I was also surprised there were no patch notes of any kind. We're speculating what that trophy looking thing that replaced the live matches is all about. General feeling is it's another one of those "world tournaments" starting in 8 days or so.
The training thing caught me off guard. Was confused why my guys were on a 2 hour train when I was certain I clicked the 30 minute one. Hard to fully understand what the deal is there as I was a big fan of the 30 minute train.
And yes, the championship breakdown is indeed odd. Just top 1 goes up levels now and a stunning SEVEN players will no longer advance to the next tier. Considering I've gotten 4th place in 3 of the last 4 seasons, I'm guessing the odds of getting 1st are not very good (yet I was always on the cusp of that elusive top 3 and the coveted double promo). I would guess this has something to do with whatever the vision is of "balancing the game". Just kind of strange since in the rugby version, the top 3 advance THREE levels, the middle 6 go up two levels, and the bottom 5 go up a level. So, if you finish in dead last you move up one level. This update is essentially the exact opposite of the rugby game in that sense. Not sure what TDM is up to, but it has always had it's own fair share of oddities itself so who really knows.
Still, the oddest part of all is not getting some popup with the patch notes as these are all pretty major changes. Guess we'll all have to wonder what officially that "new" button is that opens in 8 days.
Oh and Jem i found out the championship promotion rules is the same as rugby's
