Eye PHANTASY FOOTBALL: Arda Cup 2013

The Phantasy Team Competition is fast approaching!!

Tell your friends, tell your enemies, and tell those people you don't really talk to!

Last season that yearly powerhouse Gwath looked like he would take home his third title, but the ever-solid Nog came through at the very end and earned his first. Will he repeat? Or will Gwath reclaim the throne?

Perhaps another past champion, Skip, or Boro, will make their own argument for being the greatest of all time. Or maybe some perpetual threat, like Nilp or Nerwen, will finally break through.

Or perhaps this is the year everything comes together for Sally or Shasta, or perhaps a newer face like Legate will show everyone that experience isn't all that counts...

We shall see....

******************
******************

Before I list the rules for this year's competition, we need to take care of some business, and we need your help.

We need to vote on the roster for Tol In Gaurhoth!!

Per tradition (and as a reward for lots of game-writing and organization), Boro, Nilp, and I are on the team, as is Inzil thanks to his hard-luck prize last year.

Drauglin and Thuringwethil will be playing with Tol In Gaurhoth this year as well- so that means there are four Wight slots to fill, and one Wolf slot to fill (the goalkeeper). There are also two Wight slots on the Barrow-Downs team, but for the moment those are reserved for new players. (If you've never played Arda Cup before and you sign up, you're on the Barrow-Downs team. In the absence of two completely new players, two players that didn't play last year will gain the slots.)

So long story short, we need to elect five people to play.

As of now everyone is allowed five total votes for either nominating or seconding (you can't vote for the same person twice of course). Anyone that receives four votes is in immediately, and if not enough Downers have received the necessary number of votes by the middle of next week I will simply take the highest vote getters.

Don't worry about nominating Wights & Wolves separately- that will sort itself out later.

The team currently stands-

Tol In Gaurhoth
GK- (TBAwolf)
DF- Drauglin
DF- (TBAwight)
DF- BoroWolf
DF- NilpWolf
MF- (TBAwight)
MF- (TBAwight)
MF- (TBAwight)

MF- PhantomWolf
FW- Thuringwethil
FW- InzilWolf

Second Nerwen. I believe that puts both her and Shasta on the team. Also, nominate Legate and hope he shows up.

Why thank you, kind sir. Next time I'll know how to bribe you.

PS: isn't it Draugluin?

Finalizing Gal. And yes, I fully plan to perform this year. All I need is a chance to sprinkle- I mean sparkle- I mean shine.

The teams are in, the groups are in... so go and look for them in the game thread!

The exact rules are coming forwards any day now, but you can already start looking where you should pick your team from.

And just that everyone is on the same page, I'm also asking for tp to confirm the structure of the tournament.

So after the group phase where all the teams in one group meet each other once, the winner of group A meets the second team from group H (and the winner of group H meets the second of group A), then the winner of group B meets the second team from group G etc.?

I'm surprised morm and/or Eomer haven't made an appearance yet? It wouldn't be a proper phantasy tournament without them.

Double-check my maths, if you be so kind, as I am very much prone to mistakes at it, but I think it should be 100 altogether.
