I made this separate thread to avoid confusion so we're moving over here.

The first round matchups have been drawn!

UK B vs USA A
UK A vs NL A
USA B vs NOR A
GER C vs SPA&POR
GER B vs FRA A
GER A vs USA C

AUS&NZ A vs HEL
NOR B vs CAN
CZE A vs NL B
POL B vs SWI
POL C vs ITA
POL A vs FRA B
USA D vs POL D

AUS&NZ B vs NL C
GER D vs BEL
NL D vs FIN
UK C vs FRA C
IRL vs FRA D
S AME vs CZE B

The games will be created some time tomorrow.
If your team has exactly 6 players, I assume they are all going to play. If you intend to bench someone and play with incomplete team, you need to contact me and let me know in some way.
As a reminder, every team has 12 games. Ideally it's 6 players getting 2 games each. But if you want, you can bench someone and give his games to other players. But this has a downside as it makes you enter the round with minus 1 win per missing player.

I'll try to do some scorekeeping and commentary here on the forums, unlike last season :)
See you tomorrow.

Glad to get an easy start for us. Looking forward to round 2 when hopefully we get a real team to play!

Cheers Rento for organizing this!

I'd like to report a rule breach:
"5. Big countries can field multiple teams if they have more than 6 players who want to play, but they should aim to put their best players into one team. Also there's a limit of max 5 teams from the same country."

The Netherlands is obviously considered a small country not a big one (only their ego is big). As a result, I don't think they are allowed to field multiple teams. Hence all their teams except for A (which will lose through Farah booting) should forfeit immediately.

So you want your own team, NL-E, to be forfeited as well? weird

We are team Belgium, which is a different country obviously that has nothing to do with The Netherlands.
That was just a remarkably unfunny joke from your captain. It was already specified in the other topic that team Belgium is in no way linked to the Netherlands.

And in case it wasn't clear enough, the above is done as a revenge for that joke. I would have ignored it otherwise, but you just had to provoke us, didn't you? You may think it's funny: "haha, Belgium part of The Netherlands". I can tell you, it's not for me and it will never be. It's cringeworthy at best, insulting if taken at face-value and extremely problematic if taken seriously in any way.

I doubt anyone in the Dutch team considers Belgium to be part of the Netherlands. We share little more than the language (and even that is 50/50). I had a history teacher who refused to refer to Belgium as anything but 'The Southern Netherlands'. A very annoying chap. He got fired over this, along with some other allegations.

The Belgians and Dutch joke about each other; it's what neighbouring countries tend to do. There's no need to get flamed by it in my opinion.

I've investigated the cause of the Belgian-Dutch conflict ...

... and I found the answer! https://www.culturematters.com/why-the-belgians-hate-the-dutch-so-much/

What the Flemish dislike about the Dutch is that they are so loud, they talk too much (if not all the time), their humor is vulgar, and they are way too direct to the likings of the Dutch-speaking Belgians.

Now you might think that that is quite a lot of dislike, and that is true. The best piece of advice I got one day from a Belgian lady in answer to my question how to do better business with the Belgians as a Dutchman was: … (she took a long pause) … “Simply be quiet. Shut up and listen for once”. After that comment I was quiet 😉


So, there you have it! The Dutch just need to not reply to this thread and everyone will be a happy Larry!

It's just too bad that the Dutch are stubborn and would never actually stop speaking

I don't think it's funny. I think it's sad for Netherlands.
But better them than us.

Smh, we all know it’s the other way. “Netherlands” is Northern Belgium.

No they don't, Aussie talk about invading New Zealand is very serious. Soon enough the ANZ team will be just the AUS team.

You're both part of the same bonus on the EU map, so I think the real crime is leaving Luxembourg out of this conversation.
