I would like to be captain of Eastern Europe. Just to prove that I have a bloodline with them (but its a bit complicated): my child will be half Eastern European while I'm from West Europe, but feel more connection with Eastern Europe since I live here. Let me know if I qualify.

If I can just pop in, do you mind doing all of Europe, as there can only be seven teams, and I have no relation to any of the current ones.

Now I'm not the best player in Europe but I think I'll start recruiting an West European Team as a provisional Captain
and we see about the best players to play for Europe

I have a question about the scoring.

A team gets one point for a won Game, does that means that we play for solo's only?

Or is a draw win equal in Scoring as a solo? It may affect the tactics for the team

Oh..

How about this:

Any sort of draw counts for half a point, a solo counts for 1 point.

Team with the most points wins that round.

sound good?

yes but then a two way has the same scoring as a three or a four way draw.

The normal scoring system is not good because that would mean that a solo win nearly wins the whole round for that Game

perhaps something in between:

5/3/2/1,5 Points or something like that.

The detour scoring system as it is used in other tournaments doesn't work here because of the FoW game

Alright, how about 5 points for your team for a solo, 3 points for a 2 way, 2 points for a 3 way, and 1 point for a 4 way?

that's great for me,
what do the other Teams say?

As far as I know Team Africa and Team West Europe are ready to go what about the others?

Most are still stuck at 1 or 2 players and are in active. QoH kind of screwed things up for the Eastern US team.
