The Big News: The Pensblog Cup

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this took longer than expected to announce but nonetheless here it is.

I am pleased to announce that a intrasquad tournament will be held in the coming weeks that will be called The Pensblog Cup (creative title eh? I made it up myself believe it or not). The tournament will consist of anywhere from 4-6 teams made up of members of Team Pensblog. The number of teams depends on the feedback we receive from the members. We look to try to hold this monthly or semi-monthly with the current title holders names on display on the blog for millions dozens of people to see every day.

Format and Rules:
  • A round robin format meaning all teams will play each other.
  • Each matchup will be a 3 game series to ensure that getting jobbed will not cost you too much.
  • The top two teams will play a 5 game series to determine the winner.
  • In the event of a tie during the tournament, the 2 teams that are tied will play a 1 game playoff to determine who will play for the cup.
  • The tournament will take place over a 3 or 4 day time frame.
  • The date and times will be decided by what is best or close to best for everyone or mostly everyone.
Registration:
  • Registration will begin immediately. Email me at zboslett12@yahoo.com if you are interested in captaining a team. The new members of Team Pensblog will be included in the next competition but I stuck with the regular, dedicated players to make up the first roster.
  • The team name "Free Candy" is already taken.
  • The gamertags listed in white are "free agents."
  • Captains, talk to your fellow team members and try to organize into teams. Email me with a team name, who is captain, and team members gamertags.
I hope this was worth the wait. We are excited about this and hope we have full participation. More details will follow as we figure them out along with updated rosters.


UPDATE: Team Billy Tibbets added and team E added

Oh yea, how many people to a team? Are there limits or minimum numbers needed?

Mr Pockets 12 said...

We are looking at 5 or 6 per team. 6 if you want to play with a goalie, although i wouldn't recommend it.

Mr Pockets 12 said...

The team name "the bread line" has been taken... although i doubt anyone else would take it. Anyone being a captain?
