    TF Tournament - Team Discussion

    All, there are two options I'm proposing for determining what teams people use. They are:

    1. Everyone chooses a B+ or lower rated team (I will provide a list of teams), with multiple people using the same team allowed.
    2. Based up seeding, each participant selects a team with all teams available. Lowest seeds will have first choice, with the higher seeds choosing last. Multiple people using the same team not allowed.

    In either case, the team you choose will be the team you use for the entire tournament.

    Please vote in this poll. Voting will close sometime Saturday night.

    I rather every1 have a different team. If every1 uses different teams, then will the teams still be B+ or lower teams?

    I went with the 2nd choice. I'd rather everyone pick different teams, with the lower seeds picking first. Seems pretty fair. Also, a game with 2 users playing with the same team is kinda lame.

    Also what about rosters? Haven't played a regular online lobby game in a long time so I don't know how the rosters are used for them.

    If we go with the option of picking teams in reverse order of the seeds, then all teams would be open. In other words, the lowest seed could select Florida, and then Florida would not be available for anyone else to use.

    I have a set of named rosters that we will use. Everyone will need to upload them and the home team in each game will need to load the rosters prior to inviting their opponent to play.

    I definitely don't think a team should be available to more than one user.

    I agree. Michigan vs. Michigan would be extra lame.

    I lose.

    I just don't find it particularly fair if two people, evenly skilled, play their game and one is USC and the other is Cinci.

    The concept behind doing seeds and having lower seeds get better teams implies that a player seeded #1 and #16 are not evenly skilled. I'm getting data from shaunlmason from the rankings to help with the seeds, but as we all know there are people here who rarely lose their user games (noles and hova come to mind) and those that lose almost all of them (won't name names to protect the innocent). I think that giving the players who have proven that they aren't as good at the game a better team gives the little guy (so to speak) a fighting chance.

    I agree....it will make it more fun for all participants instead of making it more fun for just the top 10 or whatever.

    Those of you who chose option #1 will need to do some campaigning with the people who haven't responded yet. Option #2 is winning 15-3 currently with about half the group responding.

    More than half the group has elected option #2, so that will be what we will go with. Sometime tomorrow I will post a thread with the list of participants and the seeds, and we will then commence with team selections.

    The parody is not that great on TF. The lower seeds will have a huge advantage IMO
