    Yes folks, you are all waiting for it: The Crunch Cup

    As you can probably tell, this is not it. As usual there will be an interim season to allow some rest for the people in charge of making the Crunch Cup fun (The main administrator Gallows Bait, and all the wonderful people toiling for the Crunch Cup Courier).

    This time it is CTAL-ESI - Crunch Them All League - Exhibition Season I

    So, what is CTAL-ESI?

    Well, as the name might imply, it is an exhibition league, to allow teams from Crunch Them All to run the circuit, make some money and experience before hitting the main stage. And most importantly, make a name for themselves.

    The League will have seeded divisions with six teams in every division, meaning the season will be five weeks long. If we end up with some mix of six teams that the Cyanide Client can't handle (like 30 coaches) then we'll handle that by using two different leagues in-game.

    There will be no play-offs for the League - you are mostly playing for the glory, and perhaps for some minor prizes. I'll see what I can scrounge up. It will probably have to be nothing but glory. ;)

    Matches are played weekly, organised via these forums, with the league operating in Classic rules mode with 4 minute turns and standard inducements only.

    Since this is a "Semirookie" League, teams will be eligible to enter if they are either:

    a) Rookie teams
    b) Rookie teams with upto 6 games played in Crunch Them All open league

    Teams that have played in the CTAL-ESI will be allowed to go on to the Crunch Cup afterwards. No decision has been made about whether the "two games between seasons" will apply or not, so if you want to play it safe, make sure to have had a couple of games with the team before applying to the CTAL-ESI

    If you would like to enter, please respond below. Teams will be accepted on a first come first served basis. Just provide your coach name, team name and race.

    Team values and eligibility will be reviewed prior to seeding and following a period for teams to enter the League in game itself. Coaches that fail to apply in game within the time limit or whose teams don't meet the rules for entry will be passed over for any reserve coaches further down the list.

    Applications should preferably be in pretty darned soon. :D
    (Like, before the end of the week in this thread)

    Question: If I play a team in ES I, must I enter that team in the next CC?

    *edit*

    out of curiosity, does this mean that CCXI will be delayed by the same number of weeks?

    That is unlikely, since we can't force you to actually play in the next CC, nor should we be allowed to force you to keep a team that has been completely devastated.

    Technically the CCXI will be delayed about a week or so. The rest of the delay would have happened anyway, due to the team behind the CC and the CCC needing a few weeks to rest and recover. It is surprisingly hard work.
