So, after missing Season 7 due to life changes, I have to say this is extremely dissapointing. I've been involved in AL since Mulmaster, and while there have been some issues with the format over the years, this takes the cake. These rules are sloppy, devoid of editing, and poorly formatted. Despite the huge outcry from the community against this, both before and after the changes were enacted, the response from the admins has boiled down to "if you don't like the railroad, sucks for you. Jump out and we'll replace you at the next stop." This isn't dnd anymore, and I will not be using these rules in my local league. I highly recommend anyone interested in league ignore this garbage fire and use the rules from Season 7. You and your players will be much happier not playing Fantasy Accountants who are paid by the hour, and you'll enjoy skipping the headache of trying to figure out how this works, much less explaining it to new people night after night. If the goal was to alienate the entire playerbase, many of whom have been involved for years, good job Wizards. Cons have already had record shortages of DM's this year, and I don't see any coming back while this antagonistic buisness practice holds true.
