Okay, PM's have been sent out to all captains and all teams. As soon as I get confirmations from all 16 teams that haven't already done so and answer any questions the captains may have, I'll announce the seedings and get this baby started :)

There are. As a captain who has already confirmed my team, I assume that 4 other captains have as well which would leave 16 who have not.

I confirmed my team even though the TD tried to avoid me and told everyone to #fuckghug.

As if the TD is the only person who tells everyone to #fuckghug.

Just a quick update! Waiting on two captains to respond before I can move forward and create the games. Hopefully this happens tomorrow, otherwise I may be delayed by March Madness haha.

Apologies. I did the seeding and was about to make a game, but we have a potential team dropping out now that I have to sort out.

Alrighty everyone, after a flurry of Sunday activity I have the seedings for the tournament. I did these based on a custom adjusted-GR that I came up with to make sure everyone's skill was appropriately accounted for (hence why it took longer), but these values should be viewed as similar to the overall GR scale.

And here they are!
  • Cascadia 470.28577
  • Greatest Lakes 369.07808
  • Team South 299.76003
  • California 254.03396
  • Great Britain 242.88803
  • East Coast 234.23356
  • Iberia 232.3676667
  • Kalmar Unionen 225.10368
  • Canada 197.93925
  • Portuguese Speakers 193.6108583
  • British Empire 168.487575
  • midBest 158.58027
  • Netherlands 133.919575
  • Commonwealth Secretariat 132.269275
  • Oceania 129.317675
  • Upper Mississippi 128.4871
  • Poland 127.4887
  • Team USA 120.353
  • East Europe 117.42994
  • Silicon Valley 110.28803
  • West Coast 76.18061
So, GR Ranking will give us the following seeding for the tournament:

First we have Group 1, led by the returning champions, Cascadia! Joining them will be Teams East Coast, Iberia, midBest, Netherlands, USA, and East Europe.

Second, we have Group 2, led by the most potent of challengers, Team Greatest Lakes! Joining them will be Teams Great Britain, Kalmar Unionen, British Empire, Commonwealth Secretariat, Poland, and Silicon Valley!

And finally, our third group will be led by Team South! Joining them will be Teams California, Canada, Portuguese Speakers, Oceania, Upper Mississippi, and West Coast.

I wish the best of luck to each and every one of you. Take some time to soak this in. I'll be making the games tonight and handing out the passwords to your team captains (as well as updating the tournament site to reflect these seedings)

goldfinger0303: "custom adjusted-GR that I came up with to make sure everyone's skill was appropriately accounted for"
I know that you're scarred from sharing a land border with me into the 21st Century, but isn't it a little bit uncalled for to boost only my GR and nobody else's?

Octavious: Yes! Iberia is back!
