You won the Division !! Two more points from Ulysisgrunt and you would have come second :-)

Great job ! Well played.

Hi Pete,
I remember LoEG (when my memory does not fail me) and the enforced list change worked fine.
That said I do not think it is in anyway a necessary rule and I agree with Morbio; For those who have played a bit the required new list does not matter and for those who are new it might be off-putting to have to leave the comfort blanket of the familiar - I know some who are new feel happier continuing to learn with what they know.
So as I see it there is a risk of discouraging some newer player entrants, it will require extra administration and potentially/inevitably some carping will arise. Your current system works and your seeding system means a likely second or third choice if a player is seeded high so don't change it.

As a PS
However if the poll is inconclusive/equally split how about applying the rule for those in Divs A and B as long as they remain in Divs A and/or B?

I don't know if it might help over time limit, but we're going on with the matches and the situation now is:
50 to 25 and 33 to 25, still by my side

New players in their first season will be completely unaffected by this ruling as they can choose exactly what they like. Players will only be affected in their second season onwards when the army(ies) they used in their first season will not be available to them. The other three armies they chose in their selections but did not get allocated to them can be chosen again. So it would be a very mild restriction indeed. It doesn't look like it is going to gain enough support in the poll. One of the things I will do if the proposal is defeated is to designate the Diadochi armies (excluding the latest Seleucid and Ptolemaic armies) as coming from one "nation". So players will only be able to choose one army from this group, just like any other nation. As we agreed in a previous poll certain "nations" that have 6 or more armies in one section of the tournament will be allowed two armies in a division instead of one. The Diadochi group will be granted this exemption.

I don't think there are many votes to come in now so I don't see a 50/50 split likely, although I do like the idea as a Plan B. I am very surprised (not in a good way) at the result of this poll.

Pete I think there are a lot of players that did not play the earlier digital leagues and that has influenced the vote. I think if you did the vote again in a few seasons time the vote will be what you expected. Will you have a poll to see if it will be introduced in Div A and B?

No, I don't think so. I am not convinced that the result would be any different.
