You will make it :)

I did.  Thanks for the kind words.  Glad to be done yet I can't wait for next year.

Please have a look at the rules. After round 6 only the top eight went into the quarter finals, so we have only 4 matches.

Not been on properly for a while due to computer issues

Will we be lucky enough to have another year of the LPL in 2019

Thanks

Good question Gordon. It takes some organising, and the last time out - despite the ever increasing forum membership - there was a much reduced field of participants (in numbers, though absolutely not in quality) and considerably less LAF members bothered to vote on the matches each week. All of which is somewhat disappointing and makes one wonder if it has perhaps run its course. I hope not. But let’s see what other people think and then we can decide if there’s enough interest to attempt an LPL13!  :)

If we don't have another one I'll be champion for life.


Can you live with that?  lol



(Sadly I won't be entering if there is one this year. There is just no way I could manage it yet, it was bloody hard enough when I was in good health.)

I'd like another one, kind of relieved it wasn't when it normally is as I'd never have been able to get teams painted, but now in a much better position time and painting-wise so pretty sure I'd enter. Quality of my photography notwithstanding!

Maybe we should scale down from 10 to fewer entries?

I'm up for it depending on the rules this year, I hated the knock out phase, and didn't even vote for those last few rounds, because while I'm happy to vote for a win,  I hate the idea to vote to remove someone from the contest. Also hated the compulsary theme last year, for me those are two good reasons not to join, otherwise I'll be happy to make the effort again

Maybe less people voted because they didn't like the new format - the knockout rounds? Or it could just be a reflection of the general trend online for forum activity to shrivel as other platforms are used? It would be interesting to see if the stats on the painting section followed general trends on the rest of the forum,  if they were inline with other traffic/activity.

Thanks Captain

I think the change of format might have had some impact (positive and negative) but possibly made it less exciting as the competition went on with fewer matches
I know when it comes to voting I always looked forward to Sunday morning irrespective of whether I was competing or not.  Last year I was a bit all over the place as I lost my father and had to sort everything out with regards to that
I can't talk for others but I have really enjoyed it over the years and know that you organizers put a lot of effort into making it happen (can't emphasis my level of thanks on this). Hopefully it hasn't run its course otherwise the one part of the hobby my wife approves of has been lost - then I'm in the deep doodah

Maybe a question to ask what people would like.  I know one of the big challenges is getting a set of 5 miniatures painted each week, photographed and sent in can be a challenge  (I know I've finished some very close to the wire even having my wife take a picture while I'm at work).  Possibly a competition that run every second week may create a new level of interest with entrants

I think I would be more likely to participate if it was more spread out. Two weeks between challenges sounds good. A bit more radical would be a challenge per month, running across pretty much the whole year.
