Do you like an idea to have 16 team playoffs when there are total 16 teams in the competition?

    ;) hey, this is the first season of the new game. i think it would be better to get more games in rather. however, i said "we can" not "we will".
    I'll make a poll. :p Check it on the top of the thread.

    Is it possible to give top teams a bye week? You could do 6 team playoffs (top 3 from each division), where the top seed from each division gets a bye the first playoff week while seeds 2 and 3 play. This serves to reward the top team in a significant way, so people who have already locked a playoff spot are still competing for something.

    All teams making the playoffs doesn't make sense from a competitive perspective, but it means everybody gets to play more Blood Bowl which is fun. The regular season is just for seeding?

    I would probably prefer it a bit more competitive with some teams not making the playoffs just for a bit of intensity to the games, but don't mind if we want to make it a more casual competition.

    I chose 'Absolutely not' but I am more 'Prefer not, but not too bothered' :p

    I'll play with The Dark Pirates, a Dark Elf team. I have 2 others with similar names, this is the only 1000TV one.

    I rather we do 16/20 teams with 4 divisions with 4/5 teams each and the winners of each division would go to either a round-robin or a double eliminarion.

    I was thinking of playing with a High Elf team instead of Skaven. Can I change my team into High Elves?
    It's because when I joined the cup I wanted to try out Skaven, but now I've realized that's not the smartest idea, and I should play with a team I am good with. It will be more fun this way.
    Tell me if it's not too late, so I can start making this High Elf team.
    Thanks

    EDIT: I've created the team, I'm just waiting now for your response if I can do substitute the two teams. The new team is a High Elf team called "The Spades".

    I've applied for the competition ingame with my Dark Elf team "The Deceivers - Munch Cup" (Coach: PapaNasty)

    If you want racial balance at all, I'm happy to change to another race :)

    I would like to enter my High Elf team "Pompous Knights" coached by Weerdoh. I think it may be full but if there is a space opening up I am ready to join.

    Thank you sbr32, for updating the list. I found neeky's team - it is Dark Elves.

    And, yes, Azura, you can change to another team. In fact, seeing that we have way to many Dark Elves, I am thinking about changing my own team. :D Dwarves and Chaos look pretty under represented.

    The deadline is this sunday 23.59 GMT-5. If you want any changes or want to join, post here before that time.

    All, as of right now, we will go with 2 divisions, with 8 teams in playoffs, unless we get closer to 20 teams total, then I will make playoffs of 16 teams.

    Weerdoh, you are on the cutting edge, the game does not allow by-ins and I can only create the competitions of even numbers. So, we are looking at 2 divisions x 8 teams. Next possible variant is 2 divisions of 10 teams, so that means we need 3 more teams.

    Ok. I just checked, I can't change the size of the created division. So, I will have to expel all your teams and recreate the divisions with the correct number of teams after sign up deadline. Then I will send invites to your teams and you would have to use that ticket. The teams will be split into the divisions in the order they applied, this is as random as any other methods.

    Cheers!

    Can I make up the 16th spot?

    I normally play Dwarf or Chaos but given this league doesn't look too bashy and to round off the full list of teams, I might go with wood elves.

    When you are making the divisions it might be good to place Motb and me in diferent ones, since he is my brother :)

    You meant 18th, right? Yes, you can, but as I explained later if we won't have enough, you'd be put in the waiting list. If for any reason someone would drop from competition mid season, the top coach from the waiting list will be offered to step in as a replacement. Not sure how this works in BB2, but we will figure out the best option.

    Please post your team name, race and your BB2 coach name here.

    Ok, fair request. I will make sure that you are in different divisions by swapping one of you with the closest position from other division.

    If there are too many Dark Elves, then I don't mind changing to another race (Maybe Chaos or Wood Elves as we only have 1 & 0 of them at the moment)

    Just post here what you'd like me to do, as from the sounds I'll need to re-register for the competition anyway.
