The average rating of all current signups is 1750 while the average rating of team nexus is 2100 with the added advantage of them not being randomly chosen with a captain system. Seems like the entire advantage of the captain system, ie fair and balanced teams, is completely negated with this.

About 42 Maps chosen, now to test and narrow down to the 22 needed for the Tourny.
This is the card I kept to keep track of the Land and Water Maps,
and there are a lot of odd size maps bet 10's and 20's.

oh jesus christ hurzer99 was banani? This team is INSANELY stacked, because both banani and protect have improved massively since last year. just save them the time and give them the money and avatar ahead of time and let us enjoy a way more balanced tourney without them participating

Thanks for coming forward and working out a solution with
the good of the Tourny in mind.
Everyone is appreciative 🙂

The team has an average rating of 2100. You would need every single 2k player on FAF to sign up. This won’t happen. The captain system even goes so far as to stop potential competitive teams that would beat that team as the process results in a relatively even rating spread.

Functionally right now, any person below 1850 is dooming a team to lose as far as rating is concerned and might as well as not sign up. It’s why I’m not signing up anyway.

I agree, and with all the feedback...
We are no longer entertaining "Invited" teams.
12 new teams it is!

The weeks of registration do not matter. There are 36 applicable players to fill your 32 slots (if we’re trying to keep the invited team while keeping teams competitively viable ie within 400 points of one another) and like a third of those have false ratings from various manipulations of global and therefore won’t play in such a tourney anyway on top of the players that just have no desire to play ie Blodir or Petric.

It’s a fight for 2nd between the teams that are forced to play under a fair play rule that doesn’t apply to the above team.

@FtXCommando since you constantly say ratings are inflated and wrong "a third of those have false ratings from various manipulations of global" ect, then our ratings mean very little. so you contradict yourself. So our team is not that strong unless you truly believe our ratings. I agree with you that ratings are highly manipulated as mine should be 1200! so i don't see the problem. I will talk to them about our 100 each to split, most likely they will accept it.

Uh yeah are you trying to clown me and say banani and nexus aren’t worth their rating? Even you aren’t the worst example of a sentoner and actually occasionally play random high level teamgames. Nothing I said is contradictory unless your intention is to explain that you or someone else on your team is an astro pro equivalent? If so feel free to go and make that argument.

if you re watch the finals we lost insanely hard and now all of a sudden we are op and unbeatable because me and banani gained 200 points. i guess plus 200 points in faf make you a god.

You forget this isn’t a normal team game tourney. The AI’s have also improved since last year and they are the real kingmakers here!

It's not that this team is unbeatable, it's that it has a significant unfair advantage over all the other teams. There's definitely narrative benefits to allowing a returning team, but it comes at the cost of the competitiveness of the event. The current world champion getting to have a player who would otherwise be a captain + a decent 3rd player is going to be pretty far ahead of any other team.

OK,
It seems like I have to make a tough decision, but
a necessary one;
All Invites for the RCIV and the proposed invites for RCV
have been rescinded and withdrawn.
Amicable, agreement has been made with concerned players.
Thank You, and see you in the draft.

Invites seemed like a good idea when I proposed it,
And it is a nice incentive to have a 1st round bye in next Feb's RCV, but...
too many complications and ratings fluctuations have occurred,
or may occur again next year,
and you know what?

RCIII worked out Great!
We had 12 great teams after the draft.

Let's All enter as Individuals again and
get ourselves 12 NEW teams!

Wesh 1800 sing up!

@fearghal I believe it was a bitter decision to make but will definitely improve the tournament a lot. Wouldn't be an issue if previous teams wouldnt have improved a lot lol.

You and banani both being 200 rating higher basically means there is a 70% chance both of you beat your old selves, it’s nearly a full standard deviation improvement and it’s why both of you moved from being like middle potential picks to both being potential captains.
