    I'd like to apply for the Crunch Cup if there's still room.

    Coach name: Znarx (here and on Cyanide)
    Team name: Bashochists
    Race: Orcs
    Time zone: GMT -8 (USA Pacific time)

    TV is 1000 (no games played, but they're currently in CTA). That might change slightly if I have time to get in any CTA games before CC starts.

    Technically dropping out this late would put you at the end of the line, if any - but since we're well on our way to 48 and another division that shouldn't matter much.

    Maybe one or two if you hurry.

    Or toss them in to make sure of your spot, and start CTAing with another team for next seasons CTALE.

    Hey 20P :) Baby seems to be only taking 23 hours a day now so I thought I'd get some BB in. I'll rejoin the Divs in a season or two but in the mean time I fancied something totally different than my Necro, hence Undead. Hadn't quite cottoned on that you could pre-level teams before joining the cup though, rookies are going to be fun :skull:

    Is it still possible to play a few matches within CTA with the new team I want to sign to CC?

    Yea, you just missed out unless 4-5 people quickly come out of the woodwork.

    Which means I'd suggest you put a team or two into CTA, run them through the six-game gauntlet, then take your preferred pick through the CTALE in a couple of months and after that apply when the signup threads for CC14 show up.

    Edit: Nevermind - you are Moteb, you just made it in. So stick another team into CTA :p

    Stick around - I might well need a replacement team down the line.

    Right so we're 48, 6 groups of 8 lets talk play-off numbers :). We could do 16 obviously for first 2 from each group and 4 wldcards but that feels pretty tight. 32 would top 5 from each and 2 wildcards - too loose. Crazy idea I had was a 26 team play off so top 4 + 2 wild cards where the division winners get a bye first round and then it carries on like a regular 16 team play-off. Might be too complicated to seed though.

    Thoughts? Nik what's it going to be?

    Okay there Goldilocks, I think you might be crazy. Bye weeks are a PITA because the way to do them properly (without giving away free spp and gold) is to run a separate league for the teams that don't get a bye for week one, then everyone left for week two joins a new championship league.

    Crazier thought! 48 teams let's everybody get to the elimination portion. Then people are actually fighting for a better seed. Good luck Nik. CCXIII should be interesting to say the least

    As sad as it might be, all signs (rules) point to 16 teams in the playoffs. Maybe I can do something fun with the wildcards? Or make it top four from eight groups of six. That might work. Probably time for a new thread though.

    If there's room for one more I wouldn't mind joining. I assume I will have to make a completely fresh team for it, in which it'll be a Chaos team, dunno what they will be called yet though :p

    Well, hang around. There's no room right now, but plenty of rookie teams have applied and history tells us one of them will probably drop out fast. :(

    (Else you'll just have to play CTA for a couple of months, until the next CTALE)
