I saw hayes removed himself, how about if you don't want to play (and you're nominated) just put

Code: Select all

<del> </del>
around your name so it's clear you don't want to play and you won't get nominated by someone else?

Idea: once the ~4 weeks of nominating are up, I make a topic and each person can name 6 people for each team that they think is the best, I'll keep the score and the 6 people of each team who got the most votes, get to play. Then, America vs Europe will have a best of 5 match. Will determine later in what server.

Of course with voting it has to happen with a known and legit forum account, so its not rigged.

This seems like the easiest solution.

Questions:
  • Why not 8v8? Seems more interesting.
    Why not one best of 3 match in a US and an EU server?
And I think we should vote in 2 subs aswell, so 10 players on each team if it's 8v8. Just in case someone's internet is being a b*tch.

Other than that I think I agree :D

Titanoboa: I agree of having best of 3 in both a European and North American server instead of switching servers just after 1 match. A reasonable, roughly, 90 minutes at home and away - so to speak - should be perfect. If it does indeed result in a draw, being each continent wins in their own continent or vise versa, then the team with the most rounds won or most score points won in total should decide where the final best of 3 is played at.

The IRC randomizer script that we use for the Ladles to decide which location it begins with first should be fair enough.

Also in my opinion; this nominations idea is silly and I think players should just sign themselves up if they wish to play. So there's no confusion on who is or isn't going to make it and even if they're aware of being chosen. I liked the idea of each player giving a choice of 2 or 3 positions they can play. Such as 'Sweeper, Attacker, Defender, Centre' besides their names, which would assist in choosing players for the line-up and prevent players being forcfully put into a position they don't wish to play in.

Also I believe it should be a public vote, but I disagree with how each player is picked based on personal preference rather than perfection of a team based on the 6 man line-up. There should just be a sign-up for players and also a sign up for captain/manager and maybe also a co-captain/manager sign up so everybody can simply vote on which captain/manager is chosen to pick the players and co-captains to assist him, for each continent.

The US server should be in the middle of the US like in Texas, not 5 feet from the Atlantic Ocean.

This gave me an idea. One of the matches are in central europe (anywhere except GB is fair enough I guess), and one in central US like durka said.
Third match could be in an east coast US server. Most euros have nearly as low pings as most americans in there.

8v8 with 2 subs per team would probably be best
I'm also all for the public vote, it would definitely be the quickest and most fair way to go about picking.

Just to be clear though, anyone can nominate any good player they want to play? (Including themselves?)
-Just another fortress nerd.

I don't see any reason why people can't nominated themselves: if they're not good enough they won't get any votes anyway.

Can't say I agree with you being "good" though :D Some disoriented noob seems to have nominated you already anyway. :]
