    Time for a change?

    Since now the Cup format change has been in effect now in its 6th season of what I branded the RR Cup. Many managers now have accepted the format change and moved on. Including ourselves to be fair but still preferred the old cup.

    I feel that the stage names for the Cup now for the earlier stages like "Preliminary, Qualifying and Playoff" now need to be renamed "1st,2nd and 3rd Round" since the early stages of the cup are competitive just as much as the later stages are.

    Preliminary,Qualifying and Playoff made more sense under the old format when we had matches of L15 vs L2 for example. Now its similar quality all around and there aren't any Preliminary,Qualifying or Playoff matches anymore.

    Anyone Agree?

    Nothing worse than saying your out the cup in the Preliminaries as in the old format I used to progress until I lost against a "Giant" and once you risen through the levels the Preliminaries were against easy teams.
