Registration is over, we have perfect number of players to form 3 groups of 6.
Expect groups distribution soon!

Allright :)

We can also form groups of 6 in the second phase, which would give everybody 10 games. That's a nice amount ;)

IMHO, 3 groups of 6 now works better. It means skill plays a big role. Too few games in the first phase implies the final ranking will be too much affected by the magic word "luck".

You can have 3 groups of 6 now, lets say A,B,C and than in the second phase, you could have also three groups:
Gold = A1,A2,B1,B2,C1,C2
Silver = A3,A4,B3,B4,C3,C4
Bronze = A5,A6,B5,B6,C5,C6

That might be a good idea. Let's see if MrNumbers decides to adopt it.

Interesting idea. I also often was frustrated by the fact that one loss could not let you take the first place overall. Maybe I will bring it for voting.

Competition is live!
As it was before, groups are distributed according to current Elo rating. There is only one new player this time.
Group names aren't boring A, B & C, but based on included expansions: Fliers, Goldminers and Wizards.
Fliers: MrNumbers, Leven, danisthirty, thodekey, Chooselife, Rosco.
Goldminers: Merlin_89, khalidqasrawi, JoeSesquipedalian, Piet_Agoras, DeatzoSeol, ny1050220.
Wizards: Jéré, jma03, What If?, Adrornalin, TheSteveAllen, Singing Dwarf.

Let's roll! 8)

Only 2 games played in the first 2 weeks... this must be the slowest start in the history of Carc Central... (!)

Sending private messages to your opponents with your availability and a proposal of date/time for your game works best!

Sorry, for the hold up! I've just played my first match against Chooselife...

I think the fact that we're playing with a mixture of expansions that many people don't have a lot of experience with means that some people probably feel a bit daunted about launching into it in the same way as they might for a league based on any of the major expansions that we all know and love so well. Plus, it can be a bit tricky getting any decent practice in with these expansions as even Adda won't play them! I think things should speed up a bit once everyone knows what they're doing a bit...
