some good suggestions soundboy!

I would HATE to see this tournament be lost.

CMON people! Sign up!

:)

(I guess the real reason is that they fear Team Virtue)

Personally i think this thread would get more notice and people signing up had it been placed in Luxtopia Forum.

many people don't look in the other forums.

my suggestion is move it there and after the tournament starts move it back in here.

Right ... 'cause a sticky announcement thread in this aptly named "Tournaments Forum" ... with ~2000 views and more than 60 replies ... isn't obvious enough ... nevermind in game chatter from team captains and players ...

∞ paranoiarodeo rolls his eyes ∞

I think Soundboy is spot on with his suggestions about loosening up the registration / participation requirements ... you guys gotta remember that Lux is suffering through a prolonged low point right now ... the late fall / early winter holiday season usually brings a bump / upswing in players and games ... but not this year ... Lux hasn't been this quiet since late 2005 / early 2006 ...

(Worse, we didn't have rapid fire two person high % biodeux games inflating game play stats back then.)

In other words ... shooting for the moon isn't gonna work ... it's probably best to scale things back ... be modest and more accommodating when planning / hosting events nowadays ... just my two cents ...

I agree with Enokrad. I didn't know this thread was even here until Soundboy sent me a message.

We will see if that attracts players.

i was asked by BANE captain Mazza to join his team, and i would be more then happy to do so.

and before you jump all over me about filling out the survey thing...
I wont.
if you guys need players and are worried about filling spots perhaps you should just let people join the teams they want without jumping through ridiculous hoops.

The ridiculous hoop you speak of is a survey that I am conducting for general information for a future competition that I am working on. It does not have any direct connection to the recruitment process of this tourney. I personally have not voiced any concerns about any worries of filling spots for this tournament all though some existing members have.

The COC is NOT an Option!!!

The Survey is Highly recommended!!!

No, The recruit picks are done the same way as they have in past years. I plan to start this process Monday 12/21.

THE J-DUDE (Available)

PJB172 (KINGDOM EARTH!)

HEARTSCOFFEE (KINGDOM FIRE!)

TCRAIG (KINGDOM AIR!)

MENTOR09 (Available)

No particular order but every all kingdoms must choose 1 recruit before dishing in for a 2nd

recruits are only revealed 4 at one time so... choose wisely...
