Envaeronment you can represent Belguim and the netherlands.
Ska2D2 the groups are pretty large as i am only having 19 teams just incase it isnt so polular. Korea and Japan are being linked with China. Lithuania is grouped with Denmark as they have low numbers of Warlight players but when added togever they have a far few. Ska2D2 is that a sign up for China?
Richard Ewupa is simply the name of the tournament. It sounds funny but gives a sense of sperated unity, hence free for all!

In the other thread you said:
If you have questions then post them with your sign up or send me a email.

Question 1: So, we are not allowed to even ask question without signing up as well? That's "peculiar".
Question 2: How do you envision people emailing you; WL doesn't reveal people's email address and you didn't post it yourself either.



How are you going to make teams of two out of 19 participants. And why?? You could simply start with FFAs right away...?



Your division into regions is rather weird; usually when countries get grouped into regions some attention is paid to historical, cultural and/or political bonds.
I would never group Finland with Russia; grouping them with the Baltic States (as Moros pointed out already "The Lowlands" refers to the Netherlands and Belgium, not (to the best of my knowledge) to the Baltics...) might be acceptable, but grouping them with Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland into the "Nordic" region seems to be pretty standard.
Maybe it's just me, but I think it's hilarious how Serbia and Kosovo ended up in different regions; there's still people who think it is (or, at least, should be) one country, yet you separate them even further than anyone else...
When you say "Great Britain and Island" do you mean "GB and Ireland" or "GB and Iceland"?
Sticking to "common" regions also helps a lot when you don't want to have to list each and every single country. For instance, I guess Portugal would be in the "Spain and Italy" group, but where does Switzerland go; with France, or with Central Europe? This is especially important since you seem to have forgotten about just about half of Europe (the ones I already mentioned, some small nations (Luxembourg and everything smaller), Slovenia, Slovakia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Belarus, Ukraine). A similar situation occurs in Central America where everything between Mexico and "South America" (Colombia I guess??) is left unassigned.

Long story short: if there's so many issues with something so relatively simple as defining regions, I doubt you'll manage to run the tournament itself very well...

There are 19 teams as there are 19 regions, i havent said every sigle country as that would be pointless. If you are in a country that is undefined then join the are closet. For example colombia could join either South America or Mexico. You can set emails, mine is skunk9403@gmail is you have eney questions. The onyl reason i dont want people asking questions is that it blocks up the post. If you have a question feel free to email me and get a quicker response.
Ska2D2 that is a alright idea but we shall stick with this for know.
Thank you Envaeroment for your apoligys.

I'll represent Great Britain, this looks better than the Nations Cup for people like me who are a bit more new to tournaments.
And Moros i think the whole point of the forums is so people can easily see who has appleid for what team. Emails mean only skunk would see it and would make clashes of who's in what team often and make things complicated.

Hey Skunk, what if I would copy your Solar System map exactly, but only change a few borders and connections, and then go advertise for it, without giving you credit or asking permission, wouldn't that piss you off?
This is exactly the same! You're stealing the concept Dunga invented (there's no need for smart comments about that he didn't invent the concept of teams of different countries fighting against each other, I mean that he's the first one who adjusted it to Warlight), starting it while the other one is still running, and just expect people to love it!
Your biggest mistake is the timing. Just believe me, cancel this, and reboot it in half a year, but clearly state that it's an adaptation of Dunga's idea. I'd happily join it by then (if there weren't dozens of Dutchman better than me)

This thourom is for signing up and asking questions. If it was done by email then no one would now eneything.

Wait, so it is for asking questions...!? Because I was just about to point out that if people have to email you with questions, you'll be answering a lot of duplicate questions; posting questions (and answers) in the forum means everyone will benefit. Also, it can clarify problems people didn't even know they misunderstood.

This is no copy. Nations cup is total seperate and nothing like this. For 1 national is a teamed game this is free for all. 2nd i dont even now what the nations tournament is doing i have never looked into it.

So you changed the number of people on a team (either 1, 2, 3 or 7 on the Nations Cup, always 1 for you) and you changed the number of teams per match (always 2 on the Nations Cup, a bunch for you; incidentally, you never explained how (or why) you are going to make groups of two out of 19 participants in the first round). Oh and you have the first person to sign up competing, instead of at least trying to get some of the stronger players from each region. All the changes are either trivial or the Nations Cup is doing it better.
It is of course possible you had this idea before the Nations Cup started. However, the Nations Cup was announced earlier; it sure looks like you copied the idea. Is that fair? No, maybe not (go talk to Marconi, who had his status as inventor of the radio taken away from him; he more than likely invented it himself, but Tesla was just a little earlier to let the world / patent office know about it), but that's the way it works.

Much more importantly, from your posts so far, I doubt whether you would make a very good tournament "president"; you seem to have difficulty explaining your idea, do not solve problems which have been pointed out to you and get rather hostile when people try to offer you suggestions for improvement.

This problem can easily be gotten rid off!
Step 1: Close this tournament.
Step 2: Wait half a year, until the winter holiday, because then people will have free time again. Currently, no good players will have interest.
Step 3: Restart it, but call it as it is: an adaptation of the Nation Cup. And make a sort of selection for players to represent their region. Otherwise, you'll get players like Puke filling it up.
Step 4: Enjoy your tournament.

And, if you don't want to listen, then here are some questions:
Why did you start this tournament when the other Nation Cup was still running?
Why do you accept just about any player?
Why is it so hard to listen to other players and let them guide you for once?
Why do you keep posting the line-up, when no changes have been made?

1) This tournament was planned well before the nations cup exsisted.
2) Why cant everyone have a go?
3) Its hard to listen when there just moaning for no reason and are out to ruin the tournament.
3) So new looking players can easily see it when they look.
