@penguin_ I do love the Captain/draft system,
but would like to have some more input on this idea of allowing 2 player combos be able to co-sign up first.
This still has the Captain like seeding of a draft system
(although the Capt is the 2 player team instead of top rated team player, and
there is only a 1 round draft instead of 2 round)
I think after the recent 2 tourneys, everyone who liked the Captain/Draft system signed up and played.
And even though we did have Great turnouts,..
I do think there are some players who "may have" signed up if they were able to sign up w/friend.
Now with many players playing 2v2, I am sure they would also like to sign up as guaranteed teammates.
Having a one round draft from bottom combined rated team up to highest rated team will
act to balance out team strengths..
Trying out this Combination "2 player cosign and draft" Team formation format
on the RCV will be a good test to see if it will also work for the RCVI Open tourney.
I am thinking when registration opens people can sign up in two ways:
1- co sign up as 2 players with max combined 3.5K rating or
2- sign up individual to be in draft.
Players can feel free to form teams from the
individual sign ups in the draft pool list of registrants,
right up to the last minute of registration:
Teams can keep registering and forming up to the last minute and
will continue to be reordered according to combined rating
If more than 12 teams are formed before registration deadline:
any teams not in the top 12 combined rating will be be disbanded and
offered a chance to enter draft pool as single players with
opportunity to be drafted on one of the 12 teams.
