    Might be a reasonable point. If we did this 2 weeks would probably be too little time for one season (unless Divisions were very small, say 4 people.)

    I take Chainsaw's point, but for this first attempt I think we can keep the effort required low enough that simultaneous matches will be practical, and I'd like to get it wrapped up quickly.

    The people who've expressed interest are:

    Peter Radiator Full Pig
    Web Cole
    Jolima
    Chainsaw Hands
    MasterBoo
    RiseandShock
    susanexpress1
    desvergeh
    Cooper
    Vexing Vision
    circle
    Protagoras
    CMaster
    WombatDeath

    That's 14 people, though I expect that a few may drop out. If we have fewer than twelve players we'll just have one division; if it's twelve or more we'll have two.

    We will kick things off on August 1st, and the matches will take place over a maximum of two weeks. If you still want to participate, please add yourself to this Google spreadsheet. Next weekend (30-31 July) I will randomise the players and make it clear who needs to challenge who. (Whom? Never mind). Anyone who hasn't yet expressed interest is welcome to add themselves to the spreadsheet.

    Susanexpress1 is a spam bot, so I'd scratch that one. I definitely think simultaneous matches is the way to go - people can still play sequentially within that if they like.

    Two weeks is too fast for me currently (especially in August where at least an entire week will disappear down the drain of life that is GamesCom), so I'll drop out but will keep an eye on this for future seasons.

    Good luck!

    Feel free to challenge me in the game for a friendly whatever match. :) I'm just not able to fire up the game very often.

    God, that is obviously a sunglasses wearing, winking, broadly smiling smiley face.

    You need to brush up on your smiley-tology...

    P.S.
    This totally doesn't mean I put the smiley there. Just passing by.

    I'd love to do this, and maybe I can get a few meatspace friends in to have two good divisions, what with this weekend's sale. A week is a good timeframe -- as long as the games aren't disrupted by the whole time zone thing (I can only play 7-11 GMT-5, so for anyone in Britain it'd be an issue to match turns at midnight thru 4am, and seven plus turns is cutting it a bit close).

    The more the merrier; add yourself to the list!

    I don't know how to add myself to the list. I am a noob.

    I will probably lose every round I'm no good at this game yet. Or ever.

    There is a tournament patch coming next week to steam! Should it be put off till then?

    Probably a good idea. The tournament interface looks nice and straightforward and should make things a lot easier. With any luck the next patch will add knockout tourneys too.

    That's good timing, and thank you for pointing this out! Does anyone know if the new tournament interfaces supports league-style events? If so we will delay the start of this until the patch is out.

    From the blog post:

    ...you can easily put everyone [...] into a tourny and have an all-play-all mini-championship. We will be working [...] to improve this feature, adding requested features.
    So currently it's just a league-type tourney, but they're adding stuff.
