I'd agree with you. However, with so many people notifying me that they are taking a break; we can not proceed normally into a round. And I really don't want to take a completely inactive break because inactivity would probably spell doom for the MVL. Thus using Defcon's suggestion, I have come up with what I think is very agreeable solution that doesn't hurt the MVL at all, and in fact most likely benefits it.
As for why not applying it to this season- if we were to apply points to THIS season, the Bladerunners, Crusaders, and Domination of Death would be at a SEVERE handicap as its from their teams that will be the most shorthanded. By applying the bonus points to NEXT season, the bonus points could end up going anywhere (ie let's say Piznit earns 2 BPs, currently he's on the A-Team but he could just as easily end up on the DominationDeath next season) It would make Piznit an attractive choice (ooh he's so sexy in his optometrist outfit
) to the captains when choosing a player. Make sense?
So Season Two ends on April 30th. Bonus Round occurs (May 3rd-May 31st)-"technically" its not within a season but the bonus points earned will be placed toward Season Three. It is a voluntary round. Draft takes place after the Bonus Round because that way captains can also
look at those players that played in the Bonus Round (and the points they've earned) as an investment to their team. Season Three/Round Nine then follows (Saturday, June 1st). And then Season 10, which takes place in July, will be the First Anniversary Round. Joy.
