Grouping and teaming for Tremulous Tournament
Nice thing about Tremulous is that we have 7 confirmed clans in (hopefully 1 more of the 4 rest will confirm in reasonable time too) because we can assume they're experienced players. A bit tricky thing about Tremulous though is that we have 17 confirmed sole players which are yet to be teamed up, some of which are probably much more experienced than the others, and they have a sort of a disadvantage due to the fact they're just being formed for this tourney.
So let's see what we've got. These are the currently confirmed existing clans:
- -Camperz- / -CZ-
These are the currently confirmed individual players:
Ok, so now the idea is this. First of all ideally each team should have all its members from the same continent. Starting with Asia where we have least players from this would definitely mean reptiler and Amanieu should be in the same team, but for it to be complete we need 3 more players from Asia to join them.
Second thing to strive for is to have at least one more experienced team player in each team, someone who can basically serve as their leader helping them make a better stand against existing clans (note that I'm making no claim that just because they already exist the existing clan must always be stronger than whatever combination we come up with here).
As for grouping I think this should be less of an issue than in some games, although this may be because I have less insight into how strong each of the teams would be here. I think, if we could come up with at least 4 teams before saturday evening GMT, we can have first qualification matches in that group. We can then group the rest afterwards until everyone is lined up.
