Ladder system with pick-nights to determine weekly fixtures has its flaws, like any other system. I hope things sort themselves out later in that stage and you can have at least one week to rest before the playoffs but if you continue to perform well against said strong opponents, it's likely you will continue facing them, as it is rather unlikely someone picks you.Menethil said:Another week another strong opponent. Seems like team Turkey will not rest... gl everyone
Completly agree with what Menethil said, I lack to understand why 1 round difference granted us a 'way easier' path(no disrespect to our opponents intended) than what Turkey currently has and is gonna have. This problem already happened in a previous tournament as he stated, solutions should've been seeked related with league lenght and pick order priorities which by the way were changed in a unexpected way hours before the first draft. Now they're forced to either win everything against top teams 6 weeks in a row, and to fail any single of them means risking the placement as the league stage is shortened(I believe wnl had 7 weeks, not 6) and only top 4 go through, which means there's less chances to quality if you drop any point compared to a 7 week league format.Menethil said:

We are prepared to allow your team several alliances to ensure you get enough players for matches, but I cannot allow you to have a Russian player in your team. It's true that this NC is perhaps not as serious as past ones - largely due to the game being taken less seriously by most players due to the shrinking playerbase - but that does not mean that it is not a Nation's Cup. There is already a Russian team, so your team cannot have a Russian player. That is how it has always been. I am aware that nobody from Bulgaria is playing for you, and your players from Belarus are not coming either, which is why we have allowed Pusiak to join your team. We are happy to help out your team by allowing you these other alliances, but it just isn't an option for you to have a Russian player on your team.Jurgen said:Hey. Since Gibby was ignoring me all this time, I've decided to openly declare that Ukrainian team has problems with the players, and I plan to either giving the captain role to another player, or leaving the tournament entirely. As I do not have any back up players.
Everyone knows that I assembled this team from scratch, I even found Lares somewhere, an old star Warband player, but he doesnt play anymore. I made a team out of nothing. Not having experienced players. But even inexperienced players may not come to the match, and this is an auto-defeat for us.
The BeNe team, they did not do anything to get enough players, did not even have to look for them, and still they were allowed to create an alliance.
I wrote about the problem a week ago, before the match with America, but I was ignored. They spent a whole week to give me a negative answer: I asked to give me ONE Russian player to continue, because none of the other countries have players: Bulgaria, Serbia, Belarus, nobody. If the administration allows us to take only one Russian person in the team, I will continue. I am the only one active player in this team, thus I have no co-captain. I do everything myself.
I apologize to the Czech team. If we decide this before our Saturday match with her, I will be glad. If not, you can not do anything.
