Team Selection:
Teams for this tournament will work through a Captain Pick process.
Players will be seeded by their highest rating, regardless of global or ladder.

The highest 12 will become Captains.
A Captain is given the right to pick "draft" a team,
out of the registered players "draft pool" to play with during the tournament.

The Captains themselves will also be seeded according to rating.
Meaning the 12th Captain will have the lowest seed of all 12 Captains.
However, this 12th Captain will have the right to -
draft "pick" the 1st player during the Team Selection stage.
The drafts then goes up sequentially from 11th Capt. to the 1st Captain.
This procedure is repeated for the 2nd player, from 12th Capt. to 1st Capt.
.

The Following 54 Players have registered:
A "c" denotes Captain.

Most Bo3 matches will have:
2 10x10 maps and 1 20x20map
1 land, 1 water and 1 mixed map.

Map Balance tests:
Will always use alx Uveso Adaptive for human team simulation,
and the AI to be used in game, in the AI spots.

Here is Map 14 Balance at 13 Minute mark:

@Fearghal

Thanks for including my AI, "AI-Swarm"
I recommend you add AI-Uveso, and RNGAI. Both provide an awesome challenge.
"AI-Swarm" Requires AI-Uveso anyway for markers and such so.

AI-Swarm
3 Sub AI's:
-AIx: Swarm Terror : ------This is your Standard Swarm AI.
-AIx: Swarm Eternal : -----This one cheats harder as the game goes on and Cheats harder when its losing.
-AIx: Swarm Test :------- For Testing Purposes

AI-Uveso
5 sub AI's:
AI: Easy; -----------Builds a few units and does not attack the enemy base. But it will defend its base.
AI: Adaptive; -------Balanced AI, builds Land, Air, Naval and Experimental units.
AI: Rush; -----------T1, T2 and T3 unit spam with fast tech upgrade and few experimentals.
AI: Experimentals;--- Builds a few units and is focussing on building experimental units.
AI: Overwhelm;----- Like AI-Adaptive, but increases cheat+build factor by 0.6 after 35 minutes and again by 0.6 after 60 minutes.

RNGAI:
IS designed for 5km and 10km maps
IS designed for early tier focus.
It will not put out higher tier units that it doesn't have the economy for.

About AI and the Tournament:
Alx Sorian will only be used in Round 1 of the Tournament.
It is the 'easiest' but it does slow down the game a little.
The 3 AI mod's in this tournament Do Not slow down the PC as much,
and will be used exclusively from Round 2 till the Final.
Each round will introduce a little more difficult AI.
