    The F16 World Cup cycle will begin in earnest tomorrow, when we open the Heritage Team Claims process. Information and instructions are in that thread. The next week, (11/11) we will release the World Cup draft order, as determined by Broncos218 set of metrics based on past results. A week later (11/18) the draft will commence. The first pair of qualifiers are scheduled to be played 12/16, a week before Christmas.

    As many of you know, this is a 32-team tournament. The 4 people who sit out serve as cover for drops during the cycle. As the newest members of the league, Llad72 shootah66 and Macri will take 3 of those places. Jugster has volunteered to be the 4th

    KnightNoles wSeals9 and Zikry have earned the right to keep their teams from last season as the top 3 finishers in the F15 World Cup if they so choose (just let us know before the draft starts). Everyone else has been fired from their national team duties, and must select a different team in the upcoming draft.

    The (F16) TSL World Cup draft order will be released later today. The actual draft process will not start until next Wednesday (11/18).

    For the sake of comparison, here is last cycle's draft order and results:

    REMINDER - You cannot select the same team this time as you did last time, unless you have submitted a Heritage Claim or finished in the top 3 last cycle.

    World Cup Schedule
    November 18: TSL World Cup Draft

    March 2-9: Qualification Matchdays 3 & 4
    May 18-25: Qualification Matchdays 5 & 6

    There are 3 regions of qualification: European (16 Teams), Africa/Asia (8 Teams), and Americas (8 Teams). Once the allotment of teams has been reached, managers will no longer be able to select teams from that region. Because Africa/Asia is less than strong, 5 European teams have been moved there to compensate. Those nations are Turkey, Russia, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

    All of the top finishers from last season have decided to keep their teams:
    KnightNoles - Czech Republic
    wSeals9 - Cote d'Ivoire
    Zikry - Egypt

    The following Heritage Claims have been approved:
    BESHIKTAS - Turkey
    dave okeeffe - Ireland
    Feverpitch57 - Argentina
    BigBeansMcGee - England
    Lou - Italy
    guayo10 - Brazil

    That said, here are the regions pre-draft (teams in gray = unlicensed):

    Jugster will take over as Argentina, and Calhockey10 will take Peru instead of Canada. abolishthefed go ahead and wipe the old results from the sheet. Jugs and Cal, you are free to play your first two games as soon as possible.

    For those already eliminated or facing elimination- if someone above you drops from TSL before that start of the World Cup in a few months, you will have a chance to sneak in. And I'll be cleaning up the WC rules shortly to exapnd on other details, such as what happends when 3 teams from a group drop out (basically best 3rd-place team from other group within same region would qualify).

    In other words, for those that think they have nothing to play for, it might be wise to still give it your all this week in hopes of still making the WC cut!

    A few rule reminders as World Cup play has now begun...
    • Just like in the TSL Cup (and real-life WC), the number of yellow cards a player has resets to 0 following the Quarterfinals. This ensures that a player will only miss the Final if he were to receive a red card in the Semifinals.
    • Group tiebreakers will follow the same procedures as the TSL Cup (H2H first, then group GD). There are no goal limits in group play!
    • Unlike the TSL Cup, if a knockout match remains tied after 90 minutes, proceed immediately to a golden goal match (not a full second leg). You MUST begin the golden goal match with the same players/subs you ended with the previous game.
    And post your top goals here!
