DRR is a true and fair AC. I understand that with the new system, some lower teams could attain higher places easier but it would not be fair. Neither it is fair for those who work hard to get a dull old medal and those who freeloads but pick teams at the last moment to get lovely trophies. You solved that problem beautifully last year and congratulations for that.
But what you are doing now isn't being fair. As a team, the original scoring /is/ fair even if it isn't fair to the particular individual as they had worked hard for their team (which is why I like the ACVI trophy idea). And teams like FL, who is starting to taste the fruits of our garden, our years of care shows signs of ripening, we are trying to prove ourselves... and it's just.isnt.fair.
The brackets may give us the chance we needed to win but faeries are fighters. We don't just want to win but to emerge victorious. We don't simply play but we fight for our team. We don't just want to be content but to be proud of our efforts. We don't just want to have fun but we want to have satisfaction.
When you give this kind of 'surprises' just as we're starting to soar, you cut off our wings and made us walk our way to the stars. We're unbreakable, we'll find our way to leap from cloud to cloud if we must, but it doesn't mean we are supporting the new format and all. We hope you shall reconsider your decisions, though from your history, we're not hoping much...
When I first knew about the change, I launched myself into a long rant on the AC board. It's far more impolite and I am sorry about it but this is the real feedback, straight from my heart and I hope you shall take the time to read it:
WE HAVE HOPES THIS YEAR PLENTY OF HOPES OF FAERIELAND RISING AND DRR IS A TRUE FAIR AC WHERE WE REALLY KNOW WHO DOES BEST AND WE HAVE HOPES OF PROVING OURSELVES AND WE ARE GOING TO TRY IT AND NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW YOU HAVE RUIN OUR HOPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE WANT TO PROVE OURSELVES! WE DESERVE OUR BREAK! WE WE ARGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!
I FEEL LIKE LEA I WANT TO THROW THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF EXPLODING MUFFINS! HOW DARE YOU HOW DARE YOU HOW DARE YOU
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I WONT STOP HERE. I WOULD STILL FIGHT FOR MY TEAM FOR FLUFFIANS ARE UNBREAKABLE BUT I WANT YOU GUYS TO CONTEMPLATE ON YOUR DECISIONS (WHICH I KNOW YOU WONT ANYWAY) AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING
YOU SHOULD TELL US EARLIER! WE HAD MADE ADJUSTMENTS TO OUR STRATEGIES! WE HAD PLANNED FOR MONTHS! WE HAD BEEN EAGER TO COME BACK! WE WANTED TO PROVE OURSELVES! WE WANTED TO SHOW THAT WE FAERIES CAN DO IT! AND WE WANT TO TRY OUR BEST TO PROVE IT! AND IA WE CAN DO IT AND SO WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?
IS NYYB NOT ENOUGH?
(a girl said: "Put us in a bracker with KL, MI, MT, AL, LD and we might have a chance" to which I answered:)
GET A CHANCE? GET A CHANCE? THAT IS NOT PROVING OURSELVES, MARIEKE... I WANT TO PROVE! NOT JUST TO WIN BUT TO EMERGE VICTORIOUS! I DONT JUST WANT TO PLAY BUT TO FIGHT! I DONT JUST WANT TO BE CONTENT BUT TO BE PROUD! I DONT JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN BUT TO WORK!
I AM ANGRY AND I SHALL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER FORGET THIS. I WILL OF COURSE COME FOR AC AND I WILL TRY ALL I COULD FOR FAERIELAND BUT YOU RUIN OUR HOPES OF SUCCEEDING. WINNING CAN BE LABELLED AS LUCK BUT VICTORY EARNS YOU RESPECT AND HONOUR.
AND FOR WHAT YOU DID, YOU LOST YOUR RESPECT AND HONOUR, TNT.
I WOULD NEVER FORGET AND EVEN IF ITS JUST ONE ME, I AM A FLUFFIAN, A FEARLESS FIGHTER!!!
I am writing on my own free-will as I had happen to pwn the board. I am not representing Team Faerieland or FLUFFians as a whole for there may be those who do not share my views on this revamped scheme but I represent the hundreds of fearless fighters from just any team and I hope for once you shall learn to be compassionate and give us AC players more consideration and respect
