This upcoming season of the Elite League we will be implementing Preliminary Seedings. This is a process in which we (the league council) give a rough estimate of seedings and, based upon feedback and further transfer activity, are able to move teams around.

The deadline for changes to impact final seedings is 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday, 30th November 2018. Until then, if you're unhappy with your placement and/or wish to debate issues, you can:
- Explain to the Elite League council why you believe your team has been seeded in the wrong division based upon team skill.
- Make adjustments to your team in the form of transfers and player registrations, providing they receive the consent of the council as a whole (not one single member).

Just to reiterate - all transfers and registrations from the end of team signup deadline and the end deadline for transfers must be approved by the council. Council are going to ensure that, therefore, nobody is leaving a team and then joining the same team again.

Within approximately 48 hours of the preliminary seeding changes deadline, we will announce the final seedings if needed. If, however, no valid arguments to change seedings come forward, these preliminary seedings will become the final seedings.

Council will, if any changes occur, attempt to inform people as soon as possible both directly to the teams, and within this thread, just so there's transparency and teams aren't just moved last minute.

Also just so it's mentioned, threads such as the official ruleset (which, again, is similar to WL's with the exception that Elite League allows players unable to load through CTGP-R Launcher to play, but you're still advised to read through them in case - the most recent update can be found here) and the conditionals list (if we feel it's relevant to have one as opposed to just saying "everyone on CTGP-R is safe, everyone not loading via that method must show startup") are to be coming within the next few days, so please stay tuned for those.

Please ensure that you have read and understood everything mentioned within this post. If required, feel free to ask members of staff questions either in this thread, directly via MarioKartBoards, or in the Discord itself.

Without further ado, the following are the preliminary seedings for Season 2 of Elite League!

I would move Bo to D2 since they have Maxx and Emil
It’s been brought up and some of us agree, but the only problem is it seems we don’t have a team we can move down. More changes will come though.

Bø is playing the season for fun so don't expect us to be that good.

Emil isn't gonna play every week for EL. Maxx isn't always gonna run as he volunteered to troll if it's trolling format and he has little to no experience to playing troller position.

Overall, I find these seedings perfectly fine and don't think we should make any swaps.

Whats the format of the season with the 6 team divisions? If it's the same deal as WL (10 weeks then playoffs) the next season of WL will start way before the end of the EL season.

These seedings aren't any good however D4 should be focused on. When looking at the rosters of each team in the div, CM's roster stands out. It is similar to ape's WL roster for S14 and maybe better with players competing in higher divs such as miist, Bryant and taka. Moving ape and kl down evens the playing fields of D4. Teams like DD and C9 will not have much of a chance but they would not either with only CM in the div. Similar case with ux s1 of EL, where they played with an extremely similar roster and won the div without having any serious competition and even winning by 100 in the finals. This is also good for ape and kl as they also now have a higher chance of winning the div as d3 has a big skill gap similar to d4

I agree with this but I don’t think kl should be moved down because they have yax and he will just carry considering he’s a d3 player and everyone else in d4 is a d5 wl player

Keep D1 this way please and thank you. No point moving GUN and GAMT down when their best lus are as good as ours if not better (our top lu never plays together since ages). D4 should stay 4 teams, Mitch and Bo are interchangeable as whatever you seed into D3 will have an easy time either way.
