    Well it looks like the tourney is expanding so if you want in make a post and I'll add you to the list. Format is TBD after number of entries are assessed. The games will be revealed on Friday.

    To those not in the MLS League please take FMF teams first, if needed we will expand into Scandinavia an European lower leagues but I'd prefer to have it as north American as possible. If you want to download a Sparissa or Marathon,or any other conacaf team, from the creation center those teams will also be strongly encouraged.

    I was basing it off the actual event we had last year out here in Seattle but if there's interest for a league wide preseason tournament I'll gladly run something for everyone.

    And yes cascadia is essentially a fancy term for the PacNW it's like the deep south or midwest. It's just a distinct region o the country that shares a culture. Also a proposed country if there ever was a rash of successions from the USA.

    With more then 3 teams I'll probably just start it Friday and have it be a week or two week long thing.

    Nice, that's 6 teams.

    This number would be perfect to try and bang some quick brackets out on Friday night. The lady is out for the night and I got noting but time, and beer, too!

    All MLS affiliated events should be played on manual/slow. Custom rosters, not online rosters.

    No teams from the Dirty, Chicago's spoken for, so I'll take a Mexican team. I have a Club America lighter, so I'll take them.

    It'll probably be a weekend tournament. Possibly a week long tourny if we get more people.

    What time we kicking off tomorrow night? What's the format? Can we firm up the members who are on the list to see if we Can run this as a Friday night special or multi-day event?

    I think we'll run it with 8 people since we have 7 and I'm hoping at least one more addition, I'll post the groups for that once we get another participant. Hammerhead said he won't be able to play friday so it will probably be a weekend deal, but the group stage means you cans still play 2 games on friday night. The format is going to be a group stage and double elimination knock-out. It's a bit of an odd format but I think it will work out well.

    4 Teams in Group A, 4 Teams in Group B = Top 2 from each go directly to winners bracket, Bottom 2 go to losers bracket.
    (Winners Bracket)-Losers go to Losers Bracket
    (1)1A
    2B
    (5)Winners of games 1 and 2 play winner goes to final
    (2)1B
    2A
    (9)/(10) Winners of games 5 and 8 will play. In order to win the tournament the loser's bracket team must win 2 games in a row.
    (Losers Bracket)-Losers are Out
    (3)3A (6) Loser of game 1 plays winner of game 3
    4B (8) Winners of games 6 and 7 play to go to final

    (4)3B (7) Loser of game 2 plays winner of game 4
    4A

    Edit** The formatting of that came out wrong. So I'll explain with words instead of trying to draw a bracket.

    Winners Bracket
    1A will play 2B and 1B will play 2A, the winners of those two games will then play with the winner advancing to the final.

    Losers Bracket
    3A will play 4B and 3B will play 4A, losers are out of the tournament.

    The winners of the Losers Bracket first round games will play the Losers of the first round of winners Bracket games. The winners of that game will play each other to determin who will go to the finals

    Finals
    The team who has yet to lose in the knock-out round must lose twice in the final, so if 1A wins it's first 2 games and 4B makes the finals 4B will have to beat 1 twice to win the title.

    Yeah don't think this is going to be a one night special. Only way that was going to happen was with a 3 team round robin which this tournament was originally only supposed to be for Seattle,Portland, and Vancouver.

    Come on guys looks like we need 2 more for my arcane tournament to take shape. We can go to a normal group/knockout or a straight double elim if people want something more normal to play in.
