Apterous World Cup 2018: Qualifying

Post by Matt Morrison » Thu Jul 19, 2018 3:34 pm

It's later than the real World Cup this time, but this is still fucking happening!

32 players.
Obviously. One per team in the real thing.
However, the tournament is most definitely open to all - we'll just run a qualifying round as before to whittle down to 32. Last time we had 48 entrants, of which 16 top players were automatically seeded and the other 32 played off for the final 16 places. I don't intend to put a limit on signups this time, so if we have more than 48 I'll find a way to work it out.
As before, at some point after the 32 players are confirmed, team assignations will match apterous ratings to FIFA rankings (pre-World Cup).


Gameplay.
Went well before. "Apterous World Cup" format on apterous. Winners only scoring, 7 rounds (LLNLLLN).
Extra time (LNLN) and penalties (CCCCC+) separate draws in qualifying and knockout stages.
In the group stages draws count (last time we did this the "allow draws" wasn't an option for tournaments, retro!).
The nations that make up the initial groups will mirror the real world cup - see the wiki article for more info.


Entry requirements.
Be reliable. Have a real photo of you that I can access either via Facebook or you emailing it to me. Haters gonna hate.

Qualifying will be set up, announced and begin around 14th/15th August kind of time.
Only 35 signups so far, so hoping we can get closer to the 48 of last time... come on!
