Hi Aranei and PhantomSamuri,
We are using the Jan 6th screenshot of ratings to determine the
Top 8 players and team formations.
On Jan 6 - Your ratings respectfully were: 4v4=1810 and 4v4=1710
Your recent ratings gains are not able to be factored into the
RC ratings that determine the 8 captains status's and teams.

I can sign you both up as individuals though.

Ratings only really matter for the seeding of the 8 captains, and
for the teammates of these Captains to form teams within the
pre-draft 4.1K rating cap.

See the Jan 6th screenshot here: (Post #5 - near top of this thread)

Why did you add the registration function together, it spoils the entire system created earlier

Hi @Neytron
Not sure I understand what you mean by
"adding the registration functions together"?

Nothing has changed in the rules or sign up's.

Each rainbow cup has had a different structure to attract different players.
The first 2 RC's were 4v4 tournaments.
RC III and IV tournaments were - 12 teams of three with open ratings.
The last tournament was also 12 teams of three, but.. sub 1800s.

This tournament with only 8 teams of three. .
was meant to have the highest average rated teams to date.
(plus be shorter, time wise each day)

It's a gamble to host a tournament with too many teams and
not have it fill up properly,
which would make for unbalanced teams.

@Tron

The First 2 RC's, were 4v4 tournaments and there were many slowdowns and desynchs.
This led to the tourny changing to 3v3 format.

The "Problem" with the 12 team format being held in 3 days..
is that there are long days required to complete the 3 matches on the opening weekend.
And many players complained (And, I totally agree) that it is hard to either:
Play 3 matches at competition level, and not get fatigued, or
to find the time across 24 time zones to allow for a '3 match a day' format.
The tourny would run very late in the East Europe time zones.

@fearghal I'm talking about the fact that players register in twos
