I think it should be Top 500. :roll: ;)

Count me in please (current PD ranking 74 but hopefully set to go back up a bit 8-) )

Since you said not all aspects of the format are set might I suggest:

a) all games be anonymous player
b) at least initially have the top 2/7ths of the field (i.e. top 20 if we get 70 - 76 participants, top 22 if we get 77 - 83, etc.) seeded and distributed so that there are 2 seeded players in each game and only 1 top 10 (or 11, etc.) per game, 1 2nd 10, etc.
c) games be no longer than 2/1/1 to keep things moving with participants needing to block out periods when they cannot play well ahead of time
d) negative points for surrenderers
e) early round games end Fall 1910 with partial points awarded by territory held to keep things moving

I'm very interested. But with my oddball career in transportation, I cannot do anything quicker than 48/24/24.

While it's nice to keep things moving, most of us have actual lives. 48/24/24 might even be on the quick side for many (and I don't even have kids!).

Definitely in, I second Minneapolitan's mention that 48/24/24 is probably the shortest doable deadline for me. Look forward to playing against some top competition.

I'd also be interested - although as stated above deadlines might be an issue for me. Anything shorter than 2/1/1 would probably be a deal breaker. I would like to hear more about it though!
