stevens > hekko? =) good luck

one thing i've been talking about for a while is the bo20 format, the match can be decided quickly - maybe first to something?

FT 20 is too long, first to 15 seems to be a good option I think

anywhere between ft11 and ft15 seems okay for the small player counts

Okay thankyou, will consider it, either way it will be a BO not FT. Want the option to draw for the Group stages, so maybe BO 16?

Do you Agree to all of the Rules?: Yup

Thanks for letting 18e test out the maps!

BO16 sounds too short.. Just do FT15.

well the reason i'm saying it isn't about the number but the BO format itself, i don't think it really allows that comeback mentality because someone would get 11 rounds in a bo20 and you would get back to 9 finishing 11:9 and what then, it could've been a ft15 like most every tournament in this community - i think FT formats make the match seem like more of a chase but also with the ability to claw back, whereas bo20 would be quickly decided too

(sorry this is just wokeup typing)

I agree with Fwuffy, once a team gets to 11 rounds, theres no incentive for the opposite team to try. "Oh well we already lost"

FT15 isn't crazy long and gives the option for awesome comebacks.

Ft15 is the most balanced and competitive format atm

Fuck it, been looking forward to a tournament that I can really take seriously again.

Why should you be Captain?: Have been a part of GB for a while now. I know the players and I hope most of them know me. Captained alot of teams and lead my own regiment for 5+ years total. Giving me alot of experience. I have been looking forward to Herc posting this thread so that I had a tournament I could really get stuck into. I already have a good idea of a team so hope the boys in GB support me again.
Spoiler
Even though I feel like my run in 2016 for M-NWWC wasn't really the best (Even though we finished 2nd), I feel like it was partially down to some players who I had never even met, telling people not to bother trying out for GB, claiming it was going to be a team of 18e players, which it wasn't. Just me and Hepty (who was forced into the team by the organisers!) Which was just sad at the end of the day because the people who did go had a blast in the tourney, Myself, Herishey, Jammo, Maurice etc.

There's always going to be people that don't like me and vice versa, same with any Captain, but at the end of the day I am actually committed to having a good season. That should matter more than some silly peoples opinion. Put the nation first lads! make GB 1st place again! You all know who you are!

Also with regards to last year signing up as Iceland, we weren't accepted until less than a week before the tournament was meant to start. That was not enough time to build an actual team of Icelandic's to 10 players from the 3 I had (So we didn't even take part)
