Gatekeeper reporting in for combat duty!
Do we already know who the teamcaptains are gonna be this year?

Blackened, all kinds of matches can and will be played during the BTT. You have the choice of playing any match-up you and your opponend(s) (and teammates) feel like playing.

Refusing to play too difficult opponent(s) is an option to defend points for your team. But we all wanna have a good time bashing skulls :P

Games gotta be recorded and archived though...
No shenanigans, just fair up kickin' your opponents arse!

Fiveaces was captain at the last Big Team Tournament. Pretty sure he will also cast again. Give someone else a shot.

Also doesn't the captain need to agree to matches? I remember the US timeslots had less matches not just because of a lack of players but the lack of captains being online to organise.

Perhaps have the captains rank their team to their judgement and allow people who are within X ransk of eachother to play without agreement from the captain?

Will we be able to play games without the teamcaptains being present?
