How about having a swiss system league instead of these sections. No need for us to wait if our team doesn't make the playoffs. Meeting teams of equal strength all the time. Well, playing for multiple teams may then be impossible, that's the only minus, I see. Everything else is a plus. We can even allow anyone to play for as many teams. If they're paired against themselves, it can be an unplayed draw. :)

That has been suggested before, but the problem is that it would eliminate the possibility of extensions. With Swiss the pairings in the next round depend on the results of the current round, so we would have to have all results decided within one week.

We can start a new round every eight to ten days. I don't think it's necessary to publish pairings only on Tuesdays. Then every minute of every day of the week will be a potential time and it will be possible to finish the games within the deadline. Unplayed draws can be the final solution. :)
