Dogdayboy100% will admit that the original ruling for roster move ups (1006.5) reads like garbage, as the admins and I have since discussed. However, you left out part of the ticket specifically stating what rule we generally go by when approaching these situations.
There is a clear contradiction in the rules that I won't deny, it's confusing upfront and we are looking into removing 1006.5 entirely as 1006.3.3 covers our general approach in better detail. Now for why this team is allowed to play AM is out of my domain as I have no idea about the relative skill of the players. But honestly if there is anyone I trust to make correct decisions about div placements/restrictions or really anything league related it is Camper. I assure you it wasn't a decision made hastily or without deliberation.
We are going to miss out on stuff, the admin team is not perfect, and frankly, if I had the time to go through all the rules and think of every possible scenario they could apply, and change them accordingly, I would. We do genuinely make changes and adjustments to rules when we come upon situations like this where there are clear contradictions or things that aren't in line with how we currently operate. What I'm trying to say is that these situations are appreciated by the admin team because we don't exactly have the time to refine every rule in the best way we can.
TFTV is a meaningful platform to talk about issues and kick admins in the ass for being stupid or having contradictory rules. IMO, and people are free to disagree, you posted this thread mid-convo with admins, I feel like it's a bit unfair to post out-of-context without getting a proper/full response from us. I think we try and be genuine and as thorough as we can, which is why threads like this that more or less don't give 100% context and immediately accuse admins of being corrupt undermines both admin longevity/tolerance and overarching community opinion about RGL admin efficiency. I will never be able to control when/what people post, but I'm hoping that in the future people will continue to use the ticket system to it's fullest extent while also considering that admins may not be able to clarify rules in the way that you would like them to, and attempt to further discuss contradictions without making accusations. If further discussion leads nowhere, post away.
He says the main take away is that it's ultimately up to his discretion but there is also a conflict of interest considering he was a former teammate.
