Is this posted on the site somewhere? Last I checked the ranking system does not divide out Gunboat in the game types. It shows Gunboat in percentages of games played but only game types like classic, AoE, Build anywhere, Fleet Rome etc are shown by rank. I assume you have a way of finding this information internally but it would be nice, for the league and in general, to be able to see one's rank in only gunboat games v "communication" games.

You're absolutely right. Because I knew the rankings could be broken down I assumed they could be broken into Gunboat... but not the case. So it will be the main rankings that are used, and I've changed the rules.

It looks like you've already got 21 players, but I would like to sign up as well, so that I can join if there are 4 tiers.
When's the league likely to start?

I think they should be broken down that way, that there should be a "only gunboat" ranking, especially now that a league has started. I have posted about that in suggestions section before.

The next target for numbers of participants is 28, which will give us the same structure as the PDCL: Div 1, Div 2, Div 3 Pools A & B.

Two relegated from Div 1, two promoted from Div 2; three relegated from Div 2, winners of both pools and the best 2nd-place player promoted from Div 3.

The tournament will start within the next two weeks. The poll on end date for games not finishing in a solo/draw has just under two weeks to run. Once we reach 28 players, other sign-ups will be taken for the reserves list, unless we get to 35 of course ;)
