Are you volunteering to do all the work of being the organizer, because "we" can only make things happen when someone volunteers to do the heavy lifting.

To be honest with you I think it will take a lot of work to make a second USL season. After the first season, most of the admins, players, teams agreed that it as a very hard job on the long run. Also the fact that the prizepool was very limited made a lot of players go away from league. Also as far as I heard people talk about it, most teams that played in season 1 won't play in season 2. However something I can say is that IF USL season 2 was happening I will be helping just like I did for season 1, because there is no reason for NA not to have any kind of tournaments to play in, and I want to keep league going for as long as possible.

Sure I'll help, but isn't there already organizers for this from last season?

IF we wanna make it happen, we have to go back to when we started in season 1, meaning finding teams, admin crew, which overall is a hard work and finding enough dedicated people surely will be an issue, but again count me in.

Most of the organizers from last season dont want to take the jobs again, because it takes time and patience to be part of this

I'd be more than happy to help encourage people to get teams together or to help run things... Given how hard things are going to be for us from here on out.

Just put it this way

Last season had a prizepool that was pretty low compared to the efforts all teams made which is one of the downsizes of playing USL

Last season was also considered a practice for teams while waiting for the actual SL to return

Now that we have no clue when the next actual league season will be, most teams wont be returning unless :

1) We get a decent prizepool which will bring a good amount of players

2) We get enough teams and players interested in playing to bring new teams on the table

3) We really settle everything properly, to do even better than last season

Now if you have answers on how to fully achieve these 3 points then go ahead. Otherwise just say goodbye to WGL because it wont come back in 2018

Well I can offer my time but I have no idea how we can get funding for a decent sized prize pool.

Like Dota 2 or maybe Fantassy sports it's possible to do crowdfunding but there is no incentive.

 That would require lots of help from wargaming at least for a Dota style funding, as that was based off the sale of in-game goods.

Yeah that's why I'm saying there's no incentive. It could turn into gambling and then the league would be private and would also have an age requirement for all players.

Last season was crowdfunded and it didnt go well, you need another input. As for your time, we would need the time of a number of poeple not just one

Poi isnt going to be in charge

What we do is we setup a meeting to see who is interested in helping or playing and then we get started from there. However we dont have enough people and teams willing to play we need more to even try to get started

I made a forum post about this, and so far have gotten lots of interest. Looks good for getting it going again :)
