Post Regular weekly head to heads, all clans/communities welcome.
First off apologies for using the 55's site as my soap box. ;)

I know we've talked about it briefly over the past few weeks but as there seems to be a decent amount of 'traffic' from other clans and communities posted in here, how about we try and push to get some regular versus matches for the coming weeks and months sorted.

From a personal point of view I need something to revive my flagging interest in MW3 as I don't really have a 'need' to play at the moment because I'm no longer after XP I therefore need a new challenge and improving tic tacs is usually the ideal tonic.

I think its maybe time to push the league.

I think everyone is in the same boat regards MW3 .... but as I say to the boyz here .... "you get out of it what you put into it".

The league of old created a real buzz. My only concern is getting enough clans/squads involved. Also do we split the regions or just rely on our "Home" "Away" system to provide the leveller.

This is where I'm more than happy to follow your lead mate, over at O&R we've only ever played in-house matches so not had to think about time zones etc.

I know most of the regulars I play alongside struggle to play at times other than after 9 or 10pm UK time, so perhaps having two tiers maybe safer, but options available to challenge across the pond for those that can make it.

OK well its been a while ..... but lets start small and build back up.

I propose:

Region 1 League 1:
4 Squads (1 squad/Clan)

Region 2 League 2:
4 Squads (1 squad/Clan)

We play in respective leagues home and away against your 3 opponent clans.

At the end of the league then we play-off against your counterpart in the other Regions leagues.

So basically play for the title in your region and then between both regions.

You thinking 4 or 6 person teams?

Oh and I'll apologize in advance for the often and many stupid questions that are likely to be popping up in this thread ;)

Normally we always specified a 6 man team with subs but I am thinking more flexibility this time. I mean I know OnR and The 55's would easily be able to field 6 but it is never gauranteed that others would so perhaps we should go with however many make it in the lowest squad. So for example if we have 6 and you guys only had 5, we would drop one.

I of course would like this to be by exception rather than the norm. 6 man Sqauds are by far my preference.

6 is as you say fine with us and I'll explain that if the need arises we'll drop players to the opponents numbers if required, with a guarantee that any player that steps down is first choice for the next match.

Time to start practicing my dieing with style acting skills then Steel ;)

I missed the original league era so would be really good to revive it.

I'll post up on the Hope site about it too.
Edit - posted this on their site.

Hey girls.
First of all, I wasn't quite sure where to post this so if mods want to move it to a more appropriate section then please do so.
A little before I joined the 55's which was nearly 4 years ago, they used to operate a thing called The 55's League.
It was one of the first large scale clan vs clan league set-up in the early days of Cod 4.
It consisted of many of the well known original clans from back in the old days of the Infinity Ward Forum era. Some if these included Americas Most Wanted (AMW) and the Canadians (CDN).
we are currently trying to resurrect The 55's League and would very much like your clan to be part of it. We are co arranging this alongside Old & Rubbish (O&R) clan. We also in talks with some other clans we have ties with.
Details still need to confirmed but we will basically have two leagues running - 1 R1 which is America and Canada
- 2 R2 which is the UK and the rest of Europe
Games will be played in the fashion of our upcoming friendly. R1 winner wouldthen eventually play the R2 winners
So how about Hope.
Fancy making history and helping us revive The 55's League?

I was going to suggest the ladies of HoPe too Mark so that's saved me a posting :handgestures-salute:

I'll message Satsuma from the Hog of War, they are tied up with BF3 quite a lot these days but it won't do any harm asking. We used to play in the olden days of CoD4 against them, also an easy going bunch with the right attitudes.

Jenxy at Hope suggested a couple of clans they have got on very well with.
They are Gamer Dads Live and Gamingoldies.
Would you like me to invite them to join our League?
Obviously not met them personally yet but going by Hope's recommendation and a quick look at their sites I reckon they would make worthy additions to our League.
