    Two teams. Spartan & Empire.

    I can only comment on these two because I can see the discussions within the group chats.

    Admins @Kani

    Is there any chance you can do a poll to see what the 'ANY's thought?

    @Kani can you create an avpl thread to move this discussion out of 5v5.

    This post got me thinking. The most fucked up thing about clubs this year is the stamina issue. With a community of over 5000 strong, surely we can make enough noise to get other people from around the world who feel the same way involved.
    @Kani plus other guys in the know, is there somewhere we can all flood and let them know our thoughts?
    Think about it, do we as a community risk another year of shit clubs without even trying to fix the issue by voicing our concerns?

    I'm going to speak directly to the EA Live Producer regarding the broken VP builds, stamina, and also some other improvements that could be made, such as the option to have ET and penalties in Pro Clubs friendlies. I'm also going to be querying him about the Pro Clubs app to see if it's possible to add some more stats (interceptions etc.) and also to see if we can start getting friendly matches tracked. It's worth a shot.
    Happy for you to start up a poll if you'd like.

    Dont bring up stamina. Its not stamina thats the problem. Its the fact that you can have 96 stamina as 6'7 stocky or whatever.

    Nerfing stamina would be bad for the game. Its just the builds. They need to change according to height and weight again. But the whole idea of never stopping growth is cool. As is having higher stats. Just shouldnt be all rounded. A st should never have 99 tackling. Needs to change based on position as it used to

    Got sidetracked by the discussion that was happening today, but the FIFA Fives Pro League Finals fixtures have been available since this morning:

    PS4 Pro League Finals
    Xbox Pro League Finals

    The PS4 Challenger League promotion playoff bracket will be posted once all remaining regular season matches have been completed.

    For those who aren't too familiar with the double elimination format:
    You basically get two chances. If you lose in the upper bracket, you drop down to the lower bracket. If you lose in the lower bracket, you're out of the finals. The grand finalists who qualify from the lower bracket have to win two fixtures, whereas the upper bracket grand finalists only have to win once.

    ---

    AVPL Season 8 registrations and PS4 AVPL Division 1 qualifiers will be held during the FIFA Fives Pro League Finals. (Div 1 qualifiers most likely on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays)

    More information to come over the next few days.

    @Kani - With the new 5v5 finals structure (brackets), I get why this would work well for a randomly drawn H2H tournament but for a finals of a laddered season, what advantage is there for a team finishing 1st as opposed to 8th? From what I can tell, there is none (other than 1st playing 8th which is a very insignificant advantage)?

    I've actually always thought the advantage of finishing top 2 in AVPL was too big (going straight to a prel final) but I think this final's structure is the other extreme. Can you share your thoughts why you've done it this way?

    Edit: I put this in the wrong thread sorry.

    League play/groups followed by double elimination finals is quite common in eSports. The league was significantly short, not even a month long. The finals are almost the same length. We see it as a two part competition rather than just a league followed by finals.

    You said so yourself, 1v8 is an insignificant advantage, and that's very true because all 8 teams are fairly equal in a comp where there are almost no predetermined advantages (numbers, GK, AI). The top 6 are only separated by 5 points, compared to 19 points in the last AVPL season. It wouldn't make sense to give the top 2/3/whatever such a significant advantage when they're all pretty much on the same level.

    It is now the only thing that the AFL does well. No doubt that will change it in a few years and the whole comp will be a joke.

    Ok thanks. IMO for a team to finish 8th and get a double chance exactly the same as 1st place, I simply don't agree with it. Hopefully there's better options for a finals structure in future if others also feel the same way?

    Also, can the admin team disclose the finals structures at the start of the season? We were playing our final 2 rounds with no knowledge of if there was an advantage for finishing top 2 or where we'd prefer to finish, etc.

    The finals format was in the info section of the competition right from when it was announced:

    Finals Format
    • 8 team double elimination bracket. (1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5)
    • Matches are played over two legs. (aggregate)

    Fair enough then. I must have missed it then as I thought it just said "double elimination finals" or something like that which our team weren't sure of what that meant anyway. I may have misread it then. Apologies.

    It definitely needs to be changed for future iMO. Needs to have reward for top two. Yes top 8 was close in points but that means top two played well to get there.
