Woodmanaldo you are wrong, that rule was changed this season, you now have to play 3 games by March 15th to qualify for semi final & final. Foxhole had 1 player ineligible as he had played only 2 games by said date but had played in every round of the cup.
Below is the rule which clearly states the amount of games a player has to play to qualify for semi final & final
2. A player registered for a Club in the League shall be eligible to play for that Club in one of the Cup Competitions, but he shall NOT play for more than one Club or more than one team of that Club, or in more than one of the Cup
Competitions in any season.
A player shall not play in a Semi-Final or Final match of a Cup Competition unless he has played in THREE or more games for that team in any Duchy League competition prior to 15th March in that season.
A player who has been registered prior to the 31st October of the current season, but has not played the three requisite matches, may assist a team in a Semi-Final or Final match of a Competition providing he has not played for any other higher ranked team in competitive matches during the said season.
