So i've read everyones posts and think there is a lot of great input.
Pangea, I can say with almost certainty that the $10 registration fee will not be obligatory and will be optional. The bottom line is, if $10 isn't much money to you and you want to play in the tourney then please do the right thing and donate. With that said, someone on your team could spare $10 lol.
I like Orcun's/hedgies/pacovs idea in regards to demigod selection. For orcun's point system i would move the reg up to 3 points, and not 2, (mines and snipe are pretty damn effective lol.)
We could also just simplify it and say that you can have 1 (rook or UB) and 1 (oak or LE) and whatever else. What do you guys think?
I agree with Pacov though, we should now focus on team selection while we work out the tourney details. My suggestion is, again to just keep it simple, that based on the former list generated by the community, only one tier 1 player per team and no more than two tier 2 players per team. This would help prevent super teams but would give flexibility for team generation. If your name isn't on that list then there are no restrictions.
Oh, i don't know if you guys noticed the OMG in front of nomilarac's name lol. (ya know, it kinda looks like the OMG in front of my name - hint hint)
For the last tournament, there were a lot of late registrations that happened close to the tourney start. By complicating the registration process i would think this would be detrimental to the tourney.
The issues that i foresee with randomly generated teams have mostly been mentioned, some people may not be serious enough and team synergy issues etc. We also don't want people fo feel slighted because they have a team mate that they dont want.
While this should go without saying though, primary accounts should only be used for the tourney and 1 entry per person. Using an alt-nick and entering twice would DQ both teams that the offender is on.
Spreading the word:
How do we get this info out to the players that used to play and the players that currently play that don't participate in the forums?
