    Hello LG Community,

    It has been brought to my attention that currently both FNP and SNP is being run poorly and sometimes not even running on a given night.

    I have spoken to @Tris10 and have decided to take over as the FNP & SNP Commissioner by helping run the weekend events (with help of course – more to follow below). We are looking to turn FNP and SNP into what it should’ve been from the start, a weekend of fun and excitement for all involved.

    The end goal is to have some sort of lined up events for the future and the community will enjoy them. There is something special being announced shortly that will hopefully gain the attention of some community members. Stay tuned for that!

    The goal I envision is to make sure those that are playing are enjoying the event. In doing so, start with some of the following such as:
    • Putting the signups for teams out sooner
    • Confirming captains and brackets on the site 2 hours before games begin
    • Possibly run longer events with more teams involved
    The community seems split on the clubs only or drafts only style weekends. I have put down some special event options below. You may also post any others for consideration. Please vote above on if you think these are interesting or lame:
    • Clubs Only
    • Drafts Only
    • 3’s Club
    • 3’s Draft
    • 3’s Arcade
    • Positional Restriction
      • Play a specific preset height and weight, along with a player type for all positions
    • Longer events
    • Double Elimination
    Again, these are just some things I had in mind. Each weekend after the conclusion of the event, we will throw up a poll on what you want to see possibly occur for the following weekend. Based on the results, we will go with that option.

    If you are interested in helping me out, there is a staff application below. Fill out the application and I will be looking to pick the best candidates to help. You won’t have to do much, but just be around as needed.

    I hope to make FNP and SNP an exciting time again,
    Shorty

    Same, no one really drafts people signing up individually. I'd just want to have fun and play with some new peeps!

    I vote mixed: option for premade teams and captains who draft from a random pool.

    Why limit people who want to join as a team and why limit people who want to play but don't have a team?

    Ack, there are people that want to play that never get drafted: why should I sign up anymore? Answer that question and maybe more individual people would sign up. I'd hate to say it, but I'm not the worst defenseman, but never being drafted in FNP kills it for me. Am I supposed to be popular to play FNP or does FNP not support non-well known/casual players... that might be why people in my position without name recognition never get to play.

    F' it, change my vote: if people can't play without being well known or have to be pro players then screw it. As much as I wanted to play apparently that can never occur. Even if I were rated the shitiest player to play the game apparently I can never play FNP /end rant I'm done

    @ShortyxLOSE What is your opinion on who should be able to play FNP? Or are some players suppose to be always ignored during a draft? That's the way I currently see things...

    Sadly, regardless of the response I won't be humbled since I see my self as a shitter anyway, but why should I sign up anymore for FNP?
