NAF Team Challenge

The NTC is GO! Follow live scoring!

*****

The second Online NAF tournament of 2016 will be our first fully team-centric event! The World Cup Warm up featured a team challenge element, and it proved to be so popular that this time, teamwork will be the star of the show.

The structure of the tournament will be similar to past online NAF events - 5 rounds of Swiss will be played in (approximately) 30 team groups individually. The teams with the best combined scores will then advance into team v team playoffs.

Looking for a team? Check out our matchmaking thread. Teams should consist of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 coaches. A team captain should be nominated, and he / she needs to follow the instructions in the scoring thread.

In the event you'd like to participate in the NTC as a lone wolf, you're of course more than welcome!

Cheers!

Phil / Goo.

I've updated the OP with all of the relevant information and links. Applications are open NOW, so get going! We kick off on the 4th of April. Smile

Expect front page coverage soon, and the hype train to pull into your station. Wink

The rulespack has been updated with the following information:

• Teams must intend to play games with a minimum of 11 players. For those that are allowed, this may include Stars (e.g. you may build a team of 10 ‘rostered’ players and induce a Star for 11)

o Should teams play that have both induced the same Star, the Star will play for both teams

I will accept the first group of applicants to the various groups on Monday, so please don't panic if you've applied but don't yet see yourself in a group.

Do the double skills have to be doubles, or can they be normals? The tool allows normal choices. Apologies if I've missed it.

You can take normals if you wish.

I'm confused.
Aren't you the one who's making the rules?

All currently applied teams accepted.

6 days of signups to go, and we already have 10 teams declared for the NTC. Strong stuff! Of course, you can apply as a lone wolf, but to look for a team, see the OP for all of the important information.

If you sign up before the weekend, the chances are (no guarantees) that I'll have chance to check your submission and let you know if there is a problem. You'd be surprised how many issues I catch, so it's always worth getting in early to get a second pair of eyes looking over your work.

Get applying, can't wait!

Another round of team acceptance complete. I smile every time I pop by the Oceanic group; they do a great job of panicking me every time and then all signing up with 4 hours to go. Wink

Particularly happy to see The Titchy & Stunty Show sign up, they have two spots going, get on there! Also great to see Team America, we can all hum the tune now. Smile

14 teams and (no doubt) some lone wolves signed up so far. Come one, come all, four days or so to get in on the action. Remember saying you're on a team is all well and good, you also actually have to physically sign up. I'm poking the captains with that information via PM, but consider this a mass poking. Or something.

The Titchy & Stunty show was mobbed with 2 additional applicants so the team is now full, feel free to setup a rival stunty team though, we can fight for the wooden spoon!

All right now!

I've done another mass accept of submitted teams. I have 16 signed up teams and ~75 applicants. My mental arithmetic isn't great, but I think I'm expecting some more. Get 'em in! Razz

One thing to remember - it has already tripped someone up: depending on what tier your race is, it may not have access to Induced Star Players. All things are revealed in the rules, so go check if you're unsure.

72 hours or so to go! Very Happy

Sorry, I read the rules in Finnish and Google translate must have screwed something up. I failed to realise the 5 skills were 'free' and I short changed my elf team by 160'000 gold. I think. My advisors also speak Finnish. So I'm not 100% on anything. Should I nuke my team?

Yeah, probably nuke and start again. The skills are free, spend all of the money (if you're Woodies, you can save cash for Bribes or Babes if you choose, but for nothing more).

Apologies that we only produce rules in English. In the fullness of time, I'd like to look at that.

A PM I got last night:

Do I submit for myself, or is it my captain that does that?

I keep saying it: EVERYONE has to sign up themselves. I'll say it over and over, and hope that we don't have too many miss out.

Cheers!
