Season 20 - No limits hold em tournament
« on: July 26, 2015, 07:44:38 PM »
Season 19 is on the books, so it's time start the extra extra seson XX. This is the no TV limits season, so any team that's played only in NUL ever is eligable to take part.

Official Stuff
----------------------------
- This is the 3rd season from the set of 3, so there will be NO TV limit.
- Only new teams or teams that have been played in previous NUL-leagues.
- League will be played with normal 1 match week per 1 real-time week pace.
- As last season, we'll be enforcing the rule that if you don't show up to play a game on agreed time AND you don't tell about your absense at least an hour before the match in the forum, you'll forfeit the game with an 2-0 admin loss to your opponent who is waiting for you.
- ALL NEW COACHES ARE WELCOME! This is your chance of glory by starting every game with treasure trove of incentives! Start a goblin team and start practicing how to spend 1 000 000 gold pieces in incentives in three minutes!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR NEW COACHES:
1. Read the introductory thread with the explanation on league structure HERE.
2: Create an account on this forum. Note that due to high activity from spam-bots, admins have to approve your account before you can post here. This shouldn't take longer than a day or two.
3: Post a reply in this thread that you want to join.
4: Read the "Essential rules" section HERE and post a reply in that thread that you have understood the rules.
5: The admin team will add you on the participant list in this post.

OLD Coaches now the drill, just tell what team you'll be taking to the trophy hunt.

ALSO, when you sign-up, please tell if there's still some summer vacation stuff or other delays going on so that we won't try to start too early when everybody is still on vacation.  Let's try to get started in two weeks time or so.

---------------------------------------

I'll make another go but I'm not sure which team it'll be. Orcs really don't make me frenzied so I might give amazons or necros another chance if they look up to withstanding such high-TV season.

Sign Ups:
01. J-Reedy - Da Beatmores (Orc)
02. Equilibri - World of Cheese (Skaven)
03. Kvasilad - Phin Phighters (Lizardmen)
04. The Golden Arrow - Discworld Allstars (Dark Elf)
05. Gnaarkill - Ogre Kingdoms Wrestling Foundation (Ogre)
06. Barmution - The Emperor's New Boots (Human)
07. Mr B - Dark Souls II (Vampire)
08. Hakos - on standby
09.

I will play, off course!
Not really sure which team, though... Feels like it is to risky to play with the rats, so my orcs maybe will make a comeback...

But sign me up!

Well, the only way is down from here, so I won't pass up the chance to have a disappointing season with the lizzards! (I feel that's the way Rincewind would spell it)

Ok, I can see some diferent options for me here

1. Odd number of teams ==> I take a break
2. Even number of teams, most teams are the same as S19 ==> I will stick with FC Excelsior
3. Even number of teams, some old ones coming back ==> Most likely I will play a brand new halfling team

I will decide as soon as I see how other coaches are signing up and with what.

Even after what I said in the semi-final regarding Humans as a team (they kind of suck) it would feel like a major cop out to go back to DaE or Chorfs after getting to the POs in season 2. So I'm sticking with the Boots, come hell or high water. Hoping for high water as we're somewhat specialized in the footwear department.

OK, as we at least 8 players now, let's start kicking this league into action.

Let's go with the start date of next Monday that is August 10th at the latest. So everybody should sign-up and decide on their team by prefereably by Friday and we'll set up the league on the weekend.

As most of the folks seem to be continuing with the old teams, I guess I'll also take Da Beatmores on one final tour.

Nice! Bring it on! ;D

@Equi.
Champions never quit, do they? Even though hes risking his life once again, at least if he dies he will surely be remembered as a true legend. So eithter way i think you are doing the right thing to go with the rats for one more legendary season ;D
Will be a pleasure to go against the All-star superstar Edmund again 8)

I really dont like the sound of bloodthirst (or is it just the Bonehead speaking?) in that voice... Sounds like you are hoping to be the Emmenthaler-slayer this season...  ;)
Anyway, Edmund and his fellow cheeze-lovers will enjoy running between your ogres legs one more time! :D
