There is still quite a bit of balancing to do, but overall I'm fairly happy with the game now and I think the testing phase has served it's purpose. Does everyone agree that it's time to start officially? This will of course mean ending the current test and losing our existing teams.

If/when I start the official game, you'll all be assigned new teams. As mentioned before, I will allow name changes (sensible ones only) but I may limit that to people who are willing to donate £5 per season (for my time, the game doesn't actually cost anything to run since I'm using the same server as this forum).

If everyone is happy with a restart, I'll do it tonight/tomorrow. The new league will be frozen for a few days while I set it up and get people to take their teams. It'll then start in a week or two at two turns per week (I'm still thinking Thursday and Sunday nights).

If theres still quite a bit of balancing to do, then personally i would want to wait a bit longer, nothing worse than things keep being tweaked and things changing in a game

I'm happy - and Thursday and Sunday sounds good. I take Mike's point but to be fair I returned to SS in 2011 and things have been tweaked throughout that time as inevitably things come up from time to time.

The game works, it isn't perfect, but I'd be happy to start. When do I get my trophy for being the best at ss2.0? I'll give you all a chance in ss2.1. ;-)

No mate. SS1 will continue.

Glad to hear that. I do understand that eventually it may take over but not for a few years?

There are no plans for SS2 to take over from SS1. It'd only happen if everybody wanted it to happen (or at least, the vast majority). Right now, I think about 0% of people want that.

I'll stop the current league soon, at least the processing and put up a new database as soon as I remember how. Then we'll spend a few weeks setting up teams and such and launch in a month or so (probably).

Stop now, I'm top, ends John's run ;-) (would annoy him all the more as I should be second alphabetically !).

I agree with a stop now due to taking the SLFA cup 2.0 and always being the owner of it....

Hahaha

Actually, it'll still be available, but there'll be no more matches.
