If we even had 40 people sign up (which we should from my guild alone), we could have 8 teams of 5, more than enough for a proper league.
Before you think that I'm trying to put together a super team with my guildmates, it doesn't work like that and that's part of the fun.
The captains would random 100 to see who got first pick and we'd continue to cycle through the rotation until all the players were chosen.
Every week for the rest of season 10 each team would be assigned an opponent whom they would play in a best of 3 in wargames. We're talking around an hour max a week of your time. I'd keep the standing updated on the forums, as well as stats like flag caps and flag returns.
Anyway, I'll be getting my guild in on this for sure but the more people who'd want to participate the better league/draft we could have. Mail me in game if you're interested in being added to the player pool (MAIL NOT MESSAGE) and I'll take care of the rest. Signups begin today and end next Sunday, July 31st. If you're interested in being a captain, please specify that as well.
Captain responsibilities include:
1. Naming your team
2. Not being an idiot in the draft
3. Scheduling your match each week with your designated opponent's captain.
4. Having either a vent server for your team to use or making sure they are all set up on Skype.
Players from any guild on the server are welcome. There will be a gear minimum, likely at least the full pvp blue set from last season.
Each team will be limited to ONE healer and ONE flag carrier. If a team captain happens to be either, they will not be allowed to pull another such player from the draft.
I'll also be putting up a gold pot of 20,000 that will be split amongst the winning team at the end of the season. That's 4k per person. Not a bad reward for participating in what should be a fun league as long as we have the interest.
If it's legal within Blizzard's rules maybe I'll even be able to hand out 1 month game cards to the winning team. I'll look into it.
