    This is an early announcement. I'd better get practicing!

    • My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.

    • Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

    • With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

    • I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

    By the way, it would be cool AND fair if the final tournament this time is a double elimination instead of single elimination.

    Here is explained how it works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-...ion_tournament

    As a spectator with zero chance of qualifying, I agree with other poster who suggested World Cup format, but with double-elimination in knock-out rounds. Seems like a fair way to determine champ. Should be fun to watch.

    qualifiers --> group stage --> double-elimination knock-out stage --> champ

    Maybe you guys should refer to the Organized Play section, there will be regional tournaments and everyone has a chance!

    Exciting, but also announced a bit early, isn't it? Life goes on outside of shadow era and even the internet and half the people qualifying for something more than half a year in the future might not be around anymore by then.
    A1's man without qualities - Evolution in theory.

    My cards ideas: for mages, for others

    Songs about Wulven by: TV on the Radio, Babel, Warren Zevon

    However much one kind of longs to see the actors in war outdo each other in cunning activity, finesse, and stratagem, still one has to admit that these qualities show themselves but little in history and have rarely been able to emerge from amongst the mass of relations and circumstances.
    The reason for this is obvious enough: Strategy knows no other activity than the arrangement of combats with the measures which relate to it. It doesn't know, like ordinary life, actions that consist of mere words, i.e. expressions, declarations, etc. But these, which are inexpensive, are what the crafty one prefers to deceive with.
    This sober truth is always felt through and through by the actor in war and therefore he ceases to fancy a game of shrewd agility. Necessity presses so hard into immediate action that there is no room left for it. In a word, the pieces on the strategical chessboard lack the mobility that is the element of stratagem and cunning. - CvC, On War

    Very exciting. My slim to zero chance made harder by the fact it's only top 16, and one spot already filled. But agree that anyone making the top 16, must be flipping giants of the game...or Named Men to use a Joe Abercrombie* phrase.
