    Pretty sure it'll be NY servers again as it has the widest catchment of players who get playable ping.

    Easiest way it seems is to have only 5 per team; the original idea was to have uncapped signups, and whomever wasn't picked would end up in a sub pool.

    Of course, to avoid people being bummed out that they're in a sub pool, we could also cap signups at, say, 50 (which we could likely get) and have 10 teams of 5. Team captains would then be responsible for finding their own subs if needed, which of course would need the approval of the other team's capt to avoid abusing imbalanced subs.

    it's better to cap the check ins than the signups imo, turn up early first come first serve

    Now would this check in be on the day of the draft or on the day the games will actually be played?

    Looking forward to this! I hope to see a lot of new faces. If any of you are hesitant because of inexperience I suggest trying a few pugs to feel the flow a bit and don't be afraid to ask for pointers, we all love helping people improve. Irc is a great place for finding people to practice with aswell.

    Slush - if the objective is for fun... I'd suggest.. ditching the draft and just dole out people in groups of 5. (drafting makes people feel unwanted )
    since its for fun and doesn't matter... subs should just be whoever is available. (different bracket)

    I appreciate the suggestion but the easiest and most fair solution is a draft at this time.

    Without using drafting where captains pick their own teams it is more than likely they'll be one or more overpowered teams that will crush everyone else, especially considering players are good at different things. Another problem is you'll end up sticking players together that really don't like each other and up making it a miserable experience for everyone else on that team too.
