I ultimately agree with lee, but I'm unfussed.

I have posted on the other thread about lifting race limits.

I think out of this idea and the race limit restriction lift i think after sleeping on it I would lift the race restriction and leave retired teams retired.

It's like we're twins! :lots of love: I'm also thinking that the retired teams should stay retired. I can't think of a non-competitive reason for someone to bring a team back.

I don't think they should be allowed back.
You could perhaps have a veterans cup where old/retired teams could be dusted off for some nostalgic value but the league is not the place for them.
Plus if I bring Bo back no one else will ever win the league again...

Bringing back retired teams is as good an idea as George Lucas sitting around and then suddenly thinking 'I know, let's make a 4th Indiana Jones movie', retired teams are retired for a reason. Lifting the cap on teams is a different story, maybe opening it up to 3 slots per race would work and encourage more coaches back. At the end of the day, if it promotes a strong healthy league whats the harm?

Nope. Keep 'em out. If you want to ply a retired team look up the stats and play a friendly with someone - the whole point of a league is about continuity and progression and that means commitment. You want a legacy, then turn up, play your games and keep it going season after season after season. You want a change of flavour, then play a different team outside the league, or in tournaments, or start over with the one you want (if it becomes available).

As for the team limitations - priority of choice should be given to those coaches who've been participating in the league the longest: If you couldn't play the team you wanted last Season and it becomes available, then you get to bid for the spot or opt to keep the interim team going. Fair enough to me. If the race you want isn't available and you don't want to play any other, then you're not really bothered about playing the game are you? (And anyone who wnat to play will find a team to play)

Plus, what about all those bounties on players who dropped out with retired teams huh? ;)

It's like we're twins! :shock: father and son more like :lots of love: :lots of love:

Veterens cup, great idea. I have thought about that before as well.

How about hall of fame, dead players on a team facing current champions or current top players.

race restrictions do not apply so undead can play on the same team as skaven etc....

Pop a poll on the front page about retired teams and see where it goes.......................................

hey guys, just read through this post. would I be interested in a Furballs return? possibly but I have to say, I would probably prefer to start it again. as many know the team was relatively successful but it was far from perfect. would I come back and play Necro again? in a heartbeat! unfortunately at a point I was in need of money the team had to go so I would be starting a fresh. I would sell all my current teams in a effort to get together a new team. possible but likelihood of managing that before the new season starts is pretty slim. ill certainly look into it tho :)

that's not to say that I am against the idea, I would be all for it if it would encourage players to come back.
