    It finally started
    I guess it is 37 groups of 12 and one group of 11, so at the least 38 players go on to round two.

    My group:
    1.crusoe
    2.abigham
    3.Zipdrive Nightmare
    4.RBHILL
    5.beermaestro
    6.I Diddy
    7.jose teixeira
    8.marcof2
    9.johnjava21
    10.WIZ
    11.toffee
    12.Taqju

    300-500 entrants requires groupsize 8
    LOL 455 players and groups of 12.

    Look, it's a title!

    Personally my hope is ppl play these games fast (which seems to be what is happening) and Russ allows the top 2 to advance. It seems kinda rediculous to have a 455 player tournament go down to a 35 or so person tournament in just one round. I know there's only so much time left a year, but that chucks a lot of ppl out of the biggest tourney of the year very quickly and respectively they hardly get a chance. For most ppl, the 2005 championship is merely the "January championship" at this rate. Of course, in the event of a 2 way tie for first in a group, the second place wildcard is discarded for that group.

    Gets my rec. I didn't think the groups had to be this large. 7-8 would have worked out perfectly. So allowing 1st and 2nd through to the second round would compensate and keep the interest and enthusiam going for longer.

    I hope they allow at least 2 into the next round. 4 would be nice. If you have a couple of bad games it could be finished for you. I think it would be nice to have this tournament run for most of the year if possible.

    No doubt at least 2, you could even make a good argument for 3 or 4.

    I suspect all my games will be over in the next week or so, although some may go for months yet !?!
