Thanks! Cleaned up a dangling rumor there, too. As I'd said, this was in the works for a while.

Relegation seem unclear to me considering a few pro teams aren't around anymore.

So Heat and 187 lost relegation so they go to challengers to start the 15 season. While Dynasty and Imfamous move up. With Chaos and Vicious leaving Why not just keep 187 and Heat in Champions to start 15 and move 4 teams up from d1 to challengers? AC Dallas has already accepted to move up but TMG has not (saying they have not been offered yet). Does that mean they will extend invitations to the teams that finished 3,4,5,6 and so on down the D1 line or do you believe they will try and pull teams from other pro leagues around the world? Tough to see a team that finished 5th overall in D1 get a pro spot. Just my thought I could be totally wrong but just wanted to get an idea.

We've heard lots of things that aren't confirmed yet, too. I had to delete out a ton of stuff that was originally in here (the thread started behind the scenes) about this rumor and that rumor. Even some that are probably true.

There is no chance anyone from REVO is leaving. Those guys are too tight to get picked off in their first season.

With the whole relegation questions, I believe since Art Chaos and Vicious both leave they will bring heat and 187 back to champions. As for the challengers division, they should allow Red Storm and XSV back before they go down the d1 line. Then still bring up the 2 d1 teams and everything is filled.

That kind of defeats the purpose of the relegation format to be honest. But then again I think the current relegation format is weird. I would rather see teams only be relegated at the end of each season instead of event to event.

Yes it defeats the Purpose, but with teams dropping why give the opportunity to teams in d1 that are truly not ready for it yet?

Who are we to say they're not ready? Revo did pretty well with their mid season call up.

Yes you're right, but we also missed out going up the year before by one or two points in the series. You look at the 4th and 5th place teams in division one and they are 50-100 points behind the first place team and I know both teams played all 5 events. Not bashing them saying they can't do it, Im just saying keep the pro teams that are suppose to get bumped down up. Give those division one teams another year to prove themselves of placing high in the standings and have more experience before they get bumped up into something they are not ready for. Just my 2 pennies, it's nothing but an opinion and we will have to wait and see what PSP decides to do with 2015.
