    Sign-ups



    Okay, that's perhaps a little over the top....

    As you are no doubt aware, this has been off and on for a while now but I still like doing this and get a kick out of it. I think reducing the number of doubles events makes it far more managable and probably more enjoyable for you guys as half of them didn't have good CWLand teams in them anyway. But part of the reason this fell away last time was because of a lack of activity - partly because it was a Masters event and partly because it was so long between drinks.

    For this to continue in the future I probably need more active players. To do this I'm going to be looking for new players (or even some of the older ones) to increase the number of people we have. I think part of the problem for new guys is that as soon as they sign up, they get stuck with an unranked character that despite my best efforts still takes half a season to be competitive. So, my answer to that is to allow new players to take over existing players and convert them to a CWLand nationality. It won't be the best players, but certainly guys ranked around 50-150 who are at least going to be playing some of the bigger tournaments. Once allocated an existing player, I'll give you a short biography in the media thread about their achievements, past tournaments, etc. Obviously they also have the choice of going through the minor tournaments like everybody else.

    Furthermore, if any existing players are interested they can also take control over another player. They won't be converted to a CWLand nationality, but you can choose where they play and it gives you someone else to concentrate on when your player inevitable bombs out. I'm guessing that those who have been here since way back in 2008 may want to take over the schedule of someone they signed up with, but you can make your requests or just ask for someone random.

    Thoughts? Any other suggestions? I'm keen on making this work again.

    Would be great to have it back. Not too many of the original sign-ups are still knocking around though, so definitely there's a need for some new blood.

    Love this game. Happy to contribute. I'd like to control the destiny of Pat Hewitt.

    Perhaps a way to make it more realistic, is we could be coaches that have control over 2 or even 3 players. Just an idea (and probably not a good one).

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Looking at that list, will take Becker Haas, rather than Hewitt.

    I like that idea. Honestly, I'm up for anything if it means increasing participation in this because it is the interaction and the trash talking that makes it (as it did for CWXI).

    I always keep an eye out for the Onwye Brothers. Bought a few books from Ross before as it happens. And good old Murph. The Samoan tennis player. Yeah, right!!

    Yeah that'd be cool. Maxum and Korpinen the ones to really get hit by a reduction in doubles, but still have decent singles rankings anyway.

    Not really keen to take anyone else on, but I still plan to dominate every 5th tournament with Drake.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Is it OK if I sign up?

    If so: Simming Name - Julian Clipton-Marshall
    Hometown - Cambridge (well, City technically, but what the hell)
    Age - 23
    Handedness - Left-handed
    Speciality - Grass Courts

    Biography: A throwback to a bygone age, young Clipton-Marshall,a man reputedly of considerable breeding stock and educated at the traditional upper-class networks of Eton and Cambridge, and a three-time Blue at Tennis, Racquets and Cricket, is now looking to make waves in his preferred sport of Lawn Tennis. Clipton-Marshall is primarily a grass-courts player, however he has also shown himself to be an excellent doubles player, where his fantastic volleying ability comes more into play. He has a reputation as being very erratic, but his lefty serve-and-volley game is capable of destroying the very best "on his day". On and off the court, Clipton-Marshall is quite the character; he certainly does his best to live up to his "eccentric aristocrat" image with his haughty on-court mannerisms, and is reputed to lead a somewhat playboy lifestyle when he's not playing tennis. If and when he settles down, though, there's no reason that Clipton-Marshall can't be a Top 10 player at least.
    My Supporting XI: V Sehwag, T Iqbal, S Katich (c), K Sangakkara, S Chanderpaul, E Morgan, S Al Hasan, M Rahim (+), G Swann, D Steyn, Z Khan
