Since we're switching to the month-at-a-time-open model, I'm not going to be as heavy-handed on wrangling at the end of each month. It's going to be on the league at-large to keep each other accountable and keep games getting played, because the alternative is that if I DO police it, we now run the risk of having large swaths of games just get simmed. With as many as will now be open, resolve/reset is no longer a thing. I'm not going to close and re-open entire months, so my view right now is that we just play until either everybody has their games in for a given month or a sufficient number have completed their games that we can sim the rest and move on.
We have, effectively, two AI owners right now. kaliber said he didn't think he could keep up with the demands of the league and Miami gotta Miami. I don't, at this point, object to people playing their games against AI teams. I don't know how the rest of the league feels about that. It just feels like we're at the stage where, between the owners we're down and the realistic likelihood of recruiting either to fill those roles or any other attrition, people playing against AI teams is probably not something to get worked up over. Feel free to chime in. If the rest of the league is adamant against playing AI teams, I'll continue to sim those.
I'm not going to do specific subthreads for each series anymore. Not with this many series in play each period. So, again, the responsibility is on league members to look at their schedule, compare it with the list of owners below, and make your arrangements in the thread. I would ask that when you post looking for your partner, you use the team matchup (such as Los Angeles/Colorado) in the subject line so that your opponent can easily identify when you are looking to make arrangements.
Finally, even though this thread is up, please wait until you see an update from me to try to play your games. I'm in the 'reset' part of the resolve/reset cycle, and with something like 4 series per team involved here, this shit could take the rest of the day. Feel free to start making arrangements for your series, however; you can tell which they are because the game should be labeled either 'playable' (if you check after I've reset your series) or 'resolved' (if I haven't gotten to you yet).
You just won't be able to play until I've finished opening the month up. Also, the month's final series appears to be a four-gamer; two games this month and two next. All will be open, obviously, but make sure you look at the first two days of next month for those games when you're finishing that series.
