LL80: LearnedLeague

Thanks to the wonderful world of alphabetizing, I start the season in 18th place, better than the 20th place I finished LL79. Looking forward to February 20th, as always.

Top 2 from C Div. 2 were up for promotion to B. I just noticed I'm bumped up to Prairie B also although I finished in 3rd in my group last season. It's much harder to sneak by with my 3 or 4 right in that group.

After being a ronin for a few seasons, I decided to go home to (C) Taiga (Div 1) for what may be my final season, depending on how I feel after LL80. I've been in C for 12 consecutive seasons (not counting LL78, which I sat out) and it's starting to feel a bit stale. Part of me would like to try B some time even if I'm in over my head, but the outcome I think I'm rooting for is to retire from LL without ever having been relegated.

I got the "Welcome to A" letter. This'll be short-lived.

I’m in Piedmont C Div 1 this season. First time as a C Rundler. :shock: (I spent most of last season in 1st in my rundle, then had a late-season slump but miraculously ended up in 3rd on the very last match day after dropping out of the promotion zone.)

After 10 seasons in A Continental I'm back in B Cont for a fifth stint in B, none of which so far has lasted longer than two seasons. I recognize a couple branchies and the Hbomb--any other boardies in there?

Am I too late to join a boardie private rundle? If not, let me know via PM or email: bpenrose [a] gmail-dot-com.

LL80 starts the same day as the tournament. Best of luck to everyone.

Unfortunately, there was nothing organized before the deadline on the 14th (at least that I was aware). Perhaps we need to be better organized for LL81.

I'm back for another season in my comfort zone, Horizon B. Good luck to all boardies! I have already submitted Match Day 1, as Wednesday will be incredibly busy for me. Last season I strategically used my alloted ten days of advanced access on days when I knew I would have very little time to ponder LL questions. I'm going to do it again this season and see if I have another "above average" TCA total.

I avoid submitting earlier than mid-morning on match day, except when absolutely necessary, for reasons I'm going to resist the urge to rehash.

I'm slightly concerned about committing my first-ever forfeit this season because I'm just not feeling that into it.

Very keen on not staying in A Taiga for too long. A makes me jumpy.

Tell me about it.

Also, really not liking the board redesign.

The only change I can see if moving message board posts off the main page. Was there some other change?

Good luck on the season, everyone!
