more important or the 2-1(+1) when they've both showed they are active. The (+1) just tell you they were around for that week, but not if they would've won or lost against that opponent.

    w/l should probably always come first for matchups. But it's p safe having both of them paired together anyway if there aren't other similar w/l. Activity can be ignored as if they've never played a week as if they joined late or w/e. The +/- thing is more useful for people who've done few matches so it's easier to pair them or there are many similar w/l people. So like if there are 4 for 1-1 then you can group the + with + or neutral and - with - or neutral until you get an ideal one. Something like that but yeaaa up to Oglemi if he likes this xd
