If you are in the top 200 and are interested in being a part of the Nation's Cup, please sign up on this thread. Even if you played last year please sign up here anyway so we know you are interested this year. Even if you have already been in contact with me this year, please sign up anyway so that we have it all on one page (easier to keep it organized).

So, if you want to play, do 2 things: 1.) Sign up on this thread and 2.) PM me your current email address (if you have already done this THIS YEAR you don't need to do it again).

Those of you who played last year know how much time can be involved, but you don't necessarily have to be available every week, as long as you think you will be available most of the time. As soon as we know who is interested and Bassie makes a decision on number of clashes per match, we will decide whether to form a Team-2 or even a Team-3. If you are interested in captaining a Team-2, please PM me.

So, if you are on the above list, consider it an invitation to be a part of this thing.



Best,
SKM

Okay, I came up with the list, might as well go first. Happy to be on USA-I or USA-II. With respect to the list, it is probably not complete. If I left you off, please holler.

Isn't it months away?

By that time I might not be in the top 200!

If I'm still playing then, I'm interested.

I gotta go out and buy another DoW game to get more online time credit!

Hi all,

If there's room for a "bottom feeder," I'd like to join in as well. Thanks.

OK so far we have:

thekid
Drakestorm
SKMorefield
psteinx
tprail
ElSoyokaze
Wildfire2099
Zeno
scorps

Total of 9, all top 100. That's a good group, but I don't see why we can't have 2 teams.

I'd still love to hear from players like calif, bryanandmb, and some others like msande and onyx (who became a dreaded 'guest' for some reason Confused ) who were on the team last year.

I think we need at least 3-5 more players to have 2 teams. With 9 on one team, even with 5 spots playing time would be at a premium.

I'd be glad to captain both teams (set the lineups, evenly distribute the teams, etc.) if that is allowable and if the 2 teams aren't set to play each other.

Only 1 month to go. Speak now (or soon!) or forever hold your peace.

If you have signed up and want to back out Laughing please let me know also.

Fear and Tremble little ones. The Baron is IN. When does this event start by the way? Razz

And do not worry "Captain" SKM The Baron will not need to put aside any "personality" to become a member of a team since any team The Baron is on will become The Baron's team. This is obvious, no?

The Baron will express gratitude that the American team has been willing to accept an Antartican onto the team. Antartica would have a team but it would be grossly unfair to do so to the other teams since The Baron would be the only player and therefore the other nations would have no real hope. Very Happy

The Baron will have to read more on this whole nations cup idea. The Baron has started at the beginning of the forum and is working The Baron's way towards current events. It is slow going slogging through such and of course The Baron cannot let interfere with more humiliating defeats of other players. (Plus the three Baronettes seem to be on the warpath lately.) Evil or Very Mad


Must get back to them, they are calling...

I have no idea what is going on with NC as we have not seen an Organizational Thread or any sort of TD announcement. Maybe we have no TD, in which case I say we should allow player TDs and if so I nominate Zeno, erps, or Bassie. Cool
Anyway...

Here is what we have so far, and current rank as I write this. I have not heard from a couple I would really like to have. I have even written them and have received no reply, so I have to assume this will be it. 12 players, that's 12 on 1 team and 4-5 players rarely even get to play, or 6 on 2 teams, and everyone plays.

That is the decision we need to make between now and the next couple of weeks. That, and how to stack the teams. Should we have the top 6 on 1 team and the bottom 6 on another? While of course this would NOT guarantee any sort of victory (despite my 'interview' Smile ) it might give us a better chance, plus give the lower ranked players less pressure and lower expectations. Who knows, they might pull off some surprises! It would be a good learning experience win or lose. Or, we could alternate and just see what happens.

I need to know where you stand on this, so please PM me unless you just have no opinion whatsoever.

I also need to know that each and every person on this list is COMMITTED to playing several games a week EVERY week from Sept to Nov. With 6 on a team, only 1 person a week can be off. If you plan to miss more than 2 weeks of this competition, please let us know now.

Honestly, I'd rather see the teams split into two, top six and bottom six, to give the United States the best chance at winning, at least by a numbers perspective. I realize that everyone on that list is good, so there wouldn't be a clear division of skill, but I'd still like America to put her best foot forward.

I also realize where that would put me... <_< >_> But after such a long inactivity streak I wouldn't exactly put my skill level at 1659.

All right, here we go. All the feedback I have gotten via post and PM is in favor of putting our best statistical team forward. Tentative teams:

USA Team 1

thekid
SKMorefield
psteinx
tprail
Drakestorm
calif*

(6 players, 10,393 points. Avg rating, 1732. Smile )

*calif replied to my PM and is going to consider joining. We'll cross our fingers!

USA Team 2

Would anyone like to captain Team 2? If nobody is interested I don't mind at all to do it...

ElSoyokaze
Wildfire2099
Kimber*
Zeno
Baron Von Schmidt
scorps
Tazilon

* Kimber can play on an 'as needed' basis if nobody else can, but it won't hurt her feelings at all if she doesn't make the lineup. She doesn't have very much time to play what with having another baby and all... Smile

Don't know if another USA team is being organized, but this sounds like too much fun to pass up. I used to be in the low 500s but after a rash of bad games I'm something closer to 1000 now.


Can I join anyone's team?

SKM, I would be willing to do an Underdog USA teram with not all top players if that would help.
I read through the rules, and note they do want people from the same country to play on same team.
So this would mean a third team would have to be organized, as I thik more than 6 players on a team is almost overkill

get back to me soon (do you still have my e-mail?)

Argh my message was deleted, so here I go again:

Onyx, please join either one of the existing US teams or organise a 3rd US team. Actually it's better to have at least 7 players per team, as to get 5 players each week availibe is not that easy as it sounds.
