History lesson for everyone.
The initial wfb leagues were good where we had a round robin league. However they took a lot of time, and people quickly got bored of playing with one list. We added in jokers, divisions, and playoffs to spice it up, but availability and commitment were always the main problem.
The Elo was a new way of keeping the league's going, and made sense to allow players to use different lists and games.it didn't matter what scenario or points you played it could be incorporated. However with no drive behind it in wfb, and I would so forgetfulness not laziness in w40k, it has fallen off it's aim a bit. I think this is a Tuesday night thing where you only think about the game on Tuesday, then you are thinking about next week.
Knockout cups work as long as the commitment is there. It can also free up the other weeks for other games. The 40k one has been the most successful, with Bloodbowl failing to reach it's playoffs stage.
I think the knockout comps will work as long as you can get the commitment. Day events seem popular at the moment so keep those going. Club campaigns do not work with more than a few players. It sounds cool, but they will never get finished or get forgotten about.
Anyway lessons learned over. Keep up the good work committee.
