Looks like the league is full! I'm going to set a draft deadline for Tuesday 27th at midday BST. Don't know why I chose then but it's as good a time as any and it gives people the long weekend to pick your squad. If anyone really needs more time I can change it a bit if you can give me enough notice, just reply to me in this thread.

I'll use the default scoring system because it lets you change it if you wanted to but I don't really want to mess it all up because I have no clue. Here's a decent guide to stuff!

Good luck!

EDIT: turns out you can't set the time, just the date. It says 8.45 pm for me and I'm guessing that's BST so that would be 12.45pm west coast and 3.45pm east...I think!?

EDIT 2: So I think you have to draft live at the same time. Maybe you can't choose the same players as the other teams? In this case it's probably best to set it for a weekend day right? I've changed it to Sunday 25th at 8.45.

I thought I'd tag you in to let you know I started a league up, just in case you haven't found one yet! I'll set a draft date when it starts to fill up a bit. There's 2 out of 10 so far so plenty of spots.

Yeah I'd be up for a league as I doubt I've got enough committed people on my friends list! I'd be happy to prop it up from the bottom, as I have no idea really how it's going to work.

@pulledabrad: Online play is still free on PS3 and the vita! I think they said it always will be.

Nooooooooo I missed it! Why do we even have to go to work anyway. :-(

I saw brad's argument as being that in CoD type games the only influence you can have on your team is the shooting and killing of dudes. Even in domination modes you will have to be shootings guys to attack or defend a point.

Other games like TF2 and PvZ:GW have ways to still contribute if your not all that good at shooting via healing, or being a distraction as a tank or by completing more involved objectives.

Co-operation and teamwork can work across either so that's neither a positive or a negative thing for either side.

I think he is influenced by DOTA 2 where you can help your team in countless ways that aren't just getting kills. Maybe I agree with him because I play Dota too, but it is just inherently more interesting, as the shooting people is still in all the games which have more variety in the ways you can contribute to the team anyway.

I think maybe Jeff saw it as an attack on something he likes and he very aggressively defends the things he likes.

This is the first time I've gotten to Olmec, and I even have the necronomicon, visited the city of gold and actually got passed 4-1 for the first time. I'll be quite upset if I literally just have to kill myself!
