AsiaFortress Cup 12: Conclusion
With last week's Division 3 Grand Finals, AFC 12 has finally drawn to a close! Congratulations to Too Fluffy for You for proving that Division 3 did, in fact, stand a chance; to ERA for rounding out their ERA of dominance (over Division 2); and to TEAM FORTRESS 2 for playing their namesake to perfection! We've heard your feedback (unless you haven't posted it, in which case head over here) and taken it into consideration, so stay tuned for changes coming to a league near you!

I made suggestions beforehand but I don't know if the admins even care about it so I'll put it here instead. Please read it.
AFC12 ruleset is a hideous blot:
AFC Suggestive Ruleset [WIP]
I do think there needs to be something done for Div 3, if its gonna have a lot of teams again next season. I admit that I don't quite understand how the swiss system works, but my feeling is that my team got a rather tough draw mid season. Abomination Nekos faced 2f, ROMA, and EXB back to back during the pre playoffs phase, and while there were some close maps, losing against 2f and barely losing to EXB, those matches were enough to reduce our playoffs chances to 0% by round 6, while some teams got easier draws in my opinion. I wonder if there's any seeding system in place, or if its just random? Were we meant to face other higher tier Div 3 teams? How are matchups decided when theres a lot of teams in the division? Because I thought that the toughest, most deciding matches were supposed to be saved for the end, like the playoffs. At least, thats how it is in more conventional tournaments.
I guess this isn't really feedback so much as it is confusion. This could possibly fall under the admin transparency thing you mentioned.
oh I forgot one thing but I don't really wanna edit my original post cos nobody will read it
please put up match threads on time!! its frustrating especially for playoffs when we dont even know what map we're playing and it's like wednesday so we have no idea what maps to scrim (cos not all maps are in the pool for each playoff week)
if possible, the best would be to include all maps in the afc rules thread (for example, what maps for UB semis, what maps for UB finals, grand finals etc)
Thanks for all the feedback! Do keep in mind however, that not every suggestion will be implemented, but all will be taken into serious consideration. Thanks once again, keep them coming if theres more.
