K1NG_PWN4G3 makes the best case.
I can't quite understand why Hawk would be on the list in the first place, if there wasn't any kind of motive toward him being there in the future, at one point in time.
ELO, in my opinion, has become so disorganized as of late. I wouldn't blame the Staff for that too harshly, it must be incredibly difficult trying to run a perfectly balanced game, ubiased to all players, regardless of level and/or rank AND to keep it consitently entertaining at the same time.
However too many ideas + too many complaints by too many people + too many people weighing in. Caused the 'POT' to bubble over and ergo, ELO is a freakin' mess.
Hawk is one example of a 'Leak' in the system and the banning of the Leaders is a significant other.
I refuse to believe that Hawk's presence on the list this week, was a simple mistake. Even if it was (which it wasn't) I'm sure theres a big red button down at Staff HQ, which says 'EJECT HAWK'. And theres no real reason why that 'button' hasn't been pushed yet.
I hope I don't sound too much like a conspiracy theorist with this message, just a funny kind of FYI about something thats totally unimportant.
