? We just talked about this in ladder - if you are gonna do this, you may as well just say North America. I have found 1 Mexican player in ladder, (page 24/58 so far) {TBG}Fox Stevenson and it sure doesn't look like he will be participating in this anytime soon. As for Canada, there is again, 1 player - Exorcedes who I don't even know if he's playing anymore. Unless you really want to convince Exorcedes to come back and participate in this, I don't get why you want to include these countries

So how will the teams be decided? Will we use the same rating system as the previous tournament? If we are:
USA:
1.Woofy
2.Fartface
3.Sanis
4.Funnyhell
5.Radium
6.XX2
additional
7.Goose
8.Dragon
9.bsteady
10.Carlos
11.DN
12.Matattack

EU:
1.Dick van Dyke
2.JWhatever
3.Patateh
4.Mssv
5.Lady Squirtle
6.Don Quijote
additional
7.Jimlad Seraph
8.Cracker
9.Void
10.Brandon
11.KnipChip
12.Plauze

Explain the captain part again. After the teams have been formed (12 on each side?) the 12 US players will vote for a US captain and eu does the same for their side? That captain will then form a lineup from the whole region? By region to mean the 12 player pool or actually the whole US / EU region? Why not just play the top players from both sides and they can figure out the lineup? If someone in the main lineup doesn't show, the subs can fill accordingly.

What about everyone else, What do the worse players like Wicksman and his team do for practice if only the top players are playing this ONE DAY BO5, which takes place instead of the ENTIRE preseason? Do they have to setup scrims on their own?
I'd argue this hurts more people overall.

Does it have to be instead of SL preseason? We have new teams this SL and a preseason for them would be good as well as I personally would like to have SL preseason.

Does anyone remember from the past SL pre-seasons if the turnout of each player of each team was high? If not, this will probably be an ideal replacement

Enough that there has always been a preseason (except last season).
Preseason has always been a decider if two or more teams have equal amount of points / wins. iirc it has been used once in the past, it might have been between BBQ and Vlix.

Also Feb 13th is Saturday.

I think XX2's search left you guys out because your flags are malfunctioning on the ladder website (at least Walt's is), and he didn't supplement his statistics with memory! But yes Walt would be the 2nd highest "americas" player

That's quite the active community, only one of those players can play at this time.
Unless donk wants to turn around that 0-4 :^)
Let me clarify, there is only one Canadian player who can participate in this at this time - Walt. I did not forget about other Canadians, unless you want lirich to warm the bench.

lol

Donk, vipr, hmm, hollywood, and Ark are no where near the top to even qualify for the US team. They are not relevant to this.

Canada and Mexico =/= USA.
Some CIS regions are not in Europe (i.e. Kazakhstan).

A better name would be North America vs. Eurasia. Doesn't roll off the tongue as easily, but at least it'd be accurate for the countries you want to include.

I never said that we would all be in the running to play. Let's take a look at what you said again.

Saying that there's only one player, who doesn't even play anymore, and dismissing all the others who do actually play somewhat regularly is extremely rude. Out of the Canadian players I'd say that only Walt and Holly would make the list for NA, but that's beside the point.

Walt's has never worked, even back on Nobo's ladder site.

There is nothing broken about Walt's flag. He did not want his country displayed, so it was removed.

Also I can say for sure that I will not be around for this on the 13th, or at least I will need to leave around the time it starts if it starts at normal league time. I can put up backup servers in the rare case there are any issues with the main league servers.

The reason I brought this up in the first place was that I was/am trying to figure out why Goose wants to group Canada / Mexico with USA.

I thought: "ok let's say Goose goes ahead and groups the three together....Who are the Mexican players that qualify? *planeball.com/ranked* Annnnd, nobody" I got curious and decided to see if we had any Mexican players at all in ladder and I stopped after I found that one Fox guy. Now I am wondering why does including Mexico do anything for this tournament if nobody can even play for that country and we hardly have any Mexican players in ladder at all?

"How about Canada?" *planeball.com/ranked* Ok there's Walt who makes the team for position 2. Lirich might make it as a sub depending on how big the team size is at position 11. Walt on the other hand has a secured spot, actually he's the only Canadian with a spot in the 6 player lineup. The problem is that he doesn't play as far as I know. So there actually may not be any players for Canada either - why does goose want to include Canada if that 1 player does not even play?

When I said there is only one player, I mean there is only one player who currently has a spot in this tournament. I didn't forget about the other Canadians. I dismissed everyone else who plays because they are not high enough in ladder to participate at this time IF we are using the same point system like the previous one.

If Goose decides to use some other system to rank the players (ex: the community judges everyone) then yeah I agree with Hollywood and Walt playing for Canada

Updated OP with more info:

-Top 6 players from ladder for each region are automatically invited to play for their team.

-If any of the top 6 from ladder refuse to play/can't show up/etc, their spot is given to the next highest rated player.

-6 additional players can then be drafted by the Captain of each team.

-Any person can apply for the role of Captain. You can only apply as Captain of the team you represent. Simply put a quick application statement in this thread. Then we can vote on who we think will be the best Captain. (idea stolen from Dougie)

Quick example of an application:
(Using the player ufo in this case cuz i think he would be a good Captain, but that is just my personal bias):
Team: USA
Altitude Name: ufo
Years Playing: 6
Clan History: Twisted, tv0, T.T, c:
Statement: I'm the best flexy loopy in the game and I will lead us to victory if i am elected Captain, thx.



OTHER NOTES: Remember there will be no official preseason for Sky League, but teams can feel free to scrim on the weekends before Sky League starts to prepare. Also this takes place on a SATURDAY not a Sunday @ 7PM GMT (Standard tournament time)

After consulting a lot of the potential candidates to play in this event, it as come to my unfortunate conclusion that this start date is a little too soon, and a lot of people will be unavailable this weekend due to President's Day and Valentines Day.

Therefore we have 2 options:


OPTION A: Postpone this event for a week or 2 and play then.

PROS:
-Gives a bit more time for the top players to commit to the date if they can prepare their schedule accordingly.

-Can be played on a Sunday. (Saturday could be agreed upon as well)

CONS:
-Would have to postpone the Sky League start date by a week or 2 which would suck.


OPTION B: Play this tournament after Sky League is over.


PROS:
-We can set a final date in the future for when your ladder standing would be officially ended to qualify for this tournament which could draw more hype towards ladder as players want to fight for a top 6 spot.

-We can do a bunch of other cool stuff to make this event even better.

CONS:
-It would take place after Sky League so hype might be down if players decide to retire or take a break.


What do you guys think? I personally vote for OPTION B

I think the sooner the better, i think the SL preseason is the best day. We only have to choose the captains, and it is a nice way to open the SL.

How about playing it after the regular season of SL finishes but before the playoffs? would allow some teams to get catch up games finished also.

As of now i think i definetly would prefer SL start on the 21st but i could push it back 1 extra week to start on March 6th. Then this tournament could take place on the 21st of February which should be more than enough time to have all the teams set up and ready to go. The idea Dougie suggested could be cool too.

I suppose there could be an "Option C" as well in where we just go ahead with the original idea of playing on the 13th, and fill in the slots accordingly for the people who won't be able to make it. I only know of woofy not being able to show up on that day for sure for the USA team and possibly JWhatever too for EU, which is why i figured it might make more sense to change the start date. Both of those players have been dominating ladder and have a lot of versatility in terms of planes they excel at so having them miss out on this tournament that is supposed to showcase some of the best players in Altitude wouldn't feel the same... But I guess there would never be a schedule that works out for everyone and its expected that some of the top players wouldn't be able to show up. There are enough good/great players active to make strong teams for each side that hopefully lead to some EPIC games!

I was going to tell the team which player they wanted who to avoid one person getting picked multiple times. I honestly trust the team to pick decent players regardless. Ideally, if everybody on the main lineup shows up, they get to play according to Goose, weird plane comp or not. (I think the current US plane comp is ok anyways)

I'm not so sure about one thing though, who decides on substitutions? Goose just says that the captain just drafts 6 people. Who's picking the map?
I'm assuming he is going to have the captain do that but hopefully he will make it clear.

This tournament will be delayed until March 20th, the week before Sky League Playoffs starts.

Rosters will lock on March 14th. The top 6 from each region of ladder will then be automatically invited to play in this tournament.

Also to make things simpler there will only be 2 additional players added to the rosters instead of the original idea of having 6 more people added since that was way too many people and it would of complicated things.

final update on start date due to the recent change in Sky League:

Game will be played on April 10th, @ 7PM GMT which is the week before SL Playoffs start

Rosters will lock on April 3rd

May the ladder gods offer you their blessing

Also a new rule aka The Walt Rule: if you have qualified to play in this tournament by being in the top 6 for either region but you haven't played a ladder game in 2 weeks, you are no longer eligible to participate in this tournament and your spot is given to the next highest rated player that is active in ladder.

To reclaim your eligibility you have to play at least 6 ladder games a week.

A Change in the rules: There will no longer be captains. The top 6 players from each region will just show up and play and organize themselves to keep things simple. The captain idea sounded cool in theory, but in reality it was unnecessary, sorry about that.
