    Would it be possible to have a feature added so that Clans can recruit players for League squads without those players being full members of the Clan?

    Often i have a couple of players who'd like to get involved in a specific League but i can't get enough players interested (even with 20 members to choose from). It strikes me that the Leagues would be much more competitive if teams could recruit outside their Clan to field the strongest team possible (there would definately be more teams involved).

    I'd really love to be able to field a team in every League but the 20 Member limit prevents it. Basically i recon we'd start to see a kind of Champions League sort of situation where we'll get the Big Clubs making big signings to try and out mussle each other. The 1 day League has so few Teams when i know if i looked i'd be able to find enough 1day specialists to field a good team, which would make the whole thing much more interesting.

    Perhaps you should remove the deadwood from your clan?

    Also, muscle.

    Dear sirs. My clan sucks a lot. Please change the whole clan system on redhotpawn so that my clan does not suck as much.

    Err.... Aren't the clan leagues supposed to be about clans fielding teams of their own members to play vs each other? What would be the point in even having the leagues associated with clans in your proposal? What's the point if you're just going around trying to find the best possible people to play for you when they're not actually playing for you.

    This change makes people be mere mercenaries than somewhat dedicated members of a clan. If being part of a league is for a individual member important without being forced to somewhat be dedicated to a clan, it might be better to start chess leagues for individual players.

    That's not it at all. I have a couple of players who like super fast 1 day games. They'd probably like to play in the league, but the rest of the team obviously finds this time control too fast. There is only 1 division in the 1 day league yet when you look ing the open invites page you can see there are loads of players who play 1 day games. The leagues would be much better with this option, in my opinion.

    Nice snipe, i bet that took you a good hour to look all those big words up in the dictionary. Tell me, how many leagues is your Clan in? Mine has competed in two, the 7 and 14 day. The Clan plays about 5-10 challenges a week. My players only have so many hours in the day. Pull your head outta your ass and actually consider what this idea could do for the Leagues!

    most of the one day games in the open invites are from non-subs

    We have teams in three of the four leagues. We used to have a team in all four but the 1 day league is backsliding.

    And, despite the fact that both our clans have 20 members...

    You started the funkymovers 6 months before I started the Guttersnipes.

    You're 87th on the table. We're 51st, and 411 points ahead of you.

    We've finished 179 challenges, you've finished 70.

    Oh, and while I'm busy "pulling my head out my ass" let's have a look at your clan's performance in the league, in your completed games against the Guttersnipes in the current 7/14 league:

    Game 1599174; Game 1599652; Game 1599183; Game 1599661; Game 1599165; Game 1599643; Game 1599156; Game 1599634; Game 1599625; Game 1599138; Game 1599616

    Mmm... 11 games finished and you won ONE single game. I now understand why you would like to recruit outsiders for your league team, obviously you're too busy managing your clan like an absolute twit to notice that the problem here is not the leagues, it's you.
