        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I'm in the one of PC now, so if they collide then I can't do this, but if they are done at seperate times, I'd be happy to stay in this as well.

    the pfl system is a load of crap imo. essentially it suggests that 17yos enter the cricketing world, fat and unfit. this means that they spend their teenage years toiling with fitness and skill training. whilst fitness always helps, fitness isn't that essential in cricket especially compared to other sports like middle distance running, for instance. i once tried to convey this argument in the suggestions forum to a muted response of people unable to see logic. very disappointing.

    The Battrick hierarchy is way too rigid, it needs to evolve way more. Having an incompetent programmer running things doesn't help.

    hattrick has a system where stamina training always is a certain percentage of your sides training each week with the minimum set at 5%. this is a system that battrick should introduce. its far more realistic. the current system suggests that the average battrick cricketer is a fat lazy individual like fat inzamam ul huq..

    13 starters then.

    i propose 4 groups of 3. a playoff between Killers CC and the side who'd have been seeded 12th for the final spot.

    When will this be played?

    Tomorrow I'm free, the next 2 are part of the PC Cup, then if I make the finals, which I doubt, I couldn't be busy for 5 more friendlies.

    dude, if you're already playing in another cup, it kinda defeats the purpose of signing up for this one


    with killers effectively stratched, we should probably work towards a 12 team comp, 4 groups of 3. top 2 advancing to the quarters. boom.

    well, it was only 4 days.

    either way, chaminda, or mahindinho set up the seedings and groups. i don't mind helping with the tables once games get underway.

    Agreed. The other possibility is 3 groups of 4, but this way allows a bit greater flexibility.

    I think we've only got six more friendly dates this season -- last league fixture is 11/9, so add one that week, and one after.

    We'll have 4 groups of 3, STARTING THIS SUNDAY. I _think_ we'll have an extra week at the end of it all for contingency, but am not sure. We can still have a group of 4 if Killers really want in, but they'd have to commit to the dates below. Sorry, Jakester.

    SO DON'T ACCEPT ANY FRIENDLIES! If you have sorted a friendly this week, that should be alright, but please say so now.

    Schedule will be:

    16/8: Group Match 1 (A vs B) *
    23/8: Group Match 2 (A vs C)
    30/8: Group Match 3 (B vs C)
    6/9: QFs
    13/9: SFs
    20/9: Final

    * C doesn't play during the first week. Hopefully that'll allow us to include whoever's booked a friendly already!

    Apologies for being a numpty and not getting this sorted until now.

    So, I've drawn up the teams, ranked them, and come up with some seedings. Central Districts and Magical Ponies were the closest split, with the former shading it thanks to a previous RU spot in the CW Cup.

    "CW Rating" is taken from the Ratings thread. For Killers and Dee Crew, I've taken the best rating from their last 4 league matches.

    "Quotient" is how well a team has done in the CW Cup before -- 20pts for an outright win, 15 for being runners-up, 10 for a SF spot and 5 for each QF appearance. Raw numebrs taken from Nibbs's table towards the end of the CW Cup Season 11 thread.

    "Sum" is just that -- Rating + Quotient.

    For the groups, I took each seeded tier and rolled a die -- when I rolled 1-4, that corresponded to groups A-D. If 5, 6 or a previously rolled number, I re-rolled.

    Lastly, "Code" is the team's ID for the group stages.
    Game 1 will be X1 vs X2
    Game 2 will be X1 vs X3
    Game 3 will be X2 vs X3
    (could change if people already have friendlies booked)

    Code:
