    So with that being said: reffing is learning process and requires just a bit of retooling of words. Observe the ones that are doing it the best like Current!Connor or Jeri in the past. They said few words but they are precise with what they are saying.

    If it is hard, well you dont have to be perfect which is why D grade exist and why people dont mind handing levellers to D graded refs.

    Everything is waiting on me. Im on TA until tomorrow.

    Reffing is hard? Not really. Learning how to ref goes in hand with learning how to battle. Seeing both sides of the coin helps you grasp the game in a much wider angle. If you cannot ref, the league will respect that, but you cannot feel entitled to hold 4 matches. 3 standard matches are still a good number, you are gaining 9 KOes if all three are 3v3.

    4/6: Jeri gave a great explanation to 4/6 and why he axed it. Check TO. You dont get to simply abuse 4/6, gain 6 KOes during doubles in a possible 6 round match, and then have the ref claim 18 SP. That is all absurd and abusable. 4/6, pokemon can die to 2-3 moves. In doubles you gain the use of 4 moves. You can have alternating breaks and finish the match in a possible 6 round manner.

    The reffing situation: Connor does not need 15+ matches, TFK with 10+, me with 8+, and MTG with 10+ to function as a league. Everyone needs to pick up the weight. Everyone should ref at least 1 match as a service back to the league. Nowadays we get 4 battle slots, 1 exhibition, 1 gym challenge, and then as a gym leader two more slots. Thats too much and not sustainable. It is not thankless, it is self serving because you get to use that SP earned to purchase items or additional battle slots. If you dont want to ref due to lack of time, one less battle slot wont hinder your overall progression.
