They are not at fault for gaming the system.

I have yet to see Cube Wars so far in the Team Play Tourney. Its actually a really good map for teams. Please, can we try it for a few?

Cheers.

But I think the real problem is that we have too many different teams. This also makes it tough to have multiple rooms open at once.

So... the 1 or 2 bottom human team at the end of this tournament is going to get disbanded! Their members spread on the wind of other teams. Fight for your life teams!!!
Instead of disbanding the losing teams why not add more teams and open another host for us to battle on? As it is I had a very hard time playing yesterday since the 10M's weren't online at the same time where as the other teams MFS, SED, & AND had plenty of team members on hand to play games. There are 7 teams in total; 6 if you discount the robot team. Why not add 2 more New teams and open a new host? the room was overflowing with players all night and day as high as 28 people at one time...

agreed on that.....crazy. we won a load of games yesterday against bots when we had 3 in room. these have not counted. a bit unfair me thinks. where is the level playing field.

I have removed all 3v3 games from the team rankings results. I don't think it's fair to mix 3v3 games in with the majority of 2v2v2 games. Let me know if I missed any.

RW = Raw Whores, a Team, very inactive and may not hit 50 games.

Anyway, I think lessening the teams is a great idea.
Naraku -- The RAW whores can't even play. Poor BWE and Mnemosyne are left out, along with others. Another room wouldn't help any besides those with tons of players! The extra room was needed when the room was near 30 players (26/29 was highest I saw)

We need the weakest team to be disbanded, such inactive participation is hurting other teams. MFS has a TON of players -- They're always in, always racking up points. At most I've seen 5 AND members together at once, for only a short period of time. MFS and SED want more rooms b/c there are so many, which is okay, but if it isn't leveled out it isn't too cool.

And Glad to know 3v3 = Gone

Weak? If pulling down two 1st place finishes and one 3rd in three years makes a team weak, then okay. I have not had time to play all weekend, and the rest of the returning members are AFK as well. Kinda harsh to just throw it all away.

Maybe it's time to put all the existing teams on the shelf considering almost all the founding members are not around anymore, and start fresh with all new teams, in some form or fashion.

starting new teams would be a good idea but... wouldn't this just be the same problem again next year just with new names... I think there should be new teams every year. sorta like they do with survivor. sign up 6 teams with 6 members then just add more as they join.

Weak?
Nah Drifter -- I mean it like... The Weakest time like the one without participation, which obviously makes them Weak because they can't get to 50 Games -- Robots were beating RW for a while :p

Maybe its b/c of no time, but the inactive participation clearly means there's at least one too much team. RW members have barely played and sometimes because of imbalanced teams its MFS VS SED VS LCS, always.
They've got more active members, I understand you didn't have time to play but if your entire team doesn't have time to play enough to get anywhere in the rankings its better to have them in a spot that another team can benefit -- along with those wanting to play on the smaller team.

New teams would be nice, too. Even though it sounded cool to be an AND member forever. I like my team even if we have our suck-moments :P

To tell you the truth, I came in to try and get in a few games but every time I was around the RW's got shuffled out so I figured I'd take my shuffle luck elsewhere and hope other could get in.

The chances are less. You three RW's are against like 8 MFS, Lol.
We need a new room at least.

Just giving my opinion. You don't think it sucks that some of the people can't play?

Julius Caesar proclaimed: Veni, Vidi, Vici (I came, I saw, I conquered). He didn't see first, then conquered, then came. You can't see or conquer something without first coming there. Not unless you are from Star Trek and have time traveled. If so, then that's not fair either and maybe Dustin should delete all your wins.

Congrats, tho.

LOL Claudiu, that did make me chuckle. I thought the team name 'Sedction' would have been a hint :P
