I am glad to see all of the applications we have recieved, already over 150! This is great, but now it is time to get to business. I warned that not everyone would get a chance to play, and for this I am sorry. For those that are selected, I implore you to be active, be interested and be proud of your team. This thread is dedicated to the formation of rosters. A captain has been selected for each of the 12 teams, and they have the responsibility of filling out 7 more people in their roster and 2 subs. Again, captains were chosen based on reliability/skill/knowledge of battlers skills. I am sorry if you feel you deserved it, but these were the best choices. Captaincy plays no role in the pairings, and is merely a formality, but it is important to have someone in charge to organize the team and make appropriate substitutions. So after much deliberation, here are the final 12 teams selected, fitted with captains: Team Canada: Captain: Jackal - CLegacyM - cloud - skarm - jrrrrrrr - Yagami Light - Gouki - Stalling Sub: Gormenghast Sub: Ripchord Team Asia: Captain: goofball - husk - MoP - Karrot - SePh - [kd8]otome - salaspectrum - VIL Sub: Brawley Sub: Pocket Honourary Co-Captain: Shiv Team South America: Captain: omni - spies - jc_rcw - matheusfullmetal - Conker - Mario with Lasers - DD. - Batistutu Sub: PG (Dark Articuno) Sub: Mr. Italian Guy Team Oceania: Captain: Blue Kirby - Hipmonlee - Earthworm - Antique Roadshow - Mysterious Stallion - Lord_Sunday - massi4h - hibachi Sub: Puggy Sub: animenagai Team USA East: Captain: JesiahTEG - Floppy - Mystica - Fade Away - Thunderhorse - Balb - FM - Ultimascout Sub: Green Pikachu Sub: 3n3my Team USA Central: Captain: Loki - Aeolus - FiveKRunner - SSBM roy - Obi - LonelyNess - Roy - Symon Sub: Teifu Sub: Raito Light Team USA West: Captain: Warthog - zerowing - batpig - Sonuis - Lord Gloom - Slice n Dice - Metabou - picklesword Sub: Calciphoce Sub: TAY Team USA South: Captain: Captkirby - TheBM - Fishin - Foreys - Judgement - Max - Pilocus - Sk Sub: maddog Sub: Venom Team USA Metro: Captain: Surgo - Aldaron - Aamto - IggyBot - TTS - Maniaclyrasist - Giga Punch - JabbaTheGriffin Sub: The Lexx Sub: Kira Team UK: Captain: Phuquoph - timw06 - Taylor - Melon - Toothache - Havak - dynamo - Ghandi1988 Sub: Seraethan Sub: GBH713 Team Germany: Captain: ]v[ajin Tupac_Z - StrangerDanger - Xanatoss - Jirachi268 - Sapientia - Michilele - GG - OBSTL Sub1: Aqua Sub2: Binabik Team Europe: Captain: Mekkah - Dak - Andeby - gr33n - rojo23 - WER - [Sini]Eiganjo - COalex Sub: West Sub: Rag I would ask all captains to set out to assemble their team as quickly as possible, making sure to contact everyone to get consent, researching prospects to fill the team, etc. It is in your hands to field the best possible team. I am giving you until friday to complete this task. Post finalized rosters in the topic or PM them to me ASAP to help other captains pick from peoples second options that did not make it for their first choice. Captains, feel free to recruit whomever you want to play for your team if you deem them good enough, as long as they meet the requirements. You can use the signup topic as a resource as well. Do not be timid, seek out the best players, hold "prelim matches" to give people a chance to provethemselves, etc. You have a great responsibility, get to it :) EDIT for confusion: To the non-captains: sit tight, your job is to contact the captain to let them know who you are and that you want to play, and hope that they pick you. This is shaping up to be a great tournament, thanks for the cooperation :) PS: Go Canada!
