as was announced in Discord earlier this month, the BWCL Season 53 had to be postponed due to a variety of reasons.
As all of us grow older our time becomes a precious resource, that needs to be managed carefully. It’s hard to come by active personnel to organize a league as big as BWCL is, at least if you want to provide a decent place to play that lives up to the expectations. In the past three years, ever since BWCL was rebooted, many of our administrators left, only few stayed and sailed the ship through the sea.
After boosting this league from mere 14 Clans and two divisions to more than 30 teams in six divisions, ICCup.Face decided to retire. We wish him the best of luck for his future endeavours. Without him BWCL wouldn’t be nearly as big as it is now.
Also, our infrastructure needed some care. We needed to update the Google Drive system we used in the past to maintain the grid. Even though Face did supply us with a more than sound system, it didn’t transfer too well. We’re currently replacing some functions and testing the result.
Thankfully the majority of our staff is German, so we added wörk to the wörk, because wörk is life, or as the saying goes “Ein Lauf ist gut, zwei Einläufe beruhigen dann aber auch jeden”: We are also doing some rule updates and procedural updates.
Yet, there are also “good” news. After some hiatus broodwar.de parted from ingame after some years and now turned into broodwar.net - a forum for the German speaking brood war die hards. We’re planning on moving closer to our birth place in the future with distant plans of reactivating BWCL.de. Aehre dem Klan.
This is the reason why we’re going to publish big announcements here first. Keep an eye on this forum! (You’ll be linked in Discord either way)
Anyway, we couldn’t do this without any of you playing in this league. Yet, we have to ask some more commitment: We desperately need admins. Apply to Cele (Cele#6194) in Discord (online during evenings CET) or write a short mail to bwclde[at]googlemail.com.
