No it's not.  Marnid chose the best players. 

How are we supposed to know that "Dirty_Walter" not much involved in the community, which is obvious by the recruit rank and the fact that no one has ever heard of you, can be reliable?  Or even good? 

Marnid stated clearly that he chose the people who were active in the thread, and it turned out to be the right amount.

To be fair, I wasn't talking about myself, though I've been playing Mount & Blade for several years now.

That said, what does being active in the forums/being in a random clan/playing on the right servers have to do with being good at playing the game?  I don't dispute that the listed individuals are excellent players.  My point was that it seems silly to proclaim that a particular competition features the best of the best when the competitors were are only the select individuals that the 'team captain' happened to deem worthy. 

In my opinion, a more well rounded (and I do dare say, more talented) team would have arisen from a bracket style tournament or something of the sort.  Nonetheless, I wish the team good luck and I'll be looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

Because this is a forum based event.  Only active reliable people are chosen.  If they don't frequent the forums, how can they be reliably communicated with?

I'd like to be nominated so that I can team kill you all so the Brits win. Do we have an acord?

 I do find it amusing, I came into this thread expecting a load of "America **** yeah" stuff and it was here. I went into the British one expecting a load of well..."tea" lol and both assumptions were spot on :P.

At least you lot have got an enthusiastic team. It appears Britian's team are only enthusiastic on the forums.

Also you don't have reapy or neih? Are they australian?

:EDIT:

Dirt_walters pic slightly scares me some what.
I apologise for my terrible spelling and grammar. I am dyslexic amongst other things and find it hard to spot errors.

Because i love Turban and Raghead people.

The US team is composed (mostly) of players who are not only good but have been high-profile in the community since the beta.  It's quite representative, in my opinion.

Firstly, "North America" in the title should be more accurately called "North America minus Mexico, all of Central America, and the Caribbean islands that are part of North America," and secondly, where the hell does Canada get off sharing a border with countries far superior to it?   :wink:
If anyone tries to mess with my old clan they will have to dabble with The Golden Legion soon

Wait, it says max 14 players. Does the 6 next to it 14+6 reserves or does it mean 8+6 reserves making 14?

So I take it the "(mostly)" means me?  :lol:

@ Dirty_Walter

I didn't see you volunteering, mate.  Its a first-come-first-serve basis, or whoever the leaders pick.  And for a long time we didn't even have a team ready.

Not at all, I was referring to the fact that some on the list are not white-collar beta old guard.
