Rounds 1 and 2 (2014-15)

Post by Christopher Kreuzer » Sun Nov 16, 2014 6:11 pm

Just checked the division 1 results and Barbican beat Wood Green! Did Wood Green have a weaker team than expected? In other results, really pleased to see Cambridge University 2 overcome a large rating disparity to win convincingly 6-2 against Anglian Avengers.

BTW, what was the pairing snafu that led to a statement and apology on the 4NCL website?

This is the new look Wood Green team with less cash to spend. I expect there to be a similar team in weekends to come. Can anyone, Cheadleton? mount a challenge to Guildford?
I don't really understand what happened with the pairings but I think the issue concerns which pools the Barbican teams should be in. Basically, should Barbican 1 be the top Barbican team, because well they are Barbican 1, or should Barbican 2 be the top Barbican team because of a quirky set of results (and some fine play) they finished ahead of Barbican 1 last year. I cannot see that anyone really cares, but it is a shame that the laegue couldn't make a decision and stick to it.

A decision was made and stuck with, however due to an error of the wrong pairings being published and the error not being noticed until late on, a decision had to be made whether to stick to the pairings published or the pairings that we wished to be used.

It was agreed the pairings published should change to the pairings that should've been published.

4NCL made a decision and stuck by it, however an error caused the pairings to have to be changed back.

Looks like Guildford didn't pull any punches with their squad selection. On the plus side, the lack of money at the top of the league does at least give more opportunities for the british players to play higher level competition without being squeezed out by mercenaries.

Thanks for the clarification. May I ask if the pairings published in error were just plain wrong, or were the alternative to the decision originally made (and then published in error before the change)? (I'm asking because I'm not sure if the incorrectly published pairings are still around on the website in some archive or not).

Essentially they put Barbican 1 where Barbican 2 should have been, and vice versa.
