New League Leadership....

For some a monthly donation, for others, it rubs the lotion on the skin.

I don't mind trying the seeding for next round being based on total score rather than previous round. Nice thing with ballers is that people seemed fairly open to trying some new formats or other options; like the card game (forget the name?).

Regarding software: internet is always an issue. I know for myself I don't always have coverage at everyone's place. Another option is that I could just write some bracketing software quick for ballers to be exactly how we needed it. I doubt it'd take THAT long, but it'd be fairly "stupid"; basically emulating what we do on paper. But, the nice thing is that it'd auto calculate the scores for everyone; so being able to hit a button and have a list of ranks would be nice rather than hand counting everyone. Also auto-placement of next round would be nice. I could also throw in an option on how to base the next round, either from previous round rank or overall total score.

Now you're just making work for yourself.

Is there really anybody that hosts that doesn't have WIFI that could be used? Are there seriously people who live without viable internet access anymore?

Mark's last month. His new place has basically no coverage and his ISP went through a satellite (I think? Hopefully remembering that correct). Either way, wifi was basically no go.

I also don't mind the work. There does looks to be a jQuery tournament bracket package I could leverage. It'd at least give us exactly what we wanted.

There were actually 3 or 4 places where this was the case. If it werent ISP lacking, it was wifi lacking based on physical location lacking local wifi.

Worrying about internet access was really the only reason I was using paper. I hate writing all that crap down.

Ballers is super flexible, which is why I like it. No two league nights have to be the same, which makes it fun too. I just wish I could give it the time it deserves.

It wasnt the kid activities making it tough, as much as it is the kid activities and having a wife that works every weekend.

I am glad Jay is taking it on. It really is my favorite non-league, league. I will definitely make an appearance or two when make singles bank starts running low.... Lol

You could always just use the software if Internet is available, and don't if it's not. The software is really only a time saver, although I agree groupings based on overall score are attractive to me, cause I always have a little dread when I have one good game. :)

Check out the feature list before you think about writing an app... I made a test tournament earlier and it has support for pulling someone out if they leave early, pulling a broken table out (and adding new ones), "re-rolling" the draws, a feature to optionally try to keep people from playing the same table repeatedly, and a bunch of other stuff. The happy path is pretty straight forward, but all those edge cases when Stuff Goes Wrong is where all the coding work is.
