    Hello everyone,

    For those of you who don't know me I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am phillyfan765 or Jake and I am the deputy commissioner for LGFA in both xbox and playstation. I am taking this time to post this for all of you to give you an update on the state of LGFA PSN. I want to first thank everyone who has stuck around for the past two seasons. On behalf of Brisan and myself I wanted to say thank you. We know that there were some bumps in the road last season and we are going to do everything we can to fix them. Which brings me to the purpose of this posting. Starting today LGFA PSN begins a new chapter. I am going to outline some of the changes we are going to have coming to the league starting with season 3. So with that in mind lets get into some of the major changes.

    New Staff:

    We have decided to completely clear house and bring in new staff to help run the psn side of things. The new breakdown is as follows:

    @Brisan66 - Commissioner
    @phillyfan765 - Deputy Commissioner
    @Jlm1410 - Playstation League Director
    3 New BoGs

    The first thing you will notice is that we have added the title of league director. The league director is part of commissioner staff and is a new role we are really excited about. The second thing you will notice is that Brisan and myself are going to be taking a more hands on approach with PSN. Specifically I will be dedicating most of my time to working with JLM to help bring a successful league to PSN.

    New League Format:

    With a new staff comes a new direction. After much discussion we have decided to change the league over to using MLS Teams. Now this isn't just jersey changes this is a format change. The big things you need to know:

    1. Their will be a regular season. This will be followed by a playoff format to determine the league champions

    2. We will be running the US open cup to go along with the regular season

    (I hope to share more on this in the coming days)

    League Reset:

    Because of all the changes we are making and after discussion with JLM and Brisan we have decided that we will be hitting the reset button on the league. What this means is that all of our owners will start with blank teams and just a GM and an AGM. The reason we are doing this is to give all of our owners and players the chance to start season 3 on equal footing. Once this is done all players will have to resign up for the league to be eligible for bidding.

    Timetable:

    We just added a new tab at the top of the page called calendar. All league timeline posts will be put there. We will be fast tracking the league to get the next season started asap please look on that calendar for updates to the timeline.

    On behalf of all the LGFA psn staff we look forward to building this league with you from the ground up and working to ensure that everyone has a great experience while playing here.

    It's the better way considering people just didn't care near the end of the season

    Great post! Have optimism this may actually work out after all with the needed support/direction from the top.

    Please keep some later game times on some nights like season 2 :)
