Firstly: If you don't like the format or anything else about the tournament - then that is my fault so blame me. But - if you enjoy it - then thank Peter - as it was his idea to have the tournament.
I imagine it will be possible to create a private forum for your team - but please speak to a dev (not me).
All submissions mentioned from here on should be made to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will make sure that the Team GB decisions are taken by Rocklizard before I check any messages. If at any stage a submission is not made - I will do your submission for you (randomly). After each submission deadline has passed I will post all decisions.
The first stage will last FOUR weeks (change from rules).
Each team will play one match against every other team in their group.
By Friday 17th September (9am UK time) each captain must submit their line-up for each match in the group stage. This is only really important for the teams of 7. Who should rest four different players for their four matches.
By Friday 17th September (5.30pm UK time) each captain should submit for each match their two vetos of planets (if you want to veto different planets for different matches that is fine just make it clear in your e-mail).
Captains will then have the weekend to discuss with their team who will play PL/FNU on each planet - remember that each player must play 3 battles in each match.
Submission of battle allocation for each match must be made by Monday 20th September (9am UK time). Tiger and I will then start the battles at some point on Monday. All battles will have 3 day turn limit.
The top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals. With group winners playing the runners-up of the other group.
Good luck all.
If you have any questions about the format please post them here and I will attempt to help. Sorry if anything is not clear. (Please look at the rules first though).
