    Hello there, everyone!

    As you may have seen in the past few weeks, certain things have been a bit strange, a bit different in terms of naming. Some of you may have been eagle-eyed and spotted the title of the registry, some of you may have spotted KD’s name on the Discord server, or some of you may have just been told by someone, but as of Season 8 the Custom Server League is going under quite a significant rebranding to become the Wiimmfi League.

    The original name, the “Custom Server League” initially originated simply from the fact that when starting up people were uncertain as to if the community would stay on Wiimmfi, or if it would have to move to another custom server solution. After 2 years of service, and with the inclusion of Wiimmfi now being the standard for channels such as the CTGPR Channel, we are convinced that Wiimmfi is going to be the mainstaple choice for a long period of time and therefore we have decided to rebrand ourselves based upon the server, therefore we are the Wiimmfi League.

    With this rebrand comes a whole lot of work for the graphic designers, from logos (which have already been designed as of this point), stream layouts for the Media Team if required, and potential for even more graphics to be made or edited for future ideas. Sabby is the designer of the logo you will see on this post, so thank you to her for all the hard work, and for putting up with all the nit-picky changes we’ve requested in the past few weeks.

    Of course, the rebrand isn’t just solely because we’ve chosen to dedicate the league to the servers that have served the community for the past two years - we have chosen to perform this rebrand at a time where the community needs a change, where the league needs to be able to meet the rising standards and the requests of all the players to make it convenient yet fair, and we believe that by rebranding now we will be able to have a fresh start and have the chance to show to you, the community, that we are willing to put the hard work in, in order to improve this league, and that we understand how valuable change is.

    We hope that the change will lead to positive opinions, and we hope that after we have spent some time in off-season we will be able to provide you all a league that you’re happy with, potentially with teams such as the Media Team being more active in terms of casting and reporting on events. In the end, we want this league to run as smooth as possible, with as little amount of penalties as possible, with efficient staff being able to make the league understandable for people at all levels of the community.

    Remember, we are looking for staff applications for effectively every role in preparation for next season, so please apply if you are interested. We have already made decisions and taken action on those staff who we believe needed to be given the opportunity to leave, and therefore we will soon start to look at these applications, ask questions, and make decisions on who to bring in so as we can establish next season’s managers for a few roles, as well as general guidelines for our staff. If you would like to apply or bump your past applications (if they are months old, of course not if you’ve only applied within the last few weeks), please do so in this section: http://mkboards.com/forums/forums/wl-staff-applications.240/

    If you have any questions in regards to this change, the applications for staff or any other issues that may regard next season, please contact us either through Discord (our contacts can be found on http://mkboards.com/forums/threads/wiimmfi-league-staff-discord-contacts.17873/ ), or in this thread.

    Thank you for reading, thank you to Sabby for the graphics along with any others who assisted in the rebrand up to this point, and of course thank you to Wiimm and others for the servers in the first place, along with the ability for us to name our league after them. NeoRame also made the Wiimmfi logo, so credit goes there on original design.

    It's not so much the name, it's the rebrand in general. We want this rebrand to be a turning point for a league that has had a known list of faults for some time (as should be seen when looking at the staff contacts list for the league, quite a few are gone), and we want it to enable all the changes possible with the opportunity for teams like the Media Team to be able to take advantage and prove their activity following a somewhat disappointing season for them.

    Also, again, the name change also follows the fact that we're now definite on the permanent use of Wiimmfi, so there are other reasons that aren't "Hey please believe us we changed a word or two in our name!" or whatever minimal change you seem to want to believe there will be.

    A new name is pointless if the league is still going to be a shit fest, so good luck on improving the competitive scene

    The point of the off-season is to remove that of which has made it a "shit fest". :p

    It seems like the majority of the community thinks that the only thing that will change is the name. Did you read the OP or did you just look at the title and post?

    Hey there, apologies for the slow reply.

    In order to sign up to play, you need to play for a team that is participating. However if you would just like to sign up without a team and transfer to a team once you have one please feel free to put "Free Agents". The section to put new player registrations is located here and the general guide on how to make them is located here.

    Hope this helps, if not feel free to send me (or any other staff) a message and we'll try to help you.
