But if Earth and Bane (as a random example) have too many peaceful common borders in game after game and this allows Fire, who is leading the tournament, to hit Virtue mercilessly and for several games in a row, it shouldn't be illegal for other teams to try to sway the gameplay. Only profanity, insults and general negativity (and some egregious in-game tactics) should be illegal in my view.

Bless you Milty, yet, many would believe that "coaching" from non-players in the game room IS insulting.....the players, their own tactics and so forth....it is disrespectful to all those concerned (the players) ,and i know, because i have been guilty of it before.........It could also be classed as negativity, as i know last yr, the Virtue team did become rather aggrieved when it seemed that every other team was picking on them, and many players watching also hinted that in certain games, they should be hit.

I do NOT have any problem with peeps comin in to watch, and yelling support for certain players, or laughing when i miss another blatent kill, or telling Snyper that his hat sucks monkey's balls, YET, like i said before, if all teams have private rooms, and / or use AIM to chat with one another during a game, i see no reason whatsoever, why peeps should be talking tactics, or coachin one another on what to do.....it begs belief to do it, as we already are in teams, and do not need teams teaming with one another to try and contrive results

Before we know it, para will ban us all for teaming, and he will be alone to himself in luxdom.......

NOTE:

With the exception of Kingdom Air which is already full. I have 1 former member from each kingdom that is renewing their memberships for the draft.

I could cut the whole process in half if each kingdom agrees to take back their renewing past members?

Current members thoughts?

Option A - Take back our original Teammates and just draft the new players

Option B - Screw them they abandoned us let the other teams fight over them?

Another question, if i may Snyper......if there is such a resurgence in registrations, will there be any thoughts of bringing the teams back to a 6-player one?

If I get a say in the matter, then I'd like to see a list of the former players, and which teams they'd be rejoining. Assuming they wouldn't unbalance things as they currently stand, then I'd say sure, let 'em skip the draft. But if any one or two teams end up with a crazy good lineup, then no, I think that's not fair, and all players who didn't participate last year should be drafted. In other words, I can see the argument for both sides, especially wanting old teammates back for brotherhood's sake, but I think giving all teams the fairest chance possible is more important. Besides, captains can negotiate behind the scenes, and informally agree not to draft each other's buddies, etc. Also, when the bidding is all said and done, will you post every team's bids, so we can see exactly how the draft shook out?

With guillerme Also possibly returning in his own words... Would he get put on the team instead of para due to playing last year?

Also Snype are we sure about the player cap being 5?

you have also missed Lantern, who was a virtue player as well...........AND, frankly, paranoiarodeo did not play for Fire, did he? he hasnt played in any of the last 4 castle tournies, and to say that he was a past Fire player when he actually played for Pirate team, is not actually the same thing, is it?? AND, there was a reason that these returning players were not playin last year, so i am of the opinion that they all get put into the draft.....IF someone retires from the NFL, or whatever, and then want to re-register themselves, do they automatically go to the team that they last represented? Sometimes, there are reasons for them NOT to return to their original squad......... Also, in the case of Deez, even though i love the guy to death, there was a fair bit of angst directed towards him by other BANE members for not showing up at all last year; what if he decides at the time not to play again this yr, due to his renovations and so forth, how do the BANE players feel about him automatically coming into the team again???

Are you that afraid Maz of para re-joining team fire?

Pirates are known for looting and burning castles which remains true to Team Fire's principles.
