PDL Newsletter. Read all about it...

Postby mjparrett » 27 Apr 2018, 14:13

Hi all. Don't get excited. It's not really a Newsletter. I don't think we are quite there yet....

Just some info for you all though.

The PDL Round 2 is still going with a handful of matches drawing close. The lower leagues have some potential solos on the go. Is this riskier play? Or poorer play that the remaining players are unable to prevent the solo?

A PDL "survey" was sent to you all. The replies have been... well... sparse. About 25%. Hopefully a few more of you reply this weekend, but I'll be publishing the results over the coming weekend. Interesting reading.

And the PDL 3 games have been created! Exciting times. Invites will be sent out over the weekend, so keep your eyes peeled on that good ol' inbox of yours.

Cheers peeps
M

OK, What’s up with these Sailing Boats & Cannons? Executive privilege is being exercised without a vote on that one :)

Haha I wondered if anyone would notice/comment. Decided to throw some different icons in for this round. Outrageous!

First the bogus scoring and relegations and now this? I quit.

JK. Also I don't think those things are bogus just think they could be better.

Oh Mike

You know I don't cope with change, lol.

Just promise me you'll never make it those round star and anchor badges (I hate them), the dabbing, giant zombie men or worse still, the comedy dinos n fish.

Why do I get the impression GPD that whatever Pootle hated the most would be your favourite?! :)

Anyway people. 1 little icon change and that's all I hear about? Next round will be played on the old school map and you'll all suffer!

NOT THE ETCH-A-SKETCH ANGULAR MONSTROSITY

And Mike (between the two of us) it's just because he knows I'm about to overtake him in the rankings war....... ;)

I will abscond, I promise! I have for years avoided that travesty & promised myself never to endure the ugly map.
I’ll lobby Super_Dipsy to have it removed if necessary (as it should have been years ago!)
