So, as you all have been aware, the clan wars situation is very unstable right now. I intend to fix that here and now.
Let me put a few things in the books.
I'm not leaving.
I'm not mad at anyone.
I'm certainly not giving up.
As it has been fairly well expressed, some people are not in favor of a single person being in control of the clan wars. I am willing to work with that. This IS Antsy's and my project, but it has gone far beyond that now.We have had many arguments over the past few days and weeks, of which we cannot seem to settle on. I am here to propose what I would like to call "The New Deal", named after Franklin Roosevelt's new plan for the American people in order to recover from the Great Depression in the 1930's. At the time, some opposed the New Deal due to its change. My plan here offers plenty of change to get the clan wars back going again, much like the original "New Deal". You may disagree with what I have to say in the following, but believe me, it is only for the best.To begin my reforms of the system, I would like to first postpone all clan wars which are going on until we can establish the new rules. This will prevent anyone from getting confused about what rules we are playing by. This takes effect the instant I post this thread.
Next, we have our most important issue up there.
I have never really expressed my title as commissioner until yesterday, and it was in the original rules, but was removed some time ago, although I do not know why. If participants wish to have a commissioner, then I will gladly be the person to essentially "run" the wars. What I mean by "run" is to lead the council, address certain issues with the council and vote with the council on issues, and update the OP on the clan wars thread and make sure the clan leaders are updating their clan pages.
However, if the poll I will be adding suggests otherwise, then I will step down as the commissioner and be just a clan leader which simply updates the OP thread with new rules we decide on. We will have to rely on the individual clan leaders of the council to enforce the rules, and trust that all of them to update their OPs with Records, something which only Loki and I have done on our own.
We have other reforms to discuss as well.
These will probably invoke the most arguments.
What was my intention of creating the clan wars?
To have fun, not to test for YCS.
I would like to propose a ban of every deck considered "Tier 1", and "Tier 1.5"
This would help every clan out and give everyone a more fair playing ground in my opinion, something that we really need.
What do you do if someone disconnects?
We have had this issue several times.
I would like to propose a rule which states, "If your opponent disconnects from the match in duel 3, an automatic re-duel is declared without siding, both players using the same deck in a single duel. If they disconnect in match 1 or 2, it is a do-over."
What about the 3 types being changed?
So we aren't stuck with the same types...
We should be able to change our third type every 2 months, in my opinion. It makes the wars more versatile.
What about leaving clans?
Members shouldn't be locked into clans.
Members should be able to leave a clan whenever they want. HOWEVER, they cannot join a clan that their former clan is currently warring, to prevent them from losing on purpose.
What about the alliance format?
So we can have alliances.
What about alliances in general?Stardust Dragon wrote: The alliance format would take place as follows:
If a clan A declares war on clan B, then clan B can call on their alliance, clan C to help them in the war, if C agrees. Clan A could then call on their alliance, clan D, to start an alliance war.
Since clan A and clan B were the original ones to declare war, clan C must use clan B's types, and Clan D must use Clan A's types.
Instead of the typical war format where participants get 2 hearts, each participant will get 3 hearts, and each alliance will get a total of 15 hearts.
Records from the alliance war in terms of the war log must still be updated on the clan page OPs.
The war ends when Alliance A/D or Alliance B/C hits 0 team hearts.
So we don't have to fight alone.
We shouldn't have secret alliances. We should make alliances open and for everyone to see. We don't want a World War I on YCG. I have yet to come up with a system for establishing alliances, so if someone comes up with an idea of anything, then please say something.
I would also like to make this "The Thread" which people come to in order to discuss issues with the clan wars and legislation in general, so we can have the main thread be for more in general questions. This is open-forum to anyone, and I highly encourage everyone to post here.
Thank you for your time everyone, and please leave feedback on your opinions of the "New Deal".
