    YES, A PROPER FORUM FOR DISCUSSION

    I swear on my life that even if I am the only person in this thread I will post all my NPA thoughts here instead of Twitter, Twitter is garbage.

    Zach you're gonna hate me for using first post on a controversial topic already but I want to say DrFidget's pledge he made in the manager thread is really cool and I respect that. It'd be neat if all the other managers agreed to make some commitment to diversity to stand with him like, say, all nominating a female player for their round 1 draft pick

    We haven't discussed anything like that as managers and likely won't. I'm doing it with my picks because it's important to me, but other teams need to be free to make their own picks. I also don't want to steal focus or have people think so and so only got drafted because they're a girl. The ratio from other years sends the message that those players haven't been getting drafted for the same reason. Whether or not it's true doesn't matter, how it looks is discouraging to anyone thinking about signing up if they aren't a dude.

    I made my pledge on twitter and in the manager thread and it seems like a number of good players signed up as a direct response to that. So that's heartening. I haven't talked to other teams about it, though the Stars sent me a text showing their support.

    That's not to say the rest of the league isn't interested in diversity, we added more managers outside of the US and Europe to hopefully tap into more global talent. I don't want anyone to think I'm calling out the other managers. I appreciate them giving me this position and as long as I have it I'll do what I can to make it enjoyable for everyone.

    Inspired after seeing a DOU ace nicknamed "Stax" and his banner, small-statured frania decides he wants one. The #1 seeded DOU player even signs up for SPL; however, his hopes of being drafted turn out to be his last when they are brutally squashed by "Sam's VGC friend" EmbCPT. frania vows to surpass EmbC, and so after graduating from middle school, he joins the Hearthome Holy Spirits NPA team—only to find that his sworn rival, EmbC, is now his teammate.

    Thanks to his short height, frania struggles to find his role on the team, even with his DOU Circuit dominance. Surprisingly, EmbC has his own problems that only frania can help with, and learning to work together appears to be the only way for the team to be successful. Based on Haruichi Furudate's popular shounen manga of the same name, Haikyuu!! is an exhilarating and emotional pokemon comedy following two determined players as they attempt to patch a heated rivalry in order to make their NPA team the best in Japan.

    After familiarizing myself with this week's NPA drama (which was, I might add, far harder than it needed to be, because of the selfish decision to start a fight on twitter instead of the forums where it's far more accessible to the fans) I figured I'd share my own personal advice for how to deal with getting haxed out of a set. That is: always blame yourself for not playing better, internalize guilt for the loss, and let it feed your depression and make you dread playing this game. Hope this helped! :)
