UNAC Survey

Hey folks, I'm conducting a survey to gather some opinions on certain topics related to UNAC. If you want to participate, please fill out the survey and PM me your answers. If you want to fill out the survey, please do it in one of two ways: write the question number followed by the answer OR copy and paste the survey and bold/underline your answer.

Thanks! Initial results will be tallied and posted in a week from now.  Feel free to leave a comment here or in your survey PM.
Most of the stuff has to do with general stuff or stuff that's already set in stone for this tourney--I don't think opinions would change that much. Likewise, we've had two UNACs in the past to build up experiences.

Edit: I've changed slight how I'm going to post the results. Initial results will be posted one week from today, and I will update the results if/when more submissions are received.
11. What faction system should be used? (Assume no doubles ie. Nords v. Nords)
Fixed    Free Selection    Free selection-no repeats    Other(Specify)

Allowing mirrored factions on a tiebreaker map seems most fair, IMO. It ties in with question 10 in that I think it's also best if the tiebreaker is played on an inherently balanced (which is to say, mirrored) map, chosen from a pool of similar maps either as a fixture or on demand.
