Surprised to see CB-fix here. I'm totally fine with it though, leaving Classic league the pure vanilla league of the game and GDL previous draft adp:s are still valid as a general guideline. :)

Will have to adjust my draft list just a notch due this.

obviously doesn't matter to me, but just wondering if y-gc and cb "fix" were voted on or not.

not like I think everybody won't hop on board with the ideas, just wondering

was I left out intentionally ?

Yesterday I messaged icestorm in aim at 10 am EST if I could still join and get my normal position in draft. I didn't get any reply. Now after I woke up I saw draft order being finalized.

Did anyone receive any messages from icestorm yesterday (sunday) after 10AM est ? If yes then it shows I have been ignored. I don't think I was though as I know icestorm and he wouldn't do something like that.

About rom hacks being used in GDL. I think GDL is the draft league for classic as it has always been because there is Blitz for the other.

Of course commissioner is free to change things how he wants, but I also think it should be a vote.

I didn't get a message from you Swos so definitely did not exclude you on purpose.

Hadn't seen or heard from you and you disappeared from Blitz league. Assumed you were gone.

I posted roll call on 11/12. If you want to work something out with one of the new guys and take their place that's fine.

FYI, after Blitz, Classic and TDL playoffs are done, I'm not starting any new leagues on the site for a week or 2. I need to make changes to the database and can't do it while leagues are running.

No votes on Y hack or C/B fix, dictator IceStorm just laid out the rules.

A little surprised Y hack is included...as much as I like it, I wouldn't have voted for it in GDL.

C/B, I'm indifferent.

Wow lol that's nuts. Gdl and blitz are pretty much unanimously considered the two best leagues, you can't just change the rules just cuz you feel like it. Y g.c. has been voted on before as we all know, and the results are always mixed.

personally I just think y g.c. changes 94 for the worse, but that's a whole other argument. I 100% agree with swos that gdl is all about keeping it original, just with draft magic.

I just don't like to see the integrity of gdl getting diminished

Not quite, consulted with several other coaches in addition to poll in Blitz. People do not like the CB hack

On a related note, I found that the Y button goalie control doesn't always "instantly" give you control of the goalie! I think if you get knocked down, or something, pressing Y doesn't get you the goalie right away. The delay is devastating if you were expecting to grab the goalie instantly. In that regard, I'm leaning towards with holding down B anyway with ROMs that have the hack.

swos was ok with it out of blitz, swos has been MIA for several months and did not respond to roll call post on 11/12

Depch was not, Frey, Zalex and few others weighed in, especially during Blitz poll. You should remember that poll as you were the one person against removing the hack, plabax and swos who drafted with it in mind said it was fine to remove.

You're kinda ignoring the drama about y-button. Also, I don't think it's right to assume that people feel the same about blitz as they do gdl. By your thought process why don't we add weight fix to gdl too?

Cb is argument worthy, y button seems crazy to add in.

The two sides to cb are:

1. People too afraid to learn something new and adapt who hate it

2. People who aren't scared of it and like it, but agree to use the fake fix to keep baby city happy

Gdl is the best league ever don't ruin it making it like dumb blitz

Yea, they're evened out unlike in Classic. At least in GDL XI it was so.

I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I agree with TK here (except Blitz is by far better than GDL). I remember the Blitz poll, but this is not Blitz (and please show me being the one person against fixing C/B....I remember saying I didn't care either way).

Again, I really don't care, I'm happy to play with whatever rules, but don't say you got some consensus to remove C/B and add Y button for GDL.

I really don't understand why there should be a debate about Y button. If you don't like it, don't use it?

ps: i never used it

ps2: true story

So much of goal scoring in 94 is based on manual timing. Being able to manual instantly throws off the balance of goal scoring. Takes away the whole strategic element of forcing people to manual early with good scoring method threats.

I think saying people should just not use it if they don't like it doesn't make sense, because their opponents can still abuse it, still throwing things off.

Goalie delay is a beautiful thing, it makes manual an even greater art than it would be without it. You just like it cuz you're sohomo for blitz and it's stupid fast g.c.

Also raph, you only like blitz more because you're a C check whore ;)

I don't use the Y Button for GC. Never tried it as I have my timing down for B button

What exactly is your purpose on this thread TK?
