As usual there will be an interim season to allow some rest for the people in charge of making the Crunch Cup fun and once more this will be CTALE. Crunch Them All League - Exhibition season II So, what is CTALE? Well, as the name might imply, it is an exhibition league, to allow teams from Crunch Them All to run the circuit and gain some money and experience before hitting the main stage. And most importantly, make a name for themselves and perhaps build up a little bit of rivalry. The League will have seeded divisions with six teams in every division, meaning the season will be five weeks long. Seeding will be based upon team TV (current and potential) modified by team history and coach history and if possible a nod towards spreading races out for variety. There will be no play-offs for the League - you are mostly playing for the glory, and the fame. It will probably be nothing but the 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 CTALE will be allowed to go on to the Crunch Cup afterwards. They are also eligible to the "two games between seasons" between CTALE and the Crunch Cup (but if you intend to take the team straight on to the CC you will only have a few days to get those games in, should you want them). If you would like to enter, please respond below. When filling out the league teams will be accepted in the order of the list. 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 before the end of the month of June - then everyone accepted (and everyone hoping to be a reserve) can sign up ingame until the 12th of July. Seeding will then commence, and the season should start at the end of that week. - Note: league will open for in-game applications the 9th of July, all teams should have applied by the 12th of July - you have to be around to add your team during this period, or you are at risk of missing out.
