    If you want to ask questions, want some clarification, or just don't want to start a banter thread of your own - feel free to post whatever about the Crunch Cup here.

    Do the top 4 from each division move on to the play-offs?

    Seems to make sense. (I did try to imply it in the MM threads, but writing it more clearly is probably for the best )

    If you need plenty of time due to travel and whatnot you'll have up to a week. But as soon as everyone is signed up, things will get rolling. Crunched cup will probably follow as soon as possible.

    That's the way things roll. It's not that often it's the team of stat-monsters winning it all though. The playoffs are unforgiving for all.

    I'd settle for a full roster

    I'm going to be carrying 2 loners and a new blitzer to go with a -mv -av blitzer

    Doubles and stats don't necessarily make for a good team though. My Necro has had some nice skill rolls, but the team is short on skills in general as a consequence. I've also managed to lose two level 2 wights, a level 4 ghoul, a level 1 golem and a level 1 wolf since this team began, so it's seen a fair amount of positional turnover.

    I just lost my most special player, the AG 5 (Blodge/SH) thrower. So there's that.

    Just to double up on information:

    The time has come to show who is top dog and who is merely a good dog.

    If you are in the playoff you should move your team into the "Crunch Cup Playoffs" league, password "crunchcup" as soon as possible.
    (If you are not in the playoff, i.e. listed below, I'm expecting you to sign up in the "Crunched Cup for the Crunch Cup" league, password "crunch", also as soon as possible)

    Once everyone has joined up, the following seeing will be put in place, and then the playoffs can start in earnest.

    Pass and Move (TYS123) will play Malekith Cocktails (Kazman29)

    Niffe Naffe Nurgle (Netsmurf) will play The Flimsy Crusade (Borke)

    Caerdydd Crunchers (Dionysian) will play Dante's Disco Inferno (Barmution)

    Crunch Cup Elite (Lebe666) will play Kallahir Swifts (Dreamy)

    Basochists (Znarx) will play Panic Tomb (20phoenix)

    Accidental Death (danton) will play Drow Attack Squadron (sudo_nym)

    Naggaroth Express (Phototropia) will play Warpstone Munchie Feast (Glokta)

    Green Hats II (St.Cloud) will play Khornmunication Breakdown (jounisii)​

    The matchweek will start as soon as possible, and end the 20th at the latest, but sooner is better. You all want to know who'll win this one, right?

    As a point of interest how was the final tiebreaker between me and 20p worked out? :confused:

    Because it looks like it was about as close as it could possibly get.

    Would it be possible to enlist in the crunched cup although I did not participate in this CC?
    I have at least 3 CC legal teams (i.e. having played 6 CTA games from scratch or 2 CTA games since last CC).

    If you in any way wanted to play CC, but in no way reached the CC playoff, then CrC is open to you.

    Long version:
    If you have a team that played at least a day in the CC, but didn't end up in the playoff, that team can join the CC.
    If you didn't have any team in the CC, but wanted to play, then any CC eligible team you have is allowed to fill out the CrC.
    (If you never expressed any desire to play in the CC, you might be asked to make a set of rookies into your CrC fillers. This might also happen if the CrC is small, four or eight teams. Neither applies to you this time.)

    Straight BBM magic. The rules say "tiebreaking by BBM unless there's a reason not to" and I saw no reason not to. (Neither side had any admin games, neither side was a "true stunty")

    But yeah, I had to look it up because damn that was tight (and across the bad border of playoff/ not playoff. :()

    Cheers Nik.

    That truly was the tightest I've ever seen it and in the worst possible league position.

    I just hope 20p does well in the playoffs now.
