It isn't impossible. I'm totally happy to hope for and work on 12 teams. As it currently stands, Team Canada is now Brendan, Chris, and either Psybomb or Tim. I haven't heard back from Dave and SWA, so we'll see what happens there.
If we can get 4 more teams, however, 12 is fantastic.
The math is horrible with 9, 10, or 11 teams (we have to have cross pool matches and the tiebreaker of Head to Head doesn't work). With 8 or 12 teams, the math is perfect (every team plays every other team 1 on 1 by guy, which makes the tie breaker work, and makes the pools work perfectly with no cross pool match ups or whatever). Which is why I want to stop at 8 or get up to 12.
Here is hoping on SWA and Dave :-)

If anyone needs me, I am a free agent.

I want to be Fandral the Dashing. I am arguably more dashing than Chris, but he is definitely more grim.

If I could help you all get to a 12 team tournament this year, I would be happy to sign up. So consider me a free agent also.
If 12 players cant be found to fill these teams I will understand, so if anyone is interested in playing and hasn't got a full team or a team add me to your list of free agents available.
|By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 - 08:32 am: Edit|
So as of this morning the current team roster is:
-Team Red Cross ('cause we are going to need first aid?)
Paul Scott, Brian Evans, Gregg Dieckhaus
-Team Warriors Three
Peter "Volstag" Bakija, Chris "Hogun" Proper, Andy "Fandral" Koch
-Team New Jersey
Brook Villa, Marcus Giegerich, Steve McCann
Paul Franz, Al Rae, Barry Kirk
Dave Cheng, John Rigley, Tim Tedford (?)
Brendan, Chris, Jacob Karpel
-Team Orion Bikini Team
-Ken, Ron, David Z
Kerry, Mike, Clayton
Which is 8 teams and all free agents up till the point where we had the exact right number.
If you are Jacob or Tim, please contact your team mates (or me. or post here) to let them know you are in, as I know your team mates agreed to draft you both, but I don't know that they have heard back.
At this point, we have 8 perfect teams, which is a good tournament. If we can get up to 12 teams, we'd love to do that. So if folks out there are interested, please put together a team or post as a free agent, and I'll see if I can get up to 12.
The current list of folks who are not on teams and are over and above the 8 teams so far are:
You guys are the first takers to fill in holes in existing teams if people bail/vanish/whatever and the first to become another team if we get enough people to build 4 more teams (which is 12 total people).

Got it, looks like Team Canada is going to have an American for backup :D
This was the first notice I'd gotten about it, BTW, going to need to dig up my teammates emails. Do you need my ship selection just yet?
|By William T Wilson (Sheap) on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 - 05:22 pm: Edit|
I'll play if it helps get to 12. I won't feel sad if I don't get a spot.

I am pushing this a bit on our page on Facebook. Maybe if some of you popped over to that and let people know how much fun the last one was, you could recruit some new people?

If someone needs an assist they should let me know.

Well, so far, we have 4 people who have checked in after the 8 teams:
Which is 4 of 12 people we need to get up to 12 teams. If folks want to suck other folks in to make some teams, we'll be gold!
|By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 08:19 am: Edit|
I'll hop over there at some point today and post something. The reality of the situation is that currently, we have the exact right number of players and teams (24 people/8 teams) as the format really only works optimally with groups of exactly 12 players (i.e. we need 4 team pools to make everything work correctly). So I'd certainly love to get 4 more teams (i.e. 12 more people), but if we don't get exactly 12 more people at this point, we optimally need to hold at 8 teams.

Peter, if you post, consider making it a comment onto one of mine as it is more likely to get seen that way.
|By Chris Proper (Duke) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 05:49 pm: Edit|
If we can add 4 more guys we could make eight teams of four. Dibs on Sweet William as the mighty Thor.

Welcome to Canada Jacob,
Any cravings for maple flavor and universal health care can be treated. I think 1 hour per day of Fox News may protect you from any outbreaks of rationality.

So far it doesn't look like Team Colorado is coming together. So put me down as a free agent.
|By Robert F Estrada (Daredevil) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 11:05 pm: Edit|
Sign me up as a free agent
I have been playing 4th Ed D&D mostly for awhile now, and on my i-touch! w/ App games, Youtube and the like!

Thank you Team Canada for welcoming me. I feel the sudden urge to hunt moose and make fun of Newfies, is that normal?
|By William T Wilson (Sheap) on Thursday, April 14, 2011 - 03:16 am: Edit|
Well, I'll play on Team Colorado.
|By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Thursday, April 14, 2011 - 07:48 am: Edit|
Huh. Well, this moves us up to:
So if we can get 6 more guys, we get 4 more teams (up to 12).
Please--if you are interested, throw your hat in the ring. Again, to be clear, at this point, unless we get 12 more guys, we are holding at 8 teams. But we have 6, and if we can get 6 more, that's 12 teams. So throw your hat in the ring. Or pull some pals in!
|By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Thursday, April 14, 2011 - 09:47 am: Edit|
Peter, when do you anticipate starting this? I have a question on FB to answer.

Hat is in the ring! (a tweed trilby)
