How does everyone feel about having completely randomised fixtures? Or would you prefer seedings? Which, to me, takes away from the fun aspect because then you basically know who's going to win from the get go, and this way we have underdogs and upsets, etc.
Any format proposals would be greatly appreciated, itbt.

Good cases for both to be honest. Probably prefer seedings to make it fairer for the quality teams.

How many weeks is this scheduled to run for? If it's eight or less count me in, if it's more then it'll depend how far I get in the cup. Anyway, I think this season's CW cup will be more open due to the PFL ramifications from FC. I certainly wouldn't be expecting to win it.
I'll barely be playing anyone good.
re: seedings, I used to care, but with FC now I cbf, so randomise it. Only ****s who'll complain are Scaly and d00f, and both are either gone or never around anyway.

We'll do random fixtures, and start it when the last team is out of the cup. Unless anyone has objections to that. If so, you better make them damn compelling

Seeing as though this will surely pipe up, I'll just say my piece.
I don't care if he plays, and on the way he went last time he probably deserves to, but jeez, now that he's been given an extra six months on his ban I think it's time to cut the cord.
I prefer seedings TBH, looking at what happened last time you get some really pathetic groups with some really crap sides or some groups with all top sides. With the nature of most sides on here, there is generally a steady flow from the top to the bottom with a lot of sides around the middle range. Your going to get a lot of upsets anyway.
I put in a lot of time to work out all the ranking based on cup results last season and I would be kind of annoyed if it went to waste. Buts its your call Greg.
Also i rather a knockout format, then group format due to PFL factors. The shorter the format the better IMO.

Well, if I can remember who all the previous winners of the cup were, I would make sure that they don't play each other in the first or second rounds. The rest would be entirely random, however.
