PDL NEWSFLASH

Postby mjparrett » 19 Jul 2018, 12:20

Hi all. Apologies for my lack of admin (again!) recently. Home life (and the World Cup!) and I've barely been managing to play my own games let alone sort anything else out.

1. Tables updated. Congrats to our new PDL 1 leader
2. AAR started for the latest PDL 1 game. Still 2 games left to run though in round 3!
3. Round 4 games will be set up some point next week. Just trying to sort out the final fixtures with all the replacements going on.

Thank you for your patience. Message ends.

Quick post in praise of PDL & the rather remarkable achievement Mike has put together. Despite playing less Dip than in years past, I’m already looking forward to my annual Dip break (during which I wait until New Year before returning to the battlefield). However I find myself in keen anticipation of the last round of PDL to sign off a fun 2018 season.

The quality of play (with rare exception) has been excellent in the first 3 rounds & bitching kept to a more reasonable level compared to many games. The league seems to have ever tougher competition waiting to challenge diplomatic skills in the coming round (having hopefully weeded out most of the quitters).

I dared to hope PDL would be this good when I signed up, but find myself more than pleasantly surprised. Thanks all, especially our esteemed leader.

Whilst sympathising with the never ending “replacements” issues, I’m sure looking forward to item 3. Is it “some point next week” yet? Question ends.

I'm still going through my list of replacements. It is looking all the more like PDL 3 will be no more. 2 have quit PDL 1, 1 has left PDL 2, and a whopping 4 people have dropped out from the lowest league (this all since round 3 began). People are being shuffled up the leagues to keep PDL 1 & 2 going (invites very soon I promise!), but it's looking like PDL 3 will be disbanded with those people becoming the reserves/promotion candidates for PDL 2 relegations.

More soon
