    Crunch Cup XI: Sponsored by Fatshark


    [​IMG]

    So after a much needed rest and with the Crunch Them All Exhibition League in full swing for those coaches with off-season withdrawal symptoms, it is time once again to announce the next Crunch Cup.

    The Glittering Prizes:

    We are pleased to announce that in a continuation from the previous Crunch Cup has more than one prize. In fact all semi-finalists will win a prize! We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our awesome sponsors Fatshark for their generosity and support of both the Crunch Cup and bbtactics.com

    For all of those qualify for the Semi-finals will receive a unlock code to allow them to download the digital edition of the brilliant squad based RPG from Fatshark - Krater.

    For the winner of the Crunch Cup, the prize instead is a hard copy of the double disc Collector’s Edition of Krater, including the stunning soundtrack CD by acclaimed Swedish artist Christian Gabel.


    The Structure:

    As with previous Crunch Cups, this season will be divided into a divisional group stage and a play off stage with the top teams from each division progressing to play in the knock out matches until the final is reached and an eventual winner.
    This season in order to increase flexibility the league will be managed in two parts using Cyanide. The group stage will be played in the league UEI: Crunch Cup (Group Stage) and the Play Off process will be played in the league UEI: Crunch Cup (Play Off Stage). This will allow for a flexible number of divisions to fit the variable number of applying teams and Play Off places to be determined on a more flexible basis depending on the number of divisions. In all cases a total of 16 teams will qualify to progress to the Play Offs.

    The Group Stage and qualification for Play Offs:

    The group stage will include divisions of 8 teams, giving each coach 7 matches played on a weekly basis. Teams will be assigned to divisions by manual seeding as determined by the League Commissioner in order to match similarly experienced and developed teams to the same divisions and allow newer teams a fairer chance of success by placing them in divisions of the closest peers.

    In the event of 8 or less divisions being required to meet demand, the top two ranked teams will qualify for the Play Off stage. The remaining Play Off places not filled will be assigned on a Wild Card basis, with the top non-qualifying teams assigned places based on their performance regardless of division. In the event of more than 8 divisions being required to meet demand, only the top team from each division will qualify, with remaining Play Off places again assigned by Wild Card.

    The Rules and Eligibility:

    Full rules, including the eligibility requirements for teams to enter the Crunch Cup, can be found in this thread:

    http://bbtactics.com/forums/uei-crunch-cup-rules-t2382/

    All coaches registering an interest in the Crunch Cup will be required to sign up to the UEI: Crunch Cup (Group Stage) league in the Cyanide game by the deadline (to be set shortly, once interest has been gauged). Failure to sign up in game will see your application ignored in favour of coaches further down the list.

    Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis, however if you are currently coaching a team in CTALE please feel free to reserve your place even if you are unsure whether the same team will be playing.

    All coaches should provide the following details below to register their interest:

    Coach name (forum and in game):
    Team name:
    Race:
    Timezone:


    Breaking news: Due to continued interest we will expand play offs to 32 teams and aim to fill more than 8 divisions accordingly.

    All applications must be received and accepted in game before Friday 22nd March 2013 23.00 GMT.

    Hi all,

    I would like to participate if possible in this edition of the league.

    Currently I am at work so I thought I'll be doing well in posting to save a place, but tonight I'll update with the name and race of the team I'll choose if able to get in.

    Cheers!!

    Password for in-game applications will be posted as soon as I can this evening and work out the best sign up deadline (given we have 3 weeks left of CTALE it'll likely be just after then, so no need for anyone to panic).
