    Everyone needs to re-read all of the stickied threads at the top of this forum ASAP and make sure that the timeline and the new format makes sense.

    I would give a cliffs notes but people couldn't understand it the first go around, so maybe it's better if you actually go read the full version.

    You don't HAVE to confirm that you did this, but seriously, ask some questions if you have them. Don't assume - you really do make an ass out of yourself, as well as me.

    Thank you. [​IMG]

    ALSO... and this is pretty important. If anyone (NIU) does the groups themselves... please DO NOT POST them publicly. PM them to me so that tomorrow night I can double check and post about it and open up the first group stage at the same time. My reasoning for this is that I want to open the first group week at the same time so that people don't start playing their games before I can do that. You guys can still speculate and all that stuff in the other thread, but please don't post the exact groups. Thanks!

    If a match is tied on aggregate and away goals... how are we doing ET and penalties? Say the home team won each game 2-1. It should go to ET, but the game wouldn't let us. Should we play a new game with 3 or 4 minute halves to do it?

    Good point. I would say that a new game with 4 minute halves is a good idea.

    Thoughts from everyone else?

    I think 4 minute halves works. But to make sure the same team that hosted the second game hosts OT since a 1-1 tie out of the ET game would advance the away team without having to go to penalties (or any draw that is not scoreless)

    Oh and make some rules about subs and all that too. Like, you must play with the team you had out at the end of the last match and you only get 3 minus the number of subs you already made for ET.

    Tough to enforce, but I think with this group people will hold to that. I'll wait for everyone else to weigh in but I like that idea as well.

    I think the seeding for the round of 8 should go as follows as opposed to random,

    A winner vs. D runner up
    B Winner vs. C runner Up
    C Winner vs. B Runner Up
    D Winner vs. A runner up.

    Round 2 is winner of game 1 vs winner of game 2

    Final is the final.

    I think we wanna mock the true Champions League the best we can. Plus the excitement of a random draw has me on the edge of my seat and we haven't even started group play yet lol

    I also wonder if it would be best once knockout stages hit if we should do two legs (home & home).. Just a thought, no biggie if we don't but it could add some more games and excitement to the tourney.
