    Use this thread to let me know, if you are interested in taking part of the 1st Cup.

    The kick-off will most likely be 22nd of February, which is around the days when Big Crunch 2 ends.

    -Rules and structures can be found here-

    The breakdown of 1st Cup:
    # Knockout format (you lose, you are out)
    # 8 Coaches (possible extension to 16 if we have the numbers)
    # Use a rookie team that has 11 players
    # You have one week to schedule your game and play (meaning, the two coaches in the finals will commit for three weeks)

    Any questions? :skull:If you see all the spots are taken, but still have interest - please enlist yourself to reserve.:skull:

    Don't share which race you are going to pick.

    Enlisting will close 17th of February.

    1. Regor
    2. TravelScrabble
    3. cjblackburn

    Thinking about the race thing. Since it's three matches tops, some races are stronger than others.

    Would it be more interesting that everyone would let me know their race in PM, lets say before 19th of Feb and then I reveal them all? This way there will be no counter-picking and meta gaming with it.

    Was going to suggest this. And put me in as well please.

    Edit just read the rules. You can't roll 1 or 2 on 3d6 so may want to alter the 1-9 / 10-18 range for determining a winner if the match is not played.

    This never happened and I will never admit that such error has taken place.

    I think the secrecy with races could be fun addition, so lets roll with that.

    If you were feeling brave you could do a draft. Draw lots for the 8 players then in turn everyone gets to choose their race from the remaining teams with no duplicates allowed. You could even do it in secret if you want but it might be fiddly.

    I added a poll. Please vote.

    It's a good idea. A bit fiddly but doable.

    I'll play. As for how race may be decided. Maybe we could just exclude a few of them. Two schools of thought here. Exclude the wimpy ones, or exclude one or two strong ones.. Just ideas

    Ill put my name down, going to have to think about what race still though like others are.

    Edit: Voted for the draft as it sounds interesting and i will likely pick something stupid anyway.

    Alright, full house and got the first reserve. If you feel like something like this could be fun, and wanna play - join reserves.

    I have no issue raising to 16 coaches if the numbers are there, since it extends the comp by one week. But I think it is you the coaches who decide that. It will go on one week longer for a very few of you, but more get to enjoy a second game.

    Draft seems to be taking the clear lead here, guess I will simply write all your names on a post-it note, fold them same way and mix them up in a hat. Though I need all coaches to be ready once enlisting is done, since I contact you guys one by one.
    (I imagine that draft w/ 16 coaches would mean that strong races get just 1 ticket and the rest 2?)

    I changed the deadline of enlisting two days closer, now its 17th of Feb. Just to allow more time for (possible) draft and team creation.

    If you are happy with the Draft not being secret. Why not just post here with a list of the draft placing. PM everyone then hopefully they can post in order quickly.

    Also if we go to 16 then maybe have 2 drafts of 8 as whoever draws 15/16 will be at a significant disadvantage. You seed the 2 drafts separately so the only duplicate could be the final.

    Won't Khemri / Chaos dwarfs be out by the time the drafting starts? I believe they are planned to come out on 15th of Feb.

    Probably but in a 3 match rookie tournament making some one pick Khemri, Chaos or Nurgle based on a die roll seems harsh. I think a draft of 8 means if you want to play Bash/Hybrid/Dash you can. You may not get exactly the team you want but you can get something to suit no matter where you draw.
