    Hello coaches,

    Season 7 had wrapped up with @Scaritus finally snatching well deserved title. Congratulations!

    It is time to move on and start Season 8!

    Much of the same format is the same: the divisions will be adjusted according to TVs with influence of the previous season finishes. The official rules are at https://bbtactics.com/forum/threads/combo-crunch-rules.12911/, if you need a refresher, but I'll post the important pieces:
    * 2 weeks on Match Day
    * 3 minutes timer
    * Mixed teams (new teams must have at least 11 players)
    * All enhancements, upgrades, inducements and kick off events are on

    Post here and let me know what team you are going to play.
    The competition will start if it will have at least 6 teams signed up.

    The list so far:
    1. @mamutas, "V iz for Violence", Violence Together mix (I'm tentative, may drop if we have enough teams)
    2. @RJCarrot, "The Good Guys", returning team
    3. @Zombane, "The Walking Dead TV Shows", returning team
    4. @sbr32, "All of the Elves", returning team
    5. @tys123, ???
    6. @Obsidianwolf9, ???
    7. @Kjelstad, "Movie Monsters"
    8. @Scaritus, ???
    9. @Rhystel, "Throne's Blooded"

    The Good Guys will return. A bit dinged up from the final but recovering.

    The Walking Dead TV Shows will return, unlike the cancelled TV shows they are named after.

    It seems like the most is back!
    9 teams so far.

    @Scaritus @tys123 are you going to bring your overdeveloped monsters or rolling something fresh?

    Excellent, the old gang is all back!
    I'll wait until weekend in case someone else will join.
    I'll post the divisions before that though, as there are some difficult decisions to make. :confused:

    I think it is Monster Movie Mayhem. Just in case you are sending a ticket. Five games over ten weeks, it is hard to remember!

    While I am hoping @mamutas decides to go for a 10 team swiss format for this season so I have a chance to avoid being beaten up by either of you.

    Ok, I had thought about the next season divisions and I can't think about any combo that would not put teams with several hundreds TV difference one way or another.

    Here is how the previous season ended.
    Div A:
    1. @Scaritus, "The Force Awakens", Far East Association, 2230
    2. @RJCarrot, "The Good Guys [CC]", Alliance of Good, 1750
    3. @tys123, "Nearly All Stars", Chaos Player Pact, 2270
    4. @mamutas, "V iz For Violence", Violence Together, 1480
    Div B:
    1. @sbr32, "All the Elves I've Loved", Elfic Grand Coalition, 1510
    2. @Kjelstad, "Monster Movie Mayhem", Afterlife United, 1440
    3. @Zombane, "The Walking Dead TV Shows", Afterlife United, 1300
    4. @Rhystel, "Throne's Blooded", Chaotic Player Pact, 1130
    5. @PauNosCornos, "Break for Sake", Chaos Gods, 1190
    6. @Obsidianwolf9, "Shadow Talons", Elfic Grand Coalition, 880, or new team
    Technically and according to the rules, me and @tys123 would swap with @sbr32 and @Kjelstad. But it'll put "Nearly All Stars" against the like of "Shadow Talons" and I won't expect either side having much fun. @tys123 suggestion about Swiss format kind of make sense, if I to sort the teams by their adjusted TV values, so at least the first match is paired with the similar level team. In that case we would have a list like that. Guaranteed that in the second game TV difference will be quite significant.

    @tys123, "Nearly All Stars", Chaos Player Pact, 2270
    @Scaritus, "The Force Awakens", Far East Association, 2230
    @RJCarrot, "The Good Guys [CC]", Alliance of Good, 1750
    @sbr32, "All the Elves I've Loved", Elfic Grand Coalition, 1510
    @mamutas, "V iz For Violence", Violence Together, 1480
    @Kjelstad, "Monster Movie Mayhem", Afterlife United, 1440
    @Zombane, "The Walking Dead TV Shows", Afterlife United, 1300
    @PauNosCornos, "Break for Sake", Chaos Gods, 1190
    @Rhystel, "Throne's Blooded", Chaotic Player Pact, 1130
    @Obsidianwolf9, "Shadow Talons", Elfic Grand Coalition, 880, or new team

    Hmm, maybe we will go with this format, dunno yet. Still thinking...
