Obviously the COE is dormant since a while (again). There should have been election before 2022, but nobody cared. The charter says "The acting Council shall remain in office until a new Council is elected." So i guess it makes sense to call upon the other COE members and start a vote.
Hmm... seeing all the Committee action raises concerns. I don't understand the reason for the charter. The old carter was not followed. And then it was recently revised, and that current charter is not being followed. I get it was Covid but, there seems to be a history of this.
Maybe the players don't care because the Council doesn't do anything? And the Council doesn't bother because they know that?
b) The term of office shall be twenty-four months. In the event that a member is not able to bring his term to completion, the Council shall appoint a new member chosen from the community. Election procedures for a new session of the Council shall be started twenty-two months after the appointment of the current Council. The acting Council shall remain in office until a new Council is elected.
The term of office for CoE members is over. It ended in March 2021. The provision for remaining in office is to see the election through. The term is over and the only thing left to do is elections.
By the way...
Good to see that the tournament director just made their own decision.

I believe scouting is not so powerful when you don't have the chance to change your deck.
But how much of that is because players acknowledge scouting will likely happen so they choose (one might say, are strategically forced?) to play decks for which scouting is less powerful?

This iniciative of the Council of Rivendel pretend to filter the decks by consistency, not by who plays the finals, so the newcomers of the game have a better understanding of the game mechanics. It's difficult to understand why a deck with many ant-FW cards directly in the deck can lead to the top, when the reality is that some player made that simply because he nows the preferences of the final 4 playes that year.
As Manuel alluded to, it sounds like those newcomers are simply looking in the wrong place for the information they
desire and confusing themselves into thinking a 4-player event represented consistency. A different solution than making the semi-finals decks be used in finals would be as simple as providing those newcomers the deck lists from those at the top of the much larger and more general semi-finals tournaments. *shrug*
It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world.
One [online community] with hammer and chisel might mar more than they make... Cautious skill!
