    There's always the option to concede a game and post the result immediately.

    Can this not be rectified with an online AREA ASL rating system? where you can access their RATING across all levels? There was a Ladder system years ago that used points and was actually fun. Unless you get the one guy who won't play you in fear of losing too many points...to a lesser ASLer.

    Surely, someone out there can code a webpage for this? Just like Roar?
    Or even tie it into Roar, basing the points gained on the difficulty of the game...i.e. playing the crappy (20% winrate) of a side yielding more potential points.

    please let me know scenario and sides, then - as first player posting here in the forum the complete result - you win a free game vs the TD (scenario to decide)

    The problem is that even the ""perfect" rating system is useless if your goal is NOT rate player and limit the access to the superior level to the best skilled players, but instead is mostly avoid that inconstant/not motivated/not suited for VASL/ too busy to play live via internet people occupy spots just for being cancelled before the tournament ends. No rating system can predict the approach to VASLeague, just an entry level can give some informations: who is motivated enough to play and win four or five games against people of all kinds and levels in any time zone will probably be suited to reach the higher VASLeague levels.

    Will and I played this out on three straight evenings. It was see-saw at first, but my Japanese were able to get lucky with snipers and DC heroes and were able to take both hills on turn 6 for the win. Thanks to Will for a good game and I look forward to a potential rematch at WO!!

    well, as first player in 2018 to public here the full report of the game (opponents, sides, and result) you win a free play vs the TD. :cool:
    if you agree I'll submit you a small group of scenarios from which you will pick one, deciding also the side.

    To the winner goes the spoils so Damon is going to be your opponent. Feel free to avenge me. Thanks for running the league.

    Ok, but the point of this new tradition is to give an incentive to post here and soon the full report of the game no matter who wins. I'll challenge Damon then, as first to post.

    Andy and I are playing ASL131 The Penetration of Rostov, with me as the German attacker. We are on turn 4, and the tension is rising.

    I've tried getting in touch with my opponent in the Second Line League, but so far, no reply. Just an FYI.

    Damon Norko l and I finished a VASL game of FrF 87 Mormal Forest to begin the new tradition of the celebrating new season game between the TD and the first player to post his result here in the forum. Game went down to the last ad Fire PH phase. My Germans never got a success in CC/melee failings >5 times attacks at 2/1 or 3/1. At the end the German were still in the position to win but a 2 IFT attack (no DRM) pinned the 838 carrying the FT when he was just to burn the last defender of the last objective.
    First time I play with Damon, an opponent I recommend if you want a relaxed game.
