Adders --

If you're definitely interested in competing in the 2017 MWOWC, or are certain you will not be, please indicate on the poll.

The tournament will likely run with a comp queue, starting late June or early July and culminate with a regional round robin in late September/Early October.

The regional finalists would then fly to Vancouver for the 9th of December finals at MechCon.

Rosters are limited to 12-man teams, fighting 8v8 format.

No other information is available yet, but will add once we know.

That being said, if you're uncertain on whether you will or can commit to a WC team, PLEASE don't vote until you make up your mind.

Thanks.

Also, as with MRBC, need to know who would be willing to DC/team captain for a WC crew.

Schedule will not permit the time needed for practice nor matches so will bow out. Perhaps in the future.

Thanks Anubis.

I'm signing up, but it's contingent on the substitution rule remaining "open" over the course of the qualifiers. If it's not, I'll be a detriment to any team and I'll step down.

TEAM!

Season apparently kicks off bright and early after the patch goes live on the 20th.

Would like to fill our teams ASAP!

If you're on the fence, haven't yet committed yea/nay, this weekend is the time to do so!

Sign up (even a NO is extremely helpful).

I voted 'yes', but by default the anonymous was ticked. For me there are some caveats that we will have to consider, as I have some issues (3 accounts) that limit my performance options on a limited roster. However for the moment I say yes.

Not going to lie, utilizing three slots for one player is semi problematic.

Also, once we're queued in (not knowing the map banning stage yet) means we have to pre-select which account to take in, which will limit you a bit. Probably best to decide on the best of the three and play those mechs/roles available to you.

Yep I unfortunately agree, this is what I will end up doing.

Maybe customer service will be more sympathetic this time around. I'd love to have two accounts merged ;)

Looks like we will definitely have to field two teams.

Gang,

By my count we already have 20 interested players.

If you see folks ingame/in TS that have not signed up yea/nay, please ask them to hit up this thread at their earliest convenience.

Patch hits Tuesday and I'm out of town Tuesday until Friday. While there will be this sense of urgency to form the teams, I believe we don't actually need to rush into this. Would prefer to iron out squads before doing sign ups and having some conversation about this with folks in TS etc. Also, might work to our benefit by waiting a few days to form up. Elo is based on winning against quality opponents, not grinding a high volume of matches, so rushing into the queue haphazardly isn't necessary.

Also, there's a significant community movement afoot to promote a secondary "bowl system" with PGI so that teams that don't make it into the top 12, or know they have no business competing for a top 12 slot still have an incentive to join the queue and to play. So, once the top 12 are found and go off to do the bracket, the remaining teams are divided into some sort of division and compete for minor prizes, mc, prem time, mechbays, bragging rights etc.

So being a less experience comp team that doesn't think they have a chance against Emp, BW, SJR, Oz, D5, EON, 9STS, VETO etc still has a reason to compete and have some fun with this. So if the above was why you were on the fence about joining in, I'd argue, you're missing out on a good time.

Minus the grind, we had a great time last season and knew going in we were extremely unlikely to make it far.....turned out we made it to just shy of the regional tourney (7th place in NA, not too shabby).

Is anyone interested in team-captaining the 2nd team? I'm not taking necessarily just anyone who volunteers, but need to know the pool of applicants so to speak.

Could use feedback from:

Soba
Adrena
thehiddenedge
Meowzz
TigerHD
Vulkanis
LeMaudit
Vida
Wyrm
Nickredace
Unf0
Myantra
Kalam


I'm guessing the following members are not interested (not big forum users or are only playing extremely casually) but just tossing it out there:

Mensch
J0anna
Osis
Martis
Merroc
VTTimber
colldan
Peacefrog
Willman
Pappy
Wiz
Tbyrd
Kreigore
Unmitigated
Luminaye
shadowson
Tsig
Bluefawks
Frakbait
Dougie

And of our course any of our unvoted Sibkin are still eligible to throw their name in the ring.

You can take Wyrm off the list for the most part. I have told him numerous time he HAS to come to the website and participate, he refuses so i will take that as a no.


I am tired of chasing peeps, if you dont come here and get the info for yourself then tough titties.
