Title: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 13, 2012, 07:31:19 PM
Sign ups have now closed.

Please keep posts to communicating between other players to form Ad Hoc teams and to declaring teams for the tourny.

RULES:
Code: [Select]
A unit with a minimum 6 pilots must declare their team by the deadline.

OR

An Ad Hoc team can be created: If at least six pub free agents band together and create a team with a name, they can be added to the list. One of them will need to be team captain who will communicate with me Via Private Messages on these forums to receive their updated variant list and help coordinate match times.

For actual units, =CJW= for instance, anyone who is in that unit is considered part of their unit's team should they declare. However, if ~SJ~ for example needed some extra free agents, they would have to declare them to their
team before the deadline. So, ~SJ~ declares the SJ team + joepubber1 and 2.

But for Ad Hoc teams, everyone must be declared each pilot at a time to officially be on the team.

You cannot be on more than one team. (though I MIGHT allow pilots from a dead team to sub for teams still alive if said teams can't field enough men for a match... we will see...)

If we have an odd number of teams by the deadline, one more team can be added on first post first serve basis, by Saturday Feb the 25th. If no team signs up by then, the last team to have signed up will be dropped (sowwy).


1. Smoke Jaguar
2. 9th Blood and Fire
3. Knights of the Inner Sphere
4. Eridani Light Horse
5. 12 Vegan Rangers
6. The Dominoes
7. Clan Cloud Cobra
8. Illician Lancers
9. Merc team 2

Clan Smoke Jaguar stands ready.

Glad to see something worth getting involved in around finally.

Do you need a player list?

Not really,  I am quite confident SJ can field 5 pilots.
But if you can't for some reason and need to bring in pubbers, list them beforehand or else you can't use them and will have to field less than five.

I missed the last match due to RL and will make this one. Add me to the Adhoc list until more CHH come back.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 13, 2012, 09:22:40 PM
There technically isn't an Ad hoc list so to speak.

Its on you to put yourself out there or try to put together a team.

Let me check with the Ranger collective, but I'd be surprised if we couldn't scrape a team together.

Gotcha. Anyone starting an Ad hoc. PM me if you need another player. I blow-up like a 12th and I am a pretty good shot.

Post by: Sesambrot on February 15, 2012, 01:07:55 AM
I'd be joining if anyone had an empty slot.
However, considering there might be more lone players out there, would a "random merc unit" be allowed to participate?

EDIT: scratch that, just went over the rules, might be a little much trouble getting random people that organized....

Greetings!

If there will be a non-affiliated(Joe) team, I would gladly join them.

But, if anyone needs one more player, let me know (the teams which already signed up have many members, so it's quite unlikely, but who knows)
I probably will have some free time to play some matches.

Anyway, good hunting!
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: CHHš Deathshade on February 17, 2012, 11:24:47 PM
We need someone to rally the unaffiliated players.  ;D

Post by: Terragent on February 18, 2012, 05:15:49 AM
Another unaffiliated one here - I'd love to be part of an ad hoc team (or fill the numbers for an existing one, whatever...) - this sounds fun!
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: Quintilian on February 18, 2012, 10:04:40 AM
I am going to provisionally put Purplefluffybunny (myself) forwards as a merc/independent. I say provisional as CJW may decide to enter but I doubt they will.

Ivaan old buddy! I would love to be in an independent unit with you and you taking the lead! I am pretty sure we can use the CJW TS3 server to communicate for this purpose if you lack such a facility.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: CHHš Deathshade on February 18, 2012, 03:32:17 PM
Count me in. We will stomp on the foes that hate bunnies, horses, ponies and C.R.A.P.  -- or is that mechs that step in C.R.A.P  :o







I am a US player and availability for weekends and weekday afternoons.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: Quintilian on February 18, 2012, 05:08:41 PM
OK provisionally the following merc team is forming; Purplefluffybunny, Deathshade, sheffer, Sesambrot, Rad Hanzo (a maybe), Ivaan (a maybe)
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: Ivaan on February 20, 2012, 12:58:38 PM

If this merc team is going to happen, I'm in!

But I should be the last option for leadership  ;)


I'm in GMT+1 time zone, by the way.
I often have some issues with my free time, but who doesn't. So, probably I can find some time for a few matches    :)
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: Quintilian on February 20, 2012, 03:53:55 PM
So far the merc team has the following people confirmed; Ivaan, Purplefluffybunny, Deathshade, theSneak ans sheffer.

I am trying to work on getting a couple more so will update when I know.

Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 21, 2012, 01:01:48 AM
All of you should dump into the same unit until there is about 8 of you so you can be as flexible as possible in scheduling.

Also, please give me a team name and team captain(for me to communicate with), and I will put the team on the list.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.

Post by: ELH_AIMB on February 22, 2012, 05:35:21 AM
May be we make 2 group with 3 teams each. In each group all play vs all. One team with the best win/lose ratio from 2 groups goes to play for 1st or 2nd places. Two second teams goes play for 3rd place. If someone have win/lose ratio 1/1 or if all teams in group have 1/1 they goes to play again, but best of 1 or best of 3. Think about it.
8 teams ofcourse will be better!
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 22, 2012, 05:36:36 AM
Double elimination 6 team is perfectly possible, two teams will just have to wait till round 2 to enter.

I'm pretty sure though that even though they get to "skip" the first round it really doesn't matter much as everyone has to lose twice to be truly out.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 22, 2012, 05:21:23 PM
Pushing the sign up deadline to the 24th for now to see if we get one more team.

Post by: Ivaan on February 22, 2012, 06:38:29 PM

Confirmed members:
1, Bloodycrow
2, CHHs Deathshade
3, Quintilian
4, sheffer
5, TheSneak
6, Ivaan

We have no final teamname and no leader yet, but  please consider us officially signed up!  ;)

Crap, I missed this. Probably won't happen since we'd need another 2 teams now for it to be even, but if anyone is thinking about making another merc team then I'll be up for that.

Also, I gave your merc team a name bunny. :>

I would be really interested in this but I have only started playing!

So someone would have to pick me up along the way. Also, what time and when does the tournament start?

Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 24, 2012, 01:01:38 AM
The tourny will run through the month of march, so it techincally starts march 1st. As soon as we have all 8 teams I will start the scheduling thread.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: Quintilian on February 24, 2012, 01:28:30 AM
For the merc team already listed  we are adding a 7th player to the official list just in case we have people that can't make it i.e. reserve list. This player is Rad Hanzo.

1. Rajveer
2. Bruno_007
3. Zyllos
4. Terragent
5. Dhalrin
6. Armitage
7. OldWateley

@team: Does anybody want to volunteer to be the team lead? If not I'll take on the roll but if somebody does want to, go for it! Also I'm away until early next week so may be a bit quiet over the weekend, but I'll have a think about a good way for us to communicate rather than forum PMs.

Woah, wait I missed this.

So then we have two options.

Either we now wait for a 10th team, or the two merc teams merge.

Post by: Rajveer on February 25, 2012, 03:25:57 AM
It's not fair for the first merc team if we merge, so unless another few players make a third merc team then we have to forfeit.
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 25, 2012, 03:56:31 AM
Trying to get another team to sign up. :X

Glad the lancers finally heard about the tourny though.

Merging the merc teams should be done if we don't have a 10th team by monday.

The first set of pilots can take precedence but remember that there will be up to 6 rounds and you will be trying to schedule with teams from all over the world so it may be best to try and have some extra reserves.

Post by: Quintilian on February 25, 2012, 02:24:52 PM

Erm, no. Sorry to be abrupt but we have been organising over this week and to merge the teams would mean not even half the players will get a match.

In addition it also means it will be impossible for all of us to get some practice together. Either stick with your initial plan of dropping last team joining or give a team a by to the second round as you also suggest.

My vote is to give a by to a team, and the Sneak is right the name for our team should be The Dominoes.

p.s.

we have 2 reserves currently

p.p.s

Failing the above options can I suggest a universal reserve list that all can draw from should the need arise?
Title: Re: Knights Grand Tourny Singups.
Post by: xInVicTuSx on February 26, 2012, 09:17:28 AM
So be it.

If monday there is no tenth team the second merc team will be removed as the post of the complete team was after the Illician lancers post.

Actually I have a better idea.

A single qualifier round can take place on one of the first days of the tournament between the last two entries for the 8th spot.

Thus is by Monday we have no 10th team, the Lancers and Second Merc team will fight it out for the 8th spot. (note: the NRV rule will reset upon them entering the tournament!)
