I'll be gone. Go for it!

@Noplex- I'm not sure, dude. I have stuff going on during the next two weekends. That may be enough for you to build a pretty massive lead.

Well, like I always say, it's all about helping people out when they need me. The awards do not mean more to me than being helpful.

I haven't gotten a killionaire as of yet, so no. And if I could post on the hub and play grifball at the same time, you know I would!

I'm a rookie! But Noplex is a by far better rookie than I. I barely deserve to be posting after him. Haha :)

We're working on having some rookies on our farm team, The A Team Rejects. We're bringing in some new players at the moment and apart from Alex and Jet the rest of the team have no Reach Grifball experience. One of them was a former Halo 3 Grifballer though.

If it's a farm team, I'll go ahead and assume it's euro only? But I'd like to get all of us rookies into a lobby for a pick up game if y'all are down. Throw me a message or an add on my gt: ixPanthro

I will say that my friends at IFx Excalibur are having a difficult rookie season, a big part of that is how the other teams keep subbing in veterans and ringers in their games and really Excalibur has no shot in these games. I understand the purpose of letting anyone sub to get games in, but now its being abused by people who just want to rake in awards for games played, kills, etc. Its really frustrating for rookie and inexperienced teams and could cause more teams not to return next season. That rule really needs to be looked at because it is being abused.

Being a rookie myself, I see past that. It's not whether or not they have a veteran on their team, it's how you work together to win. And honestly, they really don't care much for these awards. They are out for the well being of the hub and teams that fall a player short. So again, they just want to help us all out. Especially us up and comers, you know?

The veterans might not do it for personal gain but he is definitely right in saying it will scare rookies away from the league.

Panthro we experienced the difference in skill when a rookie team picked up tacopizzahunter. That's what he's talking about.

Yeah keep telling yourself that. Now there might be a few who are doing it, because they truly want to help people out. Unfortunately, I know a few players who are constantly subbing into games to boost their stats or to ensure that their team gets a better seed in the playoffs.

Helping other teams doesnt get your team a better seed in the playoffs.

But we were still set and ready. That's how we picked up a win. It's all about communion in teams and practicing,not necessarily how long you have been playing. Team effort is more powerful than any team that brings in a sub(experienced or not). Subs don'tpractice with the team and they also don't know the style of play from said team asking for a sub most of the time.

See where I'm getting at?

But I do completely understand the logic above about scaring the rookie teams. I was a little nervous as well.

I wouldn't say it's really that necessary for a much more skilled/experienced player though. I've seen stats from games this season where lesser experienced teams have subbed in the "ringer" players. In most cases, the ringer player carries those teams to victories.

I would propose, at the very least, that the rule of both captains agreeing to a sub player be extended to the regular season as well. It's a rule for the playoffs, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be a rule for the regular seasonl. If captains can't agree, then teams should postpone their games until each can get their proper roster online.

I would totally back you up and petition to have this rule made.

I do agree that teams are likely going to sub in somebody of extreme caliber hammering, to try and win more. With that being said, once said teams make it to the playoffs, they get blown away. So it seems that generally it becomes a waste of a playoff spot and the missed chance of another team that could have made it. The scenario that Snarf and I were discussing was when we were playing a game and were up 4-0 out of 5 points and ended the game due to connection issues mentioned by the other team, they generally dismissed that player which is understandable, but subbed in TacoPizzaHunter who isn't exactly a pushover as everyone knows lol. He scored the only 2 points scored on our team AT ALL this season. So I can see where a few are coming from. I would love to help out and maybe make mention of this new rule? You're the boss though lol but I'm behind ya
