    With a partner declared on team 8 we will be ready to launch. I'll post updates here and direct message participants with links to their games.
    No F15 or Sannheten? Even though I declared my partner before Linearcurve posted? Or General, for that matter?

    Whoops! Oversight on my part! I'll fix that.

    We filled our 8 team quota with interest left over. To make the format work, group stage needs 4 teams each and we need an even number of groups (8 or 16 teams total). Would anybody be opposed to expanding the tournament to 16 teams? Total duration should remain the same, as games take place in parallel. If we stick to 8 teams, we will launch today.

    Alternatively we can expand to groups of five, but that will increase tournament duration by a few weeks, something I'd like to avoid.

    Current teams:
    1. Tapeworm + Bearnecessities
    2. Engel + Ndrm
    3. Riskyone + Roscokov
    4. Th-Child + dorcee
    5. Ironztiger + StJude
    6. Hortik + haWD
    7. Cardinalsrule + TheGeneral
    8. Sannheten + F15

    Bonus teams:
    9. Linearcurve + Luiscasanova
    10. Engineerairborne + Norbs

    I'm ok with expanding to 16, or leaving it at 10 teams. As long as everyone who wants to play gets to play.

    Maybe give it a few more days and see if there are others, if not start it with 10, or 12, however many we have?

    Sounds good, Cardinal. Sign ups will officially close on Wednesday, 11/14/18 at 8 pm Eastern (-5 GMT) . I can make it work with 10, 12, 15 or 16 teams by using wild cards out of group stage. 11, 13, and14 teams will not work, so the last teams to apply will be excluded to make our target numbers.

    I'm fine with expanding. I think any even number should work? For example with 10 teams we can just do top 2 out of each group. With 12 do top 3 with first place getting a bye in the elimination round?

    Just some thoughts.

    I am perfectly fine with expanding the amount of teams. The interest this has drawn in this relatively short of time is a very good thing.

    Good work, Bear.
